Samsung 3D TVs Launch in March, Prices Start at $1,700

samsung 3d tvs launch in march prices start at 1700 led 9000The 3D deluge continues. After Panasonic’s Monday announcement that it will begin hawking its long-awaited 3D plasmas at Best Buy tomorrow, Samsung has also rushed to divulge details on its own line, finally clearing the haze of question marks surrounding its 2010 3D TV line up.

The first 3D Samsung sets to reach stores will be the 46- and 55-inch versions of the LED C7000, retailing for $2,600 and $3,300 respectively, and appearing in stores “later this month.” Although Samsung won’t match Panasonic’s deep discounting on new 3D TV sets, it will sweeten the deal when you pair any 3D TV with a Samsung 3D Blu-ray player or home theater system, throwing in two pairs of 3D glasses (otherwise valued at $150 apiece) and Monsters vs. Aliens on 3D Blu-ray.

All told, the company will launch 3D TVs across five series: the LED 7000, 8000 and 9000, the LCD 750 (which used a traditional CCFL backlight), and the Plasma 8000 and 9000 series. The most affordable TV in the upcoming 3D line, 46-inch LN46C750, will go for $1,700 when it launches in May, while you can expect to drop a princely $7,000 on the flagship 55-inch UN55C9000 when it launches in April – the pencil thin model that will automatically convert 2D content to 3D.

Naturally, 3D Blu-ray players and home theater systems will also join the party. The BD-C6900 will launch within this month for $400, while the HT-C6930W home theater system will arrive in April for $900.
