I've been in love with the Bravia range of HDTVs. 42" would be awesome, but it costs around R13k, which would take a bit of saving. The 32" is roughly around half that price. Should I rather save up and get the 42"?

I got the 32" Bravia T series and dont have any complaint at all. 32" is big enough for my living room at this stage, if move to bigger house some time then I'll get a 42" and move the 32" to either bedroom or braai room if i have one.

Isn't the 40" one 13k.

Go for the Sinotec 42" full HD. HUGE thread here on it, and seems like 99% of buyers are thrilled with it. Only costs about R8 - R9k!

Yeah I've noticed Sinotec around and at very competitive prices compared to the big brand names like Samsung, Sony and LG.

Question is are they any good?

It's not a SONY.

People in this thread - http://mybroadband.co.za/vb/showthread.php?t=85797 - compared the Sinotec right next to other "name brand" displays and watched full HD media/connected laptops, and said the Sinotec comes out better than some!

The point is you're getting full HD 42" for R2000 more than a Sony/LG/Samsung 32". With one of the best 5yr warranties in the country. Sony/LG/Samsung warranties are just one year. :sick:

That's a whole lot of good points there. :)

I have seen full HD 32" TVs (Game's Logik). However, that LG says "Resolution : 1366 x 768" - so could be a typo (full HD = 1920x1080). Unless it is "full HD ready" meaning it accepts full HD input and downscales to HD.

I would still save for a little longer and get the Sinotec 42". If you're using this screen as a PC monitor, then perhaps consider a full HD 32", 42" could make your neck a bit sore. :D
