10 parimat 3D televiisorit maailmas. arvates  reastuvad uued 3D telerid alljärgnevalt.

If you’re looking for the best 3D TV, you’ve come to the right place.

We’ve got the ten best 3D TVs on the planet – both LCDs and plasma – and put them all in once place for your decision-making pleasure.

The jury’s out on which TV tech is best for 3D, but we can already summarise the differences.

There’s a feeling that for sheer 3D effects – especially in terms of depth and leap effects – the bright-and-breezy LCD sets from Samsung are the most effective. The downside is that LCD TVs do seem to be affected by ‘crosstalk’ – when each eye sees part of the image intended only for the other eye.

Sony and LG’s 3D TVs, meanwhile, are much cleaner, though not quite as impressive when it comes to the sheer impact of their 3D effects.

Plasma, meanwhile – only from Panasonic, so far – appears to be clean and free from crosstalk, but oh so dark. The glasses get rid of a huge amount of brightness to leave a rather dingy image, but arguably the most impressive and comfortable overall image.

Crosstalk remains a real and tiring barrier to enjoying 3D, especially over extended viewing periods. Plus, of course, its effect runs counter to the clarity of the HD Blu-ray images that ‘alternate frame’ 3D was designed to keep – so choose carefully and try before you buy.

That’s right, folks, you’re being experimented on. That’s for sure, and we expect the second generation of 3DTVs to be a good deal less ‘crosstalky’.

For now, here are the 10 best 3D TVs in order of awesomeness!

10. LG 47LD950

What a spectacle, but LG’s 3DTV reaches only for the Sky

The 47-inch 47LD950 boldly eschews the latest active shutter tech and sticks with a passive, offset approach that’s best suited to Sky’s new 3D service.

Using enthrallingly affordable 3D glasses that cost pennies rather than hundred of pounds, this unique 3D TV rams home that particular message by including a stunning four pairs in the box.

There is a catch. LG’s approach of effectively having two images slightly offset from each other on the screen at the same time – rather than two Full HD images shown concurrently – does mean a less detailed picture.

As well as comfy glasses, the Sky 3D picture looks impressively natural and more vibrant than ‘posh’ 3D Blu-ray and features no 3D crosstalk. Brilliant! Or is it?

The price is a less-than-convincing 3D effect that divorces the foreground from the background, and 3D Blu-ray pictures don’t look quite as detailed as they do on active 3D TVs, though it puts in a decent 2D performance.

9. Samsung 40C7000

Slim pickings for 3D on this Edge LED set

The first 3D set to reach our test bench back in May, Samsung’s 40C7000 is nothing if not a head-turner. It’s a sliver of a thing at just 27mm thick thanks to its Edge LED backlighting and some cutting-edge production techniques.

Using the sole pair of £100 glasses included with this TV, 3D enjoys some subtle depth and distance effects, but the screen size as a whole proves to be too small; the 3D effects become more impressive the nearer you sit to the screen, but 40 inches is not enough for the 3D action to become truly immersive.

Meanwhile, on-the-fly 2D-3D conversion proves gimmicky at best, but works better with a regular Blu-ray disc than from TV. Elsewhere in Samsung’s 7 Series you’ll find the 46-inch 40C7000 and 55-inch 40C7000 LED TVs, and the 50-inch PS50C7000 and 63-inch PS63C7000 plasmas.

8. Samsung LE46C750

Budget 3D for the masses?

The LE46C750 was the first serious attempt to make 3D available to the less well heeled, though now it’s joined by Sony’s HX803 Series. This 46-inch LCD model uses standard CCFL lighting and sells for around the same price as a decent flat TV – and a wedge less than any other 3DTV.

With Sky’s 3D channel, the performance is strikingly bright and colourful and the active shutter glasses don’t wipe out nearly as much brightness as some rival 3D platforms – though motion doesn’t look quite as clean and sharp as with Samsung’s 9 Series screens.

On both Sky and 3D Blu-ray there’s clear evidence of that arch nemesis of 3D LCD TVs, crosstalk noise – it’s subtly visible almost all the time, causing the image to regularly look a little unfocused and shimmery.

At least there’s a an effective 2D-to-3D conversion feature, which does add a genuine sense of 3D space and depth, though once again, it’s blighted by crosstalk.

7. Philips Cinema 21:9 Platinum

Super-wide 3D for the super-rich

The Philips Cinema 21:9 Platinum Series is Philips’ first 3D TV, and it uses the same active-shutter 3D tech as the others tested here.

During our short preview, the 3D performance of this 58-inch Full LED-backlight set was excellent. Watching in the 21:9 aspect ratio is a lot more comfortable on the eyes than traditional 16:9 sets – the added screen space really did add to the sense of depth.

However, while Philips says it has gone to great length to eliminate 3D’s biggest weakness – crosstalk (where the two images bleed into each other) – we found this to be a significant issue.

Crosstalk is more pronounced than on Panasonic VT20 plasmas, though this is a breath-taking 2D and 3D TV.

6. LG 55LX9900

LG’s most ambitious TV to date?

Nothing the Korean giant has done before quite prepares us for the amount of innovation and extravagance it’s thrown at the 55LX9900, a 55-inch TV so jam-packed with technology – including active 3D playback — that it’s likely to have its rivals scurrying for cover.

Somehow combining a 31mm depth with direct LED backlighting, the 55LX9900’s 2D performance is spotless.

3D images look impressively detailed and crisp, even in dark image areas, with action sequences demonstrating expert fluidity and clarity. There’s a catch; crosstalk. Parts of the picture can appear with ghostly echoes of themselves to the left and right of their ‘real’ position.

The sense of depth isn’t as profound as it is on Samsung and Panasonic 3D TVs, either, though arguably that makes particularly deep 3D content easier on the eye. A 47-inch 47LX9900 is also available.

5. Samsung UE55C9000

A big 3D reputation – and an even bigger price

It’s also available as the 40-inch UE40C9000 and 46-inch UE46C9000, but we’re tempted to say that the 55 inches of screen within Samsung’s flagship 9 Series LED-backlit LCD TV is the bare minimum you should be looking for if you’re after top-draw 3D.

Designed with money-no-object flair and just 33.9mm deep, this LED-backlit LCD screen hosts genuine depth and retains colour vibrancy.

Crosstalk is evident, but it’s minimised – to a point – by Dual Black Insertion that ups the 60Hz per eye refresh rate to 240Hz. Unfortunately only one pair of 3D glasses are included, though they keep the on-screen 3D action looking bright and vibrant.

2D is lush, with a host of other features that go a little of the way to justifying its enormous price tag – including Internet@, a Freeview HD tuner, extensive media playback and a slinky (though rather stuttering) ‘Touch Control’ remote.

But with significant crosstalk issues and a price that simply seems ludicrous when compared to the 3D competition, the UE55C9000 is style over substance.

4. Sony KDL-40HX803

Cheap and cheerful with crosstalk suppressed

Sony may be making a belated splash with 3D, but it looks committed; from three full TV ranges this HX800 Series screen is its mainstream proposition.

Also available as a 46-incher (KDL-46HX803), these 74mm-deep Edge LED TVs are 3D-ready – you’ll have to add the 3D gubbins (an emitter plus a pair of glasses) for £150.

A sense of depth and brightness are admirable, as is Sony’s attempt to disguise the inevitable crosstalk issue – especially during fast-moving 3D footage.

‘3D upconversion’ is less impressive, with fizzy and unrefined images not a patch on Samsung’s 2D-to-3D efforts, though at this low price – even with the 3D gubbins added on – the KDL-40HX803’s 3D Blu-ray performance is great value.

3. Sony KDL-52HX903

Relatively clean 3D, but it’s an optional extra only

Deeper than sets in Sony’s LX903 series, this ‘Cinematic’ HX903 uses Direct LED backlighting. The other big news about the 52-inch 52HX903 is that it is 3D capable, although you’ll need to add an optional 3D kit containing a transmitter (£50) and as many active shutter glasses as you want (£99 each).

If you want 3D capabilities built in, you’ll have to buy Sony’s edge-lit LX903 models instead. The same applies to the 46-inch KDL-46HX903.

Pictures suffer from crosstalk, leaving images looking unfocused, though less of it than on the 3D sets from Samsung and LG. Indeed, there’s sufficiently less of it to leave the 52HX903’s 3D pictures looking mostly rather enjoyable. Especially since they remain impressively bright and colourful even with the (unusually comfortable and light-shielding) 3D glasses on.

Sony’s 2D to 3D conversion system is rather less aggressive than Samsung’s, with its 3D effect really being very limited in depth – but clean.

2. Sony KDL-60LX903

3D flagship in ‘Signature’ style

It may be out-muscled in size by Panasonic’s 65-inch plasma, but Sony’s flagship ‘Signature’ KDL-60LX903 LED-backlit LCD TV is bigger than anything Sony has produced for yonks.

Slim at 64mm and sporting the brand’s minimalistic Monolith design, this 60 incher holds its size well, but it’s heavy.

Its 3D pictures are equally solid, offering a captivating experience, though crosstalk is there if you look for it. Happily, that’s not a major issue and the KDL-60LX903’s sheer size helps earn it some 3D stripes. Meanwhile, 2D to 3D conversion proves nothing more than a novelty. Shame.

This screen – and its identical 40-inch sibling, the KDL-40LX903 – ships with two pairs of the brand’s TDG-BR100 3D glasses, which are reasonably comfortable and add to the feeling that the KDL-60LX903 is a bit of a bargain. That impression is sealed by its 2D performance, though you’d best stick to Freeview HD and Blu-ray.

1. Panasonic TX-P65VT20B

The bigger the better? You betcha!

It follows that if a 3D screen is big enough to fill your field of vision, it’s more likely to deliver an immersive stereoscopic experience. And that’s true of the biggest – and best – 3DTV so far, though the 65-inch TX-65VT20 (and its little sister, the 50-inch TX-P50VT20) isn’t as glamorous as we’d like in spite of its bronze finish.

The inclusion of two pairs of glasses is generous, though they’re uncomfortable and let an annoying amount of light in. So it’s lights-off time for 3D, not least because the only plasma 3D Series of TVs so far lose considerable brightness in 3D mode when compared to its LCD rivals.

Just as well, then, that the TX-P65VT20 has as immense black level response and far less obvious crosstalk issues than you’ll find on any active LCD 3D TV. It’s not immune to the tell-tale double ghosting of objects in the mid-to-far distance, but the overall image is crisp and convincing.

There may be no 2D-to-3D conversion circuitry and there is room for improvement, but this enormous Panasonic plasma arguably serves up the best 3D TV pictures currently available.
