Sorry if this is the wrong place, I usually only post in the PC hardware sections...

Anyway, I need help with buying a 3D TV, I have been playing 3D on my 40" LED for a while now (blue/red mode) and am really enjoying it. (Apart from the colour change)

I'd like a proper 3D TV though that can turn 2D images into 3D with the push of a button.

My main question is:

Should I go for active or passive 3D? I sit roughly 4ft from my TV.

Also I'd like some help choosing the best one for the price.

I want something 40inch or bigger.

I currently have these in mind:

Active:
