Tempting Devant 32 LCD TVs  devant 300x233

I am on a quest on buying my first television set and my target is a 32″ LCD TV. This is one of the brands that caught my eye earlier today while I was roaming around appliance stores mainly because of it’s freebies (sadly not the TV).

Let me write the specs here.

Devant Signature Series

  • Ultra Slim
  • HD Ready
  • Superior Clear Panel
  • Full Color Optimizer
  • PIP
  • USB Slot
  • HDMI
  • PC Input
  • Equalizer
  • Invisible Speaker

Devant Lustre Series

  • Ultra Slim
  • Full HD
  • Superior Clear Panel
  • 3D Digital Comb Filter
  • USB Slot
  • HDMI
  • PC Input
  • Invisible Speaker
  • Touch Button
  • Swivel Stand

Devant Elite Series

  • Ultra Slim
  • Full HD
  • Superior Clear Panel
  • Full Color Optimizer
  • USB Slot
  • HDMI
  • PC Input
  • SRS
  • Invisible Speaker
  • Touch Button

Some definition of terms (only what I know)

  • HD Ready has a resolution of around (1280×768) while Full HD has a resolution of (1920×1080)
  • SRS is something on the sounds (I think Toshiba has this one)
  • PIP means picture in picture where you can multi task (eg. one big picture for cable viewing while a little picture for your pc)

Model Cash Price Cash/Straight Payment Freebies Estimated Value of TV*
32DX850
Signature Series
PHP 31950 PHP 28750 (Less PHP 3200) HDMI Player (Next base 895)
and
DV-5130 5.1 CH Speaker System
15150
32CL900
Lustre Series
PHP 24950 PHP 22450 (Less PHP 2500) HDMI Player (Next base 895) 18850
32CE950
Elite Series
PHP 28950 PHP 26050 (Less PHP 2900) None 26050

If I look at the prices, they are already very competitive when you compare it to branded LCD TVs. The 32″ Signature Series for me would be the best buy due to the freebies you can get (HDMI player then a 5.1 Channel Speaker System).

Other Stats:

  • Contrast Ratio is 15000 : 1
  • Power Consumption is around 150 Watts (is this high?)

This is one on my watch-out list but somehow, I’m not that convinced =( . Btw, the promo I guess is until the end of the month (July 2010) or when the Twilight: Eclipse fever is gone.

Will continue to post more of my choices soon.

Btw, the picture above is a 22″ DX850 (Signature Series)

  1. I was eyeing the same brand as well. Judging the specs… it looks ok.. I believe the brand is competitive with the other “named” brands such as samsung and panasonic.
    Also, devant seems to be price reasonable.

    I saw another brand of the same level as devant (as the promodicer have assessed), Ganzklar.

    It has the same specs din except it has a lower Power consumption of 80watts & u can do 2 things with one tv… Coz u can watch a movie then open a miniscreen where you can watch tv or check the net (if there’s a cpu plugged to it),or check what’s on a plugged USB, there’s a lot.
    There are 6 USB ports ata (or was it audio video ata un).

    But I’m not really sure of the brand. I still prefer devant over Ganzklar.

  2. Dan the Samsung 3D Guy says:

    They dont really have a big name, but they are decent quality for the price.

  3. Watch out for buying a 24 inch LCD Devant. They’re not
    compatible for any VHS playback.

  4. I’m from Baguio. I bought a 32″ DX850 Signature Series last October 17, 2010. After about a week, I noticed that the TV’s volume gradually increases from 0 – 25. But when I increase it some more to 26, there is a tremendous surge in the volume which is consistently loud until volume 49. Then the volume disappears at Volume 50 which gradually increase again til Volume 100. I went back to the store where I bought it but they won’t change the unit since apparently their “return policy” is within 24 hours only upon purchase. They referred me to the authorized service center who told me that they will be replacing the TV’s main board to fix the problem, but I need to wait for at least 2 weeks since they will still place the order. We still use the TV but I really felt bad having to invest so much for a TV that has already shown its manufacturing defect just barely a week out of the box. Not sure if you guys had the same bad experience. I sure Hope not.

  5. Their remote control will be unreadable in a few weeks. All their 24 to 32 inch should get a recall coz’ they’re not compatible w/ VHS playback. They can’t fix it unless they will reproduce another set of schematic diagram to alleviate the problem. The product seems affordable but you have to deal with the problems.

    Recently bought a devant 24′ elite series…Full HD resolution running 1080p at 60hz. it makes good use of its HD prowess. My ps3 runs crisp and smooth on bot 1080p and 720p resolution. the only bad thing about this lcd(actually all LCD’s regardless of brand) is its contrast or black color on screen…its not dark enough and tends to look gray rather than black..the light is not totally blocked by the panel so it looks washed up…but if you can tolerate this minor visual gliche’ over all the devant lcd delivers.. a real satisfaction for true gamers like me

  7. agree. i was just supposed to window shop yesterday night at sm megamall until i found we commit to reserved this 32′ devant lcd tv. super nice and very affordable with fee next base dvd player. cant wait to pick it up.

  8. Bought a 32cl900 from Abenson SM North Branch just last december and was quite impressed with it. However, but this am it conked out. It wont turn on after I woke up this morning. I was just using it and put on sleep mode while i was about to sleep but it wont work anymore. Isnt it frustrating when after barely a month it conks out and they wont rePlace it?

  9. After 1yr and 4 months my hdtv devant broke without any major reason lile falling or getting wet and it will cost me 7k to replace the whole board when i went to binondo their main service center they told me when theycalled here that the cpu ic broke thats why and told me” siguro ser naguluhan ung pinakautak nung tv” ang bobo naman pala ng tv nyo! They told me its because of me inputing my usb thumbdrive while watching tv and playing xbox via hdmi why the hell did they even place that in their proddict if its gona break thw whole tv word of advice wag magtipid dun ka na sa branded – here is the complete story in my site http://multiply.com/m/factory/reatain:journal#_%2Fm%2Fitem%2Freatain%3Ajournal%3A39
