The Sony KDL-46HX800 ($2699 MSRP) is a 3D-ready TV. What does 3D ready mean, you ask. In short, it means you have to buy more accessories. Not just the glasses, which run $150 a pop. You also have a buy a '3D Sync Transmitter' for $50, which sits on top of the TV like an Wii sensor bar. You can't just ask the KDL-46HX800 for 3D, you have to beg for it.
