If you’re looking to purchase a 3D television set this television, Consumer Reports advises that plasma may be a better option than its LCD technology rival in that arena. According to the publication, plasma displays offer little ghosting. Ghosting is an issue where sets display “double images that appear even when wearing 3D glasses.” The publication finds that “Panasonic plasma sets exhibited the least ghosting of any of the 3D TVs Consumer Reports tested, followed by plasma TVs from LG and Samsung, which had slightly more. Sony’s LCD TVs came closest to the plasmas: ghosting was minimal, but only when the viewer’s head was kept level; ghosting became severe when the viewer’s head was titled even slightly. On the LG and Samsung LCD TVs, images had satisfying three-dimensional depth, but ghosting, which was significant in a wide variety of content, was distracting when apparent.” All models tested by the magazine offered “impressive three-dimensional depth,” but the issue of ghosting, otherwise known as crosstalk, “also plays a big part in 3D quality.” The test examined 14 models of 3D teleivisions.
