Consumer reaction to 3D TVs

TVs
[ Backgorund music ] >> Hey I'm Mark Licea here in Union Square in front of the Best Buy store where they just began selling their first release of the 3D HDTV bundles. >> This is truly one of the most amazing things I've ever seen in my life. >> They look like they're outside the screen too. >> Oh my God I never thought I would live to see this. Oh this is wonderful. >> Of course 3D technology is still very new so we asked our senior editor David Katzmaier to see what he thinks of the 3D craze right now and if it's even worth it. >> The story behind the 3D bundles is that you need a 3D compatible TV, Blu-ray player and source to take advantage of the new technology. You also need a pair of 3D glasses. So the idea is to throw all of that stuff into one package so for example the Panasonic bundle includes the TV, the Panasonics new 3D Blur-Ray player and a pair of glasses. It doesn't include any software however, there's really no included 3D Blu-ray disc yet with that bundle. Though they say they might add one in the future. If you buy everything separately, the TV, the Panasonic 50 inch TV is 2500, the Goggles or the glasses are 150 bucks for 1 pair. Everybody in the family needs a pair so you got a family of 4 that's 600 bucks. There's also the Blu-Ray player itself which is $400 from both Samsung and Panasonic. So that's kind of a steady thing right now. ^M00:01:19 [ Music ] ^M00:01:26 >> So you just got to check out the 3D demo what's your first impression? >> When I first put the glasses on there was like a window you know. >> I'm actually looking to purchase a new TV so I'm trying to make a decision now to buy it or to wait another year or so. I'm not sure but I know it's gonna be the future. >> Have you seen movies in 3D? >> I Have. >> How do you think this compares? >> This compares perfectly. >> What kind of movies or shows or programming would you watch on a 3D TV? >> I'd love to see concerts on a 3D movie that would be really cool. >> I'm a movie buff and I'm a sports buff. Either one is good for me. >> I love horror imagine some of the horror. >> The horror would be amazing. >> The bundle for the Blu-ray player, the glasses and the TV is $3000 is that something that you think is reasonably priced? >> I paid 22 for my LED so it's not that bad. >> I guarantee I'll have this in my apartment within the next 2 months. >> Nice. >> No make that 4 months I aint got that much money. Oh! >> What do you think of the glasses? Could you see yourself in your living room? >> The glasses will annoy me and I wear glasses. This would annoy me. >> Yeah. >> Yeah cause you could see anything over here. >> Alright so you came here looking to buy a TV what's your opinion of Panasonics 3D TV? >> The TV is awesome. The TV has everything you could possibly want on it the 2D, 3D absolutely amazing. My only complaint or caveat is that it's only 50 inches and I think the larger TVs won't come out till September so I'm here to buy a TV today, I like the TV I probably would buy but I'm hesitant because of size. >> So there you have and while I've seen a handful of 3D TVs at CES I think the general consensus among consumers is the price is right and it looks cool. I'm Mark Licea with CNET TV.
