Immersive 3D content

The Digihome 42" 3D TV uses passive 3D technology to create stunning 3D movies with real depth. Simply connect a 3D capable device to your TV via an HDMI lead (make sure it is v1.4), sit back and bring the most immersive movie experience possible to your lounge. Passive 3D TVs do not need expensive active shutter glasses, which provides the user with several advantages. Firstly they do not need to be charged prior to use in order to work. No battery is required so they work every time you need them. Secondly they are far cheaper, so if you damage a pair you don't have to break the bank to get a new set of glasses. Lastly the glasses are much lighter and therefore comfortable to wear for the duration of your movie.

HDMI input for HD quality

To enjoy HD quality from your devices, simply connect them to the Digihome LCD TV via one of the HDMI connections. HDMI is the highest possible quality connection, it carries both HD video and audio signals, ensuring you get the best possible picture and sound. Some of the more recent laptops and cameras also have HDMI outputs, so you can easily view HD content from them on your TV.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This has been set-up at home for a week now and I would love to say lots of nice things about it and to praise it's price and performance. But that's a pretty tough thing to achieve in this case, while the price is low there might be better options because the performance here matches that low price point.

So low is the picture quality that I would strongly recommend either going for a smaller screen or doing without the 3D option and buying an alternative TV set. Or if both those are absolute essentials for you then, if at all possible, stretch the budget a bit towards one of the entry-level LG options. You won't regret that bit of extra saving up. Bear in mind too that this set is a band C for power consumption, most LED alternatives will be either B or even A. That can certainly add-up: compared, for example, with LG's 2011 42" 3D TVs the Digihome is about a tenner more expensive to run each year, over it's lifetime that could be significant.

So why the recommendation to look elsewhere? Performance, simple as that: while this is indeed a big 42" HD TV with lots of connectivity and built-in Freeview (SD version), the picture quality is poor. It's not unwatchable but it's not comfortable viewing either. The conventionally-lit LCD screen is obviously a low-grade component - it's colour-control is actually okay but contrast and detail are horrible. Ghosting from movement is appalling.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Upgrading from a 32" this felt like a big TV to start with ... it took some time to get used to the extra size of this set ... and rearrange the lounge a little to fit it in. Make sure you have room for it ... Width is 102 cm.

The build quality seems adequate, although the base feels a little precarious - it stays up fine by itself, but feels unstable if knocked - not a big problem as I'd take care with a TV anyway, obviously ... but I'm not sure I'd want it on the stand around small children. There are no moving parts to break (flip-down sections of the casing for example), and all of the joins and connectors seem solid.

I'm really pleased with the picture quality, and it compares favourably with the 32" Toshiba it replaced. With high resolution sources (DVD's and Blu-Rays ... I don't have HD live TV of any kind) it really shines and programs look very good indeed, with clear details and good colours. (For those interested, my Blu Ray player is a Panasonic DMP-BDT110EB 3D Blu-ray Disc Player with Skype & VIERA Cast).

The downside of such a big screen is that it does show up flaws in poor quality pictures. Some broadcasts of older TV programs, as well as poor DVD transfers, appear quite grainy or pixellated. The picture from a Wii console initially appeared poor, until purchasing a component cable and changing the Wii output to 480p improved it a lot.

To watch 3D Blu-ray disks, you also need a passive 3D glasses (cheap and easy to purchase, and four adequate pairs are included with the television), a 3D Blu-ray player, and a high-speed HDMI cable. Unfortunately there aren't many titles available yet.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Technology, eh! It is a wonder anyone buys any hardware these days, what with the seemingly constant announcement and introduction of `the next best thing'. Regarding televisions, black and white to colour was exciting, and analogue to digital got rid of the impossible bulk of the former. Following that, it was standard definition into high definition. Then, as the majority of the population was trying to fathom out increased pixel count and hertz, a new kid on the block turned up going by the name of 3D. Whilst this wasn't a new idea (it had been around in cinemas since the early 50s), this was the first time a mainstream version was available for home use. There is now a plethora of TVs available with 3D capabilities and some programmes in the same format (mostly films, nature and football, but it has to start somewhere). However, as enticing as it may seem to have `real life' in your living room, is it worth the investment?

The Television

The first thing noticeable is the television itself sits uneasily on its stand and it seems that any undue pressure will see it breaking off, so the advice is not to move it about too often. Where the two meet doesn't seem big enough for the size of the screen and should probably be wider for extra rigidity. The usual on/off, volume and channel buttons are at the front left and are of the touch screen type but I doubt very few use those, preferring the remote control. It's one that must be standard for this brand, as there are unused buttons, certainly for this particular model. Staying with the rather long remote, the buttons are all of a decent size with a dedicated one for 3D.

Round the back is where the connectors are to be found.
