i think thats a hot deal.
#2
Never seen a 16" tv before though. Bargain me thinks
#3
HD Ready 16" seems a bit pointless really. I know some people might want a 16" due to size restrictions, but can't imagine theres much point having High Definition as you won't see most of the extra detail.
[mod]#4
seems a good price HOT
#5
Just reserved, thanks OP, voted hot !
#6
good price for an lcd 16", however if you visit your local tip and check the tv's that are being thrown away, you will find the majority of them being Alba/bush

Well worth the extra £20 for 3 year warranty.

low price but probably refleted its quality

possibly true, but thats mostly due to the fact they're cheap so more people buy them, as an aside as an ex-tv repairman i can tell you that you'd be suprised just how many named brands are made on the same production lines as the bush/alba models using exactly the same chassis, just look at the sky remote codes and check which manufacturers use the same codesets as bush

Possibly, but personally, I think it's still worth the risk.

You should be able to buy the warranty instore when you pick it up, assuming you are picking it up.
#15
Interesting the link for the warranty that was there this morning seems to have gone, what was the code ?
#16
Why would you want HD in 16" Quite a bad deal seeing as for £200 you can get larger ones with better brands?

This is a good deal in my opinion. Why would I want to pay double this price for a TV when a 16 inch is fine for my bedroom and this has freeview built-in as well. I'll buy on my Nationwide Credit Card and get a years extended warranty for free.
#18
How do you get a years extra warranty with Nationwide ?

Extended warranty provides a free 12 month cover for many gas or electrical items that cost over £50, and have a manufacturers warranty of up to 2 years, when purchased with a Nationwide Credit Card or Gold Card. Customers must register new products within 60 days of purchase. The policy document contains full details of items that are excluded from cover.
#20
hot ............. :thumbsup:
#21
way too small - my laptop screen is bigger (20" actually - i like things big). I'll refrain from voting cold this time but definitely not hot
#22
Reserved one for collection,ideal for the bedroom.:thumbsup:
#23
Bought a 15" Alba LCD TV from Argos some time ago for £200. Had no problems with it, not even a dead pixel (tempting fate! :whistling:)

Not the greatest picture quality but fine for our kitchen with limited room. This one looks like it has slightly more powerful speakers. The 2w speakers on ours are a bit weak.

Current deal at Makro £95 + Vat incl. freeview and DVD but looks very cheap. This looks better (from the photo at least). Prices keep dropping :thumbsup:

good price. Ideal for the kitchen.

Thanks. Went instore as they had 4 left anyway. The warranty number was different instore.
#26
Brought yesterday. not a bad tv. idea for kitchen. picture quality not brilliant but for £99 including frreview cant argue. sound is quite good for 3w (tweak eq) loads of inputs and outputs on back.
If money is tight worth getting for kitchen or small bedroom. Also took out 3yr warranty for £19.99, worth doing.
#27
Bought one yesterday and picture is poor and also doesnt pick up all freeview channels as well as my old tv and freeview box.

Picture is only good if I am sat in a certain posityion - move to the left or right and its like looking at a load of negatives!!

Back to my 10 year old 14" and old freview box - dont know how these things are allowed on the market - whats the point of a TV if you cant see the picture!!!

Basically this TV is only good if you want to listen to the radio channels available on free view.
#28
cheapest I've seen for this size tv a known make. It may be Alba, but at least it's not Tachika or Makimaibochi or what ever they sell in Tescos/Asda.

Got to be hot.
#29
Anyone else having any bother with poor picture and not alot of freeview channels like roxy123 said?

im thinking of getting one at weekend, seems a good deal
#30
got one today, great TV and they are going fast, doubt you'd get 1 at wkend,
Picture is very sharp and clear with loads of options in the menus, eg panoramic view
cinema view etc etc, knocks spots of my main Sony 28ins TV. Best to have a good aerial lead
and not the cheapo clothesline thin type. Really chuffed, am sending back my 15ins Vistron
I got 10 days ago.as it has developed a fault. :thumbsup: get one if you can you wont regret it at this price. All channels scanned in first time, no probs at all. Almost all sold out within 20 mile radius of me, Cheshire.
#31
I'm considering getting one for the kitchen but I'm concerned about the viewing angles especially after roxy123's report. Can anyone comment on whether this is any worse than other budget LCDs?
#32
Can i just say anyone after the insurace nuber its 883/2050 £19.99, covers acidental and macanical breakdown. Also the Alba and Bush name now belongs argos, dont know who akes the TV tough, it will be argos tho. Also Bush havnt made anything for years they've just slaped the name on. Have a look in the cat now and see how many alba and bush names the are
