This is not the 1080p model previously sold by Tesco this is HD Ready meaning 720p

Just realised that the product number is same on ebay and main Tesco site - but the spec is slightly different as one says it's 1080p and the other says not! Reviews suggest it is full HD.

It's only £65 new when using the £10 off code. Cold, sorry.
hot
Apologies. It WAS only £65 last week. Possibly will be again.
Wont play soarview for those who are able to get the irish channels in northern ireland as it doesnt support mpeg4 video format
awesome price! I sold my 3 year old 22" lcd for 79 the other day!
I don't know too much about this stuff so this may be a silly question.

What is the difference between new and refurbished? Does there tend to be problems with refurbished TV's?
why they had so many returns of this one product?

New is factory sealed, refurbished usually means these are returns which are checked and brought as close to the factory sealed condition as possible.

why they had so many returns of this one product?



The screwed up the ordering process so badly over the last 2 weeks that I think lots of people ordered several in the hope they'd get one of them. Don't know of many people actually returning sets, I had 2 of the UMC ones for the same price and they are great little sets.
384 sold ! thats a lot that went wrong oO, but at that price you cant moan, HOT
cant go wront at this price - and delivery is only £2.99
Says parcelforce 24 hour delivery is included free but then it charges you
Go through a cashback site to Ebay for an extra possible saving.
Price in title needs adjusting to include p&p.

So it's awfully close to the deal last week that they cocked up!
The only problem that I know with this model is that it needs a wall-mount with a big stand-off, as most of the sockets are on the back panel. Oh, and yes, the USB only supports a limited set of codecs and containers. I have four of these being used as monitors (one has a 1.5TB hard disk of movies plugged in the back for "off" moments ) - I'm very happy with them, but would have been even happier if I had got them via this offer
You still have DSA, if you don't like them and the same warranty as new from a company that doesn't (IME, YMMV) make a fuss about returns.

sorry havent been researching much about individual set top boxes yet, all i know is that soar view runs on mpeg4 video format, where as normal freeview runs mpeg2. however freeview HD also runs on mpeg4, so it'l be safe to say ud get soarview on a freeview HD box, but then again they tend to be more expensive

Actually any digital box should work as its a video codec issue which becomes irrelevant when connecting the box to a tv

nice one

bought one!
I need a new PC monitor - currently have a 19"

Will this be fine for that? In terms of clarity etc

Also, if I have a HDMI out on my PC, can I connect to the TV via HDMI cable?

it depends on the TV really, when chosing a monitor you should really check before buying tbh, and yes, it will work on the TV.
Third time ordering one for my my mam... I begrudge doing it after being out of pocket for 2 weeks but since it's through the e-bay outlet I have more confidence.
Full HD 1080p No

Not the same as the Tesco one for £65 cold
So is this full HD?

And what is this £65 one that so many refer to? Any link?

Can you say that for sure? The descriptions of these TV's have always been misleading. I'd bet it does have 1080p.
ive got the £65 one and that was 1080p and this one seems to be the exact one. ive got the UMC one too and to be honest, they are perfect for what I want them for and im very pleased with both tv's.
The model numbers are the same so it is the one that was on Tesco for £65.

Here's the manual in PDF, pretty much explicitly says it supports 1080p input:

Hot and bought! Missed out on the last 3 times this TV has appeared on Tesco's site.
Got one last week on £65 deal. I have 3 other free view tvs in the house. This one seems to have an inferior tuner as I get pixalation on certain channels, that I don't get on the other tvs via the same aerial. The other TV's are premium brands.I maybe just got a bad one, but we are in a poor reception area. May take it back for a refund!

I got one of the £65 1080p ones from last week (I don't know if it's the same one but it looks very similar) but it's very good for the money.
The picture quality over HDMI is very nice ("game" mode seems to look the nicest - "dynamic" forces the blacks and it makes it look grainy).
The quality over VGA is appalling so don't buy this as a VGA monitor (I'm sure that a DVI - HDMI adapter will look fine if your computer has DVI).

Full HD screens (especially LCD) are less forgiving of SD input sources.
Are your other TVs Full HD?
If so, they probably have better image processing chips inside to help blur / anti-alias SD sources.
Plasma screens soften SD sources too.
be a bonus if its 1080p, but as its for my sons bedroom not really bothered

I got one of the £65 ones and the model number is the same as this one. Mine has uneven backlight bleed around the edges which can be noticable in dark scenes. But for £65 I can't be bothered to return it.

I've found it will play films with no sound if the audio track isn't in MP3 (or PCM according to the manual). So VOB's with AC3 are silent and need to be re-encoded.
What's led like on HD Ready? I know the smaller the TV the less need for 1080p but I've seen LEd on 42" and was amazed, would a smaller Tv have similar quality?
Just ordered, missed out on the one last week. Thanks
