wait for the Panasonic VT25 series. The 50" and 54" sets should be out this month. The 58" and 65" in summer. Plasma, especially the Panasonic, have awesome black levels, which means richer colors (less washed out) and better shadow detail. The Samsung leds are brighter though. For 3d, plasma has no ghosting unlike the led technology.

Anyone knows if burn-in is an issue with those plasmas? I know someone who's looking into a 3dtv and is looking into LED but I told him about the black level and ghosting issues.

Pretty much there is no such thing as burn in in Plasma's these days. They all generally shift the image ever so slightly. It moves the image constantly, getting rid of any burn in that might have occured.

TC-P50VT25 - $2600 - out now.
TC-P54VT25 - $3000 - out now.
TC-P58VT25 - $3400 - June.
TC-P65VT25 - $4300 - June.

Comes with 1 pair of glasses. Each additional pair $150. Includes coupons to get free copies of BR 3d versions of "Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs" and "Coraline" if you buy any VT25 set before July 10th.

PS3 3d game firmware update next month. Initial supported 3d games: Wipeout HD, Motorstorm Pacific Rift, PAIN, and Super Stardust HD and you won't need to buy a Sony Bravia 3d tv. Any 1.4 HDMI spec 3dtv will work, like the Panasonic.

Great review of the Panasonic V20/V25 series. These look to be the best sets for 2d and 3d.

The biggest problem is there is not a standard for 3D yet. Each manufacturer does it their own way, although they will all work with the 3D BR discs.

Everyone is going active shutter, which means the glasses need to sync with the TV, so you MUST buy the glasses built for your specific TV model (verify verify verify).

I think it is just a fad, which will fade out once people start complaining of headaches, etc. I would wait, at least, until there is a standard set for all manufacturers. This will ensure the movies will be optimized for that standard and you will get the best possible 3D picture.

Also, as a note, you will be required to have HDMI 1.4 in order to do full HD 3D. HDMI 1.3 (what most people have) will only do 3D in 1080i (1.4 can do 1080p). This means all the components in the path need to be 1.4 to get all the goodness. Naturally, this also includes HDMI cabling.

Do the 3d TV's let people watch 2 different channels at the same time?

It depend on brand and models, Nvidia 3DTV Play software current in testing for all 3DTVs didnt worked on all 3DTVs. As of 13 April Nvidia 3DTV Play worked with 4 3DTVs:

Panasonic TC-P50VT20

As of now glasses go with the TV but I am sure a company like Logitech will make universal ones (it is just IR after all). My hope is they will have Blue Tooth for future revs. HDMI 1.3 cables do HDMI 1.4. Nvidia GPUS will be upgraded to work via driver update. Please don't tell me I am wrong because I have hooked up the systems with HDMI 1.3 cables . . . .DVI-D to HDMI. Again, this was my job for about a couple months . . .All I did was demonstrate this to thousands of people across the country. People thought home video was a fad.
I think the active shutter approach is a fad. I think it will be superseded by either passive polarized lenses or no glasses at all. The current active shutters are just retarded. They're big and bulky, need batteries, and give many people headaches for a number of reasons, not to mention they cost about as much as a set of prescription glasses.
