not a bad price but I bought a FULL HD for £199
:p.................
Darn, accidently deleted my post when I tried to update it.

Basically, I was saying this is a good deal, but I've not been pleased with Best Buy delivery before. Anyone had a good experience with a big item like a tv?

Also, how are they for returns? The only info I can find goes on about unopened packages, but I assume if you try it out and there's a problem with it they will let you return it, and will additionally arrange for collection? Anyone know how are they are about this?

How does it compare to this one? … How does it compare to this one? http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/celcus-32-hd-ready-lcd-tv-169-99-delivered-fullhd-for-199-99-sainsburys-1050659?page=2



I've been comparing both these tvs as well. I'm no expert on anything technical, but from what I can see otherwise, the Sainsburys one is about 10 pounds lighter and it looks like the frame around the screen is thinner, which is nice. The Best Buy one has 2 hdmi ports instead of one AND it has a usb pvr, which is also a nice feature. Additionally, there are many reviews for the Isis, but none for the Celcus. It is a bit odd to me that all the reviews are so high for the Isis though (none below a 6 rating, and only a few of those) -- it makes me wonder if the review site weeds out anything too low? There are usually a few who just got a bad set or had over-high expectations who would vote pretty low on anything.

As far as customer service goes, I do feel I trust Sainsburys a bit more than Best Buy, but that's only because I've had a delivery problem with Best Buy and all reviews online say their CS is awful -- but of course more people who are mad tend to post than those who are satisfied, so I'm not going to throw Best Buy out of the running, lol.

What I'd like to know is how easy it is to return to Best Buy if there is a fault in the TV.

Does the usb pvr mean I can record tv shows to my hard drive? Also is this tv good enough for PS3? Or should I go for something smaller but branded, like LG or recently posted Sharp?. Lastly, why is the Celcus much hotter?

As I understand it, you can use the pvr with a jump drive or an external hard drive (I think). I would think it's just fine for a ps3, but there will be people who insist on brand names and so on, and they'll surely say not to get this tv. If you're picky, get a sony or panasonic and just decide to pay the difference.

As to why the Celcus is hotter, I would imagine that post was made at a time when lots of people were browsing the new offers, and this post was made when they weren't or when loads of posts were being made so it got pushed back down the page quicker. This TV is basically the exact same thing, only with a couple of additional features and the benefit of reviews, as well as costing a pound less, all of which should've made it even hotter than the Celcus.
