Grundig Cinemo 40


It's not the highest quality set we've seen, but it comes close to the top in value for money.

Easy to set up with built-in digital tuner ; Vivid colours ; Competitively priced

Last season's styling ; Some performance issues

Note: Grundig also offers the Cinemo model in two other sizes: 32-inch (2 x 15 watt speakers -- RRP AU$1,699) and 46-inch (2x25 watt speakers AU$3,999).

Grundig Cinemo 40


My 32" HD LCD started freezing the picture and then displaying large solid colour bands after only 5 months. But the real problems started when I attempted to obtain any sort of customer service from Grundig Australia, they apparently farm-out their...

Nice looking, good ticket price, good picture

high freq of faults, NO CUSTOMER SERVICE or SUPPORT

Grundig Cinemo 40


I would not touch anything distributed by Grundig Australia again, our 42" plasma has spent over 4 months in the repair shop this year alone and it is only the beginning of October. They will not return telephone calls, they keep sending broken parts...

Good when it works

Poor support and back up, you'll only have a TV half of the time

I have been excitedly awaiting a 3200 - been advised the picture is a lot sharper... Anyway I prefer last years look, I think it looks great. But the wait has been excruciating and it hasn't ended - I have been assured that mine will arrive next week....

Looks great (matches my Grundig OvationII nicely) - and PRICE, I managed to get a 3200 for $1300. 3 year warranty looks good on the surface

When will they arrive
