Goodmans LCD Flat Screen TV Review

By: Stephen Morgan

Getting a new TV for the home is a major purchase nowadays. If you are going to invest what most people would consider to be a large amount of money or at the very least a small fortune then it might be an idea to try and do some investigation and gfet it right at the outset.

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

Digital television (DTT) is a telecommunication system for broadcasting and receiving moving pictures and sound by means of digital signals, in contrast to analogue signals used by analogue (traditional) TV. There are a number of different ways to receive digital television. One of the oldest means of receiving DTV (and TV in general) is using an antenna (known as an aerial in some countries).

With this article the aim is to take a look at what is on offer with the latest generation of Flat Screen Televisions and in this case the Goodmans GTVL26W17HDF.

The GTVL26W17HDF is a 26in LCD TV and the prices for these would be in the region of 400 pounds sterling or 800 US dollars. The resolution of the screen is 1366 X 768 and with regards to being HD Ready the answer is yes. The Goodmans has 2 (2 RGB) scarts and the type and number of Multimedia interfaces the GTVL26W17HDF uses is HDMI and 2. The type of Tuner for this TV is Analogue and Digital and the Goodmans is available from a wide variety of outlets.

So given this information, what would be our view of the Goodmans GTVL26W17HDF?

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

Finally our overall opinion would be that this TV has a great amount to commend it in a number of ways but sadly we feel is let down by the actual perfromnce of the picture which sadly for a Flat Screen TV is rather important we feel.

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 either opt for one of the more cutting edge newer options available or stay safe and go for one of the more established options 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
