Cheap LCD TV.

I am looking for a LCD tv, around 19 inches.
I don't need anything amazing, cheaper the better. It is for my little brother to play some games on, so he won't notice the difference between contrast ratios and resolution.
This is the cheapest TV I could find http://direct.tesco.com/product/images/?R=204-4482 I know its not a good brand, but again its got a kid who ain't gonna be able to tell the difference.
Can I have some recommendation please. I want it within £120. Thanks.

Re: Cheap LCD TV.

Can I trust ebay when purchasing a TV? If its ok then wow, Samsungs for that cheap. I would get it.
I think 16" will be a bit too small, but thanks for the suggestion.

Re: Cheap LCD TV.

Thanks for the suggestions so far. I like the Hitatchi, are there any catches with the warranty since it is refurbished? Control and everything come with it?
