Re: Bringing tv to Turkey

I would also consider service if there is a problem in the future. I know that we live in a throw-away society but we recently had ours repaired locally for 300TL, fabulous job. Buy Turkish and Cem will fix it.

So my question is firstly is it worth the risk or can I pick up a smart TV at a reasonable price there? Would my UK tv be compatible with the ariel fitting and internet there? Thanks

Re: Bringing tv to Turkey

Always found electricals aftercare very hit n miss in Turkey - with often the smaller stores giving better service

Re: Bringing tv to Turkey

can't fault Beko and arcelik though. In our case the telly is a Sony, the authorised repair shop is independent and authorised for many makes, has just fixed my Panasonic DVD recorder bought in 1999.

Re: Bringing tv to Turkey

Hi, we took a 21 inch flat screen TV/DVD in our hold luggage in July last year. It wasn't new but our old one at Turkey had broken so to keep costs down we brought it over. No problems at either airport and plays great with Amazon fire stick.

Re: Bringing tv to Turkey

I have just bought a 55" and a 42" and at a very reasonable price.
They come to your house and set them up for you and they even fitted both of mine to the wall and didn't charge me for the wall brackets.
Buy them it Turkey

I take it you are being a touch sarcastic, but this is only because you have not read my post correctly.

I made the point that as she already has the TV she needs to factor it into any calculation; if she was starting from a position of not having a TV, then buying here makes sense, but as she owns a new TV that she likes, then dumping it to buy another new TV may not be sensible.
