LG has confirmed that its 3D TV portfolio will spring into action in May going up against the barrage of other sets from Samsung, Sony, Panasonic and Philips.

Although the company is already rolling out 3D TVs in a number of pubs in the UK, users will finally be able to get a slice of the three dimensional pie in May with the Full LED 3D Ready TV (LX9900) and 3D Blu-ray player (BX580) for the home.

Available in both 47-inch and 55-inch variants, the televisions use active shutter glasses to create the 3D experience. Other specs on board include TruMotion 400Khz, 10,000,000:1 Dynamic contrast ratio, Bluetooth, DLNA, wireless AV link and a name that is likely to only get consumers confused with the top of the range Sony offering; the LX900.

Planning to offer the complete package, LG will also offer a 3D Blu-ray player, the BX580 at the same time.

Prices are still to be finalised, but our gal on the inside tells us the televisions will cost somewhere between £2500 - £3000 for the 47-inch LX9900 and £3600 - £4000 for the 55-inch LX9900. The 3D Blu-ray player will be around £350.
