3D TV’s are here… welcome to the 21st century. They are the ultimate viewing experience and you can now buy a 3D TV online.

What can be easier than sitting in the comfort of your own home, choosing your favourite TV and having it delivered to your doorstep in a matter of days!

So, get yourself ready to enter the 21st century with the latest in innovation. However, before you buy a 3D TV online, there are a few things you need to know.

How 3D TV’s Work

Your 3D TV will display both 2D and 3D programs. But, to display 3D programs you will need to have a source for the 3D programs. For example, you will need a source that will play 3D material, something like a Playstation 3, a blue ray player or a cable box with a subscription to a 3D channel. Some TV’s have a 2D to 3D conversion too.

In addition to this, you will need 3D content to play, whether it is 3D movies, games or programs on a 3D cable or satellite channel.

3D Glasses

For the time being most 3D TV’s need glasses for viewing. Some use polarised passive glasses and others use powered “active shutter” glasses.

You will need one pair per viewer and most TV’s come with 2 pairs included in your purchase. If you get an additional pair, you will need to make sure they are compatible with your TV.

Universal glasses are also available that will work with all 3D TV’s.

Now that we’ve covered the basics let’s get the dirty on the top 5 3D TV’s on the market today.

1. The Samsung UN55D8000 55-Inch 1080p 240Hz 3D LED HDTV

This baby is the flagship of 3D TV’s. The thin bezel (frame) makes it look like you’re looking through a window or looking at a painting. This feature makes the 3D picture jump out at you from the 55 inch screen. It comes with 2 pairs of lightweight active 3D glasses that will fit over prescription glasses.

With a large collection of apps specifically designed for your TV you will be able to smoothly integrate your online and offline TV experience.

This 3D TV is definitely the best of the best.

2. The LG Infinia 47LW5600 47-Inch Cinema 3D 1080p 120 Hz LED HDTV with Smart TV (Included: Four Pairs of 3D Glasses) by LG

Gamers, this is the 3D TV for you. With very little input lag this makes for absolutely smooth gaming. The screen quality is excellent and the picture is sharp and clear on this ultra thin panel TV. This TV does an excellent job of converting 2D into 3D as well. This works well especially with Blu Ray movies but also enhances your gaming experience.

3. The VIZIO E3D420VX 42 Inch Class Theater 3D LCD HDTV with VIZIO Internet Apps by Vizio

With amazing 3D effects, this TV is great for PS3 and Xbox 360 HD games as well as 3D games and 3D movies. With seamless internet integration it has internet apps available for flickr, Facebook, NEtflix, VUDU, Amazon video on demand, Blockbuster and lots of news services. With a QWERTY keyboard on the small and easy to use remote it makes using the applications a breeze.

This is a great 3D TV that is great value for money and that will exceed all your expectations.

4. The Samsung LN46C750 46-Inch 1080p 3D LCD HDTV (Black)

This excellent yet affordable 3D TV not only gives you all the internet applications that you will ever need, it also allows for greater control over color, sharpness and even over the black level of the TV. Great for watching 3D as well as 2D content, this is a great overall TV experience.

This TV does not come with 3D glasses so you will have to order a separate pair, but it is such great value for money that you won’t really mind paying a little extra for a couple of pairs of 3D glasses.

5. The LG Infinia 55LW5600 55-Inch Cinema 3D 1080p 120 Hz LED HDTV with Smart TV (Included: Four Pairs of 3D Glasses) by LG

The 3D picture is awesome and it will totally blow you away. The 2D picture is even more superior than most 2D TV’s out there too. Even better, the price on Amazon is more competitive than most other competitors out there. The 2D to 3D conversion is incredible and definitely enhances your viewing. To top that off, the TV comes with 4 pairs of 3D glasses, enough for a small tribe. Talk about foresight.
