So I've noticed that Noel Leeming have released their Samsung 3D TV's online and are priced $3399-$5499 46"-63"
Samsung 50" FULL HD PLASMA TV Is priced at $3499, for a 50" Full HD Plasma and I don't think that's too bad, as you get the latest features found in a Plasma/LCD/LED TV, the slim screen, internet connectivity, motion control and this particular model comes with 2 sets of 3D glasses. So there is a small premium going 3D but is it worth it?
Ignoring the fact that there is nothing to watch in 3D at the moment, the other question is are you likely to buy one in the next couple of years or have you already put an order in.
IMHO I get the impression that all the big manufactures are forcing us down this road and its just a matter of time before we adopt it in our living rooms, and the day where you don't have to wear the glasses will be the day it takes off.
