CNET Top 5
Reactions to 3DTVThe people have spoken.
3D TV is a funny thing � we can�t show it to you on regular TV or on the web. You need 3D to see 3D and by then, you�ve already fallen for it. I�m B.C. with a Top 5 that could help the rest of is � Top 5 reactions consumers have after watching some 3D TV. This is according to Campaigners Research, which talked to almost 1,800 people after they has some experience with 3D on TV. Reaction #5, 2.4%: No reaction. OK, that�s odd, but a fact of life in research. Reaction #4, 7.4% said they HATED it. Not blase. HATE. They express �NO interest in buying 3D TV for their home�. OK, we�ll leave you alone. With your drink. And your scowl. Reaction #3, reported by 16.3% of folks in this study was LOVE it. Gotta� have it. Where do I sign up to get nausea and headaches. OK, I added that part. But they did agree that �they felt that were part of what was on screen.� Reaction #2, reported by a big 35.9% was �Not sure�. �Not sold on the 3D concept yet, still too new.� I know folks who say that about that whole internet thing. They mostly still carry Motorola Razr�s and don�t see the point of an need an iPod. CD�s are fine. Before we get to the #1 reaction to 3D TV, here�s the #1 thing in its way. Money. The same study found that concerns about sheer cost and the need to buy new or more gear put off a much larger percentage of people than concerns like headaches, nausea, nothing much to watch or worry about picture quality. It�s all about the money in this economy. OK, now, the #1 most popular reaction people had to 3D TV, reported by 38% of people, was �like it�. They agreed it would be nice to have, but not a priority. Hmph. Not what TV makers want to hear as we head into the jaws of the holiday buying season. You need some convincing about 3D TV?
