Sony's 'budget' pink LCD TV

If your children are called Tarquin and Tamara and you live in a house with more than two floors, this is the sort of TV you'll be interested in giving this Christmas.

Sony

Christmas is coming and that means colored TVs and other electrical goods. We saw this pink Sony Bravia coming from a mile away, and we don't just mean because it's brightly colored--each year parents seem to give their children increasingly extravagant gifts in increasingly ludicrous colors .

When we were nippers, we used to get awesome presents, but they were generally small and cost a little bit less than today's child-pleasers. For example, we'd get an Optimus Prime toy, or if our parents weren't pacifists, maybe a Megatron. We also didn't have TVs in our bedrooms, but these days it seems that every 5-year-old in the land has a goggle-box in their room. Hence the pink Bravia.

Of course, it's a great TV--the S series includes good budget models--but we mean the word "budget" in a relative sense, because let's not pretend the word means the same to Sony as it does to, say, Goodmans. This TV goes for 445 pounds, or about $920. Yes, that's right: It's a 20-inch TV for the same price as you could get a 32-inch one for.

The KDL-20S3070U has one HDMI, a PC input, component in and some Scart sockets. Obviously it's happy with high-definition material up to 1080i, and will make a good companion for games consoles such as the PS3 or Xbox 360, especially if your children have one of those in their bedrooms too. The lucky beggars.

So if your children are called Tarquin and Tamara and you live in a house with more than two floors, this is the sort of TV you'll be interested in giving this Christmas. To prove its posh credentials, Sony calls it "Fuchsia Pink" instead of just "Pink." If you're a regular Joe with kids called Frank and Sarah, you'll probably just want to get a slightly more sensible TV for the kiddies--that's if you really think letting them watch I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here in bed is a good idea.
