Samsung Offers $50 Active 3D Glasses
Not only that, all Samsung 3D TVsLED LCDs and plasmaswill come with two pairs of the new glasses that are powered by a replaceable battery that provides up to 70 hours of use. Buyers of a 3D LED LCD in the D7000 line and above or a 3D plasma in the D6500 line and above will get Samsung's 3D Starter Kit, which includes promotional versions of all four Shrek movies on 3D Blu-ray and a voucher for Megamind on 3D Blu-ray in addition to two pairs of glasses.
I've always doubted that active glasses would drop significantly in price, but Samsung has proven me wrong. Of course, there's still no universal active-glasses standard, so the new Samsung glasses won't work with other brands of 3D TVs (except Mitsubishi), so I hope other manufacturers follow suit, bringing full-resolution 3D TV within reach of more consumers.
