Cello C40Sfs 40” Superfast Smart Full HD TV – Poor sound quality

Very good product at a great price.

Picture quality is not good enough in this environment and frankly the sound is so bad i will only use this tv as a last resort.

Very good sound a bit finney but would buy again.

My only complaint would be the sound quality of the tv’s speakers, surely cello could’ve done better. There are plenty state of the art british hifi company’s that make great transducers that cello could’ve consulted to design better one’s than the one’s they’ve used for this tv. Other than that, impressive picture quality, easy to use interface, and i’m glad they’ve included a digital optical output on the side of the tv so i can connect the tv to an amplifier with proper speakers.

I have rated this on what my neighbour has told me as the tv was purchased for him.

I would have given this a four-star review were it not for the awful sound quality. The picture is excellent and just an extra £ spent on providing a better speaker would have made all the difference. As it is, this little tv is not a bad buy as long as you are happy to revisit your childhood days, when you and your pals communicated with one another using two cocoa tins connected with a length of string.

Bought for the motor home after reading the reviews. Has lived up to expectation so far, easy to tune the tv and cds / dvds all play. Haven’t tried the usb option as yet. The only downside, this didn’t come with a 12v lead to plug into the 12v socket, instead it had the 240v lead with transformer built in, therefore, to use when off grid, another lead is needed.

This was the only small tv with a built in dvd we could find. Pictures quite good but my god the sound is terrible. Tried adjusting treble and bass but even going from 0% to 100% on both made no difference. My cats purring drowned out the sound. Gonna have to try it with a soundbar.

Small screen but really clear and really to install.

Very light, good picture and lots of connections. But connecting to a £20-30 bluetooth sound box makes it still very good value and a good set up. Shame about the sound quality but don’t let that put you off.

Despite being surprisingly light, this seems to do everything you’d want from a smart tv. Classy pointer/mouse for navigating on-screen. Does timeshift (with a memory stick, not provided) – which is more than samsung does for £40 more. Some glitch when we miracast a phone to the tv: it becames stuck on the phone and we couldn’t recover the tv stations. But we’ll get used to it, i guess. Overall, impressed (and it seems miles better than the equivalent 40′ samsung which we sent back).

Very good picture and easy to initiate and only let down by very tinny speakers.

Seems good in all respects and delivered early.

Bought for camping trips but set up and tried in the home and tried in the car with a 12v cello power cable (purchased separately). Easy to set up, sharp picture and the sound isn’t bad for such a small and reasonably priced television. It has a full size remote which the unit responds quickly to. The dvd player works well, good picture and runs quietly.

Well pleased with this item works great in the tourer nice clear picture quality lovely and light in weight.

Bought it for the kitchen, plenty big enough for our needs but some quality is tinny and poor.

Good definition picture but be aware the sound, as others have said is ‘tinny’. I now have it connected optically to my sound system and the audio is much, much better.

Made in britain – great, smart casing – great, clear picture – great but oh dear me – the sound is much like i am playing an old ipod on its own speaker in a tin can.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Good value TV with built in DVD player and freeview
  • Excellent picture. Shame about the sound.
  • Early days – but so far very impressed

The unit i received had been opened and used before, however all the parts were well repackaged. The setup did not go into ‘first installation mode’ as it have obviously been set up before. The unit did operate in english so i tried to have it search automatically for channels but the systems offered were all european (hungary, luxembourg, germany etc. I tried several before finding that the netherlands setup gathered all the freeview channels and included hd channels which my larger tv does not access. Easy to mount on a wall bracket and i am so far pleased with it. Adding a low cost sound bar would solve the sound quality problem. I seem to have been given a slightly cheaper price by amazon who possibly knew it had been opened before.
