The TV is the UMC 39/210G-GB-5B-FTCU-UK Black. It's £239.99 including delivery, so no wild goose chases for store-specific deals!

It's full HD so should please all the people with better than 20/20 vision who like to sit the same distance from their TV as they do their smartphone and it's LED backlit so nice low power consumption and slim profile.

The TV actually looks remarkably stylish for the money - anyway more importantly it's a large full HD LED-backlit TV for not a lot of money.

Manual seems to be here:

I did think that - it is an odd size for an LCD! Normally it would go 37", 40", 42" but who knows? The TV seems to get decent reviews and is pretty cheap, especially for LED-backlit and full HD.

Yeah and looks quite nice too :) Have some heat ;)

No, it's an LED version according. I have 2 of the 39" UMC LCD ones from Tesco on Boxing Day and they are ace for what I paid.

Very stylish looking compared to the Celcus/Polaroid etc. TV's.

Their tape measures are not as optimistic as everyone elses. Excellent price. Heat

I had a UMC 19" tv in my bedroom, the remote was awful, the picture was awful & the screen went black after about 2 years. It went to the bin.

Electrical123 is part of the Co - Op, so a reliable seller.(_;)

Cheapest comparable LED TV on Amazon was a Toshiba 40" at £319.99. This looks okay for the price.

They have this advertised on B&M stores website at £10 less although you cant buy online and might be store select but if your interested and have a B&M store near you it might be worth ringing them

That's the LCD one. This post is for the (better) LED one.

Shame Co-op Electrical don't have some kind of show room where you could see this TV in the flesh. The two photos suggest it has a very thin bezel; almost too good!
#17
To everyone else mentioning it, I have a CCFL-backlit Sony BRAVIA LCD (it was the biggest LCD you could buy at the time but is 4 years old now) with great colours but if I was in the market today for one I would only consider LED-backlit for the thinness, eco-friendliness (in both power and no mercury) and lack of inverters to blow.

I think most people feel the same and only really look toward LED-backlit these days unless money is a massive factor.
#18
Probably the best photo I can find of this - got a feeling it's not as slim as some of the Samsung and LGs out there but still less than older CCFL-backlit models:

Bezel is 139mm so pretty thin,the only thing that lets it down is lack of FHD.

Found this pic online does it have smart installed?looks like he using a streaming app on it.

Thanks for the pic. Got to be honest, just on looks alone, this seems to be a very stylish TV. We have Freesat installed so the lack of Freeview HD isn't such a big deal for us.

What do you mean the lack of FHD? Do you mean full HD? It is full HD!

That 'streaming app' is an Apple TV 2nd or 3rd gen.

Freeview hd

Fair enough, lacking this is a bit annoying I agree, but then it's so cheap, buying the separate box isn't the end of the world.

Sorry, 'FHD' confused me as it's more commonly used for full HD.

13.9cm bezel...that isnt thin....I'm guessing this is the depth with stand. Does anyone know how thin the TV without stand?

I have a 32" UMC & delighted with it.

Could anyone tell me if these support ARC also what audio outputs do they have....

Anyone be able to advise if this TV would work down in Australia? Moving there later this year.

UK and OZ power supplies are the same so it will work, not sure about the over air channels.

Was going to ask what you are talking about but you can see my Imageshack photos (didn't realise I even still had that account)! Sold that car a few years ago, didn't have to replace anything on it ever, passed every MOT clean and still on the road now - best car I ever owned I think; I have the new GS and while better equipped, the electronics seem less reliable - still a good car but no patch on the IS200.

And thanks for reminding me - thought I'd lost those!

If anyone actually buys this TV (and I think quite a few of us are tempted) can they put a quickie review up on this thread please??
#34

I would be surprised if it was that deep (even LCD and plasma from 10 years ago weren't that deep!) - what are they going to do with all that dead space? I know with the stand it's 200mm or something but I assume 139mm includes the depth of the mount which the stand attaches to so when you remove that it becomes thinner perhaps.

Is this 40 inch any better trying to decide between the two? HERE

Ive owned a Haanspree Full HD & now a UMC LED

I loved the Haanspree, only prob was that it was a bit small, but build quality & picture was excellent. Audio a bit tinny, but you have to compromise when paying significantly less than brand names

Just bought one, have some heataroonie

Thanks Mike. Its the freeview channels I am interested in, anyone have any idea if this TV can be programmed for Aus free to air digital TV?

Get an LED-backlit TV for the bedroom - it will be thinner (less space taken up) and generate less heat on account of the backlighting technology. Plasmas can be space-heaters and LCD (CCFL-backlit) are becoming rarer by the day (plus far less efficient than LED), so you're best off getting an LED-backlit one anyway - even if it's not this one.
