LG 22LH2000 22-inch Widescreen HD Ready LCD TV with Freeview - Black

LG 22LH2000 22-inch Widescreen HD Ready LCD TV with Freeview - Black Review



I managed to pick one of these up from Sainsbury's for £169 two weeks ago. So far I am very impressed. This will live as a bedroom wall mounted TV and so far I can't complain.

The freeview tuning, whilst taking quite a long time for me, was accurate and the picture quality was great despite the signal being split with another room.

The sound, while not spectacular, is sufficient for a middle of the road TV person like myself.

The PC connection is also very clear and the images are very sharp.

All in all, a very nice piece of kit, and a bargain.

Excellent TV - G Fear -
We have had this TV for a few weeks now it is very easy to set up and gives a good picture and sound. It is easy to use and the on screen display is easy to follow, would buy this tv and brand again




Bedroom TV - Recusant Hobbit - UK
After quite a lot of research for keenest price, brand and supplier for 22" LCD TVs we selected this one.

It is to replace a bedroom set in an apartment so bigger sets were not a consideration. Sub 26" sets becoming cheaper as 32" seems to be overtaking.

It is attractive, great picture without being technical and fits the requirement.
Built-in freeview digital receiver standard now which makes some pre-2008 reviews of sets irrelevant.

Analogue signal still about because UK not fully switched.



Excellent small tv - S. Leng - West Yorkshire
I bought a small tv for my son a Sony bravia but when it came to getting one for my room money was a bit tight. I looked at many on the internet and went for this one. I have been very pleased with my purchase, it is excellent. Great picture and sound quality.

Samsung LE32B450C4 32-inch Widescreen HD Ready LCD TV with Freeview

Samsung LE32B450C4 32-inch Widescreen HD Ready LCD TV with Freeview Review



The screen resolution and contrast ratio are about as good as the vast majority of the population needs. I really like this TV and think that it really is great value for money. It's a shame that integrated HD tuners are still in their infancy in the UK in mid 2010 but there is hardly any HD content on freeview (free to air) anyway. It's not full 1080p HD spec but close enough that 99/100 people would not even know the difference after seeing the image.

Absolutely Fantastic - Jason L. Halfpenny - United Kingdom
TV came well packaged in perfect working order and hard to see why we go it for the dirt cheap price we did when it was just a slight little blemish scratch, extremely happy with my purchase.

Top class seller and top tv.






A great TV - Mr. Robert J. Longhurst - East Grinstead, West Sussex United Kingdom
This is an excellent purchase from Amazon at of course a very very good price. Once un-packed This TV automatically searches and finds all Analogue and Freeview Channels. Once this is done all you have to worry about is connecting up a Sky Box or DVD etc, then It's all systems go. The picture is fantastic "from the box", everything from colour to contrast is preset to a perfect level.Good sound too, so just sit back and ENJOY!!



A really good buy - J. Jackson - england
This is the second Samsung we have bought, and I cant speak highly enough about them. The next one will certainly be another Samsung. Also the best price was from Amazon.

Bought this tv due to the digital switchover, impulse-buy the day I realised my old tv was not gonna cut the mustard. Had previously bought a 32inch Samsung years before, this is just a mini version with all the same qualities. Would buy one for every room if i could.

Just OK, would not buy another!!! - RWB - UK
Have loads of Samsung branded kit and always been very pleased with this brand up until now!!!!
Face colour on BBC studio news is very poor and none of the adjustments make it much better.
Viewing slightly off angle, left or right or up (walking past it in the kitchen)results in a very poor washed out picture.
Have spent a lot of time trying to find the best adjustment but it is just not in the same league as a Panasonic plasma.
So if you have a good plasma TV I doubt you will be very happy with the picture on this LCD set.
Notice in the showrooms how they always put these small screen sets at eye level yet the big screens are on floor stands, I now know why.






Not a satisfactory purchase - ESMOND VANDERGERT -
This Samsung TV was defective and was returned to Amazon at no cost to me. I was offered a replacement or full refund. I chose the latter



Super TV - Howard Wilson - Wiltshire, UK
Have this in our kitchen and is an excellent purchase. Very good picture quality and sound, good to look at. Excellent piece of kit. Would recommend to anyone

Sony Bravia KDL40W5500U 40-inch Widescreen Full HD 1080p LCD TV with Freeview and 100Hz Motionflow

Sony Bravia KDL40W5500U 40-inch Widescreen Full HD 1080p LCD TV with Freeview and 100Hz Motionflow Review



First of all, congratulations go to Amazon for outstanding delivery time and service. This TV was ordered late on a Wednesday night and delivered by parcel force early on the Saturday morning of that week. I think that is remarkable.

The set up of this TV is simplicity itself. From opening the box to putting on the stand, connecting it to our peripherals and switching on took less than 15 minutes. We have it connected to a Sky + box and so there was no tuning to be done. The correct input was selected for the Sky box and away we went.

My initial thoughts on seeing the picture were good but a few minor tweaks of brighness, hue and contrast and the picture was outstanding. Very crisp, natural looking colour and with motionflow on, movement was scarily smooth.

Can I address a couple of points others have raised and suggest solutions. Firstly several people have said that after a period of time the TV spontaneously switches off of its own accord. A brief look at the instruction manual will tell you that the front of the TV has a motion sensor which to all intents and purposes can `see` if anyone is in the room. If you have this feature turned `on` and you sit motionless for a couple of hours or for whatever time you have preset it for, then the TV will switch off. All you need to do is switch this feature off. Pretty simple.

The second very common `problem` is the light at each corner of the screen pointing into the centre of the screen. Some people have said this is present in very dark scenes and is so distracting they have had to send the appliance back. Just change the ambient light setting and the lights magically disappear! I can categorically say that the screen is super impressive even with terrestrial digital and I cannot wait to see its performance on SKY HD.

Sony Bravia TV`s are among the best quality you can get in this price range. I have several family members and friends who have these TV`s and have had no short or long term problems with them. Please don`t be put off by bad reviews. Some simple thought and reading solves all their complaints. Buy it and ENJOY!

SONY LCD TV - P H LEAN -

Purchased TV with 3 year warranty as advertised by Amazon only to find when the product arrived that this was not current.
Contacted Amazon to query warranty offer was initially fobbed off.But was persistent and eventually Amazon agreed to give me Allianz warranty cover at no cost.
I wonder how many customers who purchased at the same time were aware of the problem.

This was a bit naughty,particularly as the warranty offer was removed from the Amazon site almost immediately.

As regards the TV it arrived on time well packaged and relatively easy to set up.

I like and trust Sony products and hope the TV will be the same.

Very good quality television - h7fal - Edinburgh, UK
Set up is nice and simplistic, picture excellent and sound is surprisingly decent (compared to me old Viera plasma). Bit of a dust magnet but I guess all these black TVs are. I would certainly recommend it.

Toshiba Regza 42RV635DB 42-inch Widescreen Full HD 1080p LCD TV with Freeview

Toshiba Regza 42RV635DB 42-inch Widescreen Full HD 1080p LCD TV with Freeview Review



This is a replacement for a 40" Sony that went defective after 14 months. My initial reaction was that the Toshiba did not have the quality feel of the Sony; then again it cost a lot less than the Sony. The Sony instruction manual was barely adequate, but the Toshiba manual was even skimpier than the Sony one, and it does seem to be for a whole group of televisions not just the one I have.. The reviews that I have read report that the sound of the Toshiba is poor, but my eighty year old hearing could not determine whether this was true or not. What it did notice was that on three occasions in the first week, the sound became completely distorted - it sounded like the bass control had gone to max. and each of the speaker was outputting in a different language; the only solution was to switch off completely, rest a few seconds the restart. On one occasion part of the picture went into horizontal bars mode. Other wise the quality of the picture seems excellent.
The delivery from Amazon was as usual excellent and the after sales service second to none

Toshiba the tops!!! - Leonard Webb - UK
I looked around at plenty of televisions and decided that I would stick with Toshiba as I have another tv of the same brand. This tv comes alive when my blu-ray player is connected to it, and the picture quality is sharp and crystal clear and the best you can get. The audio sound is of very good quality too and overall I am glad I've kept with the Toshiba brand and would definately buy another one.
This is the best you can buy and you won't be disapointed :)

Toshiba 42 inch widescreen - Gripper - uk
This tv does exactly what it says on the tin. A perfect size for watching an a minimal amount of frame around the out side giving you a full picture. The set up and operation is simple and the picture quality very good and at a price you could not beat.



resolution plus??? - gadget girl - sussex
i love this tv.the resolution plus is an upscaler for digital tv(not sky just the freeveiw inbuilt) and it works the picture quality is such that my sky box is turned off at every opportunity because the freeveiw picture is so good! the sound also blew me away, i have a toshiba dvd and the sound from the films is almost 3d. try a blue ray player with thia tv and your going to get a surprise(a good one). oh and this one has an off switch! a real bug bear of mine with our previous toshiba tv. also the light adjster saves alot of electricity apparently so save the planet buy one!

First rate T V, Have had this for some months now and find it an easy to use system, very clear picture and clear sound. Very compatible with other equipment such as DVD player, and video recorder. Good connection outlets on the back and side. Also works well with the Sagem digital recorder, which lets us record two programs and watch a third through the TV. (not sure how but it does??) Also has an off button on the side so that it can be switched off to save energy ! Amazon were 1st rate on supply and delivery.

Toshiba Regza 32RV635DB 32-inch Widescreen Full HD 1080p LCD TV with Freeview

Toshiba Regza 32RV635DB 32-inch Widescreen Full HD 1080p LCD TV with Freeview Review



The TV arrived ahead of the original delivery dates given by Amazon, This replaced an older 32" Toshiba LCD that after 6 years had developed picture problems. it was well packaged and easy to get out of the box.

My first task was to attach the wall bracket that came off the previous model. No problems so far. I wanted to attach a scart lead from the Toshiba HDD/DVD/VCR player I have. Unfortunately the only scart sockets are on the back panel, none on the side. This caused me a problem as it proved impossible to centre the set on the wall bracket as the scart lead pushed the set away from the wall. Obviously this will depend on the size of your wall bracket , but you should be aware. I got round this by pushing the TV to the right when sitting on the bracket. Considering I had no problem with the previous Toshiba was somewhat surprising. It just means I can see a bit of the bracket to the left hand side. Solution I guess is to buy a smaller bracket.

The picture when using the PS3 in HD is brilliant.

Setting the TV up was as easy as expected with modern units. Picture quality excellent, sound the same in my opinion.

Overall an excellent TV for the price.

Excellent value! - Z. Hopkins - Birmingham, UK
This TV is really good value - a very clear picture, no glare from the screen, and good sound for a smallish room. This was far easier to set up than my previous TV and the menus are very intuitive - I also managed all the set up alone, but it would have helped to have another person on hand just to get it out of the box!. Not having Sky or BluRay I haven't tried out the full HD experience, but with a decent upscaling DVD player, movies are far sharper and clearer than on my old CRT TV. Fast delivery - 2 days from order to arriving today (and after two previous complaints about missed deliveries Citylink got their act in gear for this one!) I would definitely recommend this product for price, quality and ease of use.



Great TV with loads of inputs! - M. Hashim - London, UK
When I unpacked the TV, it came 'Flat packed' with two parts of the stand not attached to the TV. In the box, you have all of the screws for the stand, an allen key to tighten those screws, a few manuals including excellent instructions to affix the stand, and the remote (they were even nice enough to give you batteries in it). Once you affix the stand and turn on the TV, there is a wizard to go through that automatically tunes in the inbuilt FreeView tuner and sets up the TV. The Toshiba logo on the bezel is backlit, but if you don't like it you can turn it off in the settings of the TV.

Connected to the TV I currently have an upscaling DVD player, a Sky+HD Box, a PS3, and a VHS. They all connect perfectly with many ports to spare. I even connected my PC using the usual VGA and it looked great watching YouTube 1080p trailers. The speakers are relatively loud, but I connected some Logitech 5.1 speakers and they work great and give a bit more bass.

Overall, this TV is excellent with many great features and a lot of inputs.



Toshiba triumph - Peter Habermann - Livingston, Scotland
After a lot of research this is what we finally agreed on and are more than delighted with the result. Toshiba is usually tops.
