*crickets*

Great news for anyone in the market for a new set, but this doesn't really change much.

If upgrading from SD, absolutely, go for a nice 3d setup. Those of us who've already upgraded will be shopping around for a new set around what...2012?

I'd actually like to hear about any upcoming 3d projectors myself...haven't made that jump yet, so that could be my 1st step into 3d =)

I sat in a 10 min Panny demo at the Dallas Auto Show this weekend. They mentioned all this but also that only one pair of 3D glasses will be included with the TV. Does that make any sense?

2500 isn't expensive? they must live in a fancy free imaginary land of happy. lol

i'll stick to my regular LCD tv thanks, 3D was a gimmick in theaters so i dont need it at home. and seriously, regarding people who still have SD televisions, why pay an extra 1500 for a feature you wont use as much? just stick to a regular LCD/LED/Plasma tv and save your money.

It doesn't make sense, but that is better than the samsung 7000 series, no 3d glasses included.

I couldn't agree with you more. I can't believe how badly Sony is trying to jam this down everyone's throats.

What I want to know is this: if I buy Samsung's TV and their glasses, would I be able to use them on a Sony TV as well?

Most likely not. Different manufacturers will use different methods for achieving 3-D. The glasses will probably not be compatible between brands.

Should that be true, then I'm calling it now: 3D in home theater setups will die. If I can't take glasses from my set over to a friend's house and watch something there with them, then what's the point?

LOL - tell your friend to buy the same 3DTV as you have or you buy the same one he has - problem solved
