maybe affordable and fantastic 3d isn't here quite yet, but to be fair none of us have seen this PJ in 3d yet.
If we waited for tech to be perfected before we bought it, you'd always be years behind the curve. my guess is, and obviously a complete guess, that watching a 1080p blu ray in 3d on this PJ will be more fun than 2d, and for me thats the threshold of wether or not its worth having. Not wether or not the 3d effect is perfected yet.
monoprice has 3d active shutter glasses for LG and samsung for only $30 a pair. I would imagine that they'll be introducing more and more glasses as will other companies. I don't for see active shutter glasses staying at $100 a crack for very long. the tech in them just isn't that complicated and as more people buy devices requiring the active glasses there will be more and more motivation for third party manufacturers to get in on the action.
I like the idea of multiple video sources at a time very much and the increased panel refresh rate for gaming and sports. In my mind there is a lot of advantages over the 8350 that make it worth waiting. But I don't have a functioning PJ at the moment, so I'm getting more and more jealous by the day of those of you deciding to just grab the 8350. A bird in the hand and what not.
