What is the best 3D HDTV to buy in 2012?

Michael Gr

I'm in the market for a new 3D HDTV but I'm not sure what brand to look for. I would appreciate any recomendations that I get.

the best is panasonic 3d tv's they win more wards for there tv's in the past 3 years than any other company

so the guy below me does NOT recommend a 3D tv due to it has brilliant quality 2d picture better than a normal 2d tv and be able to watch a 3D blu-ray film

dont listen to that guy below me,, he probably thinks you have to watch tv with the glasses on

Which 55" hdtv has the best picture quality and which has the best sound quality?


Best picture is a tricky question to answer. Everyones perception of a good picture is very different. I can vouch for Samsung and Panasonic.

Samsung UE55ES8000 is a fantastic set, just been superseeded by the UE55F8000 but you can now get a great deal on last years set. It is a 3D capable LED edgelit LCD screen with a great wealth of SMART features and has so many connectivity options. What's more is that it looks amazing when wallmounted, thanks to an ultra slim bezel around the outside. All pictures are extremely clear even regular SD and even internet content.

Panasonic TXP55GT50/VT50 would be the preferred choice for the movie and sport lover. Its a Plasma screen co-developed with the boffins at Pioneer and THX. Plasmas are naturally better at producing better contrast as well as more life-like colour and superior motion handling. Plasmas do cost a bit more to run than LCD based sets and ideally, they perform better in a dark room. The only notable difference performance wise between the GT and VT model is that the VT has an infinite black filter in front of the screen to further improve the blackiness of the.....blacks :)

Sound quality wise all TV's are going to be poor. The UE55F8000 has supposedly improved sound quality, as it has a small bass speaker. But as its so slim, i'm not holding my breath. You are definitly better off with a soundbar or external speakers.

Best Soundbars for the money:

OrbitSound T12V3 £299.99 RRP - Wired Subwoofer has an iPod dock intergrated on the top of the soundbar.

Panasonic SCHTB550 £399.99 RRP - Wireless subwoofer, the soundbar can either be as one long speaker or split into 2 to form a 2.1 speaker configuration.

Sonos Play:Bar £599.99 RRP - Not cheap but if you already have a Sonos system, this is a great addition. Plus you don't HAVE to have a subwoofer if you don't need it. The SUB is a £599 option at the moment in Gloss Black.
