I'm looking to pick up a new LCD or LED television. Around 400-500 usd. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

for 16000-20000 pesos, you might be able to buy a 22in tv.
Wrong.

For around 17,000RD you should be able to find a decent 32" (rca or other off-brand). For around 22,000RD you should be able to find a brand name 32" lg, samsung. Suggest opening up a newspaper, you'll find some decent deals.

I suggest checking out emarket.com. They have some good deals on there and you can apparently find a 32" for under 14,000RD.

I do not know why people keep talking about bringing in TVs, seriously, the price war on TVs in santo domingo is very strong, prices are low. Sony/Panasonic 32" RD18,999, anywhere, other brands are available.

Wrong. When i compare ( vs Canada and Can is like 5-10% more expensive compare vs USA) the tv's here where 30% more expensive.

You might not compare the same models.

Example dont compare a 42" LED 240hz that is worth 1200$ in the USA with a 42" LCD 120hz that his like 900-1000$ here. A lot of people dont compare things right about tv here, that i saw in a lot of threads.

Yeh, but I'm not anal about a TV show. The A-team in hi-def or plasma or whatever is just the same to me. If it fkd up down here it is still going to cost you the same to repair it. I think these people are extremely anal about something that only professional photographers EVER need to consider.

Lol, its not because its good for you its good for everyone.

You assume a lot of thing, personally i hate cheap technology and dont mind paying extra money for something good..

Im looking right now for a 50-55" 240hz LED TV and im desperate, just cant find something at a resonable price

Maybe it's just me, but I can live with a picture, and I would not in my stupidest drunken, wildest or most inappropriate dreams pay $1000 for a TV. That's like RD40,000 or something. The point is, you can buy a TV here cheap if you are not an arsehole or even anal about it.

Do you look for the cheapest taxi fares before you arrive here? I tend to jump on a cab and not worry about a few bucks, it's cost me a fortune up to now,why would I care of less expense, which often costs more just trying to avoid it!

Tell me it ain't so!

Lol, your talking about a 50-100pesos on a cab ride difference over a 40-50% difference on a TV worth over 2k? Keep comparing orange with banana.

What difference?

You are anal, I love it, truly and I respect you for that. It is like when I upgrade my ipads, it takes me quite some time and someone to point out the I provements. I think iPad 2isbetter than my three, but when I put all three models together, we all know the 2 better,and it is a lovely sleak feel and balance. I must admit I see fk all difference in what Rob bangs on about with the screen.

What do you mean what difference? I guess you dont see right, anyway im happy for you if you dont mind get anal rape and paying almost double the price on a TV, but i find it ridiculous.
