My mother just bought a Devant Prime 32DE850, really good output.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eAzh8L0vkNE
 
I tested out the HDMI output... and got to compare the outputs of
 
17.3" LED LCD of the Dv7-4290us (Blu-ray)
 32" LCD TV (Devant 32DE850) (Blu-ray)
 55" Philips RPTV (DVD on an Xbox S)
 


Sony KDL-55W904A, HK AVR330, DAV-DZ950, Xbox One, 360 and PS3, Wharfedale Diamond 8.4, PSW110

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 purchased Toshiba 32" PB1 (power booster) series over devant elite series full hd 32", I talked to one of the technician of devant in anson's makati, he said that " ngkaka problema parati yung power switch" then when the sales man came up at my back, the technician step away and said that may be I can talk to the salesman to know the full details of the product. " narinig cguro nung sales man yung sinabi ng technician na lagi ngkaka problema yung power switch," :P

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.

Bought my 32CL900 december 2010 after reading this review, its still doing fine as if it was only bought yesterday.PQ still ok, sound still ok. sana lang tumagal.

@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.

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.
