    TV for the offsprings bedroom

    Doesn't want to be too large, VESA mountable, Smart TV, Netflix/Prime Video, iPlayer etc all built-in.
    Be nice if it had Bluetooth as well so she can use her headphones rather than the crappy speaker output that most smaller TV's tend to have.

    Budget <£200 ideally

    I think you might struggle at that price without looking at something open box or a retailers eBay store.

    Another option perhaps is a monitor + Firestick/Roku/similar combo?
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    If she does the washing up for a month to cover the extra £20 this is great bang for buck

    That LG looks good. One thing to check though is does Bluetooth mean Bluetooth audio. I appreciate that it may sound stupid, but when I was looking a couple of years ago, a number of the low end models only supported Bluetooth keyboards, not Bluetooth audio.

    I don't mind going a bit higher, but if I said £250 then suggests would have come in over £250

    That LG does look good, not sure if 32" is a bit big for her room but they do a bundle with a full movable wall mount which would cover space issues..

    Good point. Had a quick check and it suggests its a goer

    Re: TV for the offsprings bedroom

    If it’s at all possible I’d try before buying. A lot of the ones I looked at, even the ones that said it worked didn’t and/or had horrible audio lag.

    I appreciate that’s easier said than done in the middle of a global pandemic though.

    I doubt it'll be an issue, she doesn't use BT audio now, I simply had it as a nice to have and would mean I don't have to listen to the crap she watches lol
