    Question Shopping for a TV - From where should I get one?

    Right now what I have is a 17" crt monitor-tv card combo that is barely passes for a tv system. Just recently I got the funds to buy a 'proper' tv and after some research I decided to go with sony w700c 32". Now my question is, do I walk to my nearest sony showroom and get it or there's a better(read:cheaper) place?

    And I would appreciate if someone who owns this tv gives some feedback (ie, what sucks and what doesn't).

    Chowdhury electronics used to give good discounts to BG members iirc. Startech also sells TVs. Both of these should be cheaper than official showrooms but they only provide service warranty afaik.

    The price of this particular model seems to vary, some sellers are selling it around 32k while other's prices are around 36k. Both Chowdhury electronics and Startech's prices are around 35k, but these might be old prices that haven't been updated.

    Haven't found the official price anywhere, guess I'll go take a look at a showroom.

    Price in Sony-Rangs is around 42K, I checked few weeks back. You may also take a look at 40" r352c which is also same price as W700C 32" - I am also confused about where to buy from. Official dealer price and price at places like chowdhury electronics vary much but off-course there is this warranty thing. And Sony-Rangs is now providing 2 years repair/replace warranty.

    Yeah, also checked that out but decided to go with w700c because of it's built in wifi for screen casting. I could buy a chromecast, but it'd be an extra expense.

    R352C has the same function. Difference is in number of built-in apps.

    Where are you buying from anyway?

    Haven't decided yet. I'll check out the shops first.

    Edit: Checked the official store, w700c is priced at 45k and r552c is 40k, so I guess that leaves the other places.

    Ya. Both are priced around 35k outside official stores.

    Please post a review once you buy one.
