I had to turn depth up to 7-8 for the full effect (but this introduces very very minor crosstalk so you all may want to keep it at default 5).
Regular TV: I watched the closing round of the Fedex Cup St. Jude's Classic on Sunday. In a word: awesome. The conversion added tangible depth and beyond the window effect.
Netflix: very good. I've watched Psych, Alien vs. Ninja (I was bored, sue me), and some anime and the effect is pretty decent. Not as good as live TV but more than acceptable.
Video games: 3D plane games such as Soul Calibur, Tekken, Gears of War, Halo, were very decent (but not as good as Netflix or live TV). 2D plane games such as Super Street Fighter IV or Marvel vs. Capcom 3 were not as good. No matter how much I turned up the depth, there really wasn't a noticeable difference.
Overall: unlike upconversion of 480p-1080p DVDs, 2D-3D conversion is not a marketing gimmick on the D7000. On the majority of my viewing tests, it did add depth. Of course, it's not as good as native 3D material but it's a decent substitute.
