    I bought a 19" Cello TV/DVD recently and am perfectly happy with it. Full HD Freeview tuner, also has satellite tuner, good picture and sound OK. Got it direct from the makers from here . And £100 cheaper than the one you are looking at. They also do a 22" HD one but that was too big for my space.

    The only problem is that sound is not brilliant but we just bought a pair of USB speakers to plug in the back and they're fine,had it for four years now.

    If you are using ADGUARD then if you disable it for 30 seconds Amazon links will show OK. Don't know if that is true of other adblockers or not.

    Make sure you know the difference between FREESAT and FREE TO AIR..
    For some it does not matter but as you used the term FREESAT ;)

    The one you listed is FREE TO AIR,, In fact I am not even sure if there are any with FREESAT as thats just a UK service and very limited to TV manufacturers..
    As long as you know.. You will still get almost all same channels just not under a FREESAT guide and layout...

    I'm still not sure what size to get as I don't get the new MH until sept
    Avtex are expensive but get great reviews & after sales service
    Cello cheaper but mixed reviews,bad sound viewing angle
    Vision plus mid price but only 2 reviews on Amazon

    You get what you pay for. We have had Avatex tv's in both caravan and Motorhome.

    I had a problem with the DVD drive, thay arranged for it to be picked up, repaired it and sent it back. It went again so they replaced the whole TV with the latest model, which we are using now 5 years after replacement.

    Yes it is more expensive but quality of picture and service are second to none

    We got a pack of cards and a luxury scrabble who needs telly!!
    Actually,we have a cello tv/dvd with freeview and its fine. But as you might guess,we don't use it much. The sound is ok and never had a problem with the tuning.

    You will not get a good sound from a small, light and thin TV - the physics involved doesn't work. There was a problem a while back with sound on some Cello models (more to do with stuttering I think), but mine is as good as I need.

    The viewing angle on my new 19" Cello is much better than the viewing angle of the 16" Avtex it replaced. When looking at reviews you need to be careful as to the model being referred to - Cello make a large and confusing number of models. Ours is the C19EFFV2T2 in their Traveller range.

    We are just looking at tv's to watch films from hard drive. Is there any reason we can't get a normal domestic tv?
    Only watch 1 film a night and plenty of power.

    Normal domestic tv is fine for your use. As long as you have an EHU or 240v as most domestic TVs don't have a 12v input
