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. :)

in the show room showed me that the panel of Devant is Samsung,
what does that actually mean?
does the panel mean the actual board used is same as samsung?

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)  :)

@Stagea
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


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!

buti na lang di ko nakuha ung inoffer sa kin one time na 37 inch.olats pala after sale support.kung ako yan papa palitan ko talaga ung unit lalo na at within the week.di biro biro magtrabaho sa gabi ah.pati ung sound volume mukhang may issue.

price is really competitive sa devant pero kung ganyan din lang ang support wag na lang.ung sa LG ko base lang ang issue inofferan ako ng unit replacement ng manager nila which I politely declined.never naman akong nasiraan ng LG unit.naka 4 na rin akong LCD.

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.............
