Because I was buying a new plasma anyway this spring (and going top of the line) I wound up with a 3D-capable Panasonic and a couple of sets of glasses. I hated the world Cup in 3D and quickly switched to the regular coverage for games I cared about. Ditto for the All-Star game, where they had too few 3D cameras to adequately cover the game, and the announcers were pitching 3D so hard it was like a SNL satire. After a couple of forgettable 3D movies, the glasses went back in their cases and have been gathering dust ever since.

The best thing about 3D BluRays is that they play beautifully in 2D.

We should start a pool on how long it will be before DirecTv drops their 3D channels.


Was it just because you didn't like the content or was it a technical reason that you've stopped using 3D?

I do agree with the comment about 3D coverage not being up to par with the 2D coverage. Having two seperate feeds/crews is exactly what happened when HD first started rolling out, lack of cameras and the D announcing crew. I think we're still in the demo period for 3D and hope in the coming months things will pick up on the content side.

See post My Setup for configuration info.

I have no clue what Cowboys & Aliens is, but I want to see it just because they remain true to their craft using film. It's nice to know that Hollywood still knows what's king. :D

Yeah, I know, I know, digital is great. Tape is cheap, SSD is the ultimate in non-lineararity, all that stuff but you'll never match that perfect natural "something" that film provides.
