Mike. Are you not 3D capable yet? $5 more for the 3D version is a steal. Even when I didn't have a 3d set! I always bought the 3D combos as they were always the best bargain. Just curious.
I have a 3-D capable display...a 3-D capable Blu player...and I'm pretty sure my receiver passes through 3-D material.
So, I'm all set.
I'm just not interested in having 3-D in my home. I've seen a couple of 3-D films at the theater and it has been impressive. The final Harry Potter film in IMAX 3-D was spectacular. The depth made the image really something to behold. I'm just not interested, though, in dealing with it at home (the glasses, the darkness, etc.)
I've been able to make some major improvements to my HT in the past year or so and am really enjoying things the way they are.
