Link is wrong - here is the right one:

That link is dated. You can already order Samsung 3D Tvs at Sears and Best Buy will have theirs on display in the U.S. within 3 weeks. Best Buy also already has the skew number for the LG 3D capable TVs in their system.

I thought LG was coming out with a 65 inch 3D LCD?

All I am waiting for is a decent 65inch 3D set, anyone know which will be the 1st?

I almost bit on the Samsung LED's that came out last year. I was pleased with the styling and some of the innovations with this first wave of 3D TV's. Im looking specifically at the 55' LG LE9500, Does anyone have any info as to how much it will cost? Also, Im assuming that it will be included in this first wave of tv's as disscussed above to be released at the end of March/Beginning of April. Is that correct? anyone know?
post #14 of 116
Yes, I have a price for you for the LG 55 incher. The 55LE9500 is priced at $3,800.00 at Best Buy. Note, it is speced as "3D Compatible" whatever that means. Whether that means it will be 3D ready right out of the box or not like the Samsung, Panasonic, Sony, and Vizio 3D models is not fully answered by that weasel language of "3D Compatible."
post #15 of 116
ok. $3,800 is about what I excpected. it's up there though. I was surprised that a lot of the displays in this first wave of 3DHDTV's will not have local dimming save for the LG's , one of the samsungs and the Vizios. Also last I checked the 55 inch Vizio was going for something like $2,600 when thats released. I need a new display but i gotta wait and see some of these reviews first. I think 3d ready means it def needs some attachment to play 3d and it wont come with glasses like the sonys. 3d will be a bonus for me though so it doesnt bother me that much. damn. decisions decisions.

Local dimming is not the same on the different models. Example:

Quote:


With a cabinet depth of just .92 inches and an 8.5mm bezel, the LE9500 is a full LED TV with the thinness you'd normally expect from an edge-lit model. The 55-inch display supports local dimming of up to 240 addressable segments, while the Infinia LE7500 and LE5500 each offer 16 addressable segments

The Vizio(s) are reported to have 512 zone local dimming

Thanks Lee,
At this point I am thinking to go with a LCD screen, due to videogaming...Chances are I will be waiting for 72 Vizio, but at 9 feet away from my veiwing area I am afraid it will be too big...

That's 9 feet from your eyes to the front of the display right?

Looks like no problem:

Just to note: I own a small electronics company, and my local [Brooklyn, NY] distributors have NO 3D tvs available yet and no ETA.
post #24 of 116
Here is what the Samsung shutter glasses will look like, they reportedly will cost $150 a pair:


post #25 of 116
I just checked another distributor, and they do list the new LED 3D tvs from Samsung, the new C line. They list a C7000 and C8000 model of 46" and 55". I cannot see any ETA on these, because TVs are territory based, so I cannot buy Samsung TVs from this distributor, but they are listed, so their arrival is immanent.

And they will be HDMI ver. 1.4 of course.

9000 series is not coming out any time soon.
post #27 of 116
Alright, Im not really willing to wait till this summer to buy a TV (for financial reasons). However, Id like to get a 3D Display. From what Ive gathered, the first wave will be offered by the C level samsungs (with the squid legs stand), the panasonics and LG's. right now, the LG LE9500 looks the part for me (its the local dimming). Im assuming its coming out in April and $3'800 is dooable. HOWEVER, I just bought a brand new Onkyo HTS 7200 and it supports HDMI 1.3a only. Im assuming that the 3D portion of the LE9500 will require HDMI 1.4 so I would'nt be able to run my display through my AV reciever. So, would it be wiser to wait until these 3D samsungs come out and possibly drive the price of the UNB8500 with local dimming down to maybe 2'800 or 2'900 (does anyone know if these prices will on UNB8500's will actually drop?)

So, do I wait for the brass ring (LE9500) or buy now (UNB8500) and just assume that the differences (minus the 3D) are negligible?

opinions wanted.
post #28 of 116
all signs point to the C series C7000 and 8000 Sammy models being available by end of March, but I can't figure out what is different between the two models (other than the style of the bezel)?
post #29 of 116
C8000 about $400 more.

3D is the big difference. The question is do you want 3D or not? The UNB8500 is an excellent TV, but without 3D.
