I was looking for a 19 or 22" LCD TV for the bedroom and noticed this new model has just appeared on the Argos website and reduced to a lower price than its 19" equivalent (still showing at £249).

£100 off this TV is a very good deal imo! I bought one this afternoon and am very pleased with it. It has a high contrast ratio for the price (15,000:1) and a good viewing angle (160degrees).

Enjoy!

Yes you could, but that may not be a lot cheaper in the end anyway.

So £135 for the monitor, £30 for the freeview box, £15 for a multi hdmi adapter if you have more than one hdmi source to input to the screen.

Then there are the speakers, I don't know how good the speakers are on this tv but the ones on cheap monitors are invariably awful.

So a tv with everything built in may well represent the better option for someone over a cheaper monitor

Ok, go with RS then

MATHS FAIL.
That still works out way cheaper than this god awful deal. Even with your idiotic inflated prices (30 for a freeview box! 15 for multi HDMI! lol) The richer sounds deal is way better so your deal is almost unfathomably cold

Lol, have you noticed when you zoom in to the picture on argos, it says 'Full HD' on the top right corner? :D

Thanks for your opinion mascherano, it would be more helpful if you were a bit more constructive with your comments rather than jumping on members :)

get a monitor

good deal... for a 22" but its also worth noting if you have another £100 you can get a decent 32" - you'll get much more tv for your money!!

or you could get one of those budget 26" tv's from argos for £200, if you don't care for quality as much...
#11
Bought one of these last week from Currys For £199.99

Very pleased with it, 22'' was the perfect size for our bedroom

good deal

I'm finding the feedback quite amusing here. First of all, I think its ridiculous to suggest buying a "monitor" as an alternative to this and then bolting on a separate freeview box, that just adds unecessary wires, connectivity issues etc. Secondly, I don't see how the richersounds deal is so much better, the refresh rate is substandard to this one?! Thirdly, if I wanted a bigger tv for my bedroom I would have bought a bigger tv!

I think this offer is great value for money for a tv of this size. It beats the budget brands hands down in terms of quality.

Enjoy your monitors, maybe you should attach a keyboard and mouse too just for good measure! :thinking: :-D

You seem to have misunderstood my post so I will try to clarify it.

A suggestion was made that buying a monitor and a separate freeview box was a cheaper way to achieve the same thing.

This is a perfectly valid suggestion and a solution I use myself, all I was doing was pointing out to anyone considering doing it that way instead that there were some other points to consider as well, such as connectivity, speakers etc.

£30 may be an inflated price for an hdmi equipped freeview box, however £15 for a 3 to 1 switchable hdmi adapter is not and that is not taking into account the component and scart connections that may well be important to someone.

If you can find a decent 22" monitor with all of the connectivity of this television, with decent speakers (most speakers on cheap monitors are not up to much) and a separate freeview box that connects over hdmi for an amount significantly less than a tv like this one in order to offset the extra hassle of having a multibox solution with extra power points, extra remotes etc then a link would be handy.

As for the comparison between this deal and the one at richer sounds then on the face of it the RS one is a better deal, however just because a monitor has a higher resolution does not necessarily make it better, although it may very well be.

When comparing the two tv deals mentioned here it is worth noting that the one at argos claims to be 1680x1050 which is a 16:10 ratio screen whereas the richer sounds one is 1920x1080 i.e. a 16:9 ratio so depending on how the former handles a change in source ratio to display ratio the RS one may well be better for watching freeview. If you have a PS3 as well and plan to use it with the tv from argos then there is a good chance it will stretch the image vertically to fill the screen which would not be great.

Ignorance? a bit like not understanding the original post?

They didn't post a deal for a monitor, it was a post for a TV, how difficult is that to grasp?

It's getting ridiculous on this site where folk post a decent deal and then the feedback starts comparing the deal against something unrelated and then the original deal gets lost in irrelevant feedback.

Tends to be worst around geeky stuff like computer/gaming equipment.

If you want a monitor with a seperate freeview box and all the extra cabling (2 remotes?) then why not start a seperate thread showing your deal?

Now back to the original post - I believe it was a TV..

I'd rather buy a Samsung T220HD for around £190-£200 than this :thumbsup:

A 22 inch LG TV for £200, sounds good to me.

If you posted a Rolls Royce for Mondeo money someone would say a Clio is cheaper and better!

Link, reason:roll:


Will this do for you? :p (plus 10% credit back at the moment and Quidco as well - although I'm not a huge fan of CDiscount).

and reason(s) if I do need to justify my post - it's cheaper, it gets excellent reviews and has a better panel. :whistling:

Plus Samsung are generally regarded as better than LG. :thumbsup:

Now go roll your eyes at someone else :-D

There's also a T240HD (24" version) in some Asda stores for £200 at the moment - but I'll let you look for the link on here to that...

That too looks like a good deal, however it too has a 16:10 screen ratio, do you know how it deals with a 16:9 input source as if it doesn't do it properly then the one at RS looks like the better all round option
#22
Good deal,but to be honest, most people that buy 22" telly's do so for the bedroom or kitchen, were price is the important factor and not necessarily brand and picture quality, so something like This
with a 3 year warranty I think would be a better bet

Can someone who has bought this TV please confirm exactly what PC inputs this has ?
Is it just a 15 pin Analogue or does it definitley have DVI for PC's
Thanks

Well, I reckon this is a good deal. Not outstanding, but hot enough. I'm forever getting Argos vouchers in the post, there are plenty of local stores so collect, they give 3mths 0%, they're excellent at taking returns if there's any problems...all those make it more appealing to me personally than some of the other comments posted above.

I don't want a load of extra cables trailing around in the kids bedrooms, so a monitor may be a solution for some, but not me.

Each to their own opinion.

I've always had good service from Ebuyer.

I bought a monitor the other day with free 5 day delivery and it still came in one day.

As for tv's for the bedroom I still like the older CRT tv's as almost everything on tv is standard def and I think it looks better on the older tv's.

I don't have any games machines or Blu Ray etc.

I am also looking for a 22in tv for my daughter's bedroom but she wants a dvd as well, so i think i'll be getting this one. http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/5294330/c_1/1|category_root|Home+entertainment+and+sat+nav|12108813/c_2/2|cat_12108813|Televisions|12108983/c_3/3|cat_12108983|14+inch+to+24+inch+LCD+TVs|12108998.htm.
I do think though if your only needing the tv then the LG is a good choice, i certainly couldn't be bothered with getting a monitor and everything else to go with it, plus as already said you have the wires trailing, unsightly and unnecessary mess if you ask me.

I've read a few reviews of a similar LG on Amazon (the LG3000). A few people complain about the picture stretching automatically to the edge of screen which distorts the image (depending on input of course). They say you can't override this ?. Anyone with this TV already want to comment on this ?
#31
In my experience most set top boxes are a bags of nails,
better results via an integrated tv which most are now anyway.
#32
can this TV be wall mounteD?, and would the stub stick out when wall mounted(like previous LG MODELS)

I bought this last week, from Cdiscount (179.99 with 20% credit account back) plus free delivery. It has every connection at the back, it's brilliant. The picture is fine, you can adjust it to what you want. For instance, if you set your graphics card at a different picture res. than the tv, it will look bad. If it is set the same, there is nothing wrong with it. The picture I get from freesat box (uses a scart) is not like hdtv show I get from downloading a tv (of course). But it is a bargain at Cdiscount, don't get it from Argos (unless you intend to take it back). Also if you have not got a tv license give a fake name for delivery (I did). I also remember buying a tv from Argos years ago, they wanted my name and address (to send to the tv people, I collected instore aswell). Maybe now you have to give proof of address I don't know.

You can't wall mount this either, as all the connections are at the back, loads of them, plus on the side there are the buttons to control the tv if you lose the remote I suppose, plus 3mm headphone socket at the side. A good thing about this is no matter if there is light coming into the room, there is zero reflection, just the picture nothing else.

If this had picture in picture, it would be 10 stars, as I have to switch from monitor to tv, which is easy enough by the remote, but I would have loved to have half a screen tv, and half a screen pc monitor. Also if you have a pc plugged in, games console or whatever, each environment is set a certain way (picture, contrast, backlight e.t.c) and is kept like that each time you switch to it, which is great.

So whoever said you can't overide what picture you see, yes you can, you can change from 16.9 to whatever, and change resolution, lots of different control options.

Whoa! Can I ask a question? Seen talk of using a monitor as a TV but only with HDMI. Well My monitor has DSUB and DVI inputs. Can I buy something that will take a freewiew box scart? Soz for the non googled Q but really wanted to ask while people are about and need to go out right now so asking first.

Scart to dvi, I think you could buy a cable for that, try amazon, I was going to buy the fuji. siems. hd monitor and use it as a tv using a converter cable scart or component to hdmi or something, but after researching is was not worth the hassle incase it didn't work, I just went for the Cdiscount one with everything built in, plus with every connection you can imagine, paid a little extra, but was worth it. I didn't want to be stuck with all those cables and a monitor that I couldn't get to work as a tv aswell, but if you already have the monitor and a freeview box, just buy a cable converter, probably less than a tenner.

If you buy a pre-paid mastercard, you can pay in 3 installments, they take the first payment from the card, then just bin it, voila, a tv for 1/3rd of the price:thumbsup:
