We are currently looking for a new widescreen television but we feel a little bit lost with all the technology around these days. Should we have Nicam or Dolby ProLogic? Should we go for a digital television? Should we go for a big name or are the others just as good? As you can see we havent got a clue what we want so we need help! We bought a copy of What Video and Tv magazine and began to read and see if it would help us and our dilema! The magazine cover a wide range of topics around the world of TV's, videos and DVD's. It is seperated out into different sections: News and Views, Features, Advice, Competitions, Screening and Testing DVD's, Televisions, VCR's, Home Cinema Equipment, Camcorders and Accessories. The product testing is in detail and explains good and bad points of the featured models. If your are a bit like me and it looks like too much information then it is condensed down in the specifications. This also comes into its own when you want to compare products as it makes it very easy to do so. On initial reading it may seem that there are just too many adverts in this magazine but on closer inspection you might be in for a nice suprise. These are companies that offer an internet or mail order service and these really are worth checking out. Most of the TV's we have looked out are about £100 cheaper from these companies than from the likes of Comet and Currys. This isnt the sort of magazine that you would buy on a regular basis but if you are looking for a new TV and want great impartial advice, its certianly worth a look and dont forget to compare prices with these adverts to high street stores.....I think you will be pleasantly suprised!
Firstly I saw that this magazine is listed in the TV listings section by 'dooyoo'. I don't know why they've done that as this magazine has no TV listings! Or maybe this magazine is also under a different listing. Anyhow, What Video & TV reviews electrical entertainmant equipment such as TV's, VCR's, camcorders, DVD players as well as discs and also home cinema amplifers and decoders. It curretnly sells at £3:25p. You'll also find a free mini magazine in Comet stores used to help customers. There's a news and views section where you can be updated on the latest in new equipment. You've also got your features on particular products, companies or news (which is surprisngly interesting at times). There are a few competitions to enter too. You then of course have the reviews on the latest equipment and there's nicely detailed a buyers guide at the back of the magazine listing all the equipment they've reviewed. A nice touch is a section known as 'video clinic' where you can write in for advice, or anyone having problems with any of thier home entertainment gear can receive help. Not that I've ever written in myself but sometimes it's quite funny reading the problems people have. Also those that write in do receive expert help most of the time! The reviews are well written and very well laid out. Each product is rated by it's different aspects. So a DVD player is marked on it's picture, sound, ease of use...etc. The reviews are sometimes rather in-depth and you could find yourself reading more then you wanted to know! I don't really buy this magazine very often. I've only brought it a few times when wanting to buy a new TV and VCR. I'm also looking for a DVD player so I recently brought it again. So basically if you're looking to buy some new home cinema equipment then you could just check 'dooyoo'! But if they don't have what yo
u're looking for then this magazine might be worth a look. Similar magazines to check up on include Home Cinema and Home Entertainment.
