If your answer to these questions is a yes, then you have definitely come to the right place.

With more and more interest in 3D TVs and the technology that produces the 3D effect the following is a consumer’s guide which looks at the two front runners in this category – the Panasonic TC-P50VT20 and the Samsung UN55C7000. Both of these 3D TVs are currently on the market and the following is a comparison of the various features available on the two models.
The Panasonic and the Samsung TVs both use 3D technology that requires the viewer to wear a pair of 3D glasses. These glasses make it possible to see the 3D effect as they contain LCD shutters which turn on and off at an impressive speed of 60 times a second. Both sets of glasses are bulky and take some getting used to and they are quite expensive at more than $100 a pair. The Panasonic glasses are slightly better than the Samsung as they are able to be adjusted to sit properly on your face. The Samsung glasses have no adjustments which can be a problem for children with smaller faces.
When it comes to comparing the quality of the 3D picture for both of these 3DTVs they are very similar and both produce quite a good 3D effect. Both of the 3DTVs had a great depth feel on still images however the 3D effect was limited when viewing fast moving action which appeared a little blurry. The Samsung model did display some ghosting around the image which was slightly distracting as did the Panasonic however the ghosting for this model was much less.
The Panasonic and the Samsung 3D TVs are not cheap, with price tags at the high end of the scale. Both of these 3D TVs also require the purchase of other accessories such as the 3D glasses and also a Blu-ray player or Play station with inbuilt Blu-ray player which can be quite expensive. The Panasonic TV comes with one pair of 3D glasses where as the Samsung doesn’t come with any and at $150 a pair it can be quite expensive when buying enough 3D glasses for the whole family. The other accessories such as the Blu-ray player are also quite expensive to buy and currently there is not a large amount of content available which is in 3D.
While there is very little to separate these two 3D TVs, the Panasonic wins just as the 3D picture is slightly better and you also receive a pair of 3D glasses with the TV.
