Kogan 32" Full HD , LED Tv - Play.com - £199.00 - Sold by KoganUK

IIIusionIIIusion

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

    FWIK, Kogan do seem to exist at the lower end of the scale, but do represent great VFM...

    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.

    does it map pixels one to one?, ive got a 1080p supermarket tv and it doesn't so the picture is full of artifacts i want one that does but don't want to spend loads on it

    aint the same tv? since on the technical specifications tab on plays website it states this tv has a refresh rate of 50/60hz and on the link you provided its claiming its a 100hz refresh rate

    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

    They'll be around until they fix the lip-sync issues with freeview-hd channels!

    Ha! Well spotted, the pcadvisor review is actually done by the Australian magazine, maybe only available there??

    Found Kogan TV manuals HERE

    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.

    Can you give a link for the 100Hz Kogan TV on their website? I can't seem to see it, I only see the 50/60Hz 32" TV. Thanks.
