Found this today in store in Currys but also online and in stock.

JVC 32" LED TV, with FreeviewHD and limited smart tv functions (Netflix / iPlayer / YouTube).

£189 for a 32" LED smartTV with built in FreeviewHD can't be bad.

Ad says 50Hz, box says 100Hz. Needed a new TV so purchased. Very happy with quality. Only thing to note is that network is Ethernet only, need to buy USB dongle for WiFi (compatible adapters cheap on eBay).

I think this is a hot deal.

Vestel

Good price
I need a 42" at a good price.

How does one tell it is a Vestel?

Couple of Toshiba's have been flagged as Vestel too.

JVC stopped producing Televisions for the overseas market a considerable time ago. Same as Toshiba. And Hitachi. Pretty much all Toshibas, Hitachis and JVCs are rebadged rubbish. Shame really, since all three of them make pretty good AV equipment for their domestic market (Japan). But the AV market has become very competitive over the past decade with people wanting big "HD" TVs, not necessarily good TVs. Even former giants like Sony are finding it difficult. General rule, if you're after a good quality set, simply avoid JVC, Hitachi, Toshiba. It's not easy to tell just by looking at them or checking model numbers. The give away is usually the OSD/firmware which will be strikingly similar if not exactly the same as most cheap brands. Having said all that, I suppose this isn't too bad for what it is going purely on spec. But take heed, it won't be a JVC. And this is probably the price it is worth anyway.

And Sharp. And Philips.

Although in the cases of Sharp and Tosh, their more expensive TVs are not rebadged, and can be bought with confidence.

I was unaware about Sharp. Learn something new everyday. The only problem is, that as far as I'm concerned, the damage is done. A TV is a big purchase. And anyone wanting to buy one is likely to want to do some research first. That can be boring enough. Now imagine having to add whether the TV in question even is what it's meant to be. Too much hassle.

Sadly, the only quality manufacturers still producing TVs (and not selling rebadged stuff in their ranges) are Samsung, LG, Sony and Panasonic.

Anything else runs the risk of being Chinese/Turkish designed/originated.
