Technika 46in LCD Television on sale for £284

Tesco has cut the price of the Technika 46in LCD TV to a mere £283.50. That’s a saving of around 30 per cent, which is enough to make this device the cheapest television above 42in on the market by a long distance.

It unfortunately doesn’t come with free delivery, but it does come with 283 Clubcard points, worth up to £11 in Clubcard deals. It is though a shame that there are no reviews of the television set online.

The product has a 117cm diagonal and a 1,920 x 1,080 resolution; there’s also two 9 Watt speakers, a Freeview tuner, three HDMI ports, a SCART socket, component input, a USB port, a headphone socket, a VGA port and a power consumption that reaches up to 137 Watts.

At this price though, there’s no Ethernet port, Smart TV or PVR capabilities, no Freeview HD tuner, DLNA or 3D functionality.

That said, you’d be hard-pressed to find a TV with a screen this size for such a low price.

Could Tesco’s price cut prompt other manufacturers to cut down the average price of their large format television sets soon? (We have noted that a number of retailers have 32in TV sets for under £170, 42in models for under £250 and 50in ones for less than £400.)
