It is true that you would save some power but you're trying to save something like 20 watts max.
The TV would typically consume about a 100 watts and you'd save maybe 20 watts, which isn't really worth it!
Set it to what you enjoy and do the power saving with your ACs by reducing the thermostat by a degree or two!

The tv reduces the backlight
You get better blacks but at the cost of shadow details.In the Sony lcds there is not much difference in shadow details when you go to high energy saving mode in the night time viewing.

This mode is useful when there is no power and you are running on Inverter/UPS.

In my 46" Sony the power consumption at typical settings is 100watt .In energy saving high its around 55 watt.
The max power consumption can be as high as 150watt at max backlight setting.

LED tvs on the other hand are even more efficient a 2013 55" LED can consume as low as 65watt at optimum settings,with energy saving disabled.

Points noted.
Ideally I should have gone for the LEDs, but back in 2010 they were not that popular.
I will better keep the E.Saving mode to Auto, so it can dim/bright as per the lighting at home.

Hello

I have a Panasonic P42UT50D Plasma, but never owned 3D Glasses and never bought these.

Today I have ordered a Samsung 40F6400 3D LED TV for my mom's room, and it will come with 3D Glasses (2 or 4) I am not sure.

I have a couple of questions.

1. Can I use my Samsung 3D Glasses to watch 3D content on my Panasonic P42UT50D ?

2. Anybody has any idea what file formats are supported for 3D content for Panasonic and Samsung TVs ?

Hi,
as per http://www.samsung.com/in/consumer/t...6400ARLXL-spec The Samsung 40F6400 uses Active 3D glasses, supplied ones are newer GB5100. Also the Pana 42UT50D also uses Active 3D glasses. Im sure they both would work with each other.

http://www.junglee.com/Samsung-SSG-5.../dp/B00BIP816Q - people have reported its working on Pana sets !

also refer an earlier post:

Styler, if the glasses work on blue tooth signals and your Panasonic uses infra red, they will not work, else they will.

Thanks a lot PCPranav and Anup Ji for your inputs.

I got 4 pairs of 3D Glasses (Model SSG-5100GB ) with the Samsung 40F6400.
I just checked and these work perfectly with my Panasonic P42UT50D.
The 2012 Models of Panasonic (50 Series) support the bluetooth Active 3D Glasses. the earlier models used IR.

Now I need to get hold of some good 3D movies for kids. Maybe Toy Story3 and Hansel And Gretel 2013 will be good for a start.

You may want to get 'Despicable Me' in 3D for home viewing, very popular with the kids in our extended family/friends circle. The 2nd part of the movie was released in cinemas a couple of weeks back, my newphews have seen it and now all of us are awaiting the discs to be released

A little OT, but as much as I would recommend the entire Toy Story Trilogy for kids (3D would be just awesome), I would refrain from showing them Hansel and Gretel. It's scary, full of violence, a little gore and not really meant for kids as an audience. It's rated "R" on IMDB.

Thanks for that. By the name I thought it would be for kids. It's not for them then.

Can someone suggest a good Full HD LED/LCD that can play 1080p AVI and MKV files? Also, the sound should be nice. Asking this on behalf of a friend who's looking to buy this for his Grandpa in Bilaspur, MP. (So suggest something that has amazing service network for smaller cities too.)

Need suggestions on this new LED TV I am planning to buy in a week's time.

After research, this is the best match for my requirements: Samsung 40F6100 - Prices 64900 in Chroma/Reliace/E Zone.

Is this good enough? or Can someone suggest me a better TV than this in the same price range?
Also, I am planning to buy it from grey market, any available in Bangalore?

You could also check out the Sony 42W800. In the grey market it will cost about the same as your indicated budget.
I think it's a better TV. And comes with 4 pairs of 3D glasses.

Thanks a lot but 42W800 is available in grey market for 65K but 40F6100 is available for 45K.

The price which I mentioned in my post earlier, was the usual market price.

Another model in my mind is LG 42LA6130 for SELLING PRICE Rs 57199
