New 3D TVs To Cost You $1K Per D

Colin Boyd of Get the Big Picture put together a roundup on the upcoming home entertainment craze of 2010, 3DTV. The verdict: New bigscreen, 3D-capable TVs in the 46 to 50-inch range from Panasonic and Samsung will cost about $3,000. And the early industry standard seems to be that the sets will come with two pairs of glasses. Additional glasses, required for watching in non-blurry vision, will cost an extra $150.

The TVs are the first out the gate and are on sale this week.

When and at what price — if at all — would you be interested in adopting one of these pricey newcomers into your home theater? And are the glasses a dealbreaker?
