Found 31st Jan 2014
Seen this listed on an earlier deal for £499 in store – I would imagine this is going to be very store specific but I also found it on Asda Direct for £629 delivered for those who don’t have stock nearby.

I like how in the specifications tab, the first and foremost thing is whether it supports DIVX X)

Would anyone really spend £629.00 on what is really a none branded tv. Sorry to P on your bonfire but this is a lot of cash to spend. I appreciate the spec and size but size isn't everything. For me it would have to be an LG, Samsung, Sony or Panasonic and if £629.00 doesn't buy me 60 inches then I would put the money towards or buy something smaller.

Sorry but in the past have had issues with none branded products such as Alba, Bush, Logik, Pentus, Matsui etc and won't buy their products.

I listed this for those interested in the store deal but had no stock local.

Yeah it’s cheap and probably not the best quality but at £620 or £499 if your local Asda has them in stock it’s not that bad of a deal. If it goes wrong Asda will repair or replace, remember the SOGA is your friend and covers you for upto 6 years from date of purchase.

I know, big size for the price but.........I know about the SOGA and 6 years but it's very difficult to get the stores to accept. I also thought that under EU law all manufacturers should give us a 2 year warranty as standard and not 12 months. Only store I have managed to get something back from after 12 months was Currys, mainly due to the girl on Customer Services knowing where the consumer stood legally. We got about £60 back on a Canon Camera after it failed when 18 months old, approx 50% of it's value.

Generally we are quite lucky with our electrical purchases although I have had a couple of dishwashers (Hotpoint & Zanussi) fail in year 3.

What I would like to see is manufacturers actually putting their mouth where their product is and stating that their products carry a 2 or 3 year guarantee. 5 year parts guarantee on washers is a joke as labour and call out fees can run to £80/£90 which is approx 30% of a new one so why bother. At one time Binns (House of Fraser) would give 5 year guarantees on all of their televisions. I have bought a couple of Samsung and Sony products which state they carry a 2 year warranty.

Yeah I know where you’re coming from.

I’ve had good luck (luckily) with appliances with only one thing breaking down which was a three year old washing machine (bought from John lewis costing £200) it was over a year outside its two year guarantee. All it took was an e-mail, I was called back the same day and they said they would cover the repair charge. So I arranged indiset to repair the machine, e-mailed a scan of the invoice and the next day I had a refund in my bank. This is why we buy almost all of our appliances from JL.

Granted not all retailers are as good as that but with most all it takes is a couple of recorded delivery letters reminding them of their obligations and possibly an engineers report detailing the fault which is also usually refunded.

I had a polaroid once. It was crap. I bought a polaroid hdmi splitter from Asda 4 weeks ago. Not cheap at £17.00 It was faulty, therefore also crap. To me £629 spent on any tv that isn't a brand name, sony, lg, panasonic, samsung etc is just £629 wasted irrespective of specification and be better spent on a tv that specialises in such products. Also if you do some research you will see that polaroid isn't polaroid anymore and like so many companies that were famous in the 70's and 80's they have been overtaken by the more modern competition. Similar fate to the british car industry unfortunately.
