So, should I wait for a 8000 or 9000 series TV? The only difference I can tell is the thickness of the TV. Anyone have any insight on this?

Also, has anyone seen specs or pricing for a 3D Blu Ray player?

Are 3D glasses still needed with these new 3D HDTVs and the up coming 3D Blu-ray players?

Yes, 3D active shutter glasses will be required for all displays coming to market. Holographic televisions aren't generally available and stereoscopic 3D without glasses is a pretty lousy technology right now.

Thanks for your response! Wish glasses weren't needed.

You aren't alone on this, but real life 3D is nothing like stereoscopic 3D that we see on television. At a very basic level, there has to be some way to deliver a unique image to each of your eyes, and the only way to reliably do that is by using glasses to block one image at a time.

Non-glasses 3D has been shown with VERY poor results on viewability.

Holographic displays are pretty much a myth right now. I've got no idea how much data a 'true' 3D display would need. Or how much horsepower it would take to run it. Maybe in another 30-50 years.

I'm interested in the ''basic'' 46'' LCD that will ''handle'' 3D for $1700. Going to have to research some specs on this one.

The latest announcement on Holo 3D:

Chinese researchers develop the largest 3D holographic display

If you have a ps3 I heard they are going to have a firmware update to play 3d movies. Wonder if it is all Sony players??

No - just the PS3. As I understand it, 3D BD is going to use a 2X speed BD drive and increase the bit rate from 40 Mbps to 60 Mbps when playing a 3D BD.

All BD players (except the PS3) only have a 1X speed drive.
