    Whats in a Brand Name??
    Dick Smith aka Woolworths buys by the container load and sells untill all gone.
    Compare prices,how it looks and the all important WARRANTY !!!
    Always ask the sales staff about their Return Policy.

    Buy it, Try it and KEEP the Sales receipt in a safe and secure place, I staple mine into the User Guide in the plastic bag and put it with all my other warranties.
    I stand unequivicably behind everything I say , I just dont ever remember saying it !!

    WhiteOx, Dick Smith have an excellent 14 day return policy. You can take it back within that period and tell them its a heap of shit if you arent happy with it and they will refund your money.

    So its pretty hard to lose.

    i have a 38" vivo full HD LCD and i tell you its awesome, appart from a higher energy use than other tv's the same size/features it blows me away for the price.

    was $666 from dicksmith powerhouse at Erina Fair about 6-10 months ago.

    it has
    - 2x HDMI IN
    - 2x Component IN
    - 1x PC IN (VGA)
    - 2x AV IN
    - Standard TV (Analogue)
    - Full HD TV & Radio

    The Colours are vibrant but the tv itself isn't big enough really to judge picture quality,

    but in my loungeroom FoxTel IQ (SD) looks better than most cheaper tvs out there.

    When you do things right, people won't be sure that you have done anything at all

    - 1024 x 768 Resolution

    - Inbuilt Digital Tuner

    - Samsung A+ Grade Panel

    - 5.1 Digital Audio Output

    - 2 x HDMI Inputs
