This is my first post hope it's HOT for someone, I've just bought this 26" TV and it came with wall mountable fixings in the box, my local store had several in stock. There is was also a 32" reduced from £349.99 to £249.99, not sure on stock for those. Online still shows the full price so it's instore only. Managed to get my sky remote to work with it also, don't forget nectar points.

You should edit the title, it's HD ready, not Full HD. This means it doesn't display 1080p without downscaling.

Thanks I've just put it how it is on Sainsburys site.

That was over a month ago... I thought I read somewhere that deals can be reposted if they're older than a month (and still valid of course :P)

I missed this first time around, so thanks for the repost - quite tempted by this as a second telly! I don't mind reposts to be honest as, like this one, they can help people that missed the original post... Have some heat :thumbsup:

I saw one today when i was looking for a panasonic. They look very poor in my honest opnion. I guess they are ok if you are on a tight budget but i would definatly consider spending a bit more for some quality. It only takes a bit of research.

I feel a bit bad now.
#10
Hot deal, i also seen the 32" version down from £350 to £250 in the mddlesbrough branch, i would have got one but i got the one off cdiscount for £250 a couple of weeks ago and i am very happy with that:thumbsup:

How good is this TV? At this price, worth getting? I have an LG Flatron 22" TV/monitor, and that is currently away being fixed under warranty (just stopped working one day :x ) and I am suffering playing my xbox through my monitor with no sound.

Was thinking of getting this Red TV (26") so when I get my flatron back, I will use that as my monitor and sell my current PC monitor - just not sure how good these Sainsburys own TVs are?
#12
I was quite impressed with them to be honest, they were playing in the local store and its a good picture. If I needed one I would get one of those, but touch wood my current CRT is still going strong.

its 299 on the website...

I too have a LG Flatron TV/monitor which has only got an analogue receiver - the reception even with a strong signal leaves a lot to be desired on some channels. The RED 26" that I have just bought has a crisp, clear picture, no motion blur, has freeview and is great for a 2nd/bedroom tv. I have no complaints at this price.
#15
Good Telly, recommended, bought 1 month ago, runs Blu-ray & HD lovely. only (very minor) complaint is the built-in freeview is the same as the £10 set top boxes, so might not last forever, then again you won't currently buy a better telly for £195
#16
Not sure about quality of the TV, but it's a very good price for the size.
#17
I went to buy one of these at my local store a few weeks ago as a second TV the conservatory.

After enquiring as to the offer duration, stock number etc, I turned around to see a UMC 26" freeview and built in DVD for the same price £199. Last one in the store and got it for £179.

2 x scart
2 x HDMI
PC Connectivity
vesa 400 x 200

Excellent VFM, especially for the kids to play DVD's/Wii and for me when I'm in the doghouse for watching the footy.

All I need to do now is sort out aerial from the sky box !

Bought a great wall mount off the internet too. Can't remember the site, but based in Kent.

Marked at full price instore at Norwich asked them to check price on the till and came out at reduced price.
So best to get them to check instore.

I know this may sound like a stupid question, but does the TV come with a remote? :)

Also, definitely no PC connection?

I bought this TV as a result of the 1st time it was posted about 1 month ago. The verdict so far is WELL WORTH the money....

If you dont require all bells singing and dancing and 1080p, which simply in my opinion is not needed as 720p is perfectly fine. Then is a cracking TV for £200.

I was unlucky on my 1st one, as the freeview tuner went after 1 week, and i suspect this was due to a dodgy dowload of software overnight automatically to it for the freeview. I was looking for some sort of facory reset command in the manual, but the manual is quite brief as you'd expect from a cheaper TV.

Anyway, i took it back to Sainsburys, who exhanged it there and then for another one. It was funny cause although it was the same model and everything, it was a different batch. So when i got home, it actually had slightly different layout for connections, for the better actually. And that one has been spot on sice.

Freeview is great, and menu is good. Xbox 360 through component 720p is quality, better than my 22 inch PC monitor through VGA. VGA is known to be washed out in comparison to component, Certainly seems to be the case in my example. And the Contrast is fine on this TV.

Not having VGA for a PC connection is a blow, but that can be sorted by using a DVI to HDMI and then carry sound through a different way. Not tried this, but i know people who this on other TV's.

All in all, I'd defo reccomend this TV. I cant see too much difference between this and my dads 26inch Panosonic which he paid around £150 more for just after christmas.

Yes it's a joke, unless the poster was unlucky!! Bought one yesterday and there IS a remote control.

Picture quality is good for £195 TV, my only niggle is that the TV is a bit thicker than some of the better quality TVs so stands off the wall a bit more. But can't really grumble for the price.

Definitely no PC connection but 2 HDMI's and I think component inputs

Preston branch in Lancashire had 6 in stock yesterday, mine is fully working now and yeah it's not the best but its a second t.v. for conservatory and I am well impressed, plays the wii brilliantly and the sky remote works too!
#31
Have purchased one today
well impressed for the money.
no wall mount fixings in the box though, anyone know what the bolt size to go into the tv for the bracket is?
#32
I walk past the TVs in Nottingham Castle Marina Sainburys everyday at lunch time (hoping to persuade myself to buy one). The RED series of TVs have been reduced for several months but today I noticed they have all gone back to original price (£399 for 32" and £299 for 26"). If they are this price in your store, buy them quick.....

My GF bought one yesterday in Derby. Apparently the staff were a bit :x as they hadn't been told about the price reduction. It was showing as 299 on the shelf, but when it scanned, it went through as 199... HTH!
