To help you get a great 3D experience, use the checklist below to ensure you have everything you need.3D viewing requires:
A DisplayFirst, youll need a 3D-ready display--whether its a 3D HDTV, 3D projector, or 3D computer monitor. These displays have moreprocessing power than standard 2D models for displaying 3D images in rapid succession.A SourceYour display may be ready for 3D playback, but youll still need a device to read 3D content. This can be a cable box with asubscription to a 3D channel, a 3D Blu-ray Disc player, or a PlayStation 3 system.3D Content3D content--the actual entertainment, in other words--will be played back using the source mentioned above, whether its a 3Dbroadcast from your cable provider, a 3D Blu-ray Disc, or a 3D video game.3D GlassesFor now, the vast majority of 3D HDTVs require glasses for 3D viewing. Many use powered "active shutter" glasses, otherspolarized "passive" glasses. Youll need one pair per viewer, and theyll have to be compatible with your display, whether theyre thesame brand, or a pair of "universal" glasses designed to work across brands.HDMI CableTo connect your source (such as a 3D Blu-ray Disc player) to your display, youll need a high-speed HDMI cable. Cables with thisdesignation feature bandwidth speeds up to 10.2 Gbps (gigabits per second), for carrying the 3D signal without any loss of quality.If you want to get more information about 3D, shop our 3D products, watch videos, or interact with other customers, we invite youto visit 3D 101, our customer center about everything 3D.

Comments118 of 127 people found the following review helpful Decent 2d TV neither best or worse 120hz option for 3DHDTV,March 4, 2011ByJonathan M Osment-Amazon Verified Purchase(Whats this?)This review is from: Sony BRAVIA KDL40EX720 40-Inch 1080p 3D LED HDTV, Black (Electronics)]UPDATE 3/30/2011: Amazon has removed the 240hz tag from the product title but not the "whats in the box" section. As this 120hzproduct is no longer being incorrectly advertised as 240hz, I am re-adjusting the rating.WARNING: Possible Deal breakerconcerning this TV.NOTICE: As of 3/24/2011, I noticed via the Sony Style website that they state the EX720 is now only 120hz,not this advertised 240hz. I hope this is a typo on Sonys end but if it is not, there is a serious case of false advertisement going on. Iwas specifically on the market to purchase a 240hz HDTV, as the price tag warrants it, and thus this may change the satisfactionlevel of this review. Before you purchase this product, make sure you know there may be a case of false information taking placeregarding the refresh rate.Update: It is confirmed that the this HDTV is NOT 240hz as advertised. It is only 120hz. The rating has
been adjusted purely because it is false marketing and reveals little improvement over previous models which cost much less. One ofthe main reasons to get a 240hz HDTV for 3D is that you get 120hz per eye as the image flickers back and forth. If the refresh rateof the TV itself is only 120hz, this means you are only getting the 60hz experience when watching 3D. 60hz is what we are trying toget away from.There is absolutely no excuse for false advertising, higher costs for features not present. If you are looking to get a 3DTV, make sure it is absolutely 240hz or else you are just wasting your money. If you want a TV but dont plan on using the 3Dfeatures, then this unit is ok but there are cheaper and better alternatives in that case.***Updated - Old Review:The Sony Bravia40EX720 is a decent 3D HDTV.I was originally on the market for a HDTV in which to use as a computer monitor/gaming screenand after Sony revealed its 2011 lineup at CES 2011, I knew I had to get one.The first thing I can tell you is that this TV is solid. Ifelt quite satisfied with the build quality (a bit of cheap plastic on the back, but I have yet to find a LED LCD HDTV that didnt havethat feeling). Unlike the previous EX series HDTVs, the bevel on the bottom which looks grey in some pictures is actually a darkblack. This was actually a downer for me as I kind of liked the grey strip on the bottom as seen in some EX7xx pictures. I love themenu system, it is a modified version of the 2010 menu system. The 2010 line of Bravia HDTVs made use of the Playstation 3 andPSP menu system to the point where they were practically identical. The EX720, and by my guess all the 2011 models, opted out ofthe PS3/PSP menu design in favor of a more streamlined version. It grows on you and generally I find it much more visuallyappealing and easy to navigate.The remote is perhaps the best thing this tv has going for it. It has some handy buttons that workbetter than one would expect. The 3D button on the remote turns the tv into stereoscopic 3D mode, one more press and it turns it off.You can watch anything in 3D as the Bravia will emulate the 3D effect for non-3D content. Other remote buttons include a quicknetflix toggle, internet video, Qriocity as well as a very handy HOME button.The internet video works like a charm as well. Imanaged to watch youtube videos straight from the TV as well as browse online music libraries, though it was a tad sluggish (HighSpeed Cable).Plugging in a USB drive with some short films on it worked as well. The TV will recognize the USB device and thenyou can go ahead and access what you wish to watch or listen to from it. There is no demo built into the tv for video, but there is onemusic track and a few pictures automatically installed on the TV.No dead pixels. Lighting is even across the entire screen. Greatblack levels. Semi-Glossy screen (the mix between a glossy and matte). Color a bit faded, low bright levels. Certain colors seemwashed out, and even at the most vivid settings, the color is a bit lack luster. This may have to do with the back lighting beingminimal.The EX720 may not be the best HDTV Sony has to offer for 2011, but for its features and capability... I would say its acompetitor for sure.Note: The North American EX720 was assembled in Mexico and the current LCD panels are the same Samsunguses. This may or may not be a problem for some TV buyers.HDTV is NOT 240hz as advertised, but 120hz. In 3D, you will only geta 60hz experience (120hz divided by 2, 60hz per eye for stereoscopic).Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (96) 91 of 96 people found the following review helpful Review from anot-really-super-techy guy, April 12, 2011Byabe (LOS ANGELES, CA, US)-This review is from: Sony BRAVIA KDL55EX720 55-Inch 1080p 3D LED HDTV, Black (Electronics)]*UPDATE* May 19, 2011Ive had this TV for over a month now, and just wanted to provide an update:Picture: CUSTOMSETTINGS! Out-of-the-box, the picture isnt the best quality. There is some graininess, a noticeable soap opera effect and someblockiness with moving pictures. EVERY owner should calibrate the settings to their liking. Also, its very important to turn off theECO sensor -- your TV will be much, much brighter. I followed the custom settings on flatpanelshd.com, where the reviewertweaked the settings for best picture output, down to advanced settings like B-Gain and R-Gain. From there I messed around withthe other settings until I found a picture Im very happy with.Comparison: Two of my friends bought a 55-inch LG LW5600 and Ivespent a good time watching their TVs. The LG uses passive 3D so the glasses are super cheap and comfortable -- I hate to say it, butthe 3D on that TV probably looks better overall. They also brag about an 8 million to 1 contrast ratio whereas the Sony EX720 is 2million to 1. What that means is the LG has a brighter range of vivid colors. BUT after tweaking my settings, I was able to getcomparable color results AND the picture on the Sony is noticeably clearer -- you couldnt get a soap opera effect on the LG if youtried. The MotionFlow 240 actually seems to make a difference as I can see wrinkles on The Most Interesting Man in the Worldsface that I couldnt see on the LG. Plus the LG had a lot of choppiness when watching sports, it might have been the cable or theTVs 120hz processor.Still a five-star rating for a clearer picture than the LG and enhanced picture with tweaked settings. Originalreview below.*From April*Picture: Very good. Granted I was watching a 37-inch LCD that was almost six years old, so even
watching a crayon drawing on wax paper would be an upgrade. But I watched ESPN HD, Avatar HD in HBO and a bunch of otherrandom things. There was no noticeable clouding (blobs of light on the screen) at all. I was pleasantly surprised that there reallywasnt a soap opera effect on the movies and shows I watched.More Picture: Its true that this isnt a "true" 240hz TV. Its marketedas a MotionFlow 240hz, which basically means that its 120hz but has some sort of technology that Sony made up to "bring theframe rate up to 240hz." That being said, I probably wouldnt be able to notice the difference between 120 and 240hz anyway. I dowish the picture was a little bit brighter, but its super easy to adjust the settings. Also, the black levels werent as black as Id like.When watching a show with a lot of black screen, it still looks a little gray compared to the black frame lining the TV.Sound:GREAT. You know how sometimes youre watching a DVD or a TV show and the music and background noises are super loud andthe voices and dialogue are super quiet, and then you have to turn up the volume to hear the dialogue, but then quickly turn it backdown because some booming music scares the crap out of you? Not so with this TV. Apparently its got some technology thatdetects dialog and will automatically soften the background sound and amplify the voices. Plus, when you change the sound settingto "S-Force Front Surround," there really is a noticeable difference in the quality, the sound does seem to echo more under thissetting.3D: Suh-weeeeet! Ok, there are definite cross-talk issues -- which is a term I learned by reading a bunch of reviews. You willsee double images at certain points, but EVERY TV review I read suffers from this issue because its a new technology. MyDirecTV offered four 3D channels, one was a nature show channel that rotates shows about dinosaurs, ocean life, and space stuff. Ispent four hours straight watching this channel and now know a bunch of random facts about dinosaurs, ocean life and space stuff. Iinvited three people over and the four of us watched this channel for hours. There were parts of the ocean documentary whereschools of fish looked like they were a few feet out of the screen. And a freaking Brontosaurus totally peered into my living room --I wanted to pet him. Even on large landscape pans, the depth perception was amazing.Remote: Effin BRILLIANT. I dont knowwhy, but instantaneous response from the remote made me pretty damn happy. I had Time Warner Cable TV before, and it would dosome crap where youd be pressing the remote buttons and nothing would happen, and then like 15 seconds later everything youpushed would happen at once. DirecTV is better but would still lag sometimes. But this TV and its default remote are like sweetlovers that orgasm at the same time. There is no lag time and the interface screen is ridiculously simple to use and navigate -- evenfor not-really-super-techy-guys.Interface and Settings: Awesome. Navigating the settings is intuitive and simple -- it looks a lot...Read moreWas this review helpful to you? | Comments (33) 259 of 275 people found the following review helpful Sony BraviaKDL-32EX720, April 1, 2011ByNinjawithagun (Colorado Springs, CO)-This review is from: Sony BRAVIA KDL32EX720 32-Inch 1080p 3D LED HDTV, Black (Electronics)]I recently purchased the Sony Bravia EX720 from a local electronics store (and not Amazon, since I prefer to make large electronicpurchases locally in the event I need to quickly return and exchange a defective item).Overall, the TV is good, but not great.Here is a quick down and dirty list of "in my opinion (IMO)" pros and cons:Pros:- High quality LED side-lit LCD screen- True1080P 3D and Hi-definition capable, but with some limitations- Colors and contrast are vibrant, once you take the time to manuallyadjust the picture settings- Built-in 3D transmitter; no need to buy the external transmitter which saves you about $35- 3D effects arevery good overall, but best results can only be attained by watching 3D Blu Ray movies- Artifical 3D option in the 3D options worksdecently and provides an alternative to playing PC games in 3D without having to use the NVidia 3D Vision or 3DTV Play drivers;this allows you to maintain up to 60fps frame rates without have to revert to a 24hz (24fps) refresh rate- No 3D ghosting evident, butyou may need to make manual adjustments to the depth effect - I needed to do this- 4 x HDMI 1.4 ports- Internet capable right out ofthe box- Swivel and 6 degree backward tilt adjustable- Directly compatible with the Sony PS3 (shouldnt be a surprise since it is aSony TV)- TV firmware can be updated, but does require internet connectivity- Weight of TV is 25lbs - very light and easy to moveor mount on wall without worry of mounting screws tearing out of the studs in the wall!- Shortcut keys on the Remote are veryconvenient and will save you time from having to dig down into the sub-menus everytime just to make adjustments to certainfunctionsCons:- NOT a 240hz 3D TV; Sony.com website lists the specifications for this model as "120hz" refresh rate (AMAZONNEEDS TO FIX THE LISTED DESCRIPTION FOR THIS TV NOW!)- Had to contact Sony customer support directly to verifywhich Sony 3D glasses model is compatible with the KDL-32EX720; their website did not provide this information; confirmed with
the tech rep that the TDGBR100/B version is compatible with the KDL-32EX720; important to note the "B"Think of it as the "B" represents "Bravia" :)- 3D viewing @ 1080P limited to only 24hz and 30hz??24hz = 24fps & 30hz = 30fpsThats not a problem for watching 3D Blu Ray movies (or watching converted 2D movies into 3D), but is not acceptable if you wantto play computer games on this TV; part of the reason why I bought it- Takes a few hours to manually adjust the picture just the wayyou want it; you will need to go into the "Advanced Settings" to change things like White Balance, Black Level correction, Edgeenhancement, etc.- Priced a bit high for not having 3D glasses included or a 240hz refresh rate; WARNING! The glasses cost $150separately O.o- Power cord is hard-wired into the TV; would have preferred a universal power cord solution so that it could bereplaced easily should it get damaged- Remote control is a bit clunky and large and does not provide universal remote functionalityas it only allows for control of the TV; unlike other remotes that allow you to conrol several devices - a universal remote functionwould have been nice for me because I could have used the remote to control both the TV and my Sony PS3; not sure why Sonywould not allow for this other than to make more money from their customers...no way!lolBOTTOMLINE:Depending on your intentions of what the primary use of this TV is/are will ultimately determine your finaldecision to buy it or not.If you plan to watch regular and 3D Blu Ray movies and like the convenience of the integrated internet functionality, then this TV isa good choice, albeit a bit expensive when considering you have to pay $150 more for the 3D glasses.The picture quality when watching Blu Ray movies is excellent and there are lots of options to configure the picture appearanceaccording to your specific tastes/preferences.Think of it as adjusting the drivers seat on a brand new car that you are thinking of buying.You really dont know exactly the right settings until you have had it for a while, but when you do figure it out, the ride was wellworth the wait.I would NOT recommend you buy this TV if you plan to do serious 3D computer gaming on it.I highly recommend you wait for the new 27" and larger "true" 120hz 3D monitors coming out later this year.Because of the limitations of the frame rates when using 3D mode on this TV, Ive decided to keep my Alienware OptX AW2310 3Dcomputer monitor so that I can get the best 3D experience while PC gaming.To those who are a bit more serious about therehardware and do not want to compromise, I would highly recommend you wait to buy the 240hz or 480hz version of this TV (notyet...Read moreWas this review helpful to you? | Comments (21)
