Sony really seem to have their heads up their bottoms at the moment. £750 for a TV that doesn't really impress.
What would be really good, Trusted Reviews, would be an objective review of some of the faceless brands. For example, is the Tesco UMC 40 (which is probably the guts from a slightly older 40" branded set stuck inside a faceless casing) any good?
For £300, it would certainly be a good deal if it could perform even reasonably well.
That would be the kind of review I would find useful, you know, stuff that people want (ie not 3D) and not with the hefty pricetag.
I'm all for being told it's a pile of crap if that's what it is, but why do mainstream reviewers avoid the budget options? Don't want to upset the big brand names?

The quick answer is because we can't get hold of them. As a company that doesn't purchase the products we review, it's very difficult to get hold of these cheap brands through normal means, precisely because the likes of Tesco don't won't us slating them.

Thanks for the reply.
Tesco do offer a 28 day return policy, though I see I might have trouble getting you to part with £300 for a week or two!
I guess I'll have to stump up the cash myself and return it if it's rubbish.
Can you confirm that these cheapy sets are often last years decent models recased?
