I have an LG 47" passive set. The 2D - 3D conversion works well enough. I found it very good during high action sequences in Iron Man 2. It works well with sports broadcasts. There is no off the screen effect. I dont use it as much as I thought I would but it does a reasonable job as long as your expectations are reasonable.

It is ok. Obviously movies on 3D blu ray look great, but using the up-conversion isn't half bad. I don't want to make it sound worse than it is. You have to remember that the tv doesn't know what is really supposed to be in the front and what is in the background. It's really just guessing. I think by lighting, but I'm not really sure.

I watched Paranormal Activity 3 and used the up-conversion. It looked good however in the kids bedroom, there was a fish tank, the TV had made that look like it was supposed to be in the front, not in the background. It was pretty amusing actually.

But I've also seen things like the Thanksgiving day parade and the Britney Spears concert and both of those were up-converted and they looked very good. I was very impressed. I even tried it on my copy of the original Transformers animated movie (1980's) on blu ray and that looked AMAZING!!! But remember 3D blu ray will always look better than up-converted material. Or 3D TV if you have direct TV.

I only plan on using this feature on Blu-Ray movies and my HD cable is all, and that's what i love so much about today's 3D. I don't expect a bunch of things to keep getting thrown in my face i just want the immersion of feeling as if I'm there is all.

I can't see much difference between 2D and 3D using the conversion on my LG TV. Don't plan on using it.

I've got a 47" LG and a 70" Elite. Both will up-convert 2d to 3d. What I know in my experience is movies shot in native 3d look best, professionally up-converted movies are a close 2nd (with some of them not so great), and in-your-TV up-conversion, 3rd.
3d Blu-rays have a lot of out-of-the-screen effects, while in-the-TV up-conversion is like looking through a window at some fairly accurate and involving 3d. A larger TV really helps. The depth is adjustable and can look great! You'll like it.

Is this product compatible with LG 42LB5610 tv.

It's awesome! The 2D-to-3D conversion adds depth and a feeling of immersion, a really cool feature. I have a lot of fun using it with different movies, shows, and videos games to see how much it changes it. The added 3D effects are much more noticeable in some forms of entertainment over others. Of course, keep in mind that while the 2D to 3D is really neat, it's nothing compared to full-blown 3D Stereoscopic material.

Hi, could you tell me how this works? I just bought a LG 55" 4K 3D tv set and at a loss on how to use this 2D-3D function. The manual is limited and help from LG is just as useless. Also, blu-ray 3D, I was told is only as good as your internet speed. I do not see what internet has to do with a blu-ray 3D disc.

I don't have the LG 4K TV, but I have the 55" 3D TV and I imagine they are similar. On my TV to do the 2D to 3D conversion just take the remore and select 3D. A option comes up on the TV asking you which 3D that you want. Split screen, double screen and some other ones. I always use the 1 screen 3D. I have no idea how the otherones work, but the 1 screen option always looks good. To get a 3D blu ray to work properly, you must have a 3D blu ray player. If you are using a receiver just make sure that it is 3D passive. When you put in a 3D blu ray the tv tells you that you have a 3D selected (it happens automatically) and if you want to watch it in 3D just click enter. If not, you select non 3D, but you actually can convert a 3D movie to 2D. Looks just like a normal blu ray then. The only thing I can think of that would concern the internet is updating your blu ray player with the latest drivers. Unless you stream 3D content from a PS4 or from Vudu. Then obviously internet speed is a concern. Hope this helps

Hi Mark,

I've got set from a couple years ago, the 3-D 55" LG 1080p , but I'm sure it works the same way. When you click "3-D" on the LG remote, the choices it gives you are about how you want the images displayed. This will depend on your equipment. With the LG, I choose "2-D to 3-D". That's all you need to do--except put on your glasses--unless they changed something for the 4K models.This is only if you want to watch native 2-D in 3-D--tv shows, 2-D BD's, etc. It has nothing to do with 3DBD's. When you want out of 3-D mode, just click the "3-D" button on the LG remote.

As for 3-D BD's, there is no connection with the Internet necessary, unless the disc has supplementary material it accesses through the Internet. When you put the 3DBD in your player, it recognizes it and you just watch the screen to see what to do next. Usually there are previews and then the play screen. If you are offered a choice, just choose "play in 3-D". You do NOT press the button on the LG remote. If you don't connect to the Internet--no problem. Your player will play the movie in 3-D if that's what you choose. I think some confusion arises when people think about streaming 3-D movies--which has nothing to do with your 3DBD at home . The slower your connection, the more difficult that process becomes. Also, I've found the picture is not as sharp nor the sound as good as the BD. I know others may disagree with that last point, but a number of us find that to be so. Without dealing with the technical language, that is essentially how it works.

Hope that helps.

Elder Dave, thanks. I suspected as such, just wanted to be sure.

2d converted to 3D just seems to make it float in front of the TV a bit.
