To the nay sayers, you WILL regret when your neighbor has a 3D capable set and your kids say ooh, aah, and tell Daddy to get the same. The 3D opposers paint the picture as if getting a 3D capable set is just for 3D and nothing else. In fact, a 3D capable set is just like any 1080P HD TV, with a higher refresh rate of 120Hz instead of 60Hz. You could still use it as a regular TV, but for those occasions when you want to turn on 3D game, 3D bluray, or, eventually paid 3D sport broadcasts(boxing,football, mud wrestling, etc), you have the ability to do so.
And the glasses, what's wrong with them? Do you have any problems wearing those glasses in 3D theaters? If not, why do have a problem wearing it at home? If you have not worn a 3D glass and have not seen a 3D movie, then I don't think you have enough knowledge and hence interest in the subject to have a meaningful discussion.
Nothing wrong with 3D glasses if (1)you don't mind the eye fatigue which sets in for most people after 30 or 35 minutes, or (2)you are unaware that Philips has been demonstrating its 3D HDTV system in Europe right now, which does NOT
require glasses(a Steven Spielberg
company has also been working on a no-glasses 3D HDTV system since 2005), and/or (3)you assume that the manufacvturers and movie studios have done intense, in-depth market research upfront
which reveals that consumers WILL like those clunky 3D glasses, and are willing to pay more for it that way. (After all, just think of the extraordinary, all-out research Sony did in advance of spending(and losing) BILLIONS(that'w with a 'B') on 2D Booray, which now commands a paltry, embarrassing 8.86%
share of market for all of 2009 thru 3rd week of August, according to unofficial numbers - and which is actually DOWN
from 10% in July).
