    Recently bought a 32" Loewe Aventos (100Hz, PIP with 2 tuners) and Loewe Xelos DVD player for £849 from a branch of Tamworth Co-op . This was an excellent deal as the TV has had excellent reviews at rrp of £1150 and the cheapest price I found on the net for JUST the TV was about £950-£1000. The DVD was approx £250-£350 when available
    Very pleased with them, the sound and picture are excellent and once you've had Picture In Picture you'll wonder how you ever managed without it. Oh, and the identical remote controls are probably the best around and seem to work at all angles in my room apart from pointing at the curtains. They are very user friendly (you shouldn't even need the instruction books to set most things up), with 4 programmable hot keys, and also work virtually every function of my Panasonic VCR, which was a bonus. Also the DVD can receive it's commands via the TV so could be hidden away if req'd
    Loewe products carry 2yrs warranty that shouldn't be needed as I read (after I bought mine) that the TV retail trade voted them the most reliable TV's around
    The engineer who installed mine said that his branch had only sold one set. That is probably because most people haven't heard of them and go in looking for the usual brands that they know
    Only niggles I have are that the DVD is an older model that doesn't play JPEGs
    and Loewe offer their sets in black or silver but the Co-op only had silver
    but these are very minor points
    :) :) :) :) :)

    I checked other Co-ops in Leics and when I went to Skeggy for a long weekend (believe me it felt long ) and neither of them dealt with Loewe . So Dixons is Dixons, Currys is Currys, but the Co-op ain't always the Co-op
