A 40" tv for 250 quid bargain . no freeview hd what do people think they can for £250

Banned

No 1080i!

I was going to post this. I think this is very hot. Only downside for me is the 1 year warranty.

It does have component and 1080i!

interested, worth it?
not sure to go for this over a 32" toshiba for the same price?

i just bought one of these and am happy with it as you cant complain @ 40" lcd hd + free view telly for £249.99 i also knew someone that worked at sainsburys so got the telly with there employee discount for £212.50 + 400 nectar points!!! Bargain imo. Good post OP

Tempted by this, obviously it wotn be feature rich but hopefully is good value.

Just got one for my son to replace faulty F&H from Ebuyer which have now been discontinued. That cost £227 so for £22 more an extra 8 inches and an extra USB. Seems to me to be excellent value and looks fantastic with XBox and Bluray!

out of stock already

Never heard of this company before. I woulnd't trust unknown brands. I made that mistake with an Akura TV and the sound and picture quality is very poor. You get what you pay for!

cheap and cheerful, dont expect much quality for the price but good screenage for the money.

DONT BUY THIS.... i purchased this tv and gave it back the next day. This TV is cheap and for good reason. The picture quality is absolutely awful i mean awful, my old toshiba regza tv has better picture quality than this. The price is cheap and for good reason its an awful television. Dont get caught up in the positive reviews like i did. Spend some extra cash and get an LG50PV350T this tv is absolutely fantastic.

Really? A better TV? For twice the price??
Shirley you can't be serious.

Anyway, on a serious note, I imagine this TV is very similar to the F&H one that went up with the same specs+price at eBuyer a few months ago. In which case, its the best price you'll get for a 40" 1080p telly. Heat added!

Appears to be out of stock now -- but I have seen some in stores this week. There were 2/3 in New Cross Gate earlier in the week.

oos

We got the 32" for £169 last week. Spot on value for money. We looked at the 40" but for a bedroom tv we were quite happy with 32".

graet deal

That tv might be to big/over-budgert for some but the general point it well made - there are a ton of end of line big brand quality LCDs that are as cheap as chips at the moment. Do some research, and you can pick up a real bargain.

This will end up in landfill in a couple of years

Good TV for a spare or to use in a guest or bedroom. Not good for a main everyday use TV.

Are they likely to be back in stock before the 8th?
I've had my eye on this for a while and just as i go to order it's out of stock! :'(

There is one in my local sainsburys, but I have to travel up north for Uni, so don't know the best way to get the tv...

country of origin Turkey oO

not a good sign, from what I've read a lot of cheap poorly made teles make there way from Turkey, even better known brands.

If on a tight budget why not buy a tv of much better quality, but compromise on the screen size or wait and save up

Hold the phone....so more expensive branded TVs tend to have better picture quality? There's a shocker! With all due respect, do you think many people buy these budget TVs expecting them to be as good as the branded equivalents? In my mind it's similar to buying a cheap car and expecting it to have the same quality/performance as a prestige model!
Out of interest, was the awful picture quality you referred to the same with all sources? That might sound like a silly question but I have a 22" unbranded TV which seems to do a lot better with games console images than blu rays, regardless of the recording resolution.
By the way, I'm not surprised your Toshiba was better, I had a 100Hz Regza 37" several years ago and it was the best picture quality I've ever seen on any TV, sadly the higher spec more expensive Samsung I replaced it with still doesn't quite match it, but I'll still bet that neither TV was £500+ better than this one though - and the picture is only as good as the eyes watching it!
Money saving tip for those without perfect eyesight - buy a cheap TV and just take your glasses off when you watch it oO

He's not saying just saying that more expensive TVs are better quality (as you point out, this is obvious). He is saying this specific TV is particularly bad, which is useful info.

Sorry, I do see he's trying to say that it's particularly bad, but the fact that he said "my old Toshiba Regza has better picture quality than this" implied to me that he would expect this to be as good or better, which is what I was commenting on. It's not going to be as good as the LG either - perhaps if he'd said "my old UMC/Cello/Logik/Proline/Matsui TV has a better picture" that would say to me that this is particularly bad EVEN compared to other own brand TVs. It's also useful to know what is bad about the picture (is it poor contrast, generally poor definition, too little backlight or dulled edges etc.) as it gives am idea of how critical somebody is being.

this celsus tv has better specification than my toshiba regza tv. So common sense tells me that the celcus would be better right? But the truth was the tv was not what i was expecting. For a budget tv id say go for it. But if you want to hook up your blu-ray or play other hd devices its not good.

Ah, I see, that's a fair point then, you should perhaps could have said that the Toshiba was a significantly lower spec than this. I apologise if it sounded like I'm having a go, it just seemed (as you'd mentioned two branded TVs) like you might have set the expected standard a little high.

We bought this tv a week ago and I'm watching it now. We checked before we bought it whether we could return it incase we weren't happy, guess what..... this telly is going nowhere, we love it!!!

Not another TURKEY MADE IN TURKEY?
As for the people posting about their Toshibas, do your homework.
Toshibas are made in where?
See above.

When I saw these in Bromley earlier in the week these were stacked up with a load of 40" Samsungs. At the time there was no price on any of them. Wonder if the Samsungs were going for the same price? Someone might get lucky if other stores have them.
