fbunn, I think you are giving people false hope with your 3D is fully supported talk… which you haven't even tested yourself. I find it strange someone from LG saying 3D blu-ray and PC is officially supported when there's nothing about this big feature in the manual or on their product website. You would think they had been advertising with such a nice feature all over the place.. right?
From my experience (HW300G aspect ratio bug) with the LG help desk they are a bunch of idiots having no clue what they are talking about. Must be one of those cheap outsourced Indian help desks or something.

I just got off the phone with support, and they said I would need an HDMI 1.4 compliant source.
Unfortunately, I can't test it until I get a 3D blu ray player.
Yes the remote has a 3D button on it, but this button only works with the 1024X768 @120Hz resolution.
And this is also the only resolution that works with 3D that you can find in the manual. Look it up yourself.
When feeding the PA70G 1280x720 @ 120Hz the 3D options are not available anymore. In the settings menu it's disabled and pressing the 3D button on the remote give a "Not available" message.
The problem with the native 1024x786@120Hz 3D resolution is that its not a standard and so not useable with Blu-ray players and other devices other then a PC. And another problem is the 1280x720 @ 120Hz is not officially supported by this PJ and so you will not be able to select this resolution on you Blu-ray player, PS3 etc etc. On the PC you can make a custom resolution, on a Blu-ray player you can not.. well most of them.
If you want to use this PJ for 3D viewing you have got the following options:1024x768 @ 120Hz
PC --> Shutter glasses natively working with the PA70G1280x720 @ 120Hz
PC --> Nivdia 3D Vision shutter glasses with IR emitter (or another brand)
Blu-ray, PS3, Xbox360, etc etc --> Optima 3D-XL with shutter glasses
So unless LG is cooking a new firmware that gives us real 3D support, I think these are the options we have now to enjoy 3D with this PJ.
And don't get me wrong, being able do to 1280x720 @ 120Hz already make me very happy
I attached some pages concerning 3D from the manual, maybe they can be useful for some.
