But that is a necessity (and I am not too far from needing them myself) and then you have to add another pair over top of those whenever you want to watch 3D, no thanks. And they expect me to pay more this priviledge, ya right.

I can only imagine where the 3d glasses will always endup after the kids, or even myself on somedays, get done watching, kind of like how the remote seems to disappear once in awhile.

Imagine it with a 2-3 year old in the house. Whoops, those $275 glasses are now broken in 4 pieces, with the kid running after you yelling "Fits it! Fits it!"

Not only will the 2 year olds be breaking the generic glasses, the teenagers will be asking for the $500 dollar Oakley version.

Micah, you worry too much. Just wait until your current technology doesn't work any more and then buy the best that you can afford, whatever tech it may be.

3D may be a fad, or not. Depends on how well it can be implemented.

I personally have not plans for a new display for a logn while.

I don't argue this point. I suppose I should look at all of these things a great 'options' rather than seeing them as threatening technologies out to deep six my LCD! I suppose the day they stop broadcasting in 2D, or selling 2D movies and I'm totally shit outa luck, THEN I can come back on here and bitch about it.

Until then, I'll go take my chill pill. \:D

When I'm getting ready to buy something new, I come up with the list of features I feel I need, and then look for a product which fulfills them. I don't let the market dictate lead me too much. Sometimes I come up with a list of feature that no single product yet has. That's when I wait.

The great thing about all of the 3D push from the industry is that the 2D display prices are falling because of it. Now seems to be an excellent time to buy a 2D display, price-wise. I'm not that impressed with the 3D movies overall. I get a headache after about an hour or so. Why would I want a display that can do that all the time.

I am, however, excited about the possibility in gaming though. The ability to having two people racing each other in a racing game and each can view the full screen. Maybe five years down the line, if the 3D thing is still around, I might get a 3D display for that purpose if I need a new display.

That seems to me to be where the greatest promise of 3D lies. I don't exactly know why, but I think 3D has much more value in an interactive environment like gaming.

With a technology like Sony's Move, or Microsoft's Natal, combined with 3D could be interesting. One of the things I complained about is there's no parallax, that when you move your head new information isn't uncovered behind the 3D objects in the foreground. But with the head tracking of those technologies, it could very well be used to change the viewpoint slightly and present a much more realistic 3D experience.

I'm still not buying. \:D
