Here I am again with the TV deals. I'm just too indecisive and keep finding better deals.

This isn't LED backlit like others I've posted but is a fantastic price for a 25" 1080p Full HD TV. 2x HDMI and 1x VGA.

I'm considering not picking up the 24" LED one from argos tomorrow now that I've found this.

In my other post (for a more expensive 28" one) a user said that they're a good brand. I've never owned one but seen them on display and look top notch.

Bought my nan a 19" hanspree telly for her bedroom, she loves it. Great pic, looks to be well built. Only problem is the tinny underpowered speakers... Its been working without any issues for over a year now, much longer than my samsung lcd tv lasted!

That's good to know. The speakers aren't an issue for me as I'd be routing my 2.1 PC speakers into the headphone socket as I wan't a monitor first, TV second. Thanks for giving me more confidence about the brand. I hope when I'm old I have a grandson/granddaughter that buys me TVs

bought this last time it ws posted, and very content with it.

Hi dcdobson. Everything in that list is just a monitor. Not a TV.

Seems like a good deal.Heat .

These are going like hot cakes, 4 have just been sold while i've been looking at it.

Would this look poor if used as a monitor?

That's what I'd be looking at using it for. So hopefully not.

I bought an F&H one from ebuyer and it died after 2 weeks and is going back, hence why I'm shopping around for more. It was a TV but the picture quality when used as a monitor was exceptional.

bought a hannspree a few years ago and its great, good picture and sound quality and they have a good number of ports and connectivity options - dont be put off by the name.

I bought this on ebay for the same price about a month ago. Really happy with it and works well with ps3 games and blu-rays. Built in freeview too.

Excellent , very very highly rated on the AV Forums . Had mine 3 years now and not a single issue . Friends have since bought them after seeing mine (and hearing price)

looking for a TV for the lads bedroom, this has 2 x HDMI & 2yr warranty, the larger (28") get excellent reviews, this could have backlight bleed issues, but at this price it might be worth a go!

I've got this TV, from ebuyer, same sort of price.

It's really nice and does work with the PC quite nicely. Mine is connected via VGA and it happily does 1080 res, which is nice. The picture over HDMI with the consoles is equally nice. The speakers are very average, a bit too tinny.

I would however recommended it. Is the guarantee 2 years from the ebay outlet? It is on Ebuyer.

Gah. I'm in completely two minds now.

What would people in the know buy? This hanspree or the Bush LED that I posted.
hotukdeals.com/dea…647

I don't mind paying an extra £30 odd quid to have an LED backlit screen as I was very impressed with the picture quality on the F&H one that died. But the heat this is getting is giving me second thoughts. I'm also under the impression that the Bush one got a lot of cold votes from people that don't really understand the difference between LED/nonLED.

Any advice would be really appreciated and as another posted said, "these are selling like hotcakes" so I don't want to miss the boat.

Yeah, go through their ebay outlet on the link

Got this TV when on offer the last time. Returned it as it had quite a thick band of bleeding at the top and bottom of the screen. Not really noticeable in a lit room, but in a dark bedroom really annoying. Sound quality ok, but volume didn't go low enough, again only a problem in a bedroom when not wanting to wake up the better half...

Ahh gotcha , silly me, might just get it through ebuyer anyway.. next day delivery

hannspree are part of hannstar, who aquired technology transferred from hitachi and toshiba... according to what ive read. parents have a 37" and i know someone with a 32" lcd by them. picture quality is very good. for a budget they are good!

Good TV, brought this TV around 6 weeks ago. Picture quality is fine and good value. It sits in my kitchen and is hooked up via SCART to my free sat box. Everything works a treat

Havn't Ebuyer had this at this price for months now?

Yes, but it's £5 cheaper through their ebay outlet.

I got the 28" version for a friend from ebuyer it is as good picture wise and quality of plastic etc wise as my samsung

Does this have freeview built in. I might be being daft but I can't find it in the spec anywhere?

Original Poster

Yes, it has freeview built in.

One of the best TVs I've ever bought. Picture quality is great and the remote control is a masterclass in how it should be done.

I think Hannspree are quite good. They used to make quirkly TVs but their normal sets are just fine. The finish on them isn't that good on the big TVs but then again they are cheaper.

Posted numerous times but a decent spec television for a great price I believe.

why is this expired? they still have stock.

Also bought a 32" about 3 years ago. Only thing is you cannot work with a sky control as there is not code for it as yet. Getting HD fitted on Saturday so hope engineers knows some new codes to try. No problems with TV recommend the brand. Tempted on this one. Heat

great TV, but as said in a earlier post the minimum volume is loud, so no good at say 2am at night as it will probally wake someone else up in your house.

Andy, I read somewhere on a review site that there was a workaround for it. I might be wrong. If I bump into it again, I'll PM you.

I bought one from Ebuyer directly for £169.99 a couple of weeks back. It's really good for the money.

Small gripes... using the X-Contrast - the option seems to be greyed out permanently. Doesn't matter if I'm using HDMI, Freeview, Component... Can anyone shed any light on this???

Also the power lead comes loose with the slightest nudge (I do move it slightly when watching a film on the sofa, or gaming in a chair) and the TV is pretty loud, even with the volume on 1 - I had to connect it to my stereo to be able to quieten it down for when my girlfriend's asleep! Although funnily enough I have to have the TV volume up half way to get a decent level from it.

EPG is pretty rubbish too. Very small and you can't seem to scan through channels without viewing them - which almost defeats the object of it for me.

I couldn't find a decent 26" TV for under £200, so am well chuffed with this. Minor gripes aside, it's brilliant. Haven't tried it with my PC though.
