No one ever has been able to match the perfect 3D rendering of the DLP sets. If only they could be brighter they would be perfect. But cross talk wise they are where the bar is set.

I have to agree after seeing the 3D image on the passive LG 79UB9800 79-Inch 4K Ultra HD that it is a step up from the active 3D sets I have owned. With the 4K display and the image doubling of the...

I prefer the 16X9 aspect ratio for viewing 3D at home. I have always felt SAR as a gimmick and it still amazes me that Christopher Nolan has the nerve to call 3D a gimmick while giving a pass to his...

Disney 3D Blu-ray Petition

Someone has put up a Change.org petition for "Release 3D Blu-Ray versions of Disney movies that had a 3D theatrical release". I don't have much hope that Disney cares what 3D consumers think but it...

A "3D-like effect"

Yes Roger Ebert has gone to his 3Dless reward. It seems the 3D feature is only being retained on the high end TVs. However, all the model information isn't in on the 2015 models.

I'm really shocked to read that Disney is going to show the prequels in 3D given Disney's weird 3D policy. We can only hope that the Disney Star Wars division has the same kind of decision making...

I agree.....Also, each month 3D TV falls further out of favor with the studios here in the US. If Ultra-D sets do come out we may have to order them from abroad like Disney blu-ray 3D titles. It...
