I absolutely love it. There's nothing more rewarding than to see a great, well produced 3D movie in my dual projection theater. I hope it improves and stays around.

I've got it, on an Epson 3010 with a 106" screen.. my family and i love it! Our theater totally owns the local cinemark xd theater!
Brave was jaw dropping last night!

I think that the 3D help the Movie industry. With Hi def out in every Home I'm sure that hurt them most people decide to stay in and watch it with the same quality as in theaters.

I have it but don't care about it. We have not used it a single time. It just so happened that LG's best TV came with 3D at the time...

I have stigmatism in both eyes and found myself straining at the movies. I also 2 have small kids 8 & 5 and neither really cared for 3-D. The few movies I hav seen in the theaters didn't blow me away so I also questions transfers to BluRay so at the end of the day I bought an Epson projector without 3-D. I think it my be almost standard in TV's over the next year. Whether people use it or not is another thing.

I rather watch 2D myself personally don't care much for 3D.

When I first saw Avitar in 3D I was amazed and hooked. When Titanic first came out I think my daughter had it on 20 out of 30 day the first month it was released. Didn't think I would ever want to see it again, but must admit on 3D I really enjoyed the movie. Can't wait for more releases.

I didn't care for it much at first but when I upgraded my Samsung tv from the UA40B6000 to the UA55D7000, I was amazed at how much better the 3d exprience was at home as opposed to the exprience in the theatre. I now have over 30 3d titles.

I love 3D but I do understand it isn't everyone's cup of tea. I wonder sometime if some of the haters just got off on the wrong foot with it somehow. Like early in the game when things didn't work so well or if they may not have had good equipment for reproduction themselves. Once you get a bad taste and make a stand, it's hard to get over it. My JVC 55 and 136" Scope Carada BW work awesomely in 3D reproduction. Still, there are some movies better than others, but I'm still glad I did my research and when choosing my components, I factored in choices that would reproduce 3D well. It is plenty bright, It doesn't make me want to throw-up and not a person that's experienced it has had anything negative to say, even when pressed for an honest opinion. If done well, it's both fun, different and entertaining.

Although it was not my primary reason for getting w new TV a couple of yeare ago, it came with it, as well as the 3D player and two pair of glasses, and the complete Shrek series in 3D. I had the picture calibrated on the set for the best picture possible, which I would recomend for anybody, (3D or not). As others have mentioned, some movies are better than others, but I enjoy watching 3D, as does my daughter and her hubby. Shoot, it is a reason for us to get together! smile.gif They like it too.

(emphasis mine)

I strongly concur. I think many people made a decision that they're not for 3D due to legitimate issues, but stick to it in the face of quality (or lack of interest in quality) due to human instinct to stand your ground.

I'm running an HW30 on a 130" fixed screen -- didn't want 3D, expected it to be a waste, but man I was wrong. I totally agree, with good content WOW is the word. On a large screen with good content the effect is deeply immersive. I can't comment on how it would be on smaller screens.

Those are my comments as a reformed skeptic.

Just watched Kungfu Panda 3D last night on the Benq W7000, what an amazing 3D movie. The W7000 is one top notch projector for 3D.

I think 3D is here to stay with the introduction of Bluray this time round.

I really don't want it or need it, but since the new decent sets come with it, well, I guess I have no choice.

Honestly though,

I'd rather make out the 3D experience to be something worth while and fresh. That being once or twice a year in an actual theater.

Please lose the 3D in home feature for me and focus on making better televisions.
Even 3d gaming.......meh.

Where glasses while watching tv no thanks! I would rather have manufactures focus on other things like color accuracy and for lcd black level.

I already have and really enjoy 3D. I was in the market for a new LED TV and the best one I could get at the time also happened to be 3D and came with a free 3D Blu-Ray player and 4 pairs of 3D glasses. I can honestly say that it does make a pretty big difference for a few movies and just plain enjoyable. I would not watch regular TV in 3D. I have tried the convert to 3D option a few times with mixed results and decided it is not worth it when watching 2D sources.
With my current 3D TV, I get clearer and more accurate 3D than in any of my local 3D theaters that I have gone to recently. Since I enjoy well done 3D content it is really nice to have it at home, especially since the experience is generally better.

In the real world you would be able to focus on the background.
Some people -- many people -- don't have an adverse reaction to this, but some do. I'm one. Flat-frame 3D is simply not for me. It will take some new imaging technology that lets the eye focus wherever it wants to on any visible object for 3D to work for me.
I don't begrudge the enjoyment people get from this. I've seen a couple of 3D movies, and I think the effects are fun and can add to a movie -- but not for me. It's not worth the discomfort.

This may not be very far away. They have accomplished it with photographs:

The hardest part may be finding a way for the focus to automoatically shift with the movement of your eye.

Now watching a new 3D movie is a treat and something I look forward to. Buy them for around $20 when on sale. Madagascar 3 this weekend! Wish Netflix or Redbox rented them. Now own 15 3D movies - no plans to stop any time soon.

Our Redbox rents 3D movies, which is funny because a friend of mine unknowingly rented a movie and watched it at my house with our 3D BluRay and our 2D projector. They actually watched the blurry image for an hour before calling me to find out what was wrong with my TV. I didn't even realize my BluRay player had 3D until then. The 3D was actually watchable with passive lenses, but the effects were mild at best. I am buying a second projector for my basement, and I intend to buy 3D if I can find a good projector with passive glasses. I love the idea of doing a full screen split screen for two player games with modified glasses as someone posted earlier.

hmmm.... 32% "Don't Care"

I have noticed that there have been several posts by folks just like me. I got a set that I wanted, and 3D was not a consideration, just an available option. I bought it on sale that included the Blu-ray player, transmitter and 2 pair glasses. I'm laughing at my good fortune, since I have grown to appreciate what 3D adds to the experience (when done well). I think a large portion of the "Don't Care" are in that position simply due to the fact that they are not in the market for a new set in the forseeable future, having recently purchased a new flat panel/Hi Def set. When the time for them to replace the current set they have comes around, even more sets will include this option than are currently available. I think many, if not most will enjoy 3D. I'm not saying they will prefer everything in 3D (just as all those who already have it are not advocating for) but they will come to appreciate what it offers, however often or rare they may utilize it.

Yup, no question.... it does belong in the home. I'm looking forward to further releases (Life of Pi, Hobbit trilogy...) when they are released in theaters, but I'm really looking forward to having these in my "home theater library"!

50% don't want it or don't care after how many years ? Wasn't the original poll like 68%.

Yea and add in those who don't want it or don't care but it just came with set and it probably is 75% biggrin.gif

19% Don't Want.... Don't want & Don't care are two separate things. Regrettably, I cannot view what the "Fad poll" numbers were, but they were significantly higher than 19%

I say the numbers will increase for those who want it, as well as those that have it... gradually, over time as sets are replaced, as the format improves and the content increases.
What will deter wide spread acceptance will be:
1) The need for glasses and the reluctance of those who don't want to wear them
2) Those with visual difficulties that don't allow them to enjoy it (from headaches, eye strain, stygmatisms, etc.)
3) Content poorly converted (or poorly shot) by the movie studios & directors

J. Cameron, M Scorsese and a few others have shown how to do it right. The biggest deterent I believe will be the lack of quality content, not the first 2 variables, IMHO

Give it time! As I said previously, there are many posts by folks like me. They got their set not looking for 3D, but have become enthusiastic supporters. Early adopters rejoice we have been in on this from the beginning. cool.gif

Some people are quick to judge but it is a marvel once you have it.

Until the Star Trek Holosuite (or whatever that was) comes along, I'll enjoy projected, active 3D. If the Porn Guys get that Holosuite thing going, the human race would probably just die out. tongue.gif

About six months ago I bought a LG 47LM6700. I didn't buy it for the 3D, but I was intrigued by reports that the newest LG models switched to using circular polarizers, which did a lot to improve the 3D experience. I figured that if I had 3D available, I'd probably use it from time to time, but it certainly wasn't a priority. As it turns out, now I'm a big fan of 3D. The circular-polarized glasses are very light and pretty comfortable even over an extended period (by comparison, I doubt I could ever wear those heavy active-shutter glasses for an entire movie's runtime), and the effect is at least as good as in theaters. Not every 3D movie is done well, but when they're done well (as with IMAX documentaries, as well as more and more movies), it's marvelous!

As for the argument that 3D doesn't add to the story, I wonder if those people also watch all their movies in black and white, since that also rarely adds to a story. For me it's about immersion, and well-done 3D adds a lot of that.

Yea, they are seperate but add up to either apathy or distaste, neither of which are good for 3D. Adding to that that a lot of folks get it with the display so have it but really don't care. I wish the new poll had had similar wording to the old one so that they could be compared as a reference to change of attitude towards 3D.

I have grand kids...and I want a 3D set, probably passive 3D.
Funny though, except for a couple visits to Best Buy, I've never seen 3D at home or in theater, except at Disneyworld.

My seven year old likes 3d movies.
