"The visual aspect of this tv is great for the price range, and the passive 3D is a nice extra as well. "

Sound: 17% positive
"The sound quality of the speakers is absolutely horrendous, so if you do get this you HAVE to get external speakers of some kind, which is the main reason I give it 4 stars and not 5. "

Picture Quality: 60% positive
"The quality is lower because the pixel resolution is that of the phone's own screen (960x540) rather than the source (1920x1080 photo, 1280x720 video). "
Screen: 100% positive
"The screen is bright and sharp and there's no doubt it's a 1080P screen. "
User Interface: 0% positive
"The poor black level (1000-1 contrast), the cheap speakers, and cheap remote are what prevents me from rating this any higher. "

"This is very good feature and the 3D really comes out at you. "

Can't touch 42 inch 1080p 3D at this price! Found it on new years for $450. But with no reviews that were out there on it, it's a risk to buy sight unseen. But not really once you have. I thought some of you might be out there looking for someone who had something, anything to say about this specific product.

Curtis is a little known mfr, but their other sets get good reviews where it counts for 3D, in the display. (OBTW, they're NOT the phoenix of Curtis Mathes, an exceptionally high quality mfr that went under in the eighties).

You'll want to read DisplayMate's 3D shootout review on Passive 3D superiority to the earlier (and still market dominant) Active 3D.

[...]

Bought a refurbished Samsung BDC5500 3D player on the same order (yes, it is a pattern you're seeing here). Hooked up both & was watching 3D blu-ray in under an hour last nite for only $530 combined.

PROs: Price, bright clear display, price, 1080p 3D, price, 42in, price, 3D glasses same as Theaters (wink wink)

CONs: So-So audio, Stand can't pivot, cheap Remote (I know cheap), And no good BDC5500 remote code for Curtis TVs, "35" gets ON-OFF control only. Lastly (from my brief experience) the enormous 16" x 23.5" bracket spacing rules out many adjustable wall mounts. I'll have to fab my own.

I've obviously only barely tapped into this TV's feature set, but it did just fine scanning my broadcast TV channels (don't need cable just to watch news), and the HDTV stations I flipped thru come in looking just fine. And yes, as you probably guessed I use bottom-feeder $15/mo DSL (at least I'm not dial-up) so I can't tell you how it does on internet streaming.

Verified Purchase
I bought this TV from Amazon, but with a price match to CompUSA. It arrived last week, and so far, it works perfectly--as well as I could possibly expect for the under-$500 price I paid.

The passive 3D technology (using lightweight polarized glasses) is generally both impressive and unobtrusive.

a) The one true 3D Blu-Ray movie I have watched so far is Disney's Christmas Carol. 3D effects were impressive but not eye-popping. However, I think that was Disney's deliberate intention--to avoid exaggerated 3D effects that might nauseate children and give adults headaches over an hour-and-a-half span.

b) 3D (side-by-side) YouTube videos (streamed from the Internet to my Panasonic BDT215P Blu-Ray player) look good. The TV automatically recognizes side-by-side video and displays it in 3D.

c) 3D photos and videos on my HTC Evo 3D phone play reasonably well, in 3D, on the TV via a simple MHL adapter. The quality is lower because the pixel resolution is that of the phone's own screen (960x540) rather than the source (1920x1080 photo, 1280x720 video).

d) 3D photos and videos from my Evo 3D play better when transferred to a USB stick and plugged into the Panasonic Blu-Ray player. The Panasonic sends side-by-side to the TV, which (again, very conveniently) automatically interprets it as 3D. The only glitch in this procedure is that 3D videos must be remuxed into the .mkv format by a tool such as mkvmerge (and with the obscure option Disable Header Compression enabled).

e) The TV offers 2D-to-3D conversion for anything it displays, from DVDs to broadcast television. This added-3D effect is generally rather minor, but I will probably use it when I can.

I bought an LG Cinema 3D monitor in November. I loved the way the technology worked, but the monitor is only 23", and I wanted something bigger. 42" is large enough to enjoy 3D.

A quick opinion on passive technology. If you plan on entertaining it is the most affordable option, especially with a tv this cheap. I tested a Panasonic plasma 3d that boasted a 600hz refresh rate and I was not impressed, the was far too much flicker. I loved the LG cinema 3D tvs that have 120hz plus, but the are twice the cost of this tv.

I hesitated with this Curtis tv because of its 60hz refresh rate, but here is what I have found:

This tv requires a little more fine tuning to avoid flicker. I have tested it out with Tangled & On Stranger Tides Bluray 3d and they both look great.

The 3d conversion feature is a step up from my lg monitor which relyed on software for conversion. This Curtis tv will natively convert regular bluray to 3d with no loss in quality. The image does not "pop" when converting 2d to 3d, but the depth is impressive. There again this tv may need individual configuration depending on the movie.

I paid 449 at Kmart for this tv. If you can find a similar deal or make amazon do a price match, you have a steal!

Note: I use a pc based system for Bluray 3D playback.

Update: I noticed some "crosstalk" when displaying some bluray 3d movies. I updated my graphics hardware to NVIDIA GTS 520 1gb dedicated. This enabled me to do frame packing on the tv (1080p @ 24hz). Refresh rate seems low, but I said to myself at least 5 times "I can't believe how good this looks". I suppose you will have to tweak it somewhat to your configuration.
