there was a whole stack of these at the front of the store in Rochdale when I went in last night.

'Sup! Went to Asda today to pick one of these up for my Nan, she needed a better TV in her room (as well as one that had built-in freeview for ease of use). So, thought I'd put up my impressions here!

-Nice design, sleek, shiny black plastic. Looks reminiscent of the Samsung LCD sets. Nice swooping curves on the edges, and a funky blue light
-For the energy conscious, you can actually turn it off from the remote rather than put it into standby. To turn the set on you have to flick a button on the bottom right of the TV. Handy for the bearded Greenpeace members here..
-Setup is simple enough, press the quick start button, select what you want the TV to do (find analogue channels, find digital channels) and it does the rest for you
-DVD playback is in progressive scan, however don't expect miracles from the TV upscaling a 576p picture. Its fine for my Nan's bedroom, and if all you want is something to watch a DVD on before you go to bed you'll be fine. But to be honest, I've probably just been spoilt from upscaled DVDs on my 360, so don't read too much into that criticism.

Unfortunately the aerial at my nan's house is ****, its getting replaed on Monday, so I wasn't really able to give the TV a good shake-down. But in all honesty, for a bedroom TV its more than adequate. £188 for 19" LCD with Freeview and DVD playback is a good deal.

I took some pictures but the quality on my Nokia 6120 camera is appalling, noise everywhere and poor exposure levels. Don't read too much into the pictures, the quality on the set is pretty much the same as any other 19" LCD I've seen, the pictures do not do it justice! Still, might be of use to someone.



Edit: I'd just like to point out, I own a 19" LCD I bought from Argos for £145 after Christmas (Acoustic Solutions, its around £130 in store now) and had two friends also follow my lead, so I've seen quite a few of these sets in action. The Cello set is pretty much the same as the rest, menu system and all.
