How to Get a 3D HDTV for $100



    The Best Places on Earth

    Unless you live in a cave, you know that 3D TV is coming, and that to watch it you'll need a new — and pricey — TV.

    Or will you? As our friend and Sound & Vision alum John Sciacca observes in this blog post, there may be an alternative for cheapos.

    The answer is to get a 3D-ready DLP TV for cheap, then bank on an announced (but still to come) device that will magically make your TV compatible with the new 3D Blu-ray standard. The device is expected to cost about $100. So, for example, if you picked up the Mitsubishi WD-65737 for about $1,000 (used models sell for about that much) and the magic box, you'd be spending less than half the cost of the cheapest 3D TV that Samsung is selling right now. Sure, you won't have the sleek form factor of a flat panel, but if you're putting your set on a stand anyway, that's not a big deal.

    Of course, if you already have one of these 3D-ready TVs, you're in business for just $100. And you thought DLP was dead.
