Much rather pay £20 more for 50" panasonic tv in store at Tesco

Much better than a Polaroid available for similar

Haemorrhoid?? Oh you mean Polaroid. You're saying they're similar names & using the former in an attempt at humour. Best leave it to the professionals.

If you're going to attempt comedy best you can cope with the hecklers eh.

And no need for the name calling. We're all grown ups.

No need for personal comments gentlemen (sorry, assuming gentlemen). Everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

Out of interest, rather than stating that the TV is ****, could you elaborate why your feel it is and also what deal you would recommend instead? Derogatory put me down comments don't help that much without any substance to claims.

Cheers :-)

Of course different people have different budgets; the Polaroid TV's are made in china which is fine, but the LCD is very poor. Get something like this: currys.co.uk/gbu…tml?gclid=CPCV2q3dzrsCFfPItAod33YA8Q&srcid=198&cmpid=ppc~gg~~~Exact&mctag=gg_goog_7904&s_kwcid=AL!3391!3!32480821284!!!g!65818316004!&ef_id=UryRqwAABBpjo1xg:20131226202931:s

This has a Sharp panel and will be decent. There will be better out there but it's a TV, the panel is the thing that needs to be right. For an extra £30-40 there will be a decent quality difference.

Thanks for that - makes much more sense. Hope you had a good Christmas :-)

Really poor quality TV. Would suggest spending a bit more and invest in a quality brand

Asda had other Polaroids as part of they Black Friday type sales where people were fighting to buy them. what they didnt show was the same people a week later fighting to return them and get their money back

Have a quick look at this Toshiba for the same money - really good ratings: argos.co.uk/sta…htm?CMPID=GS001&_$ja=cgid:8710133342%7Ctsid:41408%7Ccid:177974702%7Clid:47487814982%7Cnw:g%7Ccrid:31126020422%7Crnd:19294373461071109500%7Cdvc:c%7Cadp:1o3

Or maybe consider an additional £11 for benefit of HD tuner, greater connectivity plus full smart spec including web browser and wifi. £289.99

If that is too cheap or you don't like the badge, consider the same TV branded as Hitachi at £330 (reduced from mythical £400 if you believe the Argos marketing hype)
