For once, I don't think being "only" 1080p is the issue. Nothing in the article seems to suggest it being used as a monitor/computer peripheral. Its for consuming media content. Going higher than 1080p will mostly cause squinty-eyed headaches if most of your content can't scale properly.
if its 1080p 120hz then yea nice , if its 1080p 60hz then to hit 60fps in 3d gaming it will be limited to 720p to get 60hz at 1080p 60hz 3d is limited to 30hz and trust me it just unplayable for most games, give me massive eye strain and head ache. i have an lg 32inc tv (about 6 months old) thats used for pc 3d gaming, its grate at 720p and i dont get eye strain or head ache, i know 720p but in 3d it makes up for it for me it give's WoT massive depth and some games massive 3d stuff coming out the screen, diablo 3 looks cool as fook and i only use TriDef 3D software with HD6850, plus if i want to watch a 3d blu-ray in 3d at 1080p its the dogz nutz let alone how cheap it cost, for the money you cant go wrong for a look into pc 3d gaming.
