If you're rating this cold, please explain why.

I wouldn't class 16 watt speakers as high audio quality! 50Hz won't do a great deal either for picture quality, low brightness, low contrast ratio.. etc. Low price if all you want is size.

My preference in this price bracket would probably be this Panasonic

All 'Hitachi' TVs sold in the UK today are rebadged 'supermarket' TVs made in Turkey by Vestel.

This should be illegal. Is the same as put Tesco value cereal into a Kellogs box.

Its not illegal its just brand engineering. Many companies use OEM suppliers for their televisions including companies like Sony, Philips, Sharp, Toshiba, Sanyo etc..

Sometimes because the manufacturer has fully pulled out of television production in a certain region it could be the whole range or for others just budget models.

Not always for the worst although generally is. When Sharp pulled out of CRT production in Europe and started using Vestel, reliability actually improved because Sharp's own CRT sets were so terrible. I quite like some Tesco value products like their bran flakes, as good as Kellogs to me.



So many products are just badged and that isn't just electronics so you might as well accept the fact!

So many brands allow other companies the rights to use their name on other products.....

JCB power tools > Alba PLC
Finlux and Budget Toshiba TV's > Vestel
