I have seen the picture on this and it is not that bad, I guess everyone has voted cold with not even looking at the tele and because it's a alba :roll:

Yep, they probably didn't even bother reading the good reviews on the Argos page.
And for those of you 'bigging up' the Tosh, it's not all that great...

Alba is a budget brand and it should have a budget price. If it was £100 cheaper then i'd vote it hot.

I ain't bigging up the Tosh, I simply think it is much better value than this Argos own brand TV. Even Argos think the Tosh is worth £180 more than the Alba :- http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/5295102/Trail/searchtext%3E42AV635DB.htm trouble is Argos have both about £100 overpriced.

Alba = £400 Sorry it's a no, quality is very poor - look at Richersounds or any other good retailer for better buys by better marques

What specifically is poor about this TV? Seems like a great bargain for a 1080P LCD - first 42" I've seen on general sale <£400.

I'm very tempted unless anyone has any specific issues with it?

Must say I'm also very tempted by the Tosh (currently £450 delivered)...

I like it but my friend says these are better buys:

LG 37LG5020
LG 42LG5020
LG 42LH2000
Samsung LE37B530

i bought one in dec 09 and not a problem so far, good for the money.

I can honestly say, I have had both the LG and the Alba, and I still have the LG cos it is a much better quality than that Alba rubbish, like Amstrad, was good when it first came out, then got battered in the rush by other brands with better quality and competitive prices and warranties. ALBA.....nah thanks!
