A good price but what about quality. Anybody got links to professional reviews?

Not a bad looking TV for a cheap one but think I would try and get an extra £200 to get something a little more known

although I am a bit dubious about the make and image quality this is the cheapest fule 1080p TV I have seen. Voted HOT

Nice price, thinking about going for it just need a little more research let ya know

Bought one last week. great picture very pleased.

Sorry my mistake, i bought the Sense version also made by vistron, think its the same TV.

Well I thought that 'Sense' and 'Vistron' are just the in-house brand names used by eBuyer - and the Sense TVs are also described by them as the 'Vistron Sense'. What we need is someone to spot the design shape, button layout and/or socket layout/mouldings to spot who the OEM might be.

has a similar stand to my LG

I've got one and the picture is excellent!

Contrast ratio is 1200:1 not 800:1 as stated though

I think it's a hot deal, any brand TV will be updated in a few years~ 5 to 8 years is so long, so enough to me !!!

they do the same version with 3 HDMI ports for an extra tenner
gonna go wake up my other half and try and justify one

Trust me waking the other half isn't a good start to negotiations ;-)

notice how every product on ebuyer has 5 stars hahahaha.

also if a review is bad they dont put em on the site.

Also any bad reviews are at page 10 not page 1.

This is a very very good price, especially for 1080p.

others are twice they price. I've got a vistron brand and they are acutally quite good.

Sorry for hijackin, think I'm gettin the jist of it now!!

Thats just it though, good 1080p TVs are not twice the price any more.

You can pick em up even in Currys for 700 pounds, 42 inch Tosh or 40 inch samsungs.

Even the new range of XV Tosh TVs can be had for 700 pounds.

Thought prices endin 7 or 8 were end of line. These ran out then they got hundreds more?????

With such a low contrast ratio, which is important on a TV this size, I think it'd be much better to spend an extra hundred or couple of hundred quid on a model with a much better spec and reputation.

Because if you're willing to fork out £520, you want something that's really good and a long term investment. Not something that you feel 'you get what you pay for.'

shut up will you. this is a seriously good TV irrespective of the price. The fact that its less than £520 is the icing on the cake. I bought one for my parents last week and was frankly amazed by the picture quality. Stop putting people off by quoting contrast numbers. For the majority of people this is a wonderful buy.

The contrast ratio on the screens they send out is 1200:1, not 800:1 like they advertise.

And please don't quote some large screen TV that has a large dynamic contrast ratio.
1200:1 is fine for most people who want a cheap, but good quality, TV.

bought the 3 hdmi one on thursday evening arrived friday morning. picture is great. only problems is that for some reason it doesnt accept the output from my macbook air (havent tried it with my pc laptop) but it might just me me needing to change the output settings which i have no clue on how to do. other issue is that scart 2 apears to take s-video type feeds only as my sky box and wii come out in black and white when using that scart socket (scart 1 is fine) . not a problem if you have a scart switcher - i'll be upgrading to sky+ so not a big issue for me.

:xI bought the 32 vistron sounds good on paper. It does look good. Picture was rubbish sent two back bought a different make. Advice only buy LCD tv's if you have seen them working as they do vary and the hassle if you are not happy is not worth it. These models do not work with sky remote control's.

The contrast ratio figure on any TV is quite literally meaningless

If you're mainly buying for watching tv and want one at this size i say get a 42 inch plasma. Doesn't matter what brand it is (a cheap one will almost definately have a samsung panel anyway), trust me it'll be miles better, why bother with 1080p if you don't need it? The only drawback is it'll suck a bit more electricity, but then again you hear reports of cheap lcds sucking electricity as well.

Telling me to shut up? Wow, that's mature of you.

You're entitled to your opinion, like I'm entitled to mine, and I really don't think this is a good deal. Instead of forking out £520 for this, I'd rather get one of the much better Toshiba's that were on Play the other week for £500. A far, far better deal. In fact, there are quite a lot of good LCD TV bargains out there if you look around - much better "bargains" than this one, I think. Yes, you might have to spend a hundred pound or so more, but if you're forking out over £500 already, I'd much rather push a little further and get a much better TV. And whether it's 800:1 or 1200:1, it's still quite poor for a TV over £500.

And Jukkie, to you this is a cheap TV? £520 is cheap? I don't think so.

Couldn't agree more! You really must see them to be able to tell! Manufacturers can easily twist the truth depending on how they measure the specs.

So the contrast ratio might not be good on paper, but if it looks good it's no problem!

Exactly. I think the price for this brand is hardly cheap, why get a tv like this when you could get a much better 720 type, or pay a bit more for a better brand. It looks identical to my friends LG, and in comparison to sony,panasonic,samsung (which could be had for around same price) the plastics on the set do feel a bit cheap.

sorry for asking a silly question but can i plug this into my laptop?

If you laptop has VGA output (which it probably will) then yes! You'll just need a VGA cable.

Aren't most of those reviews for 32" and lower?


I was looking at one of these the other day, very good value for 42" 1080p TV.

Found a couple of reviews for another 42" Vistron here: avforums.com/for…941

I ended up looking at Finlux 42FLHD760 which uses a Hitachi panel, and that has better contrast ratio but it costs £650. So I decided might as well wait and spend £100 more and get a 42" 1080p Sony.
