Insane price. Paid £450 for a same spec minus the 3D and glasses, LG 32" Feb 2009. How things change!

You just beat me to posting this. ;-) Happened to be browsing Sainsbury's TV section and saw this. Seems decent for anyone after a 32" 3D TV, although I'm yet to sit down and read any in depth reviews!

Another Turkish Turkey?

Another Turkish Turkey?



China according to Sainsburys but that doesn't really say much, no idea where the panel is from. Blaupunkt are one the the most long-standing and respected car audio manufactures out there, but with so many names being used by Vestel / budget retailers it's kinda hard to know what you're getting without prior research.

I'm not sure of the model number of this but could it be B32A56TCFHD?

If so I can only find german reviews at the moment.

Further info needed please.

Nice find, I've added the price to your deals title

You mean 3 years after you bought some technology, similar spec technology ended up being a lot cheaper?! I'm absolutely definitely googling the price for a touch screen mobile phone running IOS, I bought a Iphone 2G in 2007, boy am I in for a surprise, thanks for the heads up :P

good price for 3d TV

Here's the pdf manual for this TV >

skymediauk.co.uk/Dow…pdf

Very useful as screenshots of the menu system and EPG are shown throughout the manual. Also has technical specs.

It has one USB port with media player functions, might play divx/xvid then.

I thought that these were made by UMC in Eastern Europe.

Another "brand name rights" purchased for rebadging generic electronic goods.

Heat added though as this is an entry level budget 3d TV deal that will be hard to beat.

These are assembled in slovakia, weried seeing Blaupunkt is german you would think they would put it together and over engineer it.

looks cheap, Cello M&S style, lol

Good find! I have to add that this fish master comment was everything I hate about this site. What a b*ll end. You come across as a nerdy chump.

edwardlibertini

Bought 2 and used the code KL6H-KCTG-GLF6 (£40 OFF) = £180 EACH ...;)



You don't need to buy 2 tv's to watch in 3D (_;)

Might go and see if there is one on display somewhere.

Yep, the last page of the PDF manual posted above supports that. Same company that made the "eMotion" branded TVs Sainsbury's used to sell.

I refer you to post #11 where I offered some help in this thread, as I generally do in many threads I post on. The other post I made was a light hearted comment which the poster (in my opinion) deserved. This is how I am and I'm not changing, take it or leave it You come across as someone who has no sense of humour :P

Tried all non-expired codes - none work on 1 TV @ £199.99. Hope that saves anyone else spending time trying them out.

If you ever wanted a TV from a has-been manufacturer and sold by a supermarket, this is your lucky day. Doubly so if you wanted a "3D" one on a screen not conceivably close to being big enough to pull off the effect convincingly.

What does everyone mean by recording onto a memory stick?

Record what? Lets say its connected to an ordinary Sky box (or HD box with no HDD), you could record onto a storage device connected via USB?

Next question. HOW? Ta

That means that the Sony PS3 3D monitor is useless and every other 3D gaming monitor is useless then.

Usually recording from the in built tuner. Some TVs might allow recording to USB from external inputs. Check the manual I posted earlier for reference.

What's so has-been about Blaupunkt? I recently fitted one of their new headunits to my car and was blown away, the blue dot still leads the way in that department IMO. I think any comments on Blaupunkt are rather irrelevant anyway as it's already been established this is a no-brand TV with a known logo on the front.

£200 for a 32" 1080p TV with a couple of nice extras (3D, USB recording) is a great price for anyone on a budget. The cheapest new 32" 1080p is £171 @ Tesco. I've based my hot vote (and purchase) on that alone.

I also noted these in local sainsbury's this evening.

Actually its Slovenia (look on side of box). These TV's are made by UMC who also make the vast majority of Technika TV's for Tescos.

As this is a passive "Cinema" 3D set the Panel will undobtedly be an S-IPS variant made by LG

OK no Freeview HD, no LED backlight, and no 2D to 3D sinmulation (as per LG sets) but this still must be the first under £200 32" 3D set in UK.

AFAIK Blaupunkt was originally a Bosch brand but was acquired by Grundig in 70's . Grudig was 50% Philips then but as Grundig was big lossmaker Philips got out im around 1990. A few years later Grundig went into liquidation and the brand having passed through many hands is now ownjed by BEKO.. How the Blaupunkt brand ended up with UMC? I will investigate!

read the manual and looks like that the PC is supported only by the VGA connection. No digital through the HDMI and picture will be not that good with the PC. Still very tempted but that makes the difference for me, VGA is not as clear as digital. Saying so, games in 2D/3D through HDMI for the PC will be fine same as per PS3 or XBOX

Can anybody comment on the 3D on this? And the picture quality?

Um, I'm not sure why you're thinking this... If your PC has HDMI out then you can HDMI straight to the TV. Unless I'm missing something?!

You need the value to be over £350 to use Code KL6H-KCTG-GLF6 this gives you £40 off....

yes you are missing something, usually there is a proper hdmi socket to control the pc in a proper manner replacing the DVI connection. If you try your PC on your TV in the right hdmi socket provided that you set it up on the pc setting( usually by changing the name as PC or DVI) you will spot the difference. It looks clearer and you can see the icons and writing clearer. Sorry i am not that techical but it must be a matter of frequency. I also got a very expensive monitor with an extra HDMI socket but that is designed to attach a bluray player or gaming console and picture is really bad if I connect the PC to that, I can only connect it on DVI or vga. Instruction manual specifies that pc can only be connected to vga and it mention nothing about the HDMI-pc connection. Got no idea if by chance could work and I do not understand why they might have not done it that way. Obviously they been cutting corners,lol

No they weren't the first..... M&S were selling 32" and even 42" 3D TV's with Freeview for only £199 each last week! (unfortunately all sold and now out of stock though)

Viewing angle 60 degrees?? Seems a bit low fr an LCD TV?????

Ok, I think I understand what you're saying - I just haven't experienced a TV like that. You're saying that some TVs have a dedicated HDMI port for PC connections which can be manually adjusted to the rest of the inputs on the TV? I'm too used to the 19" ones we have here with just 1 HDMI input we're constantly switching around.

I've ordered for pickup at my local store - will collect Friday or Saturday and see how things pan out. There's little to research about this unit on the 'net so hopefully we can get some reasonable user reviews up by the weekend.
