Teac Lcd Brilliant

Recommended Posts

To be fair, they were decent 3 years ago for the price. Brilliant might have been pushing it.

It'd be interesting to know how many units out of this series of TVs are still going strong with zero problems

42" still going, although it's been relegated to kitchen/family room area duties.

I certainly don't regret the purchase, its been a great workhorse for years.

I was idssapointed that it wouldnt take 1920x1080 from the 360 over VGA, but the 360 now is used in the games room, with a pj and 88" screen :)

Good to hear Dave. I remember seeing a 37" in one of the JB city stores running a 360 and PS3 all the time; it was still there last time I checked and that's 2+ years of god knows how many hours use day in and day out.

As mentioned in my last post and I think I PMed you about earlier in the year, the banding on my set has gotten much worse, which is a shame. I'm looking forward to an upgrade though so I can see what some decent blacks look like! The Teac was a decent starter HD set, despite its issues, but it's amazing how archaic it already is compared to what's available today.

G'day guys... nearly 3 years on and guess what... I still love the TV but i am having one last issue!

The HDMI cable has been sat in there for 3 years nearly with the wire pulling the plug at an angle. Looks like one of the connections internally (solder joints) has failed so unless i push the hdmi cable toward the tv i get a cyan cast and then the signal drops out completely.

I have just called Teac and they are coming out friday to sort it out! If a TV has its final moment just short of its 3 year warranty i cannot complain! :)

I can say tho that apart from this its been great.. and considering how high end technology wise it was at the time (not compared to now obviously!) it was a great buy. It has been used solidly from my HTPC in that 3 years.

I'm sure it will get replaced sometime soon, but then it will get relagated to the games room where the WII can follow it!

Thanks

Steve

My 4235A has the same problem - the HDMI socket no longer works at all. You're lucky if someone from Teac are coming to your home as I've been told I have to transport the set myself 50km to the nearest service center. Warranty runs out at the end of November and I also need the banding (which has gotten much worse lately and there's a really distinct vertical line right down the middle of the screen all the time on all inputs) looked at.

Finally replacing the Teac with a Panasonic 50" V10 tomorrow. Will be nice to watch a set where the whites don't burn my retinas and I can make out some kind of black detail! Even though it has needed to be repaired multiple times already within the warranty period I have a soft spot for this TV and it has served us (reasonably) well.

My TEAC turns 5 in a week or two - still performs flawlessly (touch wood, or maybe not (hehe upgrade)). Used mainly in the family room adjacent to the kitchen as a news/soapy/background noise tv whilst cooking/cleaning/internetting. Also gets some xbox 360 use. PQ is still great. Noticed that it probably take about 5 minutes for motion blur to settle down, but no big deal. Love it.
