Samsung LE40C750 3D Television Drops To Under £875

Prices of 3D Television sets continue to plummet even during the World cup with Dixons now selling the Samsung LE40C750 model for as low as £837.05 including delivery, a far cry from the £2000 or so that the first 3D television sets initially commanded.

Although it is a 40-inch Full HD model and uses LCD rather than LED technology, the LE40C750 still manages to boost some impressive specifications. Samsung has managed to integrate some nifty hardware that allows normal TV broadcasts to be converted into 3D which, while not perfect, is still of acceptable quality.

It comes with a pair of speakers, four HDMI, two USB, LAN, SCART, Component, VGA and PC Audio In ports amongst others plus it has a Freeview HD tuner. Amongst other highlights, the LE40C750 allows users to stream internet content from BBC's iPlayer, Youtube and Lovefilm through the Internet@tv feature.

The television set is also capable of recording content to a removable storage device and Samsung claims that the 200Hz technology will help eliminate blurring.

You can buy the set here (opens in new tab) and you will need to use the voucher code TV899 to get 5 per cent off the listed price.

Bear in mind that you will need to buy active shutter glasses with the screen. These are currently worth around £60 and it will also be advisable to get a 3D Blu-ray player as well. Samsung's own model costs around £260.
