Went to my local SonyStyle store over the weekend, and saw the 3D TV for the first time. They had 3 pairs of glasses(chained up), and I had to wait in line to view it. Once you put on the glasses, it was beautiful! They were showing a loop of zoo animals, the polar bear in swimming in the water makes it looks like I am standing behind a glass wall and there's a polar bear right inside the tank! Plenty of depth in the video!!! It's the same effect as on the AVATAR, but in a much smaller scale. The screen is a 42", and I was standing about 10' away due to where the glasses was chained to. It was as good as watching AVATAR, as the screen size is just too small. I think if they can make a 60'-65" TV, I'd be interested in upgrading my 55" this year.

Well, buy the 3D LED 40 and sit 5 feet , matter resolved.




For your HDTV 55 "need to be 7 feet to enjoy 100% of 1080p for little more than 8 feet of 60-65 an HDTV and of course a very good sense of sight. More distance you would see really what is at 720p.

I think display size is going to be the largest limiting factor for 3D HDTV in the home.

Zoo's for the kids but 3D "Blue" Ray could make Porn very interesting, or sports, concerts, Planet Earth = better than any zoo without 3D, et al.

Someone on the Plasma forum said that Panasonic has a 103" going around, I think this is too big and too expensive for most people. but if they can make a 70", which Sony does have a 70"LCD, then that will be a good size for most living room i think.

I went to the local Sony Style store today based on reading this thread. I want to like 3d...I want to justify buying a new tv this year....but it just doesn't do much for me. They had Cloudy with a chance of meatballs playing and wearing the 3d glassess is awkward and the 3d effect seems hokey. Granted I wear glassess and that might have a lot to do with my experience with 3d in general. I might end up buying a 3d set this year just to be future ready but not sure I would use the 3d aspect of it much except for a few movies a year or to show to friends. I would likely use it 99% for 2d HD viewing.

I also saw yesterday the SONY 3D TV in person at the SonyStyle Store in AVENTURA, FL.


#1. It will be 5 years before they are mainstream affordable period. The Industry is still trying to shift everyone to LED. Now 3D.


#2. It looked pretty Dull, don't expect Vibrant Rich colors, The glasses have a grey Smoke tint which Dull everything.


#3. It requires 3D Content where is the 3D content??? Broadcasts? Nope, Only Gaming Maybe.


#4. It WILL DOMINATE because of 3D PORN (Yes 100% true) BUT. These 3D Cameras are Expensive Porn producers work Cheap.

Porn is 100% FREE, How Much will you pay for 1 3D Porn DVD???

(yes I will buy one someday) But FREE is better.


#5. It looked Amazing the Depth is there, clarity also, But How about trying to Get LCD Technology as Good as CRT Tube technology was at Colors and Motion, before We go adding another Feature, that there is ZERO support for right now.



Its like Look at my Awesome NEw Rims and 20 inch tires, on my Beat up rusty 1980 Dodge Dynasty.



I'd rather look at a direct Rich Vibrant colorfull display with my own eyes which I paid alot of money for Lasik Surgery to get corrected, and now have better than 20/20 so Details matter to me.


They call me dead pixel spotter.

WOW! 3D porn! Now we are talking!

I suspect most people on this forum are too young to know this, but it was porn that made the VHS business in the first place. And if I remember correctly, Sony wouldn't license Beta to porn publishers, so they all went VHS.


While I am not a consumer of porn myself, I do think that 3D porn is going to be a really, really big business. And if it's only deliverable on physical media (such as Blu-ray), it will save the porn industry, which is suffering from all the free online porn.


And as if that is not enough, I saw an article recently about a company that has invented a "robotic girlfriend" (which is as 3D as you can get). This link is not the original article that I read, but you'll get the idea:

http://www.foxnews.com/scitech/2010/...ot-girlfriend/ When the cost of this comes down, there will be some people who will never again leave their homes. (Except, why did they make her so ugly?)

You just told us something about yourself, the robotic girlfriend information was really relevant.

I saw the demo featuring Cloudy WACOM also. It was no where near dull though. That particular movie has an unusual color scheme and it's much different than other animated features. Still, I found it to be quite rich in colors with the glasses on. As for the sets being affordable from what news that has been released thus far, 3D sets are not far from last years prices and many (me included) can't wait for them to be released.

They do have a 103" plasma going around, but that's only for their demo truck. They will be releasing a 50", 55" and 65" I believe. I was rather impressed with the technology when the Panasonic truck came to town, but I don't need to be an early adopter on this one as I dropped 3500 bones on a Samsung LED lit LCD last year. I also think the technology will advance quickly to try to get rid of the glasses. DirecTV is supposed to be working in conjunction with Panasonic and three 3D stations are to be online this year. They've also said pricing will be on par with last years high end LED/LCD's, so I'd expect tv's to be in the $3000-$5000 range.
