Viewers Choose Passive 3D Over Active 3D TV Sets.
The findings were made after sales of the glasses were recorded over a period of time. There have been very many driving factors that have led to such a trend.
One obvious reason is the price of the glasses. The passive glasses are made using cheap material and are almost similar to the ones found at the local movie theaters. They only cost a couple of dollars and in most cases a set of them is packaged alongside the television.
However for the case of active ones, they are deemed expensive for their purpose. They usually cost between 50 and 100 dollars. When buying the television set, the manufacturer can only afford to provide one or two pairs and the customer has to buy the rest if in need of more which could mean an extra cost when the family is a big one because each person watching needs a pair.
One more reason that people have continued to prefer one than the other is because the costly ones also require a power source like batteries so they can work. The other type however comes ready to function and does not require that it be powered so it works. Technology that does not consume power is greatly welcomed to save on energy costs.
The less preferred choice of glasses tends to work only with the customized sets and not on any other kind of make. Although universal ones are available, they can be very costly. All the more reason for the way people have shifted focus to the other make.
Comfort is the other reason that viewers choose passive 3D over active 3D TV sets. They are made using light material and fit on the face very well and are easy to adjust. The other kind of glasses is heavy and very discomforting.
