Samsung Drops Price on Older 3D Glasses

In addition to new, cheaper 3D glasses, Samsung is dropping prices on the old ones.

The price of active tech 3D glasses has historically been a big problem for customers. In addition to paying a few grand for a brand new 3D television, those that want 3D have had to pay between $100 and $200 for new glasses - a steep fee to be sure.

Last month, Samsung cut the suggested price of the SSG-3100GB down to $50, but that was just the start. Last week, the company also announced a cut on their higher end glasses.

The SSG-3300CR and SSG-3300GR were cut down from $180 to an easier to deal with $130. The SSG-3700CF got an even bigger cut - down to $150 from an original price of $220.
