After LG and Hyundai Philips announced a new product series of polarized 3D LCDs. Still they will continue to offer active stereo. The advantage of polarized displays, in their opinion are the cheap glasses. Polarized displays will become available starting in two product series: First the 7000er series and the 50″ “Gold variant” of the 21:9 Cinema Display. In the 7000er series the 42″ 42-PFL7607K will be available starting in May followed by displays in the range of 32″ to 55″ between June and August.
One of the few available polarized LCD 3D Displays is the LG 47LD950. As of today the lowest internet price is ~1.000 Euro.
Hyundai has also some polarized LCDs available pdf but the 46″ sized displays internet price is now arround 9.200 Euro.
The last polarized display I found is the JVC GD-463D10. The internet price is arround 5.200 Euro.
What’s the reason for the huge price difference? I don’t know.
