      A good buy if you can pick one up for £100 or less

      I have owned this TV for many years, well my family has, but only recently has it come into the deep realms of my bedroom setup. My previous TV was a small little number, almost impossible to play any form of computer game on - you had to sit almost next to the screen just to read the text, so this is a definate upgrade.

      The first thing that hits you about the Phillips 25PV808 is its size. It is big! The screen is not so huge, only 25", but it goes back about that far too - a great deal of alot heavier than your more modern LCD TV's. But, of course TV's arent really a portable device, so the weight issue only comes up when moving.

      The next feature which separates it from the rest is its in built VHS player, a feature that has been replaced by the DVD player in recent years, yet I still find it to be a great addition. You can buy VHS for about 3 for £1 in most charity shops nowadays - with videos going up to about 2005, so you can get all the classic films and many modern ones for dirt cheap. I purchased around 30 brilliant VHS films for the price of a new DVD, including Platoon, The Godfather, the Star Wars and Lord of the Rings Trilogies etc. Worth a go.

      Downsides perhaps include its lack of HD, obviously due to its age, but this should not be held against it, as it still has the ability to play the new Xbox 360 and PS3 machines - the only major flaw being that it cuts off a small section of the left side of the screen when playing my Xbox, a problem I have yet to find a fix for.
