"Panasonic's suggested retail price is $2,900 for a 50-inch plasma set, one pair of glasses and a 3-D Blu-ray player. An extra pair of glasses costs $150. South Korean competitor Samsung Electronics Co. announced Tuesday that its 3-D sets would go on sale this week. For $3,000, buyers get a 46-inch set, two pairs of glasses, a 3-D Blu-ray player and a 3-D copy of "Monsters vs. Aliens.""
Meh, totally not interested. I really have no desire to watch stuff in 3-D. Any time I've watched something in 3-D it pretty much guarantees a migraine. Plus there is not a heck of a lot of content available yet, so even if you really want this, you might as well wait until later in the year when there is more compelling content AND you can pick the gear up at a bit lower than the bleeding edge price of admission.
