Hey all this is my first deal so please be kind.

Walking through ASDA I saw this LCD 32" tv at £175 thought maybe label misprint but scanned through at £175.

I understand this isn't top specs for a tv and only 32" but for £175 even for the kids bedroom that's a good price with decent specs.

Reviewed highly on all websites I looked on, this was found in ASDA Yeovil will post photo of receipt in a second (sat in car park writing this).

HD-Ready
High-definition television or HDTV is a new standard of TV with better-quality picture and sound than what you're used to. HDTV brings you closer to the action offering more colours and a higher resolution picture similar to what you'd see at a cinema. This can make HDTV images clearer, sharper, more detailed and very life-like.

All LG TVs come with built-in Digital Freeview making sure you're ready for the digital switch-over. With LG TVs you'll have access to over 40 Freeview TV and radio channels, 8 day on-screen guide and access to digital interactive services.

Energy Saving Recommended
This TV has been certified by the Energy Saving Trust to save power consumption up to 20% therefore can save you money off your electricity bills.


What are Invisible Speakers?
Wide Sweet Spot. The front bezel works as a speaker, replacing the normal speaker grill. With the Invisible Speaker system, the speakers are embedded in strategic spots underneath and around the front bezel. They enhance the audio by increasing the ‘sweet spot’ to give a wider and richer sound field. This new speaker system provides a clean and fashionable design compared with traditional side or bottom speaker designs.
Box Contains
Television Owner’s Manual
Remote Control + Batteries (AAA)
Power Cord
looks good....

For price I thought couldn't go wrong but still popped outside to get some signal to check reviews and all were positive, got misuses to wait with it while I popped to currys to see if they had it and would price match + 10% (was being greedy) but they didn't have the tv and their cheapest lg was 300 ish
bargain
Splendid bargain hunting! I would probably have bought this even though I have no need for it.
Hey op was this a nationwide deal ?
Brill find I saw a Samsung PS43E450A1W 43" Plasma TV for £299. Couldnt find any reviews for it online, otherwise was thinking about buying it for our living room
Original Poster
I don't know if nationwide assumed it was as was just mixed in with a toshiba tv, can't see it online. Actually went in for the plasma but after seeing this I did the un man like thing and gave up my inches however now allowed to buy a nas and media player now by the misses (under the thumb :P).
Can't go wrong with the price but I bought one from Tesco yesterday
Voted hot

Ooo forgot to say guy in currys said that lg are bringing out new line of tvs that's why they had deals (rubbish deals) but still might explain why ASDA so cheap so guessing wherever stock is then it will be this cheap.
Asda Gateshead have none in stock.

How did you check?
720p? It may be cheap, but I would gladly spend a bit more money for the full HD resolution. As a second set, for an xBox or for PowerPoint presentations it could be very nice.

Yeah I agree this wouldn't be a main tv however as second set ideal, however I'm watching battle LA and looks great ideal for the Xbox 360 package posted earlier from costco could get tv Xbox and kinect for under £350

At 32" you eye is physically incapable of differentiating 1080p from 720p unless you're pressed against it. Any difference you perceive between different sets is due to contrast ratios, black levels, etc.
is there someone you can go to check stock in individual asdas? Google's letting me down :P

Just a guess, but I think that the majority of people watch the majority of television from sources that produce less than 1080p.
Fe*k! Just realised it's Easter Sunday tomorrow, Asda'll probably be closed because of our stupid trading laws here.

Same here. But come on, can't we do without shopping just once or twice a year? AFAIK the shops are closed Xmas Day, New Year's Day and Easter Sunday.

You'll just have to sweat for another day Lol!
It's an ok price I guess, but not full HD.






















Ooh, sorry, wait - I was in la-la land for a moment. This is an incredible deal - I knew there would be one person who said "not 1080p".

At this price I think you'd be stark staring not to get one - hell, even if you don't need one, get one anyway!

Absolutely red poker hot!

Lol! Great first deal - I'm sure many people here knows that feeling when you see a good deal that you just have to get it up on the site asafp! I'm surprised you waited until you got to the car!

I have the lk330u model which I bought for around £220 back in january. I've been impressed with that, is this model significantly different / better as seems a very good price.

Lol had started to drive off with her in car to currys then decided she would be more useful back at ASDA so kicked her out at the traffic lights and got her to run back to ASDA and protect it.

When I was looking at it a few people asked me if it was the right label and then walked off (assuming wrong that it was) and as my favourite quote goes Your text here

Yes, mainly SD source, still doesn't stop people getting HD Ready TV's does it?

Regardless, with the next lot of consoles coming out in the next couple of years, Virgin, Sky and Freeview HD being 1080i (note, not 720p) and HD streaming services and Blu-ray getting ever more popular, to try and 'future proof', I personally would buy Full HD.

I been to asda that's y

Sorry mr expert but your wrong, this set wouldnt be very good as a monitor for example at typical monitor sitting distances. People with source material that's 1080p will want a 1080p set even if THEY couldn't see the difference the scaling could introduce artifacts which would be very visible. Ther is plenty or reasons people need 1080p sets without using it with their heads pressed against it. Fed up of seeing your comment and similar ones on tv threads.
on a 32inch tv 720p is absolutely fine. 1080p on any set under 42 inches with average viewing distance is going to be imperceptible.

If you are talking about picture quality (which is what is important) the only thing I can see that may be missing is 24 FPS support.... you might get frame judder on bluray if it doesnt have this

whomever made the point about 1080i..... 720p is better than 1080i in terms of quality.

the only thing I can think of that would require 1080p over 720p would be if you were using this as a PC monitor.... thats it.

bluesky-web.com/num…htm

What this means to the HDTV viewer is that the vertical resolution of any HDTV pictures that have a vertical motion component is better in 720P than in 1080i. Based on the above findings, progressively-scanned images equivalent to the observed dynamic vertical resolution of 1080i may be achieved using only 648 lines. If we want to play a numbers game, 720P has better dynamic vertical resolution than 1080i by 72 lines. But wait, there's more! The resolution impairments of interlace, plus the fact that progressive scanning affords far better motion rendition than interlaced scanning, make it apparent that a football game, for example, would be much more enjoyable in 720P than in 1080i. Add to this its freedom from other well-known interlace artifacts such as visibility of scanning lines, line crawl, and flickering aliases, and it quickly becomes clear that 720P is equal to, if not better than, 1080i in the representation of real-world, moving television images.

oh wow its been ages since there`s been one to these stupid debates 720 vs 1080p , here`s a fact for you`s , you would have to be 3ft or closer on a 42 inch set to notice 1080p , and this is a 32 inch set , so you people out there decide..............

Why? On a 32 inch you would be pushed to tell! And for £175 this is a bargain.

And now i see everyone else has said the same in a much more informed way..still, right is right
