I'm thinking about purchasing the LCD19XR7, but can't find it anywhere except The Warehouse. Given that The Warehouse has had a historical reputation for cheap and dirty electronics, I'm a bit weary about purchasing it.

Could I have some pointers on whether Sanyo is a good brand for TVs and which other brands I should be looking at?

For your reference the LCD19XR7 is (from Sanyo site):

  • HDTV Compatibility 1080i
  • Resolution: 1440 x 900
  • Brightness: 300 (nits)
  • Contrast: 850:1
  • Response time: 5MS
  • NICAM/A2 Stereo
  • Video In: RF in TV/CATV Coaxial x 1, SCART x 1, D-Sub 15 x 1, YPbPr/YCbCr: Component x 1
  • Audio output: L/R RCA x 1
  • 170 degree viewing angle
  • Off sleep timer
  • Teletext
  • Optional wall mount
  • Weight: 8kg (with stand)

    I have a 42" Sanyo, acquired for $0 in a Telecom promo (Which is why I will never be able to justify HD to the missus).

    Had it for nearly 4 years, and the Y-board died, and was replaced under warranty locally in Hastings, despite Telecom getting the unit direct from Sanyo overseas.

    Other than that, nice features (for an older set), nice quality (for an SD set), fantastic viewing angle. Good looking unit too.

    Weird, the Sanyo sets we had at Telecom, Auckland - that we hooked up our Xboxes with all seem to die of refresh problems

  • HDTV Compatibility 1080i
  • Resolution: 1440 x 900

  • Does anybody else see a problem here?

    sure the set may be capable of receiving 1080i it does some serious downscaling to make it fit.

    my advice start looking at a real HD tv that has a resolution of 1920*1080

    CPU: AMD 5900x | RAM: GSKILL Trident Z Neo RGB F4-3600C16D-32GTZNC-32-GB | MB:  Asus X570-E | GFX: EVGA FTW3 Ultra RTX 3080Ti| Monitor: LG 27GL850-B 2560x1440

    I wouldnt touch Sanyo, despite looking horrible the quality leaves alot to be desired. Spend a few extra bucks and buy a Sony or a Samsung. You won't regret it!

    Not being too technically minded TV-wise, I will say I have not heard a single complaint from hubby regarding the Sanyo LCD TV that I won at christmas time... I'd rather read a book get into geekzone...
