Note: You need to be capable of building a PC to be able to use this product (or know somebody who could do it for you) and no instructions are supplied.

This High Definition LCD TV / PC is the ultimate home entertainment centre combining the best of both worlds.
It consists of a HD LCD TV with a PC chassis which forms an integral part of the TV.
It has SCART, HDMI, component, VGA, composite etc inputs.

You will need to supply and fit some of the PC components yourself meaning you can build the PC to your exacting specifications.

Here is what you receive:

1 x TV / PC Unit
1 x TV Stand
1 x Media Centre Remote Control
2 x TV Tuner Cards
1 x CPU Fan
1 x DVD Writer (built in)

What you need supply:

Motherboard, Processor
RAM, Hard Drive,
Graphics Card (or on-board graphics)
Software i.e. Windows Media Centre

PLEASE NOTE: The TV will not function without the presence of the motherboard, CPU & RAM etc. i.e. it needs the PC components to be added in order to be powered up. The TV does not have an integral TV tuner, but you are supplied with 2 TV tuners for the PC. (The TV does have independent HDMI, SCART and Component inputs which you can use instead of the PC inputs, however, the PC components do need to be present in order for the TV to power on)

I am looking for a PC/TV combo and at first I thought this sounds good but adding up the cost of the extra components and the usefulness of this combination I came to the conclusion that an ordinary 32in tv connected to a cheap notebook would be better for me. Also, if one breaks I could still use the other. If this was around £120, I would have a go. Not voting because someone else might think different.

not voted but i would get this hotukdeals.com/ite…c-a and hook it up to your decent tv
this would be better if it took mini itx boards with atom processor as they can be brought for £50 odd

netbooks are not great at outputing to a larger tv

didnt think this was great value either...would rather spend a little more on something decent

I have a better picture from my notebook than from Freeview


I can't see why people say it's not good value, when it's cheaper than … I can't see why people say it's not good value, when it's cheaper than regular 32" TV's as it is!



You cannot use this as a tv unless you spend extra for the pc components

that prob says more about your freeview, scrolling jumps a bit with my acer 1

have a look at the revo mate its probably right up your street :thumbsup:

i think its a pretty good deal for the right person to be honest...

I would have been pretty tempted if it wasnt limited to Socket 775 tho..

If I had spare 775 components about I'd go for it, all I have is some AMD stuff though so no use to me

Think that this is a reasonable buy and have always found Bigpockets to be a reasonable supplier in fairness to them however would prefer to buy this item using the 5% discount code that used to work but no longer seems to work.

Does anyone know of any reviews for this product?

Voted hot anyway.
All the best.
