Not sure who manufactures the panel on these, but either way this seems a great price for a 46" LED Smart TV.

This looks very stylish with a a bezel less than a centimetre thick.

Nearly bought this in white a little while back but couldnt find any reviews. Even emailed a couple of previous buyers on ebay - they said it was good, but still went for the Sammy, albeit a smaller screen.

Apparently TCL manufacture the panels for these, according to a friend who's an ex-buyer for Tesco.

Thomson are a French electronics group who manufacture a wide range of products from miltimedia to wepons guidance systems and other battle field technology.
They bought the domestic products side of the Thorn group when they were sold off, so these TV's possibly have some "Ferguson" DNA, ..........not sure that's good or bad! X)

Power on and full speed ahead I plunge into the flood of pictures. Quick search an HD program and his eyes have something special? Forget it! An incredulous expression pervades my face. Is about the HDMI cable loose? No, it's stuck in place and has otherwise no damage. It was so in my actual TV wiring. Maybe it's the transmitter? Switch quickly and ... duh, also does not look better. That can not be true. If your TV fail when image? And at a price of 700 euros, but where there are similar devices at Cyberport to have for less than 600 Euros?

Quickly again checked the Dreambox settings and also the mode of the TV set. No, it will and will not get better. Too bad. Of a full-HD picture I can not vorschwärmen you excited because my eyes have seen better. Even in other living rooms and not just in the Cyberport stores or major retail markets. Even considering the price range of the device you can not compromise on here, because the picture is not really a treat for the eyes. Since you can not see the face of shaky goalie in a penalty shootout. Or he looks pained, although he would be? Well, anyway, the image of the Thomson is not a picture that is the generation of 2012, the Full HD TVs justice. If you look at the competition ...

Thomson setup a joint venture with TCL, a Chinese company a little while back so there's no Ferguson DNA in there (Thomson bought Ferguson way back in 1987 and Ferguson designed products soon stopped thereafter) TCL appear to make the products and use Thomson's names (Thomson, RCA etc)

We bought a 50 inch 3d Smart THOMSON in January 2013 from Auchan, we were going to buy a Samsung but saw the Thomson on offer for only 799e BIG MISTAKE!

The television did not pair with our Sony Bluray player, we dismissed this as we do not watch many films. In January of this year we treated ourselves to a 3d player. The first film we watched played half way then went blank. We contacted Thomson that advised us the TV needed an update. It still had the same problem. We were asked to take the TV back to Auchan. We did and the same happened. Off to Auchan again! Back came the TV, same problem. It would appear that there was a compatability problem with the 3d player (Even though we were told it would work by their sales staff).

Thomson then said they had the problem before. We needed to return the TV via courier to there Paris depot for an updated piece of hardware!

They rang and emailed us on the Tuesday to say the TV was repaired and would be with us by the Thursday latest Friday. Both days came and went, the Saturday as well...After waiting in 3 days it eventually arrived, no apology.

Hooray it worked!

Back to the TV:

Everytime you play a film, the sound is out of sync, you have to adjust the settings every time to sync up.

The wifi dongle is not built in, it attaches behind the TV in a USB, you have to enter your wifi code everytime you use it.....

Unlike all other makes of TV I have seen since, the Thomson does not have a scart socket, you are supplied an adapter, wich is very fiddly.

The picture quality is not the best, Blu rays tend to 'drag' when there is movement on the screen.

The aftersales service is appalling...........
