I had thought about keeping my LED edge-lit 3D TV for one more year when I found out the news that 3D would no longer be supported in 2017. Although I very much wanted an OLED set, at least I would have 3D for a little while longer before I had to give it up in favor of stepping up to the latest OLED TV. But in thinking about it, I've pretty much decided to buy the 65" LG c6 instead, keeping it for three years, and then upgrading to a 2020 OLED. I have 107 3D titles in my library, (with more to come) and I just can't bear to part with them after only one more year.
The c6 is not a perfect TV; no TV is. I'm aware that it's not as refined as the 2017 models, and as the years pass its technology will be left farther behind. But on its own merits I think I can accept its drawbacks in exchange for that great OLED picture, and especially for what I'm told is the best 3D picture in the world. But I have to act fast in making the firm decision to buy it. Right now it's nicely priced, and even if I sell my LED TV for no more than peanuts, my total investment in the c6 will only be $2,000. As a retiree working part-time I can have that paid off in less than three months.
I will ask some questions on the c6 in another room, but I think I would agree that if a person is tempted to buy an OLED 3D set they had better make that decision soon. Yes, apparently LG has hinted that they *might* re-install 3D in one of their 2017 models later in the year, but waiting on that could be a big mistake, not to mention that it could cost a lot more money than a close-out model for a gain of just 20% in nit brightness.
