3D TV and Dreaded 3D Glasses: Consumers Will Wait

By Daniel Chubb - Oct 13, 2010

There are many leading manufacturers adding 3D model TVs to their existing ranges, including Philips, LG, Sony, Samsung and Panasonic. According to an article by Darren Murph from engadget.com, many consumers appear to have mixed feelings about 3D technology.

One of the reasons why consumers may not be leaning towards a 3DTV purchase, is that they require 3D glasses, which as you know can be quite expensive. Another might be the hefty price tag of the set itself, with some 3DTVs costing thousands.

The Engadget article mentions a DisplaySearch report, which states that out of the entire flat screen televisions shipped this year, 3DTVs will only account for 2% of overall sales. Lack of 3D content at the moment, could be another reason for consumers being cautious.

It would be fair to say that when you purchase a new 3DTV, you should get at least two pairs of glasses as standard. What do you think is the right way for manufacturers to go, 3DTVs with or without glasses?
