It's a good price - but Acoustic Solutions is a really **** brand - so wouldn't touch it with a barge pole...
#3
bad contrast ratio
no freeview
price is good for 37in

I bought a 26" Accoustic solutions TV 6 months ago for £230 and I'm still very pleased with it. Don't be put off by the brand.
#5
Since HD content is still pretty rare outside of gaming I dont really see the point in being an early adopter with a TV which wont even be that much better than SD. Just wait until HD has matured enough that you can get a good set for a low price, or just pony up the extra money.
#6
can anyone suggest the best 37" deal out at the mo?
#7
I bought a 32" Acoustic Solutions LCD just after Xmas and tbh it's a very good telly in saying that the specs for this one are pretty low and I wouldn't buy one with those specs.

I would happily recommend Acoustic Solutions, Ignore the brand snobs.

Bought 2 Acoustic Solutions LCD TV's in the last 6 months, took them both back as the picture quality was awful, even with a XBOX 360 at 720p.

Got Viston's instead and am much happier.

Here's a 37" with freeview and better contrast ratio -
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/142288

May not look quite as pretty on the outside, but that's not really the point of a TV...
#9
saw the 32" one for £299, but not sure on the brand, and mixed opinions on here
#10
I wouldn't read too much into people here saying that the AS's telly is good, unless you want to take your tv advise from people who buy the cheapest deal on the highstreet. At the end of the day you get what you pay for!

Anyone considering this, would be recormended to head over to avforums and check out the reviews there - they really know what they are talking about. Its likely that this AS brand telly is like all the other cheap brand LCDs and suffer from traits such as backlight bleed and poor constrasts.
#11
there was a couple of 32" for £299 it was 1500:1 contrast ratio I went for and am chuffed with it.

IMHO It's not alot to do with the Branding of these LCD's but the specs are the ultra important aspects - if you find a cheap high spec telly then brand wouldn't bother me personally.

Having said that I wouldn't be buying this telly...sorry
#12
i seen this while i was in argos the other day. i asked the guy on customer services about it and he said he wouldnt touch them with a barge pole! he said that brand gets returned broken more than any other.. they seem to be the new bush/alba..
#13
My Acoustic Solutions 26" has been great...superb picture over hdmi or vga, but what do I know ;-)

Lol new bush/alba. Anyway you have to remember that the panels ie the main screens are sourced from different places, in fact 32" Sony Bravia's panels are not Sony but Orion apparantly! Having said that, what the manufacturer's do as well is important.

For example, i get a Ferrari engine and Chasis to make a car. I can make a pig's ear out of it (wrong suspension, **** body etc etc), wheras Ferrari will probabily make it a lot better ;-)

Acoustic Solutions brand has gone downhill, they have lost their reputation since Argos starting selling them.
#16
What a bunch of brand snobs out there.

I have bought two AS LCD TVs (32in and 37in) in the last year and picture quality is suberb. No trailing images and excellent colour definition.

In fact, I bought a Bush (yes Bush) Freesat HD receiver for Euro 2008 and the HD picture quality through the 37in AS TV is outstanding.

Don't be put off by most of the pessimists, most who have probably not even bought oe seen an AS.

This forum is for picking up hot deals and this is definitely one of them.

You can now even buy an AS 40in LCD in Argos currently for £449.

Voted HOT.

Completely agree.

If you're looking for a cheap, big size, HD Ready TV, this is the way to go.

If you want to spend almost double and get a branded TV, get Sony, Toshiba, Panasonic or Samsung.
#20
So confusing, for every good word about AS there's a bad one.
#21
Anyone who buys a tv not 1080p is mad

Define 'mad'?

My 1080i AS TV using HD is superb so send the men in white coats out to me now.

If you want to waste money lining the pockets of the multinationals, ask yourself who is mad?
#23
Unless you're going to watch it from 6" away, I don't think the eye will be able to pick up much difference between an 1080p & 720p (1080i) anyway??

I'm blind as a bat anyway.........cheaper to get a big telly than a new set of specs ;-)

Not long got the 37" Samsung from the BT Shop for £450 delivered, chuffed to bits with it's apparently "mad supportive" 720p

They're coming to get me.....I can hear them.....voices.....footsteps......madness awaits!!!
#24
MASSIVE
Anyone who buys a tv not 1080p is mad


anyone who thinks this is dumb
#25
the price is brilliant, just don't expect too much :thumbsup:

if you do have a little more money to throw around you can get a pansonic 37" plasma for about £550. (i think) - It might be £150 more but its a million times better and will last far longer
#26
It might be £150 more but its a million times better
and i've told you a million times not to exagerate. seriously i bought an AS 37" 6 Months ago and its very good for the price,

Most deffo!

1080p TV's are just hype, sure if your sitting very close to them and have tons of Blu-rays and 1080p games great, for SD better of getting a 720p TV, Plasma's over LCD any day of the week. I have a 2 year old Panny 37PX60 and 720p looks fab,and SD is brill.

silver, poor color choice

ok maybe a thousand times better then :whistling:

only joking but im just saying if somebody had the extra £150 they would be much better off buying something like the panasonic 37" plasma (in my opinion :thumbsup:)

oh no - can we stop the debate about the TV 1080p issue and concentrate on the telly YES it is a good deal if your not bothered over quality. IF you can afford more buy a better TV if not don't..

Depends what you want from a TV some people can't tell the difference between non HD HD720 and HD1080p - I can on mine but it is an each to their own.

Do some of us say "i'd never drive a ford/vauxhall etc" - this is the same thing.

So my voting not bad if you want a CHEAP TV of that size and not too bothered over the spec.
#31
i had a 32" AS one and it was RUBBISH - took it back 3 times. I settled on a Samsung which is so much better
#32
I too am worried about the quality of Acoustic Solutions TVs. I bought a 32" one for my mother and it went wrong after 3 weeks. Once bitten....

well put

This TV is a warm deal at best. There are other 37" screens at same price e.g. http://www.ebuyer.com/product/142288 So, even setting aside any so-called brand snobbery, this isn't anything special, just the going rate for entry level 37" TV's.

It's not just about brand, if you put this next to a Panasonic or a Sony LCD TV you will see the difference (that's all im saying because i could go on). Just because the freeview box supports HD signals (when they become available) doesn't mean you were watching an HD feed of Euro 2008.

exactly, the screen is the canvas, the quality of paints used etc make a big difference. i know i would prefer a lotus elise to a toyota celica but they both have the same engine!

If you read my post, I was using a FREESAT HD receiver, not Freeview. It definitely WAS a HD feed for Euro 2008, both from BBC and ITV; the difference was quite obvious.

Ok no need to get upset just because you bought an Acoustic Solutions set when you could of invested in something better. ;-)
