Stand Installation, Disposal
Stand Installation £ 39.99
We want you to enjoy your new TV as soon as possible. Rather than messing about with cables and following loads of steps in the instruction manual, let us set it up for you. We'll attach the new TV to the stand that it comes with. If you've bought an additional TV stand, there's a separate installation charge. We'll also tune it in, set up any Smart features and connect up all your existing kit. We’ll even take away the bulky packaging.
Disposal £ 14.99
We’ll happily take away your old TV for you and recycle it. All we ask is that it’s unplugged and ready to go. The fee for this service relates to the cost of taking your old TV away on our van rather than the recycling service. If you've paid for installation, we will recycle your old TV free of charge.

Review of the Techwood 55AO4B LED TV
This is a 55” TV in black gloss finish, it has 2 legs, one on either side as opposed to a central mounted support which you will need to bare in mind when deciding if it will be right for your unit. Personally I prefer a centrally mounted support as this provides more options and flexibility however this TV can be wall mounted via its VESA mount fittings on the rear, and as this TV is quite light for its size this may be a favourable option.
For looks we can’t complain and the TV itself is well presented and would not look out of place in most living rooms. The remote control also looks full of functions however at least 2 of the buttons have no use on this model, but two other buttons can be personalised and programmed as you wish. Although the remote looks nice it does feel cheap to the touch. The battery cover is secured by a tiny screw which seems unnecessary and fiddly.
For connections you only have a handful of options however these options will be adequate for most people. There are:
2 x HDMI ports, 1 x USB, Antenna port, 1 x Scart connection, 1x VGA connection, Headphone socket, Digital Audio out, Ethernet port, And 3 RCA jack plugs (Red, white and yellow).
The is also a multi-use control toggle on the rear to operate basic Tv functions without the remote, handy for those times when you simply cannot find the remote but the control options are basic.
This TV comes with built in Freeview HD with access to a handful of digital HD channels such as BBC and Channel 4.
The main image quality of the TV is nothing to write home about. It is acceptable considering the price of the unit, but some may be disappointed, especially if you watch a lot of online video (via another unit such as a games console etc) as in my experience the image quality was disappointing. However, this is after all a budget TV and with TV’s you do get what you pay for. The colours seemed a little washed out to me and not very vibrant even on dynamic mode. Also the TV seems to have an overly sharp image as the TV does not do any processing of its own, this is even more evident when watching videos via the USB and media centre. This is the TV’s lowest performance in my opinion as even with a full HD 1080p source MP4 file the image was very low quality with jaggies immediately obvious and no aliasing at all. I compared the image on this TV with another 1080p screen on my 5-year-old Plasma screen and there is a noticeable difference seemingly due to the way the files are processed.
The sound on this TV is rather tinny, and even with dynamic base selected and a personalised equaliser setting there was no real punch to the sound. As I say you can tweak the sound but to improve it to your own liking but do not expect wonders.
The menus on the TV are basic and straight forward, however I was disappointed with their appearance as the text was not very defined, it is clearly readable and not nice and sharp, and in my opinion the menus are an intrinsic part of the TV and so should use the full potential for the best appearance.
There is an Ethernet port on the rear which seems to be specifically for software updates rather than anything else as this TV has no smart features or apps at all. There is no Wi-Fi option on this TV but again as there are no online features this wouldn’t really be needed.
In summary, if you are not concerned about the best picture quality or sound, or you are purchasing this TV for occasional use or use with a games console, then this could be an option for you. You can’t really argue with the price, however if you are concerned about the quality in any way, then maybe you should save up a little longer for a higher quality TV.
