I've got a Panny 50VT25. I've used the 3D twice.

But I didn't buy it for that, it was just a bonus.

3D = gay

But you will not be able to buy a decent tv without it.

3D is cool but you'll rarely use it. I just picked up this mofo today:

You can get the sharp TVs without the 3D making them significantly less

Haha it is funny that they call it 70" "class" because it really isn't 70" viewing area

You'll sacrifice picture quality going to a non-3D set.. Most of the higher end TV these days are all 3D..

led is lcd. LCD televisions are either backlit by leds or fluorescents. And chances are the majority of led televisions people buy aren't even the good led sets. the term led is a bit vague when it comes to tvs and is used for marketing since most people see led and assume led = best ever.

Older ones didn't have as deep of blacks and the response time wasn't as good so you would get motion blur. Also now they have better (higher) contrast ratios. That's all TVs though

If I were to buy another TV today it would HAVE to have local dimming if it were LCD. After having my XBR8 there's no way in hell I could ever go back to normal LCD/LED shit.

Some of the tvs out there allow you to convert shows/games/movies to 3D. The only 3D Blu ray I watch is Avatar, that's about it. I still like to watch movies the old fashioned way.

It's like saying oh I lose my remote all the time and I have to buy new ones.

Don't you get some decent discounts if you are working at corp?

tvs used to be even more for the higher end shit. Only in the last 5 yrs or so have prices come down.
pay 1k for a decent set like the rest of society and move on with life.(or if you want to cheap out buy a 720p set for $500-800 depending on size)


I remember when my pops bought a 55" rear projection in '96. It was like 5k

I don't have a 3D TV, and in the few seconds that I tested one at Costco, I've got zero interest in it. Seems pretty useless to me.

I've used it a couple of times just see how it works.
Then glasses were put away.

Last time I wanted to experience again, the batteries were needed be charged so I didn't bother.
Samsung Hub puts out all kinds of 3D movies but I rarely go on it.

actually it wasnt that bad. More awkward in size than actual weight.
I had it up until 08 when I bought a new tv. I moved it around quite a bit. I then sold it to a buddy and it was still working great last I heard

it was just a giant pita to move because it took up so much space and you need two people to move it.(due to the dimensions)
