This offer starts 7th June, and I thought this was a great deal for the price.At £259.99 it not only beats Morrisons £265.00 for a similar spec 40" TV, but also includes a 3 year warranty for piece of mind.

No, it's not a well known brand, it's e-Motion branded, but too be honest, for this price, that's not really important, as realistically you shouldn't be expecting a Panasonic or Sony.That's not to say it's not a good TV, as IMO a brands quality assurance means less and less these days, as the focus now is more on price and features.In reality it's probably a rebadged OEM set, but using a well known manufacturers LCD panel, and so quality will at least be the same as others in the sub £300 price for around this size, but maybe better.

Very good spec for the price, with a useful PVR function via USB, this will need a USB flash memory device, but don't worry always lots of deals for these on HUKD

Pin-sharp picture and brilliant colour - this is the next best thing to being at Euro 2012.

Sleek and stylish
1080p resolution screen
Built-in DVB-T tuner to receive digital TV and radio stations
Freeview
USB Multimedia and PVR functionality†

BTW for those that would rather wall mount they will also be doing a suitable bracket for £14.99.

Quite agree, my son has got a Tevion portable DVD player, and after 4 years it still works great, and still holds a long enough charge for a DVD!

Bargain just for the box surely let alone the dish?

I wonder what I can pick up using this and the existing ex-Sky dish that's on the wall of my house already?

Bargain indeed, I got the portable version for my caravan last year, and they also have in right now the portable HD version for £59.99.If you look at lyngsat.com, you'll be able to find all of the available FTA channels you'd be able to watch.

Cheap but no Freeview HD and high energy consumption. Voted hot but given the extra power you'll end up paying for over the lifespan of the set you may be better looking for a slightly more expensive, more efficient TV (that would then be more likely to ship with an HD tuner)

I see that it is Band D energy consumption but, unlike white goods, I cannot find the definition of the bands. What exactly does band D mean? What is its energy consumption?

You will be able to use your existing dish - but the EPG will drive you mad. oO

Don't overestimate the value of the Dish - I bought a standard 60cm Sky minidish with quad LNB and 20 metres of shotgun cable on eBay for under £18 including delivery - and that's not luck, that's the standard price from dozens of sellers.

To be honest it's not really a massive bargain, and you're better off buying an OpenBox (HD) for about £50-60 imo.

I think that's a massive exaggeration, mate. If you calculate the cost of the extra electricity, you will be surprised how little you save by buying a more efficient set. Definitely not enough assuming the lifespan of the TV is 3 or 4 years.

I would love to calculate the cost of the extra electricity if someone will tell me what "band D" actually means. Unless you all know I can't see how you can argue about energy efficiency & cost.

3 year warranty with aldis means nothing.. we bought a tv it went wrong in the 2nd year was told the warranty company is nothing to do with aldis and that they went out of business.. new warranty company still not associated with aldis.. so if going for this for the 3 year warranty then think again

Thank you for the energy list. I know that they expect you to use the 24.5/36 & 36"/42" figures or average the numbers either side but it must have taken a genius to do a list that didn't have the most popular tv sizes - 32in & 40in - included.

obviously you've had a bad experience, and an unfortunate one. But it would be pretty unlucky for Aldi to chose a 2nd company to take care of the warranties (if indeed it was Aldi, and not the manufacturer) which go out of business.

It'll be per year.

From a link on the Which website 'TV energy running costs':
"We’ve calculated annual energy costs of 184 televisions and found they vary between £4 and £89 per year.

Also from Which, an interesting article showing how over 5 years, your cheap TV could actually cost more than one you paid a couple of hundred more for:

Where did the "Band D" come from? I see no mention of it on the advert?
#27
How would you work out what band a tv would be in? All I can get for my tv is:

Consumption (Typical W) - 150
Stand-by (Cable card on) - under 1w
DC Off (W) 0.1

Anyone got a full spec sheet for this? Need to know response time as I will probably use it for gaming

Jockettuk - Don't forget your UK consumer rights - just reject it with the retailer (Aldi) under the sale of goods act - items have to be of reasonable quality (and therefore last a reasonable period which depending on the product / price -is up to 6 years I believe).

Look at the bottom left of the picture on the product page, next to all the HDMI, Freeview, etc logos, the wee orange label states - 'D ENERGY RATING'

looking at the remote, this may be the manufacturer.

With regards the energy consumption over the year, all you really need to be concerned with is the wattage used when powered on, and simply times that by the hours you watch for per day or week, times into the year, and then divide by 1000, for your amount of KwH, and then times by your KwH rate, and that's your annual running cost give or take a few quid.

based on the chart posted, if carrying a D rating, that means it'll only cost you approx £20-£25 more than an A rated set, so over the 5 years you'd probably keep it for, that's about £100-£125 more in electricity costs, however bear in mind that this is of course spread over your electricity payments, so wouldn't really notice a great deal, wheras having to paying say £400 for a similar TV up front might not be something you're able or prepared to do, although if that's a real problem, then perhaps you need to question whether you really need a TV this big.I'm amazed at how TV viewing has changed since I used to sell them in the mid 80s, where a good rule of thumb was to choose a TV screen size approx 20% the viewing distance, so 20" & 22" TV's were the most popular, and funny enough cost a lot more than they do today, even more so in real terms.Nowadays, because TV's are so cheap, it seems everyone wants the biggest TV they can get, whether it's really suitable or no, and on that basis, this is AFAIK the best deal you'll get for such a big screen.

They certainly seem to have been the manufacturer of other e-Motion TVs if Google is to be believed.
