I would invest in this but to not have 3D when 3D's will be become common over the next 2-3 years is a minus. 3D on a 80inch would be sick

I disagree. I have had a 632U for ~1 year. 3D in its present state has been around for 3+ years, Today, the bulk of the 3D offerings available are animated BluRay movies. I checked carefully when I bought my 80" Sharp, and I concluded then that 3D would either never catch on or would do so at a glacial pace. I see nothing coming in the future to change this situation.

I still find it funny to ask anyone who owns a 3D set, "What was the last thing you watched in 3D" (while preparing for either a scowl, a grimace or a just a lie)

EricH8106 12-20-2012 11:29 AM

I just got a 70" Vizio during that BF deal and it's a little small for the room. Contemplating this one, but I can basically buy 2 70" for the price...

3D is a gimmick, it'll be gone shortly... just like the previous 400 attempts at making 3D media.
my tv has been "3D capable" since 07 when I bought the tv, way before any of these stupid 3D LCD tvs hit mainstream. you know how many 3D movies i've watched on it? 0, cause the last thing i want to do is wear some stupid glasses and watch a movie or play a video game...

Span the wall with both sets then. Remove he bezel from each set on the corresponding sides an mount flush to each other and then get a signal splitter between the 2 sets to display 1 image.

in the last 2 years of having a 3d set, i watched one 3d movie and that was because blockbuster's version of netflix had the last harry potter in 3d or you had to wait 2-3 weeks for the regular version.

3d will never be "big" in the next 10 years

Is this some kind of sick joke? I have a 55" Panasonic 3D Plasma and I have yet to watch the 3D. The 3D fad has passed, I dont think you should worry about programming that will only be available in 3D. 2D is here to stay, I promise you that.

frankqfrank 12-20-2012 12:10 PM

in 1997 3D was going to be everywhere is 2-3 years
in 2002 3D was going to be everywhere in 2-3 years
in 2007 3D was going to be everywhere in 2-3 years
Good to know that in 2012, 3D is still going to be everywhere in 2-3 years

This is not an investment.
But I enjoy 3d as well and look forward to having on a bigger tv than my current now-small 55. 80 would be nice, and these will be cheap soon enough.

irontrain 12-20-2012 12:13 PM

I didn't like 3D in the 50's, 60's, 70's 80's or now. Unless they can find a way to watch 3D without those stupid glasses 3D will never catch on.

triwood 12-20-2012 12:15 PM

For whatever it's worth, I heard a BrandsMart radio ad yesterday stating they had a "Sharp 80" LED HDTV for $3498"... in-store only.

Remove the bezel on a TV? How does one do that, with a rip saw? Sounds...dangerous, potentially lethal to the TVs. I've never heard of this before.

ETA: Google is my friend, but I'm not doing that to my TVs. Maybe I'll try on one of your first, for practice.

lulubboy 12-20-2012 12:20 PM

I might jump on this. been waiting for a deal on 80" now sharp came out with the 90". yeah 3d was a fad. who the hecks like to watch movies with glasses? if they don't have to. 3d market fell bad within last 3-4 yrs.

Espn 3d is fun needs more content however, most family nights my kid picks a 3d movie or we stream a 3D kid's title. If you don't have kids it's certainly more of a niche product, you need to be an enthusiast in that case.

At this point if I am dropping 2500 on a TV it needs all the streaming & smart apps (Amazon as well), built in wifi and 3D.

I really like the Quattron feature and the Aquos line- that 70inch with 3D is on my want list.

snak3y3z1001 12-20-2012 12:31 PM

Why not just go projector if you're going go that big? Alot cheaper to invest in a projector and screen/DIY screen.

juanh 12-20-2012 12:34 PM

NO 3D = No deal for me, especially when the 3D version goes for around $4,200.

Not necessarily. My projector cost $5k and the screen cost $3k. So that depends what quality your purchasing.
Sure you can buy a projector and a DIY screen for $3500. But its surely not going to be as good of a picture and a lot more work then just throwing up a TV.

deymayor 12-20-2012 12:50 PM

why buy this when you can get a 120" using a projector for about $3K?

Sultanofdeals 12-20-2012 12:53 PM

I saw Dredd in theaters, i thought the 3d did make the movie better. 3D is not a deal breaker but as other people said it is a nice option to break out once a month

ahmed 12-20-2012 12:55 PM

Not sure why all the hate for 3d. I own over 100 3d movies and there are about 40 more scheduled for 2013.

Benq w7000 for ~$1600 will be more than bright enough with a small screen size such as 80" I have it with a 130" / 1.0 gain screen and it is still fairly bright. With a projector however, you have to worry about it getting dimmer / buying bulbs etc. I wouldn't use it for everyday tv watching. I use it just for movies.

it's a heck of a lot easier, and better, to turn on a TV for casual viewing.

for movie night in my media room/basement, then yeah, a projector would be better.

Actually this is not true. You fail to factor in that the average projector only gets about 2000 hours on a lamp before needing replacing versus an LCD/LED/PLASMA that can get well over 100000 hours before seeing any diminishing picture quality. Never mind the cost of installing one mounted in the ceiling along with a screen and throw in the cost to motorize it all and the cost grows even higher.

It may be bright enough but the picture quality of the HDTV television will be better than the projector...with or without having light in the room (natural or artificial).

Judge Dredd 3D was the best 3D movie I've ever seen. I bought a 3D TV honestly just for the release of this movie in January. Prior to this movie, I HATED 3D movies.

JosephP7463 12-20-2012 02:34 PM

The 3d topic has me wondering... Are 3d tv's able to convert (or upscale) almost anything to 3d (blue ray, video games, dvds etc)? or does it have to be a 3d source?

I offered someone $600 for a one month old lg 55" 3d LED and he said he would take it. I am thinking about waiting because I dont need a new tv right now, I just want one :)

http://www.walmart.com/ip/LG-55LM...m/21693006

So my questions is.. do some of these 3d tv's (this one inparticular) upscale to 3d?... if so how bad is the quality compared to the real 3d source?

supermanava 12-20-2012 02:42 PM

3D is a fad that is hopefully going to die soon.

4K will be the next thing to actually care about.

btw, if you really want to watch that stuff on a HD panel, then at least get 3D.:D

I am 13' back from my TV, which is currently a 55". It all depends on viewing distance. 55" looks small, an 80" would be about the right size for my setup.

Amazon sellers have been floating the newer version of this (with the 3D) for $4,550 to $4,900. Wondering if the only difference is the 3D? Would be nice coupled with that Onkyo 809 receiver, some Energy Take 5's... yummy Christmas Cheer!

What do you mean upscale to 3d? If the source is not 3D, no TV can convert them to 3D. This is not like a DVD being upscaled to 1080p by certain players.

Bingo, this is into Sony HW50 and Epson 5020 territory. You could have a motorized 120-200" screen and much more flexibility than a rigid, fragile TV, should you want to change your setup down the road. Anyone considering this should find a high end home theater store and see for themselves. :thumbup:

Not true. LG (and some other) 3D tvs can convert 2D content to 3D using essentially the same process that non-3D filmed movies are converted in post. It works surprisingly well (i.e. not completely awful).
