    why dont u get the orion one from currys, it doesnt have freeview but its had good reviews.
    theres a thread about it somewhere.
    theres also a bush one for 399 at argos, not heard much about it but i saw one in tescos with the 360 on it and it looked good, as for tv viewing, i havent seen it yet.

    But, this isn't the 47", this is a different set.


    Looks good value to me, 3 year warranty included.. DTT Tuner, 2 HDMI Sockets...difficult to match that at this price level..

    there is a maket for cheap hd sets as well as premium sets. The op stated this was fro his 360 and kids. Seems a decent buy at that price under those circumstances. you should still check if it has component as youd need that for the 360, and a dedicated vga input would be nice. Right now there are plenty of £399 hd ready sets in tesco, argos woollies and online retailers. This one appears to have more going for it in terms of warranty and extra hdmi.

    Personally i have an old but expensive phillips set in the main room (due for 1080p upgrade soon) and a cheap argos hd set (£380 at the time) for my parents and there very happy with theirs. the choice is snap one up assuming they'll sell out or be patient wait for afew opinions to come thru but risk missing the bargain.

    Well you must be blind if you havn't noticed negative comments about every brand of TV ever produced and sold in the UK on this forum.

    This is still excellent value for money, and Aldi has a 28 day returns policy, if it doesn't meet the customers requirements, more than can be said about the majority of retailers on here.

    It's not even that cheap tbh.

    Hannspree 32" is much cheaper and has a lot of good feedback on here.

    But, the Hannspree doesn't have built in Freeview, nor a 3 year warranty, also has some Neg comments, as do all LCD TV's.

    Fair comment, Im sure the following questions will be on this thread soon

    1) Which Aldi has any left in stock?


    2 ) Mines packed up / picture awful, build quality not very good / taking mine back

    3) manager of Aldi wont refund

    4) Months later..... ( Maybe by the time it gets sorted, would have had more money to spend on a better brand)

    Cmon people, would you trust Tevion or other brand from Aldi?

    Well I'll just wait on the sidelines and wait to say I told you so..:boring:

    I am now on my second Medion PC from Aldi, neither have had a single problem, my first one is now 6 years old.

    I have no end of Tevion stuff, again never once have I had a problem with any of them.

    Too many " Badge Snobs " on this forum.:boring:

    Its not about being badge snobs its about members helping each other out with good advice.

    Of course there are going to be negative comments for each model - however if you get the proportion of negatives you will see there were a lot of negatives for the Aldi and many have been sent back.

    I've had 2 medion pcs too and they were good value for money and reliable. But when it comes to the LCDs they are selling it could be a different story.

    I look forward to reading reports on this LCD.:D

    I never said anything about PC's. Even I'd buy a pc/ kettle/iron /mp3 player from Aldi, just would not purchase a LCD from them. As for the comment about badge snobs, people trust certain well know brands, plus the company is less likely to go belly up. Relsys anyone???:rolleyes:
    Gald your happy with your Tevion stuff, peoples idea of quality is different. Going back on the LCD stuff, I never liked the look of the Tosh 42WLT66, but people are happy with it...
    Be interested to know what make of car you drive...

    You can buy a better specced (and possibly more recognisable brand) AOC or Hannspree for similar or less money.

    What? It is HD ready, it goes up to 1080i. 1080p is not a requirement of a HD ready TV set.

    as a previous owner of 2 aldi lcd tv's id stay well clear of them,they may seem cheap and feature packed but they never perform as well as a mainstream lcd manufacturer say samsung toshiba sony and the likes.

    problems ive encountered include non perfect panels/dead or stuck pixels/poor image processing/major backlight issues, iffy build quality and lastly aldi have a new refund policy which is only valid for 30 days after which you will be forced to deal with tevion support which is rubbish.I could go on but tbh ive given enough of my personal experiences for you to make ur own minds up.:thumbsdow

    I have a Hannspree myself, but there is far more equity in the Aldi brand than "Hannspree" or "AOC". Lets be honest, - only one of those brands is likely to exist in 10 years time, let alone 20!

    I am no Badge snob but some of the Medion/Tevion stuff from Aldi is total crap, some of the stuff is ok for the price you pay.

    But you get what you pay for at the end of the day.

    P.S i have had 3 Media PC's all have had defects......

    But my Tevion digital camera is still working great after 2 years :thumbsup:, then again its just a rebadged Toshiba ;).

    my father is thinking about one of the aldi tv's.

    all he wants it for is just basic tv watching, no dvd player or anything.

    he also likes the fact it has 3 years warranty.

    any more views on this tv?

    thanks gav

    You are correct, I am unable to provide a link because I have chosen the wrong word to describe their differences. The ALDI set certainly is better "specified". I am looking for one of these right now and had narrowed it down to the two I mentioned after spending three months looking at the sets myself in the flesh.

    The AOC in particular with a 6.5 second refresh rate seems incredibly well liked and the image is very good. The Haanspree also is highly regarded but I only ever hear poor things about TEVION esp when things go wrong. Their best feature seems to be that they are cheap and thats where I should have based my arguement as both the AOC and Haanspree can be had quite a bit cheaper than the TEVION.

    I apologise to anyone who may have been misled by my slip of the tongue although the AOC for example seems to have a better viewing angle, higher contrast ratio, higher power speakers, pip and pop

    But you are not comparing like with like, an AOC with built in Digital ( Freeview ) is actually about the same price as the Tevion, but it has only 2 years warranty and only one HDMI Socket, oh and of course delivery charges on top.

    At least you had the decency to apologise for misleading people, I applaud you for that.;)

    Well, as Tevion don't make TV's, this item will be a re-badged something or other, even Sony re-badge stuff that they don't make, oh and of course all Hitachi LCD TV's are re-badged low end stuff.

    So what is in a name any more.. :confused: :confused:

    All LCD TV's have faults, even the Sony/Samsung/Toshiba's.


    Anyway, no doubt the Medion 32" LCD TV will sell out within a few days.

    Many thanks.

    Actually this thread has only highlighted that different sets work for different people. Because I am looking for one for the bedroom, one HDMI slot is perfect and I prefer my sky+ box to freeview and like watching sport so the faster response time and contrast ratios are a bonus. The difficulties dealing with TEVION under warranty and the poor picture etc as detailed already in this thread by another poster put me off a little. However, I can see where two or more HDMI connections could be useful and if the TV is less reliable then a longer warranty may be comforting.
