Skyworth quite worth it

For anyone else currently looking for 32" simple, cheap non-smart TV for bedroom or elderly use, can consider Skyworth 32E2000 (only $238). Picture and sound quality good enough for me. Remote control has large, clear buttons good for old folk. At such cheap price got PVR, MHL, digital audio connection, 2 HDMI, 1 USB. TV + box also very light, can easily self carry if don't want delivery.

Skyworth's DVB-T2 tuner is more powerful than Samsung's, even my previously useless Draco antenna (couldn't pick up anything with 2 STBs and Samsung TV) has no problems with at least 96% signal quality. And it also has DVB-C tuner for connection to SH cable point, but can confirm DVB-C display not as sharp as receiving DVB-T2 thru antenna.

Wish could be FHD but regardless of brand have to step up to 40" for FHD. But if mostly watching local FTA TV like elderly, then HD-Ready or WXGA is good enough. Another minor point is inability to rename source types eg. rename HDMI1 as DVD etc, but this is not big minus. Energy efficiency is 4 ticks, not bad. Previously also had negative perceptions about China brands but Skyworth exceeded my low expectations lol.

I was considering various Sharp (got 2 old Sharps conk out so wanted to try other brands, display also not very bright), Philips (remote con difficult for elderly to see buttons, but PQ not bad) & Toshiba (PQ not that great for its price but got front-facing speakers) models but now happy with good value for money Skyworth. Am not connected in any way to Skyworth, just a satisfied customer. Also can only comment on their 32", not sure about larger sizes but their 55" FHD at $699 also seems good price.

Re

Thanks - do you have a specific model to recommend?
A Sony or LG is ok. I don't mind paying more for a good set with full HD.
Cheers
I have a used (in fact using it now) SAMSUNG 32" FHD LED SMART TV Series 5 (5500) with built-in digital tuner still in good condition to let go. All you need is a digital antenna to work like what I'm doing now.

I'm planning to get the LG OLED 55C7T bundled with a free 49 inch FHD tv

If you are interested you can pm me and discuss further

Thanks

Looking to buy 32" TV

As per above, any recommendations?

Not much requirements actually, open to all options. Don't have to be smart.

Thanks!

Many on the lookout for 32’’ to offset $100 off 😂, some 32’’ models on the price mark up so use your $100 off wisely.

標準高清電視,如果以每一寸$10嚟計。。。已經算好平嘍。。。
必須留意嘅係各間公司提供的保修配套。話係話三年,但係是否全面保三年,必須確認下!

earlier in this thread somebody mentioned the $100 letter cannot apply on promo item and display set ... dunno whether this 229 is "promo"

if bring it down to 129 is good ...

image quality is alright , but the remote control buttons feels really cheapo type
