    if it was full HD it would be a much better deal… $50 more for Full HD is worth it

      Full HD - on a 32 inch tv? If you sit that close to notice it, your eyes will go square (well, so my mum used to tell me)

      • +5 votes

        Absolutely correct, and if you watch 16:9 content on a 1024x768 resolution they'll actually go rectangular! :o

        You know you can buy 27" or 30" monitors that go up to 2560x1600 right? 1366x768 looks like crap on a 32" TV. You get what you pay for I suppose but I would pay the extra money for a decent 1080p 32" TV.

        •  

          Monitor =/= TV dude, the viewing purposes & distances are intentionally different; hence the different resolutions and prices.

          Flashi007 is right though, the human eye cannot perceive the difference between 720p & 1080p at optimal viewing distance for a 32" set; or even a 42" set for that matter! :)

          If you're sitting as close to a tv as you do a monitor, then you deserve to go blind.

          Let's hope you don't indulge in the other activities rumoured to make you go blind (guess all red blooded teenage males are at highest risk)

          fair call

          maybe CVonV should go back, not get a refund, but invest some money in a term deposit/shares/justin beiber - that way, he can have his TV and some extra cash as well

    $249 will last u a year.

    For 32" no full HD really doesn't matter.

    •  

      last time I bought a freezer from Aldi only last for two months. It took me 2 months to get a refund(after they refused to fix it). Their after sale services (from AWA) are terrible. I would pay extra $100 for a decent brand.

        Shoulda got a Full HD freezer, clearly.

    Exaaaaaaaaaactly what I needed. Perfect timing. THANKS OP!

    DickSmith is selling its TV for 248. Which one is better?

  •  

    I'm a bit dumb here, but can anyone tell me why "2 x HDMI inputs"? Isn't one enough???

    •  

      You might have a PS3/Bluray/Dvd/Computer/Xbox/whatever, so 2 might not even be enough!

  •  

    Hi anyone know can use for pc monitor?

    • +1 vote

      It would look bad, trust me. Very low res for that size as a monitor. But yes it's possible. Most newer PCs have HDMI or DVI outputs (you can get a DVI to hdmi adapter, however it won't transfer sound).

    •  

      only useful for watching movies on your PC really, text is too hard to read otherwise.

  •  

    does this one do mkv files?

  •  

    mkv doubtful, a + for me, i have a viewsonic 42 full hd lcd and i rekn my old samsung 42 hd lcd looked just as good if not better, i rarely see full hd as being better for everyday use tv, dvd, avi, mkv etc. As far as quality of build my mate has a sony 42/40 full hd lcd and he rekns my viewsonic looks better, dunno bout that but anyways does the job 4 sure. id say a + for this cheap 32 and a - for full hd hahahaha, enjoy the bargain lol

  •  

    can someone comment on the quality of this VS the dick smith $248 lcd tv:

    http://dicksmith.com.au/product/GE6606/dick-smith-81cm-32-qu...

    The Dick Smith 32" High Definition LCD TV comes packed with all the features you'll need. With a built-in HD DVB-T tuner, screen resolution of 1366 x 768, Nicam / AV Stereo and HDTV ready with 1080P (via input) it's the perfect TV. It also features a 16:9 widescreen display and 1500:1 contrast ratio.

  •  

    I have gone through the spec of both TV's, here is what i see

    The ALDI product has 3000:1 contrast ratio, the Dick Smith 1500:1 meaning the ALDI TV is brighter and better at color reproduction.
    The ALDI TV has PVR Functionality which lets you record and pause live TV to a USB stock, the Dick Smith one does not. ALso the ALDI TV is 4 star rated while the Dick Smith product is only two star according to their website, so the power consumption is a little lower on the DSE model. Given all this and ALDI's better return policy (60 days no questions asked) I think it clear to say the ALDI proudct represents better value..

    Does anyone have the Dick Smith TV? i think it has been out since Xmas so a slightly older model?

  •  

    The Dick Smith 32" HD LCD TV is rated 4.5 stars by our customers. Check out all the reviews here: http://dicksmith.com.au/product/GE6606/#Reviews

    •  

      They are both great TVs but I think the Vivid has a slight advantage.

  •  

    Hot Damn! Just when you think these things can't possibly get any cheaper it hits you in the face! 400+ ,350 then sub 300, 280, now 250!…I've been chronologing the price reductions of 32" TVs for a few years. I ended up selling my 32" but if they get any lower I might buy a new one for the bedroom, which would be far better for movies and gaming than a 22" PC monitor. Will go and sniff it out next week, as they won't last very long at this price.

  •  

    I have seen the 32 inch DSE one at dicksmith today, compared to the Full Hd LG, and sony next to it. It had more vibrant colors, and viewing the pixels up close, I really could not the difference. I would not even been able to pick out it was only hd if it wasn't listed. =)

  •  

    I actually bought 4 of the dick smith 32" tv's about 3 months ago when they were $279.
    They are a great little tv, fantastic picture quality

  •  

    so if I get to aldi at lunch time/2pm on Thurs to get one of these…do you think they will have any left?

    •  

      Depends on the store, but there is a good chance there won't be.

      I would go in the morning so you don't kick yourself for not getting one.

  •  

    Anyone know…Is the Aldi TV wall mountable? Comes with wall mount screws?

  •  

    So in saying they r not FULL hd i dont need a set top box do i ?? just picture quality is diff yeh?

  •  

    Walked in and walked out with a TV at 9:30am today @ Mt Druitt Aldi.
    There were 2 large pallets and they seemed to have been selling very fast whilst I was there, as most people in the long queue had 1-2 TVs loaded onto their trolleys.

  •  

    DAMN could not get myself to Aldi until 7pm tonight and all sold out at my local store. Anyone know of any stores in Brisbane with stock left??? Or should I giveup? :-(

    •  

      You can ask the manager at the store. At least at Chermside Aldi, he seems to know exactly which stores have it and which don't.

      And no, Chermside don't have any stock for it :)

  •  

    I think Ashgrove may still have some stock on-site when I was there an hour ago. You may want to give them a try tmr morning.

    According to this http://www.energyrating.gov.au/appsearch/tv_srch.asp?size=16... , the TV (AT-32HD1) seems to also have LED backlite, which was not advertised by Aldi.

  •  

    I got one, set it up today! works great. good picture quality! easy to setup perfecto! really cheap too

    •  

      oh! when and where did you buy it? I would like to get one. but most of it is out of stock already.=(
