Post Survey: Most won't buy new TV just to get 3D

About four years ago I bought a new 37? 720p LCD HDTV. It fits in our TV cabinet just fine, and with a coat hanger antenna, pulls in the Saints just great in high definition. (That is not my antenna; he just tells you how to build it.) I really do not have a need for 3-D content. Sure it is cool, but I do not want to go out and buy another TV just to get 3-D. Apparently, I am not alone. What do you think?
According to the international accounting and consulting firm, 83 percent of consumers say that 3D isn't enough to make them want to buy a new television. Moreover, 60 percent of respondents said they simply aren't willing to pay extra for a television with 3D capabilities. Just 21 percent of those surveyed said they would pay 10 percent more for a 3D television over a set that doesn't have the technology.

I certainly would not buy a new TV just for 3D.

I'll probably picking up a new TV next year anyway, but if the price point for 3D is too high I won't touch it.

I sure wouldn't buy one just to have 3D.
