HD ready - not full HD

not much more for a 32" if it had a built in dvd this would be hot, so just luke warm from me

That is, indeed, what it prominently states in the headline that we can all read ... so how obviously different do you reckon that would be on a 26" TV screen such that you believe it worth hammering home the point?

People who want a 32" will survey the market offerings at that size and make their own choices. This deal is not aimed at them.

People who want a 26" will know that they're not substantially lower-cost than an equivalent-quality 32" (and somewhat rarer) but their requirements are for a 26" and not a 32" so knowledge of this deal is worthwhile.

Some reckon that integrated components such as a DVD player are rarely worth a premium - far better to use one's own choice of player. The absence of an unwanted DVD-player of unknown quality and capabilities doesn't reduce the heat of this deal for such deal-hunters. Similarly, some prefer their own choice of digital tuners so a built-in freeview tuner of unknown quality is also undesired (but almost unavoidable).

Anyone ever bought one of these, any good?

you have a 3 year warranty, standard with Aldi.

My experience means I would not touch this 'no-name' brand with a bargepole.
I hope it suits some but for me - not a chance.
This sort of deal is available at RS regularly (eg: ]HERE) - sure, the warranty is extra but is £20 for [COLOR="black"]5 years[/COLOR] and refundable if no claims made
Gets a cold from me.

Couldn't agree more, well said. I dont need a 32" TV in my room, 26"'s is perfect!

I've been frustrated that it's hard to find a good 26" LCD TV when the market is swamped with 32" LCD TV's which all seem to be around the £300 mark. I've been hunting after 22-26" TV's for each of my 3 kids bedrooms and it's not the £300 cost that's a factor but some might see my point that a young child having a 32" LCD in their bedroom to watch TV and play XBOX is excessive so a smaller screen is easily more preferred EVEN if it is only a few quid cheaper than a 32".

lol - you fancy ED11 ;-)

Nah, clearly you don't - I'm just messing about because I'm in a good mood today.

However, following your nomenclature, I would respond as follows;

It does not always stand that consumers are seeking a particular screen size, as is often apparent in forum threads discussing computer monitors. It is not uncommon for a potential purchaser to exhibit enthusiasm for purchase of a larger screen size, based on the particular deal available at that time. " I was going to buy a 20", but when this deal came along I decided to get the 22" version" .. for example.

Granted, it is less common to see a smaller screen favoured to benefit from a reasonably insignificant saving, unless there is a conscious aim to procure a particular brand.

In addition, because I have already editted this about 5 times so far in an effort to ensure a gripping read and therefore potentially impress people that I don't even know, I have forgotten the intent of this message and must therefore slink back into my bed because clearly I am still hungover from yesterday's birthday party.

Seriously, it is refreshing to see your articulate, sensible & justified viewpoint rather than the usual 'I voted this telly cold 'cos I really want a washing machine' response often seen here.

Are you sure about the refund?
From their webpage: "...you can also terminate the agreement and receive a pro-rata refund."

nice deal,very true that its hard to find bargains at this screen size compared too 32" sets.

as for it not being full hd this is not an issue at this screen size as its impossible too tell the difference.

"If you use the policy in the 5 years, you’ll have saved yourself tens and perhaps hundreds of pounds. If you don’t… IT WON'T COST YOU A THING!

* Simply return your unused Supercare policy within one month of the expiration date, and we’ll refund the price of your warranty."

Well I had no idea about that. But now I do know it I have to say it is a blooming marvellous idea. Works for them as only a handful of peeps will remember to do it, and if they do come in 5 years later to claim the money they can try and flog you another telly, knowing that you own a 5 year old (sony/LG/etc.) which has never had a problem. So they know you will prob be willing to pay a slight premium to get that brand again with the latest technology updates!

EDIT: I read the wrong bit of the site! looks like the refund on the warranty applies to all warranties excluding TV's!!

Voting cold because this isnt a washing machine.
