    For a couple hundred more you could get a samsung with 3 year warranty. Much better spec'd and much better TV

    I won't give it a neg cause I suppose its a bargain for 32" but geez thats scrapping the bottom of the barrel. Anyone know how tv viewing would look on that reso?

  • Mmmmm inbuilt HD tuner with SD native resolution. Almost pointless… almost. There are quite a few places selling 720p (1366x768) res LCD TVs for $7-800.

    Using "inbuilt HD tuner" is deceptive because its not a HD tv.

    http://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/8983 Something like that would be easily worth the extra $100

    • Mate exactly what I was think. Wtf is the point of a HD tuner on this tv?

      • To be able to view things like OneHD and other content which is only on HD channels is a good feature, even if the TV can't show them as HD.

  • If you want an average 32" cheap, this the best lcd.

    • below average you mean.. that resolution is barely better than a CRT.. and you'll get better colours from a cheap CRT

    • +1 vote

      It's a plasma actually, so watch out for the burn on these cheap models…

  • A whole lot of critical comments but not one negative vote - the deal itself is fine for what it is.

    The point being is that the product specs dont match most peoples expectations in todays market.

    Congratulations to all above for the insights this is great sharing and very helpful to all here.

  • yeh its a good deal

  • For non tech wiz's like me and not much spare cash for luxuries I wouldn't turn my nose up at it! LOL I'm watching TV on an 8 year old LG 68cm so geez what resolution would that be :)
    It's usually true you get what you pay for I s'pose.

  • I bought a 32" 4:3 CRT for $400 over 3 years ago now and I thinks that's still a better deal than this. 852 x 480 is the same vertical resolution with just some extra columns of pixels.

    Ok, so it has some merit, like those dodgey 42" wide screens that have 1024x768 for less than $900, but I think they're only suited for the walls of pubs and fast food restaurants.
