Imho it's was pretty much dead out of the gate, or at least gasping for air.
I have a pile of stuff that pushes out squiggly waveforms from smaller squiggly waveforms that sometimes come from 1's and 0's.
It's wonderful to behold as long as you don't let the magic smoke out.

Life is short! Enjoy the music while it plays, when it stops, there might be a chair for you...or  maybe not.

I never even used the 3D glasses once that came with my Samsung TV.

A 3D concert movie like Kylie is a lot different from 2D. Really felt as though you were at an actual concert. Action movies like resident evil also benefit from 3D. Haiz..

Very disappointing news.
Tempted to jump in to purchase one of the LG 4K/3D TV with Dolby Vision now. But I just got my 3D TV two years ago.

It is the discomfort of watching 3D that causes it to fail.

Not surprised it is dead. Not enough content (most regular folks do not buy blu rays, let alone 3D blu rays), and most people only use their 3D feature once or twice soon after they purchase the TV and never use it again.

Curved screen another "feature" that will go away soon I think. Many people I know do not like curved screens as it looks funny on the wall.

Somehow I hardly ever use it, but I still feel sad if they take it away. :D
I guess we take it for granted. It is one of those features which you still want to have in your pocket, just in case there is 1-2 movies (the rare occasion) where you do want to turn it on.

Agree with congster, especially when the clip-on passive glasses are so comfortable to use with my LG oled tv

This thread made me go back and re-read what I wrote in 2011 about 3D. http://www.louco73.com/2011/06/why-consumer-3d/

Perhaps I should write another one on curved screens! I agree that they are probably the next fad to go, but perhaps have a place for monitors?

Stay away, it gives a bow effect.

I for one have enjoyed watching 3D movies on my LG. The inconvenience of wearing the 3D glass was well compensated by the 3D effect. Luckily at least LG's 3D glasses are the very light type so they weren't that bad. The scene towards the end of Max Mad: Fury Road where the wheel came flying out had me ducking my head down!

As for curved screens, i don't see any problem with it. In fact now when i look at straight screens, i prefer my curved one - the last 20% of the both ends of the straight TV becomes like peripheral vision to me. But of course those who have always been watching straight tv won't feel this way. The brain has a wonderful ability to adjust itself.

There's a new hope. PlayStation VR will support 3D Blu-rays in an upcoming patch. This is a great alternative once my current 3D TV is busted.

Now to figure where to get the VR set.

Either your TV is not big or you are sitting very close to the screen, I am sitting about 4m and viewing a curved screen, it had perspective distortion, the edges are closer than the center and if you view it in true theater environment with all lights off you can perceive a slight bow shape, also curved screen looks smaller compared to a flat screen.
