Value for money


Reserved the TV online for pickup at the store saving delivery costs. It was on offer so saved £50.

Lovely budget TV


Great picture quality and slick looking TV. Only drawback is sound quality and only once scart connection. But if you're using HD equipment with it, it has two HDMI connections so scart doesn't matter. Great for movies, sport and online gaming.

Sleek little number!


Bought this television from ASDA for a whopping £299. I was very pleased with this because I had been looking at the same television the week before at £500 and decided to wait and see what else I could find. Picture Quality; Brilliant. I can definate ...

Good picture, Good sound, Price

Black gloss attracts dust! but that's just me being lazy :)
