Anyways though such a comparison would be nice for those doing research and considering their options.
The H1 won't do 3-D blu-ray. Plus, there are many hurdles to even streaming the format. So far, I think 3-D BD's are converted to anaglyph (red/blue lenses) format for streaming. No polarized or active shutter technology for BD streams yet.
All the Dune states is that it will support RealD technology, which uses polarized lenses. This is sort of a useless feature, because LCD and Plasma TV's can never do RealD. The device that creates the images must be fitted with a polarizing device called a Zscreen To date, Zscreens only work on projection devices. Further, a Zscreen on your projecter just needs to be the size of your lens ( a couple of inches). To put the same technology on a 50" plasma would require a 50" Zscreen (and the current 4" zscreen is several hundred dollars). RealD is offering to license the technology to TV manufactures (licenses didn't open until just last month). However, I don't think any Tv manufacturers are interested yet.
All this Dune "feature" is really stating is that the Dune will output a1080p144 signal if it is fed one. Any device capable of outputting 1080p144 is technically "RealD compatible". You then need a Zscreen and a device capable of projecting 1080p144.
This is nothing more than a Dune marketing ploy to confuse the masses into thinking Blu-ray 3-D will work on their Smart line. To most people, 3D is 3D and they are not aware of all the various 3D formats.
