"Perfect little flatscreen"

A fantastic little flatscreet television which is perfect for the person wanting a stylish and modern tv but who are on a limited budget.

I have never bought my own tv before and thought that i would come across quite a few problems due to my lack of confidence with technology and electrical items but not once have i experienced a problem with this product.

It was easy to get out of the packaging and all i had to do was plug it in and my tv was ready. Auto-tuning made it possible for me to sit back and let the television do the work for me while it found all analogue channels and then went on to search for the freeview channels, which are built into the tv itself.

Becuase of the situation of my house, it was necessary for me to buy a freeview ariel, but that too came at a small price. and simply pluged into the back of the tv...easy enough for a child to do!

I can pick up all the channels that i wanted including ITV2, E4 and many radio channels and the picture is alot better quality than i expected making watching tv an easy and pleasurable thing to do again!

The television came with an extensive instruction manual, however, to date, it has not been needed at all. I was sure that nothing would work as technical things usually dont with me but i set it up myself with ease and even found the USB port for my dvd player.

There are options to put the tv to sleep (on a timer), set the time and adjust the picture and sound. Neither of which have had to be adjusted yet. The sound of the television is crisp and clear and can reach quite a high volume.

A remote control was provided alongside the tv which is easy to use and it is clearly obvious what all the buttons were for. Its not so small that you get it lost, but its not big and bulky either.

And in addition to all this, it can be used as a computer monitor too.

The only downside i could point out about this product is the fact that the "guide" screen is slightly basic, and uninteresting. Occassionally you have to wait a second or two for it to load and move the arrows, but everything else is spot on!
