There’s some good news in the home theater world this morning. First off, LG has heavily marked down its beautiful 3D Cinema smart TVs. The markdowns are in the range of $700-$800! Hopefully, you didn’t just buy one of these (although you could probably return/exchange it for the new lower price). Here’s a breakdown of the price drops:
* LG 55G2 55-Inch Cinema 3D 1080p 120Hz LED-LCD HDTV with Google TV and Six Pairs of 3D Glasses- Was $2,300. Now only $1,500.
* LG 47G2 47-Inch Cinema 3D 1080p 120Hz LED-LCD HDTV with Google TV and Six Pairs of 3D Glasses – Was $1,700. Now only $1,000.
Both TVs come with 6 pairs of 3D glasses. In addition to being 3D TVs, these TVs come with Google TV installed. While Google TV hasn’t exactly had the success that was predicted for it, it’s still a great platform, even more so now that XBMC has been released for Android. This means that you’ll be able to run XBMC on your TV without having an HTPC! Pretty cool, huh?
In other news, Avatar 3D is finally for sale by itself. As most of you know, Panasonic had an agreement making Avatar 3D only available with the purchase of a Panasonic 3D Blu-ray Player, meaning you had to pay a few hundred bucks to own Avatar on 3D. It’s a few years late, but hey…better late than never…right? You can now own Avatar 3D for $28 with free 2-day shipping at Amazon.
