Enough to rival the best ? Goodmans !

Goodmans started in 1928, they're giving the impression they're newbies at this electronics lark!

Curiously Cello list the same model, albeit starting with a C rather than a G

I wonder if Cello have bought the rights to use the name? - Goodmans own site doesn't list many of their own TV's

Ah sounds like it, Goodmans name has been used by so many companies it's hard to know what's what... Argos had the name for some time then other companies bought the rights, looks like they're now trying to get back to making more decent looking products, judging by the cool radios on their site.

the original goodmans bear no relation to this goodmans it is just a brand name used by various different companys made in china under license they use several different brand names

Sure I had a goodmans CD player when I was little!

It is a bit like you can buy a pair of Adiddas or Nike trainers for £50 or get the hi-tech or Gola ones for £15.

You can get a Samsung or Sony TV, or you can get a Goodmans or Alba or whatever for cheaper. Your getting what your paying for with this TV though.

is it as good as Amstrad?

Goodmans, Alba, JL, Tesco, Argos (basically not Samsung, LG, Panny, Sharp, Phillips, Toshiba or Sony) are all made by Vestel, a Turkish manufacturer

they are basically Vestel TVs rebadged with retailers name

you do get what you pay for

I think you will find some of those mainstream brands you mention actually DO sell Turkish-made TVs with their mainstream brand name stuck on the front.

great find thanks op! heat added!

I'm pretty sure that the lower end Sharp TVs aren't made by Sharp, my lc55cfe6241k looking at the fonts used on the back identifying HDMI ports etc seem cheap and customer support is through UMC.

I grew up wearing Hi Tec

In fact I wear them when I'm in surgery

Goodmans is okay compared to Alba. I had a Goodmans cd player which was very good quality and out lasted my Sony hifi.

This can't be any good for that price?!

Goodmans of old doesn't exist anymore, Argos bought the brand name when they went bust.

Hmmm... title says Freeview HD but specs say Freeview. No mention of scart or PC connectivity, and it doesn't look particularly slim. Although apparently it does have 100Hz refresh rate and only consumes 20W of power...

​oh man, Matsui... those were the days.

Are their products still available? If not I'm buying the rights to the name to bring back the good old glory days.

It wants £50 postage from me. Bah.

We had a Matsui TV - got it in 2000 and it was a 28" widescreen set with OnDigital for £300 - quite a bargain! However, the OnDigital receiver in it wouldn't do red button or interactive so was a pain at times.

Ah, it seems Goodmans outsourced LED production to Cello as suspected..... but who makes them for Cello? - pretty sure they buy in the parts from China and assemble, sorry, manufacture them in the UK

This looks like a good TV, I'll buy one for our holiday house. It seems incredible that I can buy a 48" TV for about a day's pay.

Or maybe your days pay (which most don't put into the public domain) is actually a weeks pay for many people, and that's what is really incredible here?

Poor brand walk away

I'm not sure what was your question. I suspect you meant this to be a social comment, which was not the point of my comment at all (which was clearly that the TV was cheap compared with wages). This is a cheap deals web-site, if you want a forum for socialism you should look elsewhere.

Any question was rhetorical. I simply pointed out what is cheap for someone who is able to buy something at £225 equating to a days pay, is not relative to most other people on here who certainly don't earn anything like that a day, if indeed in a whole week. That you are stating this is cheap on the basis you commented on is just wide of the mark. My comment was in no way a socialist comments, and lets not deflect from what I said. It was really not needed for you to modestly tell us all your earnings either to make your point if you genuinely do consider the item to be cheap.

Not wishing to get into a pointless argument: assuming 225 working days year at £225/day would imply a salary of £50,000. Lots of people (including in the public sector (such as junior doctors and fairly senior teachers)) earn that much. Your model would imply that the norm was £9000/year, which is far less than the average (£24,000/year). Neither of us is exactly right, but that was far from my point.

Do we the know the demographics of HUKD users?

Do we the know the demographics of HUKD users?


I doubt that anyone knows that information, but I suspect HUKD has a very broad spectrum of users. It is an excellent site and used (to my knowledge) by everyone from university students earning nothing to chief executives earning £200,000/year.

Good price for that size but have to agree with questionable brand.

Whilst you are of course entitled to your opinion, I wonder whether it is based on any fact?

I wondered about this brand, so I have read the reviews for this TV on Amazon, and I have to admit they were generally very good indeed. Perhaps there really are no bad brands these days. Our 40" Toshiba (I remember paying rather more for it, largely because of my perception of the brand at the time) has gone wrong twice in less than two years.

This morning I noticed a Digihome 43" smart TV for sale at £199 in the local Tesco. This seems to be the regular price, so there is no rush to buy, and I've just read the reviews, which are also very good. I suspect there will be someone here that will say that Digihome is rubbish, and that it is important to buy a brand costing three times as much, but I wonder how much of that is domestic snobbery rather than fact.

I paid £199 from Currys for the same one and subscribed (to get £100 off which was cancelled as I was not in an OnDigital area)! It was a bargain. With digital swap over the tuner did not work and one had to buy a set top box.
Those were the days!
