Yes but who makes it?

Difficult to tell, but zooming the image looks as if the brand is MEDION.

Thought it would be too as that's the brand they normally sell.

Shame it's not a smart TV and the resolution is a petite full HD. Where's the 4K at?

Nonsense, 90% of tv channels are still SD (not even HD), why would we need 4k...

I was just having a laugh in my original post, i am sure no-one on here is guillible enough to believe you can purchase a 4k tv for under 4k at this moment in time.

4K in the average Joes homes is a good couple of years away and they already have 8K so 4K will be obsolete very quickly, this already reminds me of the 3D comments i'm not buying a passive or active set i'm getting a glasses free set, that worked well didn't it. Toshiba where the only ones to make a glasses free set and a TV that was £5-6 grand is less than half that and no one wants them. It will be like HD ready and Full HD. Theres no content although Sony are releasing there 4K box anyday now and it will need a always on internet connection for DRM and it will only work with Sony sets. There is no content SKY and Virgin only have a handful of HD channels and those are only 720p the only way to make the best of your 1080p set is to play a Bluyray disc so it comes back to what good is 4K? i will tell you none it will be 5 years or more before there's any content available for everyday viewing i don't think either of the next gen consoles are 4K ready either a decent PC with a decent GPU is capable but again no content. Im sure someone will put me right on the consoles front.

So FFS people stop keep banging on about 4K its years off. What has happened to OLED?

ebuyer has a special offer for a 40 in LG led tv for 290.

Think last weeks finlux offer was better. 2 inches bigger & 3d for an extra £10

Killifish link? I couldn't find it...

I dunno why someone wouldn't just spend another £30-40 and get a recognised brand like toshiba. I got a 40" toshiba for £330 and its fantastic

This is the 4th sub £300 deal I've seen in as many weeks for a 40"+ led. Ebuyer had one, got an email through from John lewis and argos as well. I think the prices will keep dropping and we'll probably see one for about £250 in the next few months

Not sure why this is voted so hot. Is it the 3 year guarantee? It's just a generic chinese television probably assembled in Europe somewhere. As previously stated the Finlux is available from ebay for £299 and that is 42" and passive 3D. This set actually seems quite poor value.

I can't see the TV he's mentioned, but there's a 42" LG on there for £299.99. Full HD. All it's vital specs are on this page:

ebuyer.com/367…460

The brand is E-Motion. Pretty sure they had the exact same TV on sale in ALDI this time last year for £259.

The problem with the 3 year warranty is what you have to do to take advantage of it. Pointless taking it back to the shop, they won't have any stock after the offer is finished so at best you'll get a pro rata refund once you've negotiated with the store manager for who knows how long. I'm not sure the cost of returning it to the manufacturers would be worth it either.

Yep.. I agree.. 3 Year warrenty more like get yer money back after 3 years.. with no interest or anything... I mean its all good that they refund you but the Baby monitors I got from them were brilliant and really liked them but they would even bother sending off for a replacement or repair just got my money back and all in pound coins I might all 59 of them...... walking home I felt like that bloke with the 10 Stone Testicle..

my son is on a media production course and said they got to user a 12k camera but they didn't have anything to display it on

Got a Medion laptop from Aldi back in 2009. Screen died after 2 years and 9 months. Rang the Aldi helpline to claim on the 3 year guarantee. Day later, a van arrives to collect the lappy and take it to Germany. Two weeks later, it comes back repaired and as good as new. Can't speak for TV's, but in my experience Aldi do honour their 3 year guarantees.
Have been looking for a 40" LED TV for a while now. Might just take the plunge on this. I think I'm right in saying that if you're not happy with the TV, you can take it back to Aldi within 30 days and get a full refund.

For people that want a known make (Samsung) worth checking your local asda for stock of this alternative (and slightly cheaper) 40" LED (ring them - stock definitely limited to certain stores now):

That said I've voted yours hot, 3 year warranty is worth a lot for peace of mind

yep, saw that but I didnt think he was referring to this LG - this LG is LCD, the Aldi one in this thread is LED.

Both are actually LCD only the backlighting varies. Often CCFL (LG) will give better more uniform backlighting but at the cost of higher power consumption. LED benefits from lower power consumption and thinner cases. The reviews of the LG are very high generally especially the picture. I wouldn't discount CCFL sets especially at the bottom end as some of the very low end chinese panels using LED edge lit backlighting are very poor especially on larger sets where it can be more easily seen. The good thing about the Finlux 3D set is you know you are getting a LG panel as passive 3D is their technology. This benefits the 2D image as well as offering 3D and may also give more uniform backlighting depending on how the television has been configured/assembled.

Cold. Toshiba's are same price for Full HD LED 39" and 40" .

arnt they rebadged veste... oh ****!

I've used their 3 year warranty with a DVD player.

I rang the hotline. They asked me to email a scan of my receipt and include in the email my address, which I did.

The following day I received a replacement DVD player. They didn't even want the old one back so I had a spare remote (!)

It was such a horrible complicated and painful experience....

Guys. It's comes with WARRANTY not GUARANTEE !
Difference?
Guarantee - inc everything
Warranty - exclusions, read small print 1st.
Part of that, good deal. Heat added
