Cello C93114DVB Review – A Full HD TV For Everybody

Maybe it’s not as famous as Samsung, Sony or LG but Cello is definitely a brand worth considering when you’re looking for a good quality TV. Not only their TVs are qualitative products with impressive specs but they also come considerably cheaper than other similar products, so you basically end up paying for the features and not the brand. The popular misconception, though, is that only products coming from renowned manufacturers are qualitative and reliable products; let’s see if the Cello C39114DVB TV can demolish this myth.

It’s important that we highlight the fact that we are talking about a budget TV here and not a premium one, so all comparisons will be made against products from the same range. That being said, we’ll start by saying that the Cello C39114DVB stands out from the crowd right from the start with an elegant design that’s similar to LG’s older TVs – clean lines, a rectangular base and a glossy black finish. The frame around the display is slightly thicker, though, but this is quite a common aspect in cheap TVs.

More important than looks, however, are the screen size and image quality. With a 39 inch LCD display, the Cello C39114DVB is obviously not the TV that will make you think you are at the cinema; still, it’s not a TV that will disappoint either, as image quality is surprisingly good, despite its lack of any sophisticated filters or image enhancement engines such as the case of TVs coming from renowned brands.

A noticeable aspect about this TV is the manufacturer’s attention to details, fitting the TV with just the right features and placing everything exactly where it should be. We’re talking about the connectivity ports, located on bottom side of the TV’s rear panel, facing downwards. This placement is very convenient if the TV is mounted on a wall via a fixed wall bracket, providing easy access to the ports and ensuring an adequate position for the cables. This might seem a small detail but try fitting an USB thumb drive to a TV that’s mounted on a wall and has the ports pointing to the wall and you’ll see what we’re talking about.

Since we were talking about USB ports, we should mention that the TV comes with an USB port that, besides the classical multimedia function, also provides DVR functionality. This is a very nice feature to have and even though it requires you to buy the storage medium separately, it doesn’t limit you to a certain size as the integrated DVR systems usually do.

The TV comes with an integrated Freeview tuner, but if that’s not enough for you, you’ll be happy to notice the manufacturer’s attention to details once again, providing a remote control that can also control Sky Digital, Sky Plus and Sky HD Plus satellite boxes.
