Are we ready for 3D TV?
Just came from ABS-CBN for a guesting on Mornings @ ANC with guys from LG Electronics showing off their 3D TVs as well as that upcoming Full LED 3D TV this June.
One of the parting questions that TJ asked was the prospects of having these 3D TVs being adopted by the market.
At the moment, they’re still a niche product and because of the hefty price tag, very few will be able to afford 3D TVs. However, the same thing happened to Full HD LCD TVs a couple of years ago. They were expensive too, rolling in at the same price point as the current LED TVs in the market.
Personally, I am more inclined to believe that 3D TVs are more attractive to the heavy gamers — Need for Speed, NBA Live 2010 and God of Wars on a big screen (55″ and up) with 3D will definitely change the gaming experience to make the switch a compelling one. And will full LED displays, you get staggering contrast ratios (10 Million : 1) and super fast response times (480Hz).
But then, most of us will just have to wait until them LED bulbs become more affordable. Maybe in the next 3 to 5 years down the road? IMO, I’d actually go for bigger screen sizes first — so how about a 72-incher under Php100k?
