Not great. Not good

Disadvantages: Expensive, buttons in awkward place
I bought this 16'' TV as my first television. I was very excited as I queued up in Argos and paid the £90. I loved setting it up in my room and when Mary Poppins sprung on the TV as I first put it on, I felt very lucky. Then I started to realise this wasn't a purchase to be particularly grateful for.
I did enjoy having a TV in my room, don't get me wrong. However, I should have gone for a different one. If this cost a little less, then I would feel so bitter about it. But it was £90 and it was NOT worth the money. Looking around other shops for TV's has made me realise what a mistake I made. Not only could I have found a much better deal on a larger screen but I could have got a DVD player TV for the same price.
The TV itself isn't horrendous but it's not great. The picture is pretty average for one this size. The sound is perfect but I can't say vie had much trouble hearing things through it. Playing the Xbox on it however, is pretty dreadful. Whether this is more to do with the Xbox I don't know but when there is writing on the screen, it's near impossible to read it.
The buttons are in a pretty awkward place around the size and tucked away. I know this makes it look more attractive but I would have preferred better access. The button tops have also fallen off which makes it even more difficult to get at
Overall, it's not a great TV. It's not the worst but there are certainly better ones out there for a much better price!
