Akai LCD TVs?

Good, bad, ugly....

Looking for a 20-32 for a guest room, the look decent, and they seem like a good price point...

I don't know chit about electronics, so any info appreciated...

Plasmas sure seem to be dropping in price. There's a place here selling 50" Phillips units for $2500

And then there's this asshole...

Re: Akai LCD TVs?

Will it connect to ANY video source?


I thought your approach to shopping electronics was to drive over to a Wal-Mart and take the night manager's recommendation..

Re: Akai LCD TVs?

I think SSG bought one a while back....?

Generally speaking, expect to pay about 30% more for an LCD tv of equal quality to a similar plasma tv.

For a guest room though? Probably not a bad deal.
