With the promotion of the technology, the state-of-the-art TVs have already possessed the functions of 3D. This study collected relevant literature to identify the key factors affecting the image quality of 3D TVs. Then we apply Taguchi Method with large is better quality characteristic. Thirty subjects were recruited in this study and we ask them to fill out the overall image quality. Through the calculation of software, the S/N ratio were found, then we can get significant factors and contribution ratio and finally the optimal parameters were obtained. The result of this study can be a reference for future product design, in order to enhance customers’ intention to buy 3DTVs.
