No one’s quite sure how the 3D movement will shape up when considering the ongoing battle between active and passive 3D technology. However, that isn’t stopping LG from marching soldiers out into the field. Their latest 3D TV model, the 42LW550T, has a 42-inch screen but is smaller than the previously released models in the line. Will that help or hurt LG’s case that passive 3D is the way to go?
The smallest of the 550T line, this particular unit is a member of the “middle of the road” units from LG. Not quite the 650T’s but definitely better than the 450T’s, the 550’s are a solid line that combines price and connectivity. However, the passive 3D thing can be a sticking point for anyone that isn’t buying into LG’s claims that it’s the better technology.
With the 42LW550T, users will get the Smart TV online platform, 100Hz processing and an 8,000,000:1 contrast ratio. The 550 line is designed to offer up the best of both worlds for price-minded, yet tech savvy consumers. LG ‘s success will hinge on the market’s willingness to embrace passive 3D technology. Nobody’s quite sure how this will shape up, but with quality products on both ends of the argument, there’s no doubt that we’ll benefit from the arms race.
