  • A. Passive 3D is better on your eyes, offers a cleaner picture overall, does not darken the screen as much as the glasses are only lightly tinted, the glasses do not need recharging or batteries like active glasses, and it is better on your wallet as you can keep the glasses from your local movie theater since it's the same tech and passive 3D TV's also come with at least 4 pairs verses the 2 you get with active sets.

  • A. The SONY answer is incorrect. This model 550 and the new 4k Sonys use passive technology. Therefore they use the lighter weight less expensive passive glasses.

  • A. Active glasses are used with Sony® 3D TVs. The 3D video footage is presented at 120 times per second, a left image and a right image flickers on the screen. In perfect coordination with this, the lenses in the active shutter LCD glasses turn from opaque to transparent. To capture the 3D experience, when the left image in the 3D video is displayed on the screen, the left lens is transparent. As the screen changes to the right image, the left lens turns opaque and the right lens changes to transparent. These changes in the eyeglass lens flicker at a speed of 120 times per second, thus creating the viewable 3D image. Passive glasses are those often used in movie theaters and amusement park rides. The 3D film is comprised of two images shot at different angles and projected onto the screen with two projectors. Each image is polarized to match one passive eyeglass lens and each image is then shown to each eye at the same time. Passive glasses feature different polarizing filters that filter the projected images to both the left eye and the right eye simultaneously.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

The product is listed as LED .. confuses a little when you open it and all reference material with the product says LCD I may need to tweak the settings some as the automatic features noticably switch the level of back lighting up and down during a TV show Picture Clarity is excellent especially for the screen size Got better than expected value as Walmart increased the price after I bought it :-) Looks very smart and as I have it bracket mounted on a stand looks very smart .. CAUTION find a stand before delivery as 60" seems to be the largest TV most of the stands say they accomodate .. I had to compromise as this TV weighs 80lbs I bought a stand for a 60" that holds up to 130 lbs Looks also anhanced by narrow surround

Good Picture, Nice Size, and Simulated 3D

The good things: 1. Out of the Box picture defaults are good enough for casual viewings. Users, however, could opt to fine-tune to their tastes using the Custom Setting option. 2. A 70" screen size is a huge estate to watch sports and movies. With 12ft. viewing distance should put you right in the middle of the actions. 3. The Simulated 3D is a nice to have feature compare to other HDTV in its size and price range. Now the not so good things: 1. Intermittent Black-outs (The LED Backlight shut offs) when playing HD source signals (BD, Stream, etc...) with color spacing settings other than RGB. 2. Cannot connect wireless keyboard and/or mouse to the TV, have to use USB wired types which somewhat inconvenient since most of the USB cables are around 6 ft. long and you need to be 10-12ft. away to really see the picture without seeing the individual pixels!!!! A simple driver to be included with the next Firmware update would be nice. 3. HDMI1 ARC and Optical output could only allow Dolby Digital and PCM signals pass-thru, no luck with DTS signals.

This is our first BIG screen HD TV, replaced a '96 model 35" Proscan which was a high-end set in its day. This unit was recommended by Crutchfield ... an excellent recc. I was unaware of the 3D feature & thought it may be a little gimmicky ... It's not. Of course, the 3D glasses must be worn, but this set is large enough to make good use of the illusion. Clear picture. I was a little concerned about the 120 HZ refresh rate on this size screen. While it could be improved (because it's NOT perfect), the reproduction of the signal with speed remains VERY good. The audio is acceptable, though, undoubtedly a full surround system will compliment. The biggest issue I have with it is tuning broadcast. The "favorites" are a little difficult to program/use ... moreover, DELETE would be a better option. Overall EXCELLENT product.

we were upgrading our 47" sony tv. we looked at several models, samsung, panasonic and LG. when we found out sony had a new 70" model, we were excited. we had compared pictures in display rooms before, and we always thought sony was tops. the new 70" sony is no disappointment. very bright picture, true colors. we had heard about motion flow artifacts, but we have not experienced any noticible problems. our guests have been impressed. one already invited himself over every sunday once football season starts. another said if she had this set at home, they would watch it so much that her and her husband might never speak to eachother again. overall we are very pleased with our purchase and would recommend this TV to anyone interested in a quality 70" picture.
