3D for £250....

If what a lot say is true about tellies being rebadged to a Toshiba, LG or whatever else, then this has to be worth a look at least!
cracking price for a 3D television with an LG Panel
It isn't full HD for the full hd concerned customers.
Edited by: "PraxxtorCruel" 31st Dec 2011
on the basis that my 32" tv cost me £199 then for £50 more you are getting 3D and a 5 year warranty

that has to equal HOT

Do you have any links, or is that just hearsay? It's certainly interesting if true though!
the argos and tesco deals look better unless you have already got a 3d blu-ray player
they are full hd and 42" for £399

unless you want to spend and extra £150 quid.only require a 1 year warranty and want a 42" tv how are they better deals?

Not full HD and contrast ratio is poor, will give this one a miss.

Excellent price for 3D, but if the 3D is shockingly bad, then it doesn't matter what you pay.

So these are Passive 3D Panels, according to ebuyer? Does that mean this 32" TV won't even do 720P in 3D?
Probably worth extra £23 odd for 5 year warranty though? Glasses are £1.

What if the 2D isn't too good either. Sometimes less is more. I would rather pay £250 for a bottom of the range Panasonic with a good picture and a track record for good reliability than pay £250 for this. Ok, it's got a 5 year guarantee but it's still a pain if you have to send it back.

Cello state they all come with 4 pairs.
After their last TV fiasco on the 24" LED Tv. I shall be avoiding this one. But Still may appeal to others
Bunglistik...

Mostly based on chatter on forums, but even here in this thread, it's mentioned that the panel is made by LG. Maybe I'm a cynic but it puts me off paying through the nose for a telly with a Toshiba or LG sticker on the front when you can't be sure if an own brand might actually be the same thing for much less.

Just a thought!?!
I would avoid. All these no-name supermarket brand televisions use graded panels. Yes, if you take the back off it will say LG or whatever, but it's the panels that weren't good enough for LG televisions.

A-Grade go into the well known brands (Sony, Philips, LG, Panasonic, Samsung, Toshiba etc)
B-Grade go into the supermarket sh1te (Logik, Cello, Wharfdale etc)
C-Grade usually gets remanufactured/reworked to make it a B-Grade.
Below C bin (for an LCD, this amounts for less than 0.01% of panels, for a Plasma, it's about 0.05%)

In short, spend a bit more on a brand you know.

I bought one of the cello 42" tellys from ms and a lot of people complained about the light from the edges affecting the tv. I had the problem as well but once viewing actual video it was nt noticeable except on very dark scenes. For people saying who make the panels all I can say they weren't very good quality. A budget brand maker.
I can't believe some of the comments on here. This isn't a 2000 tv reduced to 250 quid, its a cheapo tv which even compared to some high end tv should still be selling for around 300 to 400 quid without a 5 year guarantee,

On what basis to you think it should be selling for £300-£400? Because it's 3D? Its is not full HD or 24p! I doubt much if this TV is of any quality on any input to be honest!
It appears to be remarkable value but whether it's much good is another matter and without seeing it in the flesh then I can't really say.

The reason LG panels appear in so many different brands of TV is surely due to the fact they're one of the few LCD panel manufacturers!

Why have you posted this twice?
Less than £1 a week over 5 years - and well worth something while it has balance of g'tee left.
Which tv's can properly do 24p ?? Not many.
Isn't 32" a bit small for a 3d effect ? Just asking don't shoot!
emiratesstadium

Why have you posted this twice?


presumably int he hope that the double negative created by posting bull twice will create a positive?

the supermarket brands will sell more than the branded equivalent, to suggest they use sub standard branded screens would effectively be stating the likes of LG et al make more 'poor' screens than they do 'good' on the same production line, which is clearly bollards.I'll accept the possibility that the set is finished off in lower quality casings, buttons & speakers, but what is been said here is paramount to saying a Skoda chassis is the ones that weren't good enough to be under a VW.
Can someone confirm to me that I'm right when I say the 3D won't even display at 720P due to the 3D technology used being of the passive variety?

Of course they use substandard screens compared to a respected brand, the quality of the image will be clear to see. Just becuase something is cheap it does in no way suggest its value for money! Buttons etc have nothing to do with what you actually pay for when buying a TV, you pay for the quality of the panel.
I've actually seen this tv in operation as Makro have it in for £199 +vat, the 3d was as good as any Samsung / LG / Sony set I have seen, I viewed it from several distances and to me the further away I moved the better the 3d got!! Well worth paying £10 extra for the 5 year warranty!

And the processing engine, the screen isn't everything. The same screen can look a lot different when set up differently, if you believe its the panel that makes all the difference you are very mistaken. You pay for the software, the interface, and of course the shiny badge on the front.

No doubt the badge has a lot to do with it... but the software!? So they pay a team of programmers to develop it and then they use the same software on hundreds of thousands of tellys... I doubt the software cost accounts for 5% of the cost.
could this be a glitch?? X) only joking.


Its a **** telly!!
I would be embarrassed to have a cello branded tv

You would have to hide it when the neighbours come round for drinks in case they think you are chav.

Do they sell these in the M&S home stores? Would want to see it in the flesh before considering it.
Picture quality depends on Panel & Processor specification. A good Processor is especially critical for SD picture quality.

A good Panel matched to a poor Processor will result in poor picture quality. A poor Panel matched to a good Processor will result in poor picture quality.

The price of this TV dictates that cheap Panels & Processors have been used. The inevitable outcome is poor picture quality.

Expect the mediocrity that comes with low-cost, low-specification components. It's a case of "never mind the quality, feel the width". Your money, your choice.
