Samsung, LG and Vizio are absolutely dominating the top ten list on Amazon for best-selling 3D TVs as of the end of August. Each manufacturer claimed 3 models in the top ten.
3 of the top 10 best-selling 3D TVs on Amazon were Samsung models, including the top-selling product overall.
#1 – Samsung UN55D8000 55-Inch 1080p 240Hz 3D LED HDTV)

Overall of the 50 best-selling TVs on Amazon at the end of August, 12 of those models with 3D televisions. We will be keeping a close eye on this figure to monitor the growth of 3D TV against non-3D TV models over time.
LG models represented 3 of the top 5 best-selling models at the end of August, which probably makes them the winner in the overall field, although just a hair ahead of Samsung and a length ahead of Vizio.
#2 – LG Infinia 47LW6500 47-Inch Cinema 3D 1080p 240 Hz LED HDTV with Smart TV
#4 – LG Infinia 47LW5600 47-Inch Cinema 3D 1080p 120 Hz LED HDTV with Smart TV

Vizio had 3 of the top 10 best-selling 3D TVs at the end of August on Amazon, and continues to own the “value” positioning in the 3D television wars.
#3 – VIZIO XVT3D474SV 47-Inch Full HD 3D Full Array TruLED with Smart Dimming LCD HDTV 480 Hz SPS
#6 – VIZIO E3D420VX 42 Inch Class Theater 3D LCD HDTV
#10 – VIZIO XVT553SV 55-Inch Class Full Array TruLED with Smart Dimming LCD HDTV 240 Hz SPS
In the month on August, the third most popular 3D TV sold on Amazon, and the 15th most popular television overall, was the VIZIO XVT3D474SV 47 Inch Full HD 3D TV. This is Vizio’s most popular 3D television, and rocks the Full Array TruLED with Smart Dimming LCD screen with 480 Hz SPS, and comes with the suite of VIZIO Internet Apps. It’s currently being offered for $950, substantially less than its $1,450 list price. This is Vizio‘s top-selling 3D TV model.
Vizio’s top selling 3D TV on Amazon in the month of August, the VIZIO E3D420VX 42 Inch Class Theater 3D TV, was the #6 best-selling 3D TV overall on Amazon, and its most popular 42″ 3D TV sold. It offers a 42 Inch Class Theater 3D LCD HDTV with the VIZIO suite of Internet Apps. This is also the most affordable 3D TV to clock into the best-selling list, as it is currently offered on Amazon at just $648, quite a bit less than the other most popular 3D TVs.
Rounding out the top ten best-selling 3D TVs on Amazon at the end of August is the VIZIO XVT3D554SV 55 Inch 3D LED HDTV. This is Vizio‘s 3rd model in the top ten best-sellers group and features a 55″ 1080p 480Hz 3D LED HDTV with Full Array TruLED, Smart Dimming and VIZIO Internet Apps, and retails at $1,550. This is Vizio’s lead 55 inch 3D TV.
PCMagazine looked at two of Vizio’s popular 3D TV models, specifically the XVT3D650SV and the larger XVT3D650SV model. The smaller 474SV (47″) is an LED backlist HD 3D TV that is offered at $1,699 at most retailers. The substantially larger 650SV (65″) is also an LED backlit HD 3D TV that comes with the rather hefty price tag of $3,699. The article also notes that if you are interested in the bigger screen, you should consider its Editor’s Choice Samsung UN55C8000 which is a better product and better value priced at $2,400.
Consumer Reports has been testing 3D televisions and technology as new items come to the market including the new Vizio lightweight viewing glasses that bear much lower price tags. The report indicates that passive television doesn’t provide strong vertical resolution. Nonetheless, consumers who tested the new glasses commented on the great brightness and minimal ghosting. The best rating thus far goes to Panasonic Viera for its 3D imagery.
The executives at Samsung do not believe that 3D glasses can work when you’re laying on your side. LG plans to prove them wrong. Samsung’s 3D glasses technology features active shutters, and they’re hoping to make this an industry standard with the help of Sony and Panasonic.
Meanwhile LG has created film-patterned-retarder technology for their televisions, which eliminates flickers and blurriness. They have the support of Vizio and Toshiba just to name a few. While the 3D effect of glasses diminishes when lying down, it still works. A lot of what drives the commercial success of 3D TVs in this early developmental stage is the ease of use of viewing.
Knowing that gamers make up a substantive part of the 3D potential market, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood appears on OnLive March 22nd.
