3D Technology Checklist

This product is 3D-related. To help you get a great 3D experience, use our checklist below to ensure that you have everything you need. If you have any questions or want to learn more about 3D, we invite you to visit 3D 101--our center for everything 3D. To get started with 3D, please ensure that you have:

A Display

The first--and most important--item you'll need is a 3D-ready display--whether it be a 3D HDTV, 3D projector, or 3D computer monitor. These displays usually have a higher processing power than older models as they need to display one image for each eye to create a 3D effect.

A Source

While your display is ready for 3D playback, you still need a device to read 3D content (i.e., a movie or a show). This source can be a cable box with a subscription to a 3D channel, a 3D Blu-ray Disc player, or a PlayStation 3.


In order to watch 3D, you will need to get some 3D content. This 3D content will come from the source mentioned above in the form of a 3D program, movie, or game. Please ensure that your 3D movies are in the Blu-ray 3D format, as this new format will provide the best 3D experience.

3D Glasses

All 3D HDTVs on the market require Active Shutter glasses to create the 3D effect. You will need to buy one pair of glasses for each viewer. Also make sure that the Active Shutter glasses you buy are compatible with your display--for example, buy the glasses from the same brand as your 3D HDTV.

HDMI Cable

To connect your source (such as a 3D Blu-ray Disc player) to your display, you'll need a hgh-speed HDMI cable. Cables with this designation--with bandwidth speeds up to 10.2 Gbps (gigabits per second)--will be able to carry the 3D signal without any loss of quality.
If you want to get more information about 3D, shop our 3D products, watch videos, or interact with other customers, visit 3D 101, our customer center about everything 3D.

Which Size HDTV is Right for My Room?

HDTV Size chart
With standard-definition TVs, the rule used to be that viewers would feel comfortable watching a set from a distance of 3 to 6 times the screen size in inches. With HDTV, the resolution is so much better that you can sit closer to a larger TV without noticing the pixels. So with HDTVs, the rule tends to be you can sit anywhere from 1.5 to 3 times the screen size (in inches) for the best experience.

If you know the size of the room you have already, where you want to sit, and where your new HDTV should go once you get it, you can figure out the size HDTV you should get.

  • Minimum size = Viewing distance/3
  • Maximum size=Viewing distance/1.5

==Updated Jan 20th==

My first impression was positive, the hardware is beautiful and appears well made, the interface too initially seems pretty good. The 2D picture is great and the price is very appealing.

That said... Be warned the 3D crosstalk on this television is TERRIBLE! We bought it with hopes primarily of enjoying a bunch of 3D games on our PS3 (Call of Duty: Black Ops and Gran Turismo 5) only to be confronted with staggering crosstalk and ghosting. It was bad enough that my wife asked "Is the TV broken?" I find that the 3D crosstalk makes playing some games dizzying, annoying and fatiguing. In particular scenes with black on a bright (usually white) background will have your eyes crossing and head aching. For the record, we've tried with both 1.3x and 1.4 HDMI cables to no avail.

(Note: As of Dec 8th the following seems to no longer be an issue) Furthermore after viewing 3D content on the PS3 and then returning to the XMB we'd be in a very messed up state where the LG UI was corrupted and remained so until another 3D movie was played. Really screwy stuff. Hopefully we'll get a firmware update on the PS3 or LG end soon?

Update (Nov 29th): Please see the user images above for examples of the crosstalk in 3D video.

Update (Nov 30th): We've called LG twice about the crosstalk, the first call consisted of a 45 minute wait before they insisted we end the call and try against another kind of 3D content (we did, the problem persisted). The second call resulted in a 60 minute wait, speaking to a person for 2 minutes to confirm my name and phone number, then a 10 minute wait before being accidentally hung up on... LG is _really_ not impressing me here.

I purchased the 47LX6500 bundled with the BX580 Blue-Ray 3D DVD player and 4 pairs of the LG 3D active shutter glasses. The 2D picture display was great right out of the box. You can cutomize the display but I went back to the standard settings. The first 3D viewing was not that great. I subscribe to Comcast and there is a limited amount of 3D content On Demand. These are olded 3D formats and there is significant ghosting. The only 3D Blue-Ray DVD I could get my hands on is Monster House. The 3D was much better but there was fast action blurring. I don't believe Monster House was created in 3D just upgraded. We watched the ESPN 3D broadcast of the Ohio State game and the 3D was tremendous! I've said all that just to say that the 3D experiance depends on the quality and format of what your watching. The TV can definantly display it. My only complaint is there are no standand RCA type output jacks for audio to connect to my stero system. It does of course have home theater digital output. I'm glad I've waited on the purchase of an HDTV and that this is the package I've got.

While there is a lot to like about this TV (and why I still rated it 3-stars [CHANGED TO 5-STARS! See update #3]), I will choose to focus my review on what I feel is (was) the only real issue with it.

(You can go read the other reviews to hear about how nice the image quality is, how thin the TV is, how well the DLNA works, how polished the menu system feels, and whatever people might think about the various apps.)

The reason I chose an LCD over a Plasma comes down to the 120/240 Hz smoothing. (Colors, black-level, and input lag [mainly for gaming] weren't high on my list of considerations.)


Yes, I know plasmas refresh at 600 Hz, but it seems the manufacturers of those TVs have chosen to focus on delivering the 24/30/60 Hz source material as true to the original as possible. As such, you get your 60 Hz television feed as 60 discrete images shown to you over the course of a second. (Ok, I know it's like 59.6245 Hz, but we're going to go with 60). I do not like way that looks. That's not how the world looks and that's not how CRTs generally worked. And that's why I went with the LCD.

With an LCD, you do get some blurring between frames, but I kind of like that. I find it more pleasant to look at than the "chunk, chunk, chunk" look of "here's a frame, here's a frame, here's a frame" plasmas give. On top of that, 120/240 Hz LCDs now almost all (as far as I know) have the ability to "interpolate" (essentially "make up") new image frames to go in-between the frames it is being fed.

The TV gives very good pictures for 2D content. I need to play with the settings to find a good configuration. The Eco sensor function is actually pretty annoying, and I disable it for all input sources.

The 3D effect is disappointing. There is significant leaking from one eye to the other, resulting in a blurry 3D effect, and probably a headache if you watch it for an extended period of time.

I bought this LG 3D TV due to its good price, the purpose that I bought this LG TV was want to enjoy the 3D, not 2D. But the 3D image of this TV is unacceptable, it has serious ghosting, even though I update firmware and adjusted the left/right function on the remote. It doesn't help.LG customer services can't help.So I returned it,thanks to Amazon TV return policy, then we paid more to buy a Sony NX810, the 3D of Sony is much more better than LG. We are happy with Sony.
