Thanks for the update

Should anyone wish to have this TV in 2D, print out the following image. Hey presto, a 2D TV!

P.S - I cannot guarantee this 2D model will switch on and display images other than that which it is printed with.
Glad it's got a SCART socket!
I bought this tv for my parents just before Christmas cant fault it for the money. It is 3D BUT it does not come with 3d glasses and its an active 3D TV so the glasses are more expensive but can be had on ebay for about £15.

Was thinking exactly same. Mine is the ps50c680. Picture is still perfect but this looks a lot of tv for very little money.

Do you have a link by any chance for the glasses at £15 please ?
I was gonna go for this but there seems to be a big issue concerning the 3D glasses and which are compatible.

Response time - 8milliseconds...would this be good for sport and gaming just as I'm led to believe that the greater the response time greater the lag ??!!
Is this 100% 3D as not stipulated in description anywhere?
I have got a 3d tv but no clue how to use it, and the picture is terrible - not relative to the thread but voted hot.
I have an Active 3D TV and I can't be bothered watching it. Everything goes dark and the colours are dulled to the point you feel like you are missing out.

I really doubt and the way they quote the 8ms it only means grey to grey, still not sure how does affect in game especially for pc use. Called Toshiba, they say that because they do not build this tv we should ask argos. I really doubt argos knows what we are talking about. Worth a try at this price provided that it would work with the pc at 4k@60hz 4-4-4 chroma If it does not then I consider it is another useless 4ktv like many others as I really doubt that it would do a so so upscaling, not even the top one are as good as normal 1080p TV's for displaying sd and hd contents. Can someone confirm if this tv is restricted to 4k 60hz 4-2-0 chroma?? or can it do a proper 3840x2160@6ohz 4-4-4 chroma? obviously it needs a proper suitable GPU for that like nvidia gtx 970 etc...
Looks like a decent enough TV for the money, I had reserved one, but looking deeper into the reviews I won't be picking it up, if the 3D was any good I would buy it, so will just have to keep looking.
Would this be a good replacement for my now oldish Pioneer Kuro TV?

I never been a fan of plasmas as they do not display a sharp picture like the lcd's, then I would say yes but saying so I got a lot of doubts about this set which is not even made by Toshiba. In my case I would only use it for PC purposes but still very unsure if will display 4k@60hz 4-4-4 chroma

In a word no, you bought the best "in its day" why not search the reviews and buy the best now?
Cheapest does unfortunately not equal best.
Cheapest equals I cannot sell it so I will reduce the price

Pioneer Kuro - the best Plasma money could buy at its time, that and the Panasonic Viera PZ800 (46" version) like I own. Still a superb picture that has black blacks and a picture to behold!!!

Does anyone know of a decent 3D tv for around this price, wanted to post my own ?, but hukd posting page isn't working for me right now.

What like this 3D TV, if someone knew of one they would probably post it themselves.
I have always considered Toshiba to be a quality tv brand, having had a couple of their original 32" wide-screen sets back in the day. Like a lot of others, we went with Samsung when buying our first hd tv, but went back to Tosh when replacing our original (9 years old) 40" Sammy in our "good room" a while back. It is a 40" smart set we bought from Tesco.Com for £280 and the picture is mostly good with hd material. But any quibbles we have could possibly be down to our Virgin Media hd box only outputting 1080i as opposed to full HD. Overall, the quality and wealth of features seemed good for the price at the time. But now they are selling a 48", 4K, active 3D model for £399? It's gotta be a no-brainer. Have some heat OP.
We are on the sniff for a new TV. Big netflix fans, so I guess we need a smart TV for that , or am I wrong ?

I read things like "you want a TV where black is black" not sure what this means?
And "you need 3 HDMI minimum, more the merrier"
And "a tv that is 5ms or better" another one I read a lot.

So is there a TV out there, that does the above ? I guess there is, but I am scared that the answer is "Yes, and its £5000"... GULP !!

Also, LED or LCD, what the hecks the difference ? HELP

No, not like this one. As it appears the 3D doesn't rate well or doesn't work,

​oh dear...
Picture quality is awesome - Full HD and 4K video(HEVC videos from hdd or usb working perfect). SD is SD, so You can watch, but looks poor. Just few good smart app, and a lot of useless. In Argos description I saw Miracast, but i don't know how to turn it on TV? Anybody know?
Hubby just collected, does not have good apps and can't add certain apps like itv, demand 5 etc all right for the bedroom for the money
