You can get a 32 inch Sony LCD for free if you sign up for 28 months of broadband internet.
Not a bad deal at all. The monthly rate is pretty good too.

Just make sure you know the cost if you ever have to break contract and don;t make the 28 months.

yes I decided to change to the 10 mega, just for the monitor, even throwing in the towel after one year, it is worth the bailout money, although I'm hoping the service will improve, from Singnet too, after our verbal debate over the last six months..

The last 12 weeks they have been monitoring my dis-connection rate, normally happens after midnight for a couple of hours, Had to demand some action, and they have been able to see my downtime, for the past year, engineers been out 3 times, and do exactly the tests, that i do, which was driving me nuts. been ok the last week.

I actually invest in Hannstar, Chimei, AU optronics and chunhwa picture tube, who produce also for samsung korea, becuase Korea cannot meet demand.

The Taiwanese have moved production to China two years ago, and have overtook Samsung for production capacity. So its the same old story in many cases, the components come from the same production lines, just with Brand names and generic names on,, although there is difference in specifications and price.

I have seen Singapore Companies selling old models as new, becuase they have their own brand name on, although the stock is old models, so one does have to be careful, when purchasing. The sales teams are just out to sell.

Just an update on a comment I made earlier re analogue reception. From what I've heard, Singapore plans on ceasing analogue reception in 2015 to be replaced by DVB-T (digital) reception.

Just something to keep in mind re extra expenses later on if your new tv doesn't already have a digital tuner built-in.
