As the other use says this is complete package it is a high quality 3D tv that does 2D well.

120hz is great and active you can only see 30hz.

2d to 3d conversion will let you watch anything from your cable provider in 3D (its not true 3D but it looks really good for sports)

Also active glasses make the TV much dark most passive glasses have a single layer of film and only block 60 units of light and active glasses have 2 and also black out one eye constantly blocking 200-250 units making the picture much darker.

Hope it helps.

I was also looking for a 50 - 55 inch 3D TV. I looked at all available and decided with the LG. Don't go by comments about resolution being half as much as full 1080P or HD. That's all number games. You have to compare it for yourself. I did many side by side comparison and the picture on the LG was brighter and clearer than all others with the active glass technology. They all looked dim compared to LG. I also noticed slight flickering with the active glasses whereas with the LG there was no flickering at all. I use the 2D to 3D conversion feature on my LG and watch many 2D content in 3D very comfortably. So, it is more a personal preference not just technical specification that will make the difference.

This is still a Passive 3D TV. This tv doesnt compare to the active technology that is in the panasonic and samsung. Passive works with 1/2 the resolution of active 3D so if you want cheap glasses with a resolutions that isnt even HD its great, if picture quality is a concern both panasonic and samsung blow it out of the water with FULL HD Resolution!

This TV is essentially built in 3D. You need the TV (included), glasses (included), 3D source such as a Blu-Ray player (included) and 3D media such as a 3D Blu-Ray movie (not included). And then you are all set.

THIS IS WAY BETTER 3D IMAGE, FOR STARTERS IT HAS DEPTH AND IMAGES POP OUT (depending on the scene of a movie of course) vs Panasonic it is only depth and can only be viewed by sitting in straight to the TV set. For Samsung is about less than the same compared to Panasonic.

answer 1
There is a big debate about active VS passive and which is 1080p because active blocks 1 eye reducing the amount of brightness and pixel density. Passive blocks alternating lines at the refresh rate of the TV or 120hz Active does this only at 30hz when 3D mode is on.

My answer is 1080p 30 is not even out yet every one uses 1080p 24 (24 frames per second).

The LG is much more comfortable and they are both using the same source material. Stick with passive if you don't want to be constantly annoyed by your TV.

The tv is of course 55 inches diagonally but from top to bottom it is just under 27 inches in screen size with a 2 or 3 inch frame around the screen itself. The tv is only one inch thick and wall mountable but you will need a wall mount sold separately, it does come with a stand that swivels left or right.

Here in Illinois we paid $1599 but it was well worth it. The glasses alone are a $200 value if purchased separately.

answer 1
The answer to your question is "BOTH". There are 3 big screen technologies. DLP, Plasma, and LCD (I guess 4 if you include a projector and screen). With LCD there are 2 different technolgies to light the screen CCFL (Cold Cathold Fluroescent) and LED (Light Emitting Diode). CCFL uses more energy, but gives a more constant image on viewing angles. LED can give brighter images and better contrast ratio's giving a crisper image at lower power consumption especially on large tv sets 46 inches and up, but the image quality can diminsh greatly when viewing angles are off center.

LED-LCD's are also drastically thinner at about 1" in thickness. Whereas CCFL-LCD's are around 3-4 inches. The cost comparison has come down considerably between the 2 technologies, but CCFL (just labled LCD) is still considerably cheaper on larger sets 46" and up and still provide excellent viewing of HD content. I myself prefer the LCD, mostly because the technology has fewer drawbacks than the LED sector which is constantly undergoing changes to make up for it's draw backs. So much so insead of improving the picture quality, Manufacturers just introduce new features, like Internet and Apps. It is rumored that Nano-LED LCD TV's will be hitting the markets this fall at $3000-$4000 a set.

All LED TVs are LCD TVs, but not vice-versa. LED refers to the type of backlighting and the LCD refers to the type of display panel. So saying LED or LCD is not entirely an apples-to-apples comparison.

It sure does! First night I had it, I watch 3 old movies from my dvd collection in 3D and loved every minute of it. The 3D effect from the conversion is about 98% as good as if the movie was formatted in 3D.
