Looking at these 3 models:

1)LG scarlet 42LG60FR. Quoted by HN 2599.(free dvd player).
Quoted by another shop 2388(no free gift)

2)Samsung LN40A650. quoted by HN 3339. (free HT).
Quoted by another shop 3339. (Same free gift).

3)Sony Bravia KLV40W400A. Quoted by HN 3099(no free gift).
Quoted by another shop 2888(no free gift)

Questions:
a)Any difference between soft/hard panels. HN staff says that 2nd and 3rd option are of soft panel. Option 1 is hard panel. Any pros/cons of soft?

b)Is the above three of reasonable price or still ex?

Lastly, am targeting the LG for now...open to all views....
Thanks for reading

I suggest you wait for the PC show in June. You can get fantastic deal there. My frend got a good deal there, a 37" after discount, petrol voucher and shopping voucher only $1299. nod.gif

Soft panel means that if children take something and whack again the LCD panel, the panel will be damaged but hard panel will protect the LCD panel. Go for hard panel if you have kids around.

PC show in June... idea.gif ...yeah, why didn't i think of that,just around the corner.

So the soft panel vs hard panel is only the physical contact. But it seems to me that
soft panel got a clearer contrast than hard panel. Was comparing bet sony bravia(soft panel 30000:1) and the LG model(hard panel 50000:1)

Just FYI.
Sony and Samsung had a joint venture LCD panel manufacturing plant in Korea.
LG and Phillip had also a joint venture LCD panel plant in Korea.
For the above 4 brand, some of the LCD panel are produce from the same plants. Sony & Samsung from same plant. LG and Philip from same plant.

Hihi,

Firstly, I must say im not an expert in this field but did read up a bit here and there when I bought my 2 LVD TV. IMHO, for brand wise, I will go for LG and samsung. The specs for LG is quite good.

I dun prefer Sony TV as I feel that it is slightly overpriced. I dunno how true, but i was told by the salesperson that Sony actually bought the display panels from samsung and den assemble, hence costs slightly higher.

You may want to check out GainCity, cos their prices there are quite competitive. Even during PC fair, they will have promotions to compete during that period too, hence you may be able to get a good bargain.

Disclaimer: Im not in anyway related to Gaincity, haha

Cheers

Just bought a 55" LG OLED and noticed that the TV does not able to detect my Bluetooth headphone. I understand from some forums saying that LG TV does not support other brand of wireless, except LG. No sure if this is true.

 

I called up LG service to verify. Was told that LG technology is "high tech" and under "wireless sound sync". Therefore, I should look out for headphone that is able to support wireless sound sync. My current headphone is a bluetooth one, so unable to connect to LG TV. Bluetooth and wireless sound sync are different. Although I am not a technical guy, but I have a feeling that he is BS.

Is this correct ? Anyone wants to clarify on this ?

Pls share. 

 

Thank you.

It seems to be a compatibility problem.

Not all bluetooth devices are equal, there's quite a few version.

Maybe this will explain why pairing fails, probably the LG is bluetooth "smart"

Hi Bro,

 

I'm looking to buy an OLED B6 model. So far the cheapest was from Best Denki for me.
Do you mind sharing your pricing and model you got ?

I will need to get the extra blue bluetooth for it to work?

As far happy with the viewing except this pairing issue..Sigh...

BEWARE YOUR SAMSUNG TV!!!

 

 

 

Phones, TVs spy on you: A team within the CIA developed spy software that infects Samsung smart TVs -- placing televisions on a "fake-off" mode that still listens to conversations and sends them back to American spies, WikiLeaks claimed. The program, called "Weeping Angel," was created with the help of the British spying agency MI5, it said.

Every laptop camera and mike can be switched on by the NSA

 

without you knowing or any sign on your laptop.

 

That's why I put a sticker on my laptop camera.

 

As for phones the NSA taps all calls anyway.
