Tesco TV €99

Anyone looking for a cheap TV for bedroom/kitchen could do worse than deal in Tesco today. Samsung SyncMaster T200HD priced at €99.
Full specs here.
Pros:
Acts as PC Monitor with DVI and 15 pin DSub
MPEG 4 Tuner
Cons
Not MHEG5 (ie no text on DTT etc..)
However €99 is definitely a bargain.

No hdmi though so watch out!

Well ,i guess seeing as it doesnt have any speakers, a simple hdmi to dvi lead will do the trick!

Hold one now, if this does have a tuner, shouldnt it have speakers!? I'm confused, is that definitely the right spec-sheet? It doesnt mention any tuner there

Pity there are no speakers. I attached a pic of the price tag, although its probably no use to anyone. Sold out in Tesco in Douglas Village shopping centre.

a bit confused with the does it doesnt it have speakers.
The specs mention multimedia speakers - does that mean not built in but separate.
Also a bit vague about the MPEG4 / HD tuner for Saorview.
Please clarify anyone who knows

im pretty sure in regards to the speakers,the t.v is classed as a pc monitor however you can use it as a tv too,so you won't get the little external speakers with it but you will get sound from the telly itself.

Just to let people know, the Sligo and Carrick-on-Shannon Tesco's don't have any if you planned to check either.

Bargain if you live near a Tesco that has them.
