Advice needed for TV 3D passive


Standard Member

what is the best choice for those specs
- TV 3D passive (no active)
- 3m watching distance
- mix full HD from bluray and sat TV & divx
- good picture quality 2D & 3D
- good response time (some gaming)
- don't need internet connectivity or media player

I look for LG 42LW4500. is it a good choice ?
any other idea ?

To start with if sitting 3m away and wanting 3D Id be looking at 50" not 42". I sit about 2.4m away from my 46" and 3Ds ok, any further Id be going 50"+. Whats the set for mainly? guessing gaming and 3D, sport? films? SD?.
Why no to active? rules out some great sets, in fact the best sets IMO for 2D and lowest lag sets too.

thanks for quick reply
I thinked 42 inch because I don't have so much place in my studio for big screen and I still have a lot of divx.
I try several 3D activ and I see little difference with 2D. So I prefer passiv.
content : mostly HD + SD movies (from satellite, mediaplayer), no sport. 3D
no gaming now but I plan to buy a ps3
