let me tell you a tale, I have had in the past four years a 55" LCD Sony failed after 24 months (£1.500 right off) then replaced with a £800 50" LG Plasma again just over 2 years old and has just come back from being repaired for the second time (New PSU board this time) and a 3 year old £300 32" LCD Panasonic which sometimes turns on and sometimes not?

I also have a 4 year old £300 37" Elonex/Hannspree LCD and have never had a single problem with in all this time (although I have now probably just given it the kiss off death)

This is a 46" FULL HD LED TV for a mere £299.99 including delivery what's not to like oO

I would of ordered it an hour a go, but the reason I have not is ideally I would like a LG so it works "easier" VIA simplelink for the surround system.

I agree about the premium brands and life of the units, been there too :-)

im still on the fence -

Any TV experts like to share their expertise ? :-)

Thanks mate. Didn't even see that! Must take the delivery price off when you go right through the checkout or something.
Anymore info on the tv?

been to.super market.

got.photos and box spec. photos to.folloe
No USB and only 2 HDMI But for this price NOT BAD! I get 10% as well.
seen one of the smaller sets, picture was ok but the speakers are dreaful.
it definately has usb, and the site says the following:

"The 46 inch TV has integrated freeview capability, and the HDMI and USB port makes this an ideal TV for gaming enthusiasts. "

heat from me. amazing price for this size and spec even if it only lasts a couple of years
We had this TV, i'd say the picture is comparable to my Technika 22 inch TV. It DOES have USB.
not HD Ready , whatever that means ?

Just nipped up to the local ASDA for a few bits and seen the 40 inch version. (which I expect is the same spec.)

Picture quality was OK (Cheryl Cole) music DVD being played via a LG DVD player - Sound quality was not that bad to say it was on full blast in a store. (I have a surround kit so thats not a problem)

The down side I think for me for my needs is 2x HDMI ports and the lack of COMPONENT sokets for the wii.

Pictures below of the box detailing the spec etc..

ps - the 40 inch version is £245 in store.

Thoughts ??

not HD Ready , whatever that means ?


I think because it's Full HD (i.e. 1080p). HD Ready normally (?) means 720p.
Edited by: "WillieGophar" 10th Dec 2012
I have the 40" and in the 3 weeks ive had it im very happy, The speakers ARE useless as mentioned here but the picture is superb. It does have 2 x USB. I bought a 20 quid logitech 2.1 system to boost the sound and works well. Very happy.

It says NO in that field because its 1080p, the sets which are 720p say yes in that field and NO in the 1080p field
@RickT: Good work Rick, but that is an LCD not LED.
I bought a polaroid media player a while back, 5 inch screen, played video and mp3. Have to say it was absolute junk and a complete waste of money. I do not believe Polaroid manufacture any of these types of electrical equipment, TV's, DVD's etc so they are likely to be some cheap obscure make badged as polaroid. Personally I would avoid. I cannot see past John Lewis or Richer sounds for TV purchases. Good luck.
Thanks

Research suggests its a Vestel from Turkey. but the boxes and stickers are branded to say otherwise and no details of country its manufactured in.

Would really like to get some feedback from someone who owns one..

ALSO - the remote control felt VERY cheap, but that can be addressed with the likes of a ONE remote of SKY

Good spot. Heat added for price and effort still though
COMPONENT sockets it has but 2 hdmi mean i need 4

Yep it is Vestel from Turkey, although it is cheap but mist vestel products are pretty rubbish ( they do have very expensive ones and the quality of those not bad but again I rather pay known brand for that sort of money).

Vestel is a pretty big brand but they are not developers of any tech in such just copy cats !

I've seen two Polaroid TV's a big one and a small one and the picture quality was crap. Colours on small one all wrong at anything but dead on. Even at dead on the picture was pretty crap!
They also look cheap and had loads of backlight bleed.

Gotta commend Polaroid on the price though! Loads cheaper than other brands.
21kg is a bit heavy for an LED.

Where they the LED or LCD ones do you know ?

The weight does seem a bit heavy.

History lesson time:-)

Dr. Edwin H. Land (1909 - 1991), founder of Polaroid,

In the field of polarized light, he was responsible for the invention, development and efficient commercial production of the first sheet polarizers, for a sequence of subsequent polarizers, and for the theory and practice of many applications of polarized light. Such devices are widely used today in liquid crystal displays (LCD), in sunglasses and in scientific and medical research. The trade name ‘Polaroid’ has become the accepted generic name for these sheets.

Shame it's LED :-) but interesting.

You know that nearly every 'LED' TV is actually an LCD TV with a LED Backlight.....?
