What does "an insane amount of research in person on 3D" look like? Checking them out in stores? That's not the correct approach, though sadly usually the only one available.

Actually, the...

It currently doesn't happen very often, that's the point. Because it's not easy.

My 2-cents, hold off on OLED for (sigh) 1 more year. <----Note, just saying this is flame-bait, so everyone be "prepared" for the inevitable. :-/

The industry never cared about the person who made a backup copy after buying the movie. What bugged them was the guy that made a copy for himself and his 3 buddies and split the cost.

I doubt it. In the case of plasma, PWM was a solution to getting around the fact that a plasma cannot excite at middle levels, despite the occasional mention of some weird attempts in that regard. ...

How does that make it easier to get 3D versions of their films? All it does is produce disks with no identifying paint on them (except for 5pt font on the hub---oye). It saves money (at least for...

Do you suppose free-standing TVs will ever seem "too thin"? At that size, if that was in my living room I'd be afraid to sneeze, curved or not.
