Well with what you can get out there at the moment for this money or thereabouts, makes this no-name tv is ice cold I'm afraid!
As for the 3 year warranty I would think this would come into play with this TV, as all the no-name and low end brands are notoriously unreliable, Panels seem to be ok its the electronics themselves in the back that are cheap and nasty and often develop faults!

Cold from me I'm afraid but at least I spoke up and have given my reasons..There are loads of deals out there for TV's at the moment and some crackers like the LG LD690 for £319 which is just a huge scorching hot deal at the moment, No-names like this just cannot compete with that sort of TV at that price!
#3
Totally disagree with Crezylegs. For a start LG is not 3year and £70 more. Most non branded TV's LED's are made by LG, Samsung or Philips anyway. There is only a few LCD manufactures.
I have had a Argos 26" **** named TV for 4 years now. Not a single problem and better picture then most i see in the BIG TV/Audio shops.

GREAT buy for me Hot

Whats to loose apart from taking it back in 3 years IF it goes wrong and get your money back?
#4
It doesn't matter what brand you buy nowadays.
You're lucky to get to 3 years without a fault developing.
#5
Most likely a Silvercrest which is a Comag make. Not a bad brand by any means...+3 years warranty makes it a very good deal. HOT from me....

^ This.

Samsung had to swap my 2 year old telly. And they gave me a new 2 year warranty on the swapped model, which I'm glad about. In theory, I'll have a new telly every two years. :)

Would rather get the £225 32" Sanyo 720p LCD TV from Ebuyer. Good quality set.
1080p on a 32" is pointless unless you use it as a monitor, or sit with your nose pressed to the TV.

As for it being 'Silvercrest', that brand name is owned by Lidl, so not surprising really. Probably manufactured by Vestel like all the other crappy TV's.

Actually a large percentage of the crappy cheap TV's have panels manufactured by Vestel, especially European brands.

EDIT: After a bit of looking around. Silvercrest TV's ARE rebranded Vestel sets, and the panels are either made by Vestel themselves, or sourced from BOE (cheap Chinese electronics company).

Used to be true a few years ago but not any more. There are quite a few cheap lcd manufactures and this will be one of them. Think the tesco one that was posted is Samsung but this seems to be a cheapo panel

Congratulations on posting a link that the OP already stated, and not reading the posts about it being a Silvercrest/Vestel TV. Your reading skills truly are superb.

Yes, that was harsh, but deservedly so.
#11
contrast ratio 1400:1 isnt good at all.
#12
Not an awful deal by any means; but a week ago when you could buy the Sony EX403 for £299 with a 5 year warranty this would have been freezing.

Personally I'd sidestep the junkyard TV, especially when higher quality TV's such as the Samsung LE32C530, LG 32LD450, Toshiba 32BV700B etc etc can be bought for the same price or a couple of paper notes more. I'd sooner have a 1 year warranty than a junkyard TV.
#14
LIDL emmental cheese is nice and good value, but their tvs are not good value. you should pay a extra 10 or 15 percent and a get decent TV
#15
my samsung le32b550 is absolutely brilliant over a year after I bought it the picture and sound are better than when I first did. BUT I did pay £400 for it so my advice go for the cheapest, you probably wont even notice the diffeence
#16
I posted this last time it was on and it cold voted rather cold.
#17
Another cold voter here, this isn't the sort of good deal that Lidl put together normally. Things like TV's have to be much cheaper than the equivalent branded versons otherwise it's not worth the risk.

I quite fancy the emmental cheese though...
#18
Lidl items are off cheap quality and there is no make. cold

It's perfectly acceptable on a TV of this price. Also don't go believing those big numbers some companys give you.

Sorry for hi=jacking the thread, but I want to replace my old CRT TV in the living room with a flat panel (plasma or LCD, not sure) with a small PC under it for web browsing or video streaming. Given my cable box has HDMI output, should I go for a monitor with HDMI or DVI inputs for the TV content, or a TV with VGA input for the PC content (or if my HTPC has HDMI, that connection). Does HDCP have any bearing on this decision?
#23
If you think it is good value buy it on your own judgement not somebody elses we did 3 years ago when we bought a 32" hanspree which our son hammers with his xbox and absolutely no problems branded aint always best for the consumer but it is for the retailer

Sorry that was a 37" hanspree

You'll tend to find quite a few TV's have a VGA input as well as HDMI, so you can keep your options open. Bear in mind that VGA doesn't carry sound so you'll need an additional wire from your PC. And if you try and play protected content (HDCP) over VGA you will lose resolution, I can't remember what it drops to but it certainly isn't 1080p. You will need a HDMI connection with a HDCP compatible PC to get the full effect.
#26
I see no reason to vote cold.

You've got 3 years of relative protection and further more its £50 + cheaper than the nearest competitor. Unless you're a brand sheep I can't really see a reason to not go for this, at this price.

Yeah, it won't win any awards but at that price what do you expeect?

Voted hot.

Actually you'd need to sit less than 4 feet away to tell the difference between 720p and 1080p on a 32" TV. And anyone needing to sit that close should put their money towards some glasses rather than a new TV...
And I didn't say 1080p was pointless on a 32" TV, I said it's poinless UNLESS you use the TV as a monitor. But at a wild guess I'd say less than 1% of the population use a 32" LCD TV as a computer monitor.

Wow, so that's between zero and 600,000 people using a 32"LCD TV as a PC monitor, that is a spectacular 'wild' guess and one that's going to be very hard to disprove :p

The problem is the quality of budget TV's has dropped considerably in the last few years.
As for Hannspree, they are actually a good brand, so you would expect to get a good set.
I got my dad a 32" Elonex LCD TV a few years ago, was around £100 cheaper than the equivalent branded TV back then, yet it's absolutely brilliant. This was mainly due to there being only 3 major panel manufacturers back then, and all 3 made decent quality panels.

The difference is now there's an abundance of manufacturers, and a few of them churn out awful panels for very cheap TV's, just like the one in the OP.
Then they pair poor panels with poor electronics, and what you get at the end of it is a very disapointing TV. This 32" is made by Vestel, widely known for their poor quality budget TV's. And the fact is you can get a very good TV for just a little more than £250. The ONLY thing going for this TV is the 3 year warranty, but many people, as someone has already said, would rather spend a similar amount on a much better TV with a 1 year warranty (or in the case of the Sanyo TV from Ebuyer I mentioned, a 2 year warranty).

Nice try, but you are assuming every member of the UK population has a 32" TV? If my comment was silly, that one is a hell of a lot worse.
And I did say it was a wild guess, but lets just say 'a very, very low percentage of the UK population use a 32" LCD TV as a computer monitor'. While it's not exactly accurate, it's probably something close to the truth.

No I’m not, you stated in your statement thus:

“But at a wild guess I'd say less than 1% of the population use a 32" LCD TV as a computer monitor”

Which equates to anything from zero to 600, 000 people use a 32” LCD TV for their PC monitor

whereas on reflection you seem to have intended to have said :

“But at a wild guess I'd say less than 1% of the population THAT CURRENTLY OWN A 32” TV use it as a computer monitor”

which is a huge difference in statement.

jukkie

If my comment was silly, that one is a hell of a lot worse.


Steady on Mr Sensitive – didn’t mention ‘silly’ once.

All semantics granted, but clearly important to you to clarify your backtracking methodology.

Keep smiling, not a biggy.

But at a wild guess I'd say less than 1% of the population use a 32" LCD TV as a computer monitor.

As I said, 3-5ft and you can notice the difference between 720p and 1080p at 32". All you did was pick the middle numbver between them. If you can't see the difference, then maybe it's you who needs the glasses?

You really don't know what you are talking about do you. 32" is a perfect size TV for a bedroom were people will be viewing from closer distances, nothing to do with needing glasses.

So not pointless then? It's a pretty simple concept to grasp, you said it was pointless UNLESS, so then it wouldn't be pointless. Regardless of that, it's not pointless when using it as a TV at a distance of 3-5ft.

People like you need to think before posting. There is nothing wrong with a 32" TV that is 1080p if viewed from the correct distance.

Thanks for this. I'll have to research what makes a PC HDCP compatible. Resolution isn't a real biggie for me because 32" is probably my max screen and apparently you have to sit quite close to notice the difference between 720 and 1080p. I was thinking about wide viewing angles as well and whether plasma was a superior technology for that.

You'll tend to find quite a few TV's have a VGA input as well as HDMI, so you can keep your options open. Bear in mind that VGA doesn't carry sound so you'll need an additional wire from your PC. And if you try and play protected content (HDCP) over VGA you will lose resolution, I can't remember what it drops to but it certainly isn't 1080p. You will need a HDMI connection with a HDCP compatible PC to get the full effect.
