OMG the fabled 60hz LED backlit plasma TV, it's like finding a unicorn! How did they ever combine two completely different display technologies in such an awesome orgy or cheapness?!

Haha, I didn't even notice that... pretty funny stuff.

regardless of a messed up spec sheet

ario is a rebranded viore which is a rebranded akai...

which is either a samsung or hitachi [which used to make screens for fujitsu and also sony]

this TV will probably calibrate very well and I would not be surprised if it is better than lots of the budget BF tvs

but lcds even leds suck...need a $200 tv? find a used 08-09 plasma on craigslist [which is probably still under its 2-3 year warranty and will last you another 5 years]

Any proof?

I can't even find an Ario website. You would think if Viore made that brand there would be some reference online somewhere.

I'm a plasma buyer and will never go with anything else (warmer colors and much better for watching sports imo) but I wouldn't say LCDs suck. I think they've come a very long way.

never bought one but have messed around with one

these off brand tvs are NEVER for sure, but the one I looked at used samsung remote codes and had a nearly identical menu to my samsung monitor

and the salesmen mentioned the hitachi thing

which I believe, because if you keep up with radio shack, they've gotten a ton of hitachi 32 inch displays for $260 on "clearance" [they were never sold regular price]

and kmart sold the same exact tv for $199 their black friday

[coincidentally, kmart is the only big box nationwide to actively sell HITACHI televisions]

you do the math..but at $199 it is worth it, better than element, tcl, and westinghouse..

Got cha. I heard the 32 Inch TCL (L32HDF11TA) definitely uses a Samsung Panel, and it was a pretty attractive option at $188 shipped at Amazon w/ the Lightning Deal.

Which Kmart model are you talking about?

The Seiki models?

Just some info on the store about their ratings. http://www.resellerratings.com/st...cro_Center
Many bad reviews, any slickdealer want to give their 2 cents from past purchases, NO TOUCHPAD REVIEWS PLEASE. thanks

There were a lot of people who were very happy when Microcenter oversold a 32 in Haier tv awhile back. They substituted a crappy replacement for like the first 200 people then gave the rest of the folks a kickass LG.

Other than that, I have only done business through brick and mortar with them and it's the same with every other computer parts store; their employees are useless and you need to know how to help yourself. Good prices on Apple products and Intel processors from time to time.

The Seiki, yes, but they also sell just plain Hitachi [kind of like Circuit City used to sell Aspect, which was hitachi once you got the manual open and peeled the aspect sticker off the back and it had the hitachi plate

Not all the TCLs are Samsung..so I'd be careful when getting one of those.

I'm looking into a Hisense at Wal-Mart, I'm hoping I figure out good news..just so anyone knows..it's $400 for a 40 inch 120hz lcd and seeing it actually on I was impressed for the price..something tells me it is a decent display but I don't know anything about it

Reseller ratings? Really?

Use a real company....like Consumer Reports. They rank Micro Center #1 in customer service along with Apple.
