Panasonic, one of several manufacturers designing 3-D TVs, is even taking its prototypes on tour across the country.
While new 3-D TVs are not for sale just yet, Consumer Reports says the prototypes look promising.
"Many of the 3-D demos that we've seen represent a clear step forward from the previous generations that we've tested," said Jim Wilcox, Consumer Reports senior editor for electronics . "They seem to deliver very good three-dimensional depth and resolution, especially with animated content."
But at Consumer Reports labs, the verdict is still out until testers can get the new 3-D TVS in-house.
"We'll be evaluating the quality of the 3-D, and then we'll also be seeing how well these TVs perform as conventional TVs. Three-D is really a new feature on the TVs. We won't be watching everything in 3-D," Willcox said.
As for the cost, it's expected there will be a 20 to 25 percent premium for these 3-D TVs.
"Remember, you're also going to have to pay for glasses. Some manufacturers may bundle a pair or two with the TV, but additional glasses are probably going to cost anywhere from $60 to $200," Willcox said.
Consumer Reports' take? You've got plenty of time before you need to think about buying a 3-D TV.
