Samsung recently announced new promotions that will make 3D in the home more affordable than ever for consumers. Beginning April 24, Samsung will provide two pairs of 3D active glasses for its entire 3D TV lineup at no additional cost with the purchase of any Samsung 3D LED TV or 3D Plasma TV.
Also beginning May 1, 2011, Samsung's 2011 3D active glasses (SSG-3100GB) will be available at retail for under $50.
With the new promotions and price reductions, 3D TV customers can now outfit a family of four with 3D active glasses for under $100. The SSG-3100GB model does not require charging and will provide up to 70 hours of use 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 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.
"We are excited to make it even more affordable for the entire family to enjoy Samsung's lifelike 3D experience," said John Revie, senior vice president of Home Entertainment, Samsung Electronics America, Inc. "Reaching new audiences with the wonder of Samsung's Full HD 3D is key to driving continued adoption of 3D in the home."
