Anyone here pick up the 42" version of this set? The current sale at Sam's has allowed me to talk the wife into upgrading our 3.5 year old 42" Vizio (GV-something model) LCD, which has ran like a champ. 42" is perfect for our living room and I'm really looking forward to upgrading to LED lighting, better contrast, the internet apps, and dabbling in 3D.
Our viewing distance from the TV is approximately 8'. Will viewing 3D on a smaller screen from that distance hamper the effect? My 3D source options will be the few channels DirecTV offers through the HD package, as well as an updated PS3 and 360.
I read through this entire thread and am cognizant of the crosstalk issues with some sources, but it sounds like the 2D picture is simply fantastic, so that's good enough for me. I'm dying to get a 3D TV into my home, but it honestly will be just a bullet point for what I'm able to watch, not define it. The wall opposite the TV is where our large living room windows reside, so hopefully the glossy screen will not prove to be a distraction.
I appreciate any input from those with the 42" version of this TV.
On a side note, when my wife and I started discussing buying a 3D TV, she initially didn't want it at all, to which I came to find out was because she exclaimed that she didn't want to have to wear the glasses all the time just to watch TV. She assumed that with all the "you have to wear glasses and they suck" talk with mainstream news about current 3D, that you have to wear the glasses 100% of the time to watch anything. She was relieved to find out the truth.
