£3,495 Toshiba 55ZL2B 55in Quad HD Ultra HD Glasses-Free 3D Smart LED TV

Online retailer 123AV is selling the Toshiba 55ZL2B television set for £3,495 excluding delivery. This is the cheapest Quad HD television in the UK and comes with glasses-free 3D capabilities as well. The latter uses viewer position tracking.

The television was launched in July last year with a price tag nearer to £10,000 (it was on sale for £7,000 in October). 123 says that it is a refurbished set but comes with three-year warranty included.

It has a 3,840 x 2,160 resolution (hence the term quad HD), which provides with a resolution of more than eight megapixels, on a 55in diagonal. Other features include Wi-Fi, Freeview HD, a multi-core processing unit called CEVO that upscales content, a 400Hz refresh rate and a 9m:1 contrast ratio.

The 55ZL2B can record to an external USB hard disk drive (although we’re not sure whether you can shove in a hard drive bigger than 2TB). As for connectivity, you have two USB ports, four HDMI, two SCART and PC-input.

Toshiba has also bundled the AMR800 picture processing technology as well as its own “Places” online media portal with this exceptional television set.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
