Can't believe Otis from the gadget show was touting this as the best thing since sliced bread, I mean even HD viewing is currently a limited thing to get hold of for a lot of us.

I'm not jacking my 42" Plasma in for this for a long time and reckon it will crash and burn due to HUGE cost and limited demand.

So do you want to waste £3000 and look a complete spaz wearing cardboard specs in your lounge for an appalling / rare 3D viewing experience ???.

That is a non question

Give it a couple of years when 3D-TV prices start to tumble the way LCD and Plasma have. 3D-TV is here to stay, but it won't be making a huge splash for a while yet.

Its new technology, it soon will become the standard and will come down in price

I heard otis on radio 1 yesturday, he said not to buy it yet as it is expensive. I dont understand why you have a problem with it, dont like it, dont buy it

Oh and you no likely will be wearing those 'spaz' specs in 5-10 years time

plasmas and LCDs were very very expensive when they originally came out, the 3d I have been told by someone whos seen it first hand says its awesome so complain all you want but most likely be the new thing over the next few years
#5
there are,I believe 4 different formats of 3dtv in development-would be utter suicide to buy before one format becomes the winner.

I saw the report on bbc click about these and James Cameron is a heavy backer of one of the formats so that will carry some serious weight but now is not the time to buy one methinks.

But they have only JUST become affordable to most :thumbsup: . Most people can't even tell the difference from FULL HD or HD ready (especially on the panny plasmas) though the geeks claim it's VASTLY different :thinking:.

Can't see many leaping on the 3D bandwagon in this economic climate when they have only just been able to get a plasma / lcd :? . It would have to be - £1000 to appeal to the masses not just the geeks :whistling:

No one's forcing you!! :thumbsup:

I watched that Click thing too and there was a part when there were 2 projectors on the side of the TV 'carrying on' the picture left and right, making you feel like you were really in it. That's the next step!!

This 3D won't take off anyway cos you have to where stupid rechargable glasses, it'll only become properly popular when the TVs that don't need the glasses are out.


guess we will find out soon enough

just got brand new 37" samsung for xmas so I won't be thinking about another tv for a while now as the samsug is full hd and is amazing.

I can not see the fuss with 3d at the moment as it doesn't seem to add to the veiwing experience.

Eyesight is perfect, just as well really as I'd hate to have to wear a pair of 3d glasses on top of normal ones.

so lets get this staight you went watching avatar in 3d and you didnt like it?



from the sound of his quote "id hate to have to wear" it seems that he didn't go, I wear glasses and had no issue wearing the 3d glasses over mine

The film itself wasn't that great, every criticism of it is apt. As far as the 3D experience goes it was the best I've seen but not significantly better than the output of the past couple of years.

3D just looks artificial. You get a pop up picture book effect as I mentioned earlier, the characters for example look like they're layered on with a static background. It's supposed to "immerse" you in the world but all you can think about is the 3D which is, at the end of the day, a special effect and the best special effects are those you can't tell.

Oh and the glasses reduce the brightness of the image and some of the focus goes too.

I'm hardly some technophobe who fears any sort of change. I love technology, I work in IT, I've had full-HD in my life for over two years as well as HD audio etc. I love technology that advances our movie viewing experience but I honestly think 3D does the opposite and is being sold to us now purely to boost flagging TV sales and increase cinema revenue!

Erm no that's not what my quote implied at all, read it again.
