Half decent budget 32" TV for my boy

Hoping to finishing sorting the spare room into something of a games room for my son for his B'day and Xmas. Finishing touch would be a 32" TV that he can connect his PC and Xbox360 to.
 
Seen some 'own brand' TV coming up under £200 and Richer Sounds have a clearance Toshiba Smart LED for £170 I think. Funds are limited, especially as he's only 9 but also don't want to waste it on something crap.
 
Other option will be to treat myself to a Samsung 32" Smart for our bedroom and give him our 25" Hanspree.
 
Any deals, bargains or worthwhile budget brands that I may be missing?

    Have a look at the Bush ones in Argos.
    Discounted the **** out of them now and they were cheap to begin with.
    Not a bad picture at all.

    Shall do.... Argos own Bush too and I've had spectacular customer service from them with my son's tablets (which he breaks and they replace without question about every 3 months LOL)

    Didn't know they own them.
    Ah.
    Had the power unit on a Bush tv fail and brought it back - they just gave me a new tv, lol.

    I saw a report yesterday that Tesco are selling off a load of TV's well below RRP due to their branding (ISIS! LOL)
     
    Not sure how true it is though or how available they are.

    Lazy is a word used by the obsessed, to describe those with a life.

    LOL That might be worth checking out then. Can get a regular bush for £179 or a smart for £193, altho richersounds do include 5yr with their toshiba so it's close

    Hmm, thought the Bush was down to under £200 for the 40 inch HDTV.
    Maybe it ended.

    Then with £10 off code. CPW10
     
    Heard about the RicherSounds offer, but it was that stupid thing of about 2-3 sets per store, unless they have them online?

    ooh, nice find cu3ed, good TV and a good price. The richersounds one is for my local store, they had one left last I looked but there are often some decent 'box opened' deals in store

    Tesco denied any link, saying: “We have a number of televisions that we have on promotion. This is has nothing to do with the terrorist group."

    About 6 or 7 years a friend gave me his old 28 inch tv as he had bought a new 32 inch for £999.  TVs must depreciate more than my love life.

    Ebay is a good shout but don't you have those Facebook 'for sale' sites near you? Always someone flogging a telly to fund a weekend out up here. If nobody has one for sale, put an advert on the site and it will prompt someone to tjink about converting their bedroom tv into cash. Plus every f*cker is buying a new telly this time of year and looking to dispose of their old one.

    No biggie like, there are a lot worse things for you than using steroids, I mean I probably shouldn't have been smoking crack or getting into bar fights at your age TBH  - drab4

    On the subject of Argos and Bush, got a 50in screen for £300 a few months back and the picture and sound quality are pretty good. Couldn't believe it.

    Cheers for the heads up guys.
     
    Ebay? hmmm, just don't want the 'customer service' nonsense, altho for a bargain price maybe.
     
    Dunno about the FB for sale sites, will have a gander.
     
    The room is quite small, 40" may be too big for the proximity

    That's what I thought when I got my tv (58") where I was planning on sitting approximately 12ft away from the tv.  Although I pull my chair forward so that I am about 8-9ft away so you might find you can sit closer with a 40" tv.  Best thing to do is go in a shop selling tv's and stand/sit the distance it would be in your room to find out.  The difference in size of a bigger tv where it can be accommodated imo is worth it as you'll enjoy it more for gaming, watching tv etc.

    It's for my son to be 9y/o not me, he'll literally be sat 2-3ft away at the most... if it was me bigger would go without saying, no matter what LOL
