Too small for 3D tho imo, good price tho
#5
Good price, paid that sort of price 2 years ago for standard 32" Tv
#6
had decent review, does suffer from moderate amount of crosstalk as stated in review, i still think 40 is too small for 3d. nice price though, i shall abstain from this one
#7
Will I be able to play mkv, avi and divx files via the USB / LAN port on this, do you think? :|

No they aren't supported and doesn't look like they will be in future firmware updates

I didn't find it as bad as the cross talk from a couple of Samsung's (C750's I believe) I had last year.
The best 3D image I've seen so far came from a Panasonic plasma.

bit of a wait,lol

This isn't a bad deal, only major let down is the speakers and mirror like screen.

The one I purchased earlier this year was sent back as the screen was 'cloudy'. The 3D is very good however on this set although the old style glases are a bit heavy, go for the newer one's if you go down the 3D route or even better still get some Xpand 3D glasses that are universal.

I have to agree with you on the Panasonic comment. My Dads Panasonic is absolutely amazing but he paid the price for it :-). Am hanging on till september and hoping that the pannys come down a bit in price.
#17
Good deal. Is this the Bravia 3 engine or is 4 out, not really up to date with recent developments.
#18
I don't think 3D is really going to take off until they work out a way to commercially produce glassless 3D TVs. You could get a 50' 1080p LG Plasma ( http://www.amazon.co.uk/LG-50PK590-Widescreen-Internet-Freeview/dp/B003FMSIW2/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1308825744&sr=8-2 ) for the same price as this. Unless you have Sky HD or a 3D Blu-Ray player, you'd be far better off with the LG tv for this sort of money.

true that plasma shows the best 3d, however playing games on a plasma is like signing the tv's death certificate

Most likely will never happen, as the technology used for glasses-less 3D TV would only allow a few 'sweet spots' in front of the screen where the 3D effect would work. Great if you could have chairs dotted around your room in specific areas, but for most people that's not really practical.....

Ah, this I did not know. I presume that is because of the screen burn on static visuals on console games? So LED then is much more appropriate if you will be 3D gaming?

I had this tv for 2 weeks ,Not very good i'm afraid ghosting was just taking over the screen so took it back.the best 3d tv to go for are samsung ,panasonic,sharp ,and higher model sonys as there panels are made by Sharp.They make panels for every one.

Ignore this fool.

My 50" Panny Plasma has enjoyed many many hours with my PS3, XBOX 360, Wii and MAME on the PC.

I play games of my plasma all the time and I have no screen burn in, tbh I think it would only be a problem if you were playing the same game continuously all the time (like black ops or battlefield) otherwise it's just as likely to get burnt in by the DOG (Think BBC One HD etc) on your favourite channel.

Ignore him, plasmas are perfectly fine for gaming and in my view a much better option with lower input response times and lower pixel response times making them great for gaming.
#27
OK thanks for the information - So for someone who is going to be gaming as well as watching 3D films, Sky 3D etc, would you recommend LED or Plasma definitively, and Passive or Active? Any suggestions would be gratefully welcomed. Thanks

Have had one of these since Christmas. Fantastic 2D TV. 3D is fun but not perfect as crosstalk definitely is an issue...buy with this in mind, as I did, then you'll be very happy.

BTW...chose this over Panny after a lot of consideration. This was brighter and IMO better 2D pic. Plasma Panny had less 3D crosstalk but duller image.

Got this TV before Christmas too for just over £1000 (with free 3D blu-ray player/Glasses/Transmitter etc) so this is a great price!

I've only really noticed the crossover on dark 3D scenes, but to be honest there isnt much 3D content out there so when its just being used as a HDTV it is one of the best for picture, and I still think its the best looking TV out there!
#30
tbh i wouldnt want to pay £600 for a tv that can only do well half what is its main selling point.
this is a gd 2D tv without a doubt, but i wouldnt want to buy a 3D till all issues are ironed out, prolly in next gens 3D sets. thats y i just stuck with a 2D set for now and see how things develope in next yr or so.
who knows what round corner or if 3D dies off again

for me its wait and see on 3D

Sounds decent, but would never buy a television from Marks & Spencer again. Bought a tv from them last year. Within a couple of months, the screen failed. Got passed around departments. Unfortunately, they don't speak to each other. Took over a week of repeated phone calls (and several quotes of the Sale of Goods Act) to get a refund. Was amazed at the poor service from a perceived reputable company.

Did you contact Sony about the crossover issues? They will send you filters for the 3d glasses to eliminate this problem.
#33
Don't see the point in buying 3D TVs right now. There's not enough stuff to watch in 3D yet and by the time there is they will be cheaper and most probably have better technology ie not require glasses.

Agreed and the current glassless 3D technology isn't very good on the eyes for long time viewing so its terrible for movie marathons :p . I doubt we will ever see a glasses free 3D TV I think holo technology will hit a long time before that (within the next ten years or so) and 3D will start to phase out.
#35
TOP TIP - The default brightness setting for 3D viewing on this TV is set to auto (mid level). First thing you should do is set it to 'high' and give yourself a brighter 3D picture.

Also...to the 3D complainers...the 3D might not be perfect but it is flippin' good! Waaaaay better than Red/Green system. There is more than enough 3D content out there for the amount you are going to want to use it (particularly as this is only a 40 inch TV). 3D is best viewed on a huge screen but for me this is a great fun stopgap until a decently priced and bright 3D projector comes along.

Passive technology does not hurt your eyes and works extremely well on my LG tv :)

Glasses are only £1 too :)

Seems decent but one thing puzzles me....just how big a living room or spare rooms do some of you have who are proclaiming 40" "too small for 3D" ?

THX - who are less likely to be biased than various retailers - are talking about 1.5-2m is the most effective for 40", and that then jumps up further as the screen size increases. I don't doubt that a big screen is immersive, but I wouldnt trade quality for immersive.
#38
Has it expired? Says that it is Deal of the day £599 but comes up as £749 in my basket.
Ideas?

EDIT:
Just seen this text.
