    Need help.
    ano ba dapat ang bilin, ano ba dapat ang tinitingnan? medyo kulang kulang ako pag dating sa tech e.
    What website can i visit for reviews on TVs that we have here.
    lots of cheap lcd tv's out in the market, but whats the catch?
    i see them priced below thirty or above 50k for the 32 inch models.

  3. If you are after and LCD TV and not a plasma, it might be a good to know what you are going to use it for. What I mean is what sorts will you be plugging into it. I suppose, you might want to at least have 2 HDMI ports, one for the home theatre and another for the digital cable TV (unless of course all is connected in one, which is not the case in mine). I got a sharp 46 inch HDTV with built in HDTV receiver for it to capture free digital TV (if there is one). All other ports are for hooking up a digicam, a PC. Pixels is a good start. If you have a 1028 pixel or higher, that appears to be good.

    all brands are claiming almost the same features. i would suggest you go to a good store, and let them compare in your own eyes the best pictures when place them side by side. pinoydvd.com is the best site for me for reviews and other info. Sight & Sound at Shang-Edsa, is a great store where i purchased my Toshiba LCD a big difference in price compare to other known appliances and department store. i bought my Toshiba 37in a year ago at only 45k, until now its price at Automatic Center is at 65k, the time i bought mine the price was 75k. in choosing size that should depend on your viewing distance, check this site:

    hope this would help.

    i recently purchased 3 lg lh20 32inch lcd for around 24t each. so far so good for my pupose which is mostly tv and dvd use. i also purchased a pioneed dvd player with hdmi out to hookup on the hdmi input on the lcd. the pioneer player also has a 1080 upscaling mode that upgrade my old dvd collection. i just cant justify spending a lot more on features i wont be able to use here.
     
  6. Just be aware that when comparing LCD TV in stores, these TV's are adjusted to the type of lighting in store, which may not be similar to the lighting at home. So in store, some may actually look sharper, brighter but when you get home, it just doesnt look the same so just dont be too disappointed. In the end, you can fine tune things. Again HDTV is dependent on the broadcast if you have HD signal or have your theatre system in high definition, then you get most out of the TV.

    at Sight and Sound, they will have one source of video disc and player and set all the the TV's settings at default or you can request at the same value of color settings. fairly you will see the different picture quality. one thing also, HDTV plasma or LCD, should be calibrated after 60 days and will give more satisfying color quality. this is usually a free service from the store, which like the Sight & Sound did.

    cignal tv has many hd channels, naka cignal kami ngayon pero di pako nag avail ng hd service nila cos hindi pa hd ready tv namin.

    me nagsabi sakin ang maganda daw bilhin lcd compared to plasma kasi ang plasma dapat madilim talaga ang room or else ngets.
     
  13. Good on you! Time to get HD content for you to appreciate true HD quality

    Yep. I have also 1TB external hard drive loaded with HD movies and 320GB internal for my downloaded tv series. I'm still looking for funds to to intall a bluray rom, it's capable and has space inside the consul for that purpose. So it would be the exclusive source of multi-media in my HT.

    i think same store where you bought yours, though the Popcorn wasn't bought there. sure, but i think we have almost the same titles since it came from the same store. my set-up is 6yrs old already, i don't go with Bose speakers, bitin talaga. though my set-up has only Definitive Technology satellite speakers i'm contented with it since i have only small space, though it's open, wala pang house na may pang dedicated HT room eh:crying:, kayang punuin ng sound. DefTech satellite speakers are much cheaper than Bose, and greater sound.
