Replacement LCD Kitchen TV

5 posts in this topic

Afternoon all!

I'm looking for a suggestion (s) for a replacement TV for the Kitchen - 22" to 24", with in-built Freeview and a decent sound quality (if that's possible with a budget style TV like this). It'll be set on the worktop surface (wired to an external roof aerial) and nothing too grand, likely ceiling budget c.£200. Any thoughts from those of you that know about these things? +++ TP.

12 months ago I paid £115 for a 24" smart  Samsung HD TV in white for my bedroom off EBay from the Tesco page. It had a damaged box and should have been about £250 looking on other sites at the same item. 

Worth a look.

Howdy Tosh, long time no speak!

We bought a 26" Toshiba for our kitchen about 3 years ago.  It has served us very well, has decent sound (as good as you can expect) and it has a very good picture.  It has Freeview etc.  I think we paid £240 back then.  I could have got cheaper, but this one got the nod for reasons I can't remember.

But...

Buy a Samsung.

They're just a lot better and I wish I had.  The Toshiba is slow to start up, very slow, and also slow to establish a connection with our WiFi router (it connects to it for updates and also for movie content I have on 1Tb HDD on the network).

It's a nice looking TV and I shouldn't really complain about it.  It is on morning and night, and in a very warm kitchen AND above a radiator on the wall!  So it has a pretty demanding environment but has never let us down....

...yet I still can't recommend it!  The slow start up of the Toshiba when compared to the swiftness and sheer functionality and quality of the Samsung range at present would get my money every time.

Thanks for the comments and advice - MrsTP 'blagged' a display Samsung 22" TV at a discount, set up already and very good quality, compared to the Sony it has replaced. Original cheap idea of a Logik was not a good option after all!! :cool:
