<p>Flat-screen 3D perspective view displays have been touted as promoting rapid appreciation of scenes. However, empirical support is mixed, and it seems likely that the results of some comparisons of 2D and 3D depend more on the details of the interfaces than on the inherent 2D or 3D format. They found that when we appropriately controlled availability and representation, visual search in 2D display formats was always faster than in 3D display formats.</p>
