Sony KDL-40HX723 3D LED backlit LCD TV

Sony KDL-40HX723 40in LED 3D TV

Review The KDL-40HX723 is a feature-heavy 40in Freeview HD TV from the posh end of Sony’s 2011 catalogue. While it sells for a tad more than a looky-likey from the brand’s bread and butter EX range, the premium is worth paying if you want to see what Sony’s picture boffins are really capable of.

Panasonic DMR-HW100 3D-compatible DVR

Panasonic DMR-HW100 HDD DVR

Review Panasonic returns to the UK DVR market after an abortive early foray, with a 3D-enabled, media-streaming TV recorder. Rather more convincing than the brand’s first generation model, the DMR-HW100 offers access to the online VieraCast portal, has jukebox functionality and is only slightly bonkers. Panasonic DMR-HW100 3D- …

Toshiba touts 55in 3DTV with beefy resolution

Toshiba promised Europeans will be able to buy a 55in, 3840 x 2160 LCD 3D TV by the end of the year, though Japanese consumers may be able to get it first. Toshiba today debuted the Regza 55X3, 55in LCD display that not only packs a resolution four times greater than our current 'full HD', but also throws in glasses-free 3D, …

ISS 'naut shoots first ever 3D footage in space

3D Vid The European Space Agency (ESA) is chuffed as ninepence to release the first ever 3D video shot in space. The vid, which can be viewed in all its glory using a 3D TV or conventional red/blue stereo specs, was shot by NASA astronaut Ron Garan aboard the International Space Station using a futuristic shoebox-sized camera developed …

The 24in active-shutter gaming 3D TV, first announced at E3 2011, brings with it a technology called "SimulView", allowing gamers to see two separate stereoscopic images, depending on which glasses they wear.

Sony VPL-HW30ES 3D projector

Review I’ve actually written several introductions to this review. One opened extolling the benefits of 3D projection over 3D TVs. I thoughtfully proposed that the key problem with 3D flatscreens is that they’re just too small - rather than confound and entrance you with 3D, they merely present you with a window and invite you to peer …

Cambridge Audio Azur 751BD 3D Blu-ray player

Review There’s a renaissance in audiophile grade Blu-ray players happening at the moment. Arcam’s exotic BDP100 got the ball rolling, and now the Oppo BDP-95EU, Marantz UD7006 and this here Cambridge Audio Azur 751BD are hot on its heels. 

I must confess to being excited. While I like cheap-as-chips electronics as much as the next guy …

Panasonic TX-P65VT30 3D TV

Panasonic TX-P65VT30 65in plasma 3D TV

Review There was a much-used gag in Warner Bros’ Road Runner cartoons, where Wile E. Coyote would paint a tunnel and road onto a cliff face – and then watch in confusion as a truck drove through it. This 65in Panasonic plasma creates a similar illusion. Its pictures are so large and sharp it’s easy to be convinced of their reality. …

JVC Everio GS-TD1 3D camcorder

JVC Everio GS-TD1 3D camcorder

Review Let’s cut to the chase: JVC’s £1,600 GS-TD1 is the most sophisticated 3D camcorder you can buy. While Panasonic may have pioneered DIY 3D moviemaking with its bolt-on 3D accessory lens, this is the first stereoscopic shooter aimed squarely at the pro-sumer. It’s been unabashedly built for 3D from the ground up. JVC Everio GS- …

Panasonic DMP-BDT310 Blu-ray player

Review When it comes to raw performance in the mainstream Blu-ray market, Panasonic is a force to be reckoned with. The brand has consistently pushed the envelope in terms of picture quality. However, during 2010 it fell behind some of its high street rivals when it came to features and functionality. It's a situation Panasonic has …

Panasonic TX-L37D30

Panasonic TX-L37DT30 37in 3D LED backlit TV

Review The introduction of 3D-ready LCD TVs marks a major policy shift for Panasonic. The brand has been a vociferous advocate of plasma tech for 3D, yet now it’s hawking a pair of LED backlit 3D screens, a 32in model and the 37incher featured here. The justification, the company will tell you, is to provide a smaller Active Shutter …

LG uncloaks six-foot 3D TV

At next week's Consumer Electronics Show, LG Electronics will unveil its biggest, bestest, baddest (the street definition of "bad", that is) 3D TV: the 72-inch LZ9700. LG Electronics LX9700 3D TV not catching on? How about a really, really big 3D TV, then? Although 3D TV has not become the must-have tech that its champions …

3D TV: Avatar or Ishtar?

Heads or Fails We've seen plenty of forecasts predicting how many 3D TVs will be sold in the coming years - the latest, from UK-based IMS Research, puts the total at 218m shipped by the end of 2015 - but none that show that punters want or will use the technoology. As we reported recently, there have been small spending surges in the US and …

John Lewis flogs first 3D TV

There you go, John Lewis - the Oxford Street branch, naturally - has sold its first 3D TV set. This is what the buyer, biz consultant Matt Rajah (28) has to say for himself. "I have been waiting for this for a long time, there's lots of exciting 3D content on the way, and it's set to be the TV of the future. It's more money …

Avatar expands 3D TV interest

Hit movie Avatar appears to be persuading punters - in the US, at least - that it might soon be possible to view 3D films on TV at home. Whether it will convince them to buy into the notion is another matter. Electronics price-comparison site Retrevo said yesterday that while a mere 39 per cent of consumers were aware of 3D TV …

3D TV gets cold shower from Avatar man

CES 2010 Judging by the avalanche of hoopla thundering out of last week's Consumer Electronics Show, you'd think that 3D television is done deal. All the wrinkles have been ironed out, and all you need to do is don a pair of geeky glasses and your boob tube will immerse you in three-dimensional movies, sports, and reruns of "The Office …
