3D is something of a white elephant. Unless you can use "active" glasses to view 3D content (and those glasses are pricey), you're going to be stuck using those passive cardboard jobs. And, those really send colors all out of whack.

Personally, I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for 3D to catch on. Commercially (multi-screen, multi-projector, active glasses), 3D has benefits. But, those commercial set ups are way costly and wouldn't be suitable for home theater use.

I wouldn't make a buy decision based on any claims of 3D capabilities for home theater use.

As a side note, I also picked up one of those "new, in sealed box" Pioneer BDP51 players when Best Buy was closing them out. Mine cost $150. But, as another poster mentioned, this was a $500 BD player at one point. Great, great player, for both picture quality and audio quality.

Firmware updates are slow to come from Pioneer. And, it's one of the slower players out there. But, if you prize picture/audio quality above everything else, if you can find one of the Pioneer players, especially at the prices they're selling for, snag one.
