Surely it must be defective?
on 4 December 2012
I bought this TV for £133 on Amazon's Black Friday promotion but had it been just £33 it would still not have been worth it. It has excellent connectivity with 3 HDMI connections, a VGA connection, a SCART connection and sound inputs and outputs however that is the only good point about it. The picture is very poor indeed, with colours that manage to be both unrealistic and blurry at the same time. On moving objects there is noticeable motion blurring and when using the computer input the resultant image is so unsharp as to be almost unusable. Yet all of these aren't the worst thing about it, that accolade is reserved for the sound. Yes, other people have commented on how bad it is but however bad you might expect it to be, it will be worse than you think possible.
As an example in our pretty 'cosy' sitting room (with no other noise at all) and with the volume on the TV turned up to the absolute maximum it was still impossible to hear a football commentary clearly. It is difficult to describe the sound since I have never heard anything like it before. It was muffled, tinny and as fuzzy as the picture.
I'm very surprised indeed that any manufacturer would allow such a flawed and defective product to be sold and Amazon to still be selling it. It is all packed up and awaiting collection.
