Argus9: "Either Sony’s trying to get more gamers into 3D TV technology, or we’re just not buying it; either way, Sony is sticking to their guns, and Best Buy is offering their 3D TV bundle at the lowest price it’s ever been."
BestBuy is simply trying get rid of the stock since nobody is buying this sh*t
I'd say it's a bit of this and a bit of that. 3D gaming is cool from what I've seen, but it's still a bit rough around the edges. This is really for early-adopters or those who love having the latest tech.
i still don't see 3D as Future.
because 3D is not the future. It's the past that they have just been improving on till the present. The future would be something like holography.
I may have to buy me a second one. Love my 24" 3D display. I use it as a computer monitor, and it's in my game cabinet (See pic). I just need more space. I just built the cabinet last week, so I'll have to put the 2nd monitor elsewhere.
Well... I just did it. Ordered a second. This price is just too good. My wife is gonna kick me in the nuts.
I dont think it will ever NOT be cheaper than ever. it makes sense that it will always be cheaper than ever. if it goes up in price then ill be suprised
I just picked one up as well. Can't pass up such a good deal.
My only grip with it is the size. I want a 3D TV but for my living room and would love a big one at a discount... Oh well, I'm getting a 3D TV with passive shutters later this year anyway. My cousin recently got one and I gotta say I'm impressed, it's actually as good as active shutters in detail, less dark and much cheaper (specially with the glasses, as I gotta pick up at least 4), the only downside I got was the view range a bit more restrict. Also it apparently don't cause as much headaches or sickness as active shutters (not that I personally suffered any in either system).
@ bishop-br I can certainly understand wanting a bigger TV. I have a 42", 40", 32" and now 2x 24". I still have a PS3 and XBOX in the living room hooked to the 42"... great space for motion gaming and gaming with friends. I have my main game rig in my bedroom, where I used to use a 32" display. I thought I'd stick with the 32" display and use the 24" as a computer monitor, but the more I played on the 24", the more I liked it, and now it's where I prefer to play. I feel like I can see everything that is going on better on the 24" display, and my KDR reflects it. I can't say it would have the same results for you, but I like the display enough to buy a second, so that's saying something.
@Bishop-Br: Yeah, it's definitely not a living room TV. As most have said, it's great for a small bedroom / PC monitor setup. It's just barely larger than my PC monitor, at 22".
Cheap 3d Tv; yeah, I'll get that just because it's cheap, a HDTV, and it also does 3D.
VR is the future.
When you can do it without glasses it will sell. Look at 3ds. Btw... if im correct its a monitor not a tv.
instead of lowering the price here is a bright idea how about put it where all the other tvs and monitors are instead of putting it in gaming isle ! Seriously someone somewhere should be fired for that decision. Of course its not going to sell no one is going to go to the gaming isle to look for a tv they go where the tv department is.
I agree with you, but at the same time you could see this as a PS3 accessory, not just a TV. People wouldn't get much use out of Motorstorm Apocalypse if they didn't have a PS3, and I'm not sure how the 3D glasses, or the TV, work in absence of a PS3. Also, SimulView would be wasted on someone who doesn't own a PS3. Plus, the TV doesn't come with a remote. It's definitely a more niche item. Without a PS3, this is just a cheaper, smaller 3D TV.
it doesnt matter what dept these are in. I have seen them in the tv and gaming and yet nobody checks them out. Now in other stores with 3d TV's, the glasses are usually broken. Places like costco and wal-mart just dont have the staff to watch over such things. So when people walk up and se they cant experience the effect, they keep on walking.
It's not a TV though, it's a monitor. You cannot watch tv on this and so putting alongside regular tv's will confuse people and you'll have alot of airy customers.
You can watch TV through it it just has to be through the HDMI cable. As a personal gaming TV, this TV is top notch. I would strongly recommend getting one. The only downside is the reflection off the screen in sunlight.
i already have a 32 1080p samsung, even though its old i dont want ot downgrade to 24.
Cool story, bro. No one said you should buy a 24 inch TV to replace a 32 inch TV.
That was always the main problem with this display, it had to be at least 32" to have wider appeal. No one I know who plays console games uses anything smaller that 42".
I have a 37'' 1080p 200hz LG, which is in the living room. Play PS3 there however this would be great in my bedroom. It would be great for any bedroom to be honest.
Worst piece of [email protected] in the world...do not buy it unless your wiping your a$$ with money.
That's just stupid, money is far too rough, instead I use the money to buy hand knitted alpaca wool toilet "paper" :)
Don't listen to the trolls this is a great deal.
I got it for $250 with another game. Never was as cheap in canada as they say on that website.
Sony - PULSE Wireless Stereo Headset — Elite Edition $149.00 OR PlayStation 3D Display Bundle $169.00 ???????
I disagree. I know several people who have bought it, myself included, I think Sony/BestBuy is just trying to create more demand. It is a nice piece of Tech to have when you have a 3D game with couch co-op and a friend over (which I often do). I honestly just wish it was a bit bigger.
I just bought it for 179.99 for the TV, glasses, MS:A and a HDMI cable. It`s an amazing amazing personal TV, the only downside is the reflection off of the screen in sunlight.
I just got it from Best Buy for $159.99 + $19.99 for the two year agreement. From what I read in reviews the warranty is a must. Some of the screens are borderline lemons out of the box.
dazzrazz is correct. 3D TV's dont translate well to the living room like they do on a gigantic movie screen. i dont like 3d in any format, i think its another gimmick to push to consumers to buy crap they dont need
i recommend this 3D Display to anyone who can use it as a PC monitor and for a second PS3! i got one recently and its a fantastic display!
I might but it and just use it as a small hdtv in my room. lol
if i lived in a dorm room, id get it but that little thing is useless for my living room.. My vita has a bigger screen than that.. Maybe a PS3 super slim, this, & uncharted 3 combo for my desk.. i just dont see myself playing anything beyond 30 mins on something that small.. Wait, can i still use netflix & hulu on my ps3 with this? Its a silly question but u never know, sometimes theres funny catches to things like this..
Your Vita has a bigger screen then that? I don't even...
sarcasm man.. Sarcasm.. That screen is just too damn small.. I have a 47 in & just cant see myself sitting all close to the tv in order to read tx or anything else for that matter... It would be cool for a desk but not a living area
hmmmm i was thinking about buying a new monitor and i just bought a Sony 3D tv but it didn't come with glasses. This kills 2 birds with one stone!
I suggest searching for more reviews and learning about "cross talk" and the limitation of the display (if it can be used as a 3D monitor for the PC too). Then decide. Goodluck with whatever your choice is! May you have no regrets!
I'm not going to be using it for a PC, just console gaming at my desk.
If it dropped to $99 I'd buy it as a PC monitor. Probably wouldn't use the 3-D aspects though, I've also heard that this monitor has some issues and is prone to breaking.
You get a 1080p 240hrz 24 inch monitor with an hdmi 1.4 a game and active shutter glasses. You would buy at $99 lmfao, There is also nothing to support your claim of breaking? I smell a troll.
That is all I'd pay for the monitor. Its not a television and the screen is far too small for any kind of real 3-D aspect. I have a 60 inch LED in my living room, I don't like 3-D glasses, but as a monitor I'd get one at $99. Also, check the feedback on those sets, they tend to black out often and have issues.
it breaks.... so why would you buy it. if it didnt break, they wouldnt have any in stock.
That's why I wouldn't buy one even if it drops more. Every review I've read days out didn't last but a few months At Most. Most break within a month.
Everything can break. Why would you buy anything? Not a stab at you, I'm just not sure the logic applies.
Because not everything is an originally priced $500 24-inch TV with an unacceptably high rate of failure within the first month of purchase. Yes, "everything can break", but expectations of appropriate quality and reliability scale with the pricetag. There is a distinct difference between a several hundred dollar TV typically breaking in a matter of years and a matter of 'weeks', there is a reason the price is less than half what it used to be.. and it isn't a lack of enthusiasm for 3D technology.
Pretty much all of them broke in a short period of time. And Sony didn't recall them. Pretty awful if you ask me.
Seems like a pretty hot deal. Don't really neeeeeed it, but for that price it would be pretty cool to have 3D
3D just didn't take off. Too bad for the companies that invested billions in it.
Just like when you could buy an SDTV or HDTV. That's how 3D is now. When the price get's low enough on 3D panels all TVs will just come with 3D.
Yeah man 3D didnt pay off, thats y companies continue to make 3D Tv's, to lose money :(. /s
If you live in so cal. Frys has wifi Vita for 199.99
I think people are in denial about 3D because they're insecure about having to buy new technology, or they own an xbox. I love 3D. The movies and the games adds a whole new dimension to the gaming (pun intended)
Customary chuckle. :) I love the 3D on my 3DS, it really makes the games much more immersive, and that's not B.S. The developers are really taking this new technology and running wild with it. I do know that some sectors (film for example) are using 3D as a gimmick, and I hope more people get to try it in gaming and see that it really can serve as a great supplement to a game's visual presentation.
Avengers in 3D on my 64 inch is amazing !!! hopefully prices drop for the Tv's and glasses and more people can enjoy it.
The xbox can do 3D though. I was playing you spin 4 just the other day...
The problem? It's only 22 inches
Can't help it... That's what she said
its 24 inches
3D gaming is A LOT better than 2D gaming! People who slate it are normally the ones who can't afford it unfortunately. 3D isn't going away, if it was the latest tvs would be going back to 2D!
Shadow of the Colossus looks sick in 3D, had a blast playing that game all over again.
I've got it. It's awesome, but depends on your setup. I went and got a tv stand for it along with the logitech GT steering wheel, bolts onto the stand perfectly. I sit right on top of the screen while playing all my games so that makes a huge difference, it's only 24" but when I'm that close really doesn't matter, but it's all about the placement. My wife got it for me for Xmas last yr at Bestbuy, by that time it had dropped to $299, at this price ($159) if you can work out the placement, the picture quality in 2d and 3d make it a huge value.
The only problem I have with it is that it lacks VGA and DVI support. >_<. Otherwise I'd buy it.
Another SONY bad product that is why Sony is broke.
seriously the best computer monitor ever. Im using it right now, bought it off of a friend for $100 and it is by far the best computer monitor ever.
When did you buy it? I'd get it but I'm too afraid of having it break in a week or two to be honest.
i bought it in June or July and i haven't had an issue so far.
Hey are you able to use with your computer for 3d
