Budget Asda Durabrand 26" Widescreen



My mother is looking for a Christmas present for my little brother. Asda are selling a cheap Durabrand 26" widescreen CRT for £154. Both me and her work at Asda anyway, so we get a 10% discount.

Obviously the Asda cheapo stuff aren't that hot, their entire Pacific/Durabrand/Dual range in fact, but given the budget we're looking at here, it suits the bill fine. We're not talking about a kid who would be as picky as you or I about such things anyway.

My questions though are...

1) Does it have 60Hz input? Preferably NTSC as well, but I suppose plain PAL60 would be fine... it becomes a null issue with RGB Scart anyway doesn't it?

2) At least one of the Scart sockets support RGB?

3) I can see him wanting to hook his PC up to the thing to watch his DivX's etc. Simple enough, S-Video or Composite adaptor into the Scart socket I assume...
But does such a setup support widescreen resolutions?

Sorry you've had no reply, but since you both work at Asda, isn't it easy just to ask someone?

Failing that, won't they let you open the box to check the Manual?

Good luck. :smashin:
