I don't have an audiophile's ears nor a videophile's eyes, which may explain the following:
I just cannot understand why someone would by a $2000 name brand TV ahead of a similarly spec'd $800 warehouse TV. They look about the same to me and all sound terrible. The Warehouse has a 3 year warranty and if the TV fails after that who cares, get another one!
Yes, I think your first comment explains your second.
I'd be getting my hearing and eye sight checked if I couldn't tell the difference. It's massive.
The only aspect of the Veon TV's display I don't like is the display of black. In a dark room it's glowing grey.
Personally all the Veon TV's I have seen showing HD look just aweful, and the sound is beyond bearable! Personally I wouldn't spend $2000 on a TV either but wait for a sale on a decent brand with good picture and bearable sound.
