Monday, April 12th, 2010

2010 will be the year of the 3D television; the interest may seem uncertain and the costs great but there is no doubt that this is true. With a wealth of information available and several locations to test them out, the only real question that remains is “when?” Below you’ll find a list of this year’s 3D TVs and their release dates.

1. Panasonic TC-PVT25 : Panasonic’s 3D television debuted at Best Buy stores on March 10th and shortly thereafter sold out. Offered as a bundle with a compatible 3D blue ray player these TVs offer great picture, full 1080p in both eyes, access to sites like Twitter, Netflix, Pandora and FoxSports through its VIERRA CAST IPTV, SKYPE video calling, THX certification and wi-fi access.

2. Samsung 9000 Series: Samsung also released their new 3D TVs in March. Their TVs are the first LEDs to be released with the built in 3D processing unit, boast a pencil thin thickness, energy efficiency, wi-fi, 2D to 3D conversion, true 240 Hz 1080p playback, access to several apps through the Samsung app shop (this includes things like Netflix), a full color touch screen remote that allows a 2nd person to watch another channel on the remote, and comes in 46 and 55 inch models. Glasses will have to purchased separately however.

3. LG LX9500 3D TV: This model is slated for early May and comes with quite a few interesting features. With a sleek slim design (about the width of a pencil), 47 or 57 inch screen, and claims to be the first LED 3D TV and to be able to provide that 3D without the glasses. It’s also able to load 3D still shots and other items from your camera without having to convert it on a pc first.

4. Sony Bravia XBR-LX900: Sony’s 3D TV is due out in June this year. The Bravia comes with DNLA connectivity, integrated wi-fi, localized dimming, advanced protection from refracted and reflected light to prevent glare, Sony Intelligence Pr4sence Sensor (this detects if you’re still in the room and dims then shuts off the TV if you are gone for long), accessible content for the Bravia through a line to Sony’s shop, Motionflow Pro 240 Hz and Monlith Design to improve image output, and Opticontrast panel.  The Bravia comes in 40 and 60 inch screen sizes and a slim line look.

5. Vizio XVT Pro Series: These TVs already have quite the reputation for having released a solid HD television at a price that many could afford. Now this company is releasing a 3D TV in August. Their 3D TV comes with LED backlighting technology, a 480Hz refresh rate (which improves image and reduces blurring), smart dimming hardware to improve colors and the depth of blackness, built in wireless HDMI (negating the need for HDMI cables) among other options. All of which makes it an excellent option for those with a low 3D budget who still want a great TV.
