Samsung to Make 3D Cheaper with 2 Free 3D Glasses Included and Cheaper Additional 3d Glasses

Samsung has announced their plans on making 3D cheaper for consumers. Starting April 24, 2011, the company will be offering 2 free 3D active shutter glasses for its entire 3D TV lineup when you buy any Samsung 3D LED TV or 3D Plasma TV.

And if that’s not enough, starting May 1, 2011, Samsung’s 3D active glasses (SSG-3100GB) will be available at retail for under $50 (regular price: $129). This model doesn’t require charging and will be good for use of up to 70 hours from the included replaceable battery.

Customers purchasing the D7000 and above 3D LED TVs or the D6500 and above 3D Plasma TVs will continue to receive Samsung’s 3D Starter Kit (SSG-3100M). The kit includes two pairs of 3D active glasses, promotional versions of DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc.’s (Nasdaq: DWA) complete Shrek collection on 3D Blu-ray and a voucher for Megamind 3D on Blu-ray. Customers already receiving this starter kit with a step-up TV model will not be eligible for the new promotion.

It’s either this or wait for glasses-free TV in the distant future. I’ve seen the glasses-free TVs, and I’ve yet to see one that can pull 3D off really well like the active shutters or passive shutters.
