Panasonic Launching 3D TVs Tomorrow, Would You Buy One?
By on March 9th, 2010

3d TV3 Dimensional Televisions have created quite a hype in past few months. Everybody is talking about them and finally they are hitting the stores this week, at least in the US. Panasonic is collaborating with Best Buy to launch the first breed of 3D TVs as early as tomorrow. CrunchGear reports that at least 300 Best Buy stores will create special 3D Television sections to promote these units.

The prices are of course quite elevated initially, for example, a 50 inch TV would sell for $2500 with an extra $500 for a bundle of accessories including the BlueRay player and the 3D glasses.  Initially, the TVs would not have any web access. Panasonic, who is the first manufacturer to launch 3D TVs in the US, is trying to recapture some market share in the overall television market from Samsung. Samsung is currently the number one selling brand with a 20% share of the global television market.

Do you think 3D TVs will live up to the hype or would they be the iPad of the TV industry? More importantly, would you spend a few hundred dollars more to buy a 3D TV. I can see people using it for special movies and such but you wouldn’t want to watch a football game wearing 3D glasses?
