Looks like I will be in Vegas for the show. Driving up from Phoenix on Wed 1/9. Am I still able to get into the DBS Talk events on Wed?

Thanks,
Steve

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:

I would like to see the glasses free 3D but I still wouldn't buy one. :)

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.

I might be able to make it next year, but my Big Trip™ is well in progress. I have my hotel booked in Sydney's CBD, My car rental booked (Holden Commodore SV6), and the plane tickets will be booked in the next couple weeks. The week-long trip will take me from 15-24 February.

Had fun last year at CES, so I am looking forward to making it out there next year!

Steve, I think you will enjoy it immensely because you get to put a Face with a Name that you have know for awhile and we all get to talk DBS Geek Talk while being served Great Food at The Grande Lux Cafe along with a cold one and voila!!! :D

Everyone has a lot in common with each other even though we are from different walks of Life and from different parts of the country so Bring It On!!! :lol:
