    No surprise here. All this early 3D business is nothing but a headache, and very literally.

    The new glasses-free sets have a better chance, but still, being unnatural to human eyes, it will take a better level of technology to make 3D widely acceptable...

    Still, it is nice to see in a cinema, on occasion, but for home use it's a no-no.

    Not surprised here, too.
    I'd rather spend more for something else than buy a 3d tv or watch a 3d film/show again.

    (I watched star trek 2: into darkness 3D at an imax theater (part of sm cinema) in southern Philippines.
    I love the superior sound system but not the 3D film and the high price of the movie ticket compared to "normal" films.)

    Hopefully, this is a continuing trend.
