Good Picture, Below Par Sound but Excellent Value
on 20 September 2013
I bought this TV to replace a 10 year old 16 inch TV set and I can't really complain but I will warn people about the few and fairly minor setbacks for this set. First, the picture is very good, if looking straight on at the screen and the picture goes if you move your angle of vision slightly; second, the picture needs some playing with to get the colour right and needs tinkering with changing from TV to something like an Xbox; thirdly, the sound is below par and sounds unnatural compared to better speakers on other sets, also, like the picture, needs tinkering when changing from movies; TV; and gaming on Xbox, so I'd recommend a good pair of headphones or extra speakers if you really want proper sound quality. Also, a minor point is the power usage, on Amazon it was in the B class of power usage and the paperwork that came in the box said that it's class A and there is a discrepancy between the information label on the back of the TV and the paperwork included; so this needs to be clarified by the manufacturer. The last point in the negative column is that the power cable could be longer because it could be a problem for some people whose choice of placement could be affected by this.
The plus is the price, a very good price for such a TV set, about £110 without inbuilt DVD player and about £115 with an inbuilt region free DVD player. Also, it's incredibly lightweight. It's very quick and easy to set up and only takes about 5 minutes to put together and to get up and running. It has more that enough sockets in the back, like a SCART socket, 2 HDMI ports, USB ports, and the ability to connect to a computer and monitor if desired.
It's worth the money that I paid, £115 at the time in September 2013, it was super quick delivery but looking back I would reconsider and look at other TVs within the same price range and it gains a star for it's price but loses a star for it's below par sound and screen that can only really be viewed from looking straight at it.
