We finally bought some 3D content. (Had the TV since about August.)
Just got done watching it. Since both home 3D and TRON seem to come in for a lot of hate from some, I thought I'd kill two birds with one stone by telling you people you're all horribly, horribly wrong on both counts.
I found setting up the TV and player was a little more involved than expected, but nothing onerous. Once dialed in it was flawless. TV is a Samsung LED/LCD Series 7, last year's model.
I love that movie. It's gorgeous. It's just one big eye-candy-filled music-video with overdone Judaeo-Christian references, but it's a stunning eye-candy-filled music-video with yadda yadda. Actually I connected up a few more dots this time and came away with a little bit more respect for the script than I had previously. I dunno, it's a subjective thing, you like it or you don't. I feel fortunate that I do. There's plenty of other stuff out there to not like; I wanted to like this, did, and still do. Win.
I started watching the movie with a headache and I still have one. It's no better and no worse. The flicker effect was completely absent. The glasses are unnoticeable after about five minutes. There was no eyestrain or weird inverty inside-out nonsense or 'flashing' or any of the rest of the guff you hear about. It was completely comfortable in every respect and I have NO idea what people are on about when griping re this; legit medical reasons obviously excepted.
3D TV is a cool piece of technology that even an idiot like me can figure out by almost literally mashing buttons at random - the room was too dark to read my remote's labelling and I wanted to see just how stupid I'd have to be to really mess it up. Answer: pretty damn stupid. Somewhere around the shoelace-tying threshhold, I'd say. It works brilliantly.
If you haven't given it a chance because you've heard this-or-that about the technology and had a gut reaction of 'errrgh, that's stupid', do yourself a favour - drop your preconceptions and give it an honest, fair chance. Maybe you'll be surprised.
