Full HD screen but no Freeview HD tuner!
on 27 January 2014
I bought this model on the back of some good reviews and an excellent price but clearly made a schoolboy error; although it has a full HD screen it does NOT have a Freeview HD tuner, only standard Freeview. Therefore if you are receiving your signal via a conventional aerial you will not be able to access full HD content without a separate Freeview HD box.
I intend to get around this problem by obtaining a Youview box and it's clearly not a problem if you have Sky HD/similar or use a Blu-Ray player. Other than this deficiency it seems a decent enough TV with good picture quality and features. I found that the sound quality can be improved by tweaking the 'user defined' settings - turn everything up, particularly the lower frequencies.
The bezel is nice and thin around the screen and the TV takes up a fraction of the room of the old 28" CRT TV that it replaced. Note also that there is no horizontal or vertical adjustment for angle on the attached stand, you have to move the entire TV!.
