    Something I don't understand, I have a 3D DVD (Coraline) that comes with the purple and green glasses.

    HOW is having a 3D blu-ray player, a 3D disc, and a 3D TV, any different than the purple and green (or red and blue) variety? I don't get what the benefits are...

    With a green/purple (or red/blue) movie+cheap cardboard glasses, I can watch the 3D movie using any player and any TV I may own. So what is so special about these "3D" movies that require a 3D player and 3D TV?

    I read everything on that page, it's just discussing the differences between how the two work. I wanted to know the benefit of using one vs. the other.

    The only thing that comes close on that page is

    But that doesn't explain why it's "better" - it just says that it is.
