The thing about upgrading to a 3D TV is that it doesn’t always work well alone. There are a few 3D channels out there and even a few manufacturers offer 3D content through on-screen app services. However, if you want to maximize those 3D effects, a 3D Blu-ray player is an absolute must.
It’s also an added expense—or at least it used to be. When players were first released, they were more of an afterthought, thanks to the high price tag. However, it’s hard to resist snagging a player, when TigerDirect has one for under $100.
The retailer currently has the Toshiba BDX4150 3D Blu-ray player listed for $96.99. However, when you add in coupon code OMH57403 during checkout, that price comes down to $79.99.
The BDX4150 can play both 3D and 2D Blu-rays, as well as DVDs and CDs. Of course, it also has support for all of the Blu-ray goodies you’d expect, like Dolby True HD and DTS-HD audio formats, as well as BD-Live.
In case you run out of discs to watch, the BDX4150 can also provide access to instant entertainment via the web. Just hook the player up to your home network, and enjoy movies, TV shows, music and more, via Netflix, CinemaNow, YouTube, VUDU, Pandora, Blockbuster and Picasa. (Just remember that fees and/or registrations may apply.)
Don’t forget to use that coupon code if you want to get the best bargain. You may want to do it quickly, too. TigerDirect had this exact player listed for $62.99 just yesterday. From the buzzing on the web, that may have been a slip-up, but this is still a pretty sweet deal on a web-enabled, 3D-capable player. Also, TigerDirect says that the coupon will expire tomorrow (Wednesday, March 21, 2012)—or whenever they run out of stock.
