Led 50" TV 3d for hd dvds


Novice Member
Hi everyone I'm knew to this forum and would appreciate any advice going. I've just bought my first home and I have a budget of £800 for a tv ideally around 50" with 3d if possible mainly I watch blue rays. Hope this is enough info.

And thanks in advance for any help :)

I would take a look at the Sony 50w829 it should cost around 800. It is a 2014 model with awesome picture quality, deep blacks and low input lag. It has active 3d and may not be the best 3d tv around (but it's still fine for 3d) but it probably has the best 2d picture quality you can get for the money.

I don't know how much you value 3d, but if that's very important to you I would probably look at a tv with passive 3d. Something like the lg 860w/790W, these TVs are also great overall but don't have deep blacks of a TV like the w829 which leads to a lower contrast and maybe abit less immersive 2d experience especially in lowlight.
