Manta Super Slim Digital Freeview TV : Very good for the money


Nice neat little telly very light good picture sound better than expected wide viewing angle does not go dark if sit at the side can also play mpeg4 movies on usb pen drive not tride my 500gb hd yet, easy setup only thing would have liked to change would be the gloss screen for a matt one as get a lot of reflection in caravan off the windows apart from that five stars.

An excellent tv with multiple interfaces, very good value. Sound and picture first class.

Limited angle for viewing and backward facing speakers. I was looking for a tv for my caravan. This one does the job, but that is about all you can say. With the speakers at the back, the volume has to be wound up quite high to be able to hear it, why oh why do manufacturers insist on this silly design?.The quality of the sound is acceptable, if only they would put the tiny speakers at the front. The screen has very limited angle of view, however, once you get the angle correct, it gives quite a reasonable quality picture. Certainly far better than a leading brand i saw in a local shop. This had a 19″ screen but the freeview picture was far worse than i get on my 26″ panny. Despite my comments, we kept this tv as it is an ideal size for the caravan and provides good enough results for the little tv we watch when caravanning.

For the cost of this tv this is an excellent purchase, we’ve even used it as a back. For the cost of this tv this is an excellent purchase, we’ve even used it as a back up tv at home with no problems.

As described and works well.

Works great in the campervan and the picture’s good and crisp.

Versalitility is the strongest feature. The variety of inputs available is excellent. The picture quality in hd is very good, but the viewing angle is very limited. A 10 degree vertical or horizontal change is enough to seriously alter the perceived brightness and contrast. But if only one fixed viewer this is acceptable. The space available to insert connectors is limited and causes problems with the more rigid and larger cable ends. Electrical tests indicated that the stated power requirements and interfaces were as specified. No screws were supplied to secure the display to the base and no instructions supplied. Without these screws the display is unstable, but when fitted, the stand was adequate.

Perhaps the sound could be better but i have not got fully down to finely. I have had this tv for about a month now and it is very satisfactory indeed. Perhaps the sound could be better but i have not got fully down to finely adjusting it as yet. Overall it is much better than the previous one we had in the kitchen – bigger and far better picture – it seems to be able to operate on a low signal very well. So for the price paid it is a very good product.

Great value, does what it’s supposed to.

Bought this as an ‘occasional’ tv to use in our family caravan (now that strictly has started). Picture quality is good, on screen menus are fast and responsive. Delivery was very fast and the item is well packaged. Haven’t used the dvd player yet. The sound isn’t great (it’s ok ish for a small tv of this price) but for a caravan or boat etc i don’t suppose you can go wrong for the money. Comes with a 240v supply and 12v supply cables. You’ll need a coaxial cable if you want to use with an ariel. Apparently if you stick a usb drive in it you can pause live tv etc which is handy for loo trips.

Great product for the price, use it in the camper van. Am able to play films from a hdd on it, ideal for my needs.

Although quite frankly the 12v/240v power plug could have been designed better. It sticks out and is unsightly. This review is for the manta led1503 led tv, manufactured in poland. When i opened the box, i found that all necessary cables were included, although quite frankly the 12v/240v power plug could have been designed better. It sticks out and is unsightly. I cannot use it in my campervan as it then impedes the other cables so just use the cigar lighter attachment. It does include aduio/video leads as well which are a bonus. The tv itself is well protected and appears to be solidly constructed.

This is just what i wanted for my kitchen. It sits nicely on the worktop under the wall cupboards. I play it through my sky box, which is the best option where i live. The picture is excellent when viewed directly in front, but move slightly to the side and there is less clarity. But it’s no hardship to turn the tv to face wherever i am in the kitchen as it’s very light. The sound is a bit strange even after adjusting the treble and bass, but you would expect this with a small speaker. Overall i think it’s a good buy and i’m very pleased with it.

Budget tv but does job fine. Arrived with a speaker loose inside the body but when fixed and fitted inside our motorhome the volume was suprisingly loud and full for speakers so small. Screen clarity good and very easy to set up. Doesn’t play wma but does play videos from a usb stick. Won’t set your world alight but then we don’t want a super expensive tv inside our motorhome for someone to break in to and steal.

And why does it seem impossible to go from a “tv guide” screen to a chosen channel by simply pressing a button, rather than memorizing the channel number and selecting it on leaving the screen?. The user manual isn’t detailed enough to be really useful in this and possibly other connections.

Photograph superior when seen from directly in entrance, very shadowy when considered at an angle. Unfirtunately the one i returned only had 1 speaker performing ,but like all these sets with the small speakers the seem good quality isn’t superior ,extremely hard to hear when only a single speaker will work. Shame as i was if not satisfied with the products. I really feel if they secured the speakers they would not vibrate so substantially. Manta led1503 led tv – led tvs.

I expended several hours checking evaluations because of destructive remarks about the image and also the true sizing of the tv. Acquiring to in shape into a 28cm extensive slot, makers explained 27. five huge, but purchasers in solution to concerns varied from 40 to 38. 5, whihc it is, and suits flawlessly. With two of us stting at kitchen desk to see, the photograph is excellent, and even leaning much to one particular aspect it nevertheless appears as excellent as our other sets. The audio is pretty tinny, but very loud – unlike our preceding nine inch which was also far too tranquil. Obtaining acquired a pair of artistic mains-run speakers for that, they now are plugged into the manta and give clear and, if needed, blasting audio. Dvd playback and usb memory adhere recording are excellent.

Good tv , now equipped into our motorhome. We can watch a video while waiting for ferries, (it will save us winding up the sat dish).

First of all ,the sound is tinny. Secondly, if you are utilizing a scart socket, (i use a freesat box) it is nearly not possible to match the scart socket for the reason that the hole is far too little earlier mentioned the speaker at the again. Why they have built it this way i do not know. I experienced to re-engineer the scart direct to get it to match and even then it barely does.

Wonderful obvious and sharp photograph quality. First class minimal tv established, beautiful apparent and sharp picture high-quality, just correct for the considerably constrained place in our kitchen. Quite delighted with it, strongly reccomend.

Great photograph high quality,would be greater if you the place able to tilt monitor.
