Sick of flat screen “deals”

I’m so sick of hearing about these “great deals” on flat screens. “Dude, I saw a 42″ LCD for for $800.” “Hey man, they have the best deals at CostCo. I saw a 32″ Vizio for $699.” “Wow, Target had this 42″ Olevia for $999.”

The slew of new LCD manufacturers are making it more affordable for consumers, but the focus is more on price point rather than quality. Axion, Olevia, Trutech, Apex, Sceptre, Norcent are just some of the names that come up. I will tell you that I bought a Norcent product before. It was a piece of crap.

Yeah, these flat screen HDTV’s are less expensive. But you get what you pay for. And that is where I say consumers are missing the point. The whole point of the migration to high definition is to offer a higher quality image than the standard definition that we’ve lived with for so many years. The whole point of “home theatre”, and I use that term loosely now, is to bring the high quality of cinema image and audio into your home.

Why wouldn’t you want the best? Why would anyone go out and say, “Yeah, I’ll take the Olevia, the Samsung is $300 more, and I don’t see much difference.” If you don’t see much difference between the name brands and generic (or cheap) brands then you should get your eyes checked. Either that or the store you are viewing them is not giving you a decent comparison.

People who just want a deal, and don’t care about quality might as well keep their $800 and watch YouTube all night. Because let’s face it, on content YouTube beats HD a million to one.
