I don't know about that. I haven't seen as many 3D models for the new 2012 model year. There were a lot more during the last model year though. To me if there isn't as many 3D models this year, it seems to me that 3D TV is dying a slow death.3D isn't going away any time soon.
It's becoming a commodity, just another bullet point, feature. I remember one year when I bought a progressive scan DVD play and paid a decent premium, by the following christmas season, progressive scan was standard in even the $29.99 units. 3D is just about at that point in it's cycle.On the 5:00 news last night they talked about how, nationally, 3D tv prices have dropped 30% since the first of the year due to demand.
It's neither one. I think it will be around, especially in theatres as long as folks pay the ticket premium, but without major technology advance will be a more of niche (maybe a sizable one) player at home.This seems like one of those Internet memes. Any thread on satelliteguys with a title containing "3D" will eventually morph into a bash-fest between the folks saying "3D is the greatest thing since sliced bread" and those saying "3D is a fad, it can't die quick enough"
I sell TVs, belive me, there are more 3D models now than last year. 3D is available in more models and prices have come down. There are going to be cases where you find the TV you like the best and it's just going to happen to have 3D capabilities. People are going to be buying 3D whether they plan on using it or not.On the 5:00 news last night they talked about how, nationally, 3D tv prices have dropped 30% since the first of the year due to demand.
