Blaupunkt BLAUPUNKT 40/148 - UPDATE *THIS DEAL IS STILL AVAILABLE 17/11/14

A 40 inch, Full HD screen, excellent connectivity and stylish good looks - the Blaupunkt 40/148 gives you the lot for less! FULL 1080P HD READY AND LED SCREEN FOR STUNNING PICTURE QUALITY At the heart of this impressive Blaupunkt TV is a Full HD 1080p, LED backlit screen. Full HD 1080p resolution gets the very best from Blu-ray and other sources and gives lifelike detail and stunning realism. Yet this Blaupunkt isn't just about high resolution, it's about smooth motion, too. With AMR100 processing on board, this TV is perfect for both fast moving sport and action movies. With an LED backlit panel, the 40/148 also gives an impressive contrast ratio. With a strong brightness figure, too, the Blaupunkt 40" LED TV boasts a crisp and bright picture with deep blacks and excellent grey scale. Typical of good quality LED sets, there's also truer realism and a greater sense of depth. Thanks to a suite of noise reduction processors the picture is also clean and free from distracting digital distortion. ALL THE CONNECTIONS YOU NEED, INCLUDING USB In terms of connections, the Blaupunkt has all the flexibility of more expensive models. Three HDMI sockets are on hand for a games console, Blu-ray player and HDTV set-top box. In addition to this, the TV boasts SCART, component and VGA PC connections for your other sources. The USB socket is extremely useful for plugging in digital media devices and playing back video, music and pictures on your TV. Finally, both a coaxial digital output for connecting to a soundbar and headphone socket are also standard. TIMELESS GOOD LOOKS Despite its top-value price, the 40/148 certainly doesn't look like a budget model. The smart black finish, with narrow bezel is right up there with current trends and the matching stand is similarly stylish. In short, the 40/148 has the classic style you'd expect from this legendary brand. A full-size TV for the price of a portable - 40 inch value doesn't get any better than this!

Yes, I agree. Blaupunkt has been a reliable brand from many years and this tv is stylish with good specifications. The free 5 year guarantee is an added bonus and makes this an excellent offer.

.... that just sounds a bit creepy!

The only thing I struggled with on this tv (we have one), is the sound quality. Perhaps i'm just going mutton geoff in my old age!

Thanks for your comments. Blaupunkt TVs get very good reviews on the TESCO Direct website & this 40" TV has a really decent spec for a sub £200 HD LED. Throw in a FREE 5 Year Guarantee, FREE Delivery, £15 Off First Order, Quidco / TopCashback, Clubcard Points and it starts to looks like an outstanding offer.

What about input lag for PS4 and Xbox One? Anyone tested?

According to a comment made on Richer Sounds, it has a USB port which plays everything thrown at it apparently. I tried the £15 code, didn't work as its for groceries.

Input lag demonstration - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJeipgUTd8s

Input lag below 250ms. Hmm.

Don't know whether to wait till nearer xmas for another bargain ......

Do not buy this if you want console gaming out of it.

From the comments, it makes it sound like video/audio is out of sync? Or should I assume it's just the fact the audio is via the PC and the video is via the TV?

Sounds daft to even ask, but can I assume there will not be 250ms of lag between audio and video when watching Sky / Chromecast?


We have 2 of these and both tvs are used for gaming and we have had NO problems.

This is last years model and was always £229 at Richersounds. They have now replaced it with the new model at same price. So real RRP is £229.

This isn't the same TV... It's actually the Blaupunkt B39A401TC-UHD & the one on offer at Tesco Direct for £199 is the Blaupunkt 40/148.

Anyone know what the sound quality is like?

Sounds good till you see the 5 year warranty is with square trade better off getting from richer sounds for a few quid more and a good 5 year warranty.

That's horrendous.

Will be totally fine for non gamers though

I use a 5 year old 50hz Samsung for gaming and haven't noticed any lag issues. I think there is a degree of snobbery on most tv threads.

hot,thanks op.

Great TV. Picture quality is excellent and it is one of the few budget TVs to actually looks good. Sound quality isn't great but is no worse than most budget TVs.

Richer Sounds aren't that reliable either. Trust Pilot gives Square Trade 9.5 / 10 based on 2094 reviews... Richer Sounds gets a modest 7.7 / 10 based on 126 reviews.

Is it good for a ps4 cause im intrested buying one but for gaming

Am I right in reading this is 119cm? Or am I reading it wrong?

Terrible, we had one on the last deal, vibrated like mad when turned up and sounded very tinny

Square Trades warranty, that is a deal killer for me as I have had issues with those clowns over a diagnosis fault that was NOT agreed upon but when another engineer came from my local dealer he found it straight away. They refused to sanction a repair or exchange on the basis that there was no fault found.

Agree about a 5 yr warranty being direct with a reputable shop, that to me means RS or JL only nowadays as your guaranteed a hassle free repair or exchange.

Then again for £185 you could throw it away.

Am I right in reading this is 119cm? Or am I reading it wrong?



Yes, it does seem to claim that, which as you indicate can't be right.

Using the height given of 61.5cm that would then give a diagonal (screen size) of 133.95cm (using Pythagoras) which is almost 53 inches.

if the 61.5cm height is correct, the width must be about 82 cm, based o the 40 inch diagonal of the screen.
