Ever since James Cameron released the film Avatar in 2009, 3D technology has become the new must-have feature for televisions.With so many models of 3D televisions, it is hard to know where to begin searching. One way to begin is to select the size of screen that is right for the room that houses the television. Sizes can range between the large-scale 92-inch screens right down to 27-inch screens.
3D televisions are available in plasma, LED/LCD, and rear projection. All standard 3D televisions require the viewer to wear special 3D glasses, but not all televisions come with the glasses that a viewer needs. Before buying a 3D television, users need some knowledge to find the right television due to the range of different technologies available.
1 Mitsubishi WD-92840 92

This rear projection television is too big to mount on the wall, but users often mount it on a stand. Users must have a great deal of space to keep a television this large and to keep it well-ventilated. At 194 lbs, this television needs a permanent place and is not a television to move around.

Buyers need to find a 3D television that has enough ports, the right kind of screen, and a high enough resolution. Each brand and model offers slightly different combinations, so it is important to get a good idea of what is available before committing to a purchase.
