Panasonic 42in LCD TV with Freeview HD on sale for £280

Grab this Panasonic full HD 42in LCD TV, the Viera TX-L42U5B, on eBay from top-rated seller 3Monkeys for a mere £290 including free delivery and get 280 Nectar points bonus. The TV is a refurbished one but comes with a full 12-month warranty and next day delivery.

This is possibly the best value for money television under £300 and the only one we’ve seen at this price with a Freeview HD tuner. In comparison, Amazon sells it for a whopping £480 and Argos has it for £550.

The TX-L42U5B comes with a 42in diagonal display and a 1,920 x 1,080 resolution, three HDMI connectors, a PC input, one USB port, two 8W speakers and a number of pre-defined settings for specific scenarios like the Eco mode or the Gaming mode.

The television set comes with an optical digital audio output which allows you to connect to a separate hi-fi, home cinema audio system or sound bar.

At 15.5kg with its tabletop stand, it is surprisingly light and is suitable for wall mounting thanks to a VESA mount. Unfortunately, it was given a C rating when it comes to energy efficiency with a 124W power consumption when on.
