Sorry I should have said, its not for the mainstream like you and me, its for the gadget junkie.KSarty said:I understand that, but it is as you said "stupidly priced", as in people would have to be stupid to bother paying for that. Even if I did have any interest in 3D tech, would I seriously consider replacing my 48" HDTV for a 12" 3DTV? No, regardless of the price that would be stupid, the price tag just makes it worse.ColdStorage said:Its normal actually, the first ever flat panel TV's in the mid 90's were 10 to 12 inch and ridiculously priced (something like 1200 dollars), they were just tech demos essentially sold for the gadget junkie which would later fund the bigger better TV's, same with HDTV's, a couple of years ago they were about 5000's dollars for a 26 inch plasma.KSarty said:What a piece of crap. 3D or not, $1440 for a 12-inch TV is bullshit.
Partly to do with market demand bringing the cost down over time, but its normal for "new tech" to be stupidly priced.
You make the exact same arguement against this TV as the CRT crowd did when Plasma's and LCD's came out at a billion dollars for 20 inchers.
"why should I buy that when I have a 36 inch CRT?!, its madness"
blah de blah.
