I must admit that navigating the scam is difficult - even for the technically proficient; but if you do your homework, you can get 3D pretty cheap. My 61" LED DLP was already 3D ready - I bought four glasses in a set for sale, and a Panasonic low end BD 3D player, and I can attest that this medium is very entertaining. I didn't notice poor coloring, and very few artifacts in the movies I watch. I only buy true 3D movies - not 2D converted films. It would be silly to do that, when their is software to do that in you PC already. You can watch any movie converted to 3D with some of the better player software now. I've never done it, so I can't witness whether it is worth it or not. I would think it would be a good conversation piece, none-the-less!
For those who are having problems matching their equipment in planning for 3D conversion go to TRU3D to research your choices. This will allay a LOT of the headaches in this difficult environment. I don't necessarily advocate any site for ordering the actual equipment, it is just that it is next to impossible trying to find the proper equation for these devices. I'm not an advertiser, and have absolutely no association with any industry what-so-ever. I'm just a happy camper with my old settup. You can get much better products now. And WAY CHEAPER TOO!!
It doesn't hurt to swing by Consumer Reports to read the latest test articles for 3D equipment either; they are a little behind, but can still provide insight into your plans.
(edited) Apparently TRU3D has been either bought out by Samsung or the store has thrown in their lot with them, as they no longer offer full information in mixing and matching various brands. It is a sad developement, because I was having a terrible time with this, until I learned from that original site how all this tech works. Going to forums just didn't do the trick, but apparently that will be the only choice now - good luck with that! Consumer Reports can help with some of this, but was still lacking information the last I checked - which was many months ago.
