This is going to be a novice question, but for 3D TV's, can you opt out of the 3D setting and just use it in 2D? 3D TV prices are dropping significantly now and I know this is a great TV but have no interest in the 3D technology. It seems like I could just pull the trigger on a cheaper 3D TV but never use the 3D...?
You can use the TV in 2D mode only, if you want. The only content that really requires 3D is... 3D content (i.e 3D Blu-Ray Discs).
