Agreed. I bought a 55" Samsung 3-D when they first came out and returned it after a week; 3-D that small didn't do anything for me. Soon after that I picked up a cheap Optoma 3-D DLP projector to go...

At least they don't have a $6000 MSRP, but I think at the time we paid around $600 for the projector. The comparable model they have now is $200. I couldn't even dump ours on ebay for $50. Our...
