Ill. - Sears is accepting online
pre-orders for a pair of Samsung 3D TVs.
The 46-inch and 55-inch LED models will be available in stores
and online in March, the retailer said.
The 46-inch set, model number UN46C7000WFXZA, carries a $2,600 retail,
while the 55-inch model, number UN55C7000WFXZA, is selling for $3,300.
The TVs are being presold through a Samsung splash page at www.sears.com/electronics, which
also advises shoppers to "Check back soon for Blu-ray player and 3D glasses."
Sears said it will also provide online and in-store customers
with facts on 3D TV to help clear up misinformation about the technology. Top
"myths" include the need to wear 3D glasses for all content; regular content
appearing fuzzy after watching 3D programming; and 3D TVs being prohibitively
"The anticipation for the 3D experience at home has been
mounting, and we're giving our shoppers a competitive edge by being one of the
first retailers to offer these products," said Karen Austin, president of home
electronics for Sears Holdings. "Our availability of Samsung's 3D products
further extends our commitment to ensure that Sears shoppers have access to the
latest home electronics offerings ... With
technology moving so fast this is a unique opportunity for consumers to get
ahead of the technology curve."
Sears similarly accepted online pre-orders for Samsung's DualView
digital cameras one month in advance of their release last September.
