    The folks had an aldi tv that wasnt great but maybe it was just there bad experience.

    Personally for an extra £50 i would get this http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=AV-003-HS

    or maybe this which is slightly cheaper:

    I'd be interested in any reviews/opinions of this tv, did anyone buy it before? http://www.aldi.co.uk/uk/html/offers/58_7032.htm

    With electrics, IMHO you get what you pay for. Cheap is usually cheerful. There are exceptions to this rule of thumb, but I cant see Sony/Samsung etc making an Aldi TV/screen and have it listing at £300 when their equivelant is nearer £500 so you will almost certainly get a poorer build and picture quality, plus less warrenty and come-back. (Cant see Aldi swapping a TV gone wrong just out of warrenty. They would just say 'What do you expect when you only paid £300!) I personally would never buy a TV like this, but like I say, there are exceptions to the rule...

    There are better deals to be had. What about this for £299 and 5 year warranty for 29.99 more. It is NOT digital, but with freeview being so cheap now.

    Thanks, I understand this and this is the price range I am looking at and am limited by that however it is just a basic tv I am looking for and am wanting an lcd type for space saving.
    I thought all Aldi products had a 3 year warranty?

    Try Direct TVs, good selection and good prices of better 'branded' products.

    Doesn't this mean it is not digital ready?
    I would like to have one with freeview rather than a separate box.

    It depends on the context of the Richer sounds comment. There are some HD freeview channels coming and it may mean those will not be viewable. Essentially every TV is digital ready, but some do have the freeview box built in which is easier...

    ...or it may mean you will not be able to scan for new freeview channels but only use the ones built into the reciever?!
