I can't believe that I wasted my money on this crap. The picture in 3D did look better but not enough to get me to sit on my couch for two hours wearing some uncomfortable stupid glasses. Now I know why they did not have the glasses available to consumers at launch. I really wish that I would have ordered the B8500 when it was truly available.
In addition, the flashlight issues on my C7000 looked even worse in 3D.
Alright are you saying your BB had no audition setup?
Would've been wise to actually test the feature and your eyes before plopping down several thousand dollars.
My only reservation after audition personally was whether my eyes could handle the effects of the 3D during a two hour movie - my audition was awesome for 8 minutes though admittedly I found them bothering my eyes and I read a review of the Sony 3D on a European website and they found no such issue with them but did state that the impact is lost if you lean your head sideways or lay down horizontal while viewing 3D - I'm going to give the Sony 3D glasses a go also to see if they have the same bothersome impact which may likely lead to headaches especially for those of us that normally wear glasses.
Are you certain the flashlighting is not just a cause for return - I see all these friggin reports yet in store I've never once observed flashlighting - they have been pitch black during dark scenes. Perhaps we have some folks that are hypersensitive like RBE and RPTV's. Hopefully the C8000 and pinpoint dimming may reduce that impact with it's thousands of microshutters.
