3.0 out of 5 stars Good Provider, unclear advertising of product by amazon., 16 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Polar Express (3D Edition) (2 Dvd) (DVD)
Hi I am not critical of the provider of the DVD who were professional and prompt in their service. But I assumed from Amazons description it was a 3D DVD which could be played on a normal 3d TV using standard 3D glasses (I typed in 3D DVDs on Amazon). When it arrived the information was in Italian and 4 pairs of the cardboard red and green glasses (I have not seen since the 1960s) were provided. even with these glasses my granchildren cannot view in 3D on our 3D TV. So it was more the clarity of advertising by Amazon than the vendor. I am disapointed although luckily it came with a 2D copy which we will view.
Not Amazons normal standard.
regards

What did you expect? There is no such thing as a true 3D DVD. It will always be anamorphic i.e. red & Green glasses.
You should have bought the 3D Blu-ray (if you have the equipment).

You're correct, although to be accurate there WAS a 3D DVD system some years ago, that used shuttered LCD glasses, but it was before LCD TVs had taken off, and only worked on CRT sets!

Nowhere in the ad does it mention the words 'anaglyph' or 'red-green' specs. A bit misleading, giving the impression that it would work on a 3D TV.

You are missing the point. He has a 3D TV, and bought what he thought was a regular 3D version of the film. So he obviously had some way to play it?

I too, made the same mistake, though the low price was a big clue. I have a 3D TV and PS3. But the advert should have stated 'Anaglyph 3D'. I didn't expect the movie in this format, as it is so out of date!

I'll be giving the discs to my daughter, so they can watch the 2D version as a family.

Still stand by my post as it was a DVD he ordered, if he has a 3D TV and the equipment to play it, he should have realised that you need a 3D Bluray for true 3D not DVD. He said "I typed in 3D DVDs on Amazon", first big mistake. Should have searched for 3D Bluray. Even then with this title you need to careful as there are still some old "red and green glasses" Bluray copies out there. Still, we all make mistakes.
