I usually avoid Bush products following bad experiences in the past. However, for the price of this 40" 3D TV, I thought I would give Bush another chance. I am glad I did.
3D TVs, although they are going down in price, are still relatively expensive in relation to non-3D models. However, this TV competes very well. Many of you may be thinking that the reason of the low price could be poor quality, although you would be wrong. The TV produces excellent picture quality - the colours are vibrant and the image clear.
Now I am not much of a sound person, I am pretty happy with almost all speakers as I can not tell much of a difference. However, after being so used to my old TV and its average (or maybe poor) speakers, I could really tell a difference with this TV, the sound was loud and clear.
One disadvantage I found is that if you lose the remote then I would wish you luck in switching it off as there is no power button on the TV itself.

I was after a decent large LCD television, as the 32 inch I had just didn't fill the room as well as it had previously. It's irritating when technology advances and things get bigger for cheaper, it's great, but also annoying. In the end, after looking round a few of the top brands like Toshiba, Sony, Panasonic, LG, and some of the cheap brands like Technika, Digihome and Logik, I settled for the average - Bush. Bush occupies the middle ground on price and quality, something I was content with. They also produce large size televisions with full HD capability and all the features of the better brands.
I picked up my Bush 40 inch Full HD 1080p Freeview LCD TV for £279.99 from Argos.co.uk and have been happy with the purchase ever since. The 50 Hz TV boasts an in-built freeview tuner complete with guide, and a 1920 x 1080 resolution display with excellent contrast and brightness settings. The sound isn't too great and can come across as quite tinny and treble-heavy. You have the option of connecting up the TV to some external speakers, a hi-fi set, anything with the required auxiliary cabling. Below is listed the sockets this TV has on its rear panels.
- 2 HDMI sockets.
- 1 SCART socket.
- Component video.
- Headphone socket.
- AV socket (this one's located on the side).
The HD looks great, connected to my Tivo box, HD comes across clear and crisp at the full 1080p Setting. The Xbox 360 is also fantastic, bringing through the bright colours of the game with excellent responsiveness. The main fault of the TV is its guide / freeview interface which seems outdated and awkward to negotiate. The controller is easy to use and very self-explanatory , its black, the back sometimes comes lose though and I think I'm going to end up having to tape it shut.
I'm happy with this Full HD TV from Bush - the average. They've produced a device matching in quality of the better brands, besides sound, but for a considerably lower price - seeing as you can pay in excess of £400 for similar sized Samsung and LG products. They may look better, but look beyond the slick body and they're very much the same design. I have had no reliability issues with the Bush 40 inch either, and home to keep the TV long into the future. Highly recommended.

Originally we bought a 52 " LCD TV second hand from a local news paper advert, we got the TV only to find it had greater problems than the buyer stated when we bought it. The TV was a write off we contacted bright house and got a Bush 3D 40 " LCD TV from them.
The size is perfect for our living room and the 3D is just awesome with the glasses! The full HD 1080p is top quality with 4 HDMI ports and 2 USB ports this means you can use your USB devices with the TV, great for viewing your holiday pictures on the large screen.
The sound is top notch- Dual layer. 71 channel audio output. Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, DTS and Dolby True HD decoding, Also with an Ethernet port.
The Bush 3D 40 " LCD TV is a top buy if you want excellent picture and sound quality. None of this comes at a low price tag though.
