Been putting 9000 miles of travel this past month on my body shooting 4K, 3D, and VR360 3D so I haven't been around much. But I did locate the article and dug through it for the date and it was 2016 so that coincides with Tom's report that as of 2017 LG has dropped 3D LED mfg. support but I also saw several reports that Sony was also dropping support too.
Tom, the LG model you posted is the one I have here in my edit suite I believe. The remote control is in Korean, but the TV has English option setting. It is still available through Alibaba in China but with the end of manufacturing, it seems the best option is the used market. I also have my 32" Vizio which fried a couple years ago but I repaired it with a replacement power supply board that cost me ~$75 used part through ebay. It's still working great.
I believe 3D will remain alive as long as content is being produced. For those of us who understand and appreciate 3D, it will never die. Even when 3D stereo was in the low point 15 years ago, I would make it a point to visit Disney World where it was the only place to see 3D.
For something new- be on the lookout for my latest 3D 360 VR productions on my YT channel.
I shot and currently editing:
1. Badlands National Park in 360 3D and in 4K which will require VR goggles to see it. This one was done as a drive through with the 360 3D camera rig mounted on the car roof. I also shot a walking tour of key locations in wide IA 3D and with the Panasonic Z10K. There will also be a 3D car cam road trip as a third production.
2. Mt. Rushmore in 3D 360 and in 4K
3. A walking tour around the cruise ship Celebrity Solstice in 3D 360 4K.
Plus many other 3D documentaries, such as a trip on the White Pass Railroad from Skagway AK to Frasure, BC the scenery in 3D is breathtaking.
