Many consumers have been reluctant to embrace the 3D TV technology, with some citing the cost of the TVs and 3D glasses. But all is not lost if you are a resident in the UK, as we have news of the Cello budget 3D TVs being announced.

What Hi-Fi Sound and Vision are reporting that you can pick up a 42-inch 3D TV for only £499, and even better each set comes with four sets of 3D glasses, and each extra pair costing only £19.99. The unit will use LG’s passive 3D technology and has some useful features considering the price.

You can also get a 47-inch model for £699, and each unit comes with two HDMI sockets, an EPG, and a USB input which will allow owners to record onto a connected device. Director of Cello was at first unsure about the 3D market, and how good 3D content was.

But mentioned the fact that now that Sky has a 3D channel which consumers who already subscribe too can get for no extra cost, makes “ownership of a 3D TV even more appealing”. You will be able to pick one of the new TVs up later this month from retailers such as Marks & Spencer and EBuyer.

The prices for these new sets are pretty impressive especially as you get four sets of 3D glasses with them, which can normally push up the price of 3D TV ownership quite substantially. Add the fact they will us LG technology could mean a reasonable experience without a to high of an outlay.

Will the price of the Cello range tempt you to buy a 3D TV?
