It's hard to believe that just over a year ago, we began to hear rumorsthat 3D films would be coming to the cinema. Now, every DreamworksAnimation picture ever will be made for 3D, and almost every majorblockbuster (Avatar, Alice in Wonderland, etc.) that hits the silverscreen has a 3D couterpart for those who want additional depth (andadditional fees). At CES, most every major TV maker was out promotingtheir 3D HDTVs, which meant that it was only another matter of timebefore the 3D revolution swept the living room. And just a few monthslater, that revolution is set to begin.

Today in New York City, Samsung proudly announced the availability ofthe "broadest 3D product lineup," which includes the world's first 3DLED TV and a 3D LCD/plasma. That's on top of a 3D Blu-ray player andhome theater system, and in case you were worried about gettingcontent, Samsung also announced a partnership with Dreamworks toinclude Shrek in 3D.

The 3D Starter Kit (also new today) will provide those who purchase a3D Samsung HDTV and 3D Blu-ray player or HT system with two pairs ofSamsung active-shutter glasses and the 3D title of Monsters vs. Aliens.Starting soon, Samsung will begin to ship their 3D TV lineup, whichincludes the LCD 7000/8000/9000 series LCD, LCD 750 series and Plasma7000/8000 series. Later this month, the 3D-capable 46" and 55" LCDC7000 sets will ship, with the rest coming in the next several months. Pricing and release information on all the new 3D gear is below.


Samsung Electronics America Inc., a market leader and award-winning innovator in consumer electronics, todayannounced the U.S. availability and pricing of its ground breaking 2010lineup of Blu-ray players, beginning at $179.99. As announced at CES,the BD-C6900, winner of the 2010 CES Best of Innovations Award, leadsthe lineup, featuring built-in 3D playback. For design andperformance-conscience consumers, the BD-C7500 is the slimmest Blu-rayplayer to date, with a nature-inspired, contemporary form factor.Meanwhile, the BD-C6500 offers both performance and speed with fasterdisc load and boot up times, while the entry-level BD-C5500 features an eco-design.  Samsung’sBlu-ray lineup will be on public display at the Samsung Experience,located at The Time Warner Center in New York City beginning March 9,2010.

Wow those price lines are far below what I was thinking these would hit the market at. I was thinking 2-3 grand depending on size plus the cost of glasses. I have not seen any real life reviews of these yet as I imagine most haven't as I don't think they exist. This does bring my interest up considerably though.

I also like this because it will drop the prices in comparable equipment especially the LED/LCD/Plasma displays without 3D!

Hell yes, this is great news. Any time something with a much more advanced feature comes out that has nearly the same price as items without that feature, you get a nice little price tumble. It looks like Samsung is trying to force these out into every price point and size.

I think it's because the monitors are Samsungs. Hey - it got you and me to click on the article. hehe

Samsung has always been a leader in the LCD market to me. I have not had a TV in 3 years, last one I had was a old boob tube style.
