2013 Sony passive 3D LED Televisions


Many of you might know that Sony has opted for 'Passive 3D' technology for 3D models launched this year. So, I'm starting this thread to encourage discussions on the topic. Owners can share their experience & pundits can talk about pros/cons for the benefit of HFV visitors.

Passive 3D models launched by Sony so far:
KDL-55W800A
KDL-47W800A

Re: 2013 Sony passive 3D LED Televisions

Finally, Sony has also adopted the most rewarded 3d technology, it seems like that now all the TV manufacturers are heading to adopt passive technology for their future launches. Furthermore, I haven't reviewed these Sony passive models yet, but I'd like to ask how much passive glasses Sony is giving with these TV?

4 glasses bundled with the TV

Additional ones will cost you Rs. 349 per glass. I think that's cheaper than other brands

I don't support the idea of cheap glass in exchange of subpar pic quality.

If you want proper 3D experience then active is the way to go. If you want cheaper option to 3D then try passive. 4K 3D should be interesting.

Again, the word 'Proper 3D' differs from person to person. I really liked watching in Active 3D, but once I wore the Passive glasses, it was too comfortable. I'd go with passive 3D any day, as long as I sit far from my TV.

Re: 2013 Sony passive 3D LED Televisions

While I have no experience with Sony's 3D technology, I have recently experienced passive 3D at various places.
1. XD at Phoenix Mall
2. 5D at Phoenix Mall
3. 3D movies at Inox, E-Square, Managala and other theaters.

In all cases, I have been utterly disappointed by the quality/ sharpness, brightness.

This may also be due to the type of 3D glasses (perhaps costing less than Rs. 50) and the cleanliness of the material that they use.

I have had a very brief experience of active 3D (Panasonic plasma) and I found that to be very good in comparison. That was just 5 minutes in duration, so no cross-talk or headache was observed.

I hope that passive 3D experience with TV is much better than what you all have experienced at the movie theaters.

You are absolutely correct. The passive 3d in LG shows the same resolution loss. Only when a stick is deliberately poked into your face we tend to get a good kick out of passive 3d.
I recently saw Iron man 3 in Imax 3d. Felt that the 3d did not add any value to the movie and infact degraded the quality of the picture.

Re: 2013 Sony passive 3D LED Televisions

Sony this year went with LG panels instead of Samsung's panel like last year which was troublesome (banding issues etc).. Hence These new tvs are cheaper and passive 3D. These are inferior panels than last years HX850 series. I was really hoping they will launch there R550 series in India like they did in USA they have really big tvs in that series for really cheap price.. but anyways.. This would be as good as HX750 I guess with bit of improvement.

Passive 3D is not full HD, if you want FHD clarity in passive tv it has to be in 4k tv. Hence you won't get clarity of Active 3D which is Full HD in Passive 3D. Its still better as it gives you 3d experience for cheap and as per experts it don't cause headaches like Active 3D does cause of constant shuttering of lens in glasses..

I have decided to stay away from all 3D movies - I am not going to watch Ironman 3 - 3D or Star Trek Into the Darkness 3D. Let me tell you, I am an avid trekkie.
