It was clear to me after watching the sole 3D preview (Pirates # Whatever: The Quest for Cash) and then taking in the movie that there are proper uses of 3D and excessively gratuitous uses of 3D.
I don't know the 3D glasses tech at IMAX houses, but there was some definite eyestrain as the movie progressed and T:L didn't use 3D for the usual "throw a spear at the audience" cheap crap (unlike the Pirates trailer).
Right, right, but nobody was afraid to use a computer, watch TV or play video games on a CRT because of burn-in, so why the fear with plasma?just brew it! wrote:Vrock wrote:It's not much different than a CRT, really, and we used those for 70 years.
...and CRTs could suffer from pretty significant burn-in issues if static elements were continuously displayed.
Early plasmas had some issues. What's in stores now is like the 13th generation. I've seen more CRT RPTVs and monitors in use with burn in than I have plasmas.bthylafh wrote:Maybe plasmas are more susceptible to burn-in. I don't believe any CRT monitors were vulnerable to burn-in at least since the mid '90s if not earlier, which must have been from getting better phosphors.

Open your mind. You've already made your purchase, but if you're looking for another Blu-ray player then consider the PS3. I bought a launch 20gb model (which has since failed, but whatever) for $500 with the intent to only watch Blu-ray with it, and became a console convert. In addition to the tons of entertaining games, the media capabilities of the machine are quite useful. Even if you don't play a single game on it, you're still getting one of the fastest, most full-featured, and best supported BD players on the market.Captain Ned wrote:Gaming is for computers with mice & keyboards.
