Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.
Others may see it differently but when I consider the various problems that I have experienced with Sony flat panels, I can not imagine my purchasing yet another Sony panel. This aside, there is always the question of whether the added gadgetry is worth paying for. I think it is not.
One point well worth considering is that the 3D effect that we are being cajoled to purchase requires that one have two functioning eyes in order to perceive the so-called-but-not-truly 3D effect. My wife has only one functioning eye; in real life she has 3D vision but for her the simulated 3D effect is wholly absent and for her, the picture clarity is actually worse.
So when there are devices that a one eyed individual can actually use for 3D, then I will consider paying the 3D "tax".
