Good price for a 26", 19" only £30/40 cheaper
Great first post IMHO

Same TV £269.99 in ]ARGOS ive never heard of this company though and after the musthave100 deal a bit wary, has anyone used these before? In particular has anyone used them then had a problem that their customer service has had to be contacted about? As I believe how a company handles a problem is a better indication of how good they are

not heard of the company either but great deal, do well to get a 22" for the price..

Banned

wow. Much nicer than the old 26" I had from them! this one looks nice, and YES a pc input!

at £200, seriously. Don't turn the nose up at this one people.

Gone for one for my daughters bedroom.
Pricing is a bit misleading though.At first it appears that you are getting free delivery,which i also assumed was next day......wrong.As you go through checkout,you are given 2 options for delivery,next day @ £14.95 or 3-4 days @ £10 and then they put a surcharge on @ about £1.95 ...and then they want a surcharge for paying by credit card.I avoided the credit card charge by using google checkout.Still a good price.I paid £214.95 in total for delivery on friday.
Edit:2% cashback from quidco also.

This is a legit company, they are based in huddersfield and have drove past the shop many times.

Anyone worried about the company should not be. They are 100% safe.

What's the quality like? People are voting hot but the price could be for a rubbish HDTV.

a mate of mine has one of this with a 360 plugged in, he says it's not as good as his ps3 plugged into his tosh 1080p screen but it still does make an excellent 720p tv

ps. he's had it for about a year and a half i think

No vote, as I don't have personal experience, buy Which? wasn't much impressed with the performance of the 32" version:

====
Acoustic Solutions LCD32805HD

This appalling 32-inch LCD is one of the worst TVs we’ve ever tested, scoring a meager 1 star in the standard viewing tests and a terrible overall score of only 26.

Bear in mind though that "it depends". I've just borrowed a small Samsung TV, and the SD picture through scart was appalling, but when I connected my XBOX 360 via Component, it was fantastic.

I've ordered one for my wife for xmas to play her xbox 360 on, I am confident that it will be fine for that purpose and the kids may watch a DVD.

Voted hot!

Um, not sure if you are joking but, it is not going to be quite as good as a Toshiba 1080p running a PS3!! :roll::thumbsup:

In my opinion this is not a good company [SIZE="4"]BEWARE![/SIZE]

I purchased a TV from them a few months ago that was faulty and they *illegally* do not issue refunds. I am currently starting legal proceedings with them.

I know of more people that have had troubles with them with the same issues. I was even told over the phone that its not their policy to issue refunds and that they never have. Trading standards are currently looking in to it.

Okay deal, but you may get a headache if its not 100% working, or you get problems down the line.

haha don't worry, i was joking

i should've made that clearer

ok,

I purchased one of these, ordered it wed evening and paid for nextday delivery, so expected it to arrive on Fri at some point. TV never turned up (lovely day waiting) finally arrived on monday morning and straight away out of the box i could tell it was a refurbished product, bad packaging marks on TV unit, dirty screen oh and the screen is faulty, a line the whole way down the screen. Even if the screen was in working order i wouldnt be able to offer a good review, picture qualitly is poor!

As for refund etc.. i havent heard back yet but i will be chasing up daily and expect a full refund including postage costs due late postage of faulty unit!

so to summarise, NEVER USE THIS COMPANY AND DONT BUY THIS TV UNIT FROM ANYWHERE ELSE!

Same as you,i ordered wed evening,but my unit arrived early friday morning.
Again,same as you,it was obvious that this was a refurb'.Box was old and well travelled.Packaging was not polystyrene,but brown paper packed up tight to hold unit in box.The tv and remote were the only things in the box,no tv fly lead,no instruction booklet,nothing.Was already to get on the phone and demand my money back.However,i decided to set up the unit and was surprised that it even turned on.I then connected it up to my sky hd box and dvd player and was instantly pleased with the results.I have decided,that,at that price,to keep it and just hope that it doesn't break down.It was advertised with a 12 month warranty,so if anything does go wrong,Direct tv's will have to honour that.I phoned up to get a booklet and cable sent out.Whether they arrive or not is another matter.
