Technika 40in LCD TV from only £163

Check out the Technika 40-270, a 32in television which costs a mere £163 (after a £5 discount using the code TD-YPWX) at Tesco. It was originally on sale for £168, a saving of £100 off the previous selling price. It comes with 168 Clubcard points and must be collected in-store.

It has a 40in screen size and a 1,920 x 1,080 pixel display with a 430cd/m2 brightness, two 8W speakers, a Freeview tuner as well as three HDMI ports, a SCART socket, component input, a USB port, a VGA one, a headphone socket and a power consumption of 135W while in use.

Unsurprisingly, it doesn’t come with any fancy features such as Internet capabilities, DLNA compatibility, Freeview HD or the ability to record to USB. Some might also frown at the thick bezel, which makes the Technika 40-279 look much bigger than it is.

The retailer also put a 32in television set on sale for £113, which got snapped up very quickly and ran out of stock within hours. 40in televisions are an oddity on the market, squeezed between 37in models and 42in displays which usually sell for around £250.
