3dtvexample2.jpgNo, this isn't the I-told-ya-so column ... yet. Events have moved much faster than I predicted when I wrote a column on this topic about a year ago, but it seems we are headed for the same forecasted result.  In that column I pointed to lack of standards, lack of content, the glasses nuisance and the problematic usage model in the home as probable deterrents to wide (or any) adoption of 3D in your living room. Press releases received over the past few months from various independent surveys have "leaked" reports of disappointing sales from even the most conservative manufacturer's estimates.

SONY KDL55NX810 Edge Lit LED LCD Product Review E-mail
In Depth HDTV Reviews
Wednesday, 22 December 2010

sonykdl-55nx810.jpgPros: Good brightness and contrast ratio. Very accurate color gamut and grayscale tracking. Good feature set. 3D capable.

Cons: Somewhat limited calibration setup features. Lacks selectable color spaces, and a Color Management System (CMS) feature for fine tuning color space. The remote lacks backlighting.

To Buy or Not to Buy? Very good overall performance for an edge lit LED LCD. At a list price of $2,900, this panel represents a reasonably good value. Highly recommended for an edge lit LED LCD.

PANASONIC TC-P42GT25 3D PLASMA In Depth Product Review E-mail
In Depth HDTV Reviews
Saturday, 11 December 2010

panasonic tc-p42gt25.jpgPros:  Very good value for the money at a list price of $1,699. Very good black levels, and accurate color gamut (in the THX picture mode) that adheres to the ITU-709 specifications for HDTV. The panel has good off axis viewing when compared to LCD panels, and good 3D picture quality.


Cons: The panel begins to clip white and color at very low contrast levels yielding a very low 17 fTLs. of peak light output with no clipping, and with whites extending out beyond the 235 range for white in a video signal. Grayscale and gamma tracking is inconsistent and choppy by comparison to other flat panels on the market both plasma and LCD.


To Buy or not to Buy? Considering the TC-P42GT25 is available for under $1,500 on the Internet, it is a relatively good value for the money. It is a very credible performer with good overall color accuracy. One major flaw: It clips the video signal at very low contrast levels making its light output somewhat limited.
