    kinda regretting the purchase. its cool in the short term. the kids like it. i get a headache after watching it for too long.

    to rent a movie on the 3D channels theyre $10. and theres only 3 other channels that are in 3D.

    i watched a little bit of a college basketball game the other night. that was kinda neat

    Until they figure out a way to do 3D without glasses (and headaches), 3D will remain a niche gimmick in the home.

    I hate that most manufacturers build that shit in now - how about you spend your time making the regular set better?

    I work for Verizon on the FIOS video network, we have a 3D TV here so we can monitor our 3D content and I came to the same conclusion, it is cool for about 5-10 minutes but then you get a headache, and/or sick of wearing those dumb glasses. It's a waste of money and just a novelty at this point.

    I was going to get one for gaming but I think I'd get tired of the novelty.

    Well yeah, I have to admit when we got the TV here it came with a package deal that included a blue ray and Monster vs. Aliens in 3D, animations are way cooler at utilizing that technology than sporting events.
