Vistron DB26-BD 26" LCD TV Freeview @ Ebuyer - £249.99 delivered

Found 30th Mar 2008
This is cheaper than the Vistron Sense 26" TV that was posted recently.

Just to note, I bought the Sense 26" a couple of weeks ago, and it was supposed to have 800:1 contrast and 450cd/m2 brightness, HOWEVER, when it arrived it had 1200:1 contrast and 600cd/m2 brightness, which was a pleasant surprise.
I found out this is because Vistron gradually improve thier models without changing the product number, so the specs in the description are the original specs without any later improvements. (unlike othe companies who will create a new TV with a new model number and add a few pounds to the price every time they add slight improvements).

As a matter of interest, the screen I got was very good quality with a crisp picture.

Anyway, enough of me blabbering, here's the details -

The Vistron 26" LCD TV comes with integrated freeview, giving you access to hundreds of more channels and will support High Definition pictures. For those who like gaming the High definition picture will show off any game you decide to throw at it. You can even connect this tv to your PC with the VGA connection.

Making this TV the perfect solution for those who need everything built in..

I got one of these on request for my brother in law a few weeks back. Gotta say i was pleasantly suprised at the pic quality - good viewing angles and clear crisp pic. The only letdown was the casing which seem quite cheap and plasticy. But saying that he was dead chuffed with it and its now up and running every day in kitchen. Personally i would pay that little bit extra if you can find a good bargin (like the asda panny recently or the argos sony both at £350). However peeps on a budget around the 250 mark cant go wrong... much better pic that the wharfdales and acoustic solutions out there at this price.…HA7

For an extra £9 you can get the wall bracket. Aways worth looking at the bundle deals on Ebuyer.

I forgot to mention that bit.
Although I haven't seen the Wharfdale screens much (wouldn't want to really), the Vistron's are a lot better than the 2 Acoustic Solutions screens I've bought recently (yes, I buy a lot of TV's, lol).
