3D TVs Really Do Have Better Picture Quality
Telegram.com wondered why people buy 3D TVs when there’s hardly any programming for them. But a reader told us they have better pictures.
We looked into that and discovered that it’s true for monster-sized TVs — 46 inches and above. Why is that? The image demands of 3D are much greater and it takes more powerful circuitry to handle the incoming signal, so the TV has to be better. Consumer Reports seems to agree, and they consistently rate monster-sized 3D TVs at the top.
Of course, the downside of actually using the 3D feature is having to wear 3D glasses, or 3D glasses on top of regular glasses. Another problem is the viewing angle: 3D can disappear if you’re not sitting in the right spot. But Hewlett-Packard Labs recently reported a breakthrough on both fronts. They have a prototype, but it’s not out yet. Stay tuned, as they say; someday everything will seem to pop out right into your living room.
