I watched Avatar in 3d at a cinema that was state of the art with prices to match. Enjoyed the film, but it seemed blurry to me and I ended up with a right headache. I genuinely shun and poo poo all 3d options where possible. Got a friend who says Samsung do a TV that can make any picture 3d. The argument I had with him was massively heated. He swore by it and said it was great. Chuffing clown. So it may sound snobby, but if fools like him think it is great, and it gives me a headache, then I want no part of it.
I went from 10 meg to 20 meg with Virgin due to gaming issues. The service has been flawless, for everything except gaming. Gaming still has its moments of major lag. I don't download much, so why would I need the extra bandwidth? Especially as I resent paying more than £22 for internet per month. If I wanna download, then I can do it overnight. Never fallen foul of their day time shaping. My needs may change as the kids get older though. I would love iplayer etc upstairs, just don't have the kit that will run it.
it isn't just the Xbox Live. YouTube is often poor too. Bit I can avoid that. The killer is the Xbox connection which is shocking at times. I have called to complain, but they have been poor at coming back to me. Come on Plusnet, deliver me some cable services.
