Will you get a 3D television when they come out?

It's doubtful; there are a lot of other things I'd buy before paying the premium for a feature I wouldn't use.

$1500 is a lot to waste on a novelty.

When 3D movies/TV shows are more common, sure.
12 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 4/14/10 - 8:44:33 AM EST (GMT-5)
Not any time soon.

Wouldn't it make more sense to just use the same 3D glasses they give you in the theater and a normal TV (playing a 3D version of the film, of course)?

Doesn't work like that. Theatres have to have special projectors and fitted to play 3D movies.

I imagine that even with a 3D TV, you would still need the glasses, but the TV itself would have to be able to display the 3D image.

F-ck that.

I hate all this crap.
12 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 4/14/10 - 12:13:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
Waste of f'in money
12 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 4/14/10 - 12:46:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
I won't get them even if/when they become mainstream. 3D is just an excuse to put less effort into writing and acting.
12 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 4/14/10 - 8:54:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
HA Already got one!LG INFINITI!!Its real nice!
12 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 4/14/10 - 9:16:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
Don't you know that 3D gives you cancer?
12 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 4/15/10 - 12:19:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
no because it wont work anyway. The effect will be trivial and anyone dumb enough to buy one will be promptly disapointed. And no i dont even need to see one of these TV's to know this will be the case, because it is ALWAYS the case.

Really? We had 3D glasses for our Organic chemistry class. I don't think the computers we were using them with were particularly special. Why couldn't you display 3D on a regular monitor? It's not like the display itself has to be 3D.

Watching anything 3D for more than 15 minutes gives me a headache. That, and I've got better things to spend $1500 on than a TV that I need to wear 3D glasses to watch.
12 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 4/15/10 - 3:53:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
more than 6000 dollars . When I did the sample At best buy the guy said they only do movies ! waste o money !
12 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 4/15/10 - 3:57:53 PM EST (GMT-5)
We don't even have HD TV.

Older 3D images were made simply by overlaying different colours. Newer technology (such as that used in Avatar) is much more complex. Obviously I can't say I fully understand it, but the actual image source, whether projector (for large screens), or LCD has to be specially designed to display the images.
12 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 4/16/10 - 3:44:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nope, if I do get it I will wait for it to become cheaper and for more programmes to be made 3D.
11 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Thursday 7/15/10 - 4:31:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. Because it is soo unneccessary.
10 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 3/28/12 - 11:45:38 AM EST (GMT-5)
No. I think its a terrible waste of money. Even the ones where you don't have to use the glasses still suck.
10 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 3/28/12 - 1:51:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. I like the regular televisions.

Just like I know I won't like sushi even though I like every fish I've ever tried. I thought 3D TVs have been available for a lot longer than a year.
