Samsung adds two free pairs of glasses to sub-$1,000 3DTV package

By September 18, 2010 Highlights

Don’t think there’s some give in those 3DTV prices? Now that Samsung’s sub-$1000 50-inch PN50C490 plasma HDTV is on store shelves, it’s improving the offer by throwing two pairs of those (normally $149 retail value each) active shutter 3D glasses in for free. Since it comes with the IR emitter already built in, that’s all anyone will need to get every pixel available of the 3D games on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 or any of ESPN 3D’s broadcasts. Of course, the 720p resolution will give up a few pixels on 1080p Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D discs, but if you absolutely must be 3D ready before next week’s Auburn/Clemson game and only have $1,000 to spend, this is your day. Of course, even among the fraction of the crowd interested in 3D now or in the near future, we’re wondering what kind of deals might be floating around once Black Friday hits. The bundle deal’s been spotted online at Amazon, Best Buy and Vanns, as well as in-store at hhgregg, so you shouldn’t have too much trouble sniffing it out — or avoiding it, if that’s your deal — locally.
