The 40PFT5500 is not 3D. Most of the other TVs that are a comparable age to this TV are also not 3D.

If you want a TV that is 3D then you might want to consider 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 think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 40" TVs currently available including the Samsung UE40J6300 (£279.99) which has better reviews.

If this TV display diagonal is not large enough for you then you might want to look at the Seiki SE42FS03 (£269) (42" and cheaper), or the Sharp LC-43CFE6131 (£299.99) (43" and cheaper); or the LG 43LH570 (£378.03) (43" and higher rated).

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative televisions which support Wi-Fi currently available including the LG 49LH604 (£364.90) which has better reviews.

We compared all the other TVs which also support Wi-Fi to this TV and we think the LG 43LH590 (£369.98), or the Sony KDL-50W809 (£369.99) are also worth considering.
