In general, one may expect that a television set with the new 3D technology will cost quite a hefty amount. Moreover they are also equipped with the latest technologies available in the world and of course in terms of the appearance they certainly have an edge over the other televisions. However this whole new view point may change as the new Cello C42T71DVB 3D TV has recently been introduced in the market. This new TV is priced only at £450. While trying to find out the reason behind the low price of this television one may notice that some of the specifications are not up to the mark. For example, even though the pictures are of HD quality they do not follow a pixel to pixel ratio setting. In spite of all these it must be said that this new TV is quite worth its buy.
The set uses the passive 3D technology. One may find that are much brighter and more colourful in this case. The TV comes with as much as four 3D glasses and it is quite relaxing to watch with the help of the passive technology. But there are evidences of crosstalks in the pictures. The resolution of the HD pictures may be slightly low but it is obviously better than the normal definition pictures generally found in other TVs. The screen is of 42 inches and it is advantageous because of the fact that it covers up the some of the problems faced due to the passive technology. The standard definition of the TV may not also look that impressive as the colour tones tend to cause some problems.
However the lack of a Freeview HD tuner may make the users stay satisfied with the standard definition even though it has some clear problems with its colour tones. The remote may not seem to be that sensitive when it comes to picking up transmissions. There are two HDMI ports and a USB port but no provision for an online facility. The USB port supports numerous formats such as WAV, MP3, AVI, WMA, etc. one amazing feature of this TV is the availability of video recordings from the USB itself. These recordings can even be played on other machines as long as it supports the .ts file format. The sound of the TV is not that perfect as well. Finally this is certainly a decent TV as the 3D facility is quite respectable and the cheaper price will surely attract customers despite some of the drawbacks.
