Just 18 short months after 3D made its big HDTV debut at CES 2010, Westinghouse is finally ready to make its own entry into the third dimension, with the 47-inch W47S2TCD. Like most Westinghouse sets, there's really nothing special to make this rather generic TV pop (until you toss on one of the four included pairs of 3D glasses), but you will be getting a passive 1080p 3D display, 3:2 pulldown, three-way selectable color temperature, and a backlight enhancement tool called DayBright. The company is also unveiling five other TVs, including its first connected TV -- the 46-inch WC-4625T -- which includes access to Netflix and Vudu. The 47-inch 3D TV will be sold at Best Buy, Costco, and Target with a suggested retail price of $1199, but we imagine in-store pricing will be significant lower -- with the recent announcement of Vizio's 42-inch passive offering for $699, shelling out an extra $100 per inch for the new Westinghouse set is not likely to sit well with bargain hunters.
