This is 1st gen. the problem is, as with any new technology the bugs need to be ironed out.....

Things like, cant watch it lying on your side

The need for glasses (the japanese are working on glasses-free 3d)

The overall quality of the 3d effect and ghosting

Like anything these bugs should get ironed out and things should get cheaper.....

however in the spirit of the site ive voted hot since this is by far and away the best price I could see.

how can you tell what gen a TV is?

Why? I've not heard of that before.
I can't see why active (shuttered) 3D can't be watch with your head tilted.
I'm not after an argument, just information.

You can watch the panasonic lying down.

Glasses free 3d is possible already just can't watch 2D on it.

Panasonic doesn't suffer from ghosting as plasma is alot faster tech. No crosstalk.

But Panasonic only comes in 50" and 65"

I think it is because 3d works by displaying 2 images on screen one for your right eye and one for your left eye and they are slightly to the left and right of each other. If not watching the tv straight on and with your head level the 2 images won't produce the 3d effect.

I'm guessing here but think I may have the logic right!!

Should be illegal selling TV's you cannot watch on your side ;-)
Can you stand the TV on its side, or should they make them for watching lying down on the sofa, I always thought that was the way you should watch TV, do you mean some people actually sit upright ?

Yes, I think you're right. I also thought that lying on your side was ok because shuttered glasses don't rely on the angle of the image to work, unlike polarised glasses which would stop working. But to actually get the 3d effect your eyes have to be at the same angle as the images, IE horizontal.

Need to put size of tv in description. It's 40"

The 3d images are presented in a horizontal offset as opposed to a vertical one.

All of the reviews say all technologies suffer from ghosting as the shutter glasses don't always sync 100% with the image, don't occlude instantaneously, or with 100% occlusion.

The main issue that I didn't even touch on is that most people who've seen home 3d basically say its crap compared to cinema 3d unless you have a monster of a tv or sit right up to a small one.....

All that aside, this is still hot because it cant be had for cheaper.
#16
Dont forget you get 7% quidco for all sales as well, saving you another £70...!!!! Now £930 :o)
#17
sorry but i certainly would not buy a gen1 samsung tv,

done it before , never again !!!
#18
I'll wait for true 4D in 10 years time thanx:whistling:
#19
It's going to be a bit pointless buying this sort of TV now until programming catches up with the technology...
#20
By the time you can actually watch anything in 3D, these will be a lot cheaper.

Using the money back if England win the world cup offer it is possible to get an extra £120 pounds off here is how:

Place a bet on betfair to lay (bet against) England winning the world cup. I'll spare you the maths but if in this case you stake £125 here then if england don't win you win from betfair £120 (there is a bit of commission) and if england do win the world cup then you have to pay out £875 but you get the £1000 from the TV back.

So if England win the TV cost you £1000-£120=£880 and if they don't it cost £875. It does rely on them paying out if England do win though.

Basically pretty much what every one is doing?

I'll be interested in 3-D TV when you can move your head and see parallax. Until then, it's just two pictures.

Think you'll be waiting forever as if they had ever invented a 4D TV in the future, with the fourth dimension being time they'd probably be sat in your living room now having used their 4D TV to travel back in time lol!

great picture pookiepoo- had to register to post this
#27
Good price but wouldn't buy it. Not sure if 3D TV might be a white elephant or not. Certainly not really worth getting it yet as there is so little content out there. A grand would get you a spanking 2D TV :thumbsup:

Save 3D for the pub footie :)

Wouldn't you then have to keep £875 in your Betfair account for a month in case you have to pay out?

i wouldnt waste the cash on something so new and theres nothing to watch on it unless u want re runs of jaws 3d...lol

Yeah, so you would need to have some spare cash floating around, though it won't be earning much interest at the moment...

Glasses-free 3D will never be as good as glasses 3D. The viewing angles will be incredibly tight and nearly impossible for more than one person to watch it. I hope I'm proved wrong but all the tech I've seen so far has this viewing angle issue (except perhaps the spinning 3D one)

These active shutter glasses 3D sets should not produce the ghosting effect you get in cinema (unless the glasses are out of sync) and this is because each eye only sees one picture. There is no double image on the screen.

This TV does not use the display side by side method. It uses the alternating frame method. This means it shouldn't matter which way you look at it. As long as the glasses are synced up right you will only get the frame for each eye.

Saying all that I'd not buy one yet. No 3D blu-rays to purchase at the moment and Samsung hardly have the best reputation for their 1st gen sets. This is a good price if you desperately want one though.

This is a great deal BUT it is not LED, its LCD hence the cheaper price! Still a great telly tho! :)
#35
i wish people would not post rubbish when they no so little about the subject.

first of all the "new 3d tvs" are all exceptional 2D tvs. I am waiting to get the 63inch samsung plasma not for the 3d (which will be a bonus) but because you are getting a cracking 2d performing Tv at a very good price. The active system TVs are sold at almost the same price as last years equivalent models (but this years models are likley to produce a better 2d picture as the technology will have a further year to move on). The new models also have a much more powerful display processor which will equate to a better 2d performance.

You dont have to buy a 3d ready TV just for 3D.

also from what a gather the LED models can not be viewed whilst lying down as the glasses become black, however for some reason the plasma models work whilst lying down. By the way there are no true LED tvs out there - any TV claiming to be an LED TV is still basically a LCD tv at heart

also the universal truth from the various posts online is that the 3d effect from these active TV's is better than the effect you get in the cinema (the cinema uses the passive system which is not as good as the active system).

of course the size of the screen does help with the 3d effect hence why i will be waiting for the 63 inch model.

also whilst the 3D media is thin on the ground at the moment the samsung does have an on the fly 2d to 3d converter which again is meant to be very good.

one very highly regarded USA online site raves about the conversion

http://www.avguide.com/review/samsung-8000-series-lcdled-3d-tv-tpv-88?page=1

This is a good deal although i would suggest that if anyone is buying this for 3D viewing goes for the plasma models instead

Thats really good, I like your thinking! There are lots of similar promotions at the moment, so its a cool way to look at it! If I was buying I'd probebly do just that! : )
#37
Im diggin the thought into these bets/returns idea. Way to think against the system.

I remember a casino not so long ago that gave £50 free bet. So people went halves on red/black each and just split the money to pocket the same amount. There was chance of 0, but it worked well for quite alot of us.
#38
I will vote all 3D TV deals on this site cold due to my objection to the idea
