TV DVD combis - televisions with built-in DVD players - are an appealing solution if you're struggling for space and don't want a DVD player cluttering up your living space.
Great for holidaymakers, caravan owners and students at university, combis are more portable than regular TVs.
Most combis come with Freeview tuners and some have advanced features, such as Freeview HD, app support for Netflix, BBC iPlayer and Facebook, and built-in sound bars.
We no longer test TV DVD combis. In this guide we'll highlight the features worth looking for, how much you should spend and help you decide if you'd be better off with a separate TV and player.
Since they are generally small - it's rare to find one with a screen larger than 32 inches - you shouldn't need to pay much for TV DVD combi. DVD players are very cheap when bought separately, so adding one to a TV won't increase the cost much either.
The big-name brands, such as LG, Panasonic, Samsung and Sony, got out of the market years ago and now only budget brands bother.
All this means is that you shouldn't need to spend more than £300 and it's possible to spend less than £100 if you're looking for one with a 20-24-inch screen.
TV DVD combis are great if you want a simple and affordable product. They're worth considering if you're after a TV to play DVDs or watch television in a second living room, study or kitchen. They're great presents for a son or daughter heading off to university, or a grandchild who loves to watch DVDs in their bedroom.
Caravan owners can buy a power adaptor to use their TV DVD combi away from home.
If you're after a TV for the living room or a model with a screen size over 32 inches, you may be better off buying a high quality TV and a standalone DVD player, or even upgrading to Blu-ray. Combis excel on price and simplicity, but they don't always give you the best possible quality when compared to a regular TV. For some alternative options, take a look at our page, which features models from Samsung, LG, Sony and other big-name brands.
You can pick up a combi where you'd usually see standard TVs - think John Lewis, Currys PC World, Tesco and Argos. They're typically cheaper than standard TVs. Top-end models can go higher than £300, with premium sets including web browsers, apps and remote control functionality for Apple and Android smartphones.
You'll see the likes of Avtex and Hitachi, along with retailer brands including Logik (Currys PC World), Alba and Bush (Argos) and Technika (Tesco).
