    3dtv

    Anyone set up with it yet ? Thinking about it? I want it soo bad but there isnt a lot of content yet. I was in Best Buy and checked one out they had setup, it was amazing. Supposedly the PS3 can provide 3D, anybody know anything about that ?

    I seriously believe that it's a fad and I have no interest. Until it works without the glasses I don't think it will ever catch on.

    Have you looked at a nice setup ? I would definitely deal with the glasses to watch certain things like, movies, sports, and play video games. COD would be nuts.

    I agree 100%. 3d is a definite fad. I'm not going to sit in my home wearing ridiculous glasses just to see 3d. I wont even go to a theater and do it.

    The technology needs to be better. I wish it was something you could do without glasses. It's novel in it's own way but I don't think it's as practical as it should be. I do want to try the Nintendo 3DS thought. 3D without the glasses.

    Yep, I've demoed various systems. Like Brian said, it's a novelty. It's kind of neat at first but it's NOT as dramatic as you're thinking. Mostly it's adds a slight amount of depth. I firmly believe that it will play itself out just like it has countless times before. I would say save your money and wait for the technology to mature and the price to come down if you JUST have to have it. However, I would say to spend the extra money on a better and bigger T.V. than something with 3D. You're money will go to better use.

    I went and saw Avatar in 3D and it was interesting to see the technology in action but the glasses kill the experience. I won't bother with it again.

    Same here - sure there's a ton more technology behind in than the last any of the other times that the fad had come back around (ala Jaws 3D, etc.) but to me it's a pure Hollywood gimmick used to drum up ticket sells for an otherwise lackluster movie. My dislike of it only grows when I see movies that weren't even filmed using 3D cameras which are then bastardized to achieve the effect (Alice in Wonderland for example). They just don't seem quite the same - and I don't think it's a placebo effect as I didn't even know 3D camera's hadn't been used to film AiW until after the fact. Compared to Avatar, it just felt flat.

    Personally I hope it's stays a fad - I'm just not sold on the idea. I'll take a good story and characters over carnival tricks any day of the week.

    And that's exactly how I felt about Avatar. It was a horrible movie and it's perfect example of why I hate awards shows. It won how many awards? And it was not a good movie at all. Then again, the public are usually lemmings and they eat the fluff up. I hope that 3D stays a fad as well.

    I guess I am in the minority then, I thought Avatar was a good movie.

    It was entertaining, but I wouldn't call it a good movie. I love Tremors, but that doesn't mean it's a good movie.
