The good: 3D is good for an LCD at this level, which isn't to say it has the razor-sharp edges of LG's passive system, but it is better than most LCDs for crosstalk. Processing is also good with rock-solid 24p support and an excellent ability to banish jaggies from 1080i content.
The bad: The TV suffers from exceptionally poor black levels, and poor uniformity means that whatever blacks are there are mottled as well. Of our lineup of five TVs, the DT50 had the worst overall picture -- worse even than the ultrabudget TCL L40FHDF12TA. Colors are drab, and any attempt to inject life into the pictures with the Color control makes everyone look like they're permanently blushing.
