Not the exact model, hence my surprise when they agreed to match. The 55W809C is exclusive to Currys. JL sell the 55W805C which has slightly lower motionflow at 800Hz compared to 1000Hz. One may also have a slightly differently coloured bezel. But essentially they are the same TV.

is this 4k or uhd? or suhd???

Excelvan 3D glasses off amazon work for me on 50W805C - excellent value as 2 pairs for 60% of cost of one pair of Sony glasses! I believe some cheaper Samsung glasses also work

Thanks for that!

Guys, if this TV uses Active Shutter 3D, leave well alone. For 3D without Crosstalk, (Ghosting,) you'll need a passive 4k TV, (which delivers 1080p for each eye.)

This is way overpriced for a Sony.

I don't get any crosstalk on my active 3D tv, perhaps you had a cheap model TV?

Furthermore, which 1080p TV offers passive 3D @ 1080p per eye?......none

All passive 4K TV's deliver FHD 1080p per eye. This means the upper LG's and maybe even the top of the range Sony.

I've tested 20 or so Active shutter LCDs/LEDs over my time at many price ranges, and I've yet to see a TV that doesn't show Crosstalk. On LCD/LED, the pixels are not able to turn on and off fast enough which means the Left eye catches a little of what the right eye is only supposed to see and vice versa. Due to faster response times of Plasma's they show less Crosstalk.

The passive TV's on the other hand don't rely on pixels turning off and on very quickly and there glasses being in sync. That's why they show even less crosstalk.

Just be warned that once you see crosstalk you will always start noticing it!
