If you would prefer a TV that is 3D then you might want to look at the UE40H6200 (£422.79), or the UE46F8000 (£399.99) both from Samsung; or the Sony KDL-43W809 (£399).

There are a number of alternative 60Hz refresh rate TVs currently available which you might want to consider including because of its better review score, the Philips 42PFT6309 (£349.99).

TVs with a faster high frequency rate that might be worth considering include the Panasonic TX-40CS520 (£329.99) (100Hz and cheaper), or the Hisense LTDN50K220 (£365) (100Hz and cheaper); or the Sony KDL-40W705 (£369) (200Hz and higher rated).
