How much should i pay (Tv)

    Hi All.

    Its just my luck that in the last 2 days, my sat nav, and telly have packed up!
    Sat Nav is being dealt with under warranty.

    Now its Tv time!

    I cant really afford much, but, it seems for £50ish, i can get a 28" flat screen widescreen tv with a stand. (Ebay!)

    Now, just wondering which make to choose.

    Been offered a lovely looking 28" Philips one for £45 with a stand.
    Just not sure what to do lol!

    What are peoples expierences of Telly makes, as theres quite a few different makes im watching - to name a few - Philips, Toshiba (What i have now, which has just packed up), Sony, Sharp, Goodmans etc.

    Thanks in advance!

    Thanks in advance!


    We wouldnt buy any phillips product as we have had nothing but problems with numerous phillips products. Doubt we would even take it if they were giving them away

    Had problems with shavers, tvs, dvds etc, now we steer clear.

    Panasonic is the best make IMO, but other makes such as sony are also good

    First telly ive been offered at a buy it now price, thats all, as im managing on a small portable atm, lol!

    Ive always thought Toshiba were good, but my telly has just packed up, and it was only 3 if that.
    Also, my laptop is Toshiba, and is only JUST over one, now it needs a new battery (it wasnt a cheap laptop either :mad: )

    Would like a few more peoples opinions on tellys before i start bidding/buying!

    Thanks again

    Our phillips stuff hasnt even lasted that long!

    Panasonic is more expensive, but worth it in the long run

    hey josh, how you doing

    Well, ill give it a go, but id really like a flatscreen lol, and i doubt anyone will put one on there!

    So, what brands would people recommend?

    just look on ebay and limit it to within 10 miles of your postcode. should be able to get a Sony / Panny 32" TV for about £30-£40.

    Well, i managed to snag what i class as a bargain!

    I got a 21" normal tv, which was only 4 miles away, which was £10!!! Doesnt have a remote, but, it works fine with freeview.

    Didnt expect to win it tbh, as i really want a flatscreen/widescreen tv, but its worked out well.
    Im going to hopefully get a 28" flat/widescreen with a stand for £45 this weekend, and put this one ive just bought in my bedroom (previously had a 14" one in there) and pass my old bedroom telly onto my little boy - so were all happy!

    Good thing is now i have this bargain telly, i can hold out for a really nice telly, and not just the first which comes along.

    The telly ive got my eye on is a philips.
    Would like a few more peoples opionions on Telly brands, but no-one seems to want to reply :geek:
