Cheap with built in freeview. £367.67 shipped with dvd player 3 tier glass stand home theatre system & next day delivery. 125 in stock. Sorry 124 I just bought one
Click 'buy' to see the other items, you can add 1/2 or all 3
Thanks to GPD100335

On a side note, I bought one of these myself last time they were at this price and I'm very impressed with it. Playing my PS3 (also a HotUKDeals special :) ) and Blueray movies are excellent.

Whats good about this TV? - looks like a pile of s***t to me. Even for the £270.00 mark.

and

why bother posting this again - is this anything to do with the affiliate?

What am I missing?

Any thoughts on a bracket for mounting?

Then show a cheaper one at 32" with freeview please aliaspeter. I paid the £367 as I know how much the stand home/cinema and dvd player would cost and you don't pay extra shipping

If you want a good priced second tv then this is a good deal. The picture quality is very good and at the price its worth a punt, Got one and am very pleased. "whats good about this tv"...well if you don't have one don't bother commenting and shouting other people down.

I am asking the simple question because I'm looking to buy, but looking for the right buy. I read in the other posts 'bad' comments about the visitron TV's.

Of course it's a good price, but why buy cheap if its a load of rubbish?
#7
To address the bile filled poster:

1: The price had gone back up to £299 and only dropped today, hence posting.
2: I put (AGAIN!) in the topic because this TV's price goes up and down more often than a *****'s knickers on 2 for £2 Tuesday. It's been on this site half a dozen times in the last couple of months.
3: Even for £270 it's an excellent TV and I certainly have no complaints about mine.
#8
I got one delivered a week or so ago, and cant fault it. I have my 360 and PS3 hooked up to it and the quality is excellent, great colour, no ghosting and its produces a great sound.
#9
I picked one up last week and very pleased with it, my son has got the PS3 hooked onto the tv and works perfect with this and the freeview is also good. The size is good for the price, looking to keep for 3/4 years and change again. Not worth paying £500 for a branded 32' tv even with a 5 year gtd.
Very pleased with this so far.
#10
hope that explains it for the concerned punter - hardly a "load of rubbish" maybe "limited" or of a lower build quality but from all accounts does the job pretty well and for £270.00 - has to be more good than bad at that price
#11
Very tempted, a bit over my budget and probably too big but.... tempted
#12
Its a hot deal I guess for certain purposes of a more commercial nature but why would anyone purchase this for their own home use??! A television more than nearly any other item should be viewed as an investment, as in most cases you'll be holding onto it for many many years.

So why oh why would u spend nearly 300 notes for this, a TV flawed in many aspects when for another 300 u could actually get some a quality TV with a picture to marvel at or at least that will offer a marked improvement. When u consider the 1000's of hours you'll be ogling it over its lifetime surely spending that fair bit extra, surely is the only logical choice.

However much of a bargain a telly may be, u can't really put a price on viewing pleasure over such a long long time.

I'm after a 32" tv at the moment and I'm very tempted by the price of this, but as trd said, it might be worth throwing a bit of extra money at it.
I'm not sure another £300 could be justified though for a 32"er.
You can certainly pick up decent Sonys/Samsungs or Toshibas for another £130 though.
I do worry slightly about the low-ish contrast ratio and cheaper build quality of this model.
It being unbranded, means that it will have a lower resale value when you come to sell it on in 2 or 3 years time, when full HD broadcasts become the norm.

No, that's not what I'm suggesting at all.

I'm saying that I'll probably spend £370 ish on a branded one, that will be easier to sell on in a couple of years.

Although its probably pointless to have full 1080p resolution on a 32" screen, you can bet that most screens will have this resolution for around this price in 2 years.

In a couple of years they'll be to coin the phrase "cheap as chips" so you won't get much for it anyway. Look how much the prices have dropped in the last 12 months!

At about 32" you can appreciate the difference HD can give you at the average viewing distance of 3m, but of course the large models again come into thier own with HD, where as they could look grainy otherwise

Me too, I bought one last time it was at this price (only a couple of weeks ago) and althought I still haven't received the remote control yet I am impressed with it. It is a lot of TV for this price.

I use it as a 2nd TV for the kids, it's connected to a Sky box and the picture is fantastic. Mine has a Samsung LCD panel and a phillips tuner by the way ;-)

I bought this TV a couple of weeks ago and I'm impressed with it.

If it lasts for 2-3 years, I would happily take it to the tip after that. Even if I would want to sell it I would be more than happy with anything I get for it on eBay. It will have paid for its price by this time.

If you buy a Sony/Samsung today, say for £400, how much do you expect to get for it after two-three years? - a £100 max I would say as it will be old technology by then.

The manual says it's a phillips tuner and the ebuyer web site says it's a Samsung panel.

You can of course open the back of the TV and have a look at the panel's code, which you can lookup on the internet and find who the manufacturer is - but I can't be bothered.

So, what you're saying is, this is a bad deal not because you've seen it in the flesh and weren't impressed with its image quality, but because it isn't by a major brand name, and anyone considering it should instead spend double to get the same TFT panel, only with a different case and image processing behind it.

Congratulations, you are the industry's bitch.

IF your after a budget telly this seems a good price.
IF you have the money get a branded one.

Its does get annoying with this being psoted like every week.

Ive got this tv and nothings bad about it, great tv for the price, im not going to spend £500 just for a branded when this 1 is perfectly fine. Dont knock till youve tried it.

As with a bracket got mine from ebuyer also for about £30 i think and fits perfectly. Maybe thats what your missing.

This is a discussion forum, so that people can decide if things are worth the asking price etc.

Baked beans don't really have a resale value, due to the fact that you've eaten them. :p

Used tvs do have a resale value, and as such can go towards the cost of upgrading to a better one.

Like I said, I'm tempted by the price of this, but I'm worried that the people who have bought it and commented on how great it is, are not comparing it to branded equivalents.

If its £270 and it performs as well as a recent release Samsung, Sony or Toshiba set, I'll definately buy one.

Its not really a branded equivalent is it? This would be a sony or similar make being the same price, that would be a branded equivalent.

Its going to be hard to compare it to them, you buy this TV for the price, its not going to be spectacular but from what ive seen from it, its a great TV.

I would guess that could be because they didn't feel the need to spend another £300-£400 pounds on a 'branded' one you know the name of just to write a review !?!?.

One could suggest that if you are unsure about spending £270 on a TV with very good reviews, you should put your mind at rest and spend a hundred or two more and get a brand name you recognise that has average reviews. You may get a slightly better TV (or might not) but you will have the reassurance of the brand name on the front of it giving you the physiological impression it is.

Mmmm, I certainly would consider myself a brand snob, and its really not about giving myself a 'physiological impression'?? Presumeably you mean psychological impression ?

Its about the quality of technology that will influence my decision to buy or not.

It may be a good value price, but I don't really want the hastle of sending it back when it turns out to have ghosting problems, poor remote control, signal problems etc.

I was hoping that someone could give me some reasoned and subjective opinions about this tv, rather than accusing me of being a brand snob.

I currently have a Samsung and am very pleased with it, but would like a bigger set. My concern was that I'd notice a difference in image quality.

RE: Skinrush.

I was not aware that TV's using a digital reception suffered from ghosting or other picture deformities such as warping - especialy TFT flat panels. Ghosting is the effect of the reflected analogue signal being picked up by your ariel and as such Digital and satellite TV's don't 'normally' suffer from it. (unless there is a problem with you local transmiter.) and warping is a problem with the CR- tube

The phrase 'don't judge a book by its cover' is apt here. Often the budget models you seem to be judging are the same units with the same technology and many of the same curcuit boards as the branded ones you hold in esteme. I have in my time had some awfull branded items that have been outclassed by 'budget' models or equivalents.

What people seem to be suggesting is that they themselves or their freinds etc have got this model and have been impressed. What your looking for and might like, does not necessarily fit the bill for others, and you need to make up your own mind which path you wish to go down.

I've had this TV for just over a week now and I also have a Samsung 46".

For £130 more I would have bought a Sony or a Samsung (available for £399 from several places now) mainly because:
1. Brand name.
2. Contrast ratio.
3. Processing engine.

That being said, the processing engine in the Vistron is quite good. It's even got a Dynamic picture mode which is brilliant and you can even control bass/terrible to get sound that suits your mood.

The contrast ratio in my 46" Samsung is 15000:1, compared to 1500:1 for the Vistron.

I have seen the Vistron running side-by-side with the Samsung and of course there is a difference, I paid £1300 for it so there must be a difference :-D. My children can't see that difference though and they're quite happy with the Vistron (on Sky).

If the Vistron screen was bigger (say 42"), its low-specs would have been more apparent.
#36
You really cant complain about an lcd screen this size for the money. Great for the kids or the bedroom (if you have the space)
#37
I paid the extra for a brand - £600 for a Sharp 20 months ago.
Viewing angle is bad and now the backlight does not come on unless I hit it on the case before switching it on!!!:x
Next time, it will either be a budget one like this or John Lewis with a 5 year warranty!
#38
Does anyone know if the Tv is good to use as a monitor for a PC?

i have a 42 inch plasma and its got amazing graphics..just wondering if this would be the same...
#39
Only issue I have personally with TV's as monitors is the backlight can be a bit over-powering on whites up close.

That said the one I recieved had excellent uniformity on the backlight and little to no ghosting
#40
Really looking into getting this TV, but for some reason the Ebuyer whole scenario thing puts me off lol. Can someone who has this TV just confirm that its actually decent and not **** like ive seen in so many reviews lol.

Getting it to use mainly with my Wii and 360
