Going down the Samsung 3D route

My current setup is

Samsung BD-P1500
Samsung HT-TZ215 Home Cinema System
Samsung LE40A556P LCD Television

I will be keeping the home cinema but not the tv and Blu ray as its not 3d ready.

Main use of the Tv is blu rays and The connection to my pc via XMBC media centre so mostly films in HD And TV series, i do own an xbox but only gets used now and then.

Also own a galaxy S3 so if i can find one that can be controled via my phone even better.

Budget is £500 and needs to be samsung like all my other products.

the ones i have found are below not sure which to get.

1:
43-inch E490 Series 4 1024 x 768 Plasma TV | PS43E490B1 - Samsung UK - FEATURES

2:
40-inch D6100 Series 6 Smart 3D Full HD 1080p LED TV | UE40D6100SK - Samsung UK - OVERVIEW

3:
40-inch EH6030 Series 6 3D Full HD 1080p LED TV | UE32EH6030 - Samsung UK - OVERVIEW

The fact i have to buy a new bluray player means the smart hub isnt that important as i can get apps via xmbc and or the new blu ray player

Ive had a read and i can see the problem if you think your getting full HD and your not but i still think its better then no 3d support all together.

The main reason i am upgrading is because of the 3d feature to tell you the truth. I just cant make my mind up which one of these 3 TVs will have the best picture

By what ive read the C series 3d isnt great at all.

Well I wouldn't choose any of them, zero interest in 3D. I would probably choose the D7000 on looks alone!

I think Panasonic plasmas are good for 3D, although other failings - can you find a 42GT30 somewhere maybe? Or how much is the 42UT50 now?

as much as i would like a d7000 its not within the £500 mark, and as good as other brands are im staying with samsung as everything else i own is more or less samsung.

3D is a must otherwise i wouldnt really be upgrading as my current Tv does the job

one basic reason is the remote's all work together as one, two because lame but it looks nice all the same brand and im also loyal to samsung which isnt always a good thing

so is it not the case that a never model is always better?
the LE40C750 and the newer UE40ES6300 or 6100 look more or less the same on paper from what i can see other then one is internet based the other is SMART

The 40C750 is CCFL LCD and not LED edgelit - so less chance of backlight bleed (but not impossible)

It depends if you want new with a proper warranty and protection of SOGA. Unfortunately, your budget is low for a high end model and the Samsung only requirement restricts you further

I don't think the actual tech has a great impact, more the cost and make

I have the 2D version of the C750 -very good TV but the viewing angles aren't great and I certainly have clouding on a plain dark screen

The hz figure is just marketing w***y waving in the real world - just processing, which if you game adds lag and if you watch TV or films causes the soap opera effect so you'll just switch it off
