For TV manufacturers, this CES is all about 3D. After demoing their new 152" HD3D Plasma TV, Panasonic's unveiled a whole new line of 3D HDTVs that are actually small enough to sit inside your house. As a bonus, they also cost less than the (presumably) hundreds of thousands of dollars a 152" 3D HDTV would set you back. The exact price points have yet to be announced, but we can look forward to seeing the first full HD 3D Viera's in stores "sometime this Spring".
The TC-P50VT20 and TC-P50VT25 have a 50" class screen. The TC-P54VT25 is a 54" model, while the TC-P58VT25 is a 58" model. The biggest of the line is the TC-P65VT25, which spans an impressive 65". According to the HD room, all of these devices will be made without lead or mercury. One pair of Panasonic 3D glasses will be included with each 3D set, which sounds kind of cheap until you realize how nice these glasses actually are. Panasonic went a little further than just including some cheap plastic glasses, these things look comfortable and well-built.Which is still no excuse for them not including a second pair. Do you know anyone who buys a 65" 3D HDTV to watch it alone, Panasonic? These people are paying you thousands of dollars for a fancy television. You can afford the extra cost.
