Is this the same model as John Lewis - johnlewis.com/230…spx ??

If so, this is Hot! PLUS you can get them to price match and get 5 year warranty

EDIT

OR it could be this one from Viking Direct - viking-direct.co.uk/cat…H24

and therefore be very Cold

I don't know why Argos haven't put down the model number

If that is with the 3D Tech built in that will work with cheapy free green/blue and red glasses that is a good price (compared to rivals) however if it just has 3D Glasses ports you could be spending £100+ per synced/connected-to-TV 3D Glasses, check model number on avforums/samsung etc.

And even at this price, with 3d hd ready, it still has a normal freeview tuner built in. :roll:

(And not freeview hd/ freesat hd)

I bet you half the 3DTVs in UK stock right now aren't FreeviewHD.

With over 99% of normal HDTVs in UK not being FreeviewHD, that's how new it is hardware/manufacturing wise.

With two channels (]BBC HD and ]ITV1 HD), Freeview HD completed a "technical launch" on 2 December 2009 from ]Crystal Palace and ]Winter Hill and operates on multiplex BBC B (aka Multiplex B or PSB3) from that date in regions that switched-over on or after that date, with the service coming to all regions by the end of 2012.][4]]Channel 4 HD commenced test broadcasts on 25 March 2010 with an animated caption, ahead of its full launch on 30 March 2010, coinciding with the commercial launch of Freeview HD.][5]][6]]S4C Clirlun will launch on 30 April 2010 in Wales, where Channel 4 HD will not broadcast.][7] A HD version of ]STV will launch in Scotland, where ITV1 HD will not broadcast, ahead of the ]2010 FIFA World Cup.][8]

FreeviewHD has two whole channels... LOL
I assumed for a long time that analogue going off means more channels, but the spectrum is just being sold off instead, whether FreeviewHD will actually expands to come anywhere near close to Cable/Sky 20+ channels, I've no idea.

Maybe but ]Sony seem to have the right idea.

I'll wait a few years and see how the technology developes before I take the plunge, unless of course, there is a huge misprice posted by a HUKDealer. :thumbsup:

LED has a premium, 3D has a huge one (especially if the tech is built into the tv rather than pricey sync 3DGlasses).

I'm on the fence waiting for a VERY good deal on normal LCD or for LED to possibly fall but as I have a HDTV already, albeit a few years old, I'm not in a big rush.

Also come 2012, Sky's reaction to FreeviewHD takeup will be interesting.

Be carefull out there guys and girls there are 4 formats of 3D technology trying to get you to buy there version, Sony and Panasonic use one, Sky and Philips use another then there is one for Sharp and one for LG. The types are Parallax barrier, Lenticular lenses,Polarised glasses and Active glasses.
Other's are selling 3D tv's but not sure which format of the above they use, for me it is too early for 3D, best to let the dust settle a bit !

Sony and Panasonic are already miles ahead of the competition in terms of high quality TVs, as well as the fact that Sony have blu-ray on their side (not actually sure if that makes much of a difference though?).

Either way I'll wait a few years untill the 3D format itself fails and hopefully there will be actual LED TVs out by then.

When you say LED, I take it you mean OLED. The 'O' stands for organic and the picture is meant to be top notch. As far as I know you can get them but only in small screen sizes and they cost loads!!!!

LED is new & superior way of backlighting LCDs, as you say OLED at this size would cost tens of thousands at consumer production level, as a prototype cost more than your house.

Wow the thraed is 4 hours old and peggy has'nt been in to troll YET,

Good price for this set, but far to early for me to be buying into 3d

Yup thats what I mean :thumbsup:

From what I've seen of the yet to be released OLED TVs, the picture quality looks nothing short of spectacular.

I tried out 3D TVs from Sony, Panasonic, Samsung and LG at the new Best Buy store yesterday and I have to say both the Panasonic and Sony are miles better than the Samsung and LG.
I know that they all use different technologies and that's the reason so I would say if you're going to buy one, then either get a Sony or Panasonic.
The Samsung and LG 3D effect was not perfect, strained the eyes too much and looked more like a popup book effect.
However, the Sony and Panasonic 3D effect was jaw dropping. I didn't feel like my eyes were straining at all to see the picture and could quite happily have stayed watching them all day. The 3D effects on the Sony and Panasonic were extremely realistic, i.e. it looked like you could reach out and touch whatever was on the screen, it didn't look like fake 3D like the Samsung and LG did.
I think a lot of the 3D haters may have just seen the cheaper technology that Samsung and LG were displaying. Once they see the Sony or Panasonic demo, they will be convinced that 3D is definitely a step in the right direction!

You also have to bear in mind how much 3D use will it actually get considering the very little content right now.

If it's mostly 2D foreseeable use that should be the prime concern in my opinion.

stone cold . and does it even come with any glasses? and to the 1st poster. this is the lcd model the john lewis one is 'led'

I'm in the UK and just bought the 50 inch Samsung 3D set for £1600 from Comet. On pre-order I paid £200 for two pairs of 'active shutter' glasses too...

A week before delivery, I received a nice refund - the glasses at launch had already fallen to £60 per pair...

The TV is a plasma and it is spectacular, even leaving aside the 3D - the picture quality on SKY HD is STUNNING

So, why buy a 3D? Well for me the decision was made easy by owning a PS3 - new games will be in 3D soon (4 are already been given away with Sony TVs). As well as the games, the PS3 is to receive a firmware update in October that will allow the machine to play 3D blueray movies...

The 3D movies were £60 on pre-order, but we're already down to £29.99 on launch day. As it is 'new technology', I future-proofed by adding a 5yr guarantee.....

Given that my 3D is SKY compatible and they are not going bust anytime soon, I have a great TV, with a 5 yr guarantee for not much of a premium on an ordinary 2D set...

Oh, and the 3D quality? It saddens me that some folk still think that we're talking about the old cardboard 3d glasses with red and blue lenses. What I've got is two pairs of VERY funky glasses that would look cool if I was wearing them outdoors shopping. The 3D effect is astonishing. I wandered if I'd even be able to tell - I switched on the glasses, then the SKY 3D preview channel...The SKY logo came out of the screen. I paused the TV to admire it. I then unpaused and the logo kept coming - the 3D effect and level of depth was astonishing and of the standard seen in recent 3D cinema movies

In the middle of a recession it's hard to argue that folk should go and buy a 3D telly. BUT, if you need a new TV, paying a little extra for 3D built-in makes absolute sense. It IS going to be massive and will be mainstream in two years (a recent analyst says 1/2 of all game released will be 3D within 24 months) - buy one now and future-proof, or get one in a couple of years?

You're not actually going to have a choice! Just as all TV nows are 'HD ready', all TVs built soon enough will be '3D ready'

I hear a lot of folk saying this is a fad, it's failed before, I get headaches, you need perfect eyes, the glasses are too dear etc etc. I don't know of ANYONE who has seen one in action who believes it is a fad..

So hot is hurts

£1200 for a 40 inch LCD. Bargain.

Sorry, but I have had my wallet burned too many times as an 'early-adopter' and will wait another 3 years. Anyway, 3D is rubbish even if it's 'good'.

If it's the same as this one at Amazon (which it looks to be) then no amazon.co.uk/Sam…8-5

But then again, it could be more expensive at Argos because it does come with glasses.

yeh ive been a bit wary of prices due to whether glasses are included or not but i dont think they are as they would have written in the description that they are. its there way of making profit and then the person buying it assuming theres glasses in there realises theres none.

If there aren't any glasses with the Argos one then the better deal is with Amazon

The only 3D Blu-Ray is Monsters Vs. Aliens. It's a quality TV even without the 3D, but you're paying a premium for a feature that has virtually no content available to show it off. I don't think that 3D is going to take off in the way you think it is, but either way, you're better off just waiting IMO, at least until there's some decent content that makes it worthwhile and by then the prices of the TVs will have gone down (and there will be better TVs too).

Exactly. It's not exactly 'MUST HAVE' technology. Once the novelty has worn off and glasses are sat on maybe a single format will be reached. Till then people will pay twice the amount for their TVs to watch one channel and tell everyone it's the mutts. Would anyone pay 2 grand for a set up that has no content and tell you it was bad? Of course not, what would that make them seem?

Anyway, how did this deal get so hot? Cheaper elsewhere...

EDIT: £919 from Dixons using the code 'FIVETV'.

Cold for me due to price and the fact that there is no one 3D format out of the 3 or 4 on offer settled on as of yet.

posting about something you know nothing about is dangerous.

once and for all - THERE IS NO BLOODY FORMAT WAR WITH 3D.

its like saying you cant watch a certain film on a LCD tv but rather you have to use a plasma set.

there are 2 technologies passive and active and each system is compatible with the other.

and dont bother mentioning glasses free TV
