Apparently that's not a paradox anymore

If you're dying to get your hands on a 3D TV but just don't have the cash to plunk down thousands of dollars on an ultra modern state-of-the-art set, Viewsonic has exactly what you've been looking for.

The V3D241wm-LED 3D monitor doesn't have a built-in TV tuner, but it'll work just fine for all your normal plug-ins: Blu-ray players, PS3s, cable boxes, and Logitech Revues.

It's only a 24-inch set so it won't be the most amazing thing to display in your living room, but its price - which currently sits at £330 where it debuted in the UK - makes it a 3D TV that's accessible to everyone.

The product even comes with a pair of Viewsonic's 3D glasses, something that's missing even from really expensive models from Samsung and Sony. So out of the box, you'll be able to enjoy 3D content.

On the technical side of things, the Viewsonic models have a 20,000,000:1 contrast ratio (wow), 300 nits of brightness, two-watt speakers, and a 120 Hz refresh rate. There's also an "Eco" mode that helps to reduce power consumption.

All in all, it's a nice, decent set for those who want to test the 3D waters. It's certainly one of the least expensive 3D units we've seen yet, so it's a good entry-level product.
