One of the biggest complaints about 3DTV is the high cost of the glasses. This is particularly an issue if you need multiple pairs for gatherings. While bigger manufacturers are charging up to $200 for each pair, online retailer Kogan are making the 3D glasses much more affordable at just A$49. No delivery isn’t included.
Kogan’s 3D glasses are actually pretty stylish (as far as 3D glasses go), we’ve seen some pretty big disasters in this space. They weigh in at just 47 grams and are rechargeable so no need for batteries, mind you there’s a downside. If you forget to charge the glasses, you’ll need to wait hours for them to charge before watching that movie, instead of just switching in new batteries.
So with the new entry price for 3D Active Shutter Glasses, does that now solve one of 3DTV’s biggest issues ?
The glasses announced today are now available for purchase with an expected dispatch date of 29th July 2011. These come as part of Kogan’s entry into the 3DTV space. Kogan 3DTV’s start at a Live Price of $899 for a 46”, or $1,499 for a 55” with Samsung internals.
