Samsung announced an upcoming price drop for its current 3D glasses, which will complement its recently redesigned and streamlined active shutter glasses. The SSG-3100GB 3D glasses are now $129, but starting May 1 they will retail for $50 per pair. They don't need recharging and can run for up to 70 hours before the battery has to be replaced.
The $50 glasses aren't only a new low point in the cost of active shutter 3D glasses, but they're also the key to letting users enjoy their 3D HDTVs with no additional investment. Samsung will include two pairs of SSG-3100GB glasses with all of its 3D HDTVs for free.
This does not include the D7000 and higher LED TVs and D6500 and higher plasma TVs, which will continue to include the SSG-3100M 3D starter kit with which they were already bundled, which also includes the two pairs of glasses and a 3D Dreamworks movie.
