I think the debate is over a couple of things. The new poster was talking about how much they love 3D. Other posts were talking about the likelihood of the technology becoming the next bluray/DVD/VHS/<insert successful technology here>.

Here is my perspective on the technology:
My informal poll has 2 out of 3 people preferring a 3D picture over a 2D picture. There is definitely a market there, but it should be noted that 1 out of 3 actually prefer the 2D picture. Even if the technology and content were given to them for free, they would still choose to watch the 2D image. This is different from previous technologies where the naysayers might say they couldn't tell the difference, or the improvement was not worth the cost. For the 2D supporters, they will avoid 3D whenever possible. Based on this sizable group, I find it difficult to predict whether 3D will succeed and whether it will be a niche market, or totally replace the competition. There are still 2 3D supporters for every 1 2D supporter. Maybe the 2D supporters will be pushed into supporting 3D, or maybe 3D technology can be improved to overcome the objections of the 2D crowd (eyestrain, dimness, color clarity, etc).

One final comment. It isn't going to cost $1k more to include 3D technology in TVs for much longer. The early adopters won't care about the price, and already have a sound system. By the time it is marketed to Joe-6Pack, I expect the price for 3D to add less than $100 per TV and glasses to sell for about $10-$20 each.

I think the 3D television will appear in few years, but i don't think its will be a good investment; only if they bring something more than amazing.

I don't know about his credibility, but i agree with the fact that 3D probably won't be a worldwide hit. There will be many people that won't have access to it, in the 3rd world(and not only) and the boom of the 3D already doesn't produce the same effect on people like first time when it came out.
