Would appreciate any comments the wise Geekzoner's have...
Due to some over excited sword fighting in the lounge, my 65" LG 3D 4K TV has a just over 1cm scratch taking off the black top layer allowing white light to be shown underneath.
Spoke to insurance company who wanted to see a TV appraisal.
I did this and the recommendation was to have a replacement screen (ex-stock Auckland) which I forwarded to my insurer.
They quickly came back explaining for the cost of the repair they would prefer to offer a new unit and I was sent to Noel Leeming.
On arrival I was presented with the TV they had selected for me, only to discover 3D wasn't a thing anymore and they could only offer a 65" 4K TV.
I have the glasses at home and a hard drive of 3D films and while I don't watch 3D a lot, I would like to have the option of watching either films I do own or any future 3D films that catch my eye.
Would you guys push for the screen to be repaired?
It was a bit of an anti-climax to find out 3D wasn't a thing ANY TV supplier could offer.
Do I have to accept the replacement non 3D unit?
I'm seriously considering saying that id like the screen replacement as the replacement unit doesn't offer a "like for like" alternative....yes it will be 4K, and although 3D can be a bit of a gimmick - its a nice to have and having the screen repaired would I think set me up for the future - while 3D is never going to be huge, I'm sure I will see a 3D film that catches my eye...
