Alba 40-inch Full HD LCD TV review
Alba TV review – if I have to be completely honest today was the first time I heard about the manufacturer Alba. It was a deal for a 40-inch Full HD LCD TV at eBay UK and of course it was not the technology that impressed me but the extremely low price tag.

As you can see it is not that bad, actually this TV is very well equipped for a sub-£250 Full HD TV. Of course it is not LED backlit panel and some of the features are quite outdated but for £230 it is OK. I hope we will get some of the new Alba products for full review so we would be able to tell you more about this brand and how it performs in real world conditions.
Meanwhile you can take a look at the LG 32CS460 LCD TV and the rest of our TV reviews.
