Customs Woes, Secret 3D HDTV Shopping

Post by PressBot »

Did everyone enjoy their long weekend?  We would have enjoyed ours more had our Panasonic 3D HDTV not been held up at customs on Friday (talk about cruel!).  So, we will just have to enjoy our week a bit more instead!

However, all is not lost.  MTBS did some secret shopping this weekend to see how 3D HDTVs are being shown around town.  While there were several challenges, the solutions don't seem all that difficult.

While it's a funny story it's kind of tragic as well since i assume this would happen to quite many... Demoglasses shouldn't have a turn off button/auto-turn-off and should squeal like crazy when batteries are out (internal backup for the sqealer!!!).
In my experience the salesmens also needs doing their howework with 3d. In my nearby town (jönköping) they sells samsung 3dtv's at mediamarkt with a huge sign besides it telling that the future is 3d... or something similar... They just showed the same linked dvd on them like for all other tv's there.... No glasses in sight... How cool wasn't that!!!!
