I love the 3D effect. I think it is a great addition to the choices we have with this projector. I recently discovered that on my Sony Bluray player two titles that have samples of 3D from Sony (3D and 3Net) which was really cool to watch a streaming presentation! Unfortunately, my AT&T service doesn't carry this, but does carry the samples (go figure) I loved Avatar, Hugo, Under the Sea, Impossible Journey 2, etc. But, I also like the old DVDs I have that look great on this projector, making a purchase on blueray unnecessary. I think I would like to see more "in my face stuff", I definitely wait for prices to come down before I buy anything, and I haven't been to a theater in years because of the prices and lousy popcorn. One thing is evident that 3D varies in quality from movie to movie. Some transfers are better than other. I think the movies that are filmed in 3D (James Cameron) are great, and Hugo was exceptional. The 5020 is a keeper for sure.
