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.

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

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.

This TV set does not work with active 3D glasses (battery operated glasses). Only the cheaper, lighter, passive glasses found in movie theaters.

answer 2
NO. Electronci glasses are a part of the Active 3D technology, which is very expensive because the glasses lenses are actually little LCD screens that sync to the TV allowing light to pass through according to the signal coming from the TV.

I'm no doctor, but I would say that can't be the best for our brains. Tricking them like that.

However, Passive 3D, or Cinema3D by LG, Theatre3D, by Vizio do it a little differently. The glasses are just plain old glasses that are polarized, light weight and most importantly CHEAP! The screen of the TV is what allows the 3D content to be "offset" and the glasses do the rest of the work.

Think old school 3D with red and blue, but with a new school twist: full color, crisp images, and in your face 3D!

A new receiver is only required if you pass an HDMI signal from the Blu-Ray player to your receiver and then to your TV, and only if your receiver does not support 3D modes. You can however, output HDMI straight from the Blu-Ray player to the TV and output audio from the TV to a receiver with an optical cable.

If by receiver you are refering to audio receiver only,no HDMI video pass-thru it depends. The tv and 3D bluray player both have Optical out connections. So if your receiver has an optical input, then you would be fine. If not, you may be able to get by with the Headphone out jack on the side of the tv. They make a wire that is 3.5mm (headphone connection) on one end then splits on the other to Stereo L/R (red & white). That may work just fine. But only with Stereo output. Chances are though if your asking this question, you don't have 5.1 surround sound, so it shouldn't be an issue for you to have just Stereo.

I have a Soundbar with my and it works great with the optical.
