With all the advancements in computers and technology these days, it was only a matter of time before 3D TV came out on to the market. Besides being a great medium to watch movies at home in a 3D cinema atmosphere, you can use your 3D TV for gaming as well. We’ve all gotten really excited with new game releases for our PS4s and Xboxes but now, you can get even more hyped up if you got to play those same games in 3D.
The Advantages of 3D TV Gaming
The first time you play a game on a 3D TV, you will feel the thrill of the whole thing. We’re talking about objects flying at you out of nowhere, amazing scenes in the background come to life, and the way you punch out your opponent will never be the same again!
The sense of depth in the games that you play is at a whole different level and if you try out games like Akrham City, Motorsport Apocalypse, Resistance 3, and other such games at a friend’s house in 3D, you will never be able to go back to 2D again!
The main thing you should remember is that not any 3D TV will be ideal. If you’re an avid gamer, you really should invest in a good one. To make things easy for you, we’ve tried and tested three major 3D TV brands and we have the details for you right here.
The Samsung UN65H7150 65-Inch 3D Smart LED TV is a really high contender in both the 3D TV industry and as far as gaming is concerned because of its picture quality and great features. The 240Hz panel is ideal for those very fast motions and as well as for smoothing out the panning. Not to mention that the TV itself actually looks great and sleek as most Samsung products do. One of the other main features of this TV is the fact that it also comes with split screen option which makes it a great option for people into gaming.
Samsung knows that serious gamers will go out and purchase a 3D TV for their favorite pastime and so they’ve thought of everything. From excellent color contract to great LED edge lighting for dynamic images, this TV even includes a Game Mode that will make any gamer happy. It also connects perfectly well to the internet through WiFi.
On the downside, the Samsung UN65H7150 doesn’t have the best audio and volume but you can boost that with some woofers.
Next we looked at the Sony KDL55W800B 55-Inch 3D Smart LED TV. Sony promised a picture that looks so life-like and Sony did not disappoint with this 3D TV. All images showed very crisp detail and this product ranks very high on great color and detail in viewing.
For gamers, the Sony KDL55W800B allows for easy and quick access to Playstation games streamed straight to your 3D TV thanks to its quick access to downloadable apps. With a 1080Hz resolution, it is similar to the Samsung but it beats the Samsung thanks to angle 2D and 3D viewing. It also scores very highly on exact motion clarity thanks to its MotionFLow XR 480 technology.
On the negative side, this Sony TV takes a little bit of time to start up and is also a little slow when you want to switch between apps and TV. Also, Sony is constantly sending updates for its 3D TV and this may be a little annoying to some people.
LG keeps telling us that “Life’s Good” and they sure are making life good for gamers with their new LG 60LA7400 smart TV. This very sleek and futuristic looking TV comes with what LG calls a “Magical Remote” and challenges you to throw out all of your remote controllers and use theirs because it can control everything!
This TV promises amazing viewer and gaming experience thanks to its “no motion blur” TruMotion 240Hz technology. This TV also comes with four free lightweight and battery free glasses. While this may seem generous, it also means that gamers no longer need a split screen to take part in two-player games. Two players can now play against each other and watch it all happening on the screen in front of them. Also WIFi enabled, you can access all sorts of content online and using only the Magic Remote as well.
On the downside, you have to do a lot of work to get this TV’s settings to where you want them to be. For those of you who like so many options, maybe it’s not such a bad thing after all to be given the choice on sound and picture and also many other things.
