Not 3D

Like most of the other medium display diagonal TVs that have been on the market for a similar time to this TV, the 40 VLE 6520 is not 3D.

TVs which are 3D that might be worth looking at include the KDL-50W809 (£369.99), or the W805C (£399) both from Sony or the Sharp LC-49SFE7451 (£409.99).

40 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 40 inch TV.

We compared this TV to all the other 40" televisions and we think because of its better review score, the Samsung UE40J6300 (£279.99) is also worth considering.

If this Grundig TV display diagonal is not large enough for you then you might want to consider the SE42FO02 (£269) (42" and cheaper), or the SE42FS03 (£269) (42" and cheaper) both from Seiki or the JVC LT-42C571 (£269) (42" and cheaper).
