    Dixons are doing it for £399. Seems a good price to me for a 28" flatscreen and more importantly, it is within my budget.

    Been reading through these forums and Grundig seem to have a fairly good reputation compared to Samsung and Thomson whom I have since decided to discard after reading various problems about them.

    Would love to go for a Phillips or a Sony but cannot find anything comparable within my budget so a Grundig it will have to be..................unless you guys can tell me any different!

    Please reply as I have been researching this for months (though only come across this brilliant forum today!) and I have finally narrowed it down to this model so any advice would be very much appreciated.

    cheers

    thanks for the reply lynx but I don't think this TV has a flatscreen and I've read it has problems with RGB.

    You're right, it's curved on both axis, however i'd rate it over the Grundig DSG offer.

    True Grundig WS sets are built in Austria and tend to be much more upmarket than the bargain sets in DSG. Grundig are still the market leader in Germany, a feat unmatched by any of the old British TV manufacturers here in Britain! However real Grundigs are increasingly hard to find in the UK.

    The "Grundig" set in DSG is not a real Grundig, it's a badged DSG effort. You'll see no sign of it on the Grundig website.

    Having said that, they may be no worse than Bush/Goodmans etc, they probably swap about the actual suppliers.
