oh i so want this. must save money

Let the Mayor go, and I'll throw in one of these...?

Is the Blaupunkt name now just stamped on cheap & nasty foreign TV's, in the same way that Wharfdale was with Argos TV's ??
I doubt its the quality German made stuff Blaupunkt used to be.

I've got the 3D version of this and it's ok

You can say that, but I bought a 42" Wharfdale from Argos when the PS3 initially came out (2007). It came with a 3-year warranty and was about £400 cheaper than an equivalent branded one. It's getting on a bit now, and there's a little bit of screen burn/mottling now that it's around 7 years old, but it's been perfect and has great sound compared with many more modern sets.

At this price, I don't think you could go too far wrong, so I'm voting hot.

There again, an LG 32" LCD TV I purchased a couple of years ago only lasted 18 months!

Ordered one anyway to see how good they are And because we need to replace our older 32 inch tv. Let's see how it goes...

Not saying this TV is crap, it may be pretty decent for all I know.....
I just get sick of companies using this tactic of buying, or get the license to use well known names, names that were associated with quality, then put those names on all sorts of sub standard goods. People buy these goods believing its the same company.
Need I mention Sports Direct.

Bought one myself to replace our old 32" 720p.

Anyone know the model number or this?

I have been looking for the model number too so that I can dig a little deeper but not found a thing yet. We ordered one earlier and it should be here tomorrow (all being well) so I will post up the model that we receive

Is this Tv big enough to show the whole of Venessa feltz all in one frame

FFS i ordered the 39' one from Tesco yesterday for the same price. Going to miss out now on those extra 3 inches (incoming dirty jokes).

sadly no.

18 months warranty too if you register via the card in the box

I bought the 24 inch Blaupunkt that was posted on HERE several weeks ago. It was £80 with a code and has a five year guarantee, so mad not to have bought it. The Virgin guy came out to set it up with a box a few weeks ago and he was really surprised at the excellent sharp colourful picture (I was too, to be fair) and he asked where I'd got it as he was going to get a couple for his kids rooms to replace theirs.

So... cheap, definitely, rubbish, we'll have to wait and see but the Sale of Goods Act would cover it for at least three years even without an extended warranty. Lets not simply **** off cheap electronics for the sake of it.

I wasn't swearing above just to be clear, I was saying s.l.a.g. off oO

Looks to be good as a gaming TV. Full HD resolution and an response time of 5ms. Tempted to take a punt myself.

Whereas 7 years ago I bought a Sony Bravia, which is still working perfectly. Full HD, all pixel working perfectly, no screen burn, no mottling. You get what you pay for in life.

Blaupunkt was great until 2009 when the name was sold and now attached to any old tut, like Wharfdale, like Grundig. Like spray painting a dog turd gold. It might look quality and shiny, but underneath, it's still a turd.

Can this tv be polished?

You know the old saying...

You can't polish a turd...

Joking aside think it's a bargain for the kids room

Well, bully for you, guy. The point I was making was that 7 reliable years for a budget brand is pretty good and budget does not necessarily mean unreliable. However, if telling everyone you own a Sony and anything else must be a turd rocks your boat then knock yourself out.

I would go for it, seems pretty good for the price, I'm considering this too for my PS3... you can always send it back if you have any problems.

We got our son the 32" 3D version last May and it's still working great. If you are in the position to pay £1000 for a telly go for it but if like 90% of us you are looking for a bargain by all means go for one of these, great for the price.

Forget kids' room, this is fine as a main TV for people on a budget!

Blaupunkt were a car audio specialist back when they had the premium reputation.

I have a 24 inch Full HD 1080p Blaupunk LED TV from Sainsburys. £99, with USB, 2x HDMI and VGA connectivity. It has a fine display and I'm using it as a monitor. Very very pleased with it.

Back says its assembled in Europe, possibly Slovakia.

So, 42 inch Full HD for £199? Can only possibly be hot.

i would pay extra £28 for 3 years warranty

Thanks I knew I made the right choice. A budget brand may appear a bargain, but long term quality always wins out, as you would expect it to. Of course if you're happy watching a TV with screen burn and mottling and consider that as a sign of reliability then good luck to you.

As they say, buy cheap.....buy twice !

Let me follow up with where spending an extra £50 will get you a TV that will be infinitely better.....

hotukdeals.com/dea…219

or if you fancy a 1080p LED 46", for another £100 you can have this !

hotukdeals.com/dea…659

I've never seen an LED TV with mottling or screen burn, budget or not budget.

But these tellys have their place, even if you don't consider it a primary TV it will do a job as a secondary, holiday home, caravan, bedroom, den, shed, playroom, gaming monitor etc.

TV tech is moving quick and tellies become very dated very quickly. I expect I would buy one more frequently.

(my main telly is a Viera 3D 48, but I DO recognise the value in low cost tellies which very often source the same internal parts and display panels as big brands).

If you're only talking a couple of pounds, great. However your examples would mean paying an additional 25% and 50% more. That's quite a lot, percentage wise, is it not?

The deeper you get , the dirtier it gets .

Is there such a thing as a bad TV now that they are LCD/LED and not CRT?

Percentage wise yes, but think of the cost over 5 years. £50 works out at 2p a day.

The Bravia is a LCD. And yes, only a few manufacturers of panels nowadays, but it's the rest of the supporting hardware that contributes to longevity.

£200 is a great price for a TV of such size.......just pointing out other options are there

Does this have Freeview HD? Can't see it mentioned anywhere but would be surprised if it didn't.
