Same brands din ang pinagpipilian ko last week ng binilihan ko ang sister ko ng LCD TV. Walang available na Skyworth sa Abenson kaya Devant 24iTV6 ang pinili ko...I chose Devant because (a) picture quality is at par with LG, Sony (b) USB supports JPEG, MP3, MKV and (c) price at P8995.

From what ive learned here in PDVD. Skyworth is actually an OEM. They are known to manufacture or supply parts for DeVant, Avision, etc. I'd honestly go for Skyworth if im shopping around in the not so mainstream branded display.

Not hoping to sound condescending,IMHO I would not buy any of the 2.iirc may Toshiba before (24hv10 ba?) which was advertised as being under 10k.

Not sure if the specs are what you're looking for,but I'd go branded anytime,even if I have to shell out a bit more :)

with a 40k budget. You can get a pana 50x50 at our trusted stores here in pdvd. You can also look at the 51inch panels from Samsung if you like...


I would suggest you visit sns and ask for a demo of your 50inch choices... You get peace of mind when it comes to warranty of your purchased unit.

Thanks bro.  But negative kami sa Plasma because our living room in the province is kinda maliwanag and very high ceiling pa.  So LED talaga is the option.  One thing that caught my attention with Skyworth is they are giving a 2 year warranty. I have to double check with Devant.

no problem... skyworth and devant are decent brands... the 2 year warranty would be a plus factor and you must also give importance in the store where you will get them... Good luck...

Not sure if P40K budget can get you a decent 50" LED.  Is there? 

One good brand that I can suggest is a 42" Avision LED which sells for lower than your budget.  Lahat ng bumili ng Avision all have positive things to say about it.  Alam ko meron dito sa pdvd mga reviews ng Avision. 

I have a Devant 32" LCD that I have been using for almost 3 years now.  No complaints ;D

Thank you all for the feedbacks. I guess either way ok naman ata sila since 2 years ang Warranty.

i also believe that there's a 120hz 46 inch avision LED that is bundled with a 32 inch avision LED that S&S sells for P36k. you may want to call Sir Vic or SnS for this.

I accompany my cousin to buy a 32 led tv at western, he choose devant after all, sales talk, price, at syempre pang hatak ng sales ang freebies na htib. Sabi ko nalang bahala ka sakin lang mas okay ang branded ika nga kilala na sa industria, in short naiuwi na sa bahay' mounting then viewing. After  2 days ayun patay na, the devant has malfunctioning na, only the led indicator light is on' wala na picture. I told him  bring it back to western to replace, much better if other brand if they will consider. Di daw pwede, devant parin pinalit.

DeVant - marketing company, sells LEDs made by others

I started this thread to weight things out....but I ended buying a Samsung LEDT TV 40EH5000 at 26,000.00 without freebies....very satisfied so far....buti na lang hindi ako nagpadal sa mga salestalk sa devant....

Alphalima - sobrang BS naman yun on the part of western. Nothing could have lawfuly stopped him from demanding for a refend or changing that to another brand. This is exactly why i will always buy from s&s.

Nallasartal - great choice there! I was very happy with my 40eh5300. (Basically the same as yours, but only with smart tv features) Ganda ng black levels nyan for an led.)

i have both brands:
brand:                date purchased       
devant 37" LCD  - mid 2007    - 100% working
devant 32" LCD  - dec 2010   - 100% working
skyworth 24" LED-  dec 2011   - 100% working
LG 42" Plasma     - March 2012  - 100% working
Skyworth 50E66 LED dec 2012 - so far so good
Skyworth 29" LED  Feb 2013  -so far so good

palagay ko these brands are also good brands , wag lang abusuhin ang paggamit at
kung napapansin ninyong may flactuation sa voltahe sa inyong lugar..then it a must na gumamit kayo ng auto voltage regulators..

Given the prevailing sentiment on this thread,guess it's safe to say chambahan na lang talaga kung lemon or not ang makuha mo.with brands like devant and skyworth,the odds are much much higher na makakuha ka ng lemonade ;D

skyworth po quite popular sa china... like changhong and haier.. respetado po sila na brands dun... i would trust them..

devant... sorry but personally mababa tingin ko sa panel.. i dont know kung panget demo video nila or panget talaga panel... i have no eye for tv.. i am happy with led(others kasi na may eye.. plasma talaga)... pero sa devant.. i can see talaga... pang laban lang full feature.. i have had friends nadin na nagkaproblema sa devant... although... sa devant sale nila nakuha.. mura kuha.. open box.. di tumagal.. baka defective/repaired talaga from the start...

pag bibili ako now.. i would definitely consider a skyworth..
