Oh, really? It now appears they will be here THIS year.

For those of you who just invested in a new glasses-required 3D TV, I'm very sorry:

Yep..it looks like they're rushing these sets out faster than I thought. No price announced and I haven't seen them in action, but I guess you were right..They're coming this year. When you buy one, let me know how it performs.

Hopefully, these Toshibas aren't garbage. No glasses tvs would go a long way to shutting up the haters and giving the casual folks something to really buy into. I'd be more confident if it were Panasonic releasing these though hehe.

Unless I'm mistaken, a projector will always require glasses.

I went out of my way NOT to buy a 3D player because 2D players are half the price (I live in Korea, mind you). I'll throw this player in the bedroom if/when I feel the need to upgrade in 3 years.
You said you had to go out of your way to buy a 2D BD player because 3D was doomed to failure, that is why I asked now we know 3D had nothing to do with it but just because you are cheap or could not afford it.

or the most obvious reason, I am not an idiot. There is an expression in English "penny wise, pound foolish". You said you boughtan obsolete BD player for 1/2 the price, in a couple of years , let's say you decide you want 3D, what happens, you go to the store and buy that 3D player you could have bought today at 1/2 the price. In the end you p[aid the same as the person taht did not invest in a 3D player but you did not get to enjoy it as much. So how would you be better off. There will always be older and newer, there will always be better and crappier. You need to get what you can afford but if you always buy older crappier stuff all you end up with is low end crappy stuff.

3D graphics using three-dimensional representation of geometric data that is stored on your computer to perform calculations and represent 2D images. These images can be stored for later viewing or displayed in real time.

There will likely be a prototype this year, but it'll be a long time before an autostereo display will be viable for a home tv. Tv companies had been working on current tv's for years as well, just because something is bieng worked on does not mean it'll be out any time soon. Though I would love to be proven wrong.

Even more hilarious that the member that resurrected this long dead thread did so with his/her first post after being registered for 3+ years!
Now THAT is some serious restraint.

From my own experience, my friends who knock 3D are those who canít afford to buy a 3D set.

I have both 2D and 3D and I really enjoy action movies in 3D
