I have heard the degredation in quality is pretty much nil...My biggest reason for asking is that on Ebay u can buy movies like tangled and megamind(samsung version) that the seller only includes the 3d disk...It would be nice to know that I could also watch it in 2d mode if I got tired or fatigued from the glasses...Thanks again for the replies...
Generally you should prefer movies where the 2D and 3D versions are on separate discs. In order to display properly, 3D must have significantly boosted contrast, brightness and color. IF you view that as 2D (one eye), it won't look as good as a version that is authored for normal 2D.
So generally on discs that are "combo 2D/3D", if the 2D presentation looks good, the 3D will be dark with less color and detail. Or if the 3D looks right, the 2D won't.
These issues are usually less obvious on animated films that are super-bright to begin with. Many of the early bundled titles fall into this category with both presentations on one disc.
