[sync-blog] Vizio debuts “theatre 3D” TVs - Page 2

post #11 of 31
One step closer to 3DTV actually being something people might buy. It still won't take off "for real" until glasses-free sets are the norm, but this is a step in the right direction at least. The very notion of shutter glasses was stillborn, and every set manufacturer CEO who thought otherwise should lost their job for being a complete idiot.

The $3500 price may seem expensive, but that's only slightly more than I paid for my 65" HDTV back in the bleeding edge days. Give it a couple years and this will be down in the current "accepted normal" price ranges. (Which is still too high IMHO, but that's a different argument.)

For gaming, 3D might make more sense and can legitimately be called "not a gimmick". But it's hard to not call 3DTV a gimmick.

Finally! A home polar solution without a dual projector approach. I may still wait for the voxel tvs, but this is pretty cool overall.

Biggest differences: "3DTV"'s majority of them DO NOT accept a 120hz or better input. ALL Nvidia 3d Vision setups MUST have a monitor with a 120hz or better input to work.

The tv's you see with 240hz or 600hz are just tv's that accept a 60hz input and then double the frames. Now yes it's better then a standard 60hz set, but is not a true 120hz or better refresh rate.

@dopey

I did forget you own 3d vision and I apologize, I was more or less addressing the fact that you get headaches using it.

Saw Tron: Legacy in Disney Real3D. Will NEVER trump the original, but I digged it.

However, there were times my head felt like it was going to implode from sensory overload.

I have used the TV 3D and it gives me a localized headache right in the middle of my forehead, I know it's not Nvidia's gift to the world 3D(...lol) but don't think I am missing out on much.

I know if I watch it more I may be Ok with it but since I get the headache in a minute or two then I would rather not use it at all.

Only 1080 at 65", 5ms GTG. NO 'Full HD 3D'? $3700 is just not worth it!

3D is lame, but I like Vizio TVs.

Based on what? 3D tech is a luxury for the consumer. Although still an infant, imo, it provides a pretty cool feature. I'm waiting for them to refine it a bit more, but it's still pretty cool. Not worthless. Maybe HDTV is worthless, because it's a luxury. You can watch any channel or movie on a digital (or analog with converter box) SDTV.

Sorry, but I had to call you on that, there.

3D gets a bad rap, due to '3D' created in post film processing or via the medium it is displayed. To enjoy 3D you also have to have decent eyesight, in both eyes, or it won't give the full effect and you will get headaches.

So far there have been only a handful of movies that have been filmed in 3D (Avatar, Tron, latest Resident Evil). Anything fiimed in 2D and using post-film processing is a facepalm.

When watched on a 50-65" TV, the result is still very blah. Even if you've been to the movie theater and they use RealD it is nowhere near the 3D experience you will get compared to iMAX. My point is, bigger is better. The more screen you can cover your view with the more captivated you will be with 3D.

If one were to invest in a home 3D setup, it would be wise to invest in a projector. You'll save money and enjoy it more, although you do need to have a good layout for a projector (dark room).

Gaming on the other hand, well Nvidia is winning that hand over fist (shame on AMD to have consumers rely on 3rd parties for a solution).

Sooo at this rate, hopefully next year, glasses won't be required at all!
