Looking around for a cheap LCD or Plasma TV took time and patience.I needed a big TV for livingroom and a smaller TV for upstairs bedroom.As luck would have it some bankrupt stock from a TV store appeared at my local auction house.My main target was a Panasonic Viera 37" LCD TV and if I bought the first one for a good price I fancied a smart 23" Sony Bravia LCD TV.
That was about 18 months ago,prices for the Sony were expensive for a 23" at around £500 or so and I managed to walk away with mine for about £180! It was an as new display model,no warranty but it looked fine and everyhting works.
Some cheap LCD TV can not be viewed from the side or below,the picture is terrible but with the Bravia it great from any angle,hih resolution HD ready,lots of features we do not use but may be useful such as Virtual Dolby surround sound,HD3D sound,HDMI point,PC point,2 scart points with smart link and has extra speaker points for the surround sound Cinema set up.
A great piece of kit,dare I say its a bit sharper and better quaity than the big Panasonic Viera.Its slim,lightweight and easy to carry,a real portable TV.It was easy to set up,even without instructions as it was bankrupt stock after all,good job as I am not great with this kind of thing and needs to be idiot proof for me.If I can't get it to work in 5 minutes I get irritated an bored very quickly so setting this up using the handset was a doddle.
I recommend this TV without hesitation!
I hope you found this review of use and hope you will take the time to rate it,much appreciated.I have posted other reviews about this and other items of interest on this website and the Ciao website,please take a look,many thanks!
i recently got this t.v. and have had a about 3 days, the freeview picture is very good consindering it is in standard defintion. i ahve connnected the ps3 to the t.v. with a hdmi cable and the image is amazing, it supports up to 1080i which is very good for a small t.v., but when i say small it is actually a very generous size and great for films, gaming, soaps etc. this t.v. shines the most with anything that involves colour, animation and cartoons look amazing and very vivid,. the t.v. has many ports so it is very flexible and offer many options for the buyer. The sound is way better than the samsung t.v.'s, it doesn't sound tinny and cheap, sony is the cream of the crop for sound as you know.
this t.v. is perfect for a bedroom and also a samll lounge. i am so glad i bought this.
