It's better on TV. Not perfect, but better.

3D is overrated regardless of platform.

I have a Samsung 3D TV. Can't remember the last time I used the 3D feature. It's cool, but the novelty wears off quickly.

I agree with that. But sometimes I think that the problem is that the content stinks. A lousy movie or show shown in 3D is still lousy.

I'm watching the Chick-Fil-A Bowl being broadcast right now. It's actually not that bad.

They still haven't completely solved the blurriness problem, although it's not terrible. Nor have the fixed the darkening of the image. Again, not terrible. (Not sure if problem from signal, tv, or both.)

The players definitely are in dimensions. You can easily see depth between players closer and farther away from the camera.

Again, though. Seems very novelty-ish. It's definitely different and cool because of that. How long it lasts, who know.

Also, you can't use any GUI features while viewing 3D, they don't align with the double screen.
