No, these are not Sony TVs.. these are el cheapo name brands, I know that.
Yup, with better reviews.

we got a dynex and haier for bedrooms and have seen no problem. after Sony bravia broke it off in my as788 with the bad lcd screen does it really matter about name. it is all made by the same chinese kid.

What do you think the chances of scoring the 40" Toshiba from BB online on BF for $179? Does it make sense to spend the extra $30 plus tax?

When you see the 2 sizes side by side, you will really want at least a 50 inch

I am hesitant to buy another Haier. Our Haier lasted about 30 minutes. The Coby did better, lasting 13 months. Both were bought with the knowledge that they would not likely last.
In contrast, our Sony big screen is in its 4th year, having survived an episode of spontaneous-combustion-at-3 AM. (Edison forensics cited the factory power cord. The surge protector, alas, did not make it, getting rather melty.)
Friends with Dynex and most Insignia have had no complaints, other than the terrible aesthetics. Where do they hire these design people from? The Elbonian Institute of Art?

I would buy any other brand besides Coby. Everything I have ever bought from them has been junk. I would buy Sceptre, Proscan, Emerson anything but Coby.
And while $149 is cheap - remember, a few months ago WalMart had a Quantum View 1080p for $169 (worked with Samsung remote codes so hint to possibly who makes tv). Haier is reportedly (on this forum) $97 on BF at AMZ though it may be tough to get because its a lightening deal.
During the week of BF, $149 for 720p is not hot imo.... no offense to the OP.
And if you don't believe me, read reviews and here is a quote from a poster in the SD parallel thread:
Nsomnia1006 said: I bought a coby 32'' led tv for around $230.00 in the beginning of the year and it only lasted 5 months. Should have known better to buy a coby product after buying a coby cd player that only lasted a month in the early 2000's. Piece of crap didn't even last 6 months. From the research I did it looks like a lot of people had the same problems with a coby tv. What a waste of money..

Both seem to be back to cheaper price Coby 219.99 at BB and Haier 179.99 at Amazon
