Do you enjoy 3D TV? Have you seen Avatar? Well, if you like the experience or not, 3D technology is becoming a part of all entertainment formats. You will now find it in a movie theater, on your gaming console as well as hand held gaming. It has become the new buzz of the era. Apart from movie theaters and gaming consoles, the most contentious proposition of 3D technology is its introduction in your TV sets. The technology will be built in to your units.
In this article, we will give you details with regard to the advantages and complaints against 3D technology. After reading the article, you will be able to understand whether 3D TV will become a success in the market or will it not be worth the purchase.
According to Consumer Reports, the price of inserting the technology within TV sets has dropped rapidly. There is a mere difference between a set without the technology and a set with the technology built in. The difference on an average comes up to be between $600 and $800 which is expected to drop to almost negligible within a year or so.
The only complaint recorded against the technology by most consumers is the added cost of buying the glasses. When you buy a set with 3D technology, you need special glasses to enjoy the new format. Most sets come with one pair of glasses and thus you will have to buy spare glasses for other family members. A new pair of glasses will cost you about $150. But like other things, the price of glasses is also expected to fall once the new technology becomes a buzz in the market. Also, when companies understand that their sales are dropping because of what they are charging for the glasses, the pricing will reduce. You will probably also start seeing promotional offers during holiday seasons wherein you could get two pairs of glasses with the set that you buy.
One of the biggest reasons that will make 3D technology succeed is the upcoming firmware update to the PlayStation 3. As soon as the technology is introduced to devices like these, and also the upcoming Blu-ray players, which can completely change the gaming experience for a person, people will start buying and using the technology more and more because it is there, waiting for them.
Remember what happened when DVD was introduced? Also the Neffix software which can be seen in almost all devices now? Well, people just start following the trend and adopt any newer technology that is introduced just because it is better than the earlier ones and it is there for you. The only thing that can prevent 3D TV from succeeding is its cost.
