Long term you will probably be better off buying a Samsung etc, energy ratings are generally much higher on these Technika TVs

I was looking at buying a Samsung or LG but it would be more than double what this Technika cost for a 55 inch. Also it says that it’s A+ rated so it can’t be that power hungry lol

I'm not voting but personally wouldn't touch any panel that doesn't support 24P

Whats that?

Whats that?

Blu-Ray frame rate.

Blu-Ray frame rate.



Indeed. It's the frame-rate used by blu-ray, US TV etc. It's also why all the voice on American TV shows are higher pitched when they are shown on Channel 4/5.

Probably the cheapest 55 inch LED set in the UK for a reason….

Got a older Technika plasma and found that it was a rebranded samsung
Presuming this is just a Samung underneath, just go instore and see if u can access the menu screen. Each manufacturer has their own style.

Well pleased with my Technika plasma and still going strong 3 years

Have a 1080p Technika 23inch in the kitchen and it said on the box Samsung panel but i can honestly say the picture quality is rubbish and thats a 23inch, this maybe cheap but for good reason the picture quality will be bad and on a set thats 55inch it will be 10x worse than the 23inch. Do yourself a favour either don't buy a set if you cant afford a decent one or pay a bit extra and get a decent quality 47inch and with no 24fps its not worth having as thats the native for blurays and other HD media, theres no smart or freeview HD or 3D either. Having a big LED with poor specs is not worth having and you will regret it everyday especially when watching movies and TV.

I've had a 37" Technika since '07 & its brilliant.

Of course it's no samsung/LG etc but you've got to be a snob to deny them their value for money!

Tesco doesn't manufacture panels, so it's likely either Samsung or LG.

would also be available for cashback from quidco/top cashback of around 2-4% as well good deal for the size

These sets are made by UMC, Well I found the manual on UMC’s UK service centre website. They probably have either a Samsung or an LG panel inside them, I would put money on Samsung though.

I'm usually fussy about tech, I'd lower my standards for this.

As a qualified electronics\tv engineer of yesteryear, i can tell you that lower price consumer electronics come with lower priced components. For instance electrolytic capacitors, these tend to be spec close to the operational voltage, they are also rated on temperature, lesser quality are usually rated at 85^ degrees. The best advice if you have to buy budget tv sets:
1. Ensure it is well ventilated.
2. Keep away from heating sources, i.e. radiators.
3. Keep out of direct sunlight (if installed near a window at this time of year, the plastic case can heat up well in excess of hand heat).
4. Run the tv from a mains anti surge plug adapter.

get them while you can because Tesco are pulling out of selling consumer electronics soon.

think they're having a tough financial year!

shame I hear you all say!

Had a a Technika in the kitchen for 3 years now.

Still going strong.

What a complete load of molluscs.

They do incredibly well from consumer electronics - it's not all about the UK market as they smash it in profitability in the rest of Europe through bulk procurement dealing with the likes of UMC and Vestel, and bulk buying at a group level to fulfil their global supply chain.

Really wish people with zero knowledge would stfu when commenting on deals like this.

20% off all technika TVs over 32" started today. this must be part of it.

Banned

Crap brand. Would be embarrassed to have one of these in my living room. Cold

£477 for a technika when you can buy a budget 50 inch Panasonic plasma or 51 inch Samsung for more or less the same sort of price and will no doubt give you a better picture. My advice avoid it. As someone said above cheap low end branded TV equals cheap internal components. Long term £477 is a lot to risk.

I have not personally viewed this TV in operation, but regardless of price, I would never buy such a sized set prior to physically seeing it in operation.
A 55" TV producing a below-acceptable picture could quite literally be one huge mistake.
Equally, a 55" TV producing an acceptable picture (or better) at this price is great.
And anybody looking to take delivery and use DSR to decide if they want to keep it is a braver person than me, or has more temporary storage space and tolerance than I do !
Think I'd be viewing one in-store prior to any commitment, assuming they are on display in Tesco stores ?

great for gaming!!! cheers!!

lmao Really wish people with zero knowledge would stfu when commenting on deals like this.

they use samsung or lg panels in every tv exactly the same as the ones they use in their tv of the same size. For all those saying they are rubbish and cheap, they probably have never even seen one let alone tried one. I have 3 in our house of different sizes and would recommend them to anyone. Its just a shame they come from tescos lol, heat added

Hmmm seems you need to brush up on YOUR knowledge.....this was stated on BBC business news yesterday...uk is where we live and they are pulling away from this sector..
Edited by: "vauxmik" 6th Jun 2013

I heard the bbc news article yesterday too when tesco manager said they were scaling some new store back 20% by cutting electricals - and the interviewer mentioned flat-screen tv's as being low margin and space consuming.

Why tell people to "shut the f... up" when you yourselves are wrong ?

i think its been coming for a while, i never see anyone down the small electrical aisle in our tesco. its different for the big tesco extra stores where theres a lot more choice and a lot more tv brands on display.

but ive been told once so id better 'stfu'. what do i and a hundred other news agencies know!!

i love the friendly banter on hukd, keeps me coming back for more.

1080p is so 2007

Before accusing people of talking molluscs you should do your homework….

"Tesco's make or break recovery in its home market looks to have been short-lived after Britain’s biggest retailer posted a worse-than-expected fall in sales, wiping more than 5 per cent off the value of shares. The supermarket giant blamed the continued hangover from the horsemeat scandal and poor demand for low margin televisions and consumer electronics, for a 1 per cent fall in underlying first quarter sales. Shares fell 18.85p to 345.6p, heaping further pressure on chief executive Phil Clarke, who has spent £1billion trying to kick-start growth in the UK. Clarke has announced drastic action, withdrawing from consumer electronics to make way for food and clothing."

Appears to be a bargain for such a big screen and Samsung inner components.
Did anyone get this TV ?

with inciteful comments like that the telly would probably rather not be in your lounge anyway so sleep easy

Don't forget 3.5% quidco ( £15.64 ) and 1% tesco clubcard points ( £4.47 ) effectively making this £426.89. Think there might even be free delivery too. I think this is a bargain for a 55" LED Full HD 100Hz screen. I've had a few Tecnika's from Tesco and they've all been reliable with good pictures. National deal so don't have to worry about the rare 'store specific' deals. LED makes it slim, light and low power consumption. Usually for the £400 mark you're looking at much smaller tellys. Haven't seen a review yet sorry. First post after years of being lazy and just benefitting from other person's postings. Love Hutukdeals and always have a look twice a day.

This shows at 589.00 on the link....
