does look nice,and seems a reasonable price,but my problem is that there are several different 3d formats and until one emerges as the winner in the "war",I wont be buying one-dont wanna end up with an expensive "betamax" with no support.

Same here. and films on three formats. :roll:

i thought that to experience the 3D at itsvery best you needed a tv of 50" or more?
also is this the one that does not need 3D glasses because i heard it has got teething problems and its not quite as good as it can be yet.

On a side note, anyone else going to their local oday to watch fotty in 3d?

Can you sell it to me for 50p please? :-D

my bad, this tv has the 3D glasses so might be better although you do need to buy them extra.

footy is going to be at selected walkabout pubs in 3D goto the walkabout web site for more details.

i think he is refering to the 360 hd player thats is totally worthless now so your 50p will be dead money lol

Not just walkabouts, many local pubs are showing 3D footy today see http://3d.sky.com/pubfinder/

If you think spending 50p on a second hand HD DVD player is 'dead money', you sure are missing some business skills here...lol

any pub who has subscribed to the sky3D channel can show it...

I ain't touching 3d for at least 1-2yrs until it settles down to one format and then the prices will hopefully drop as companies will vie to shift their units etc, personally hoping a non glasses version wins out - otherwise what are people going to do if you have your mates around to watch 3d footy etc - I aint shelling out a wedge for glasses for people when they will get used once in a blue moon - that seems the biggest flaw to me with these 3d sets especially if the spare glasses are not cheap (i.e more than 7p!).

:thumbsup:Wise words remember the HD/Blu ray battle,i think the same will happen here.But as with most things these days there will be new models every month so some people will just wait and wait not wanting to miss out on cheaper deal. Like me for example im only just getting a 40 " LCD as we have two big old 28" flat screens that just keep on trucking, so was reluctant to change the dirty big V8 of a telly to a new sleek LCD:)

On that basis if anybody would like a free Sony 28" trinitron pureflat widescreen,then you are welcome(you will have to collect it from me as postage would be daft money). They both work perfect but sadly one will have to go to a new home.Was thinking of posting it as a freebie on here.What do you think people.My other option is to give to a charity as i will never throw away things that are in good working order,as there would be a constant sound in my head of WASTE WASTE WASTE:roll:
#17
Lol, only just bought an LCD! Don't see these catching on for a while yet.

To above, I just gave away my Trinitron 28" yesterday, bought for £500 6 years ago and now they're worth peanuts. Shame really as it's been such a good TV but that's technology I suppose. My mate is in a similar situation, he has a 50" + rear projection that cost him over a grand, that's also worth hardly anything now
#18
Hopefully i can find a good home for one of them as i can appreciate noy everyone can afford to splash out on all mod cons..But as you say the value is next to nothing. My first one cost me £899 and when released was the bee's knee's.

As far as I was aware, there should not be a format war with 3D, as the films will play on any 3D screen. Its the type of glasses which are the issue, as most of the big companies seem to be opting for the more expensive active shutter versions, and these glasses cost upto £150 (depending on maker)
LG seem to be the only big company using the simpler polarised glasses, which are given away at the cinema.
The difference in the two formats is basically resolution / picture quality.
I have tried both and could not see a massive difference myself, overall they were very good and gave an excellent feeling of depth, especially during the American Football demo i saw, and the motor racing.
Will be buying a 3D set, just not sure which one to go for yet, very tempted by some of the Phillips LCD's and the new Samsung 9000 series is also on the watch list.

For those using Active Shutter Glasses (Sony, Panasonic and Samsung I think) you will not be getting these free at Cinemas as they are at least £100. Panasonic will include two with their TV.

LG is using polarised glasses like the ones you get at the cinemas, they are very cheap so you could buy a dozen for you and all your mates.

There will NOT BE a format war in the same way as say HD-DVD/Blu-Ray, VHS?Betamax because the transmitted signal (say from Sky) and Blu-Rays will be identical, the way it is displayed will be different: Active Shutters or Polarised. So no matter which 3D TV you go for it will not be a 'dead technology'. The only problem you will have as an early adopter is the fact that these TVs will be expensive and may well have teething problems.

The only other factor is 3D with glasses or without glasses. The technology for 3D without glasses is very poor at the moment as it is quite difficult to fool the brain into thinking an image is 3D without some manipulation of your vision. At present the glasses are the best way of doing this.
banned#23
I'm waiting for (decent) 3D without the glasses, if that ever happens. I'm just not that fussed about 3D - even Avatar didn't make THAT good use of it, at least not enough to warrant spending 3 or 4 times the price of a decent 1080p LCD for a new 3D TV.
Actually, if I ever go 3D it'll probably be a projector.

Voted hot, however, as this is a good price for what is included.
#24
Tbh, I got a feeling the tech Sony use will be the one that might win like Blu-ray. BR won because of the PS3 and the fact Sony say the PS3 is 3D compatible (from firmware v3.20 InT and 3.21 public), they will be pushing Bravias to work flawlessly with the PS3 so the tech in the Bravias ought to get more recognised. Would hold my horses till the end of the year before getting me a 3D telly.

Possibly, whereabouts are you in Cheshire?

We still don't 'need' anything other than our lovely 36" Toshiba CRT (and don't need convincing otherwise) but this would be nice to replace the Sony 28" that is on it's way out for the kids older games consoles (PS1, PS2, Xbox1, GC).

Thanks.

The fact there are various forms of tech used in the glasses to view them does mean there is potential for a war of some kind because oevr time people are going to want an industry standard - if you buy a tv for one room then another for somewhere else in the house - you would want the glasses to be the same, if you pop around to a mates house it would help if your 3d tv glasses are compatible with his 3d tv to save him buying spare pairs of glasses etc..

I don't think its as cut and dried as some people think - long way to go before the technology settles down - and if the non glasses 3d tv's get it right, chances are they are going to win hands down from a cost/ease of use perspective anyway - I don't wear glasses and the thought of having to wear some just to watch a tv doesnt appeal at all to me - and I am guessing I may not be the only one - hence the reason I am going to wait til the dust settles on this tech.

And for those that do wear glasses, how are they going to put the 3d glasses over them?
#28
Yup just to confirm theres no format war, whatever 3D TV you buy today will always be able to read the signals forever. Its jsut different ways of decoding the signal that changes, same result.

LOL that made me laugh....... whoever buys this TV is mad, give it 3 years then talk to me about 3D in the home.

3D or not, I wouldn't touch LG with a bargepole. Average picture quality, bad build quality and usually the cheapest branded sets you can get. I havent voted

If i didn't have a great TV already i'd rather wait for the Panasonic 3D TVs which use Pioneer KURO technology

could not agree more


this is a awesome TV,very good specs but....

its too early to decide on the format,there is even a tv in the making where u dont need glasses,which im hoping is the victor,but as said there is about 5-7 different types of 3D at moment
its like betamax/vhs or bluray/hddvd all over again,still crackin find
#32
Watching 3D in the cinema with a whacking great big screen is one thing.

I just can't see how you can get the same experience when most people have 32" - 42" screens and in all sorts of places.

And JustifiedAncient is right. As a glasses wearer, 3D glasses are just a pain in the neck.

"the next betamax"....you mark my words.
#36
I didnt like 3D in the cinema at all - i got a headache and took off my glasses during avatar as i was getting blurred vision - unless they scrap the glasses and improve it dramatically i wont ever get a 3d set
Give it 1-2 years and it will be dead and buried - It wont catch on at all - its a novelty in the cinema - the only reason hd sets caught on was because they were massive slim tvs compared to the old phat crts - Theres no reason for people to upgrade their sets to 3D

i mean lets be honest hd hasnt even caught on yet - ive only recently got sky hd and a blu ray player and im a techogeek - parents still have a crt downstairs
#37
I've seen HD 3D images on this TV and they are great, as well as the general picture quality. The big downside is that you have to be sitting so you are facing the middle of the TV. People watching it at other angles means the 3D is distorted and you don't see it the way the director intended it.

If you live alone and love 3D, then this TV will do you just fine.

I dont get all this 3D tv stuff ! i mean will it really EVER take off ? i dont think so .
