PlayStation 3D Display Bundle $180 - Best Buy

19 replies 2230 views Edited Sep 25, 2012

I just wanted to bring this to the attention of fellow gamers who might be in the search or in need of a $$$-accessible HDTV.

 

Best Buy is currently selling the SONY PlayStation 3D Display Bundle for just $180

Wow, it just keeps coming down in price huh.

 

I'm not in the market personally for an HDTV but It's a decent price, however the failure rate/black screen issues would have me walking away even if I was.

I wasn't aware of this issue but it would explain why the price has fallen so much.  After reading the reviews, it shows that a consideable amount of costumers have encountered a problem with the TV.

That's not a bad price, I would be very skeptical on why the price has dropped so dramatically. I have a 46" LG Ethernet, 3D TV. Got it on sale at Best Buy as well. The reviews were all 4.5 - 5 stars. Best investment I ever made. If your a gamer then 3D is the way to go. It takes the enjoyment of gaming and triples it. So, this price is really good if the TV's quality is up to par.

If anyone buys this monitor, you may want to junk it should it break past its warranty period. The last I checked, Sony's repair facility is charging $170 to repair this monitor. That rate was OK, on a $500 purchase, but ridiculous on a sub-$200 purchase...

I would say you could by an extended warranty, but i almost forgot Sony completely removed the Display from their inventory lists on their sonystyle website.

 

But they still have it under "Playstation Deals" here ---->> http://store.sony.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10551&storeId=10151&langId=...

I might have bought one if they had a larger version. 24" is much to small for me.

I can confirm that the 3D display has issues. It happened to me today. My display is hooked up to my computer and playstation. Well this morning it would not display anything. I see power going though, but wouldnt display my PC or PS3.

Luckily, I had 5 days left on the return policy at best buy. I bought it back in August and since I'm a Silver Member, I had 5 days left f my 60-days.

I had it exchanged and went ahead and bought the 4 year extended warranty in case it happens again.

Other than the issues, its a beautiful display and I really enjoy it. Hope this one lasts alot longer.

Not only that but Sony also realized that most people don't care for 3D.
