After careful consideration and thought, our family chose to purchase a 3D TV. We popped along to our local comet to check out the range. We wanted to see the quality for ourselves before we bought it. This particular TV was on offer and we payed £999 for the TV along with a blue ray player and 2 sets of 3D glasses. Not a bad deal considering that a blue ray player is around £200 and the glasses are £60 a pair.
We had an in store demo of this product and were pleasantly surprised at how good it was! The picture quality is really sharp and the 3D function on this TV is, in my opinion, very similar to 3D movies i have seen at the Imax.
It is very easy to set up, but be warned - you need to purchase an extra cable for this so you get the best possible picture, and this cost us an extra £70. The TV pretty much takes you through the set up bit by bit and we had it up and running in a matter of 10 minutes.
The remote control is large and easy to use, it even lights up at night so you can see the buttons and if your watching a movie in the dark.
We bought a 3D movie to try out the 3D features on this TV and it was excellent, you actually felt as if the characters were coming out of the screen. We also have Sky 3D so my dad took great pleasure in watching the football on this TV and said it was fabulous.
The TV itself is very sleek in design and looks lovely and modern in our living room, I do believe you could hang it on the wall if you so wished.
The only drawback is the cost of the glasses, we got 2 pairs with the TV but in a family of 4 we ended up having to buy another 2 pairs at a cost of £120.
Overall I would definitely recommend this TV as it provides an excellent picture and sound quality, even if not using the 3D function all the time. For the first time we can actually see what all the fuss is about with regards to HD TV!
