    We've consigned ours to the kitchen at home where it rarely gets turned on, even then I've had to route the sound through some external speakers as the built in things defy the Trade Descriptions Act.

    Yep agree the sound is rubbish and the remote is what you would expect out of a Christmas cracker

    I just dont get it. Our Cello TV has worked well ever since we had it. Must be lucky I guess.
    I have recommended it to others who are pleased as well.

    I have a 22 inch 12v traveller, faulty at first and had to be returned twice before I got one that works. the menu s are hard work and the DVD a bit noisey, has been ok now for three years. Also have an Avtex in the bedroom Much better bit of kit .

    Bought one late last year, poorest viewing angle I have ever seen on a modern tv, we have to have the brightness up to 92% just to be able to see something.

    Will probably bin it when we can find a better one. Wouldn't even recommend it to an enemy, let alone a friend.

    Is it a
    Is it a standard one or the Traveller? Seem to get move negative reviews on the standard ones, have been very pleased with our traveller one of the best small TV's we have had.
    Don't buy a Marks & Sparkes TV then they are Cello's.

    We have both a Cello and an Avtex. The Cello is fine but the Avtex is much better. Both beat the spots of other cheap TVs

    We have a Cello, and very happy with it, good picture quality and very good range on vision angle. Sound quality isn't the greatest, but this is a small TV in a motorhome. It is wired into the stereo system if we want cinema quality, but we rarely do.

    Once bought one, sound crap, viewing angle crap, tv itself gave up after about 3 months, could not be bothered returning, bought an Avtex at brummie Mh show in October it's really good.

    I have just bought ( haven't collected it yet) a 22 inch Cello. Can you connect Bluetooth speaker to it?

    Had my Cello 22" for at least 5 years, works well. Yes, sound not the best I have ever heard, just plug it into van system or quality portable speakers if required. As far as I'm concerned, the TV works fine, it's the crap programs that spoil it!! Still, you can always put in a Fools and Horses DVD to cheer yourself up! :happy:
