Cheap because not free view hd built in

£9 delivery on top of that

Editor

Not the best tv but a 40" samsung @ £299.99 isnt the worst deal. Freeview HD might not be an essential for all, especially if you have sky/cable.

thankyou

Cheapest Electricals on Ebay does this set for £279 delivered.

ebay.co.uk/itm…e92

Reviews are good but it has extremely poor connectivity. One SCART, 2 HDMI and that's it. You're out of luck if you want to hook up any component devices or plug a camcorder in

" Maybe missing its original packaging" and flee bay ........for a £21 pound saving, i think id stick with ASDA who i think give a 2 year guarantee with their electrical s. This is a good deal , heat added.

Why doesn't it give me the option to pick up from store? Cause I live in N.Ireland?

Looked at this in store today and nearly bought it until I realised it only has ONE scart socket!! Poor!!!!!!!!!

I can't believe people are still using scart sockets. If you've spent a chunk of money on an HDTV - spend a little more and upgrade your AV sources to HDMI.

Was thinking the same thing, who uses scart ?!?

This was 349 in sainsburys and John Lewis in December. JL had the 5 yr guarantee, so for 299 it's not bad, but not great.
Also it only has 2 HDMI ports, 1 scart and standard freeview.
USB only plays pictures, not movies.
Certainly not a bad LCD TV for 299, but probably worth paying a little more for a better (and newer) model.
(oh, and no optical out, no network connection/online stuff)

Not really. Scart sockets are so outdated. HDMI is the way to go.

I've had HD tv's for 5 years but don't like the features on the available HD pvr's. Therefore the 2 pvr's I use need 2 scart sockets, so I wouldn't buy this TV either.

I still watch HD tv through a seperate HD receiver. So I need a tv with 2 scarts and one HDMI.

Well considering my brother does TV repairs and tells me that 80% of people still have SD pvr's I would guess the majority of the population still bother. Come back when you know what you are talking about.

No your TV only needs 1 scart.. Get a scart multiblock.. basics people. 3 in 1 out or more if needed.

So use a scart splitter for £3.50 amazon.co.uk/Way…MXM

Bought this TV yesterday at £345 so just been down to Asda to have my difference refunded.

Good TV and deal. Heat added!

Any 3D TV offers?

Lol love the scart comments, retro heaven!

well they need the scart socket so they can plug in there betamax

:pWhat is scarf anyway?

All this talk of not enough HDMI / Scart ports is redundant, if you need more just but a splitter, cheap enough on ebay

For the price I would not complain about the connectivity issues and just buy a hdmi/scart Splitter for your av sources

i still use a VCR :-)

nothing gives the same excitement as not knowing what im about to tape over.

Wow. Some people are thick. Plenty of people still have things with SCART connectivity. Old consoles for example that, for the best results, use a SCART cable.

Thanks.

Don't be mean about SCART...it has very similar potential AV quality to HDMI (and no crappy DRM).

Wonder if its 24p though?
