The prices for the first 3D HDTVs is going to be pricey. Panasonic has confirmed that a 50″ 3D HDTV with a 3D Blu-ray player and one set of glasses will retail for about $2,900. Extra 3D glasses will cost you another $150 per pair according to the company. Samsung says their deal on a 46″ 3D HDTV, with a 3D Blu-ray player and two pairs of glasses will be $3,000 and includes a 3D movie.

There is good news. The HDTVs can switch between 3D and 2D, which doesn’t require glasses to view. LOL

Panasonic recently announced that the company will be partnering with Best Buy once the 3D sets hit the stores. But it makes one wonder just how many of these new 3D sets will sell at such high prices?

I know I will be waiting for prices to drop and also to see just how popular 3D will be for home use.

Comments welcome.
