I love 3D on my Samsung. True, we don't watch many, but they are great. I'd not purchase a set that didn't allow it. As for the 4g thing I''m sure it will catch on, but until there's some content...

I've got a Samsung ES8000 that I've had 2 years and I love the picture (copied others' calibrated settings and found one I liked). Now I notice the 4k Samsungs are about $2k-$2.5k which is way less...

I don't know what the "one connect box" is. But you should connect all the stuff (BD, Cablebox, Direct V box, AppleTV, whatever) directly to the AVR and the AVR to the ARC HDMI on the TV. Don't sweat...
