“ Large LCD television, middle ground on price and quality, from a fairly well-known and realiable brand. 4 HDMI ports and 2 USB ports, great for connecting your camera to view pictures on it. „
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.
After a good few years of having a basic television, we decided that it was finally time for an upgrade. There are so many fantastic offers on widescreen TVs at the moment, so it is the perfect time to buy. I wasn't really actively looking for a television until I came across this offer from Argos on this Bush 40 inch Full HD TV. I have had a few TVs from Bush and so I know they are a really good brand and definitely worth buying. The deal took a lot off the RRP and so I splashed out on this television and I am happy so far.
This TV is black in colour like most TVs, it has the Bush logo on the front and it comes with a tabletop stand which is great. The dimensions of this TV are H61.3, W97, D9.9cm and the weight of it is 15.1kg with the stand. It comes complete with a remote control also and this requires 2 x AAA batteries. The TV isn't the slimmest but it is quite slender in shape and doesn't look too bulky in my living room. The size is just perfect at 40inches, any bigger would be too much but considering what we had, this is adequate.

This TV is easy to install which is what I liked about it, it literally was a case of plug in and play and it was up and running. There was an install button and then it scanned for all Freeview channels, once the scan was complete the TV was set up and ready to go. Now, the first thing to comment on is the EPG this is the guide where you find out what is on like a TV guide, it is quite overwhelming as it shows so much rather than splitting the screen, it does have a lot going on and I'd prefer a more simplistic layout but it works.
The TV comes with a headphone socket, 1 SCART socket and 2 HDMI socket. It also has a video socket and AV socket. In terms of the sound it comes with NICAM stereo sound system, I will say the sound on this TV is great, the volume can go really quite high so you don't need to turn it right up to the top as it has a good balance. It is a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution and it is so sharp that you can see a lot of detail and the picture looks really concise. It isn't the most crystal clear of pictures but for me it is an improvement.
The brightness is 430cd/m2 and it can be easily adjusted by using the remote control as can many things. The remote control is great, all buttons are very clearly titled and you can use it easily and the signal is clear. The remote control batteries should last you a good while and you have your teletext buttons on here also. This television is suitable for wall mounting if you wish to do so but I prefer it being on a table as I don't want to mount my TV to the wall, but atleast there is an option.
The energy efficiency rating on this is Energy efficiency rating: D. I find the only problem with this TV is that there is no power off button, on the remote there is but it leaves the TV on standby mode which to me still feels like it is on. To turn it off fully with no lights showing, you literally have to unplug it each time which can be quite annoying. The website recommend the annual power usage of this TV is 187kWh. I feel for the size of the TV it really is ideal and it has all necessary features I'd want without being too much.
This is a great television if you want a decent sized widescreen TV. It has a good picture and good sound and it really does make viewing TV just that bit better and I am pleased with the display. I don't use a lot of the features on it but the menu is easy to use if you want to adjust certain things and I like that it isn't too complex to work out. If you need a new TV for any room in the house, this is worth checking out. Bush are a good brand for TVs and I will continue to recommend them.
This TV is currently on offer at Argos for £299.99 instead of the RRP of £349.99 which is quite a decent saving on a model like this.
