No one ever thought the first wave of 3D HD TVs was going to
be cheap. Turns out we were right.Panny-TH-P54VT2  

Panasonic, which ran circles around the competition at CES
when it came to 3D picture quality, has given a price for its line of 3D sets
for the first time. The 54-inch Viera TH-P54VT was detailed at a press
conference today in Japan with a price tag of $5,900 (after conversion from the
Japanese Yen).

A less expensive 50-inch model is in the works as well, with
a $4,800 price tag.

Note that these prices may change when the sets hit U.S.
shores – but they’re a good target for those early adopters to begin saving
for.
