I don't know, $1000 street for a 47"
Vizio E3D470VX (Wonka's TV) doesn't seem so inexpensive when one can pick up a 73"
DLP for about the same money. (my ex wife recently got a 73" for under $1000)
A 73" TV has over two times (2.41) the viewing area of a 47" TV, so a 47" should cost about $400 to be even comparable in price, let alone less expensive. One could buy a lot of active glasses for the $600 difference, instead of spending it on passive technology.
A 55" LG passive is going for around $2000 on amazon. Twice the price for a little over half (56%) of the viewing area. One could get an 82" DLP for less than that price. 82" of 3D heaven!
Not all people want a large screen TV, however, so it's perfectly okay to buy a smaller TV if that's what one wants, but don't say it's inexpensive technology.
