Kinda hard to find reviews as it looks like a Richer Sounds exclusive set, would be great if an owner of this set can give an opinion exclusive to us HUKD members :thumbsup:.

I can find owners new to hd tv's say the picture quality is excellent but i would like a second opinion from someone who's less of a stranger to HD,

I currently own a Samsung 26" LCD which is around 3 years old so would like a suitable upgrade in picture quality.

Any advice appreciated

I've got one, I exchanged the LG I got from Richer Sounds for this as the LG was faulty. I paid £349 for it.
At the moment I'm only using it as a monitor so I can't say how TV looks through it but I'm very happy with it so far. I've played standard DVD & some HD stuff through it & it's behaved itself fine. The USB slot is only for picture playback, i haven't looked for any kind of crack or upgrade to play movie files through it.

I can't say anything against it, bloody good piece of kit for £329.

What sort of use do u get out of it as a monitor? Office use? Or just connected up to have a play?

Having a think about a 32" to replace my 28 inch hannsg which has this nasty habit or requiring a cool down period of 30 mins after use before it will let you switch it back on else it shows a pure white screen, quite annoying really.

Haven't used it for gaming much yet but it's fine for office & browsing.

I would do a bit more homework on it.... correct, but it's not quite as simplistic as you imply; a commonly misinterpreted area of the SOGA, the main words are "UP TO" and in any case, unless you are looking for a full-time pastime to fill those long lonely hours, and thrive on hassle as well as liking a gamble, then don't rely on it to such extreme interpretation!

The Sale of Goods act is what it is, try giving them a call they are very informative and gave me clear indication that I had up to 5 years with my Tv.
regardless of make etc you have the right to call up 2 places
1. The store that sold you the product
2. The company that make the tv
They are by right allowed to either repair the fault(within 5 years) if they can't repair it they will give you a like for like or replacement.
I would never buy an "extended warranty" on anything....it's a "money making" scam

Review by sprayengo.

I purchased this TV a few weeks ago and after this amount of time I'm still very impressed on the whole. I also own a Sony 32V5500 and that cost me a good £100 more a few months ago (which was a total bargain at the time) and this TV has been purchased now for another room.

I think with some tweaking the colour, contrast and tone look really convincing and "pop" like you'd expect from a more expensive tv. I set up using the feature on the "Life" blu-ray and then tweaked a little to my own tastes. I still find myself saying "Woah..." out loud when I watch a blu-ray on it.

I had been told by the salesman in Richer Sounds that I should really think about an LG or a Samsung instead as "several customers have reported awful blurring and ghosting on this particular set." which worried me - ignore this if you have a similar experience. I've read elsewhere that Richer Sounds often try to push customers towards LG/Samsung rather than Sony / Panasonic / Toshiba for some reason. More commission? Higher profit margins? Who knows? It worried me but I still went for it as the spec is either so much better than other sets at the same price or the sets with similar spec look ugly as sin (sorry Samsung but I really can't stand how they insist on a curved lower part of the TV and often with nasty plastic with blue or red colours on them).

Anyway, blurring is not any more of an issue with the TV than its counterparts. I was studying the picture from about 10 inches away as the salesman had worried me and I can confirm that this talk of awful blurring is nonsense. I've seen worse on £1000 HDTVs. I noticed some judder on highly detailed panning shots of high-contrast landscapes on the Planet Earth and Life blu-rays (tested with Toshiba BDX-2000 blu-ray and PS3) but not to the point that it spoilt the experience. I saw no evidence of "ghosting" effects which characterises older sets or cheaper own-brand TVs. I tested a few games: Uncharted 2 (contrasty, fast moving scenes), Killzone 2 (dark scenes), FIFA 10 (testing blur on the ball) and there are no real problems. It struck me that on this TV more than most (including my V5500), the black scenes really are BLACK but still hold the detail, even in low light. No problems with response times if its set to game mode.

Watching standard freeview TV is what you'd expect. If you're after a TV just to watch Corrie on an SD signal, save yourself some cash and buy an alba for £200. A feature-rich TV isn't for you. Wildlife programs looks quite good on the 665 I suppose and flicking the "Resolution+" feature on and off really shows up the extra detail the processor is digging out of the dirty SD signal. Other filters, noise reduction and so on are best left turned off I find as they just interfere more and even cause a loss of detail on HD sources. EPG is average. It has a colour coded system to show types of program but this fails on a basic level by having programs categorised incorrectly and by cluttering the interface with colours and labels all over the place on a bright white background. The remote is quite nice though. Very few unnecessary buttons, large numbered buttons, a selection wheel, well laid out.

Sound is quite impressive. It could never be described as "tinny" with some good highs, lows and mediums after a bit of tweaking. Some resonating buzz at times if you like your bass turned up high (I definitely don't).

My major issue with the TV is that the taken-for-granted HDMI-CEC features (Regza-link, Viera link, Bravia Sync or whatever you want to call it) seem to be absent. I'm certain that the Toshiba BDX-2000 BD player I have has Regza Link and I assumed that the TV, being a Regza, would support it also. I'm hoping to find a firmware update or even a custom firmware which will allow this feature. I'm unsure if I could use firmware from the 32AV635DB as I've seen that the user interface looks remarkably similar. If anybody can help me out, PLEASE send me a PM or something. I would love to control the Blu Ray while its hidden away in the cabinet. Contact me and I'll give you a reward of five pounds if it works!

Summary.

Good
1080p/24p
Accurate colour
Good response time for gamers
Resolution+ is excellent
No fuss remote
Blacks = black
Sleek looks - flat with right angles, minimalistic
£330

Bad
EPG is clumsy
Resonating vibrations if sound is at certain settings
WHERE is Regza Link!? Tell me!


Hope this review helps some folks. There aren't really any proper reviews out there for the set so this should help a few folks make a decision. I say go for it - there isn't a better TV for £330 that I know of. If not this, take a look at the Toshiba 32AV635DB with similar specs but 720p and a bit uglier if you ask me (although I just noticed its come down to £309 on Amazon).

Of course it is a scam, any insurance, no the complete system of CAPITALISM is a scam.

"Try giving THEM a call?" Who are THEM?
The Sale of Goods Act is not a Person! Nor does it have a telephone number! :?

Most times it requires enforcing through the Civil Courts... the County Court - the Small Claims system initially

But....
1. quoting yourself as an authoritative source IS NOT a valid reference!
Try finding someone who has actually gone through this, and got a full repair after 5 years 11 months without a lot of hassle when no extended guarantee is held

That apart,
2. Just because the law APPEARS to offer certain conditions does not mean they are certain and it is NOT the same as getting those conditions applied, and at best it will require quite a fight.... that's why Solicitors and Barristers make such a good living!

Often it is hard enough getting an extended warranty to pay out, let alone get something sorted without having one!
#15
I brought this model from Richer Sounds a few weeks ago for £350, been having problems with sound becoming distorted from all sources after the tv has been playing for a couple of hours. Turning off and on sorts this out but will be sending back. Picture quality is average, not as great as expected. 4x HDMI ports definately a bonus though.

The change of colour doesn't make what you say any more true than the black text.

You are spouting about things you obviously know nothing about, yet repeat it on several threads. You are taking the issue without interpretation or analysis of what the law ACTUALLY says, and as ever on here, when criticised, personal insults start to appear.

Clearly you have no personal experience of the situation you are taking about, so expect to be put in place by someone who does have both experience and the knowledge.

For those who have been mislead into believing that Goods have some sort of automatic 6 year guarantee, they don't.
Here is is a reasonable resume of the real situation:

What is the screen resolution for PC work?
#19
Ah, found it now. 1920 x 1080
Are these viable as screen for PC gaming? Can PC graphics cards drive this kind of resolution at decent FPS?

PC graphics cards can drive resolutions beyond 1920 x 1080, for example my own monitor is 2560 x 1600.

Of course it does depend on the actual card but most modern cards and a decent cpu will chomp through 1920 x 1080.
