Active 3d Glasses for Samsung 3d LED Tvs Are Expensive and Ugly

I have been all excited about getting a 3D TV since hoards of them showed up at CES this year. Some of the first 3D TVs that will be on the market will be from Samsung. Its sets will hit the US and Europe next month and require active 3D glasses.

I have had a suspicion that going with active glasses was going to be the norm, not because the tech is better necessarily, but so the TV maker can charge us an arm and a testicle for the glasses. I was right, at least in Samsung’s case.

The Samsung 3D active glasses needed for its TVs have turned up for sale and cost $150 per set. That’s right; a family of four will drop an extra $600 on 3D glasses alone. I’d like to kick the guy who made this decision in the balls for all 3D TV fans out there.
