My point was that, “3D Ready or Capable,” TV’s are inevitable. MFG’s will force it down our throats whether we like it or not. I personally wouldn’t spend extra money for a set that has the technology fully built in because we don’t know where it’s going. What most people don’t seem to understand is that the 3D format presents another, “format war,” because there are 3 different ways 3D can be broadcasted or displayed.
I read many posts against my new 3D Ready 73” Mitsu before I purchased it. The negative posts argue that it’s not compatible with other 3D formats even if I purchase the additional box and shutter glasses that Mitsu offers.
Getting back to reality, and forgetting about the limited content available, people need to be aware that unless you have a 50” set or larger, (even with perfect formatting capabilities), the 3D experience is less than exciting and presents no, “submursive experience,” to justify spending extra money for it.
The present 3D format for home viewing, IMO, is worthless and reminds me of the first generation LCD TV’s that lost their brightness due to only 15 degrees of off axis viewing, (horizontally or vertically). MFG’s are trying everything to bring people back into the stores because our business is based on planned obsolescence. By introducing this far from perfected format this early, mfg’s rolled the dice that people will forget how bad or un-exciting it presently is. This only makes all of us dealers jobs more difficult to promote or sell it when it’s actually good to go.
