Currys punts cut-price 3D TV pack for Xmas
50in telly, specs, player all for under a grand
Do you want a 3D TV but find yourself put off by the price? Dixons-owned chain Currys has announced a 50in set fo a penny less than a grand.
The set in question is the Samsung plasma PS50C680 and comes with a 3D-capable Blu-ray Disc player and two pairs of 3D glasses.
Currys waved aside claims that there's just nothing to watch on 3D tellies, pointing to Sky's new 3D channel and the fact that three 3D BDs are now available to buy in the shops. Toy Story 3, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs and Final Destination: Death Trip, since you ask.
"The Samsung 50C680 also future-proofs existing DVD collections, as the 1080p picture technology upscales DVDs to HD quality, meaning our customers won't have to replace their entire DVD collection with Blu-rays," the retailer chirped. We don't, surely, have to point out the flaw in that claim.
Currys' cut-price 3D TV bundle is available now. ®
I love Currys
They give me the opportunity to touch, feel and try out goods before I order them online for 30% less.
nearly the correct phrase.
I've bought one...
Very pleased with this setup, worth mentioning that this isn't the telly pictured in the article, and that they come with the more attractive chrome four-legged stand.
I've yet to be able to confirm if it actually has got a Freeview HD tuner yet (did have the blurb in the box), as I am currently pointing at a non upgraded mast.
Comes with absolutely no 3D content whatsoever, but will playback mkv files downloaded off the net. The pseudo 3D emulation is pretty impressive.
Also a lot cheaper than the offering from BestBuy: http://www.bestbuy.co.uk/page/custom.aspx?PageName=Best%20Buy%20in-store%20deals
