This will be the second tv I have bought from Kogan , the first was the same model in 26" and so far it has done exactly what it says on the tin.
Now before all the flamers come out and say that it isnt up to the quality of the latest 3d viera ... thats because this is an entry level 1080 led.
The quality of the image is clear and crisp (my other 26" is used for a study monitor and is perfect for what I need)

The usual problem is there ... due to how thin the unit is the sound is poor.
I have resolved this in my study by buying a small soundbar (on rollback from asda (£8) which is gloos black and very stylish .. this gives great sound for what I need it for and sits at the base of the unit.

I know that some people will say "its not a deal if you have to buy a soundbar" .... im not saying this ... merely that to ENHANCE the "average" sound on this model this is an option.

Anyways ... personally I think for under £200 this is a bargain and perfect for people who just want an entry level Tv without all the bells and whistles.

Kogan products seem to offer great value for money,not able to comment on their tv's but I have one of their HD Camcorders for which I payed £80 and it is equal to my panasonic at £250 and the sd card plays straight away on the laptop with no conversion,heat added

Would probably be better to order from Kogan after reading about 'Plays.com's warranties.Same price and extended warranty can be added.

Kogan's 32in Full HD 100Hz LED TV does a good job of displaying TV as long as you’re not expecting the utmost in picture quality. Its speakers are better than we expected in a cheap TV, as well, and the PVR functionality comes in handy. Kogan's main problem comes in the form of ever-lower prices from big-name competitors like Samsung, Sony and Panasonic.

Fair point, though if you follow the link in the review it takes you to the Kogan web page where this 100hz model is also £199 with free delivery. There seems to be a "C" at the end of the model name with the 100hz set so not sure if Play have got their spec sheet wrong or it is different. Looks a cracking deal either way. I would probably do as post # 4 says and buy direct from Kogan.

Cannot find any reviews for this specific model, but these reviews say something about the brand...

http://www.techradar.com/reviews/audio-visual/televisions/plasma-and-lcd-tvs/kogan-fhdled26-924150/review Poor pictures and sound mar an otherwise well-designed TV with novel USB recording

http://reviews.cnet.co.uk/tvs/kogan-elite-led22-review-50001844/ The Kogan Elite LED22 has some neat features, such as its USB recording capability, but its performance in terms of colour and contrast performance is disappointing.

http://reviews.cnet.co.uk/tvs/kogan-elite-led40-review-50003881/ The 40-inch, 1080p Kogan Elite LED40 may have a low price tag, but poor picture quality and less-than-impressive audio mean this LED TV isn't the bargain it may seem to be.

http://reviews.cnet.co.uk/tvs/kogan-elite-led-bd32-review-50002641/ The 32-inch Kogan Elite LED-BD32 is a decent TV, but it's not as much of a bargain as you might think. Still, if having a built-in Blu-ray player is important to you, this TV might well be of interest.

Tomorrow freeview HD is going live in our area, and I don't think it will be that long until standard free views tuners go out of fashion.

Oh, and you're buying it direct from Kogan on play.com, if you look closely KoganUK are the PlayTrader selling the item

I bought this tv via the kogan ebay outlet for the same price. Definite VFM. I love it, and it totally beats all other 32inch in the sub-200 pound range. I can't fault the picture quality, though crisp enough for blu ray, and other hd content, don't expect it to be a second monitor as the pixel smoothness isn't their on close inspection.

three points to note before you buy it:

1) The DTV/freeview menus are not the best, only showing whats on that hour, and does not show what is coming up when scrolling through the guide, to check the next hour it requires digging through each channel one by one.

2) The pvr is great for pausing live tv (if you can find a usb stick that works with it.. half seem to give a "read speed too low" warning, and fat32 only) but it is not that useful otherwise as you can only record the channel your on, and If you change inputs the pvr stops. Its okay for scheduled recording and can record with the screen off.

3) basically no codec support in its usb hard drive setting, so don't expect to use it to watch anything you didn't record yourself with the pvr (records only in .ts, and doesn't seem to read anything else)

The sound is pretty terrible, but I always use a sound system anyways.. no tv has a sub.

As far as 1:1 pixel mapping, I use hdmi so I haven't seen what it does to sd inputs. From my pc and ps3 it passes the mapping test on this site http://pixelmapping.wikispaces.com/Pixel+mapping+explained
But I'm not really sure if that counts.

Not going too OT here, but is this now the general consensus on LED backlit LCD TVs? You're just going to refer to them all as LED TVs? So what happens when LED TVs actually become mainstream?

Yeah thats almost the same one from PLAY.COM, if you look at the specification on the KOGAN website it says "KULED32XXXAC" and the title on PLAY.COM says "Kogan 32 Inch 1080p HD LED TV With PVR And Digital Tuner / Kogan KULED32XXXA / Freeview"

The one @Kogan website has a C at the end?

For that link on the Kogan website, on the Overview tab it says:

Built-in Digital TV Tuner
Watch all of the latest SD digital TV channels without the need for an additional set-top box.


So, no Freeview HD (just standard Freeview), and on the Specifications tab it says:

Panel Refresh Rate: 50/60Hz

So, not 100Hz either (as I tink was stated in another post)...

I emailed Kogan to ask if the TV had really good sound, and their reply was:

This TV has a good sound quality and we would recommend checking reviews on the internet.

So, I'm tempted to buy one and if the quality is poor rejecting it for being "not as described". In what way is the sound from the built-in speakers poor? I'm not expecting cinema quality, but I would like to be able to use it without the need for an external sound system.
#33
Because the unit us so thin... I personally find the sound to be to hollow.
There is next to no noticeable bass so when I am downstairs listening to the superb sound out of my TV and sound system them come upstairs and listen to this its very noticeable just how"average it is"
It all comes down to opinions... some may heart the sound and say"that's pretty good for such a thin TV" but because I work around technology I know that a cheap soundbar can double my experience without taking away any visual impact.

Like I said... Just opinions. Kogan will say its great as its their product but I think you would struggle to use the "not as described" issue to gain a refund.
Plus why would you buy something when your already working out how to return it?

Above is the link but post 29 is right. I swear this was 100hz when I checked and post 17 seems to suggest an agreement. Had Kogan updated/changed the spec on their web site?? The model now on this link is clearly only HD Ready and 50/60Hz.

As someone with a degree of expertise in this area, could you recommend some cheap soundbars to go with this TV?

I suggest you consider the LG 32LK450 for £250 from Richer Sounds... http://www.richersounds.com/product/lcd-led-tvs/lg/32lk450u/lg-32lk450

Review... http://www.which.co.uk/technology/tv-and-dvd/reviews/led--lcd-and-plasma-tv/lg-32lk450/review/

Score 61% ('Best Buy' status is >65%)

Pros: Good SD and HD pictures, above-average sound, decent connections

Cons: No Freeview HD, poor manuals, transparent backgrounds on menus and EPG

It's not an 'Edge-Lit LED' like the Kogan, but that's probably a good thing, as it won't suffer from the bleeding, clouding & banding that plague 'Edge-Lit LEDs'.

Thanks, but I'm specifically looking for an LED TV (thinner, lower power consumption, etc).

Anyone know where I can get a cheap soundbar from?
#39
I have taken a closer look at Kogan and on their website they fail to disclose their address, which all UK eCommerce companies are required to do by both the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 and the Electronic Commerce Regulations 2002. I have advised them of their legal obligation in this regard, but they continue to choose to break the law. As such, I for one will be avoiding a company that refuses to comply with even the most basic elements of UK consumr law. I dread to think what would happen if there were any sort of problem with a purchase.

Best of luck to anyone that has purchased from them.

I bought one of these last week and **** me I can't get it to play any movie format. I've tried;

AVI, MPG, MP4 on a USB stick and a power external hard drive. Anyone had any joy, I've tried contacting Kogan direct but they haven't responded yet and that was Friday monring. Not too chuffed to be honest.
