Only if glasses free and not much of an increase in cost would I have any interest. I know several people that can only see out of one eye. I don't suppose that they would have any interest either.

I have been looking at new displays for a while now, and in the last couple of months, EVERYONE is recommending these 3D displays... at a certain point i was thinking i was the ONLY one who doesn't want a 3D display, all i want is a REALLY nice 2D display....

glad to see at least 2 other people have the same opinion that i do!

Thanks guys!

I have no desire in 3D either, I watched Sony's demo in a store and it was interesting but the PQ was a little fuzzy to me. I had a hard time keeping things clear, in focus. I can see gaming making use of this technology, but I still do not want to wear glasses to watch TV/Movie/play a game, so until that happens I am opting out.

No no, we've had a pretty big discussion already about how fed up we all are about the industry treating $3000+ dollar telivisions as 'disposable' merchandise, & that we weren't going to buy into it.

It used to be when you went down to shop for tv's, you were ready to purchase something that you planned to enjoy for the next few decades anyway. Now-a-days it seems as if the salesmen are practically telling us, "oh yes, this is our top of the line Plasma/LCD/LED/Laser/DPL that we carry right now, & it should do you very nicely until the 2160p/3D/Hologram/Chrome Electron sets come out in a year or two. At which time you should be sure to come back and upgrade because they're going to be spectacular"!!!

Piss on that. If everyone is out to get a 3D set then at least the really good 2D sets will hopefully come down in price & I can get a good 1 for the bedroom. I guess I should check on ebay for used 65 inch 2D sets, I'll just bet there are people trying to unload their 1 or 2 year old sets cheap so they can get the latest and greatest 3D displays. I'm up for a good cheap 65 inch LCD/LED/Plasma! laugh

Other than seeing 7 of 9 in 3D, I have no use for this technology.

"That is irrelevant".....

Call me old fashioned, but I consider a 3D movie special enough to get me to venture out to the theater to see it on a huge screen. I have a 3D blu-ray, and while I think it's cool, it's nowhere near the enjoyment I get watching 3D at the theater. If I had it at home, it would quickly become old and bothersome...especially if I'm forced to wear glasses watching it. I already see myself switching the tv to 2D for most viewing.

Oh...and I prefer to take out my contacts at night to watch tv. Therefore, I need to wear my eyeglasses. Are they gonna make goggles to fit over eyeglasses?
