Conclusion: The folks in the active 3D camp are not going to like this, but LG has figured out how to make a passive 3D HDTV that will sell the technology better than anything the competition has come up with for under $2,500. The inclusion of four pairs of glasses is a smart move and likely to influence potential customers. If LG can figure out how to make a 70-inch version of this set for under $4,000, I will gladly drink the entire pitcher of Kool-Aid. Highly recommended.
Pros: Excellent picture quality with both 2D and 3D content, Plethora of connections, LG's Smart TV interface is easy to use, Worked well with numerous Blu-ray 3D players from 4 different manufacturers, Solid Design, Cheap glasses (and 4 pairs in the box) make 3D a much more social experience, Viewer opinions make a compelling argument for passive 3D
Cons: Relatively expensive, Some lighting uniformity issues, Magic Motion remote is useless, LG Apps (games) are not terrribly interesting, No Pandora, Limited vertical viewing range in 3D mode, Detail in 3D mode suffers compared to active 3D sets
