Consumer Reports announced that their annual December Electronics issue will feature a 3D TV comparison featuring 14 3D TVs. Consumer Reports already concluded earlier this year in initial 3D TV test that Plasma sets deliver a better 3D image. Their tests see three Plasma 3D TVs from Panasonic in the lead. Plasma TVs are better at displaying 3D images than LCD sets, primarily because they exhibit less ghosting, or double images that appear even when wearing 3D glasses.

"It remains to be seen whether 3D TV is just a novelty or a new product category in the consumer electronics space," said Paul Reynolds, electronics editor for Consumer Reports. "But, our tests show that there are some fine 3D TV sets out there for those consumers eager for a new experience."

In the tests of Consumer Reports only the Sony LCD 3D TVs came close to the Panasonic Plasma 3D TVs. Consumer Reports is a very well respected institution. Their verdict is a big blow to 3D TV makers that only offer LCD TV options. On the other hand Panasonic is gaining a lot by this big 3D TV review. Their TCP50VT25 series 3D Plasma TVs should get a nice boost in sales now.
