Found 14th Jun 2010Made hot 14th Jun 2010
Just purchased a Cello C2297F 22" LCD TV with Built in DVD for an AMAZING £99.99, down from £199.99. It was the last one in the Hanworth store but apparently a nationwide end of line instore offer, so hope someone else can grab one!

Freeview indeed! Looks wicked.

Shame it is not 1080p but still good price

would love this, but like most instore offers i doubt i will find it :-(

I bought one of these for kids bedroom. What a waste of money! Appalling picture & sound & freeview didn't upgrade. Freezing from me, you get what you pay for, I learnt the hard way with this!

Are you sure it's not 1080 it says HD Ready and as far as the pic goes, very happy. It's not as good as my 40" LCD Sony for sure but what do you expect for the money??

Not tried the upgrade yet, will give it a go later.

Down from £199.99 at Sainsbury's Lewis store in the Outer Hebrides I assume...:whistling:

You do NOT need 1080p in a TV this size and will struggle to find any full HD TVs below 32".

1080p means the screen has 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution in order to show the sharpest possible picture in larger screen sizes. It is simply not necessary for a smaller screen to have a resolution this high as it is indistinguishable from 720p (1280 x 720) at this size.

If I were you I'd be more worried about it only having a contrast ratio of 700:1 - be prepared for poor colour depth and greyish blacks. It's only got an 85 degree viewing angle according to the site also, so unless you're sat dead on facing it, the colours will look funny. Not too bad for a ton although I wouldn't be fooled by the half price tag - this was never worth £200.

My cello dvd player is going strong 4 years on. Plays Divx files as good as new

Piginabox is actually technically correct (but does not specify the definition of HD Ready). The others are not!

Do you have the product code / barcode that I can provide to my local store to check stock?

True - unless you are also planning to use it as a monitor in which case the extra real estate is nice.

An exclamation mark before the equals sign means 'does not equal' in some codes. :-D

Went to Sainsburys at Team Valley ,Gateshead couldnt see it in the Telly section

speak to the staff very nicely they will check stock nearby for you, but wont transfer it to you rlocal store

i went into Bamber Bridge today

none in stock, but price confirmed on store computer

nearest one in stock at Whiterose, wherever that was (Leeds I believe)

Hi there,

anyone can please tell me how can I buy it? The link provided is of sainsburys' web site and I didn't find this deal on their web site.

Is it a instore offer? If so I am in London, is there any store from which I can get it?

Thanks.
