Hi everyone,

I am after a bog standard no frills 3D tv to use in the spare bedroom. I am not worried about naff viewing angles as the tv will be placed opposite the bed, so will be viewed at one angle for basic use for either football if the better half is hogging the main tv, or to watch films 2D & 3D. Because of the size of the room and the distance between the bed & aerial point, ideally the set cannot be smaller than say 23" or bigger than 32".

I cannot afford the top notch set & don't need to as it is for use whilst in bed. I understand that Passive 3D has a reduced res when compared to other types of 3D, but as long as the 3D is viewable, then that is all I need.

I have been looking at 3 sets but was wondering if anybody here has had experiences with any of them recently. I kn ow that they are cheap but I am on a budget & just want something that will do the job for the basic use I need it for, so don't really want to go above say 250.

LG DM2352D

Finlux 26F7030

Celcus LCD329032

If anyone can advise here then that would be great or if there is a make around the same cost that I have missed, then I am all ears.

Out of those three LG is the 'best' make, it's a middling sort of quality manufacturer, the other two are the absolute 'bottom end' of quality

Thanks for the reply, I have been doing some reading up on Hot UK deals on the Celcus & it looks as though the panel is an LG. For the money people who have bought it have said that the picture quality is excellent for the price & the main downfall is a slight buzzing sound from the set, but isn't too overpowering.

It doesn't really matter who makes the panel, that's only one component in a TV - and there are numerous different grades of panels as well.

The same TV models also commonly use different panels as well, so just because one specific example used an LG panel doesn't mean a second one does.

Certainly a Celcus set using an LG panel isn't a 'plus point' in any way.

Good point I had never thought of it like that, looks as tho the LG is the winner. After doing loads of research, the Samsung 32" with Active 3D does look tempting at 299, but the only flaw is the heavy glasses & think that I will have to pop into Richer Sounds & have a try of both.
