3 December 2010

Dette er rett og slett et godt valg for deg som er på budsjett. Bildekvaliteten oppleves som god i denne prisklassen, og TV-en er bedre egnet til filmkvelder i dempet belysning enn LED-modellen...

Flotte menyer
100Hz og bevegelseskompensasjon
Godkjent for RiksTV
USB takler ikke video, litt mer sty i bildet enn Sony E 500 og LGs LED-alternativ
