3D prices not too steep

by Rapid TV News

Website: Rapid TV News

Samsung’s latest range of TVs will go on sale in the US at the end of March.

Indeed, some models are already available, and will be in key European markets very shortly.

We know their prices, and the 3D sets will not be cheap.

Samsung’s debut into the 3D set market is its range of UNC7000 models which are already being discounted by Amazon at around $2339 for the 46” model and $2969 for the 55” which suggests that buyers are paying just $250 extra over the ‘non-3D’ models.

Broadcasting of any sort of 3D signals is still some months away, so Samsung has handily bundled in an offer which includes a Samsung 3D Blu-ray player and a pair of active shutter glasses.

Panasonic has also released its 3D plans, using Best Buy in the US as its prime retailer and charging $2500 for a 50” set, or $2900 when a 3D Blu-ray player and glasses are included.

In other words 3D prices, at least for US buyers, are not too outrageous, and significantly less than early HDTV models.

And most analysts expect these introductory prices to quickly fall as quantities – and competition – increases.
