Catalogue number 208-0611

Seems a pretty decent TV with built in hd freesat and freeview (sd). Only a 50hz but for the money seems a reasonable deal. Tesco have it priced at £649 but currently with £100 off the price. Now in addition they are doing a £100 trade in for your old TV - depending on how strict this is i'm not sure whether you could just roll up with some battered old telly from yesteryear and claim the hundred quid to get this for the £449 tag!

terms and conditions for the trade in here

Simply trade in an old TV, whatever the brand or model - working or not, and receive either £50 or £100 off your new TV. Your trade in TV just needs to have the screen intact. Check out our range below. Hurry offer ends 12 July 2010.

just to clarify, this TV has FreeSat HD and Freeview SD (ie not Freeview HD). Title is slightly misleading. Decent price, would be far hotter if FreeviewHD was included.

Great deal, a shame I have just sold my old TV for £75 to finance the Sony Sainsbury deal a month ago...
Had spent all year waiting, and nothing... Ah well!

People have no excuse now, get rid of your old tellys, and join the revolution!

ehh i gave my old tv away on freecycle....that will teach me to be generous......if anyone is confident enough that england will win the world cup, i noticed that 'Great Universal' will refund you the full amount if you buy a tv in one of their offers.....imo we dont have much chance of winning as much as i would like to lol

It'll be like the start of the film Requiem For A Dream, apart from the fact you won't score some hezza for the tv.

Should be 8% Quidco at Tesco Direct as well = £35.92
#16
I've just ordered this online. Got the £100 trade-in discount but it doesn't give any details of what to do about actually trading in your old set.

Also on the order page it had this...
If you have just purchased a TV from Tesco Direct you could be eligible for a FREE Sky+HD box. Find out by calling Sky on 08442 410 682 and quoting your receipt number. Conditions apply.


Has anyone done this with a TV from Tesco? I'd be interested in the box assuming I can get the free to air HD channels without having to pay any subscription to Sky.
#17
Can you record with this set as well?

Has it got a built in hard drive to record the freeview or freesat?

Does anyone have experience of a normal aeriel input to a LCD HD tv and whether the picture is good or does it really required a HD input?

I've heard that a sd signal gices a poor picture on a HD tv.
#20
We have the Sony KDL-37W5500 (Sainsbury deal) & it shows an excellent SD picture via freeview, it replaced a 32" CRT TV & I haven't really noticed any real picture quality issues, we watch the TV from approx 10ft away.


Cheers.

I acutually got this telly yesterday after trading in my old Matsui 14", there is a marked difference in the freeview SD and freesat HD signals on this telly, the SD signals look a bit blurry or pixelated in comparison, you can minimise it with the appropriate settings or getting more expensive TV that have special processors. I'll compare like-for like with the Wednesday game later
#23
Are you saying that SD pictures look more blurry than HD pictures? Or do you mean that the same channel on both systems (eg BBC1) look more blurry on Freeview?

original question was do SD pictures look a bit blurry on a HDTV as theyre upconverted, after having compared pictures its definately the case, BBC HD was markedly sharper and smoother than BBC 1 when watching the footy (no comments on the result please). You could also notice it when SD cameras were used around the pictch during the BBC HD broadcast. There was no difference in the freesat and the freeview picture at SD, both looked as pixelated as each other when on a big screen, likely a higher spec TV with better processing to upconvert would have improved a SD picture on a large screen
#25
8% quidco?????

I see only 3% quidco for Tesco Direct, 6% on topcashback though.

Have I got it wrong as I was just about to buy this tv.

Are you a little disappointed when viewing the SD signal on this tv then?

don't get me wrong, the SD quality is still good, on par (if not better) with other telly of this price range, just nothing in comparison to a full-on HD signal and it doesn't have some of the extra upscaling processors of higher-end models.

At £449 its prob one of the better deals especially when you take Freesat HD into account, just make sure you hav a dish (we had an old sky one not being used), I went for it just to get £100 for my old 14" telly, esp when you consider its £572 on amazon.

Thanks for the advice, did you get quidco and if so has it tracked yet abd at what percentage?

didnt get quidco, took it down to the store, wanted to be able to haggle if the trade-in TV wasn't up to scratch instead of arguing with the delivery bloke, who likely has more strict criteria

Looking at Quidco site now it does say 3% but it was definitely 8% for Tesco Direct at the time I ordered and posted above. My Quidco is tracking at £37.37

I also contacted Sky about a free Sky HD box and surprise, surprise it was only "free" if I paid the £10pm fee.

EDIT: How come this has been expired... still seems to be available!?!

Thanks for the reply, strange that the percentages changed.

It went out of stock over the weekend so I guess it was expired, come back in stock yesterday. I'm taking the plunge and buying this today. Topcashback is 6% so will go through there.

edit: boohoo topcashback now 3% too!!!!
#32
Damn that's a shame for you. Maybe it was a special rate for a limited time but strange that it should change halfway through the day (for Quidco). Still even though it's tracking there's no guarantee that it'll get paid. Also my transaction amount is showing incorrectly on Quidco - £467 instead of £449.
#33
Unexpire please mods, as this is still available online and also instore at Coventry Arena at least, as I saw them stacked up at the front of the store yesterday (Sun), thankyou.
#34
Well it is out of stock again now but I expect it will be back as they're promoting this deal quite a lot.

Anyway my TV just arrived this morning. One thing - I still haven't had any word about trading in my old telly - delivery guys never asked about it. Looks like you don't have to actually trade in a TV to get the discount. Did anyone else do this online?
#35
^^ I would be interested in what your signal will be and what you think of the picture quality.
#36
I'll post back when I get it set up.
#37
Dear Mr Echo

It would be much apprecialted as I will buy it when it comes back in stock.

I went to view it at Tesco's on Monday but it had FIFA 10 looping on it, but I am never really impressed by any of the shop models tbh. I am hoping that my own sky+ signal will give me a better picture than the one in Tesco's.

Regarding the trade in, there was a sign up in the shop that said any tv must be working, the online guide says any tv (working or not) with an intact screen.

Hello again

I've only had a quick mess about with it last night and all the settings are as they were out of the box. This is my first LCD TV... I'm going from an 11 year old Sony 32" CRT TV. So these are my initial impressions.

SD satellite via RGB scart - personally I prefer the CRT's image over this LCD. This is true of every LCD screen I've seen using SD signals. Having said that, against the two other large LCDs I've had use of at relatives houses (a Panasonic 50" and a Sony 42") this Sony delivers a better picture for SD - but then I don't know how much the size of the screen comes in to play. Couldn't check out Freeview due to cabling issues in the loft!

Freesat - quite good picture - considerably better than the other SD sources but the BBC HD channel looks very good... looking forward to Doctor Who on Saturday.

DVD via RGB scart. I used an R1 copy of Revenge of the Sith and was bit disappointed by the DVD playback but I need to try that again using the component input and also need to check an R2 DVD via the PS3... so more work needed there.

Bluray and PS3 via HDMI - I played God of War 3 a little then watched some selections from the Avatar bluray disc and they looked stunning - really crisp and vibrant colours.

Like I say, I haven't changed any settings so maybe SD sources can be improved with some tinkering but for SD viewing I'd say that this was a step backwards over my old CRT TV. But if fed with HD it looks great.

The delivery guys never made a mention of it - if Tescos do still want this 15 year old 14" Goodmans portable they're more than welcome. ;-)
