for £129 it will be just fine

I thought Asda owned the UK rights to the brand and get someone like vestel to make them?

To be perfectly honest, if the picture is good enough and you get a few years out of it then its a bargain.
Great for the money!!!

People will fight over these. Crack each other over the head. Pre Xmas rumble
Btw I got a cheapy 1080p Tesco TV for £159 great picture and sound OK for the bedroom..... No reason why this isn't a good TV. May need sound bar but I bet the picture is pretty good
I bought a Polaroid 50" TV from Asda for £286 last year and it's been on for over 8 hours a day (16 hours a day the last 9 weeks) since I got it and it still works perfectly well. No dead pixels, great viewing angles, brilliant quality really AMD the sound is quite decent.

only reason I didn't buy one is I need a 32 inch or smaller for a playroom. 40 is overkill and already have 42 in lounge, 32 in bedroom.
Not normally a fan of these cheap telly deals but £129 for a 40" full hd tv . Great deal. Plus no fighting to get one!
Nasty!
Freeview HD or just Freeview SD?

Definitely got my attention now! Missus wants to have a bigger TV in the bedroom. Was going to go for a 42", but at £129 that's a steal worthy of going a tiny bit smaller for!
Anyone got a product number so I can check for stock?

also has 1 SCART but not really sure what a scart input is though. when I looked at the back it was a big square ish looking input . does anyone know what it's for ? Thought it was a maybe a service port ?
It wasn't that price at my local store, it was £229 and not in the sale
got one of these, decent telly for the price, though the viewing angles are a little iffy, and dark/night scenes in movies are really hard to see
Seemingly not all ASDAs since found one in my local but was showing as £229 and scanned as that
I love how this deals picture TV has a security tag strapped to it, like anyone is going to be able to casually nick it!

Take it from me, she will appreciate the extra 2" in the bedroom.

Haha ... let's be honest, that's like double what she's used to ;). Sadly though as per my post a few above, not on offer in my ASDA, and indeed on an "anti-offer" at £229. Hence she'll have to put up with her tired old "tiny" TV.

strange. the standard price is 189 then reduced to 129. no idea why the other asda stores are charging more. Regarding the security tag this is asda !
Possible depends on whether a store has overstock etc. Reckon these were the ones they punted out last Xmas. My store only had the one remaining. Didn't even scan on the top price bar code, but did on the box bar code.

Had 2 of these for 3 years - both still working ok. From my understanding Asda will replace the item or give your money back within 1 year if its faulty

At about £230 I would spend £100 bit more on another brand. At £129 its a good deal
Product code anyone? Please
Anyone know if this is national or a tesco style pot luck??

​exactly what I am thinking.
none in Huddersfield unless I've got the wrong Polaroid. any model info would be great
Original Poster
sorry I didn't get one. I would say this is store specific. Asda Burgh heath also have many other deals on tvs but this one is the best by far. will go back later to get model number and buy one !
Purchased the 55inch model for 295.00 for my son's room
Very good picture , I think I will get this one as well

If you're being serious...

You must be pretty young if you've never seen a SCART cable/port before!

To answer your question, SCART is a legacy analogue connection for hooking up VCRs, older DVD players and other older tech to your TV. To put it simply, it was the 90s equivalent of HDMI today. Obviously nowadays everything uses the HDMI ports, so it's highly likely you'll never use it. Hence a lot of TVs don't have SCART ports any more.

Nearly....'great viewing angles'....don't think so....

I've had the 50" one for 2 years that was on here for £280 at the time, we've used it a lot, it's a good TV for the price. Downsides are only 2x HDMI, and also there's some ghosting on the picture (the mrs doesn't notice it but I do)
