Expert review by: John Archer (

LG 55LW980T


LG makes passive 3D tech a genuine high-end proposition with its new 55in ‘Nano' TV.

Superb 2D and 3D pictures ; Sumptuous design ; Huge multimedia support

Evidence of jaggedness over small objects and bright edges ; very limited vertical 3D viewing angle ; Input lag a potential problem for gamers

In working hard to make the 55LW980T its best 2D TV to date, LG has also managed to serve up the most persuasive argument for passive 3D yet. So much so that we can fully imagine the set appealing to serious video enthusiasts as well as ‘casual' users.

effect of 3D depth control


I watched a National Geographic program and it looked like it was raining on my carpet. This TV also has the ability to turn 2D to 3D which is great. You can also vary the 3D experience using the depth control, I have kept it just over half way, and...

Looks Impressive


If you're looking for a 3D television that's not so hard on your eyes, this is the one to get. I tried my friend's active 3D TV and my eyes hurt every time. 2D to 3D conversion is great especially when you're gaming. I tried it on my xbox and it was...
