The most notable difference between the two is the 3D resolution. With ACTIVE 3D, you get full HD 1080p 3D playback.

ACTIVE 3D displays require ACTIVE 3D glasses and PASSIVE 3D displays require polarized PASSIVE 3D glasses. The PlayStation® 3D Display supports ACTIVE 3D and the highest resolution.
No. The PlayStation® 3D Display was made to play 3D games right out of the box. With the included PlayStation® 3D Glasses, MotorStorm: Apocalypse Game, HDMI cable, and integrated 3D sync transmitter built into the display, all you need to do is hook up your PS3™system and you’re ready to go.

SimulView™ technology is unique to the PlayStation® 3D Display in that it significantly enhances two-player mode in many games. Ordinarily, two-player mode is played in split-screen format.
