Not a bad price for something so big. It's a little bezel-tastic, but looks okay. Big screen for not alot of cash, and Argos are a reasonable company should anything go wrong. With 4.3/5.0 review scores it looks even better. Hot.

You try finding one.

Four left in rg21 7aw at 5.15am bargain hunters :-)

Southend Victoria got one left

excellent TV for the money - has a record to USB facility - 3 x HDMI + good sound quality

Alba are officially the worst electronics brand in the world. If you buy their products, then be prepared to buy them often.

There's another 40" Alba LCD TV on Argos here (very similar but different original price and slightly different specs). Seems to be a bit of scattered stock left - I can't see any major differences between the two.

oos at 10 nearest stores

good price though, voted hot

I also had a bad first hand experience of Alba. I owned a 26" Alba TV, and just out of warranty it began displaying "Service Not Running" messages every time the channel was changed. A local engineer did a firmware update, which didn't solve the problem, in the end a new main A/V pcb was fitted, which cured it for five months before the problem returned all over again.

All repairs of ALBA products are now handled through Argos via the Home Retail group, who, in my personal experience, are less than helpful if you need repairs undertaken outside of the warranty period.

I don't have a problem with budget brands in general, however I will be sticking with the ones who have a better back up service and spares network, so if it does go wrong outside of warranty whilst its still relatively new then at least I can get it fixed locally.

not the worst of all time though step forward amstrad!

I'd avoid Alba, it's a bit like Bush, both cheap, poor quality brands

Complete waste of 199 quid.

This is not a waste of £199 if you do not have a lot of money.
Why be ripped off by paying for a top brand name.

I got one from Portlethen in Aberdeenshire for a friend that is on a tight budget. Now one left.
It is not bad for what they can afford and at least now they will not have to shell out for glasses to see a small screen. Saving money in the long run.

Alba's not all bad have been exposed to one of their tellies - looked and worked like a telly is supposed to. On the cheapness front, the only Alba item I have bought that made me think "maybe that's why it was so cheap" was a portable CD player - the batteries only lasted a couple of hours a time. Possibly the only Alba item I've bought but my mum's telly was fine.
