Anyone buy a 3D TV?

Postby AshleyK » Tue Jan 25, 2011 4:01 pm

So after all the noise about 3D last year, did anyone actually buy a 3DTV and if so, has it worked out like you hoped?

For those who didn't buy one, are there any compelling reasons to buy one this year?

I just can't see :oops: the attraction really. Just seems to much hassle for some debatable improvement on some films.
I guess one day our kids will think it's completely normal - just like realistic holograms, full virtual reality etc.

Being one of the few people i know to actually enjoy the 3D movie experience I honestly think that it was a stupid idea to release 3D television. And if they are stupid enough to ever replace our tvs with 3D tv in the future then i feel sorry for all the antimetropic, anisometropic and amblyopic people. Who really wants to sit and watch tv after a hard day of work wearing those awful glasses anyway?!

I had a squiz at some 3D TV's and was amazed at how crap it all was. I couldn't imagine wearing those glasses all the time and the picture just seemed to be a bunch of 2 dimensional characters set in differing depths of field. A bit like a one of those old pantomime type stage shows. Bloomin rubbish in my humble opinion of course :roll:

I've only seen the demo's in store, and the movie was anaimated rather than live action, but my impression was very much the same.

Personally I have no interest in investing in this gimmic.
