This is a 20" Crt tv . Its age is 15 years. Had to repair it only 2 times . Picture quality is superb.Sound quality is better any LCD/LED. I would recommend it to anyone. It is undefeated even after running for 12+ hours a day.It is the best Tv I have ever had!
I own a Thomson 28VK25US widescreen TV (sorry, couldn't work out how to add a new product). I'm currently experiencing picture distortions when playing DVDs. What happens is when I play a DVD containing a scene involving rapid flashes of light e.g. explosions, lightning, etc, the picture distorts and rolls for a second but then returns back to normal. This even happens in super-slow motion! This is very annoying when watching movies containing a lot of these scenes e.g. any of the Batman movies, Star Wars and basically any type of "shoot-em-up" movie. You may be thinking that the problem lies with the DVD player or SCART lead but I've tried 4 different models of DVD player and 3 different SCART leads and they all do the same thing. I also found a chat group on the Internet where other people have been experiencing the same problem with the same model of TV. When I contacted Thomson about this they assured me that it was not a problem with this model of their TVs. I got Mastercare (Currys) to take a look at it and they took the TV away for 3 weeks. When I got it back, nothing had changed so apparently they can't fix it either. So my advice to anyone thinking about buying a Thomson TV is this: take the TV home, connect it up to your DVD Player and watch a DVD containing scenes like I described above - Batman Returns and The Phanton Mentace are particularly bad. If picture distortion happens, then return the TV immediately and get another make. If you don't plan to use a DVD player with the TV then there are no problems at all. The picture is clear and the sound is great.
Got 5 to 10 yrs back and who had heard of Thomson? Well that was then and this is now. Thomson are up there with the best. Whilst they can never probably cope with Sony there is an opportunity for them to make their mark on the market. Having recently bought one from Comet to accompany my new DVD player, (a lovely little pansonic number) both in matching silver to go with that whole silver 00's thing and thus less dust on our screens and especially on the top of them. I now sing their praises. Excellent picture, excellent sprung door unit, tasteful design, good quality sound through the ranges until you hit the bass. Now if there is anything to moan about it has to be the bass. It then starts to sound like an earth tremor from the San Andreas fault. If they could sort this out then it would be an absolute superb TV. My own comfort is that I will be acquiring a speaker system to compensate for this lack of bass. Overall a quality TV with the picture its best feature.
