My old man has this set. It's good value for money, but not flawless. I would recommend it to anyone on a budget however.

Ebuyer also do free 9 month credit, so £41 a month shouldn't stress ye too much for a big tv.

the new version is out with 2xHDMI for £395 on intekx. Just for information

Interesting to see other HUKDers thinking along the same lines as myself.

There is a separate thread running on this model, see my post from earlier today re other retail options:

hotukdeals.com/for…551

Another question about this set, relates to the depth. The dimensions show it as being fairly chunky (27cm), but the side-on images don't relect this (see Misco site for example). I am wondering whether the depth measurement reflects the base that it comes with, rather than the set itself. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

Thanks.

That's a different model (JT02) that has differing specs such as no Picture in picture and some other bells and whistles.

The YT08 is there at £399.99 - same specs as OP.

I have the JT model...The 27cm refers to the stand

The 27cm depth must be the stand because I have this set and it's certainly not 27cm deep as a unit.

The Good
- Great Price and looks good
- fairly well featured including PIP and POP
- Good sturdy base.

The Bad
- Only 1 HDMI input
- Blacks don't look like true blacks, but having seen other LCD's, this seems to be a problem with them all.
- temperamental software - about three or four times since I have had it (March), I have had to turn it off at the mains to get it come back on. could just be me though.

The Ugly
- The Remote - ugly, cumbersome and a poor working range to the TV.

That said, I paid £479 for it in April this year and for £369, it's a good proposition for budget HD and would reccomend it.

I didn't know that they did interest free. I bought this TV yesterday and paid by credit card. All I can find is a page that lists all possible Payment Methods here:

Personally, I would avoid the Hanspree Sets. I had a 32" JT01 a couple of months ago and I sent it back to the retailer under the long distance sales act. I was primarily using mine for VGA input via a PC. The picture was great, however, when you were watching a film, there was extreme noticeable motion tear and horrid ghosting. I also had problems with the sound in mine as it kept dropping out. I know it wasn't the source as all these are resolved when I plugged back into my 3 year old Samsung LCD.

After buying this and experiencing the above issues, and reading another popular message board (not sure I can mention the name) and seeing the problems others were having, I sent mine back and got a Toshiba 32" which I can say I'm honestly really pleased with.

Maybe I had a bad egg, I hope your sets work out for you if you've ordered one.

Thanks

i also had a hannspree 32" (jt02 model though),and returned it with the same problems bought a samsung 32" instead

If anyones interested, new version with 2xHDMI from "clearancebuys" for £359 with next day delivery.

Same here, I purchased a 32" Hannspree HDTV LCD a couple of months ago on the strength of numerous positive reviews. Seemed like the perfect deal for £299 delivered. How wrong was I :-(

I am aware that most LCDs are not better than regular TVs when viewing non HD broadcasts / channels but the quality was appalling. The main problem was whilst watching anything with black on the television, the black became jet-black and no detail was visible within that part of the image. The fault was still present after adjusting relevant settings within the ‘Picture Menu’ and trying different input devices i.e. antenna, cable, digital, DVD player, games console via different connections RF cable, S-Video, SCART e.t.c.

I think what sent it back was trying to watch Ace Ventura on the set. I was laughing more the fact that I couldn't even see what was going on every time he went indoors :giggle:

Fair play I didn't connect it to any HDTV devices ( my 360 ) but as it was for mainly normal viewing, it was the pits. The engineer said it sounded like a faulty t.v. but also added that is wasn't worth risking a replacement as there were many similar problems with these sets.

not a good deal sorry

How can it support 1080i if it only has 768 resolution?
Also 1000/1 contrast ratio is very very poor...even on a smaller sizer screen

Presumably meaning that it will accept a 1080i signal and down-convert.

Looks better, and not that more expensive....

All 5-star ratings so far.

Curiously though, it appears to have been made by the same people. See review dated 27/10/2007, this guy bought a Hannspree and an Elonex.

Agree spec is slightly higher but, as we don't have any HD inputs, think I am going to bite the bullet and go with the former.

w#nkspree ... ebuyer filter all the buyer reviews,they let all good reviews through and only let a couple of bad ones,i nearly bought one until i did some research and found out loads of people left bad reviews of this set and ebuyer did not post them,the jist i got was it no good for watching sd tv or films due to motion blur and poor black light but its ok for your 360 with a hd source,you get what you pay for :giggle:

so is this ELonex better specs than the hannspree one?

which brand is more "safe" to deal with.

What abotu playing films with xbox 360 hd dvd player.

Voted cold as this is an old model. The newer version - with improved contrast and connections - is available for only £395.

how much did you pay for your samsung?

bit of a noob question but would i need to purchase anything in order to wall mount the 37" hannspree?

I bought the 32" version of this LCD TV and have been very pleased with it. Xbox 360 via component is excellent; Phillips DVP 5960 via HDMI is excellent; and Humax 8000T via RGB scart is very good.
£369.99 strikes me as a great price for the 37" version.
Just my two cents worth!

The other model does have an extra connection, and slightly higher contrast, but is inferior in a number of other ways (no picture-in-picture functionality for instance). I went to alot of trouble to post a lengthy summary of the specs yesterday, but for some reason they never appeared. You can get them from the hannspree website.

This might be true, would recommend that anyone does their homework. I have read through hundreds of pages of reviews on different sites before making my decision. Bear in mind that you do get a 2-year wty with this TV, and it is virtually disposable after that at this price.

Yes, but the model is vesa compliant. Haven't decided which mounting to get yet, but I am looking at options in the region of £25 to £30.

A £400 TV disposable after only 2 years!? :whistling:

I've always been tempted by the Hanspree's but I need a TV for more than just my 360 and from all the reviews I've seen that appears to be the only thing they succeed consistently at.

A £400 TV disposable after only 2 years!?



Ah, but that's not the way to look at it. The way to look at it is to ask what it would cost to replace this tv, with exactly the same spec, in 2 years time. My guess would be in the region of £200.

Given the way that technology moves on, perhaps you might not want to pay a high premium a tv that lasts for too long.

In my experience, buying named products does not necessarily mean a guarantee of quality. I speak from personal experiences with both new cars and electrical goods.

All in my humble opinion of course.

When you get this, please post your views - I am seriously thinking about getting this TV firstly because it seems like a lot of TV for the money ( I think back to LG a few years back before folks realised they were good.. ) "you get what you pay for" etc all very well, but I [COLOR="Blue"]do[/COLOR] think a lot of people are 'spending snobs' ie it simply CAN'T be good at that price. [COLOR="Blue"]But it can be, right[/COLOR]? :?

...and secondy, it will match the kitchen 'white' goods perfectly.

I'd be sending it a (wirelss) scart signal or possibly a direct RF signal from skybox's rf output (because of location) - so I'd be really grateful to hear you opinions on picture quality for both of these options. :thumbsup:

cheers in advance.
