I know Vizio is in general reviled among the experts of home theatery-ness for being an impostor among the high-end brands, however it is atleast a name people have heard and can talk to you about. In contrast I have not heard much at all about HANNSpree. In my (seemingly un-ending) research for tv deals however, I heard somewhere (dont remember where, sorry) that they are a relatively well respected computer monitor manufacturer. So, does anybody know anything regarding the brand quality and/or reputations of these companies?
I could really use some help in making this decision; Ive spent entirely too many nights surfing for tv deals and info 'till 5am...I know alot of people are just going to say "get a Samsung" or something but the big brands are just too expensive. My parents have drawn a line in the sand at $400 and I want something in the 32"-42" range, which I can also use as a secondary computer/HTPC monitor (thus I want 1080p and >60Hz). If you guys know of any deals Im missing that fit these criteria, or reasons why I should change my criteria, Id really appreciate hearing about them.
