I've been looked for a budget 32 inch LCD for a while. This is by far the cheapest I've seen and looks like a good set with a decent make of Panel.

Free Delivery with super saver or just £9.99 with next working day!

I was going to post this earlier, but noticed it was posted a months or so ago.

This keeps popping up, it's a hit or miss really. Oh the thing about Samsung panel is a bit mischievous of them. Firstly Samsung (and Sony and most big name manufacturers) don't make 32" Panels, they source them from somewhere else (Orion is one of them). This uses the same panel a 32" samsung BRANDED tv uses.

They're not lying, ish..........

Before anyone buys this set, read throught the (many) previous postings of this tv... I would SERIOUSLY consider spending some more and buying a decent telly...

I noticed Comet had the 32" goodmans IN STORE today for only 299.99... and you can see and play with that one first...

Best place to but this LCD TV is directly into the bin!

samsung use there own panels and make all ther own parts one of the only companies that does, they do make the screens for others and sony have used samsung and lg for there latest models to make there screens as sony dont make there own
#7
I agree, the reason why they state a samsung panel is that it is them and LG that produce a hell of a lot for other people. It is something to brag about.

I agree seeing a goodmans instore is an advantage, but you can't compare it to this (possibly superior panel) and the staff won't have a clue who makes the goodmans panel! They'll probably say 'err....I think we do, do you want a 5 year warranty with that for "199?'. Lol, I use to work in there for a couple of years! :w00t:

Why? Is this not perfect for a bedroom, kids room, or in my case, my parents with ever growing poorer eyesight!?

I have a 6 Series Samsung so I like quality for myself, but cheap tellys have there uses in other places.

best bet if you want it is buy it, ebuyer are a great company. If you dont like it then return it (distance selling rights).
#10
Watching TV on one of these now, not had a problem with it it works ok and I'd say far better picture than a mates Samsung 32"which he paid double for a year ago.....by the way he was gutted when I told him what I'd paid for it.

This TV is a bargain, if you want a cheap 32" with freeview go for it, it's ok for the living room, bedroom or toilet, I've used mine with a Nintendo Wii, dvd player and not had a problem with picture quality. I've not tried messing with settings and such and it's still ok in my view at the end of the day its a cheap tv, it does what it say on the box it shows moving pictures

Is it good for using as a PC monitor?

- Thanks.
#13
Isn't this the tv with the remote that doesn't work?
#14
I believe some were missing freeview controls maybe fine now. Maybe best to ask ebuyer first or just return if not.

i notice no mention of freeview in the description but in the reviews it seems to have.

as for the monitor question, the resolution is a bit low for my liking but it does has a VGA socket, so yes it can be used as a monitor.

at 1366 x 768 pixels..? no.
#16
Any idea which is better, this or the 32" Sense?

The Sense has contrast of 1500:1 compared to 800:1 for the Vistron.
Also the Sense has 2xHDMI, 2xScart compared to 1xHDMI and 1xScart.
Finally the Sense has in built freeview but the Vistron doesn't.

I know looking at the specs the Sense seems better but I wanted to know if anyone had any personal experience or any other thoughts. Also the Sense seems like it's been £300 for a few months now looking at the comments on ebuyer.
#17
You can buy with freeview for £294.99

Good T.V got one myself. I bought the the freeview one for £269.99 3 months ago, ebuyer prices fluctuate all the time.

I think sense and vistron are the same just different casings on them

Samsung and Sony have a joint company called S-LCD (I think) which produces panels for both groups. Samsung and Sony also produce their own independent panels where they have used technology they want to keep unique or which does not fit with the S-LCD manufacturing process..
banned#21
I bought one of these just this week! It's very good for the price. As has been said before it is a samsung panel and it is exactly the same as my housemates Samsung TV panel. The only difference your getting here is the casing and the menu systems.

Please also be aware this TV has no Freeview built-in, it wasn't a problem for me however beacuse I bought a Digihome PVR80 Freeview Recorder with it, which is a bargain in itself.

If your on a budget and want a 32" HD then i recommend this.
#22
I aslso bought one a little while ago.

Got the Wii and also sony dav surround hoked upto it.

Get it while its hot!!!

So Goodmans is a good make is it !! Always some Jonah who wants you to spend more on something which is unlikely to be any better. The point of this site it to point out bargains not put a downer on every post.
#24
Didn't say the goodmans was better, the point I was making is that at least you can see the goodmans and decide for yourself.

And I'm not simply putting a downer on deals, fact is, I've had FOUR of these sets... So I know for FACT that spending some more (JVC for 350 anyone? WIth freeview? telling me that won't be any better??) WILL buy you a better set.

My experience: Picture was ok, sounds was fairly poor, and won't go low enough for use in a bedroom, minimum setting was too loud. Built quality very poor, packaging appaling, usually in opened and resealed boxes, remote was pap, and may sets were delivered damaged...

The panels in them are the same. Ebuyer rarely state the correct contrast ratio for Vistron screens. The Vistron will also be 1500:1.

As for the extra HDMI ports, it depends on whether you need them or not.

False economy - spend another £50 and get yourself the 32" toshiba from tribal...far more TV for your money.

Samsung do manufacture LCD panels although not always for their own branded TVs. Cheaper TVs that use Samsung, LG panels will almost certainly be fitted with lower grade panels. Also of paramount importance is the backlighting too so assuming that these low end TVs are fitted with premium graded Samsung panels they will be handicapped by poorer backlighting which is resultant of darks scenes being shown as grey (rather than deep blacks), uneven lighting and difficulty in adjustment to reduce banding.

Sony do manufacture LCD panels. They will not always use their own proprietary panels in their TVs just like a Samsung TV may not be fitted with a Samsung panel. Manufacturers supply each other with panels for reasons of economics and supply and demand.

Had this one for about 5 months now. I've seen some bad reviews, but I've never been anything other than delighted with it.

The remote's fine, but a bit directional. You just need to be a bit more deliberate pointing it.

I've got an old PC hooked up via HDMI, and it's fantastic for watching vid that I've downloaded or converted to my PC. That's definitely a route worth looking at if you can find a cheap Blu-Ray or HD-DVD drive.

One gripe I've had is that the VGA input is poorly positioned, and when used on the stand I've been unable to hook it up. Hence me hooking it up via HDMI, which could become an issue if I get round to getting a standalone box that requires that socket.

For the money though, there's nothing better that I've seen. If yours turns up and is dodgy, get a replacement. Mine's cracking.

Be aware that product baiting can go on like they do with a lot of screens.Release the initial batch with high quality screens then the next and rest have non samsung panels.
banned#31
Anyone know how to get external speakers to work, I can't seem to find an internal mute.
#32
shame that it is not 1080, could use it as pc monitor then, but still that is a good price for a tv
