Thumbs up

Bah humbug ... Ended up ordering parts to build him a 3D capable
PC and a 3D (LG) PC monitor to go with it, didn't 'go crazy' though...
(Probably all in all cost about 75 more to make sure it was going to run true 3D)

Had a look at some 3D TV's today, didn't like the active shutter type
at all, flickery and cumbersome. The passive ones on the other hand,
(particularly the LG Cinema 3D ones) seemed very good and the 3D effect
remained visible even on wide viewing angles. Got my eye on a snazzy
one with internet TV / USB / DLNA etc. Not really feeling as confident
as I was with the PC though, bit more of a price difference in the TV's.

Maybe it wouldn't be bad idea to wait a while, even just January sales!

I only went to an HD LCD this year (after my beloved and oh so cheap Sony Trinitron finally bit the dust) so I reckon 3D can wait a few years now. Three things concern me about the current state of 3D. The first is they try this every 30 years so I'd want to see it stick around a little longer. Second it's still so 'gimmicky' with visuals trumping content for the most part while people figure out if it's worth it. Third, the way technology is going anything cutting edge I buy today is going to be crap in a couple of years. I'd hate to drop a grand on a big 3D TV and glasses only to find out I was the only berk sat there with glasses the year after.

Reminds me the expected lifespan of those Sony Trinitron CRT tubes was something like 16 years minimum, I had to replace my first plasma TV after two...

I'm pretty sure the competition is at the same point as the place I work at is. So I'd say wait at least a year before putting out hard earned money on a 3d monitor.

As I wouldn't buy one at their current states. ( not that I have to pay.. but yeah you get it)
