Rated 3 out of 5 by from Amazing colours but why only 1080p rather than 4k OLED is the technology of the future - unmatchable colours, incredibly thin, amazingly power efficient. With passive 3D this TV is very nice. The only draw back - why is this brand new set only supporting the dated 1080p resolution that has been round for the better part of a decade when there are TVs that support 4K (thats four times the resolution of 1080p) already available? With passive 3D each eye only sees half the pixels, so you really need Ultra HD for the best display, but this TV falls short of that with 1080p Im afraid :(

Rated 2 out of 5 by from OLED to late and to expensive OLED nice but again to late and to expesive for everyone to buy, if you would have taken your money and time into a OLED TV that would be 3D without glasses then you realy would have hit the jackpot, now a waste of time. Same as the LG 84LM9600 big expensive and some bull that tells us it is 4 times as sharp. Come do the math 4X21" 1080 p => (1920x1080)x4=829440 pixels you just buy a 4 times 21 inch on 4 times 1080 p and same sharpness as a normal tv pnly bigger, big waste of time and money.
