Price on online is £178.00 but using the voucher TDX-RPMW (LINK https://www.hotukdeals.com/vouchers/save-10-when-spend-50-for-first-time-customers-using-ecoupon-tesco-direct-1221967) the price drops to £168.00. Even at £178.00 this is the cheapest price for this entry level 32 inch (Asda had this as a Deal of The Day on 11/06/12 @ £197.00!) from a well known brand

The voucher expires on 24/06/12

Genuine Sharp TVs start at Series LE6, e.g. xxxxLE6xx ... xxxxLE7xx ... xxxxLE8xx. This is not a proper Sharp. Designed & made in Turkey by Vestel. The TV behind the Sharp badge is essentially the same as in the 'Supermarket' TVs made by Vestel.

hotukdeals.com/dea…079 ... Post #33... "I wouldn't touch anything made by Vestel and rebadged. I have repaired many Vestel products with hitachi/toshiba etc on them. They are cheap because ...they are cheap! Inferior builds and components compared to proper branded builds. It really is worth paying a little extra".
and get the sony bluray + 8 disc bundle for £69.97.
great price for a 32" TV. heat from me.
If interested in 5 yrs warranty from Richer Sounds (since this is Vestel rebadged), may be worth paying a bit more,

I need a stopgap display for the V+ box in the bedroom. Been looking at 24" Monitor/TVs which cost more than this, so I'm tempted. The Vestel connection is a bit worrying, but £170 for a 32" TV? How wrong can you go?
I'll keep an eye on this
seems to be a very good price
THanks to poster
Good enough for a kids/spare room. But you wouldn't want it as your main TV, even at that price.

I got one of these from Asda at £197 and have had it for a few weeks now. I can say that it is a fab TV, great picture and sound as far as I'm concerned. Superb viewing angles. Cheap as chips.

Personally, I don't know where I stand on the Vestel thing. They make *lots* of tvs and so are likely to have a disproportionate number of moaners - in the same way that I've noticed more people moan about Tesco on here than they moan about my local independent corner shop. If they were that carp, would these brands trust them enough to make tvs that will have their badge on and damage their brand? I'm not convinced.

All I can say is that I've got one, it's a superb tv and I can't fault it. Sure you can pay 10 times as much and get one that makes the tea and strokes your leg but I just want a tv with a decent picture and decent sound - with that in mind, I'd buy this in a flash.

So there!
What would people recommend then for a slightly better quality 32" then - say in the £300 range?

Not fussed by Smart TV or Freeview HD as its going to be connect to a FreeSat HD box.
Regardless of the brand, it's a fantastic price for a 32" TV!
Out of interest. Will a '60hz' set display output from a Virgin V+ Box?
pink thing

Don't see why it wouldn't. I've got mine running off a standard V HD Box (not a V+) and it looks fab.
I think this set accepts 50hz and 60z (the V+Box outputs 50hz as far as I understand)..just wondering in general because most other sets i fancy getting are 60hz. I don't fully understand the technical aspects and don't want to end up with something that wont work
For £170 for a 32" tv you really cant go wrong. Surely fine for the bedroom, kitchen etc...
£168 for a 32" TV and Dooper still copies and pastes the usual rubbish about how it's crap etc...

We have one of these, it's not perfect but it's pretty damn decent for £168.

Picture is good straight on but the colours deteriorate off-axis making the picture look a little bit washed if you're not on the sofa. Sound is okay until you turn it up; the chasis 'hums' on certain frequencies. Otherwise, blacks are satisfying enough to watch poorly-lit scenes in Game of Thrones and it does everything a TV is supposed to.

Compared to my old mid-end 32" IPS Samsung (LE32C530) the picture isn't as vibrant/'deep' and it doesn't have the convenient 'auto-on' feature for connected devices but at £168 vs £300 you can't really complain.
I've just ordered one. £152 with Clubcard vouchers...for a 32" TV. I can live with that.
Used to sell these at Sainsbury's, they were identical to the Celcus 'own brand' TVs, and also the same as the low-end Toshiba models. This is a fair price for them really, the front-panel touch controls are absolutely horrendous though (not that most people tend to use them) and the input lag on the Sharp TVs was always the worst of the bunch so bear this in mind if you want to use it for gaming.
I'm a tv geek but for the money I'm struggling to turn this down for my spare room. Is it going to pull my wall down?!
Can anyone confirm what this is like for gaming? After reading TheVoice's comments about input lag i'm a little bit hesitant.....

I'd be interested too. tbh, its only likely to be used in a spare room with a Wii/PS2/Xbox I think...

Just to clarify, what I said is based on the 'TV wall' of display models where I work. They're all connected up to an HDMI splitter that's fed an HD(ish) video stream, and the Sharp TVs were noticeably slower than any of the others when the picture changes. Easily a good third or half of a second delay.

Back in and ordered thanks OP heat added
Well I've ordered one, we'll see what its like. User reviews seem fine and I havent seen another TV like this for £168 (+ c/card points + quidco )

Leaving aside that there are no front-panel touch controls (they're on the side), they are much better than the much more expensive Samsung and Toshibas that I've used.
£168 for a 32" tv??!! Iin my opinion you can't go wrong, yes it might not last years but worth the gamble!! Ordered and heat added
Ordered at £168 !!!! Hope it stays here longer than the Cello IPTV lol

Thanks for the deal
First impressions: picture on SD is pretty awful, sound is unsurprisingly dreadful, EPG is actually reasonable and quite responsive. Depth is more than your average so don't be surprised to wake up to find your wall a thing of the past if you are thinking of mounting it like so.

It screams cheap and nasty but I'm keeping it. For the price you can't really go wrong even if it only lasts a year or so.

Just my frikkin luck......

I picked mine up last night. I haven't even had chance to tweak the settings and it already looks more than acceptable to me. I ran the freeview scan and it looked fine. I won't be using that though as I have a Virgin V+ box hooked up to it now. Pictures are a bit harsh at the moment, but once I fiddle with some settings I'm sure it'll be perfectly adequate for the bedroom. I'm bearing in mind I paid £168 for a 32" telly of course..;)

They're still touch-sensitive and they're still useless.
