It is a gimmick, why the hell can't you understand?
It gives me headache, the quality is terrible, etc.

What really grinds my gears is that every good tv is 3d. That means i have to pay for something i'll never use. I have 4 3d tvs in my house and i always watch 2d stuff.

Then it's a gimmick for you, fine. For other people, it's a nice feature. Watching the London Olympics in 3D was a very cool experience.

It would really need glasses-free technology to reach the mainstream though.

Better resolution always matters.

3D is a a gimmick because TV is meant to be flat.
