Would better 3D glasses improve the 3D on my TV?

Episode 971 (57:13)

Cindy from Ventura, CA

Cindy just got a new LG 3D HDTV, but the glasses aren't that great. Is there a better brand of glasses? Leo says no. They're not going to be any better because the technology is a passive 3D, which just appears dim. It's just the nature of the 3D beast. Cindy says it doesn't even really look 3D all the time. Leo says that Oakley makes better 3D glasses but Cindy has to know if it's RealD 3D or some other technology. She needs to get the right glasses for the type of 3D that the TV uses. The best ones are made by Gunnars. They're very high quality. She could even take them to the movies, but they aren't cheap.

The chatroom says to make sure the room is darkened, and avoid 3D upgraded content. The movies that are made in 3D are always going to look better than ones that have been converted. Avatar, The Hobbit, and Toy Story 3 are all good examples.

UPDATE: The chatroom says that there's a 3D depth setting in the menu. So if she adjusts that she may have a better 3D experience.
