Simply awesome for the money.
Well I took the plunge, and boy I am glad I did. The Tevion Aldi Elite 42" Plasma TV has fantastic connectivity with DVI, 2 x scart, 2 x component s video, and composite Rf etc... I have my Sky Digital connected to one scart, and my program scan DVD player to the other, and it's fantastic! I have read many people criticising this set because it is not true HD (ie it is 576 lines on PAL, and not 720 required by HD), but it is HD ready, ie it will accept a HD input and processes it down to its 576 lines. OK was a bit misleading by Aldi, at the time they sold them. Let's just say this set is ED (enhanced definition), and I have compared this to many sets owned by friends and relatives. I even had a few mates round one night who are home theatre fans, and my son and I enjoyed watching their jaws drop in amazement at my cheap Aldi set pumping out Monsters Inc. in awesome colour and definition. The speakers are not sensational, but you did not think it would all be great for £1000 did you? Just plug into your hi-fi or surround sound set up.
All in all, I am extremely impressed, and so is everyone who has seen it. It compares most favourably to a lot I have seen, and I am glad I made the choice. As the man in Comet said "you won't get a decent plasma for under 2 grand mate, and there ain't any with a 3 year warranty". I smiled and walked out... Lovely!
