    I liked the Golf in 3D. Really gave a good perspective rather than everything looking flat. Some football was good but camera shots from some stadiums are so high that there wasn't much difference between that and 2d. Bball... well I don;'t bother to watch it anyhow, but it looked like it was more beneficial for 3D from the ads they ran.

    You don't sell 3D sets without content and without sets they don't make an effort to program more 3D. Self defeating it seems.

    Oh well, 3D movies and nature shows are still good.

    That's where you can tell what's going to happen before it happens - I just asked by daughter.

    So glad that TV manufacturers are wasting resources and hardware on this mess.

    It would seem those of us who picked the "it's a fad" side are being proven correct over time. I have nothing against 3D... but I've seen several iterations of "3D is the best and here to stay" come and go... this really felt like more of the same... better technology now than ever before, but still a passing fad.

    Yep. Yet we were the ones who were "out of touch". LOL.

    I actually do have something against 3D. If a movie is in 3D, I most likely will not be able to see it in a theater since my wife hates 3D. Gives her a headache. But since theaters get to charge a premium for 3D, they are not motivated to show a non-3D version. The quicker the fad dies the better.

    And as the previous poster said, bring on 4K.

    If they would broadcast more Live Events in 3D it might have caught on. Broadcasting stuff from years ago just didn't cut it.

    Wonder what 3D in 4K on a 150" monitor would look like . . .

    Just so you know, 4K requires 4x as much bandwidth as 1080p HDTV.
