Dixons rolls out cut-price 3D, smart TVs

Passive 3D for cheap specs

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Dixons has launched its own brand of 3D TV, Logik, with the hope of encouraging consumers lacking confidence back into the shops with low prices.

Logik sets run to 32in, 42in and 47in in size, each available with fluorescent or LED backlighting, all with 1080p screens. LED ups price by £50 to £150, depending on the model.

All the sets use passive 3D, so you can use cheap cinema-use 3D glasses - each telly comes with ten pairs.

Prices run from £349 (32in, fluoro backlight) to £799 (47in, LED backlight).

Not interested in 3D? Then Dixons has the Logik Smart TV, a 23in, 1080p set with a USB port to which you can hook up a hard drive to record programmes. The £250 telly will also tap into BBC iPlayer, Lovefilm and YouTube.

Dixons' Logik sets are available from its PC World and Currys shops. ®
