HD detail like youve never seen before
High Definition is the greatest advancement in television technology since black and white changed to colour. A TV bearing the HD Ready logo has the ability to display High Definition broadcasts of 720 or 1080 lines, as opposed to standard broadcasts of 625 lines. The detail HD delivers is staggering. A HD screen contains more pixels which allows you to see every blade of grass, every thread, every feather in crystal clear clarity.


FREEVIEW included
All Tevion HD TVs now include built-in Freeview, which means you will have a greater number of Digital channels (and radio programmes) to choose from in an instant. Plus, thanks to the RED button facility, you can interact with your TV, actually taking part in the programme youre watching.

I have an early version of the tevion 32" and it is good, but this is so much better at half the price I paid 2 years ago. Good contrast ratio @ 1500:1 and at last a 6.5 ms response rate. Might go for this and sell my old one!!
#2
not bad specially when it has 1500:1 Contrast ratio and freeview
#3
Would anyone happen to know if it has a PC d-sub connection and a component connection?
#4
they haven't got any model number to go with it and so its almost impossible to know anything
#5
Aldi has problem in the past with the Tevion/Medion company. there old model was not HD compatible but they sold it saying that it is. full thread here on AV Forum

This is the model that I have, and yes Aldi/Tevion did mess up with the "HD Ready" claim for this. However It has been a very good set. This new Model is worlds apart from the 2005 tv. One point, if you use Sky box, set the tv to RGB and not PAL.

If anyone is after one of these, I would go to the store and be waiting outside for them to open the doors on the morning it goes on sale. I went on Sunday for some xmas lights and got there for 10am (opening time) there was a que outside when i pulled into the carpark. By the time i got out of car the doors were open. They were also selling the laptops on sunday so think most were waiting for these. They were gone in less than a minute, so if you're not there you won't get one! hth

Previous electronics have always highlighted a '3yr warranty' but can't see ANY mention of warranty on this one!

Have to say I'm now wary of anything with a warranty from Aldi - made mistake of buying a lawn rake from them in the Spring - after about 1hrs elapsed time use its belt/cog wheel had gone. Ended up spending over £3 (10% of product price) on phone calls to an 0870 line that didnt have a transparent queue system; promised phone calls back never came; assurances EVENTUALLY that I'd get a new one back turned out to be false. In future will just take back to Aldi based on Sale of Goods Act - though as I say thinking of never buying a warranty type item from them again.

Oh, that's a totally different experience than I had!

I bought the 42" Plasma from Aldi 18 months ago when it came out. 11 months later I took it back and got the cash handed to me in less than 5 minutes with no questions asked. I was very impressed.

ALL ALDI's electronic items are covered by their blanket 3 year warranty.

Remember - you only get what you pay for. SD TV on a decent lcd looks pretty poor so i wiould assume that it will look turd on this. Good for a monitor/ps3 otherwise i wouldn't bother.

I've had similar experience also.2 years agi i bought a technotronics PVR.After 11 months returned it and got a full refund in cash in minutes.Bought the new model while i was in the shop and 11 months down the line (today actually) i returned that one and again got my £100 back in full.So i have had 2 years use of a PVR for free and i am now going to buy a better model from Argos (Thomson) out of the money i have just been refunded and still have £20 in my pocket.:)

I think I prefer the Hanspree, to be honest although it doesn't have a digital tuner I believe

You can try that but it more than likely wont work if you are out of your 30 days return to store policy. You will be asked to contact the manufacturer and the manufacturer will be more than happy to repair/replace your faulty product.

It's my understanding that in the sale of goods act it does state that you can return things if they are not of 'merchantable quality' (which is what i assume you were alluding to above). However, it also states that whether or not you get a refund or replacement is at the disgresion of the retailer if you are outside of a certain time period (usually classed as a 'reasonable inspection period', which 30 days is deemed to be). In this case, after 30 days (the reasonable inspection period again) and you return with a faulty product then you will be offered a repair or replacement via the manufacturer to be contacted through the helplines.

Obviously, i'm not a lawyer, though i have been through the above with a person at the citizens advice bureau and they said that i was correct with my understanding of the situation.

There is also somthing else called the burden of proof, which i think comes up after a longer period of time (like after 3 or 6 months) whereby before that time its up to the manufacturer to prove that the item wasn't inherently faulty before it was sold and after that time (of 3 or 6 months) the burden of proof falls to the consumer who must prove that the product was faulty when it was sold to them and has not become faulty due to misuse on their part.

Believe me, i've been on both sides of this situation (in trying to get a laptop sorted at pc world when i was at uni and now on a day to day basis with me working in retail (for aldi) and as much as it sucks to be the person returning somthing thats just the way it is, also, being nasty gets you nowhere, neither will spouting your 'Rights' at someone when you haven't fully looked into them. However, we are suseptible to calm, civilised and logical discussion :thumbsup:

What does the contrast ratio mean? My mum told me that anything under 5000:1 isn't very good (hers is 10000:1). Does is depend on the size?
#17
So is there going to be a rush for these 2morrow?
#18
picked one of these today. The catford store had 3 pallets full. Will give a review later in the week once i have installed.
#19
Hi I brought this and i am not sure if i was spoilt with my old philips 32" crt tv but the picture doesnt seem great either on sky (scart or svideo) or my xbox 360 using scart cable.

Maybe i have done something wrong but i cant seen many menus to change. Would be interested to what others think maybe its a LCD thing......?
#20
forgot to say its the LD3210 model if anyone was interested and i cant find any sky remote codes if anyone has one it would be greatly appreicated.
#21
I will try and reply to all the questions

Manual - The posted manual is the wrong manual
Connections - vga (PC)
2 x HDMI
1 x svideo
2 x scart
there are others but not sure what they are.

The model is the LCD3210ID manufactor date of 11/2007


It does have 3 years waranty at least that is what it said on the box ;)

Contrast Ratio is essentially a comparison of a screens blackest black and whitest white.A higher contast ratio indicates that on screen colours will be richer.

Do you have a premium or core? If premium there is a switch on the end of the cable that says TV or HD (or something like that). Make sure you switch it to HD.

For best results use a vga or component cable (if the tv has these imputs)
#24
I have a core 360 so i guess i need a special cable?

vga? - this is a monitor lead no?
component this is the red / black / yellow? if so yes it has these connectors but i think my sky + box only has red and black for audio.
[helper]#25
You can buy a vga cable for your Xbox which you can hook up to your vga port on your tv (check you have one on your telly before buying the cable).

The alternative is to buy a component cable - argos were doing these for £5. (edit - just looked they don't have them any more but try Play.com, Amazon etc)
#26
Mine is not open yet. WIll hopefully do tomorrow.
I thought these TVs get delivered with a vga cable?
#27
Got mine on Sunday. installed the same day and it's working fine. I would say the picture quality is not as good as my Phillips 42'' but that is something I would have expected anyway. Haven't tried the freeview, which is supposed to be rubbish, as I am using Virgin box instead.
Haven't tried xbox yet so will post later on about it.
I think that, so far, its a good tv for it's price.
#28
Bought 1 at the new local store. The TV picture and sound is excellent. The Freeview channels are no problem and the 3 year warranty is brilliant. However, when I went to my SKY channels some of the channels were in a "narrow view". When I changed the Aspect ration on the TV handset that was OK but very soon changing channels reverted to "narrow view". The main channels I use in SKY, BBC, ITV, Sky Sports were OK but some others were in "narrow view".

The helpline number in effect said "that's the way it is". As I never had the problem with my previous TV and other people can have SKY working with LCD TVs what gives?

Anyone else had a similar experience before I take it back.
