expired Telefunken 32" (81cm) HD LCD TV for only $559 at Kmart

220

Probably the cheapest price for a 32inch I've seen by far. Obviously not better than the other ones going at $699 - $899, but if you're a poor uni student or just a "strapped-for-extra-cash" person looking for a Digital big-screen TV upgrade, then this might be the TV for you. I tried looking for specs for this, but there doesn't seem to be any on the net (yet). The following are the specs on the catalogue:

Telefunken 32" (81cm) HD LCD TV
• Resolution: 1366 x 768 • HDMI x 2 • Built-in HD tuner • 12 months warranty. TEL32G7. Sorry, no rainchecks.
On sale 1st October - 7th October 2009.

I know that you can get Full HD Lcd TV's at the 800 range, but really at 32 inches it doesn't matter, unless you're using it as a computer monitor, at which point the 1920x1080 resolution becomes a pain in the ass for some people. I think if you're going budget, this is a great TV to start with, then save up your cash later on to get a proper 42+ inch screen with all the hooplah (Full HD, 200hz res, awesome contrast ratio, etc) sometime down the line.

Just my 2 cents.

    These TVs are great for rumpus rooms / visitor rooms / game-console TVs so your kids/you don't occupy the main family TV.

    $559 is a good deal, I can only imagine we'll see the no-name/generic TVs hit $499 by Christmas.

    Wasn't too long ago I remember selling 32" LCDs with worse specs than this one for $1800.

      I think DSE sells their non-full HD Vivo for 599, and on special they already did it for $499, at least twice this year. So, $499 by Christmas is almost certain for generic brand like this. Don't know if it's better quality than this TV though, but personally I'd rather buy from DSE.

    just a note…….
    My son bought one of these to hook up his ps3 via hdmi.
    After lots of calls to telefunken and them testing the tv's, we ended up getting a refund, as the hdmi inputs did not work with ps3, (xbox, etc all ok though)
    Good value tv, (if you don't need for playstation)

      Strange…I wonder why it didn't work?

      •  

        Something to do with HDMI v1.3 incompatible?

  •  

    prob had to reset the reso mode on the ps3

    •  

      nope, tried all tweaks but could not get it to work with ps3
      had to wait a couple of weeks whilst they tweaked at the telefunken factory (wherever that is) and they too could not get it to work.

  •  

    yeah some cheaper end 720p LCD's can't cope with 1080i/p input via HDMI

    •  

      Can you set the PS3 to output 720p with HDMI?

  •  

    It's a good deal (hence the pos vote) but reminder that Telefunken isn't the same brand it used to, well in terms of quality at least.

  •  

    Bought a telefunken cd player a couple years ago and the quality was at the very bottom end - but then all the generic el cheapos are prob very similar
