From then to now. Early adopters learn this and if they are good learners they learn to wait for what they want.
Samsung is a company that can not be trusted. I was doing research on 3D TVs about a year before they came out. I was in the market for a Blue Ray DVD player. When buying one I asked if it will be compatible with the new 3D TVs and 3D movies when they are released or should I wait? I was told yes they would be compatible. After about a year I was having problem with my Samsung new Blue Ray player, I had pursed an extended warranty for 5 yrs. Samsung was contacted and sent me a DVD that I was to play in the player for upgrade they told me it would fix the playing problem. The player begin to smell like burning from inside. I contacted Samsung and they told me to send it to them and they would replace it with a new upgraded one with all the latest updates in it. Again I asked if this one will also be capable to playing the 3D DVD movies. This time a Samsung repetitive said yes when the 3D TV?s come out and you buy one they will have a download for your Blue Ray player that allows you to play 3D movies. This is and was a lie. They replaced my Blue Ray DVD player early 2010 with a new one BP-1600 from a BP- 1500 and Samsung confirmed my question about the compatibility for plying the 3D movies with it. So know it?s Oct. 2010 I?m in the market to buy a Samsung 3D TV after doing some research I find out my DVD player is not compactable to play 3D movies when I called Samsung and advised them of what I found out they checked and said it was true I asked for a replacement because I had been mislead on what I had bought by the place of punches and also by Samsung reprehensive. I was refused a replacement with one that was compatible to play 3-D movies like I had been told this one was.
So what else have I found out about Samsung? They really would not like you know this information until after you buy there 3D TV. One you have to pay extra for the 3D glass and to get the best results you have to buy there 3D glasses at an additional cast, you will also have to buy a new DVD player that will play 3D moves preferably a Samsung it works better with there 3D TV, and if you would like to watch 3D on a TV you will pay extra for the channel that has the 3D movies. My personal opinion is that 3D Samsung TV is not a good idea to buy at this time. Maybe in 5 years or more when it?s time for me to replace my New Samsung Blue Ray player that will not play 3D I will then look at the 3D player and the 3D TV?s. Then hopefully buy then Samsung realization will set in with the low sales to quit trying take advantage of the consumers with misleading information.
Myself I will not be looking at a Samsung product ever again.
