First tests of 3D TVs

When you test as many products as we do here at Consumer Reports, it's hard to get folks excited. Well, we managed to do just that with our 3D TV tests. As you'll see in the accompanying video, the engineers, editors, and other members of our staff had pretty strong reactions to the 3D TVs we're now testing.

Our preliminary test results speak for themselves. The 3D effect is realistic, to put it mildly. Our engineers, and the rest of us who put on the wraparound specs, were bobbing and weaving when the paddle-ball from Monsters vs. Aliens seemed about to fly off the screen and hit us.

Take a look inside our labs for yourself and see what all the excitement is about. We'll be posting lots more from our 3D TV tests, so check back often.
