DisplaySearch: 3D TVs are Getting Crazy Popular



+ Add a Comment


Ever hear the saying, "The statistic is accurate, but it is not true"? It refers to when someone hands out a misleading statistic to make a false point. Shipments don't mean a damned thing and don't reflect "popularity". I don't know one person of anyone in my circle who gives a damn about 3DTV. It is and always will be retarded.



Shipments mean nothing. How many purchases have there been? 


Enough with the Captcha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



3D is such a non-issue.  It is a passing fad just as it was in the 80's.  The TV manufacturers are struggle to ksell TV in the volume that they have in the past but the market is flooded and the demand will be dropping, if it hasn't already.  So they need some other new hook.  Internet capable TVs were not doing it, so lets sell them "3D" TVs and some expensive active glasses.




Btw, the captcha AND copying a string is a really lame way to keep the bots out.  Again, the people following the rules are the ones that suffer.



First adopters are silly.  There's not enough 3D content around to justify the cost of a 3D TV.  And by the time there is enough content around, the 3D TV you bought 3 years ago will be very obsolete.  First let's secure the death of BluRay with digital distribution.  Then we can worry about 3D.

And honestly, I still think 3D is a gimmick.  And TVs that require special glasses are stupid.  No thanks.

I agree, I wouldn't want to have to put on special glasses every time I wanted to watch TV.
