LG's passive 3D technology is great, you can sit and watch 3D for hours without getting a headache, it looks amazing and the 3D glasses are cheap cheap cheap. The picture I found to be excellent, the TV is nice and thin and it has all the modern features like 120hz refresh, 1080p, HDMI, LED and a 3D BluRay player to boot. One thing I was a bit puzzled at was why they gave you two different remotes, you'd think they could just give you one universal remote since you're buying a bundle. Also one modern feature missing from this TV is internet awareness, it doesn't have Netflix, Hulu or any other webTV/IPTv features. I bought the TV primarily for gaming though and for that, this TV is horrible. I have a 5 year old 24" 1080p 60hz 8ms computer monitor that is better for gaming that this modern day LG set. The TV suffers from major Lag issues, no matter if you feed it a 720 or 1080 resolution. There is a slight delay between telling your character to move and him actually moving, likewise when you stop movement, your character moves for a few milliseconds. I can better describe it using my laptop which I hooked up to it via HDMI cable. When i started moving my mouse, the mouse had a few milliseconds delay before moving on the TV. Likewise after is topped moving my finger the pointer stopped on my laptop screen but continued to move for a few milliseconds on the TV. You just can't play today's modern day shooters with this type of lag on the display. So if you're a shooter player looking for a new screen to game on, this isn't going to work for you. Even though the passive 3D technology would let you play for hours on end without a headache, the lag will put you at a competitive disadvantage. Thankfully Walmart took it back with no fuss and I am looking for a new gaming HDTV.
