    Samsung and LG are the leaders in TV technology now. Sony's new OLED TVs are supposed to be very good according to reports from CES 2017, but Sony is buying their OLED panels from LG now. Samsung is working on better QLED (quantum dot LED) panels instead of trying to improve its OLED process.

    LG is the only company so far that has a manufacturing process for its OLED panels which produces a sufficient number without defects to be profitable. The manufacturing process for the other types of OLED panels that Sony and Samsung developed themselves yielded too many defective panels.

    LG's 2017 OLED TVs are indeed an improvement over their 2016 OLED TVs, particularly with respect to HDR, but the price for the new OLED models that are in the stores now is outrageous. The least expensive is $3500, and the most expensive set is $8000. LG also has a new line of UHD LED TVs using its new Nano Cell technology to compete with Samsung's 2017 UHD QLED models.

    Thanks for that update, and filling in the blanks.

    (LG also makes refrigerators, washing machines, etc. Most of which I had passed on, when making comparisons and purchase decisions. But it is interesting to see how they've advanced with the TVs -- price considerations aside.)

  4. Yes, you are right, now 4K TV is becoming more and more popular which has replaced the 3D TV role, 3D TV is reducing from the market, also watch 3D in TV is really inconvenient for most users. 3D VR headsets are coming to our slights which takes full use of advanced 3D technology. Also user have multiple 3D VR headsets options, like: HTC Vive, Sony PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, Windows 10 VR (coming soon) and so on.

    But I ask...Do you really think those 3D VR Headsets are more convenient?

I meet some video format problem which effect to watch 3D movie on VR smoothly, you can search some ways online, you must know your VR spec, then choose the right phones to watch. Hope to help you if one day you buy the VR headset to watch 3D movie.

    Two posts in this thread saying almost the same thing?

    Using VR doesn't seem particularly convenient or inexpensive for a nice system. (Cheap cardboard headgear and a cheap smartphone won't satisfy most adults who are used to watching a nice 3D TV.) ...and what are the chances that no users will be troubled by headaches and other sorts of physical discomfort after using VR for a long period of time. What about consumers who wear glasses, especially those over 50? How well is VR going to work for that group.

  7. I really think 3D VR headset is convenient, sometimes i can take the 3D VR like: Google Cardboard, it's so cheap, and i can download the 3D movie to my phone, when i take the subway, i can watch the 3D movie, or i can lying in bed and watch 3D movie on VR headset, some 3D VR can provide user who wear glasses, just like swimming in pool. even though some more advanced 3D VR need the complicated connection, but to me, the common 3D fan, common VR headset is enough, i just pay some money to experience the 3D world.

  8. VR headsets will progress then something else etc., hard to deny it, but what makes me to think of is that this is the first step to cut yourself off the real World, a person becomes really vulnerable to the surroundings, in any sense you can think of.
    I just see the kids (or whomever) completely without any response to have those things on with headphones as well. So far sense of smell is not disturbed, so hopefully not many will burn alive while having those gears on. I feel like if you put that sort of full gear on, you have to be supervised in some sort, simply you become more vulnerable. Its a completely new beast coming up.

    Well, you've probably seen one of those videos of someone tumbling into a fountain in a mall or somewhere else, due to walking while being completely fixated on their phones. (Texting, Pokemon Go, or whatever.) Some have probably gotten killed by now, doing that on urban streets. It would be an extension of that, only more so. (Perhaps this is also partly a weeding out process -- a culling of less intelligent members of the herd ?)

    In that regard, I'm glad to not be of a generation that seems to be more interested in or susceptible to these trivial diversions.

    i like 3D movies on my S4 using a VR headset holder

    ONLY in the safety of my easy chair, would not dare walk around the house, much less out side

    I don't do 'enhanced reality' , strictly a 3d movie while sitting down
