are you using for your home theater? and why did you pick that brand?
That is LCD.. and LED (which is an LCD with LED lights) is really what you want.. Better blacks, More on par with PLASMA and you also want one with "LOCAL DIMMING" when you buy one...
There isnt too much content broadcast but you can get a 3D BLURAY and enjoy 3D.. on DIRECTV we have 3 channels.. ONE being ESPN 3D and it looks awesome...A huge percentage of people can't enjoy it, lack of content, poor content, and little benefit to 3D. No thanks.
a lot of this is because of the ACTIVE 3D.. now if you are having the same issues with passive 3D in theatres the thats a different issue.. but passive works different and helps with the headache since the refresh rate is different AND it doesnt have shutters on the glasses to contend with...3D gives me a headache (I'm epileptic), and doesn't look the way I think 3D should look anyway.
I'm quite happy with my 47" Sharp Aquos. I rarely watch TV anymore anyway - less than 3 hours a week I'd say.
yo are 100% right.. I bought the TV because it had 3D but more so because it was 55" and had an awesome picture in 2D. 3D is great WHEN you find something to watch.. I wonder if the super bowl will be in 3D? I have watched a few football games in 3D on ESPN 3D and its nice.... BUT remember, 3D isnt supposed to JUMP out at you .. it is supposed to show depth as your eyes really see it...Epilepsy or not, about 20% of folks either have trouble seeing the 3D, or get eye strain and headaches (the problem is widespread enough you can buy glasses that convert 3D back to 2D for a more enjoyable experience). Other than Avatar, I can't think of a single 3D experience where I didn't prefer it in 2D. For the last year, my wife, friends, and I make a point of going to the 2D option at the movies, which, thankfully, is getting easier to do.
And is also one of the key reasons the headaches occur is such a large number as well. Good point.3D as it's currently being implemented both in tv and movies won't last as it does not allow the eyes to function in a normal manner.
