I'm in the market for a 3D TV. However, I will be using it to play ONLY 3D content from my PC (Blue-Ray discs or other 3D media). Question is: should I bite the bullet and buy a 3D TV or get a normal LED monitor and some passive glasses? The TV set I'm looking at us this: http://m.lg.com/au/t...tv-32LW4500.jsp because it's in my budget.

I'll answer myself and others that might be looking for the same answer: after multiple tests with various equipments, for proper 3D content viewing, one MUST have a 3D TV. Red / Cyan or Green / Magenta glasses just don't cut it.

PS. I went on and bought the LG 32LW4500 3D TV and I must say I'm *very* impressed. Having a HD sattelite card in my HTPC linked to the TV via a 1.4 HDMI cable, the 3D feel is absolutely amazing.

Please read the rules, folks!

Thanks, Tain! Being passive, glasses are very light, no incovenience at all. But the 3D feel is outstanding. Watching National Geographic in HD and using the TV's built-in 2D to 3D conversion makes me feel sometimes part of the action :wub: But first evening I got the TV I decided to watch Ice Age 3 and right in the beginning where the mammoth slides with the turtle shell full of water and drops it made me knock my head against the bed. 5 minutes of swearing and cursing and leson learned: have all the pillows around my head :whistle:

Please read the rules, folks!

3d is nice, but I would hold out until we have "Jetson" televsion. So far it can display a sold image, in a 3d stan still without movement, so this means we can watch teather and news in 3d, but not recorded media. That is later.

I don't know if the feature is ready, but some sports events allows 360/Matrix viewing, too.
