DD11 doesn't like 3D movies. She says she likes to relax at the movies and having things jump out at her isn't relaxing.

I'm not a big fan of them either. I usually end up with a bad headache.

My husband and DS15 love them.

DH and I love the 3D movies. We don't own a 3D TV so I am not sure if we would like it or not.

Toshiba is releasing (or maybe have already) one in Japan.

HUGE 20" screen for the low, low price of $2,900.

But for $2900.00 i would consider it. I looked at best buy and wow there a lot of money and choices.It cost as much to buy 5 pair of glasses for it as my last tv cost me. CraZY,. They are nice though maybe santa next year will bring me one.

TV makers are trying to work on 3D TV's that don't require the glasses to be $200 a piece and more like the basic ones you get in the theater.

I'm interested in what this Toshiba one looks like.

3 d tv glasses

That's great if they come out with ones that do not need the glasses. I can not believe what the glasses cost and like i said it will be like the remote we will lose them.I may wait a little longer before making a choice and hopefully they will come out with the ones without the glasses soon.

We have one. My DBF is an audiophile and really into picture quality. He is also that guy that wants the gadget as soon as it comes out. I personally did think much of it but I wanted a WOW gift for him this Christmas.

Now that we have it I love, love, LOVE it. It is so crystal clear. Just the regular picture is outstanding and even me and my limited knowledge of picture quality can appreciate it. I really enjoy it. We watched my favorite movie Out of Africa in blu ray 2D simulation with the surround sound. I almost cried it was so beautiful.

The 3D movies do NOT have things jumping out at you. It's not like a 3D movie at Disney. It's a 3D picture very lifelike. You feel like you are in the show. You feel like you can touch it.

The TV also offers 2D simulation. This is for regular picture, things that are not specifically 3D. Take your favorite movie and make it sharper than you could ever imagine. I think the best way to appreciate this is to see 2 TVs side by side at a store. You can see the difference in the picture.

The glasses were expensive, I think 129.00. Two pairs came with the TV (it was a holiday bonus, we also got 4 movies) and we bought one extra pair for my DD. They are comfortable to wear and very high quality. I wear sunglasses almost constantly when I am outside so I am used to wearing glasses. I am not sure how they would work with a person that normally wears glasses.

I know it's not for everyone but for my family it was a great purchase. It kind of amped up Family Movie Night!

One of the free movies we got was the Michael Jackson, I can't wait to watch him perform with that kind of clarity!

You don't have to buy the glasses up-front. You can just by the television now, ready to work with 3D a year or two or three from now, and then buy the glasses later.

I know that VIZIO is going to be selling a few models later this year that work with the "theater" glasses. No clue on what pricing is going to be though.

HERE is what the Toshiba looks like.
