Sony's BRAVIA® 3D-ready HDTVs can only deliver a 3D viewing experience if you're wearing Sony's 3D Active Glasses. Each eye sees a full 1080p image, just a slightly different version, which is what creates the 3D effect. These adjustable glasses are lighter than previous models and are designed to fit over prescription eyeglasses. The side panels block out excess light to provide an immersive 3D experience.

The TDG-BR250 features a super-fast USB-rechargeable battery. The fast-charging mode takes only three minutes and provides more than three hours of use. The 30-minute full-charging mode provides up to 30 hours of use. Warranty: 1 year.

Note: 2010 Sony 3D-ready TVs also require Sony's TMR-BR100 3D Emitter (sold separately). 2011 Sony 3D-ready TVs have the emitter built in.
