The cheap Blaupunkt 24/207O is the best small TV I would recommend


TV features

Well, these are a lot of specifications, hopefully you make any use of them at all. The most important things about the Blaupunkt 40/138MXN I mentioned in the first paragraph. Some of the advantages of this TV besides from the price - it is a Smart TV (not Android) and it offers good picture quality in Full HD (not to be compared with premium brands like Sony and Samsung). I like the simple design of it, even though it looks a bit cheap on first glance. The LED pane frames are thin but far from the thinnest in the class.

Price

Since we've already discussed that - the cheapest I could find it on the UK market is around £250.
