Rated 1 out of 5 by DappaDonDAve Not Great - I'd avoid
I bought one of these as my son wanted a tv/DVD for his play room so he could watch his much loved Thomas the Tank Engine DVD's.
All started off well but the set started to flicker across the top of the screen, regardless of which DVD we watched.
Asda exchanged and were great about it, but the second set started to flicker across the centre.
Although this does not bother my 4 year old, it annoys me knowing its not working and I dont want it to cause future issues, I.E completely stop working.
I've had an ALBA tv/dvd combo from a high street catalogue store for about 3 years and it has not missed a beat.
I'd avoid this brand/tv set.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Slowrunnings Very disappointing
We currently have a Polaroid TV which we have been very pleased with so when our existing TV/DVD Combi broke I was delighted to find this item. On the positive side, the set up is very easy and quick and the price very good. However, the sound quality is terrible - very tinny and harsh - and it didn't make any difference when you adjusted the bass. In addition, when watching DVDs it keeps freezing, only for a few seconds, but nevertheless this is very annoying.
Given these issues I have returned the set to Asda for a full refund and have now bought a different brand. Very disappointing purchase

Rated 1 out of 5 by atko30 Complete Dissapointment!
I wouldn't waste your money on this tv. I bought this for my sons birthday, he played his brand new dvd's in it only to find that the screen jumps/flickers every 1 to 2 minutes all the way through the dvd. Tried numerous dvds to make sure but no it was the tv. I wasn't happy so I took it back and Asda kindly exchanged it for another one. I got this home and it was even worse!! I decided to get a full refund and purchase a different brand television. I won't be buying from Polaroid again, what a let down!

Rated 1 out of 5 by BrownyLad Not recommended
Paid slightly more for the product than a similar alternative but as I was already in the shop I would take the risk. As soon as I got it home, I set it up next to the one I was replacing - (not wall mountable) and the quality was immediately noticed. Could not get any more than 9 Channels to load and not one of them was of a good quality so connected directly to Sky box via HDMI cable and still disappointed in the picture quality. Sound quality is appalling also so, it's back to the store today!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SlamDunc Perfect for the price
I bought two of these for my children having read all of the reviews. They are delighted with them, using them to watch Freeview (built in) and BBC iPlayer (through a Wii), to play computer games (X-Box and Wii) and watch DVD's. I had no problems with the assembly or setting up and there have been no problems with either set in any area of use (all be it they are only a month old now). I would say that these sets are excellent value with surprisingly good pictures and sound for the price (in fact, picture wise, I would be impressed even if they had cost more).

Rated 1 out of 5 by ladybowler Returned after annoying fault
Had trouble with picture freezing and losing picture. Added aerial booster - no improvement. Received Asda email,out of the blue, concerning faults and mine was barcode mentioned. Was told to remove plug, wait 2 mins and switch on again to cure fault. This worked, as I had already discovered, but still had the same fault. Who wants a tele that you frequently have to switch off, unplug and switch on again. Shame as picture was good, although sound a bit tinny. All credit to Asda for getting in touch when I thought it was signal troubles! Replacing with Toshiba which has good reviews.
