The Goodmans Gtv27w3 LCD Flat Screen TV

By: Stephen Morgan

A friend of mine swore that he just can't stay a day without the benefits of Digital TV. Digital TV offers people access to hundreds of channels in many varieties to choose from. Reasons avail to why many now prefer Digital TV to Cable TV.

Users of Digital TV now have access to the information as well as the usual channels. Everyone can now enjoy lots of channels with the power of Digital TV. Children no longer have to be restricted to just the few channels they were watching because with Digital TV, they have the option of watching as many children channels as they can.

Affordability is a factor that has worked very well to the favor of Digital TV. Despite the many wonders of Digital TV, it costs less to own one than it does to own a Cable TV. This is where most people just don't get it. More should cost more, not less.

It certainly makes no sense to keep paying more money yet receiving less. As a Digital TV subscriber you now have lots of varieties of channels to choose from. Digital TV has now made the dreams of many subscribers come true; now subscribers can watch as many channels as they want -- be it comedy channels, movie channels, drama channels or music channels. The huge variety offered by Digital TV ensures they will remain better than Cable TV; unless Cable TV gets up and starts doing things better.

This is all well and good but what practical difference to our lives does all of this make as far as the Goodmans GTV27W3LCD Digital TV is concerned.

The GTV27W3LCD is a 27in LCD TV and currently these TV's can be found for 350 pounds sterling or 700 US dollars. The resolution of the screen is 1260 X 720 and with regards to being HD Ready the answer is no. The Goodmans has 2 (2 RGB) scarts and the type and number of Multimedia interfaces the GTV27W3LCD uses is HDMI and no connections are available. The type of Tuner for this TV is Analogue and the Goodmans is available from limited outlets only.

So how would we rate the Goodmans GTV27W3LCD?

Well to start with our score for the picture quality is 6, and for the sound quality we would rate it at 6. Taking a look at the number of relevant connections and their availability, our score would be 4. If we take a look at the overall "featureability" our score would be 4 if we then take a look at the ease of use and overall value for money then our scores would be, 8 and 8 respectively.

Taking everything into consideration our overall view of the package would be that this TV is well away from the latest models in terms of bleeding edge technology and performance but the overall package including the price makes this not a bad deal.

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
