Case Study: Results from Three Weeks with 3-D TV

By Erik Sofge, WSJ: When my three weeks are up, I realize that, other than gaming, I’ve given up on 3-D. Why bother, when this TV displays 2-D programming so well?

In some ways, 3-D’s apologists are right, that it’s reminiscent of HD — back when hi-def content consisted solely of a tiny selection of movies on disc and a handful of channels running whale documentaries. But HD was and is a universal upgrade — it makes everything look sharper and more detailed without stipulating where you sit or what you wear.

3-D, on the other hand, begs everyone, the creators of content as well as its consumers, to adapt to a technology that’s not necessarily superior. It’s just more eccentric.
