      [NBA] EcoStar CX-42L520 3D LCD TV

      Greetings

      I have been thinking of getting a big LCD television display for standard (Non-HD) cable viewing purposes. Only just recently, it occurred to me that if I am to get such a big display why not make use of it with the PlayStation 3 and then the thought of 3D followed immediately after that.

      Now that I reviewed prices of 40-42 inches LCD 3DTVs, I just couldn't feel sorry for myself for being restricted with a rather meagre budget of Rs. 70000. That's when I noticed EcoStar CX-42L520 3D LCD TV on Shophive: EcoStar CX-42L520 3D price in pakistan

      Now then, we know SONY and Samsung and LG are pretty well known for their 3D displays for a long time now but I am just not too sure about the quality and service of Ecostar to be honest.It's cheap alright, but is the 3D and Full HD that it boasts really worth all the viewing with those 3D games on PS3 and would it really prove to be the right bang for buck? How good is the picture quality and sound AND more importantly the 3D visuals? Do they really match standards set by the other renowned players in the market?

      Regarding cable, I am kind of unsure if a FULL HD and FULL 3d display such as this would be good for standard cable viewing. I have seen many lcd/led tvs that make standard cable look terrible (don't know the reason). There are a few that make characters on screen look way too small, thanks to those black borders on the edges and also at times the standard cable appears way too hazy and messed up (dont really know why).

      Sigh! I do really wish this display from Ecostar can do the job for me, in terms of cable viewing, as well as FULL HD and FULL 3D PS3 gameplay.

      I would highly appreciate advices from all.

      Thanks.

      PS: Let me stress that the budget is Rs. 70000, and that's all I have.

      3d is very premature --sorry if any one does not agree -- i wont recommend it --even if cheaper --depends how badly u wana go that way --to date only animation are strong in 3d --

      avatar they said has good 3d i paid top money for it --but sorry some how the effects were not that good ----

      eco star is a decent brand ---i would advise get there led rather then there 3d .

      i would agree with @avenger....the 3d technology just doesnt appeal to be that good..as the pose it is..
      its more of a hype then to actually use it in real life terms...
      led is more efficient and better....in viewing...
      thats my personal view...cant say about the rest..
      now the rest is upto to decide...bro..!!!

      Hmm, is it not a good long-term investment?

      I mean, if you do agree that Ecostar is good, then having a display that boasts FULL HD as well as FULL 3D is a good idea, no? I mean, even if the 3D doesn't fully satisfy there's FULL HD to enjoy. What do you say?
      Just tell me, would the 3D be as good as it is other displays, that is the question.

      Lastly, what would you say in light of standard cable viewing and its quality on Ecostar Full HD TVs (standard cable does NOT make use of FULL HD ofcourse).

      Sorry i did not read your post,
      Don't buy Eco Star.
      It's a cheap brand. So not only cheap in value but also in Quality.
      Go for any respectable brand,
      1-Panasonic Viera
      2-Samsung
      3-Sony

      Just my advice.

      dont buy ecostar even if it boasts FullHD 3D.pathetic design with pathetic picture and build quality...if u can compromise a little then there is an excellent option for u,
      43-inch E490 Series 4 1024 x 768 Plasma TV | PS43E490B1 - Samsung UK - OVERVIEW
      the compromising part is the fact its 720p only....price of this unit in local official dealers shouldn't be more than 68k.

      But 3D?! SONY, Panasonic, LG and Samsung are way too overpriced in this regard, no?

      I don't think I would be able to get a 40 inch 3D display in 70k.

      Also, please shed light on the standard cable viewing part when it comes to viewing standard cable on FULL HD displays, is that a common issue or is it not rewlated to FULL HD at all?

      @hasooboy: you are also invited to answer, friend.

      the one i linked is 43inches and standard cable viewing is always going to be degraded as these are hd panels and they dont work well with SD signals.

      as for console gaming (2D or 3D)...its already in 720p so ur not missing much on buying a 720p display.

      maybe our resident TV expert @CerebralTiger can shed some light on this too

      Well 3D is a decent tech but you will only notice good 3d effects in animated movies. Watching camera movies in 3D kind of gets boring after a while and the effects are never that great. I used a 3D setup on my computer for 2 years. Its great for gaming with amazing depths but even that gets boring after a while. But if you really want to go for 3D i say stick with the brands we know are best (Sony, Samsung etc).
      Just to be clear: 3D is not a gimmick like many ppl would tell you, its good but the shashka of 3D wears off soon and you will only be using your lcd for normal tv viewing soon. Also 2D to 3D conversion in these tvs is absolutely garbage.
