So, we need a new TV. Old one died. It was a big old CRT thing. One of a few we've had for nowt off freecycyle as the world goes 'flat panel'.
It's time we join the revolution so, off we went to John Lewis.... lordy, if only it was like The Good Old Days -
Want a TV?
Yes - Go to radio rentals.
Pick size. Done!
Ended up utterly fragged - so many models, so many slight variations to spec and, frankly, some are just rubbish and/ or not all display models are served with a decent signal = extra hard to judge.
What we do 'know'.
Looking at 37"
'Smart' TV not really required - we live in an area where broadband is very poor (i.e. to view someting on I-Player we have to download it overnight......) so will not likely see any true benefit in the lifetime of theTV.
3D - not bothered.
HD - presume 'true 1080' is worth the extra over an upscaling model?
We've kind of narrowed it down to these 2 but so comments on them / alerts to others that simply must be seen (based on picture quality and / or price) would be appreciated
