    I want to buy the Audiovox VE1040 LCD TV. It mounts under a kitchen cabinet.

    I can't find a supplier in the UK. Has anyone bought one and if so where from and did it work in the UK.

    I want to connect using a Digital TV sender (to enable me to hook up Sky in the kitchen). Does anyone know if it has the correct cable connections (I think they are RCA connections (the Red, Yellow and White phono plugs).


    Thanks

    i am interested in the same.

    do you think it would be possible to import a us model,and get it to work over here?

    i did see an advert in the paper yesterday for magnet kitchens,if you spend £3500 or more,you will get an undercabinet lcd tv free,these have an rrp of £599 (this is usually the highest ever price),i have not been into my local branch,to find out the make and model etc,but if i do,i will let you know,so we can do a search online for it.

    if you happen to find out first,can you let me know?

    I am looking out for the same and have checked with a friend (ex US resident) to see if a US import will work. He tells me I'd be wasting my time buying one as it will not work.

    Not giving up - why should I/We when Magnet clearly have a fully functional UK model - I have put in a question to the Lektropaks website (an A/V Specialist). As soon as I get their reply I'll update this thread.

    Happy New Year

    great!

    i went into Magnet yesterday,i was not the only one who went in to ask about the lcd,i overheard the salesperson telling the woman in front of me,that he did not have any info about the screen,and all the office staff were off on holiday,but if she rang the shop after the new year,he would find out,and ring her back.he did say that the unit was available on it's own for £599....this is probably going to be another rip off for the u.k market,if you have done a search on audiovox unit,you will know the price the unit goes for in the u.s.a,and if i remember correctly,the audiovox had a radio and cd.

    At last I have some progress on this !

    I have been in contact with the Sales Director at Lektropaks and she has been able to get hold of a sample of the Magnet version. She has kindly allowed me to buy it and I should get it tomorrow (Monday 26th Jan). I made her aware of the interest generated through this site and I believe she is going to get hold of more stock. It looks like it will cost around £449 (not bad I thought).

    I'll post again once I have received it to let you know what it is like. If it would help I can take some digital pictures of the unit - let me know if that is of any use. Once I have it I will give you the Sales Directors name and contact number and we can go from there. If you want to email me directly please do at
    lee.bowden@ntlworld.com

    Regards

    Lee

    It has arrived !

    Nice item with an 8" screen and FM radio built in. It is modern looking silver and can be mounted under a unit or against the wall. The sound is a bit 'toney' but I wasn't expecting much more. Well worth the money in my opinion.

    My contact at Lektropaks (www.lektropacks.com) is Barbara Hutchinson (Sales Director) and her number is 020 8847 2776. I have purchased other items from this company and they have proved very reliable.

    Good luck

    Lee

    Guys

    Have just found your discussion. I have also hunted high and low for this product. The magnet unit is not a patch on the Audiovox. And it has no DVD/CD facility.
    Have you heard or found out any more info on wether we can get a convertor system for the American product or is there a supplier with some sense to steel the market out there. I don,t want to pay the inflated prices. Have also sent an email to Audiovox in the US asking when they will sell here. Await there reply and your

    regards
    Tom

    Superb BONGOBANDIT.

    It is just what I have been looking for. They are not releasing it until the end of the year and they have still not given the price. How did you find out about this?

    anyway thanks very much for your help.
    :clap:


    Thanks also to CARL for directing me with the link. Cheers all

    Went to the Autumn Ideal Home Show last year and saw it. A few days ago I was throwing out the brochures I picked up from the show, saw the brochure for it and thought I'd check out the website address.



    HOWEVER! At the show I was not impressed with the unit as the TV picture was very jerky and I would warn you about that. See if you can get a demo first or be allowered to return it if not satisfied.


    :)

    Thanks

    For that advice. Audiovox have been selling this in the states for a long time,obviously for there tv system. So you would think it would be of compatible quality before they release here. Will heed your warning,but hopefully the fact they are not releasing till the end of the year is so that they can iron out these bugs.

    Its the price that will probably scare me away. I,ve got so used to seeing the American market price. I know we are going to get the **** about innotative product and it will be £1000.plus.

    Still I,ll bide my time and hope to be pleasantly surprised. Its like with all new stuff. The minute it gets popular it will be sold in Argos,currys for half the price.

    see ya and thanks again.

    Have you considered using one of the new mirrors with built-in LCD TV?
