UMC 19/16 LCD TV with DVD player.
Price £129 from Macro in Aberdeen
This LCD TV comes with a 19" screen. Usually I would go for a larger screen but as this was purchased for my daughters bedroom 19" is sufficient. It also comes with built-in freeview and an integrated DVD player. The DVD player was an added bonus as she already had a seperate DVD player but at this price and with the added convienience of it all being in one system, therefore only requiring one remote, who would complain?!
This TV also features teletext and ceefax as well as having a parental lock and sleep timer.
We decided to tune the TV in first before fitting it to the wall just in case we encountered any problems.
I had a look at the user guide and found it was very clearly written with easy to follow step-by-step instructions. The TV got tuned in fairly quickly, after a few false starts and the freeview was up and running in less than an hour.
In our case we had to trail an aerial from my daughters bedroom, through the kitchen and into the livingroom to connect in to the communual aerial and even this was managed without too much disruption.
The TV was extremely light weight and we had no problems attaching it to the wall. Once it was up it looked pretty impressive considering what we payed for it.
The picture and sound are brilliant and is what you would expect from a TV twice the price of this one. If the sound is turned up extremely loud however it does sound a little bit shaky, but my daughter will certainly not be using it at this volume anyway!!
The only complaint that I would really have is the text size when flicking through the free-view channels and even the free-view menu is extremely small. My daughter doesn't have a problem reading it but even with my glasses on, I find myself peering to look at it.
The DVD is also easy to use, once I figured out where the eject button was on the remote!! My daughter actually uses the DVD a lot as she usually watches one in bed every night before she sleeps. The difference in picture quality from her old standard TV is immense. The only problem now is she doesn't want to sleep as she enjoys watching it too much!!
In conclusion I would definately recommend this TV. It is great value for money and so easy to set up. The picture quality is also astounding for the cost of the TV.
Summary: Good sound and picture quality for the price.
