Toshiba glasses-free and being broke , both available in 3D

Toshiba recently announced a 55-inch glasses-free 3D TV called Regza 55X3 which will be available in December 2011 in Japan.  The TV will be able to show 2D resolution at a mind-boggling 3,840 x 2,160 resolution using two CEVO image processors. Now I’m still at awe when I see my 1920 x 1080 resolution on my LG LW9800 and yet this TV has double the amount?? A big waste of money; only for the purest TV enthusiast indeed, especially when priced at a whopping $10,000. And with the highest percentage of TVs purchased by consumers being  21-34 aged males, I highly doubt many have 10 grand saved up at all, and yet for a TV.  Now lets take a look at the stats on paper:
Regza 55X3

3840 x 2160 resolution in 2D
1280 x 720 resolution in 3D ( My LG LW9800 is 1080p in 3D)
120 hz rating (Mine is 480hz)
No glasses required
 Price $10,000 est.

Sorry to say, I’m not impressed in the least bit. 720p in 3D? That’s a lower resolution in 3D than a LW9800 47 inch model which you can get for under $3000.  Usually, when something totally new is released, consumers have the obligation to pay a premium for the new technology. With that being said, as with all new techs, it isn’t the best possible grade. 3D TV has been around for quite some time now and the ONLY thing this TV boasts besides a heavy price tag is the “glasses-free” 3D feature which I would gladly omit from my TV if it had a $10,000 price tag. My LG cinema 3D glasses weigh 14 grams, that’s next to nothing.  Toshiba may deserve some credit for opening the door to the future for glasses-free 3D TV, but with current TV technology being so great and this being just a tip-toe ahead, I’ll wait.
