Does anyone still make calls of their landline?

With more and more 2G basestations converting to 3G, there are plenty of people who can't get good mobile reception indoors.

There's also VOIP for these kinds of phones (though gigaset are the leaders here), useful if you're a light user on PAYG and don't want to waste £10+ per month on a contract for calls which could be made for £1.

How do these compare to other budget action cams? They all seem to be roughly the same....
bought one of these a couple of months ago. very good camera. I also got the coupon for the extra battery and charger. easy to redeem and turned up a couple of weeks after buying.
Option to turn off fish eye?
Cor, order placed this morning, arrived this evening. Gotta love Amazon.

That SJCAM isn't true 4k though (interpolated) so not a true comparison if someone wants actual 4k. SJCAM SJ7 STAR is true 4k and with a quality image sensor. Got mine through Aliexpress for around £175 and that was part of a package including extra battery, battery charger, remote, and selfie stick.Probably sits inbetween the Hero4 and Hero5 in terms of specs and quality.

well like i said above I find even the go pro at 4k bit naff atm, until there 4k 60fps im not bothered, by then hopefully the transfer speed and bigger sds are better, until then for most average consumer they just want good 1080p footage, there is a few hidden gems beweteen 100-140£ that give go pro a run for the money for average people

Have to disagree. I purchased a veho and it went back within days as the video quality at 1080 was awful compared to a GoPro at 1080. I now film at 2.7k with image stabilisation it means I upload videos in 1080 and the quality is superb compared to these cheap cameras. You really do get what you pay for.

Wait Wait Wait Wait, i don't mean 130£ Uk retail product, yes thats garbage, I mean something like these

good deal however, general users should buy the 100£ alternatives there just as good in the 1080p and picture compartment, 4k is pointless for the majority with these

Thanks - will give them a go.
Nothing really special about the batteries apart from the non standard connector. This boat is probably sold under about 50 different brand names and I would be amazed if cheap spares aren't available. alternatively if you are handy with a soldering iron you could change the connector in the boat to the more common "deans" type connector and use any 7.4v "2s" lipo battery back that will physically fit in there which would give you much longer run times. you could probably even use the stock charger because although the main power connector is non standard the smaller "balance" connector which is used for charging IS the same as you would get on a common lipo battery pack. It would take much longer to charge but it should work in theory.

I'll have a look around and come back with what I find.


Edited By: fatdeeman on Jun 17, 2017 13:45
Same here - could really do with some advice on extra batteries.
Are there standard battery packs you can buy that would fit this?

Do they need to be special waterproof batteries?
Can't find batteries for this anywhere.. what a shame

Sorry for hijacking the thread .... but ....
There appear to be those here with some knowledge of current monitors.
Please can someone recommend me a replacement monitor for my ageing Dell U2311H?
i cant afford £700 - £200 would probably be my limit - is there a worthwhile upgrade for that money?

Good monitors. Went from cheapo AOC IPS and DELL TFT to these. Massive improvement.

Got two of these two years ago for like £10 and £20 more, from Scan and Overclockers UK. But that price is okay considering the weak value of the £.

Make sure you check returns policies, especially re. dead pixels. Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 are your friend. I had to return two of these, one with a misaligned USB port, and another with a dead pixel. Seems pretty par the course for DELL monitors these days. Pot luck QA.
Ah, found it here. Not sure what the difference is to ADSN if there is one. Fair enough.
Have you got a link? I see it here at £389.97 or £374.97 with a £1 Which? trial. Either is more expensive.
Good monitor, but cold deal because it's £10 cheaper at Laptops Direct.

Regret buying this. Destroyed two sets of my batteries. Put some AA batteries in rated at 2200Mah and was still charging after they were delivered 3500Mah. Scorching hot too.

Trying to get a RMA was like jumping through hoops. And would have had to wait for replacement. 7Day shop is a big company.

Sad to see another company go this way used to be good.

I will never use again.


Remember 7dayshop is not really 7dayshop of old, they closed on Guernsey where they used to be based and lots staff went, names the same but different company to "the good old days"

If anyone knows the correct sequence to set both the discharge and charge current independently on one of these I'd be all ears. :p


Press the number for the battery you want, next click mode until the mode goes to the mode you want, next press current until it shows the current you want, then let it time out blinking or push another number and repeat

Well I just voted cold because you are insulting the audience you are trying to inform.
Just for the record I do understand the product.
I hope you now get screwed on the deal.

LOL, schadenfreude much? :D
Voted hot as a good price but I think your sell price for 16-50 is a little optimistic. I'm happy to stick with T1 and T10 and yet to be convinced by Touchscreen.
MusicmanJP
Not voting either way, but you should know there is a big difference between the 16-50mm lens and the 18-55mm lens you have mentioned in the description. They are on a completely different level of quality.
Also know that the X-Pro2 is only about £900 from retailers refurbished and that last gen's X-T1, which is a solidly built weatherproof professional camera, is only around £450 now for anyone who doesn't need the extra megapixels.
I'm an XT2 owner myself.

Yes, agreed the XC and XF lenses are not comparable, but I only posted this deal to show you could sell the 16-50mm and end up with an X-T20 for circa £550-570, which compared to the X--T1 refurb is in my opinion a much better deal.

While the X-T1 has it's appeal, and things like weather proofing, I don't think the improvements in IQ from the sensor in the X-T20 can be out weighed by the £100 saving for a refurbished camera, and I am sure you wouldn't want to swap your X-T2 for an X-T1. :)

I added heat but if I were you I would buy the body and try and pick up an XF lens second hand rather than the new XC lens. Personally I'm giving it a year before I buy, my X100 will do me till then.

The purpose of getting it as a kit, is to sell the XC lens, as per my opening post, I already have 35mm f/1.4 and the 56mm f/1.2 - looking to add the 23mm f/2.0 or maybe the XF 10-24mm have not decided yet. :)

I had a bad experience trying to buy this watch.

First Argos refunded my payment without explanation. I tried to order again and noticed that it was out of stock in my local store, so I ordered it to the next nearest store, and this time it seemed to work.

However, today, when I got home after collecting the watch, I found it to be a different model! I expected
W-210-1DVES (https://www.casio-europe.com/euro/products/watches/collection/w-210-1dves/) but I actually received a bright blue F-108WH (http://www.casio.com/products/watches/classic/f108whc-7a). It is going back tomorrow...

Battery only lasted 3/4 years on mine and it was IMPOSSIBLE to get the back off to cheaply replace the battery.
Getting the back off doesn't look like that much of a head-scratcher to be honest.http://media.4rgos.it/i/Argos/4610283_R_Z002A?%24Web%24&w=1240&h=1116

its not the back thats the problem.. its what underneath... as mine ran out and i decided to replace the battery. a cr2032 which i had previously bought via ebay.. for various items, like the electric weighing machine...
I removed the 4 screws <<easy.. removed the back which was done by sliding it due to the straps.. then and heres where its tricky.. 1st the plastic sticky pad /layer easy to remove carefully.. then 2. tried to remove the battery, but couldnt... found a white plastic cover to remove.. which is use to secure the pcb in place, using a tiny 2mm screwdriver to pry it out.. i couldnt as it clipped into 2 different places, eventually i managed to get that piece of plastic out.. and finally i got to replace the battery.. put it all back together and nothing.. the spring thats between the black sticky pad <has a hole in it so it can touch the back housing
<the piece of plastic with the 4 screws with an interior piece of thin metal.
I took it apart again.. re-examined, removed the battery and tested it, full power, put it together for the 2nd time and still didnt work... ended up throwing it in the bin.. It should have been simpler.. remove 4 screws, remove black sticky backing, undo screw to remove battery holder, remove battery.. put in new battery and replace everything.. but no.. they made it harder due to the white plastic.. seems to need a special tool to remove it.
I've had mine over 12 years and it's still going
Great watch for the price have had it for 6 years and still working fine
Quids
I hate this watch (not really). Had one bought me as a present about 12 years ago, and wasn't that thrilled with how it looked. I'm that mean I couldn't justify buying a new watch until the battery went.It's in my sock drawer now and still going strong. It'll still be running after the apocalypse when only cockroaches are running round.


Maybe that time the cockroaches will be running the place and need a watch to tell the time.

Do you realise most consumer electronics are made in China? You can also pay by PayPal and Gearbest have a money back guarantee should you not be satisfied.
I'd like to see you try get your money back for your £300 Switch when the battery blows from this :D

yes you are right
these battery when explode also do lots of damage and sometime they are fatel too.

What device did you use to post this? Chances are it, or at least parts of it, were made in China or Hong Kong or thereabouts. After Brexit, everything will have to come from China so get used to it! Or maybe we can start manufacturing them in the UK, in which case they'll be £19.99. Or we could always get UK children to make them in sweatshops...

anyone found one of these that doesn't interfere with the radio?
How do you mean? I get a hum on mine when I'm charging my phone while using it with the line-in on my radio, but I think that's a grounding issue and I haven't looked at it properly yet. Does yours interfere with the reception?

You're talking absolute nonsense. There's protection built into modern devices these days that prevent these sorts of things, e.g. devices only pull the power that they require and no more.
I've been using a cheap car charger for 6 months in my car and I've never had an issue.
To anyone who isn't knowledgeable with this stuff and wants the above item, don't listen to unfounded claims.
Can it cause damage? Yes. Will it? Probably not
Ha ha "built in protection" yeah I'm sure little Jimmy Wong tests every one of these, although he makes 500 a day and is only 6 years old. Jog along.
He means there is built in protection in the devices you are charging, i.e. your phone, tablet, Nintendo Switch, etc., because those devices are obviously more sophisticated and built to higher standards. These chargers are simple devices that have two jobs - enable you to plug USB cables into your cigarette lighter socket (because obviously they wouldn't fit otherwise) and step the 12v from your car's battery down to the 5v required by USB-charged devices. They're so simple you could make one yourself with some basic components (resistors, capacitors, etc.), but low quality ones may do a poor job of regulating the voltage, and it's possible that a voltage spike could damage the device but a good device will be able to manage that. Major problems occur when there is too much current, which would be a problem with your device rather than the charger, because, as Bradders said, the charger only provides the amount of current provided because it is down to the device being charged to 'pull' the electricity from the charger.

It's very simple. You buy something directly from China, then generally speaking you are at the mercy of their safety standards.
So; what safety standards do these devices conform to? They don't have to, and therein lies the problem.
It's not say that they can't work perfectly, they can and many do I imagine. The problem is that you're relying on some nondescript, heavily profit motivated Chinese company to regulate itself.
One thing Britain prides itself on are safety standards which have come about by learning hard lessons in the past. Well, the more people import stuff directly from China, the more we go back on them.
They do technically have to conform to safety standards if they are to be imported to/sold in the UK - they should be CE marked to indicate compliance with EU regulations, regardless of country of manufacture. However, obviously this is difficult to regulate and manufacturers can 'self-apply' the CE marking, with some Chinese manufacturers even cheekily labeling their products with 'CE' and claiming it stands for 'Chinese Export'. These chargers are labelled both 'CE' and 'FCC' (to indicate compliance with US regulations), which of course could mean nothing, they're just letters written on plastic, but again these are not complicated devices, they contain such simple components that it would be almost impossible not to meet EU safety standards.

great deal - I have been looking for one of these , just to test fuses and batterys etc. I asked for one for xmas and was given a really nice one (about £20's worth) but then I had to spend an extra £1 for a battery and on the first time testing a car battery I had it on the wrong setting and that was that - now it only comes on for AC and transistor checking!
anyway you need to get a battery with this - the cpc one used to come with one

you probably just need a new fuse. also batteries in the post is a thing of the past it seems, don't expect anything to come with one.

I don't understand why people are going crazy about this charger....These are worst of all so called "smart" chargers I have seen. Second worst is Xtar VC4. They just looks good with all these displays, voltage control , etc...but they wont charge batteries to full, wont charge dead batteries and sometimes fail to charge even good batteries.
The one I have bought in Lidl 7 years ago is best of cheap ones and cost me less than half price mentioned here.
Got one of these. Not charging dead batteries is a real frustration. Will have to get a USB charger as suggested above, thanks.

I've found the USB battery chargers you get from the likes of Poundland/world are excellent for jump starting a totally flat cell - the ones from Ikea also work to a point but they're not as dumb as the pound shop examples. Handy considering they don't take up much room and these SC1000's have a USB port.
I have one of these, I've had no issues with mine but the only criticism I have is the display is hard to read, it should really have a backlight.
Hello can it charge C or D cell Battery's with the AA Adaptor's ?
Any Help would be greatly appreciated before I purchase.
You could possibly charge a D or C cell by buying a C/D battery holder and attaching the positive and negative wires to terminals on a dummy AA battery and then place the dummy cell in the charger - it'll cost you a couple of quid but it should possibly work.
Why not take the AAs out of the adaptors?
I assumed the poster was wanting to charge their D/C cells in a charger designed for AA/AAA cells.
Yes that's correct using these from Ebay (link below )I no that other similar chargers can do this anyone got this charger like more information if someone can help.http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/201812851076?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

It might work, I don't see a reason why it shouldn't work but I've never used those adapters with this charger so I cant really say for sure.
the vc4 does Li-Ion cells too.

No one in their right mind should buy Full HD TV at this price £399. 4k is the standard now. Negative
Don't be silly, 4K is only going to make minimal difference at 55" for most viewing distances and a cheap TV like this is going to be dead long before things start assuming 4K is standard.
There's no reason to believe the marketing that you need 4K on a TV like this.
A fool and his money are soon parted.

You'd need to sit less than 7feet away from a 55" 4k TV to notice the difference in resolution from 1080p. Just saying.

Doesn't make this a particularly great deal though.

Down to £112 so took the plunge and bought it
Can you confirm what packaging and accessories came with this? Thanks.

Like wales said, you get the GoPro in the 40m waterproof housing, flat mount, manual and charging cable. You don't get the touch screen back door or the skeleton back door. I think these can be picked up quite cheap on ebay though
I bought this last week when it went down to £112. It arrived today, it is a brand new hero+ in original packaging, it just comes without any additional mounts and fixings. So it is basically just the camera unit in a waterproof case. Hope that helps

this isn't a good price for such a low resolution projector. you can get much better on ebay. i got a 480p one for under £15 about 3 months ago but the last i looked the same one was about £25, still cheaper than this
320 x 180 , shurely shome mishtake?!?!? my god that would make everything look like a Lego movie or actually a duplo movie.
300inches diagonally across at 320x180 = 261inches x 148.5inches

The pixels would be practically 1 inch square!

I wish I was making it up but the specs actually suggest that as an 'option'.

Even better, you can get it in black with a 2xUSB3 extensions;https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01H3UL3NM
If only it could support up to 8-9kg, my old 26" LCD is very bulky. Maybe it's a good excuse to also upgrade monitor though, yes? :o
Edit: But even something like a 27" Dell S2716DG weights 15.2lb / 6.9kg, so above the limit :(
As I recommended to someone above, the Humanscale M2 arm can support monitors up to 9KG. They're a bit more expensive (~£50 from eBay), but it's cheaper than a new monitor, I suppose.
this would help free up so much desk space

Anything for 34" ultrawidescreen monitor?
How heavy is your monitor (without the factory fitted stand)? Also, what size VESA mount does it have?

For something as critical as tyre pressures, I would want a resepected brand of gauge.

Ive tested mine against the local garage when I received it last week out of interest and the readings were indentical.

Some people are just happier paying more.
For something as critical as tyre pressures, I would want a resepected brand of gauge.
Ordered & voted hot. My current pressure gauge is so dim and the display so small it's so difficult to use. I like the look of this and will be easy to use in the dark. I use this type to check the pressure to see if I need to get my Ring pump out, and I use the pressure gauge on that. I've checked that with my local tyre fitters gauge and it's spot on. If this gives a different reading I'll just that it in mind.
I do agree that tyre pressures will increase with temperature, it's just really a guide.
ordered one which came today but it's not working!

Why not just check for free at any petrol station?
If you think those things give accurate tyre pressures then lol :D:poO
They will get you in the very approximate right ball park, but for many decent cars, one or two psi can really effect the handling and overall driving feel of the car. Buying a good tyre pressure gauge to get the pressures spot on is one of the best bang for buck upgrades you can make.
Not convinced in the least that a couple of psi can be felt whilst driving.

It depends on what you need. If you really need more than 1080p then it's a good price compared to a GoPro. For me, a Git2 or even SJ4000 is good enough and a lot cheaper.... and I'd be a lot less bothered if it was broken

I had this charger, worked well but died after a couple of years. For the money couldn't complain though.
Can I charge one cell or do I need to fill up the bank?
Also is this good for enloops? Still havent replaced my charger after moving to the UK.
Will charge single cells, was fine with my eneloops, Duracell and 7dayshop. I also used it for charging single use alkaline which my current vapex does not and I do miss.
charge alkaline batteries???
Up to 10 times spec states, I found after 4-5 re-charges they don't hold significant charge. But yes you can charge Alkalines unless they have changed the charger since I had it.
Edit, this is the one I had https://www.amazon.co.uk/Lloytron-Alkaline-Intelligent-Battery-Charger/dp/B004KZKWO0 which does Alkalines it seems it was a different model.
You can charge non chargeable batteries?! Since when?

Maybe contact the manufacturer saying Argos no longer sell them and see if they will replace it, you would no doubt get a new model.

Just to check before I buy is this the best deal for the price for a 1440p UltraWide, and is it really worth the £200 premium over 29" 1080p UltraWides? I'm not a gamer so lack of FreeSync is fine, just desktop use. Replacing a 4k.

The AOC 34' ultrawide gets rave reviews and is a similar price. Only 34' ultrawides are worthwhile if you are buying for non-gaming use. It is worth the premium, no doubt.

Predator X34A 34" 3440x1440 IPS G-SYNC WideScreen Super-Wide ZeroFrame Curved LED Monitor - £1200 and still 60hz (capable of being overclocked to 100mhz)

They say you can't really tell the difference after 1khz refresh rate, but I bet at 100mhz must run really smooth...
Is that factory setting or do you need to overclock, not sure I want to void a warranty? :)

Had a look at this myself last week, it is a good price for what you get. The only panels higher than 60 hz with this spec will set you back £750. Unless you are into competitive FPS gaming then running this screen at 60 fps shouldn't be an issue in most games.
Personally I am holding off for the Samsung CF791 monitor. Costs an extra £300 but increases screen refresh rate to 100Hz, uses a VA panel with quantum dot technology and has the most aggressive curve of any monitor on the market.https://www.overclockers.co.uk/samsung-c791-34-3440x1440-va-freesync-100hz-gaming-zero-dot-widescreen-led-monitor-mo-232-sa.html
Even that is "48 – 100Hz unconfirmed" -overclockers.co.uk unfortunately.

lcd tv this is tvLCD TVs - High Resolution and Energy Efficient

These days, TVs are wafer-thin expanses of high-resolution technology. They can stretch across the entire wall of your living room, creating home cinema-style visuals, without projecting more than a few inches from the wall. If you love TV, it’s really a golden age.

LCD TVs are at the forefront of modern television technology, which is why millions of people buy them every month. Offering high resolution, energy efficient operation, reliability and good compatibility with other digital devices, the best LCD TVs are a superb way to watch movies, TV or play video games.

LCD TVs: Pure Entertainment

Televisions have been part of our lives for almost 100 years now. The first models appeared in the 1920s, and were primitive compared to the racks of LCD and LED TVs you’ll find at high street retailers these days.

Early TVs (and the kind most of us used until quite recently) relied on cathode ray tubes to create images, which in turn required box-shaped units to project electrons onto phosphorescent screens.

LCD-based Flat screens started to appear in the 1990s, but it wasn’t until 2006 that they surpassed the sales of cathode ray tube-based TV sets. At the time, they were competing with plasma screen TVs, as LCD technologists sought to make their sets larger, more efficient and lighter.

LCD eventually (more or less) won the battle with plasma screens, only to be met with another competitor, OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) screens. Nowadays, companies like Sony, Samsung, LG and Panasonic make both varieties and, as we’ll see below, each kind has subtle strengths and weaknesses relative to the other.

How Do LCD TVs Work?

As their name suggests, LCD TVs make use of Liquid Crystal Diodes to create high resolution TV images.

In an LCD TV, two layers of specially polarised glass are placed on top of each other, with liquid crystals in between. When certain levels of light are passed through this layer of crystals, they allow it through or block it, depending on its wavelength – creating a huge range of colours.

This means that there has to be a source of light beneath the layer of crystals. In an LCD screen, the light is supplied by fluorescent bulbs.

LED screens work slightly differently. They still employ a layer of liquid crystals between sheets of polarised glass. The major difference lies in the light source. In OLED screens, Organic Light Emitting Diodes are used, and the arrangement of these LEDs can differ (with full array, edge lighting and a variety of patterns available).

The key thing to remember is that both forms of TV are able to have incredibly slender screens, thanks to the absence of a cathode ray tube. Both offer relatively pure image quality, with impressive contrast and resolution.

LCD TVs: Technical Specs to Look Out For

When you start hunting around for the ideal LCD TV, you might feel like you are bombarded with data. There’s a wide range of different specifications and choosing the right kind of LCD TV can make a big difference to how much pleasure you derive from your set, so it does matter. Here are some key things to consider:

  • Screen size – Probably the most important selling point for most LCD TV buyers, screen sizes vary from tiny 7-inch models (handy for smaller rooms like bathrooms, or for having in your car) to massive 110-inch behemoths, which could well be too large for your home to handle.
  • Resolution – A measure of how many pixels the LCD TV is capable of displaying. The ideal resolution for your screen will depend on how large the screen is. For example, experts tend to recommend that a 20-inch screen has a resolution of 1600 x 1200 (for computer use) or 1080p for TVs. However, high-end models can churn out 4K pixels in Ultra HD (or even 8K in the near future). This might sound great, but for everyday viewers, 1080p will still seem impressive.
  • Clear motion rate – Also known as the refresh rate, the clear motion rate refers to how often the TV can refresh the image. It’s usually measured in Hertz (as it’s a measure of frequency) and ranges from 60Hz to 120Hz in most common models, but can rise to 240Hz. Why is it important? Well, for some people it won’t be. However, if you are sensitive to small amounts of motion blur when watching sports or movies, a higher clear motion rate will make a big difference.
  • Audio – You’ll find a range of audio specs, but go for models with Theatre or Surround Sound if you intend to ratchet up the volume and increase the intensity of your movie watching sessions. If you are a serious audiophile, check that the TV has the HDMI connections needed to hook up with speaker systems. Not all TVs are capable of synching with Bose or Logitech home speakers, so make sure your model is.
  • Connectivity – Along with HDMI connections, good LCD TVs will have Ethernet, USB, digital and audio out sockets and possibly Bluetooth as well. This can be a deal breaker if you need to connect a PlayStation or Xbox, or have a Blu-ray player or PC to link to your TV.
  • Weight – Obviously, if you intend to move your LCD TV around regularly, having a lightweight model can be a real plus. Otherwise, weight is less critical. If weight is a major factor, you’ll love the next generation range of 60-inch LCD TVs that have been slimmed down to as little as 10kg, but it’s rarely critical for everyday TV watchers.
  • Energy Efficiency – Both LED and LCD TVs are much more efficient than old-style TVs, but there’s quite a lot of variation within the flat screen market. Look for an A+ energy rating in the product details as you hunt for a TV. That way, you’ll drive down your electricity bills and help the environment without denting the image quality of your TV at all.

What Types of LCD TVs Can You Buy?samsung logo

All LCD TVs tend to look alike, but there are some variations in the kinds you can buy, so try to be alert to the differences as you search through the HotUKDeals listings. For example, you’ll come across:

  • Standard LCD TVs – TVs with a resolution of around 1080p, decent size, at around 30 inches, light weight (but not wafer thin design) and the usual collection of HDMI and USB ports.
  • 4K Ultra HD LCD TVs – TVs that offer much higher on-screen resolution (four times as much as standard TVs, actually). You’ll encounter sharper images and text, which can be handy for those with minor visual problems, and a generally more enjoyable movie watching experience.
  • Smart TVs – Most LCD TVs on the market are smart these days, so be wary about claims that make this seem like a big deal. However, some TVs are “smarter” than others. The differences lie in the kind of interfaces included. Go for TVs with Rokia or Sony TVs that feature Google-designed Android interfaces.
  • Home cinema LCD TVs – Not all of the LCD TVs on the market are adapted to create an authentic home cinema experience. Crucially, not all have the muscle required to create immersive sound, so go for TVs with surround sound and extras like soundbars if that’s a consideration.

Is it Worth Having an LCD TV Repaired, or Should I Update?

As with all tech devices, LCD TVs are susceptible to becoming damaged every now and then. The question is, when this happens to you, should you spend the money to have your TV repaired, or is it time to update your device and go for something cutting edge?

The choice you make will come down to a few basic things. Firstly, can the TV actually be repaired economically? If your screen has been badly cracked, that’s an expensive repair job, and it probably won’t be worthwhile to bring in a technician, have the screen taken away, the parts ordered and the work done.

Then again, some other forms of damage can be remedied fairly cheaply. For example, if you have an issue with your remote, it’s rarely a fatal problem. The same applies to buttons on the TV itself or damaged sockets. These kind of things can be fixed cheaply enough to avoid forking out for a new TV.

You’ll also need to think about the age of your TV. If you’ve had it for five years, technology will have moved on dramatically and it might be worth paying extra for a new set, even if the old one can be repaired. However, if the set is a year old and it can be fixed, upgrading makes little sense.

Finally, be sure to compare the price of a repair job with the price of a new TV. Give your local technicians a call. Ask them about their prices, and then compare them with the offers at HotUKDeals. If repairing is cheaper, it may well be worth it. If not, it’s more than likely time for an upgrade.

LCD TVs vs. LED TVs: What’s the Difference?

This is the million-dollar question in the world of TV purchasing. Should you go for an LCD TV or a more advanced LED set? It’s not a simple question to answer but there are some important things to bear in mind. First off, it’s worth outlining the major differences between the two technologies:sony logo

  • LCD TVs – Use a layer of liquid crystals sandwiched between two sheets of polarised glass. These diodes turn off or on when they are struck by different wavelengths of light, creating an image. This light is generated by a network of fluorescent lamps that lie behind the crystals.
  • LED TVs – Also use a layer of crystals between two sheets of glass, but use LEDs (light emitting diodes) to generate the light source. These diodes can be arranged behind the crystals, but are also commonly placed along the edge (edge lighting).

So that’s the basic technology. What about the differences?

  • Resolution and picture quality – Generally, both screens will create high resolution, distinct images, and most consumers will struggle to detect any major differences. However, there’s no doubt that LED TVs generate better contrast ratios and have more sensitive dimming capabilities, and tend to have deeper blacks as well.
  • Energy efficiency – LCD TVs tend to be slightly less energy efficient than LED screens due to their more efficient lighting systems. That is, they require less light to create images, which in turn requires less current.
  • Burn-in – Here’s where LCD TVs are actually superior. LED TVs can suffer from burn-in, which is when ghostly legacies of images remain on the screen. This isn’t usually associated with TV or movies, but is a factor for gamers. If you intend to use your TV for PlayStation or Xbox play, an LCD screen could be the way to go.
  • Size – The only real difference here is that LED TVs are marginally slimmer than their LCD cousins, but it’s a close-run thing.
  • Price – Another area where LCD screens beat LED, hands-down. LCD screens are much cheaper as a rule, and becoming cheaper all the time thanks to competition with the even more advanced OLED screens, so if you are looking for a bargain, they can’t be beaten.

As you can see, there are some differences – particularly at the high end of the LED market where 4K is becoming standard. If you are the kind of person who absolutely has to have the finest resolution and deepest contrast, an LED TV will be essential. But that’s not the case for most of us. Given that LCD screens are almost always cheaper (and the benefits for gamers), they remain a great option for most people to choose.

Useful Accessories for your LCD TV

When you come to purchase an LCD TV, you don’t need to buy the TV unit alone. In fact, there are several handy accessories that can enhance your viewing experience. Popular options include:

  • TV stands – TV stands don’t just ensure that your TV is placed at a convenient angle, in a convenient location. They can also allow you to swivel the screen at will, and the best stands include cable management features to keep any loose cables under control. Some include compartments for controllers, and even larger boxes for DVD players or gaming consoles. At the high end, designs from labels like Muji or Maisons du Monde also look fantastic, which can be a factor for design-conscious TV buyers.
  • Cleaning kits – Keeping your TV screen clean can extend its lifetime and avoid any smudges or flaws in the picture. You can purchase specialist kits with anti-static cloths that are designed for use with LCD screens. These screens can be surprisingly fragile, and liquid sprays are almost always advised against, so sourcing the right kind of cloth is vital.
  • Wall brackets – Similar to stands, but more permanent, wall brackets are essential if you want to mount your wide-screen TV in a home cinema setting. The best models are made from sturdy but lightweight aluminium, and you can find flat or cantilevered varieties, with some brackets offering swivel features as well.

Finding the Best LCD TV Deals

Having a great flat-screen TV is a vital part of daily life these days. No-one seems to want to settle for out of date TVs, and the race to have the largest, flattest, highest resolution TV seems never ending.

Thankfully, it’s easy to find big savings on high definition LCD TVs (and LED TVs). Just head to the HotUKDeals LCD TV listings, where you’ll find an endless stream of cheap LCD TVs from the UK’s biggest electronics retailers.

Merchants on the platform include big names like John Lewis, Tesco, Argos, Currys, Richer Sounds, as well as online sellers like Amazon, eBay, 7DayShop, Very and box.co.uk. If it’s being reduced and is sold in the UK, it’s a fair bet that our community will make the details available, so make the listings pages your first port of call when seeking the best LCD TV deal.

Timing a TV purchase is also advisable. Many people like to wait until the big sales seasons of the year, which start with Black Friday in late November and stretch into the January Sales. There may also be big reductions as major events approach, like the football World Cup.

In the case of LCD TVs, buyers can expect big reductions in any case. With LED TVs and Ultra HD now coming on sale, older but still advanced LCD TVs are plummeting in price and it’s a great time to find a deal.
