- I bought the best picture quality TV I could find, it's only my good fortune that it was 3D capable, and my incredible luck that the emitter, glasses and 3D Bluray were bundled with it for free! I would have gotten the very same TV even if that was not included! You are happy with your TV's and don't forsee another purchase for 6-10 years... fine
, when that time comes, I think you will find very little if any non 3D sets on the market (IMHO)... it is so easy and inexpensive for the manufacturers to include this, it's a no brainer for them!
Same thing goes for Bluray... many if not most homes have not made the leap from DVD to Bluray yet. When the time comes for those people to make that leap,how many Bluray players do you think will be available without such support? You could probably find the $99 Bluray at Walmart right now, but in short order, those will probably become extinct. What Bluray manufacturer would not
include this feature that is inexpensive and easy for them to produce
? Very few I'm sure. Bluray is slowly becoming the standard over DVD's simply because of the quality of the picture and the proliferation of 1080p sets currently
on the market. The next Bluray (or in some cases, the first) most of us will be purchasing will have 3D capabilities, like it, want it , or not!
This stuff isn't just "trickling out"... check out the 3D movies threads here at AVSF and see for yourself what is happening.Johnla
- I must admit, your arguements are not convincing, and worse yet, you don't realize what you have put down actually reinforces the opposite of your opinion!
Yes, people may have the equipment and ability to view 3D content and decide not to use it I'm sure. But your own statements give credit to how this is not just a fad!
The title of this thread is fad vs here to stay. You may not like it, you may not want it, but everything you are saying leads to the conclusion it is here to stay!
I am not saying it's the best thing since sliced bread and peanutbutter, but I have enjoyed my 3D experiences in my home, limited as they have been at this point. I'm very happy to have that ability. I think most others will feel the same when it finally
comes their way (thru upgrading and/or replacing their aging equipment). Those who are rabidly against such a thing (which seems to be the majority here) are unfortunately in for a rude awaking and disappointment I think.... but hey, they don't have to use this "fad" when it arrives in their home... just like they don't have to use indoor plumbing, electricity, heating, refridgeration, automobiles......
