    Has anyone had a Technika TV before?

    As title says, have you ever owned or had experience of a Technika TV?

    We have been looking at this one direct.tesco.com/q/R…spx
    which seems quite a good deal for £550 but usually go for a Goodmans.

    Any tips/advice please, as choosing a TV is just a nightmare. We basically want a 1080p 2 x Scarts and 2 x HDMI's. It would be getting a lot of usage, (being on for probably 16 hours a day!) and delivery preferable.

    I'd seriously consider this one - gets very good reviews on the site and on the AV forum.

    I've owned a Technika TV for a few years now, just used in bedroom but watched very often and had no problems whatsoever.

    Get technikas returned all the time - dodgy screens - broken screens - bad pictures basically
    Its like the budget tv brand

    Technika is a badge, not a brand.

    Im afraid I have to agree, well I had one and the nicam sound sounded like speakers from a monitor(that being said they were monitor sized ones) and sounded worse than my old mono tv.

    Pic quality I wouldnt say was terrible, as it outperformed my old Goodmans hdtv(the Technika was a HDTV too) but even for my 360 was no better on component than RGB on my old CRT, again not terrible.

    The pic on component was sharp but the colours seemed far too eye hurting, they were really bright, just imagine a old tv with its colour button set really high.

    Not a terrible tv by any means but I wouldnt buy it unless it was cheap.

    Also NEVER go for a Goodmans, I had one last year and it wasnt worth the price, the speakers rattled if put about about 1/10 of maximum the HD pic was nice, but SD looked like someone had put a piece of plastic over the screen dulling the colours, and even dvd's looked dull through component.

    Really depends on how much you are spending and what its gonna be used for, if its for a tv which is just for movies and you can get a Goodmans cheap then do go for it, but if you see a Samsung/Toshiba or whatever for slightly more go for that as the picture is far better.

    Just bought two 19" HDTV with freeview for £179.97 from Tesco for the bedrooms, really easy to set up, great picture, does exactly what it says on the tin. Not sure I would go for a Technika as main TV though, would probably opt for more well known name if spending pots of money

    iv had a technike ty for a couple of years and neva had any trouble with it.. i wud say go for it at that price :thumbsup:
