    What's the worst TV sets you've ever seen?

    (Please base a poor picture quality on actually seeing the sets with a good quality feed.)






    The worst I've seen are...



    LG 42 plasma (the one with the silver frame of 1 - 2 years ago) - most noticable juddering ever

    Any DM:CACK (or DM:TECH if you must) - almost as bad juddering as the LG above

    BenQ 46 inch plasma - green blacks instead of err, BLACK blacks!

    Vision 42 inch plasma - as sold in Maplin. VERY poor contrast.

    ****KNOWS 20 inch LCD TV - Saw it in Currys with an amazingly reflective screen and EIGHT brightly lit stuck green pixels yet STILL on display!

    they do that so you go, "hmm best not buy the cheap £1000 20" lcd, il have to buy the £4000 Panasonic instead!" :rotfl:

    well other than the fact they are too lazy to change it.

    i went into pc world to buy an LCD screen and when it came to the crunch it turned out the one being displayed wasnt the model you were buying! came back 2 hrs later... what you know they moved it! they have got common sense! walk around to the front main display area..... hey whats this! its the same LCD monitor with the SAME WRONG tag!

    42" Techwood seen in Currys about a year and half ago. Awful picture! :thumbsdow To be fair they weren't doing it any favours, I remember the scene was dark with candle light, everything just looked a washed out grey. :rolleyes: That will sort the wheat from the chaff.

    I once had a 14 inch Ferguson black and white portable TV and the picture wasn't up to much.
