Wait, do they? I want another one.

 

It depends on what you want. There aren't many 3D monitors for cheap, but there are defintely bigger screens you can get for around the same price.

I see Amazon's price is still $369.

 

At that price, absolutely not.  It was $159 when I bought mine two years ago, and my local Best Buy sold them for $79 after they were discontinued (almost bought another one, but was too slow; they sold out before I could get one).

 

As stated, there are much better, bigger options for about the same price or a little more than what Amazon is currently selling it for.

 

I ended up with a 42" Vizio 3D TV for under $500 about a year ago.

How "cheap" are we talking?

Because all I am seeing is a $369 Brand New one, and many used ones for $150-250.

The PS 3D display launched with a $299 price tag.... soon after, it was discontinued.
Sony ultimately told retailers to sell off whatever remaining stock they had... which allowed them to sell it as low as $80-100

The reliability of the display is questionable by many who've owned one.

So I fail to see where you're looking, for it to be "cheap".

 

Unless you're getting it for $150 or less, its not cheap at all

^ lol no it launched at 500$ which is why it didnt sell at all.

I bought one in 2012 from gamestop when it was on sale really cheap. (Think 150)

Have used it every day since and still works beautifully. Some of the best money ive ever spent

Totally worth it if you find one for the right price, I absolutely love it.....so crisp and clear it runs at 240hz. The 3d on it is amazing. It is made by SONY so the quality is unmatched. I highly recommend it. Option 2 is also spend a couple hundred more and get a 1080P plasma running at 600hz i believe you can pick up at 50" for around $500

I must be living under a rock as this thread is the first I learned of it being discontinued. Sad, as I always hoped they would release a version with a larger monitor. I wanted one badly before its release but after seeing how small it was in person I declined and decided to wait. Now I know they are discontinued I will try to find one in my city for cheap.
