Samsung LE-37A558: What a TV

Sony KDL-32V4000: Excellent TV for such a low price


I've always been a bit of a Sony fan, if i'm looking for electrical goods then Sony is always the first place I look. I didn't want to spend a lot on a tv so I didn't have high hopes of getting anything of great quality. I was pleasantly suprised when...

Cheap, great picture quality, easy to install

Excellent lcd


I bought a Sony 32V4000 this year as I had upgraded to an HD box and needed the appropriate TV to replace the ageing CRT! I was attracted to the Sony as I had a 26" Bravia in the bedroom and the TV was keenly priced by Richer Sounds. I was impressed...

LG 32LG5700: A fantastic TV available at a very competitive price.

Sony KDL-32V4000: Bargain price for a Sony TV. WoW


I bought the Sony KDL-32V4000 32 inch LCD TV in the January sales because I was tired of my old CRT TV taking up so much room. This for the price was a bargain, £330 including a 5 year warranty. I've got my Laptop and DVD player plugged into it most of...

Freeview, Picture, Sound, Style. All great

Sony Handycam DCR-PC4


Just wanted to add that the dvd plays divx films. It also has a usb and sd port to play divx films. This is not listed on the Argos website and was a pleasant surprise.

Samsung LE-32A457: Samsung LE32A457 LCD TV

Great TV, Great Price, Great Quality

Product Specifications

Camcorders are becoming smaller and smaller each and every day. The size of this unit is the closest step to a "shirt pocket" video recorder when compared to any other. It's the ultimate go anywhere video camcorder and digital camera. The Pro Quality optics that are built in are fantastic and with the use of the attachable, ultra-light, optional lens you can create Professional Panoramic shots of just about anything. The add on lens is a perfect compliment to this useful picture taking tool. It's a functional tool that's the size of a disposable camera too. This palm-sized, paperback-book shaped, ultra light tiny cam has many uses and applications even for the more advanced videographer.
