This is my first deal posting and I apologise if I don't have all of the facts, but it seems like a cracking price for a 26" LCD TV. I was in my local Tesco (Aylesbury) today and they had their Technika 26" LCD TV on sale for just over £179 -- originally £249, then reduced to £239, and now to this price. I don't recall the model number but it is probably this one (LCD26-209) and not the more expensive model LCD26-M3. I have included a link to the Tesco Direct product which is shown at £239.97.

Pricing label was their standard yellow sale label so I assume it's not just a "one store only" deal.

I'm a bit dubious of Technika compared to name-brand TVs as I think it is Tesco's cheap-and-cheerful own brand but I'm sure I'll be corrected by plenty of happy Technika TV owners. At this price it's hard to turn down such a deal if you're in the market for a TV for the bedroom or gaming!

Looks good to me.I'll give it some heat.

Thats a good deal, they are coming down in price loads. What ever happened to the 14" black and white portable tvs we had in our bed rooms???????

Still got one up in the loft. It was the first TV my wife was ever bought when she was a kid, so "for sentimental reasons" she refuses to chuck it out even though it will probably never get used again.

Mind you, it's a Sony and still works after 25+ years. Maybe I can sell it on eBay as an antique...

Saying £239 on the link

Perhaps because its an instore deal as it says in the title?

Hot!
I'm surprised no-one has complained that it's not full HD yet :roll:

im thinking of getting a tv for my room, currently have a 22" CRT style TV (bought it for £20 off a mate and done well for 2 years!) Is it worth getting something like this or spending more for 32" or going all hog and getting full HD? I will mainly be playin my Xbox on it and dont have sky or anything, but I do have a freeview box.

has anyone seen the same price in another store?

Ive still got the little b&w Mitsubishi portable I got in 1978 as an xmas pressie, use it with an old Nokia freeview box to keep an eye on SSN or BBC News 24 when Im working in my office. Perfectly adequate for the job intended, and has given me over 30 years solid service.

Arghh, it's not full HD though :cry:

what is the quality like on these things...I had one of the first cheap LCDs and the viewing angle was pants

john54321;4662246

Arghh, it's not full HD though :cry:



its not 1080p :prop:

Just wait until next year when Panasonic release their 1080p 3D TVs and everyone realises they are going to have to upgrade their big 1080p TVs which they'd banked on lasting 5 years or so! 720p is fine for the moment unless you need a screen over 42".

a friend has got the 32in model and is really pleased with it. picture quality is excellent:thumbsup:

yeh, spotted this in cradley heath west midlands store yesterday.
can confirm its not just one store

This lcd is fine for the price, if need 1080p you'll pay money.
Only really see 1080p over 40 inchs

Wow, that's a good find. I'll give you some heat for that. Back on to the TV, I had a look at one of them last week and thought they looked a good deal for £240, so at around £180, even better! I would like to get one for my bedroom, but I'm worried that a 26 inch TV might be a big too weighty to put on top of my pine chest drawers. Does anyone else do this in their bedrooms? (I don't fancy wall mounting either.......)

I don't have this one but got one of the sainburys 26" ones posted on here recently.
They are not heavy and will easily stand ok on a set of draws. Mine's stood on a MFI chipboard set of draws so pine draws will easily handle it

hi...tryed to buy one of these...model number is lcd 26-207...an older model not stocked any more...unless any1 has seen any were..thx..

just called up the super store in Banbridge and they are still £230 up there.

ragin.

Size-wize is up to you (depending on your room size and viewing distance), but on the full hd thing, I wouldn't bother if it's mainly for Xbox use.

The reason being that virtually all xbox 360 games are natively rendered in 720p, and just scaled up to 1080p/1080i by the xbox itself. As such if you view these Xbox games on a 1080p screen, you're actually getting a worse quality picture than on a 720p screen!

Saw these in a Notts store yesterday. Was marked as clearance. There were none available but they had a new 26" Technica with slightly higher model number for £239.99 but could not see what was different from the one that was on show but had none left to sell.

Agreed, even then you've gotta be an inch from the screen to see the difference.

Must be area specific, which is unusual for Tesco. Scanned in 2 stores this afternoon in 2 counties and both were £239

Banned

I just sold one of these (lcd26-209) and they have built in freeview and a slot for pay per view events aswell. Nice looking slick lcd it was.

I agree, must be store specific - Chilwell in Notts still scans at the higher price and the Lecky dept know of no reduction. Does anyone know of a Tesco in the Derby/Notts area offering at the lower price?

When I was in the Aylesbury Tesco today I checked the discounted model and can confirm it is the LCD26-207, not the LCD26-209. However I can't see anything different between the two visually.

Was thing of buying another one of these but my other died 9 months in to having it no probs got a refund but i paid £279 for it now £239 @ tescos BAGULEY and irlam manchester in the Clearance Section Been reading of these tv not last that long 14 month and there dead no wounder the offer ya 3 or 5 year warranty so that cheep tv aint a cheep tv anymore think i will go ta richer sounds see what they have in there its worth paying the extra for a better tv thats not going ta die on ya just out of warranty..........
