Digital television (DTT) is a telecommunication system for broadcasting and receiving moving pictures and sound by means of digital signals, in contrast to analogue signals used by analogue (traditional) TV. DTV uses digital modulation data, which is digitally compressed and requires decoding by a specially designed television set, or a standard receiver with a set-top box, or a PC fitted with a television card.

For the purposes of this article we want to take a look at purchasing a new Flat Screen Television and in this case the television in question is the Goodmans GTVL26W17HDF.

The type of Tuner for this TV is Analogue and Digital and the Goodmans is available from a wide variety of outlets.

All these points being taken into consideration, how would we view the Goodmans GTVL26W17HDF?

The most obvious place to start with as far as TV’s are concerned would be the picture quality and our score here would be 6 out of 10, and for the sound quality we would rate it at 6 out of 10. Another useful aspect to review is the availability and number of relevant connections and our score here would be 8 out of 10. If we take a look at the overall “featureability” our score would be 8 out of 10 and for ease of use and overall value for money we would give it, 8 out of 10 and 6 out of 10 respectively.

Finally our overall opinion would be that this TV has a great amount to commend it in a number of ways but sadly we feel is let down by the actual perfromnce of the picture which sadly for a Flat Screen TV is rather important we feel.

It is extremely unlikely given the variety and range of makes and models available that you will not be able to find something to match your tastes or budget.
