As A Student I'm all about saving money and i found this TV on eBay for £200 about 2 Years ago and is still an excellent TV fit for the whole family or a lowly student. This LCD television provides great picture quality whether near or far away running at 1080 on an xbox and uses 1376*768 Resolution For my PC for optimum quality. The TV comes boxed with stand so you can have it on a desk or any flat surface although it as able to be wall mounted as well which i would recommend. It comes with a YPbPr, 2 HDMI, 1 AV, 1 Scart and Build in Freeview so you plug in all of your DVD players blue ray and consoles with no trouble. The Remote that comes with it is also very good as its not big and clunky like allot of remote. A Downside with this product is it becomes very Hot if used for extended periods of time. also the ports are completely inaccessible if wall mounted. The In Build Speakers are OK for just watching TV but for a gamer or film enthusiast I would recommend a separate speaker set. The TV itself is not the thinnest but neither is it too bulky. All in all a good Cheap TV and if you dont care about branding is perfect
I was in desperate need of a new television, but could not afford one with Christmas coming up, so my partner offered to buy me one as an early Christmas present. It cost him £199 from Argos.
Once we got the television home I took it all out of the box. In the box you had the television, with the plug and lead attached. The instruction manual and also the remote control, which came with 2 AAA batteries included.
I did not set the television up for a couple of hours as they do say to leave them for a while to settle if they have been laid down, whether this is true or not I am not sure but I was not going to risk it.
The television was pretty easy to set up, I just needed to plug the scart lead in from the sky box, and also the HD lead, which does not come supplied with the television. So if you do not have one you will have to buy one seperately.
Once all the leads were plugged in I switched the television on and I tried to scan channels, now here I did get confused as it could not find any available channels. But then I went through the source button on the remote, and found HDMI1 so I clicked on that and pressed ok and there was all my sky channels.
The remote for the television is pretty easy and basic to use, and you can use it for anything to do with the television, you do not need to really touch the television. However they do have the power button and the volume controls at the side of the television, which can also be used.
The only thing I found with this television is that when you do turn it off, it does stay on standby, so you may want to switch it off at the plug when it is not in use.
The picture quality of this television is really good and everything is clear to see, obviously it is even more clearer on HD but it is still really good on normal channels and does not seem to make a difference.
The sound is also very good on this, and you do not have to have your television top a loud volume to hear it, I usually only have mine set to 20 and the most I have ever gone to is 26 and that is more than enough, when the kids have been screaming I could still hear it.
I would recommend this to buy its not too expensive its a good size, easy to set up and not too complicated to use.
