Samsung’s 3D LED TVs

Q: Would you be interested in a Geekzone evening where you can see, in person, the 3D offerings from the three manufacturers featured in my blog? I may be able to organise such an event, please show your interest here (poll).

Continuing on my adventures in 3D land, last Thursday I was invited to Newton, Auckland to the launch of Samsung's 3D offerings.  Having already seen what Sony and Panasonic are bringing to the market, I have a good grasp on what the possibilities are in this space.

Most of the media in attendance were impressed with the 3D LED TV, however I wasn't as excited about this one.  To Samsung's credit, this TV is already available in retailers - to compare, at their demonstrations Sony were yet to have stock, and Panasonic only had one unit in the whole country!  Being an LED, the TV is very bright, and ridiculously thin, capable of easily hanging on a wall like a picture frame; the glasses are also small and light, though I'm not sure they would fit easily over prescription glasses.

This is where my praise of Samsung ends.  The viewing angle to see the 3D is not very wide or high, and picture is not that clear, and you can see a slight ghosting of the image as action in the movie speeds up.  It's not that it's bad 3D, it's just that there are better offerings out there.

A good effort from Samsung, however if I was to buy a 3D TV, I would go for a Panasonic.
