First 3D TV Sets To Go On Sale 'By April'

9:32pm UK, Wednesday March 10, 2010

Matt Smith, Entertainment correspondent
Electronics giant Samsung is promising the first 3D TV sets will go on sale in Britain by the end of the month.

The Korean firm is expected to reveal more details at a launch in New York but entry-level prices for the dedicated 3D sets are thought to be around 1,800.

Samsung says 2010 will be the year of the "3D television revolution" with "explosive growth in demand".

Later in the week, rival manufacturer Panasonic will start selling its first 3D television in the US, while Sony intends to launch its new 3D models in Japan by June. Sony hopes they will make up 10% of its LCD market in the next fiscal year. Sony's UK entry-level set will probably be around 2,000.

Andy Kerr from What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision has reviewed the new 3D TV sets.

He told Sky News he was impressed with the picture quality.

"I think it's extraordinary. I think there are some issues still to get over with 3D but the great news about the technology is, right from the off, it seems to deliver an experience that we haven't seen before in extremely high quality," he said.

It's not just the technology driving this one but also consumer demand. In the last 12 months 3D has become big business at multiplex cinemas, thanks to big movies like Avatar.

Consumers like what they see and want to see more.

Interesting, but wouldn't that get annoying fast with those glasses?
