B&o Beovision 8 - Try One and See How Good They are

By: Scott James

Buying a new television nowadays is a major investment. The idea of parting with what could be a couple of hundred notes does tend to concentrate the mind somewhat.

Given the way technology changes it is essential to try and make sure that your purchase is relatively future-proof.

The latest telecommunication system for broadcasting moving pictures and sound is known as Digital television (DTT) and as the name implies this relies upon the transmission and reception of digital signals as opposed to the more conventional analogue formats. DTV uses digital modulation data, which is digitally compressed and requires decoding by a specially designed television set, or a standard receiver with a set-top box, or a PC fitted with a television card.

The purpose of this article is to take a look at what is on offer with the new generation of Flat Screen Televisions available and in this case the television in particular is the B&O Beovision 8.

The Beovision 8 is a 26in LCD TV and currently these TV's can be found for 1800 pounds sterling or 2900 US dollars. The resolution of the screen is 1366 X 768 and with regards to being HD Ready the answer is yes. The Beovision has 2 (2 RGB) scarts and the type and number of Multimedia interfaces the Beovision 8 uses is HDMI and 1. The type of Tuner for this TV is Analogue and the Beovision is available from specialised outlets only.

All these points being taken into consideration, how would we view the B&O Beovision 8?

Well to start with our score for the picture quality is 8 out of 10, and for the sound quality we would rate it at 8 out of 10. Another useful aspect to review is the availability and number of relevant connections and our score here would be 6 out of 10. As far as overall features are concerned we would give it 6 out of 10 if we then take a look at the ease of use and overall value for money then our scores would be, 4 out of 10 and 6 out of 10 respectively.

The overall verdict would be this is definitely one to consider if you don't mind paying a huge premium for the appearance and looks

With the wide range and variety of makes and models available for you to choose from it is unlikely that you will not find something to suite your taste or satisfy any budgetary constraints that you might have. You could be completely avant-garde and stay in the forefront of fashion and design or you could decide to take perhaps the safer option and go for one of the established makes and models available. Either way we hope that by reading this short article you should have a slightly more informed view of the options available to you

With regards to the prices in this article we have tried in all cases to take an average across the industry from a number of well known web sites and so we ask you to bear this in mind and treat these prices as advisory only rather than absolutes.
