#2
Good price for a cheap TV.
#3
Seems like a good deal. Has anyone seen one of these in the flesh?

Just wanted to know if they're actually worth the money, or whether to spend more for an LG or something.

Need a second TV in the bedroom this size with freeviw.

Heat added, great find

Is this full HD?

It says

the 'i' means it's not, but at this price/size I wouldn't really worry.

No, it's only HD Ready i.e. 720p because of it's resolution: 1366x768 pixels :)

Really tempted but there are no reviews of this online
#9
nice find dei, hot
#10
Interesting, I wonder who made the panel.

We should have a HUKD competition to see if anyone can come up with a name for a budget TV manufacturer that doesn't sound awful.

Product depth reads as 82.8cm (32 inches, 2ft 8ins) Width is 24cm (9 inches); Also shows the product is wall mountable. Surely the dimensions are incorrect ?
Note the Technika 32" HD Ready LCD TV with built-in Freeview LCD32-209 is 21.2cm deep and is what I would expect a wall mountable lcd to be.

Product features from the reevoo link are as follows:-
Product Features
Screen Size in Inches 32
Screen size is measured diagonally from corner to corner.
Type of Screen LCD
Most small flatscreen TVs have LCD screens. Some larger TVs have plasma screens. Traditional TVs are called Standard or CRT.
HDMI Interface 2
Like a scart interface but capable of carrying HD signals from or to other devices. You’ll need these to link your Playstation 3 or your Blu-ray player to your HD-ready TV.
Number of Scart Interfaces 2
Scart sockets are places where you can connect other devices to your TV. If you already have a DVD player, a VCR and a Playstation you might want to make sure your new TV has enough Scart interfaces so you don’t have to keep crawling round the back of the TV.
Screen Resolution (pixels) 768p
The number of pixels the screen has. The more you have, the more detail the screen can display, given a high quality source.
Screen Format 16:9
This is a ratio of the horizontal to the vertical size of the screen. 16:9 is standard widescreen format for TVs, replacing the older 4:3 format.
Frequency 50
Picture in Picture (PIP) No
Weight (kg) 15
Full HD No
Full HD means a TV has a screen resolution of 1080p and can output at at least 24 frames per second. For bigger TVs Full HD is becoming common, but you won’t see Full HD on normal TV channels for a long time, so it remains optional for many people.
Electronic Program Guide (EPG) Yes
Digital Tuner Yes
The most common digital tuner is a Freeview tuner, allowing the TV to recieve free digital channels without requiring a separate Freeview box. Some TVs also contain Freesat tuners.
FreeSat Tuner No
FreeSat is a free digital satellite TV service. The main benefit is that you can get HD programming from people like the BBC without having to pay for a subscription to a service like Sky. You’ll need a dish to recieve the signals though.
PC Interface Yes
If you’d like to use your TV as a PC monitor you’ll need to make sure it has a port to allow you to connect it. This is usually a VGA port, but some TVs include a newer DVI port. Adaptors are availible to allow VGA to DVI and vice versa.
USB Port No
Socket for connecting devices such as a computers and other components
Contrast Ratio (X:1) 1200
Energy Savings Trust Feature No
A Yes means this this product has been rated as being energy-efficient by the Energy Savings Trust. Good for the environment and good for your electricity bill!
Height in mm 580
Width in mm 780
Depth in mm 100 HD Ready Yes
HD ready is a standard used in Europe to make high definition technology less confusing. The minimum requirements for a TV to wear an HD ready badge are:
• Minimum vertical resolution of 750 pixels (in widescreen format)
• Ability to display 720p and 1080i formats
• An HDMI or Digital Video Interface (DVI interface)

Some HD Ready TVs are also Full HD, meaning an even higher quality picture is possible.

Colour Black
The main colour of the product.
Release Date 12 Dec 2008

Voted cold on the basis that this television is no name branded guff which always suffer from poor motion, bad response and bad viewing angles combined with "grey" blacks. For another £20 you can pickup a decent sammy screen or an LG screen.

You want blacks like this: ( yes those are black borders at top and bottom and you cannot tell the difference from the bezel.

Instead you will get a 1000x worse blacks than this

Hi got my tv yesterday model CTVL32W2HDF , i used a £9 code which is in the vouchers section and then my wifes staff discount and then quidco , i reckon i will have got this for around £209.

Bit more info for people .

I cannot see a headphone socket.
It has pip function , so you can watch DTV and put say ATV in small window etc.
It is heavy for a LCD TV - 22 kg !!!!
Remote is easy to use
It picked up most of freeview channels it didnt find channel 46 for some reason? , not bothered as all the bbc and itvs etc are there.
Speakers on the bottom can come off !!!!!
It has a optical out and subwoofer out.
It has a common interface slot
It has a VGA socket.

I think its a nice piece of kit for money , you can go into argos and even a 19" HD Digital tv is around £130 and a 22" is £180 both acoustic solutions.

Ideally to get this price you need to know someone that works for tesco.

Any othe questions please add to thread

:thumbsup:

Any delay on the pic when watching sport etc?
#25
Hello , i used the XXG8VN code to get the £9 off.

Havent watched to much sport on it but there is a slight lag on fast moving stuff. Its not as smooth as my 42" toshiba in the lounge , but then that tv cost £700

If you want this tv for your lounge i would probably say for another £90 to get the samsung or a better make .
But i only wanted it for a bedroom so thats why its ideal for the price.

I was gonna get a 22" for £180 that was in argos and some of their tvs dont get good reviews. so for a bit extra i went for this one , As my wife works for them we got 10% discount.

I just bought one from a Tesco store in Glasgow. It's matt black finish and, I think, the casing is slightly wider around the screen than most lcd's out there. It's definitely not as slick as the piano black models currently on the market, but hey, when your paying under £250 for a HDMI tv, how can you complain?.
The sound is good & loud, the picture is reasonably clear, and as I bought it mainly for gaming (PS3) using the HDMI cable, it's clear and a very good size to play on.
The wall mount has caused a "scratching of head", as the VESA mounts are 200 x 100. I thought this was pretty small considering the size of the telly. Have just checked eBay, and there is a bracket going for around £12 for it, so all is not lost.
As per a previous comment, you can remove the speakers from it and install your own on it!.

Lastly, whilst setting up PS3, the screen came up with a message of 1920 x 1080 60i - anyone out there can help me with the last part "60i" and what it means??
There is a good amount of inputs and connections to keep most people happy and that they are accessed either from the side (HDMI) or "push up" at the back of screen. Thought I would point this out as whilst looking for a lcd, I noted some models were a "straight" entry rather than the push up style - hope this makes sense!.

Overall, I would rate it at 8 out of 10 - if your not bothered with the look of the matt black finish or an unknown make, it's worth a look and does perform better than some models which are £30-50 more expensive.
