PS 3D Display

6 replies 233 views Edited Nov 13, 2012

So there is a $160 3D Playstation 3D Display at a Sony store and I want to know, is it worth it? My current T.V. is an older T.V., but still flat, with a glass screen, 26". I need to know if this purchase is good. I play in a reasonably sized basement, it can fit a pool table, bar, darts, and a corner for the current T.V. Will this display be an improvement, or will it break in 3 months, or have dead pixels out of the box, or just not  work, or turn off randomly? So, is it good?

I'm guessing you mean this one? :

But it doesn't seem to be available from the Sony store online:

It has gotten poor reviews, but it was also overpriced at launch.  I don't own one but I heard that there were common errors with it.  At $160 it might be tempting, depending on what else is bundled with it.  If that's what you mean, search the forums as there are plenty of threads about it and its problems.

I was at Best Buy yesterday, contemplating on buying the PS Move racing wheel for LittleBigPlanet Karting and Gran Turismo 5, when I saw they stocked up with dozens of those displays for $180. It's so tempting.

Only issue I know of is the screen not working, but that has to do with connecting it to the PC and going into screen saver mode. That's when it gets stuck. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. :/

The PS3 3D Display has been out for a year now, by this time they should have made several improvments compared to the lauch version.

 

I have a PS3 3D Display (have had mine since launch) & I have had no issues with it at all.

FYI there is a rumor that Best Buy will be selling these displays for $100 on Black Friday. It is an unadvertised special.

I just might have to pick one up at that price...

Just picked one up for $100 at BestBuy.com, they are all sold out now. I am sure that the Best Buy stores will have them in stock when they open up tonight...

why don't you pick one at amazon.com instead, certainly if price is not your problem as it 's more expensive than BestBuy guys. I love this LCD because it is cheapest 3D display.
