Top 5 3D televisions for Christmas 2011
The close of the year is great time to grab a bargain, or at the very least plan which gadgets to buy when prices come down in the January sales. Today we’re looking at the best 3D televisions.
This year has seen 3D televisions soar in popularity, so there’s plenty of choice in stores to help plan your purchase. Here we pick out five of the best. Read on for our top 5 3D televisions.
The Panasonic TX-P46GT30 is another full HD plasma 3D television that, if you look in the right places can be found at costs lower than the recommended retail price. USB connections let you share photos with the Panasonic TX-P46GT30. And once more, four HDMI inputs offer plenty of connectivity options. Freeview HD also comes included, although you’ll still have to purchase your own compatible 3D glasses.
For around £1,300 this 46-inch Samsung 3D television isn’t what you’d call cheap but for its size and the 3D tech inside it, is worth checking out. It displays images in full high definition and comes with an integrated digital and Freesat Tuner and four HDMI ports leaving enough room to plug in a couple of games consoles and Blu-Ray player.
You won’t have to fork out for your own glasses here. The LG 42LW550T includes seven – not bad for a 42-inch HD 3D television that costs under a grand. USB recording, Freeview HD, internet TV capability, and a good 3D picture make this LG TV one of the better value televisions around.
Sony make some fantastic televisions. The Sony KDL-40NX713 is no exception. It offers a great picture and sound. Specs-wise you get a 40-inch full HD 3D LED television that uses Sony’s Bravia Engine 3 to deliver smooth, clean-looking pictures. Freeview HD comes included, as does internet TV with access to on-demand services such as BBC iPlayer. Look around and you’ll be able to pick up the Sony KDL-40NX713 for around £900 without the glasses.
The Panasonic TX-P42GT30 is the cheapest of our top five. Rummage around online and you’re sure to spot it for anything from £800-900. It’s an impressively specced full HD TV that performs well across the board in 2D and 3D. It comes with all the core features: Freeview, internet TV with access to BBC iPlayer and YouTube and four HDMI in ports. You’ll have to pay extra for the 3D glasses, but you’d be saving on the television itself anyway.
