The 3DTV debate - great new article

So 3DTVs are around the corner. I was out with someone on Saturday who said they already had one (no reason to doubt, he's very rich), some people on here have mentioned getting one and a few of you may have watched a 3D football match in selected pubs.

Now I can't stand 3D in any form (except maybe gaming), I just think with all the developments in TVs the past few years. Large screen sizes and near picture perfect high definition why would we want something that looks so artificial and actually reduces picture quality for the sake of the gimmicky effect. Now I know why the TV companies are pushing it but why should we fall for it?

Good article here on Trusted Reviews:

I watched it in a pub a few weeks ago. I was very disappointed... its a silly gimmick and really a waste of money... i don't think ill be getting one any time soon.

I think one of the biggest issues with it aside from picture quality is that, as mentioned in that article and in some others, the screen sizes are just too small to get the full effect. In another article the guy said that a 65" 3DTV was too small from 8 foot away!

I won't buy one.
I'm happy with a nice 2D LCD with surround sound.
I feel no need to have any 3D effects, no matter what movie.

Although i would only feel the need to upgrade if they started making Virtual Reality movies and games :) that would be awesome.

To be fair though, in the case of the new Panasonic one, the 2D aspect is supposed to be top rate anyway so if you're buying a new high end TV in the next year then it may come as standard. Maybe it won't be a case of shall I go 2D or 3D but only 3D available.

Glasses need to come down from around £100 a pair. You get a couple with them but pricey if a family of 5 for example. Not that 5 of you would be able to all sit in the 3D sweetspot...

Have you seen one in the flesh yet? I'm itching to actually have a demo of one. I'm basing my strong dislike on what I've seen at the cinema and what experts are saying.

my bro works for a certain company and has seen them and demo'd them live and he is going to buy one so they must be doing something right

the tvs will alos be quite highly spec'd also so that maybe another reason why he is getting one to replace his current set and increase the size of his set also

I know a lot of people who love 3D at the cinema so I know not everyone shares my view.

I don't like 3D, no interest whatsoever, maybe for games but that'll be a while yet. But no way I will watch a HD film with crappy lenses over my eyes. I want a true cinematic experience not some 1950's novelty revived with abit more bling than before.

I can't see it taking off.
Screens are just far too small to get anything decent.

I'll stick to my 12" Haiutsumani Black and White with the loop aerial.

My thoughts exactly. I do fear a future where cinema is so dominated by 3D that you'll have no choice like you do now to watch one in 2D.

3D has a long way to come yet. The picture doesnt "jump" out right in front of view, it gives more of a distance perspective BEHIND the screen (i.e perspectives going into screen rather than popping out).

Well that depends on what they intend the image to do, there's no reason for them not to make something pop out. Obviously something popping out would be artificial though.
