LG's active shutter 3D glasses will cost $79, significantly less than models from competing manufacturers like Panasonic and Samsung.

LG's active shutter 3D glasses will cost $79, significantly less than models from competing manufacturers like Panasonic and Samsung.

According to a report by CNET, LG will sell active-shutter glasses designed for use with 3D TVs for just $79. This is likely to be significantly cheaper than 3D glasses from several other manufacturers.

Prices for active-shutter 3D glasses from Panasonic, Sony and Samsung have not yet been confirmed, but a single pair of rechargeable glasses is expected to cost $150- $200, with replaceable-battery glasses such as Samsung's budget model costing slightly less.

3D televisions require the use of active-shutter glasses to create the simulated 3D effect, and purchasing extra sets of glasses could significantly drive up the cost of bringing 3D to your lounge room. Currently, active-shutter 3D glasses have no industry standard meaning glasses may not be able to be shared between television sets from different brands.

A spokesperson from LG's PR agency said the company currently had no date set for the release of 3D televisions in Australia.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
