October 6, 2010 | by

The Third Dimension has quite seamlessly stepped into the domain of home entertainment world-wide. Today we are viewing the introduction of 3D appliances in each and every entertainment industry. From 3D Movies to 3D Games it all call for the rise of newly designed hardware that will support and equally effectively return back the 3D experience.

This year has doctrined the launch of several 3D Televisions from different companies all corners of the world. But, one can not trust them all. They basic reason is that the prices of these display devices are altogether very high. So, if you are to invest the hefty amount, you should think twice before going for an action. If you are looking for a moderate well to do 3D TV then the prices may vary within the range of $1,999 – $3,999.

We went through a series of models and found that Sony, Samsung and Panasonic were the one who look pretty good and are sure to reach up to the promises they have already made. There are a selection of other companies though providing similar services, some even are giving away the same features at a lower price, but in the long run the durability and quality are the things you got to look for apart from planning your budget well.

Sony’s take on the 3D biz is a bit costly but they do deliver value for money. Their quality is un-questionable apart from a few exceptional cases. It costs around $2,707.00 – $3,600.00.
