Sony Bravia 46NX720 wtih Bunchin Stand

I have a Samsung 46" LCD TV that is almost 4 years this July 2012. The wife and I bought the TV at Harvey Norman Millenia Walk, after we bought our place in the east. When we bought the TV, I opted out from the extended warranty that was offered. How was I to know that I would be expecting problems from the TV, exactly 3 years from my purchase date. 3 years is the standard warranty from Samsung. 

At first, there was the clicking sound whenever I turned on the TV. Its a common Samsung problem, according to Google. This was resolved couple of days before warranty expiry. 

A few months later, there was an image problem. According to the technician that came, this is a much bigger problem. The LCD screen needs to be change. Expected amount is SGD1K and warranty of that is only 1 month. He recommend its better to buy a new TV.

The wife and I decided not to get another Samsung. And we got a Sony, NX720 46". The selling factor for me was the integrated WiFi. I could not connect any Smart TV via network cables in the living room. Another factor was the cost of this TV was cheaper than the same one selling at the IT Show at the same time. Freebies are the same.

Fixing the flat panel display is now a one man operation.

The TV came with a  'Bunchin Stand'. Its a display stand with additional active speaker system. It is connected to the TV via HDMI cable.



Setting up the stand.

After the stand is prepared, the flat panel display was lifted up and balanced on top of its slim box.  I had to help out as the technician assembled the stand.

I managed to take this picture, while holding the tv with one hand.

The assembled stand. You can see 2 HDMI port. One is connected directly from the HDMI ARC port of the TV. The other goes to the Blu Ray player.

    1. Thank you. You are my first comment on this blog.

      In terms of design, Sony still wins hands down. But I feel the Samsung LED TV is getting very aggressive in their design and technology.
