Recently, I was browsing for the latest technology news and I stumbled across an article that exactly reflected my feelings on 3D TV. Personally, I think the technology is exciting however I’m not convinced that it is something I’d want for my TV lift cabinet. Between the price and the extra gadgets (namely, the glasses), it just doesn’t appeal to me. I’m perfectly happy with my HD TV. Apparently, I am not alone.
The article I’m referring to is on CNET.com and it discusses why people do not want 3D TV. The manufacturers say CNET hasn’t done enough to convince consumers that this is something they should have. However according to CNET, the cost of 3D TVs and having to wear the dreaded glasses is proving to be an unfavorable combination for consumers.
When I watch TV, I want to collapse on the couch, turn on the TV and relax. I might have my laptop on my lap while I simultaneously browse the web. I don’t want to have to put on my 3D glasses to watch my favorite shows. I also like the freedom of going back and forth between my computer and TV. The glasses would complicate my ability to multi-task. Prime example - I often watch TV from my kitchen while cooking or doing dishes and the glasses would interfere. The same concerns I have are shared by many consumers, as is evident in the CNET article.
Do you already have a 3D TV? If so, I would like to hear from you! I’m curious to hear what current 3D TV owners think and if they’re happy with their decision to move on from HD TV. Who knows, I could be persuaded…
