B and Olufsen Beovision Flatscreen TV Review

By: Scott James

Getting a new TV for the home is a major purchase nowadays. The idea of parting with what could be a couple of hundred notes does tend to concentrate the mind somewhat.

The way that technology changes so quickly nowadays you would be wise to consider carefully any investment and try and ensure that it remains compliant with all possible standards.

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. With DTT, viewers are limited to whatever channels the antenna picks up. Signal quality will also vary.

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 B&O Beovision 8.

The Beovision 8 is a 26in LCD TV and the prices for these would be in the region of 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?

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 8, and for the sound quality we would rate it at 8. Another useful aspect to review is the availability and number of relevant connections and our score here would be 6. If we take a look at the overall "featureability" our score would be 6 and for ease of use and overall value for money we would give it, 4 and 6 respectively.

Finally our overall opinion 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 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. No matter what rout you take we hope that after reading this article you should be more informed as to the correct choice with which to take.

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.
