Found 2nd Nov 2011
My first deal here so be gentle about it

Just bought the Celcus 32" HD Ready LCD TV from sainburys for astonishing low price of 169. Available online and instore. Just bought one in berryden in aberdeen and im took a brake from setting it up with my xbox just to share it with you guys.

Another fact worth mentioning its that u can also get a 32 fullhd for 199
sainsburys.co.uk/sol…182

The only reviews I cld found about them was on sainsburys page :

sainsburys.co.uk/sol…182

Couldnt found any other reviews but will get back to you once I connected this badboy with my xbox.

EDIT : It got usb on the side and it plays XVID/Divx ! Sub support present for .srt and .sub files.

heated but tempted to go for the full 1080 version

heated but tempted to go for the full 1080 version



I know i was the same, but since I mostly will be using it for xbox and some movies (non-bluray) the 720p should do me just fine.
Thsnks;)
Oh, I've been looking for a deal on a 32 inch, so tempted. Of course if I buy someone will find a good one for 30 quid less in a few days, lol. Noticed there is only 1 hdmi input, though, a little surprising.
Edited by: "Skibster" 2nd Nov 2011
Oddly the specs show the 720p one as being Freeview HD but the 1080p one as Freeview SD only.

That single HDMI is perhaps a step too far for many, but this is a good deal with the USB xvid playback being a bonus.

Hot.
Really good price for 32´. Heat!
the description says 1080p

the description says 1080p



I'm not sure what to believe in the description as it seems a bit mixed up. It also states it has freeview, but when you look down to the list of Product Features, it indicates that the tv *doesn't* have freeview.

Maybe the OP could let us know if there's Freeview and if it's 1080p later when he gets a chance?

All TVs sold in the UK must have Freeview by law, it's a mistake in the features.
Another obscure brand TV, for which no objectively conducted reviews exist.

I wouldn't spend £20 on a toaster unless it's been reviewed & recommended, let alone £170 on a TV of unknown performance.

I can't really complain you know. As a telly for xbox and movies it is superb considering the price I paid for it.
V good price.Hope it's reliable!
Heat for price
Haven't shopped online with Sainsburys before and just need some help on Nectar redemption please.

Is there anyway of doing the Reserve and Collect but paying with Nectar points when collecting (I ask, as we have enough to cover this purchase). I only appear to have option to pay by card.

Also, would the grocery code of LCJR-33J7-FL7R (£15 off £100) be likely to work?

You could put the code in to try, but doubtful. I tried one last night for £10 off that someone had put up with a different TV offer, but they had not mentioned it was a grocery code. When I got to checkout and put it in, it didn't work, stating it was for groceries. I held off buying the TV, seems a really good deal but want to see if something cheaper comes along (or one at this price with a usb PVR). I may end up getting this in the end, lol.

If you get that grocery code to work, please report back as that would tip me over into buying this tv!

If you're not happy with it, take it back
i guess if you cant stretch another £80 to get a reviewed model then buy it. but with cheap tvs a few things often start to grate on you = cheap plasticy remotes, slow menus, very few colour/brightness/personalisation options.

im not saying this tv has them but with no reviews out there....who knows?

yes
DAMNOME

yes



Thank you, I'm getting this for christmas
OOS
Spotted one of these on the shelf in our local Sainsburys last night, only one there.

Was going to leave it due to the lack of reviews etc but in the end decided to go for it, we already have a decent LG 32 tv so expected this TV to be bad compared to it. The picture is brilliant though and I must say I cant tell much difference between the two, and add a £20 Tecknica freeview HD box posted on here a few days ago and the picture is amazing for the price.

At £169 its a steal in my opinion!
back in stock online free delivery.

Bought one, should be ok for ps3, dvd/blu ray in the bedroom of my nephew.

OOS again.
I'm after 2 TV's for xmas so £169 sound ideal, but what is the difference between hd ready @ £169 and full HD @ £199, these will just be for the kids bedrooms, one will be mainly for playing xbox and some normal tv (no sky, etc) and the other will be for just tv, but will have a humax freeview recorder attached (not HD and again no sky, etc). Would this tv suit my needs, not after anything fancy, just a decent sized tv. Also with the USB port, does this mean we could play ipod etc throughj the tv.
Many Thanks
Hi,

Does anyone know if this TV has a VGA input?

Thanks.

James

Yes it does.

whats pic and sound like (be honest)
Help..advice please.
Just bought one for my teen daughter, for Christmas so its still in the box. My son is now thinking of one for his XBOX. He already has a smaller HD tv to play his games on. I am confused however as the Celsus tv is HD READY, which I thought was only 720p, yet the manual I looked at that came with the Celsus tv indicates that you can get 1080p, 1080i up to 60hz for AV and HDMI signal compatibility, and 1920 x 1200 60hz for Supported DVI resolutions. (yet the Sainsburys web page specs say it doesnt have 1080i or 1080p!!)
Can anyone who bought one recently advise me if it will be proper HD if XBOX connected via HDMI cable? I dont want to get him one if it wont be full HD for his XBOX.

James - I bought one for daughters Christmas, but had a look at manual, and it does have vga input
I bought one of these for the bedroom. The V+HD Box is connected through the HDMI port.
The Xbox 360 is connected through the VGA port and I have to say I'm well impressed with the picture and sound considering it's not a 300 quid Sony tv.
Well worth the money and mines just the HD ready not the full HD tv.
I purchased one of these today from my local sainsburys store in ashford, kent, I got the ful HD version 1080p for £169.99 in store price stated £199.99! Maybe they made a mistake>? Who knows, picture quality is very good infact seems better than my samsung LCD, well worth the money.
