Looks like a good deal for a 32 inch LCD. Had a look around and this one's going for £549 on Tesco Direct. Postage is free as well, plus it's wall mountable. Have just ordered one, so will let you know what it's like when it comes.

Here's the blurb

"This 32" High Definition LCD TV from Grundig combines incredible sound, and picture quality, with the latest in digital technology.

This end of line or as new product is in prime condition and is sold complete and fully guaranteed, but may arrive in unprinted, plain packaging."

I don't wish to p1ss on your parade, but the contrast ratio of 1000:1 looks very low; a good plasma will have a ratio of 10,000:1. You may find that blacks are somewhat wishy-washy. Otherwise, the price looks damn good.

Welcome to HUKD greggaiger :)

The only thing that let's it down is only one HDMI connection, but £299 you can't argue with that. :thumbsup:
#6
Thanks all. I figure there are some let downs, but for 300 delivered, even if it isn't great there's always ebay and on to round two!

The Contrast ratio of 1000:1 seems about average / is pretty good at the moment, if you look closer at the specs that state 3000:1 or 10000:1 even you will find they are software enhanced to affect the perceived contrast if that makes sense [tried to over simplify things]

a contrast ratio of 1000:1 is appalling, a good lcd is about 8000:1 and a decent plasma like my pioneer kuro is 16000:1

It's hardly "appalling" when the human eye can only see 1000:1 :thumbsup:
#10
yeh sorry but it means sh1t all past 800 or so.
#11
furthermore, the only tv's with 8000:1 used to be samsung, and when i last looked into it it was all a load of rubbish anyway
#12
BUT if you want to skip the freeview, you can get the same thing for just £249!

But out of stock
#15
the 249 one is out of stock and was posted earlier

@royals did you actually read my whole post, anything past 1500 using gimicky techonology to give the perceived contrast, read up in the detailed specifications of the samsungs and such like if you wish, they will call it all sorts of names

Hi could you please give me a source for this, I really want to know what all this contrast rubbish is. Thanks alot in advance. :thumbsup:
#17
Good deal - only bettered (for my needs) by the ReflexReact!

Voted hot though, as a bedroom TV it will serve my needs but as a lounge TV, I would definitely look somewhere else!

In fact, contrast ratio and resolution aside - unless you get a high grade LCD from a manufacturer like Toshiba who use great digital signal processors(DSP's are THE most important aspect) then your TV picture isn't going to be top notch. Forget specs, read reviews is my motto!

Someone mentioned resolutions and contrast ratio's and not to start a debate but a 1080P display is generally worse for anything but 1080P content, a 720P display is generally worse at displaying standard definition content. If a signal has to be - upconverted to a higher resolution it cannot be better than the source.......not all TV's are created equal though, some are much better than others, ....anyway, this is a good price for a 32" LCD.

For me, at the beginning of 2008, 720P is a good compromise - In 2011 and beyond, if buying new, you would want 1080P...but I don't think we'll be buying plasmas/LCD's then so it may be moot.
As for the contrast ratio, well in a bedroom at night, I'll be happy with 1000:1...it's not rendered useless by any stretch of the imagination(measured is different to claimed anyhoo) - I certainly wouldn't be watching a long anticipated movie on it tho'.

Is the 7000 and 8000 :1 contrast which Samsung advertises on its 32'' LCD's all software enhanced etc...?

I would presume so as its usually "dynamic" contrast. Take that to be what you will :whistling:

How would I know if a contrast is measured "dynamic" or not if the manufacturer doesn't state that?

Usually, is 1000:1 a decent contrast?
#21
Some people are, quite understandably, a tad confused about what contrast ratio is...its only geeks and super-cool people like me who know what it means and how it is measured. Please don't jump down my throat if you know more - I know more too, it's not aimed at you:

Contrast ratios are in layman's terms, obviously, a measure of graduations in greys(largely a measure of the difference between pure black and pure white, and the different greys that can be made in between)....since white is quite easy for even average TV's its the blacks that matter. Black is difficult on LCD's because of pixel bleed(one pixel emitting light next to one that isn't, the light penetrates the next pixel and it in turn emits a tiny amount of light) but not so difficult on Plasma's - the aforementioned pioneer is especially superb because of it's physical display characteristics that is unique to the pioneer.(waffle). Plasma are generally better than LCD's for black. LCD's are generally better for their richness, and vibrancy of colours but because black is an integral part(believe it or not) in producing natural colours, plasmas are considered better - in terms of natural colour.

But again, don't worry about it...spend a few quid on magaizines and read the reviews online...that's your best bet. You can't really win either way, unless you go mental and get the Pioneer!

For my opinion, if its plasma go for Pioneer then failing that Panasonic(my own), if it's LCD go for Toshiba or Hitachi!

ONE GOLDEN RULE TO REMEMBER: You can't compare TV's on specs, you either need to see TV's set-up side-by-side in exactly the same way or trust people's opinions who do it for a living. Specs are absolutely second place!
#22
Having read the comments above tech people is this a good buy ?
#23
It depends where you plan on putting it - its a good price certainly but...

For 'high-definition' content it will be an improvement over your CRT, for standard definition stuff (everything unless you have a SKY HD box, blu-ray or Hd player - if you aren't sure you definitely dont) it will be a MUCH worse(perceived) picture.

If you want a slim TV for the bedroom, it will be very adequate. If you want a slim TV for the lounge you will need to spend more.....

So where do the Grundig discount codes hide?

has anyone actually ever got a tv from this web site. it seems an email collection site. i have tried several times and never got one. don't give your personal email. use a disposable one. voted cold.
#27

The only thing that let's it down is only one HDMI connection, but £299 you can't argue with that. :thumbsup:

A HDMI splitter would sort that out though wouldn't? Or do they cause problems in terms of quality?? They are about £30.

yes, i got one from this site before xmas, a Grundig 26" lcd with freeview for £280, it's for kids bedroom, tv is fine with sky digital and excellent with ps3, normal analogue reception is poor but hey so is everything after hd viewing.

The power lead was of wrong type, sent kettle style rather than 2 pin vcr style but a quick phone call and they sent another.

Tv is mounted on wall and uses a 6 hole configuration on the back which is vesa standard, this worked out ok as i only used 4 holes which allowed me to off centre the mount to suit wall stud which was slightly off centre anyway.

Overall I am pleased with sale, tv has many connections, hdmi, svideo, pc, but time will tell for reliability, however for the quoted £300, original post seems a good deal.

Agree with previous post about plasma/lcd/contrast debate, i have a 42" panasonic in main lounge and the grundig would not replace main tv.
#31
OK OK this is all very helpfull but my question is
My mum (84 years old) 19 inch CRT has gone belly up. She als has a vcr and Set top freeview box supplied by Telewest.

Will this TV be a good replacement

Thanks
#32
for £300, of course it would be a good buy, u could also do away with the freeview box as the tv has integrated freeview, picture quality would be fine for tha "auld yin" providing u have a digital freeview arial (wideband), if u don't some channels may not be available.

p.s. i thought vcr's and tapes were all stored in loft's around the country!
#33
The £249 and £299 have now been deleted from site i have e mailled them and ask them for future availabilty there is a link on the site it crashes thou still no response from yesterdays direct e mail !!!!!

I was planning to plug the Cable feed direct to the tv freeview socket and the terrestrial arial into the vcr then feed the vcr to the tv via scart
That will work wont it
#35
yes that will work, here is another link for 32" @ £249.99 says out of stock, a link to inform u when it is available.
