Sony KDL46EX723BU 46" LED BACKLIT 3D TV for 799.99
Active 3D tech.
No glasses included
Still seems to be a good price.

I am looking to buy this TV. I am looking for some info
1. Should I go for Active or Passive 3D tech.
2. How painful it is to keep the glasses charged.
3. Can I use any other make glasses or would I have to buy Sony always
4. How good are the glasses generally for build quality as these would be handled by kids.. Or should I just buy passive 3D TV to be on the safer side.

    If you want a 3D TV dont buy this one!

    To answer your questions:

    1. Passive 3d doesnt give you headaches and the glasses are like £1.
    2. Active glasses are battery powered or can be charged through USB port.
    3. No, only Sony with Sony TV.
    4. Build quality are good, but also are very expensive! If your kids break them, you could be looking at £50 a set to replace them.

    Any specific reason... I was also looking at LG 3d passive tech... if there is compelling reason for not to buy this one then I will go for the LG...

    This TV suffers from very bad Crosstalk in 3d. I looked at this TV a couple months ago, when i was after a new TV. I decided on the Samsung UE40D7000, as it suited my needs i.e: good 2d and 3d performance, no crosstalk, very little input lag for gaming.

    If you want a 3D TV, i recommend the LG 42LW650T. I would of gone for it myself, but needed a gaming TV with little input lag. Glasses dont need charging and cost a couple quid.

    LG 47LW650T

    Shame about the retailer, but are there any codes for Currys etc around to bring the price down? Not sure on quidco etc.

    Plus the Sony comes with no glasses at all. In my experience passive is much better than active for family use, as it's sods law that there will be a pair that need charging when you all want to watch a film...

    Not to mention the cost of replacement glasses.

    Sony are aware of the cross-talk issue and will send out polarizing filters to anyone that needs them. With the filters fitted, the active 3D effect blows away any passive system I've seen.

    From the Sony Customer Service website - "[Obtain Anti Distortion Filters] Please contact our Customer Information Centre on 08448466555 for more information and quote this knowledge base article 1155 when talking to an agent."
