Had no problem with both TVs I own. One of the best features that I only came across by chance was that if you plug a USB stick in the back you suddenly have recordable TV! Bonus. So we can record prrogrammes using one of the TVs in the bedroom now!
For the money you can't really complain about any of the shortcomings listed elsewhere. (read more)

The DVD player worked fine for about 13 months then packed in. Will not read discs or even realise that one is in. HAve had the back off but 'no serviceable user parts' inside so cant fix myself. Its also asembled in a way that makes taking the dvd unit out/apart would risk breaking other parts (screen etc). It looks as if the mech for moving the read head has gone faulty. HAve asked about for some quotes to fix but usually in excess of £20-£30 and can buy a new dvd unit from Asda for less... (read more)

If you want to have TV freeview, DVD and HD, this package is fantastic value for money. The screen quality is brilliant, in fact better than some I have seen at triple the price!!!
Its packed full of features, more than the average user will ever need. If you want a great all round product, then this is the package for you. Its our main TV, we watch lots of films and sport, and its really out performed our expectations.
Ours didn't pick up more than the basic freeview channels (probably... (read more)

I bought this tv in June for my bedroom. It is perfect size for me at a viewing distance of around 1 - 2 meters. Below I will explain the pro's and con's;
Connectivity - 5* for connectivity as there is a port for just about everything, scart, tv arial, AV, HDMI, USB, Pc and 1 other one which I don't even know what goes in there.
Picture quality - 4* The picture quality is awesome when you get it onto the right settings, You can perfectly see the difference from a standard detail TV and... (read more)

I have had this TV, the Matsui 22" HD READY DIGITAL LCD TV WITH DVD PLAYER M22DVDB19 for only a couple of days and it has been quite a roller-coaster ride of highs and lows so far - sometimes very pleased, sometimes very disappointed.
Image quality - 4 stars. I am not seen an HD video on it yet - 4 stars is for Freeview TV and maybe the limitations that lost a star are more to do with the freeview signals than the TV?
Sound quality - 3 stars consisting of 4 stars for the TV speakers (clear... (read more)

Nice looking TV! Big on features! Major sound problems! When watching at a low volume or during quiet scenes the sound goes off! If they sort this problem out they will have a top seller! Until the time they fix this problem i would NOT recommend buying it! Its a shame because its a really nice looking TV packed with features for a budget price! (read more)

I sell TV's for a living, and would love to raise a few concerns. Firstly, if you're going to buy the cheapest, most value orientated TV on earth, DO NOT complain that it is of poor quality. this tv is value max. (read more)

Picked one up from Currys on 14/2, found when changing channels it either switched off, went to a blue screen or a back lit screen. Then no amound of pressing buttons would revive it, you had to go and manually switch it off and then you would regain control. Took it back on 16/2 got another which I took back for a refund on 17/2 as it did exactly the same. Otherwise the tele seemed ok apart from this fundamental problem. (read more)

We are now on our third set because the obnoxious staff in Newtown Curry's refuse to give us a refund. The third set has exactly the same gaps in sound when playing DVD. Now have to pluck up the courage to return again, armed with reviews here that say the same....... (read more)

Terrible television. Bought two for xmas, one was ok but the other was watched for an hour and switched itself off and has to be returned as it never came back on. Waited ages for it to be swapped. Both teles have sound problems when the dvd is in use, sound switches off several times during the film which is infuriating. When watching digital, all you can hear is a loud buzzing coming from the television. Also on one of the teles there is a white streak of colour going across the screen... (read more)

Appalling, am now on my second one in less than a month and also have to take that back as the DVD keeps losing sound and Curry's made me stand there and watch a DVD with them as they didn't believe what I told them. Am not looking forward to dealing with their useless customer service a second time. I'm really disappointed as I love the look of the Tv and wanted to get rid of the external DVD taking up space but I would definitely not recommend an integrated DVD player if this is what...

Set TV up, new out of the box, to find a pixel not working. Matsui would do nothing about it as they say less than 4 pixels not working is not a fault unless they are in the centre of the screen, so when is a fault not a fault.They will do nothing about this common fault (read more)

I've been looking combo LCD/DVD/Freeview TV's for the bedroom for a while, to replace an ageing 14" CRT.
Like the previous reviewer - I couldn't find many reviews for this, but the Matsui 22" seemed to have good features, and is aesthetically a nice piece of kit (compared to the logic, cello and technika alternatives)
Once I got the set home - I was bowled over. I'm still smiling now!
Freeview reception is excellent, and the picture quality is fantastic for a budget set. Colour... (read more)

I have recently been looking for a reasonably priced LCD television ideal for my bedroom wall. I was looking to spend around £170 on a 19" LCD/DVD Combi. This is because I don't want to have to connect any external sources as in DVD players or Digi boxes cos these need wires. Because I am a bit of a gadget lover I also wanted one with as many features as possible.
I was searching everywhere when I came across the 22 inch, Matsui M22DVDB19 LCD/DVD combi, available from Currys and PC World... (read more)
