We'll be there, might run into some of you on the floor, I'm staying at the Trop from Monday thru Friday... I met Doug and Al (former mods here) a few years ago.

I'm sorry to say but I will be missing CES again in 2013..

Nothing was falling in to place when it came time to register so I decided to forgo the registration process this year & give up my reservations. As luck would have it, my dad informed us just before Thanksgiving that he was coming out for the holiday & our daughters 10th birthday but it was simply to late at that point.

Yeah....I think this is the 2nd or 3rd time things didn't work out. A shame, but stuff happens. Sorry you'll miss it.

Yes, this is the Third Time you have had to cancel out of going to the CES Convention so it seems like it must not be in your Destiny to go or you have too many other people in your life controlling your Destiny!!! :lol:

Thanks,

For those of you that are going - I just read an article where Vizio is going to be displaying a 55" glasses-free 3D HDTV at the show - I would like to hear opinions on how well the display works (lighting / angles / etc) especially if anyone has a current 3D HDTV to compare it to.

Thanks,

Steve

Steve-

I'll be sure to take a look. But I may be biased: I've already concluded that 3D TV has a way to go before it's of interest to me. But, with some effort, I can be open minded and maybe even fair....:lol:

Steve, I will be looking into that along with Laxguy who will probably be with us as I am looking at buying a 3D HDTV this year.

The ones we viewed last year were only Good if you stood in a predesignated viewing angle and didn't move much.

And even then the PQ wasn't as Good as the one with Active Glasses which I am not fond of but I will be using it just for Niche Programs such as Football or Golf or a 3D Movie.

We'll definitely be checking out all of the 3D Products so we will keep you and others informed of what we see and how we feel about them.

With budget concerns on the horizon, I was unable to make it on the team going to CES this year. Thought it was in the bag for sure with some of my recent activities. Oh well, really looked forward to meeting some of you.

Maybe next year.
