After having my LCD and being a thin size, I see CRT and think them so massive nowadays. Is there any digital-ness in this or is this plain old analogue. If the latter then I guess you would need to buy some converter when we all become digital?

Will accept Digital TV but is not HD Ready ie can hook up to Freeview/Cable Box/SKY Box. HD programming is still minimal

Already posted on the other thread for this at a higher price, but for anyone interested I've had this set for a couple of years and it works very well. Great quality picture and at this price a bargain.

If you're happy with a CRT, which at the low price end of the market has a better picture than a budget LCD, go for this one.

Thats the 28" version, apologies for the link have put the correct one in now, 32" still £199 before codes+quidco

never buying anything from littlewoods again as a matter of principle

If the telly is to be positioned in a corner, does it really matter what's behind?

At the end of the day a CRT set will give a far superiour picture to a similarly priced LCD one..

id far prefer this to one of the cheap £300 32" lcd ones
only benefit of lcd at present is if you are lacking space
picture on my crt is far superior

I am so so tempted to get this, it's the same price at Additions. I've currently got a portable TV in my student digs, so 32" would be a dream...argh my catalogue limit has been extended as well. I think I'll sleep on it.

Littlewoods and Vouchers!!!!!!! Sounds like trouble brewing. :whistling:

Is not HD Ready but does accept Digital TV signal via hooking up to Freeview/Cable Box/SKY Box to receive Standard Digital TV.

Very hot deal, still very happy with my Sony wega CRT, and the picture is far superior to many LCD's I have seen if using a freeview signal or SD sky signal:thumbsup:

Most people seem to forget this in the mad rush for flat panel screens. A CRT will generally have a better quality picture (for SD stuff) than a similar priced (and in some cases much higher priced) LCD.

No denying you get a lot of telly for your money :-D

I would have to agree with previous post that this telly will probably wipe the floor with many high def lcd tellys as this is designed for standard/freeview broadcasts. The problem with hd tellys is the have to stretch or upscale (same thing) to produce the picture on screen which obviously makes it worse for wear.

If you have the room and are none to bothered about hd at this point i would say this is a good upgrade for someone with a 28" widescreen or even someone that is still using a 4:3 ;-)

This sort of kit was £1000 a few years back an at 20% of the cost looks like a good find for those that dont have the state of the art console and are not likely to need one, this is more than good enough for freeview via digi box or pvr.

Surly you are not that young that you have forgotten what an ordinary analogue crt TV is! the shops where full of them 3 years ago.

agreed CRT still rules for Standard Definition and blacks, but LCDs are better for High Def, resolution and games
my panasonic PK quintex 32in 100hz was the first 100hz crt and tho its 9 years old, its miles better than alot of the LCD rubbish ive seen....the samsung's PQ in general are awful.....artificial bright looking colours that look fine in the showroom, but leave it like that and say goodbye to your retinas!! The sony 1080 v/w/x series 40 in screens and panny 37in screens looked better/more natural
terrible SD (esp football).. the panny 37inc with motionflow looked ok tho but still a long way to go yet
anyway despite this i shall be investing in some lcd's in the sales and suffer the inferior/better PQ depending on source...lol!

I'd just say, pay a bit more and get an LCD.

If your like 99% of the TV owning public in the UK that doesn't watch any HD content, this TV is great and will outperform any flat panel with standard definition TV like freeview or sky, and also being a CRT your get far better blacks/contrast and unrivalled motion handling on fast scenes like sports and action films.

Do not get an HD LCD or Plasma For standard defintion TV.

ordered, hope this goes through. digitaldirect were selling this for £225 4 months ago with stand, was going to go to empire and ask them to price match it. Would have come to £~220 but wa too late as digitaldirect had sold out and i hadn't printed out the page. SO this is an excellent deal. Thanks

Do you know of anyone watching HD all the time? Thats the big problem with LCD at the mo, not enough HD signals to warrant a downgrade (IMHO) to an LCD, I am not budging my 28in CRT until LCD has made VAST improvements or all signals become HD.......I really see no point, except they look prettier :roll:

It is very similar to the digital versus film debate in photography.......digital has been a revoultion in this field but it still does not have the quality of film, emulsions produce far better dynamic contrast and resolution......Saying that I love my £400 digicam and would not go back to film because of its ease....I think we learn to live with modern but inferior technology! :x

fair point re: photography - although with digital you do alot more to the pic after it has been taken - oh, im sure the purists will luve that..hehe!
im only gettig an lcd for size and so i can place it nearer to or on the wall, so i can play my xbox360 at a higher res and i will invest in a 1080p dvd player and a decent seperates av hifi...eventually i will invest in an hd-dvd or blueray player when the battle is over (hard to say who will win - blueray is better PQ, but HD-DVD is much cheaper to produce and better supported by everyone except mainly sony)

Blu-ray does not have better picture quality in the slightest, you just made that up. HD-DVDs are cheaper to produce but that makes no difference to the end consumer. Blu-ray has more films available and more companies backing it, not HD-DVD. Really, this is a lot of misinformation you're peddling.

I feel I have to add my bit here:

People worrying if a tv is "digital-ready" has been scaremongered by the hype about the analogue switch off. Currently, most TVs can receive a digital signal if you buy a £15 set top box, even old b/w ones! Only thing to be aware is.. if your tv does not have a scart input, then get a more expensive stb, as the cheaper ones do not output properly via the rf socket.

I have had this tv for the last 2 years. The only fault I can point to is that the shelves on the cabinet are rather flimsy. Apart from that, I have no complaints. The picture quality is excellent and arguably better than some of the cheaper and smaller LCD TVs, even in HD mode. If you do not have a HD source, then you'll struggle to find a Tv with better picture quality.

Sound quality is about the best you will find out there. Better than some cheaper stereo systems, imho.

The cons, as in all CRT TVs, are: high power consumption, huge footprint... it will not fit into your regular hatchback car, and low sell-on value.. dont buy with intention to sell on for a profit!

I bought the 28" version a while ago for the in laws. This TV has a brill picture much better than the lcd and flat screens (unless in HD mode). But you do need some space for it it is quite deep!!!

Exactly - My region ain't even going to be switched off until 2012. I'll probably have replaced my current TV bought last year by then.

How many people have been persuaded by store sales staff to to upgrade their TV's, when in all honesty some may not even be around in 2012.

And the LCD v CRT debate - It's the kings new clothes myth.

I have a 32" Toshiba LCD which cost over £1.1K last year - and everytime I see my old Panasonic 25" CRT that I offloaded to my parents - I'm still thinking, apart from the HD for my Xbox360, why did I upgrade?

Yes it is big. and heavy, I agree. Power consumption is actually pretty good though!

Power Consumption: Average / Standby110W / 2.7W
Dimensions (W x H x D, mm)864 x 587 x 550
Net Weight (kg)52

Helpful thread. Will pick one up for me Nan!

Great deal. For those who want a smaller set - and are on a budget - this is a must. It's very hard to get a decent CRT these days.

machofairy;1387860

Compared to a plasma screen CRT's are low power. The power consumption of most LCD and CRT's is quite close.

After seeing an HD fed LCD (Sky Sports HD) in Sony Centre I'm struggling to find a reason to buy an LCD (other than it's slimmer/prettier).
The picture was at best OK (compared to CRT) but when there was movement (one day cricket game) - it was akin to waving your hand in front of your face the picture was so flickery.

From normal SD feeds into LCD how good really IS the picture?

A really good deal, heat added, just tried to order one for a friend but they are all gone now, Kays and GUS are the same (though same telly shows at £229 there)

Yes it appears to be out of stock now unfortunately.

I doubt it.

It is true, HD Plasma TVs generally handle standard def TV better than HD LCDs as they usually have more advanced picture processing and scaling chips and software which is why there also more expensive than LCD's, and often plasma's have a lower resolution than LCDs which means theres less rescaling needed.

However an SD CRT TV will still in most circumstances look better than plasma wih standard def tv

The problem with plasma is your looking at either a panasnic, fujitsu or pioneer for the best performance and they ain't £167 and again are primarily designed for HD not SD.

Pity, this would have done my parents perfectly, this is exactly what they are after.

Another deal missed because of my stupid internet connection! This would have been perfect for my nan as her telly went on the blink over xmas =( Does anyone know of a similar TV for £200-ish?
