    My 2012 Panasonic glasses are light as a feather and only cost me $40.

    Actually, I'm good with HD. Canadian HD hockey feeds is all I would like to see being an Edmonton Oilers fan... We did get one SportsNetWest feed last season and one is better then none. None is how much NHL we are seeing now unfortunately.

    I would have expected a Sith Lord to ONLY travel that way.... unless he was bored or something... ;)


    Regardless, it's pretty standard in South Georgia... so I would have assumed it was nationwide by now... ;)

    The passive glasses are light and cheap, they're the same as the ones you get when you go to see a 3D movie in the theater. In fact you can bring those home and use them. You can even walk around the house while you're wearing them.

    Dripping...
    One of my 3D TV's is a Samsung which uses Blue Tooth to keep the glasses and TV in sync. I have no problems walking around the floor that the TV's on and losing sync. And the old argument of glasses costing too much is getting a bit stale. BestBuy for example has Samsung 3D glasses for $19.99 and they are lighter then the sun glasses I use when outside.

    Yes, glasses 3D will be nice, when it can match the quality that you can get now with the active or passive glass wear. But I'm enjoying 3D now and not having to wait for something that's a few years or more down the road.

    That's all well and good. I still have my first HD TV set, a Toshiba, that I bought in the late 1990's. It cost my $3700.00, for a 34" CRT. No digital tuner for OTA and had component video outs. I've bought 7 more HD sets since. I've got a 22" that cost me $89.00. I feel like a chump, for paying all of that money out, in the late 90's. Of course, I can say the same thing, that I enjoyed it, before anyone else did. At least I could receive HBO and ESPN. It's hard to swallow, years later, once technology moves forward and you get HDMI outputs and 1080p picture quality. At least there's over 100 channels of HD programming that I can still use on my old Toshiba. I have to wonder if there will be any more content, then there already is for 3D, going forward. I still look at my DVD-A, SACD and HD DVD equipment that sits dormant in my closet. It does get maddening.

    I'm not sure I see any additional 3D content coming to TV providers outside of additional PPV channels. Perhaps HBO or Starz could eventually offer a channel, but they might just use VOD for those options.

    I expect the main source for 3D content going forward will be from Blu-ray, and NOT linear channel programming.

    It's too soon for 3D TV!

    I knew that was a mistake when DirecTV got involved (c. 2009).
