My experiences with Samsung's C6300, C6500 and then the mighty C7000 3D Demo!!
First of all 3D --- I must preface that it's not perfect for sure but DAMN some of what I observed provided a number of Holy Crap moments and depth I witnessed truly was not expecting at all.It took about 3-5 minutes for my eyes to get used to the glasses
and admittedly I had the temptation to remove them and give up but after getting used to them it was amazing --- there were times when the Aliens would point their weapon forward and you'd swear you could reach out and touch the dang thing and the more my eyes adjusted the more depth I could see and more and more WoW moments and as I watch I pondered what football game would be like with this or as I watched the Blond Animated Character in her tight latex within the ship her ass was 3D as she stood there and my mind pondered Jenna Jamison popping out of that screen. Toy Story Woody Alert!
While the experience bothered my eyes somewhat I found what I was experiencing was hypnotic and so different and simply kick ass the 8 minutes I viewed the presentation of Aliens/Monsters that I'm nearly sold on the future of this technology provided I can test a long term viewing with the glasses.
I truly did not expect that items would pop out of the screen but sure as hell they did once my eyes adjusted and not only that - when peering into the screen nearly everything within the panel became 3D - it's actually challenging to put into words other than Holy Crap and WoW once your eyes adjust. I look forward to trying this again with content that's not animation and for extended viewing. I'll also wait to test Sony version to see if there's a difference with their glasses and techniques.
Onto the C6300 and C6500 --- Outside the C7000 which was the 3D Demo that was not displaying normal material the C6500 was the best looking panel in the store IMO (no Mag store so no B8500 or XBR8 to compare) and had an LG LH40 below it and it destroyed that panel and it was slightly better than the C6300 next to it. I am expecting that the Sony HX900 may be the true competitor to the 3D LED Samsungs.
I also found that Sony must have paid attention to the posts on this forum on the EX700 looking inferior to the EX500 and someone must have been ordered to calibrate the EX700's as they were much improved this week and bested the EX500 via calibration and it was very good but not on par with the C6500 IMO and the 3D of the C7000 simply kicks butt if your eyes can handle the tech. Of course unlike owners with in-store viewing we cannot check for flash issue and clouds - in-store viewing with their lighting I observed no such issues - I witnessed deep blacks period.
I would expect to see a lot of feedback on these 3D Demo's with BB having them setup now - IMO it was much better than I expected after viewing feedback on this forum and the future evolution and potential of it brings the possibility of a totally new experience in viewing though it's in infant stages now. Go enjoy it but give your eyes time to adjust
. My observations that after adjusting to the glasses I saw tons of 3D within the panel and coming out of it and I'm picturing a 65" in my HT with the lights off and this baby should deliver far better than sitting in the store.
