So I just brought a Samsung D490 3D TV I have then spent out on a set of glasses and then found out you need a swanky 3D HDMI lead, I was told to get one of these to use the PS3 as the 3D DVD player, what I'd like to know is: my tv converts 2D-3D but it's not amazing it doesn't have the 'out of screen/pop out' affect but I guess thats to be expected, I would like to expirience this affect/feature and not having the expensive sky 3D channels doesn't allow me to do so, does a PS3 support this kind of 3D?
Reason I ask is I was looking on google about PS3 3D and on Yahoo questions somebody had commented that it doesn't look that great as it doesn't have this kind of affect.
Thanks in advance.

3D Blu-ray Works Fine. Rent them, If you can't buy. Best 3D is from Computer generated 3D film, a lot of live action 3D films are Post filming 3D effect work done on computers buy humans.
3D DVD never had one due to the Size of DVD-R you don't get much of a good quality film on to one DVD-R
3D film files do work but you need to transfer them manualy over Media server As most are to big for USB2 Fat 32 file size limit and Splitting Files is no longer worth it time wise...when its nolonger needed.

Sorry but there is ZERO way to promise a good 3D effect Film. You could set the HDTV up wrong and ruin a perfectly fine 3D film.
Blu-ray is the best medium for 3D in the HOME. YES. Yes computer generated films currently out do post production 3D buy miles. But REAL 3D films filmed with 3D cameras that cost a bucket load like the Imax did are the best.
Ive stopped tracking which films used Real 3D cameras, Not sure but Resident Evil Afterlife was I think filmed with Real 3D camera systems and Yucky Avatar 3D (or smurfs in space 2 for its correct title ) The lastest smurfs film is actualy only 2D, I think, but it was alot better than smurfs in space 2 as it was set in present day and had the cat.
There is likely a list on Wiki some were.

Also would you know if I can rent good full 3D films which are compatible with my active 3D set up from PSN? Thanks again!
For 3D effect alone I'd recommend Hugo, Tintin, Avatar, The Toy Story films, Sanctum and Avatar.
As for PSN, the only films available from the video store in 3D are a handful of Sports Illustrated titles.

Found a list on wiki
Avoid the films that use post production 3D to see the best that 3D offers.

I've seen : Conan (2011), Green lantern, Titanic, and a few others and the 3D effect is sadly very limited, maybe the ral "pop up" effect is 3 to 15 seconds for a whole movie. The sad thing is that the choice for the elements that are / should be in 3D is often very strange, some chair or window that doesn't bring anything interesting. My TV has the 2D->3D mode and it honestly works way better than a 3D movie, I watched Eragon and The Mummy recently with this on, and it was great as the whole image and all things in it are treated in 3D, sometimes it's minimal but sometimes it's really impressive, I'd say 15 - 20 minutes instead of seconds.
Off course they were crap They were all post production 3D. As posted above they are not filmed in 3D so the studio has to decide were and when the 3D is added manualy buy editing the footage to fake the 3D buy distorting the 2D images by the computer engineers editing each and every frame thats gets the 3D...
