Title: Devant 32CL900 LCD TV Review
Post by: kalogerz on Jun 24, 2010 at 08:35 AM

Devant 32CL900 LCD TV Review

First of all, i am neither a Devant sales agent, nor a salesman of some appliance store... I'm just a normal consumer like most of you... Disclaimer? :)

I just recently went shopping for an LCD TV that should fit my budget of around P19K-P21K. A 32" inch LCD TV is just the right size for this budget. Also, I have many considerations in mind: it should be of good quality with generous features, but it should also be cheap--giving me the best value for my money.

At first, I thought buying in malls is a no-no since gray market vendors are the thing these days, for they can sell items at mostly half the mall price. But upon comparing their prices, I am surprised that mall prices too are competitive now.

So I went into some forums and researched on which mall store can offer me the best deal. Upon reading further, I discovered that one is Anson's Trinoma--some forumers say that it's a kind of store where you can "haggle" even if it is a 'mall store'--just like buying in Divisoria or tiangge. :D Sir Vic's "Sights & Sounds" in Shangrila is another, with prices that are hard to beat, but too bad it's too far from my place already.

After reading a couple of reviews, i'm initially sold to getting the Panasonic L32C10X--with decent PQ, 2x HDMI, VGA input port, plus an SD card reader for viewing pictures. But upon getting into the showroom, the tides suddenly changed... Well, I guess you know what product I ended up with. ;D

Enough talk and let's get into the review. Let's start with a quick peek on its specs (taken from the brochure):

PRICE: Php 21,000
(SRP for the 'TV only' is P24,950, less P2,500 for straight payment discount, less "Anson's discount". ;) The DVD is priced at P0.00 at the receipt since it's a free item.)


PICTURE QUALITY
The contrast ratio is quite small, but surprisingly, the picture quality is very good! I got satisfied with the picture quality 'out-of-the-box' that I didn't even bother tinkering with the picture settings anymore. The colors are rich & vivid, and the black is black but doesn't lose details caused by very deep blacks compared to other hi-end LCDs. Response time is pretty good in movies, but I would still need to test its speed in video games.

One of the most surprising feature of this LCD TV is the viewing angle! They call their technology "Superior Clear Panel". I won't just say this in words, I want to prove it by showing you some pictures. The specs doesn't lie!:

No washing away of colors, nor darkening!

(http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b164/kalogerz/Etceteras/Devant_32CL900_LCDTV/Devant_32CL900-02.jpg)
Vertical angle - top view at approximately 175 degrees +/-

(http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b164/kalogerz/Etceteras/Devant_32CL900_LCDTV/Devant_32CL900-03.jpg)
Horizontal angle - side view at approximately 175 degrees +/-
(Note: The vases are reflecting on the screen)

SOUND
Another surprising feature is the built-in bottom speakers. The brochure says that the speakers are just 5watts x 2, but in television mode, the sound is surprisingly very loud & crisp even at low volume. When watching movies via the HDMI connection, you'll get a weaker sound though (that's expected due to dynamic range). You can either turn up the volume, or you can purchase better speakers with dedicated amplifiers--the recommended choice. ;)

TV MODE
TV reception is fair to good considering that I only used an 'indoor' Greentek antenna (without booster). I would also like to try out the 'booster-type' indoor antennas once I get to purchase one (i'm eyeing for the Greentek brand). But you will get the best reception if you will use the Baron-type outdoor antennas (as indicated in the manual). If none of these satisfies you, then just get a cable subscription instead. :)

CONNECTIONS
It's got 2 HDMI ports, one on the back & one on the side... which is good for easier accessing. The USB port can read JPEG images & plays MP3s, they call it 'DMP', it stands for Digital Media Player, I think? :D The read speed when viewing photos is fair to good (depending on the size), and it can zoom the photos for panning.

The plethora of connectors, back and sides

Source selection
(Notice the sharp upscaling, sweet!)

OTHER FEATURES
The TVs start-up time is around 8 seconds--from power button press to splash screen, and takes around 12 seconds from power button press to picture & sound start. The remote control range is very impressive, I tested it as far as 30 feet away from the TV and the remote is still working! The power consumption is rated at 130watts if everything is set to maximum.

(http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b164/kalogerz/Etceteras/Devant_32CL900_LCDTV/Devant_32CL900-10.jpg)
The sleek side-panel 'touch' controls

(http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b164/kalogerz/Etceteras/Devant_32CL900_LCDTV/Devant_32CL900-11.jpg)
The TV is protected by a rocker switch (iwas sunog :))

FREEBIES
The free Nextbase NB-895 is an HDMI 1080p-upscaling DVD player. It's valued at around P3,500+ in the malls if bought separately. It upscales movies very well, especially when watching those "jack sparrow" Blue-ray-sort-of DVD copies bought at tiangge, you know what I mean. ;) It can even play DivX movies with SRT subtitles burned on a disc or via USB! and has Karaoke function too (haven't tested that yet though).

(http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b164/kalogerz/Etceteras/Devant_32CL900_LCDTV/Devant_32CL900-08.jpg)
The player's setup menu... upscaling!

(http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b164/kalogerz/Etceteras/Devant_32CL900_LCDTV/Devant_32CL900-09.jpg)
Connectors galore! Notice the player is also protected by a rocker switch.

My only complaint about this player is, the subtitles in the DivX movies only uses a plain white font (no black font lining)--so when you are viewing very bright scenes, you can hardly read the subtitles anymore. But in conventional movies (CDs, DVDs, etc.), the subtitles are normal.

It even comes with a free Nextbase brand HDMI cable (not generic), very good quality! It has gold contacts and its cable is very thick but soft... neat!

A standard, 'fixed' wall bracket is included as well--it's good when mounting the TV in the sala--with the LCD panel's very good viewing angles, there's not much to complain about--may you mount it high or low. But if you will mount the TV in the kitchen, etc., then it's recommended to purchase a 'pivoting' mount instead. The included mount is just a plain horizontal brace, and it mounts using only the two 'top' screw holes of the TV's VESA mount, while using two rubber pads for the remaining two 'bottom' screw holes. It holds the TV by hanging and is secured by two small brace screws (lock), so that the TV won't accidentally fall. If you don't want to wall mount you TV, you can always use the included swivel base, it swivels 20 degrees, left and right direction.

AFTER-SALES SUPPORT
Devant is said to be designed in Singapore, but i'm not sure if their products are made in the Philippines or China (as the same with all of our daily gadgets). It is exclusively distributed by 'Techpoint Enterprise' (www.techpoint.com.ph) and their main office/service center is in Binondo. Their website is quite unupdated, so you won't see this model there. With this, i'm pretty sure that this TV is one of their latest models, if i'm not mistaken. It comes with 1-year warranty for parts and labor, and they even offer free home service (the salesman told me that you'll just have to pay for their fare). :)

CONCLUSION
For the price of P21K for the 'entire set'--a good 32" inch TV, with very decent picture quality, impressive viewing angles, abundant connectors, plus a bonus HDMI upscaling DVD player already included--this is really a bargain!

Now, if you could only remove your bias towards the brand... ;D

I opted for this package a week ago, imagine 21K only!!! Includes an  hdmi player w/ hdmi cable and wall mount bracket!!! Another contender for this model is the Ganzklar 32" HD ready with PIP and TCL 32". Was not actually able to compare the two side by side so I have no opinion which has a better PQ. Devant's panel was definitely a steal compared to the other more expensive brands when it comes to viewing angle.

Actually I chose LG310 because of its higher contrast ratio. Also was not able to compare Devant and LG side by side. LG's viewing angle is no match to this Devant's model. But LG's contrast ratio is 60,000:1 against Devant's 15,000:1

Got my LG310 at a cash price of 19K.

Were you able to compare this side by side with the 32DX850 Signature series? This one comes with a free NB-895 player + DV5130 5.1Ch speaker system. I was told that this series is their high end "LCD" next to their LED TV's.

Title: Re: Devant 32CL900 LCD TV Review
Post by: kalogerz on Jun 25, 2010 at 06:26 AM

@Venet
Yes sir, actually when I bought the TV, the Devant 32DX850 & the Devant 32CL900 are sitting next to each other, and I can say that they have the same picture quality since they're both using the same panel technology (as written in the brochure).

The only difference of the Devant 32DX850 is, it has PIP, SRS, 3 HDMI ports (instead of just 2), & it can play DivX movies via its USB port (not just JPEGs & MP3s), but the rest of the features are the same. Plus, the Devant "Signature Series" has a bulkier body appearance (probably because of the SRS, but same 5w x 2 speakers), which kinda turned me off.

But regarding the package of the Devant 32DX850, it comes with a FREE Devant DV-5130 5.1 channel speaker system (priced at Php9.9K+ if bought separately), and a Nextbase NB-895 HDMI player too! Anson's Trinoma is offering it to me for only Php26,500, all in! I didn't took the offer since, first, it doesn't fit my budget anymore, and second, i'm not a fan of 5.1 channel speakers (too many wires for me & tedious to set up ...'2.1' na lang! ;D).

This is also a great bargain considering that it already includes everything na to set up your home theater!


@silverknight
Sulit nga talaga sir! ...sayang, you fell for the LG LD310, i'm also considering din yan dati because it's very cheap, kaso mejo nabitin kasi ako sa connectivity niya. :(

Regarding the Nextbase NB-895 HDMI player, there's a thread here in PinoyDVD regarding its 'awesomeness' dating from way back year 2008!

HERE:
http://www.pinoydvd.com/index.php/topic,57322.1740.html

I'm happy na nakuha ko lang ito for free! (or, if ever naman "hindi talaga siya free", then nakamura pa din ako considering what it can do) ;D By the way, i'm using a Kingston 16GB thumbdrive with it in playing my DivX movies, and it's working flawlessly. :D

Same panel does not necessarily mean same picture quality.

Was considering this model as well PQ was somehow at par with the 32c10x2. Opted to get the latter though.
Title: Re: Devant 32CL900 LCD TV Review
Post by: silkenhut on Jul 04, 2010 at 10:58 PM
this was very tempting especially the "signature" series. for those who wants a free hdmi player and 5.1 speakers (around PHP13k) of freebies, get the devant signature series 32" :D

though, i still decided to get a scarlet

Post by: kalogerz on Jul 06, 2010 at 07:18 PM

Sorry for the late reply guys...

Finally, I was able to test the video game capability of this baby just this morning by connecting it to my PC via the VGA port, and playing COD4 using 1024x768 resolution @ 60 FPS (frames per second) average reading using Fraps.

(Sorry for the photos, I only used a point-and-shoot camera)
(http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b164/kalogerz/Etceteras/Devant_32CL900_LCDTV/Devant_32CL900-15.jpg)
Note: Fraps reading of 74 FPS at the upper left corner

RESULT: Smooth panning / no shadowing or blurring of images! Very fast! ;)


Also, I tried several other screen resolutions just to see what the outcome might look like:

(http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b164/kalogerz/Etceteras/Devant_32CL900_LCDTV/Devant_32CL900-12.jpg)
1024x768 -- Good setting. Good scaling, fine images & fonts, but they appear stretched (obviously, because of 4:3 ratio)

(http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b164/kalogerz/Etceteras/Devant_32CL900_LCDTV/Devant_32CL900-13.jpg)
1360x768 @ 60Hz -- The best setting. Good scaling, fine images & fonts! ;)

(http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b164/kalogerz/Etceteras/Devant_32CL900_LCDTV/Devant_32CL900-14.jpg)
1360x768 @ 75Hz -- Good, but not as fine as using 60Hz.


One question though... the 'native' resolution of this Devant LCD TV is 1366x768 (16:9), but the available option on my PC's display setting is only 1360x768 (that's 6 pixels short, horizontally), that's why I can only get 'fine' fonts & images, but not 'sharp' (like in 1:1 / dot-by-dot pixel mapping) :P ...Is there a way for my PC to use the native resolution of the display via the VGA (analog) connection? :)

Hello po.

Just got a question.

I just purchased Devant 32CL950 Full HD at Western Appliance in Ever Gotesco for 25K. (with free dvd ).

When I play God of War 3 on my PS3, the resolution downscales to 720p.

It runs at 1080i on my older Samsung Series 3 LCD TV.

Is there a way around this? I think I've tried all possible ways to go around with it but to no avail.

Please help.  Already thinking of returning it. Purchased this TV for GOW3.

Devant 32CL950? Are you sure this is the model you have sir? There's the 32CL900, though it can accept 1080p resolution, it's only 'HD Ready', and not 'Full HD'.

Maybe you're pertaining to the 32CE950 (their "Elite" series), Full HD.

Regarding your PS3 game, I hope this link helps sir:

Sorry, you're right. It's 32CE950 ("Elite" series). Thanks for the link. Just realized that 720p is actually better than 1080i. but GOW3 looks so much better (in my opinion) running at 1080i. Because the images and menu looks smaller compared when it's running at 720p.

Thanks. Now I'm 100% satisfied with my Devant.

I assume you're using an Nvidia board (because of the menu layout and the resolution issue). You can set a custom resolution in your display drivers.

Oh yeah! I didn't notice the 'Add Resolutions' button before! then there's a 'Create Custom Resolution' button after that! Thanks a lot sir! :D

Also, it looks like my Nvidia drivers needs some updating... ;D

Based on the experts here and also my "untrained" eye observation, at 32" inches, you wouldn't really notice the difference except for certain artifacts, e.g. some part of the crowd in NBA 2k10, that would look more'" "pixelized." Other than that, it should be the same.

I was looking at this brand in SM Appliance Southmall the other day - particularly, their 19"-26" LCDs.
Only the 24" was connected via HDMI while the rest were composite, so naturally the PQ of the 24" was better than the others.
When I learned that only the 24" among the group (19"-26") is full-HD, I requested that they also connect a HDMI connector to the 26" which is side by side with the 24". Still, the 24" had the better PQ.
Im not familiar with the different series of Devant (Elite, Signature, etc.), but it seems the Elite series are all full-HD.

Here's the kicker thou - they sell the Devant 24" Elite for 15k bundled with a flat tv wall mount and a dvd player. However, the bundled dvd player doesnt have a HDMI port :P

Carefully consider "the price" sir.

Devant is known to offer 'very good' bargains (particularly in their 32" HD Ready "Lustre" & "Signature" series) since they give you the bonus of getting 'grand' FREEBIES--from HDMI players to 5.1 channel speakers--at no extra cost!

Sad to say, Devant's Full HD "Elite" series (32" inches and above) doesn't offer such freebies. And, with that kind of budget that you have and NOT getting any freebies, i'd suggest you just opt for an LG or a Samsung instead... (I'm still not brand-biased, just call me a "freebie lover" ;D).

I'm from Baguio. I bought a 32" DX850 Signature Series last October 17, 2010.  After about a week, I noticed that the TV's volume gradually increases from 0 - 25.  But when I increase it some more to 26, there is a tremendous surge in the volume which is consistently loud until volume 49. Then the volume suddenly disappears at Volume 50 which gradually increase again til Volume 100. I went back to the store where I bought it but they won't change the unit since apparently their "return policy" is within 24 hours only upon purchase.  They referred me to the authorized service center who told me that they will be replacing the TV's main board to fix the problem, but I need to wait for at least 2 weeks since they will still place the order.  We still use the TV but I really feel bad  >:( having to invest so much for a TV that has already shown its manufacturing defect just barely a week out of the box. Any of you guys had the same bad experience? I sure Hope not.  ???

Have you tried contacting Techpoint itself for a possible replacement? I'm fairly certain they'd be more receptive to that. And given that the 'authorized service center' itself has already pointed to the main board as the culprit (not to aggravate you further, but... OMG), I personally would not settle for anything other than a full-on replacement. Get the DTI involved if you must, on a worse-case scenario.

I did not bother calling Techpoint anymore since in their Warranty Certificate, the "Covered with Direct Replacement" clause says that the unit is replaceable within 7 days of purchase only.  However to my "consolation" it says also that they will replace the unit if after "reasonable number of attempts to remedy a defect, the unit still continues to suffer the same defect."  I'm like... What?!? ...Are they kidding?!?... Of course they need to replace such inferior, substandard unit if the problem is not remedied. But the problem is, how would you quantify "reasonable number of attempts"?  ??? ..... Nevertheless, I still have high regard that they won't let this concern taint their valued Corporate Responsibility. I'm still hoping for a positive after-sales service from them, which I sincerely pray would be sooner than later.  :(

Devant?  I wouldn't recommend it.  Bought a portable DVD player from them before.  Nasira after 1 week yun battery.  Di raw covered sa warranty.  Considered as accessory daw yun battery.  Di ba thev battery is part of the DVD player and not accessory for the mere fact that the DVD player won't run without it?  Simula nun di na ako bibili ng Devant.

if i may... i've been personally using my devant cl900 wid the dvd player freebie for more than 3 months now.  Not once did it give me any problems.  It performed as well as it claimed it would.  The player read all my downloaded files from the jpegs, avi's to the divx from my portable drive even if its inside a separate folder.  Though its dashboard and interface may not be as well polished as those of sony, LG, and even Samsung, its a minor thing that I can overlook.  For me what's important is when I bought it for its said features and it delivered those feauters, that's already good enough for me.  Again, this is just me saying things as it is. :)

it means they got the panel from samsung, but they are using their own technology to drive the panel.
IIRC samsung used to to get their panels from LG (or the other way around)  :)

Also, it looks like my Nvidia drivers needs some updating... ;D


I want to know if the picture is still the same from the first 5 months you bought to present. Is it still the same? I am planning to buy one this week. Pinagpipilian ko ung Sony Bravia bx300, Devant 32, and Samsung 3 Series, overall seems devant is the okay, but I am looking for the brand name which is Sony, but the picture is not good same as samsung.

For almost 6 months now and counting, so far my Devant TV is still working perfectly, used everyday, for TV & movies. :)

Is Devant still offering the same prices/promos (free upscaling HDMI DVD players, etc.) on their LCDs? because i'm not updated anymore. Thanks guys! :D

I also have a Devant 32" which I bought last Dec 2008. I would say that it's durabilty has been tested and so far so good it is still working perfectly. PQ is still the same..... no dark spots, no backlight bleeding.

Not that I'm just waiting for it's time to come so that I have a reason to upgrade to a bigger size... but fortunately everything's working fine.

My only gripe is about the volume control.... it seems that even if you increase the volume... the sound doesn't increment. the sound volume is still the same from volume 30 until ... say 50 or 60. there would be slight improvement in volume at 70 to 100. weird!

I Bought a Samsung Series 6 LCD TV 32" para sa maliit kong room. I got it at 35,900 and I must say wow ang ganda.... wala akong masabi sa quality at may clear motion technology... deeper ang blacks niya...and downloaded HD videos are crisp and clear...

Actually gusto ko sana yung LED Series 5 na model kasi mura lang at 32,000 kaya lang di available dito at that time. But when I saw series 6 and my price drop from 44,000 to 35,900 kinuha ko na....

Di ako nagsisisi....


Before gusto ko rin sana yung Devant 32" Elite Series kasi mura na and andaming freebies pa kaya lang bitin ako sa Contrast Ratio.... And parang wala silang Clear Motion Technology....  ::) ::) ::)

I watched my favorite Moulin Rouge na blu-ray copy na pirated sa bago kong samsung series 6 and I must say ang ganda ganda ng kuha.... And I downloaded HD Format Videos Like the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show on my Flash Drive and plugged it in My LCD and I must say super ganda.... Ayoko ko nang lumabas ng bahay dahil diyan. Ha ha ha

I love it....
By the way yung 2-year old Xbox 360 ko.... yun ang ginagamit ko to watch movies at ang ganda parang may upscaling kasi 1080p na ang Xbox 360... So I really don’t need a standalone player with upscale feature.

Do note, though, that those units on sale are either store display sets (which are normally on for 6-8 hours everyday) or merchandise returns with "slight cosmetic damages".

And warranty is only for 6 months.

Got this power reading for Devant 32CL900 last January 6,2011 at one of the biggest stores in the Philippines. The measured power consumption was based on the store's showroom setting and demo video. By the way, this model is rated at 100-240 Volts (auto volt); 50-60 Hertz; 130 Watts.

USER setting:    115 Watts (118 VA)   +/- 3 Watts

brightness and contrast (picture) settings did not influence the power consumed.
the backlight setting determined how much power was consumed.

just sharing guys.............

Hi to the AUTHOR of this post:)

For your info, your post influenced me a lot upon buying an LCD. I was also considering LG and Sharp that time. I just had my 32" DX850 at Western Appliance Centre in Sta. Lucia..got it for 27,500 w/ Nextbase DVD and 5.1 HT.

Great PQ when it comes to movies(of course it shouldn't be pirated  ;) ) my only concern is the PQ when it comes to CATV. Any suggestion on how to set the picture  per se to get a good PQ, its not at par with an ordinary TV. The picture looks very pale..that's why i opted to watch in my old TV, and just use the LCD for movies.

By the way author, how's your LCD right now? It's been almost 8 months since you posted this review..d'ya have any problems like what others have?

I just bought my 32inch prime series (HD READY), NextBase NB-895 and added 4k for the Devant 5.1 speaker. All in all it cost me 22.5k, Over a month ago. I am very happy with it. I tried playing Downloaded movies using the free dvd player, and the quality is superb. The only thing that is not good with downloaded movies is that you wont get the full potential of the 5.1 speaker. will buy a Ps3 next month, i will post pictures of it after.

What i can say is that if you are not biased with the brand, and you are near the service center of this LCD tv, Then go buy it.

Are you saying na hindi gumagana lahat nung speaker mo? or yung 2 speakers lang ang gumagana?

Kung hindi gumagana lahat nung speaker mo, may mali lang sa connection mo between the speaker and dvd, mejo madali lang naman sya i-figure out. Front speakers are for front speakers in your dvd and same thing with the 3 speakers (rear,center,sub)

Kung hindi naman gumagana lahat ng speaker mo, it means na you are playing a movie from a usb which is already compressed with a sound of stereo. (left and right only)

Yung sa hdmi mo naman, are you sure na hindi ba gumagana? try mo i-press yung "SOURCE" sa remote tv mo, tapos piliin mo yung HDMI. the thing is you need to set which source the TV will play on, so baka ni pa naka-set yan, since sabi mo gumagana naman nung ginawa nung salesman.

sir, hindi talaga gagana lahat ng speaker mo pag nagplay ka ng audio cd, tama lang na front yung gumagana because that is only STEREO sound.

yung sa case naman ng dvd na center speaker lang yung gumagana, if I may ask lang. orig ba yung dvd? if no, sometimes it happens talaga na center lang ang gaganda kasi poor ang audio encoding ng pirated dvds.

HI, I just want to share my experience with this brand. My DeVant 22DL29 got broken about a week ago. I was watching a TV braodcast when slowly the screen started to get hazy and then the picture started to distort until there are only moving vertical lines lines on the screen, no picture at all. Audio is OK though.

I just bought this in December 2009, almost a year and a half lang. I only used this to watch TV broadcast about five hours om average during weekdays and  eight hours during weekends for watching DVDs and TV. I'm not sure if I have abused it.

What's funny though is that when I took it to its service center in Makati, there's one customer who has the same brand and model as I have and guess what, same problem, and same TV age.

with that experience, I dont think I'll be a returning customer for this brand.

I dont want to burst your bubble for those who have it now or are planning to buy one, mine might be just an isolated case.

@lady_virus  regarding the 5.1 on the nb895, pls check your sound output settings on your nb895. try mo tignan lahat ng tabs nung dvd setup menu mo, lalo na sa sound tab baka andun sagot sa problema.

It's been almost 6months since I bought our LCD TV. It is still doing fine for me and I'm using a lot for gaming, as in heavy gaming. no problem naman, all i can say dun sa mga nagkaproblem kaagad with this brand is baka lemon lang yung unit, di naman din kasi natin masasabi yan e. In a way swerte/malas lang din if you take a look at the whole picture.

I just got the 42MEL260, 3D TV. 

how much does devant 3d tv cost? what;s the smallest tv size with 3d capability? do they include the glasses too?

Post by: bravoexo on Mar 04, 2012 at 02:36 AM
That's the only model so far.  They include 2 glasses, oversized perfectly to fit over my own corrective glasses.  Side by Side Interlace/Progressive/Top and Bottom 3D modes sya.  The Nextbase blu-ray player freebie isn't 3D however, so that's a small quirk.  Php 49,950 @ malls now,  Got it at the SM North's Automatic Center exhibit for 18mos 0% + pay first installment after 3 months with our BPI CC.

I need Half SBS source files though to test the 3D some more... I don't have an HDMI 1.4 cable at the moment to get PowerDVD 12 to work in 3D for some reason on my HD6570 powered HP Dv7 Pavillion.

Bravoexo, does the Mel260 3D TV feature 120hz Vivid Motion like the non-3D ones?
How's your TV doing so far? Would you know how the 3D compares to say LG's Cinema 3D series?

Thanks.

60hz lang sya.  The 3D is great though.... I like how we can use the Real3D glasses from US cinemas on this set.  The glasses though nito are really nice, oversized and wrap around, so my own prescription glasses fit in them.  LG passive glasses IIRC are just flat ones, like the Real3D ones... hard to use them over my eyeglasses.

mga sirs, I was with my brother in law a while ago and he bought a devant 26" LED tech TV (I dont know the model name though) When we tried it out with the cable TV  (destiny analog not yet the one with digi box) it was so grainy/snowy. I thought it was only because of the antenna but when we tried it out with another LCD TV (a 32 " sony EX -something.. ???) it wasnt as grainy or snowy. Are we missing a beat here? are there any tweaks that we should know about on how to make  the TV/Cable signal  much more decent?

Thanks to all.

+1 here for CATV concern.

Was at Anson's Makati and was looking a the Devant CX800 (39 in., LCD) Glitz series. The salesman said he could ask for a manager's discount and give it to me for P20K, from P26k+ in Feb. 2012. Free Nextbase DVD player included. The PQ appeared great while I was viewing it.

I will be giving this to my mom who doesn't watch movies through DVD. Only cable TV. Would like to know the experiences of Devant users with regard to the PQ of analog cable TV. The salesman admitted that for analog cable, the PQ will be a bit snowy.

any feedback will be much appreciated. thanks

Sirain ang DeVant TV. Di magtatagal yan. Sayang lang ang pera ninyo. NAbiktima ako ng DeVant. NAgtapon lang ako ng pera. 8months lang sira na. Inayos nila pero isang taon lang inabot totally nasira na.
Defective and brand na ito. BULOK! Marami na nagcomplain pero di kayo pakikinggan. Kahit magfile sa DTI  for consumer protection act. Ayaw na ibalik ng devant pera ninyo. Yun lang mahalaga sa kanila kahit wala silang customer. Marami na sila naloko.
