Nice price & good spec!

Also sold under the Yuraku brand - haven't heard of either to be honest.

Looks like the same model is £899 at amazon and £799 at another site I saw - Not sure of the name but seems like a great price for a 40" Screen

found some info on http://www.cleardragon.com/televisions/CDTV32-051 for the 32" model, looks like samsung screens used. if you pop over to avforums you will find all the issues with the current range of 40" samsungs. still tempting at this price :)

The Viewpia 32" has a crisp responsive screen which makes it ideal for fast moving console games and for watching live sporting events. The sound quality makes it ideal for home cinema use. It uses the highest quality components including a Samsung screen.

This television is HDTV ready and comes with full audio and video HDMI decoder built. It has SCART, VGA and DVI interfaces. It is designed in the UK, the components are made in Korea and final assembly takes place in Holland.


does the 40" definitely have a DVI connection??

does the 40" definetely have a DVI connection??


sorry i just copied some marketing stuff from the webpage and pasted. i have updated the post. but what is no doubt true, these are samsung panels or the company that makes tvs for sumsung. have a look at this http://www.indtek.co.kr/eng/ace.php looks very sumsung to me

good post ray (wallet itching!!)

in the market for a 37-40 inch and this looks good, soooo tempting but i havent even moved in to my new house.
#9
i'm confused, cant see if it does or doesnt have a true dvi connection :-(

Going to go for one of these I think. Thanks OP

i dont think it does, just has two hdmi sockets. charlie
banned#12
does that mean you'd need a dvi-hdmi cable to plug in an xbox?
#13
the xbox does not take DVI am i right?

component would be fine! or get an elite and go via HDMi :thumbsup: :)
#14
can someone confirm my understanding that there is no quality loss going from dvi > hdmi via the apropriate cable ? (i.e. they contain the same quality of video signal)

hi, to people saying about the screens are samsung ur probably right, its the same as samsung sell there screens to sony because sonys old generation=crap :P, but just because its a samsung screen dont mean its good because there is a difference from say a 40" sony and a 40" samsung the sony is better as the coding on there end is best(from personal experience) and tbh ive never heard of this brand so i would think twice b4 buying this. I recommend buying a LG they have very good prices. and i havent heard of quality loss from using dvi to hdmi but just do a google search to be sure
but overall if you see that amazon are selling for £900 then great deal, voted hot

does the viewpia do 1080i?
#23
Me2 lol!

over on AVforum, Humax is reportedly not too hot on SD. Obviously, this one might not be amazing either, but the Humax is a bit wide for my liking. It's about 25cm chubbier.

true but perceived quality of a tv is so subjective dont you think??
#26
Would this be great for a PS3? im no whizz on tv's. But would a PS3 run at its full potential on this?
#27
i have the humax paid £570 for i cant fault it. and its a samsung panel.

I can't understand how anyone would buy a TV without seeing it in action or at least seen some professional reviews.

true but at least if you by from a 'decent' online retailer then if there are real quality problems they will usually taken them back... online retail has put alot of power in the consumer's pocket imo

does the lack of 1080(i or p!) not worry people notwithstanding the cracking price)
#31
I have done a little research and this television DOES support 720p and 1080i (it doesn't support 1080p). Check here...

Ordered mine last night.

Also take a look at this 42" version which states it comes with a Philips panel - cant confirm this 40"er does but its highly possible - anyone shed any light on this?

1080p would not be available anywhere near this price point and have you seen 1080i on a cheap large LCD - very ropey. Far better to stick to 720p anyway.
#33
so is this set gonna give 'decent' SD pictre quality do you think??
#34
depends on so many factors, some outside the control of the set, so it would be impossible to garauntee you'll be happy. At this size every defect will be amplified unless you have sufficient space to watch at a decent distance. If you are used to a good quality crt at close quarters, then you'll be dissapointed in most LCD sd pictures. Its a comprimise that you won't appreciate till you see it in your own space, set-up to its optimum ability and most people fail on the latter and blame the set.

most hd lcd support 1080i but i guess u didnt notice the resolution is only 1366 x 768 which basicly means, upscaling to around 1600x 1080, which will be not so good, but ur still right it does support it.

and to the person who keeps asking about SD quality(sorry didnt look at ur name) it depends on many things, and also u dont buy a hd tv for normal tv realy because everyone knows that the quality of SD is way better on non hd then hd ready tvs
but i never seen this 1 so cant tell u if its good.

Ok, this threads been open for a while now so ill summarise. Hope nobody minds. This is the lowest priced 40" 1366X768 lcd TV i have seen in the UK at the moment. The main question seems to be is the quality of the screen good. As others have already stated this is very difficult to answer as it will vary person to person. Ive not seen the screen myself in action so I would say to everyone that its a punt. You lay down your £499 and hope for the best. If you are not happy with the quality when you have it set up in your house then take advantage of the 7 day distance selling law which allows you to return the item.

http://www.dti.gov.uk/consumers/buying-selling/distance-selling/index.html

• A cooling off period of seven working days in which the consumer can withdraw from the contract;

To make 100% sure that this online retailer adheres to this law call them - their number is available on the website.

Hopefully this will turn out to be a decent screen. In 7 days ill find out but Im not expecting the earth. im expecting an entry level HD TV so I dont think ill be too disappointed. If youre after a TV to last you the next 5 to 10 years then invest a couple of hundrfed more and you will get it.
