Paying out around £2,000 for a new television would usually mean a great viewing experience once it is all connected up, but that is not going to happen with the latest 3D Ready televisions that are coming out onto the marketplace.
It is only now that all of the finer points are coming out.
Where the Samsung 3D TV is concerned, paying out a huge amount is just the beginning, because even though this is a 3D television, the actual 3D effect cannot be experienced unless special glasses are worn.
So the consumer is going to have to buy a new television, possibly a set top box and the special Samsung LCD Shutter glasses that bring the 3D effect to life.
These will cost around £100 per pair, bad news for large families.
