Not 3D

The Philips 48PFS5709 is not 3D, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other medium display diagonal TVs that are a similar age to this television are also not 3D.

TVs which are 3D that might be worth looking at include the UE48H6400 (£549.99), or the UE48H6200 (£534.69) both from Samsung or the LG 47LB650 (£567.29).
