    Has anyone heard of Konka? I came across a website called www.dealsdirect.com.au the other day and it seems AWESOME, I bought a coffee machine for 99 bucks down from 450 - http://www.dealsdirect.com.au/cart.php?m=p...ct_detail&p=884

    They have a tv that is built by Konka http://www.dealsdirect.com.au/cart.php?m=p...t_detail&p=1074 Damn good saving and I have been looking for a bigger tv for a while so this might be the go just wanted to know if anyone has any experience with any Konka products and thoughts??

        I've had a konka TV for one of the boys, 52cm jobbie.

        Cheap, has good options though, quick tuning setup, worked really well till a very small power surge blew up the tuner unit. (Looks like plugging in the RCA points from the DVD player while both were turned on did it in, as nothing else on the circuit was touched, and the unit itself still turns on, just no RCA working anymore, and no sound output).

        So not bad, but you get what you pay for usually.

          they rhyme with tonka and thats about as good as it gets. total crap

          (being in insurance, i seem to always be declining claims on Tv's lots of people try to blame their busted teles on lightning damage! which is easily disproved. however i have noticed that the Konka brand keeps popping up) apprarently they also emit a high pitched buzzing after a year or two and turning the sound up doesnt help.

          save ur pennies and opt for a better quality cheaper brand.

              dont know about konka (tho i've heard of konia) but I bought a 67cm flatscreen (not lcd) TCL tv from the good guys. cost around $450 iirc. TCL apparently are one of the worlds largest manufacturers of picture tubes for tv's and supply many other companies.
              bloody good tv. had it over a year and no problems. has all the inputs and outputs required
              check out "the good guys"

                The only real problem with buying TV's like these hear is that knowone services them hear. Even though they have a warranty if and when they stuff up YOU will have to pay approx $400 in freight to another state to have it repaired. Name brands have dealers and service centres hear and wont cost you at all.

                  If you want huge would projectors be good to look at, know the bulb goes after a while. Are they worth it???

                    Bout 2 years back me and the missus bought a conia 80cm from Rick Hart for $500 (got an overnight stay at the vines as well).

                    Was fine for 18months, then all of a sudden the screen has started to cut out (sound is fine, just no picture). Comes good after a while but shits me to tears every now and again when it does it.

                    To get it fixed I expect it is going to cost me more than to buy a new one.

                    Strathfield have a ROWA 80cm for $488 atm, seems ok, 3yr warranty, check it here

                      Projectors are good but you have to get a DLP one (so you dont lose the colours over time as with LCD) and the globes will cost you anywhere from 200-800 depending onthe model. You also need a tuner / stereo etc and a screen to give the best results. However there are some great ones out there with long life and cheap globes. (just have to do your research)

                          Rear projections are rubbish, it will piss you off after no more than 2 years.
                          Most tv's internals are made by the same few companys but to make them cheap they skimp on the rest of the product.

                            I quite like the DLP rear projectors (ESPECIALLY the Samsung ones - amazing), but as infusion mentioned, bulbs are a pita.

                            Each tech has their own drawbacks, though:

                            CRT: small sizes, HEAVY, blurry if in rear projector
                            DLP: projector/rear proj only, bulbs
                            LCD: Colour fade, stuck pixels, in projectors - bulbs, Expensive in flat panels
                            Plasma: power hungry, HOT, burn-in, did I mention power hungry?
                            LCOS: Too early to tell (Liquid Crystal On Silicon)
                            OLED: Too early to tell (Organic Light Emitting Diode)

                            Did I leave any out?

                            So it's all a matter of what you can live with.
