Samsung reveals pricing for its 3D HDTVs, Blu-ray player, home theater system

While Sony was announcing pricing in Japan for its 3D equipment, Samsung was letting us know how much that extra dimension will cost here for its HDTVs and components.

While Sony was announcing pricing in Japan for its 3D equipment, Samsung was letting us know how much that extra dimension will cost here for its HDTVs and components. And as already disclosed in my post the other day concerning Best Buy's forthcoming 3D push, Samsung is enticing buyers by offering a 3D starter kit that comes with the 3D version of Monsters vs. Aliens and a pair of active-shutter 3D glasses with the purchase of a compatible TV and Blu-ray player or home theater system.

You'll appreciate the bonus kit because you'll be spending a minimum of around $2,000 to earn it. For LED-based 3D sets, prices start at $1,999.99 for the lowest-priced UN40C7000, and can run up to $7,000 for the 55-inch UN55C9000. The 3D plasmas generally run less, from $1,799.99 for the PN50C7000 up to $3,799.99 for the PN63C8000. You'll then spend another $400 for Samsung's BD-C6900 Blu-ray player or $900 for the 3D-compatible HT-C6930W Blu-ray home theater system.

If you want to figure out how much those 3D glasses might cost when purchased separately, Samsung values the starter kit at $350. Subtract the value of the included movie (maybe $50) and each pair runs about $150, which is what the glasses have been seen costing for pre-order. Get ready to keep that wallet open if you need additional specs for the rest of your family.
