Nifty.

I just spent 400 on a fantastic LG tv, but if I had known of this deal, I would have went for it!

Looks awesome nice find!

Are you associated to tvbargains? Is it your site?
You refer back to them in every tv deal you post.

Excellent deal. I still have a W2000 Series 40" Bravia with another 1.5 years on the warranty so will probably wait till next Christmas to get a new tv and by that time hopefully I can nab a 50" LCD 3DTV for around the £600 mark.

Another good deal on this tv from best buy:

hotukdeals.com/dea…295

£100 more for bluray player & extra pair of 3d glasses.

ooh, thanks for this!

Had one of these, rubbish blacks, contrast, suffered spotlight effect and led bleed, glasses where not comfortable

Good price, although you need to change the picture as this tv is not full LED, only edge.

love this tv nice for the price 3D well not a big fan but the TV is good xbox 360 and ps3 both look good on this and also have a HD-dvd player yup i know old teck but still looks a good pic on this

thanks for the post

I own this tv.... And its a cracking piece of kit, great picture after a few tweaks.... Xbox also plays well on this with no noticeable lag. 3d is ok! And its super thin.

Is this going to be the next betamax/hd-dvd equivalent for 3D tv tech?
Because am i right to assume that LG are the only firm employing the active tech whereas all the others are employing passive tech?
Still great price for a 3D tv. Heat Added

I believe LG make both types of sets. It should be noted LG supply sets to Sky who clearly require the passive technology. Therefore one could question if that is the reason they are the only ones pursuing passive tech for home use.

i thought somebody would have jumped on this and shot it down by now as they always seem to start giving it all the non sense.

Seems like a good deal to me, still waiting on someone to say get a sony blah blah for £500 more. At this price it is a baragin for somebody who fancy's a bit of 3d now and then and isnt hell bent on spending all of their money and time indoors watching a system worth a couple of grand

what makes you think sky needs active technology,it wont matter weather your tv is active or passive it makes no difference the signal going in to your tv if its from sky,bluray,ps3 or whatever the 3D still works active and passive is personal preference and cost

Whats the difference between passive and active tech?

Gonna wait and possibly get one of the new passive LG sets in a few months just in case the kids sit on a pair of glasses which would the only cost a £1 or so to replace

OMG these are getting very cheap. I'd almost be tempted but there is still hardly any 3D content out there, and the technology hasn't settled into an agreed standard. Still, a fantastic deal for a quality 42" telly, 3D or not.

Actually see also:
hotukdeals.com/dea…295

for the same TV with two 3D glasses and a 3D blu-ray player for an extra £100.

So tempted with this.

LG is a Pac-Man !

I think Sony and Samsung are interested in Passive. Sony may have an LG passive panel next year.
I don't like the 540 resolution of passive but then there are no side effects.


Passive 3D is ****, great the glasses are cheap and nicer to wear than active ones but due to the passive technology you only get 960 horizontal lines of pixels per eye so it's technically not full HD when watching 3D content, plus it only works with Sky 3D (and the Sky 3D channel isn't even HD lol) not bluray players or games consoles afaik.

Wait for Samsung to bring out the actively polarised sets they are developing with RealD, same cheap £1 glasses except the screen is polarised actively (the same way the cinema is done currently) so you get a full HD image per eye.

the passive takes it up the rear socket

Bought this for £650 about a month ago, thought it was a good deal then! only wish i had waited! Although at least as i have it now, i can watch tonights Champions League final in 3D!! And i must say that the TV is simply beautiful and a very good purchase! worth much more than 650 or 500!!!

the reviews on this are not amazing for the 3D side of things, voted Hot for the deal though

ooh, thanks for this!

3D TV. I'm not impressed with what I've seen so far. The picture quality generally looks worse. Many people suffer headaches and nausea from watching it. Now that flat-screens have reached near saturation-point, the manufacturers need to push something else to keep people buying new goods.

If you have a decent TV already, I'd wait for glasses-free 3D, and hope they've ironed out the glitches properly, or at least make sure you're comfortable wearing the glasses and don't suffer from 3D sickness.

Just my tuppence worth - I'm sure this subject has been done to death already.

I have had this telly for over a month now and have watched Despicable Me 3D blu ray, Pirahna 3D blu ray and the FA Cup Final in 3D and have played COD Black Ops, Killzone 3 and Motorstorm Apocalypse in 3D - I am the average bloke who likes my gadgets and i was impressed with the 3D element of the telly - on the off occasion i can spot some ghosting, but it in no way substantially effects my enjoyment of the movie/game.

I actually love playing games in 3D, more so than watching a 3D movie, it really involves you in the game - so if any one is buying this TV, pick up one or 2 of the mentioned games, it really is a new experience!!

Are you sure this ONLY works with sky? I didn't think that was the case????

went to view this at bestbuy today, 3d is terrible, ghosting everywhere, looks like theres 2 of everything!

Well thanks for posting this, I went out yesterday to the bg retailers and no ne had the unit or it was too expensive, I even went to betsbuy in MerryHill and ther's was £1299 so sat down in bestbuy and orderd it from Amazon on my Iphone .
It will be here next week

Any where cheap to buy the glasses?

Whats the difference between passive and active tech?



Since no has answered you I'll have a go but I bet someone with more knowledge will correct/update on this: basically, active tech has shutter glasses, powered ones that have to sync with your screen. Each lens is a screen that is alternately going open (off)/shut (dark)/open etc. so each eye only sees the image meant for them.

Passive ones are like in the cinema, just cheap polarised ones, no power. Hence those glasses are cheaper. You can probably just use ones you've already bought at a cinema, I don't know if all passive screens are universally compatible though.

Interesting comment above about passive screens reducing the resolution. I guess that must be true. Active ones half the screen refresh rate, less of a problem now but I used to have an nVidia pair with a CRT monitor 7 years ago for PC gaming and that brough the refresh rate down to 30fps. Still bloody awesome though and that was then.

Hope that helps.

I can never look at the LG logo the same again.

Anyone got the item and fancy posting opinions? Passive has a massive problem that technology cannot currently get around - people. Passive 3D is offloading more of the "work" in seeing the image to your eyes. Active use technology to avoid this. The 3DS is a form of passive 3D hence the problems many people have with it.

did any one ever find the way into the service menu ?
