I could set up a place here for folks to arrange trades, but we can't enforce anything. It would be a trade at your own risk area.
Since it costs about 2/3 the price to buy starter kits rather than individual glasses, I bought three of the starter kits from Panasonic. Now I have three copies of the same two movies.
I am thinking that people are doing this with other TV manufactures and we could do some trading, so we get six unique movies rather than two (or however many starter sets you buy).
Any suggestions for the best on-line place to arrange such trades so you don't lose your movie(s) due to the other person not sending you the one in trade?
Thanks Dan, we're working hard to make Explore3DTV.com THE place to go for just about anything 3D related.
I'm not sure where I want to set up the area for trades. We have forums and groups, but I'm leaning toward making it a group. I'll put some thought into it over the weekend and put something up Monday.
As far as getting more people to find us and participate, anything you can do would be helpful. A good start would be to like us on Facebook, share us with your buds on Twitter, and I'm open to any other suggestions you have. I have links to our social accounts on Facebook, Twitter, and Digg at the very top of the page.
We're still a pretty new site, but with great members like you joining every day, it won't be long until this place is bursting with good discussions and activity!
I have used swap.com (formerly Swaptree) They were originally setup for trading books but they do DVD's, music and games now.
It works like an honor system but you are able to provide feedback, similar to ebay feedback, on the traders. You are responsible for paying the shipping for the item that you are sending so potentially you could be out the item and the shipping cost if you don't receive a trade in return.
I have used it a couple of times and didn't get burned but you never know.
With old books that you don't need your loss would be minor but with an expensive DVD you would have to be willing to take a little chance.
Dan, I don't have any extras to trade, but I'd consider buying them from you at the right price :-) Send me a PM if interested.
Dan i got the Panasonic package also. I sold Ice Age 3D & Coraline 3D on Ebay for $180 for both. But that was back in 09/2010 when blu-ray 3d were alot more scarce and neither movie was released to the public yet. Now I've seen Ice Age selling for the most $70 on Ebay. Carloine will probably only sell for @ $20 because it has already been released to the public and is not considered rare anymore. The real money would come from an extra copy of Avatar 3d which is selling anywhere from $150-400 bucks!
