Technika 32 inch HD Ready
Advantages: Great Value for money
Disadvantages: Over sensitive buttons, only one Scart port
The Technika 32 inch widescreen LCD, HD ready TV, as with all Technika product is only available in through Tesco LTD. I have previously brought other Technika products and I haven't had any problems with them so had no concerns when choosing a TV made by Technika.
This TV is a stylish Black shiny exterior, which wouldn't too out of place in any modern home. The TV is HD ready and also has inbuilt free view. I don't know how easy it is for the TV to be tuned as I have sky so I have never used the free view.
I have found out that even if your TV is HD ready the picture will only be HD if the receiver (e.g. Sky) is HD.
This TV has 720p resolution with 50Hz picture frequency, I have no idea what this means, so did not consider this when choosing which TV to buy. However, I have notice a marked improvement on the picture quality in comparison to my previous TV.
This TV has really great sound, apparently due to the NICAM stereo, there is also the the three pinned connections, (yellow, white and red) at the back to allow the user to play music and gaming consoles through it.
There is one Scart socket in the back/ side, which in hind sight I may have chosen on with two, as it is a bit of a pain having to change the scart leads over when I want to watch a DVD or when I want to use my Sky box. I suppose the theory is that as it has free view built in it doesn't necessarily need the extra scart socket.
The TV can be controlled using the 'invisible' side controls, these are volume, channel and a button which changes the channel from TV to AV and back.
The TV comes with a stand, which is easily screwed on. Tesco, and I believe, most places do wall mounts. Each TV has a number on the back which is needed when purchasing a wall mount bracket.
I have had this TV for 1 year now and haven't had any real problems with it. I have got problems with linking my Sky remote control to the TV, but this is due to Sky not having the TV in their database and not anything to do with the TV itself.
The downside of this TV is the 'invisible' side controls, although very stylish and well hidden i find, if anyone goes near the side of the tv it registers and changes to AV, which doesn't cause a major problem but it does cause annoyance.
On the whole, this is a good TV, good value for money, I paid £299, which for a good, nice looking, easy to use TV is good.
I am not someone who has to have the latest technology so I am happy with this TV, to be honest, I don't know what more I could expect from a TV.
Summary: Great value for money and easy to use
