The Isis 42" 3D TV offers outstanding value, plus it comes complete with 4 pairs of 3D glasses, meaning that the whole family can enjoy eye-popping 3D action from the latest films and sports.

Yes its not the most prestigious brand in the world, and not the most hi-tech tv around, but at this price, surely a decent option for people considering going 3D..

£373.75 after TCB. Don't know if any voucher codes exist..

If anyone has one, please enlighten with review

Got an Isis but not this model. Fantastic quality for the price i paid.
3D Ready? How much do 3d transmitters cost?
Fantastic reviews
My kids are chomping at the bit for 3D , but man, that is one fugly tele....if I brought that home they'd say "Dad, look, we know you're trying your best, but really...just look at the plight of it - be away with you before someone we know turns up"

if TV aesthetics were measured by politician's beauty factor ...then this one is Anne Widdecombe (during her very aesthetically challenged spell)

I think they got the brand lettering a litte wrong - it should not say Isis, but Minging.

I guess a 3d transmitter is either a 3d blueray player, 3d material on a pc or 3d sky

3D Ready? How much do 3d transmitters cost?


I think that means a 3D source ie a a 3D capable bluray player or SKY 3D channel
so what about say.. 3d xbox/ps3 games? would they work without buying anything else?

i think so yes. ps3 is a 3d blu ray player, just needs the free update from playstation to play them. i dont know if this tv is any good , just saw this and thought it was cheap.
What happens 3 years down the line when you need new glasses or a repair and the brand may well not be in existence anymore.
what is 3d please I am interested as I can no longer get ch 4 & as 3 goes into 4 1.2 times I thought this might be an upgrade but my carer is not so sure
Gracias

Fantastic reviews



The reviews dont seem to tie up with the product - none refer to the 3d, one mentions its great value at less than £300 and there are reviews back from at least Feb 2011 - I couldnt be bothered looking further but there were still many pages to go and the BestBuy site says it is a new product???
is it passive or active, cant see anywhere.

With 4 pairs of glasses included in the 300 quid price tag, passive most definitely.

It's 1.33 times though.

7 out of 5 people have trouble with basic maths.

£373.75 after TCB rounds up to a 400 quid price tag.

Wonder when they'll bring out 4D...
the specs dont seem to add up to me... but if this is passive then its a very good price.
Isis are manufactured by Sharp

At this price, dont be daft . You need to spend thousands to get a colour tv meaning only celebrities and footballers can afford them

50Hz refesh rate would all indicate it's passive.

The 4th dimension is time, so the answer is never.
I don't need this as I have a 40 inch HD TV in my room but I had sky HD so would be able to get SKY 3D but really it isn't going to be worth it just to watch the odd football match/film

I do believe thats a racist comment right there...:{


'racist' eh?
I was expelled from school once.
I wanted to run in the 100m, teacher wanted me to run in the 200m,we argued for 10 minutes then he accused me of being "Racist"!!!
If you are on the Entertainment Extra package + movies on Sky can you activate the 3D channels for free? If not, how much are they?

Of course it's passive. It's a TV you tard, it's not going to get up and follow you about the house. It'll just sit there.

Aslong as you have Sky HD, Sky Sports, Sky Movies and all 6 packages (entertainment, children, etc..) basicly the sky world pack, you will get 213 for free. If you dont get it, call sky or go online to activate it. It will come up split screen, and look strange but the TV will decode it for you
i havent heard of Isis but this is an unbeleivable price for a 3d 1080p 42" tv with 4 sets of glasses

i assume its passive 3d ?
Picked up mine today
Got my sky 3d switched on its great
plenty of rear connections
Gives you virtual 3d on ordinary channels, works good
passive and as there are seven of us i need cheap glasses

We have also been using them cinema glasses and think perhaps the effect might be better with them:D
as for the price unbelivable

Any discount codes please?
Definately try cinema glasses much better 3D
Picked up mine today.

Well happy - great pic on Virgin HD and GTA5 is great!

12yo and her mates and a 4yo and her cousins in the house, If any of them tread on the glasses by accident its no smacked legs.

A great introduction to 3d for nothing money!

Thanks OP
Seen this in store, and I must say it is a very good deal given the view, better than some LG and Samsung by comparism. Also an LCD 46" for £349 in store
Mine was just delivered this morning.

a few things that weren't clear in the original post or on the Bestbuy site.

- you can record onto USB, not just play media
- It's gloss black (the images/description weren't clear IIRC)
- it has 4, not the advertised 2, HDMI sockets (3 rear, one on the side - the side HDMI (along with the 2 x USB and CI slot) is very deeply recessed - about a foot or more - so connecting things when it's on the wall won't be straightforward!)
- the four pairs of glasses each come with a pouch and a cleaning cloth (nice touch, I thought!)

I haven't yet connected it or even turned it on (requires some wiring work in the room before I can do that) but I'll report back once I do.

First impressions (for what they're worth from simply looking at a powered-down TV set!) are very positive :o)
Bought this isis 42" tv couple of days ago. Firstly, although no longer on Bestbuys website, they have continued the offer of £399.99 until 19th october 2011. It is bestbuys own brand, though the actual screen and most of the components are manufactured by Panasonic. The tv has 4 hdmi, 2 scart and av. It also has 2 usb ports for video/pic/music, and can record tv onto usb stick. It comes with 4 pairs of passive glasses, will display full 1080p on 2d, and 3d from 3d bluray player using hdmi 1.3 cable. So far am very happy with it. No buzzing from tv (as reported by from another user, and have run the tv for about 15 hours so far with no problems. Picture quality is pretty fantastic, and despite being passive, blurring, cross over etc not an issue. Also the 3d upscaling of 2d dvds is impressive. Doesnt give quite the depth of the true 3d bluray, but definately works, Has brought a whole new dimension (if you will forgive the pun) when watching Bones on dvd. As to the "ugly "comment earlier, dont see it myself. Its a gloss black surround with touch panel buttons on the front lower case (very discrete) Won't deny it is not as pretty as a £2500 super slim ambient lighting tv, but for £399 it matches the £800 bracket tvs I was also shown in the shop. Also, it is fully compatible with 3d playstation, laptops etc, and looks great with my hdmi enabled nokia n8 attached. Finally apparently with the playstation, if you adjust the passive glasses by putting 2 left lenses in one and 2 right lenses in the other, 2 people can play split screen games with both players seeing a full screen display of their game only at the same time.....gonna try this out!

I've been hoping to buy one of these for the past couple of weeks and was under the impression they were out of stock in all Best Buy branches - well that's what customer enquiries advised me. Out of interest, daveymoff, where did you find your one?
