While it may be true when looking at the poll numbers that "Most don't want or care for 3D in the home"
, it is not appropriate or correct to lump these 2 groups into some broadly based statement to support one's perspective that 3D has no place in the home theater market.
Clearly, 11% want it, 18% dont want it.
In addition, 36% already have it... and yes there are some
in this last group that have it and don't care for it, but we don't know what percentage/how many those are in that group
. From the posts I've been reading over the last 2 1/2 years, I think it is fair to say that those who purchased a set for the 2D quality (like me) most have been pleased with the 3D capability they now enjoy. Again, we don't know what percentage/how many those actually are.In regards to the "Don't Care" group
, 33% ( the second largest group after the "Got It" group)... These votes can not be attributed to the "Don't want it" group any more than they can be catagorized as "Want it". They currently don't care either way
! Otherwise the would have voted in the "Want it" or "Dont want it" catagory. They are happy with the HDTV they currently watch, so it does not matter one way or the other to them!
. When it comes time for them to get a new set, that also may or may not change... those scoping out the $200-300 WalMart set, those looking for the best picture available, those looking for the biggest screen size for the cheapest price (regardless of the picture quality)... there are just too many variables that would potentially affect this large group.
I won't go so far as to say "the vast majority of poll responses show overwhelming support for 3D, with 461 wanting/having 3D, and only 180 not wanting 3D"
Like wise, those who don't like 3D should not include the "Don't Cares" as "Dont Wants"... They are not saying they do not care for 3D, they are saying it makes no difference to them.
These are 2 entirely different things!
I must agree with many of the posts made by other 3D supporters... it does seem that those who do not want 3D are obsessed with no one having it!
(But then they probably think we should all be driving a 2002 Camry like them too!
