The TC-P54VT25's selling price of about $3,000 is slightly higher than that of similarly equipped LCD models from Samsung, LG and Sony. Remember, though, that the package includes one pair of $150 3D glasses, whereas the others do not. The overall cost is actually pretty close between the brands. Ultimately, the question with this Panasonic or any other 3D TV is, how much are you willing to pay to get 3D right now, even though content is scarce? The TC-P54VT25 has many worthwhile features beyond its 3D ability, but those features are available in other Panasonic models for less money. Panasonic will soon release a lower-priced 3D line, the GT25 Series, but that line only includes screen sizes of 50 and 42 inches. If you want a 3D TV at the larger 54-inch size and prefer Panasonic, the TC-P54VT25 is currently your only option.
