I also got one from Home Depot. I had bought the MAG from Staples earlier and stopped by Home Depot out of curiousity, only to find these 32" TV's advertised at $599 selling for $478. Couldn't pass that one up, especially having a 10% off coupon for club members! Returned the MAG. Since I have no idea who Element is, I went ahead and paid $140 for the +4 year maintenance contract, thus insuring that this TV should last me 5 years.
Unfortunately, the audio system on my TV is making intermittent popping sounds, especially during news broadcasts (maybe because there's no background music?). Sorry qball680, but for watching standard NTSC broadcasts, I'd prefer a functional sound system so I don't have to turn any other components on. I like the TV enough otherwise, though, so I plan on keeping the TV after getting the audio problems addressed.
md500, I'd be surprised if this actually does QAM, although that would sure be nice. I tried and it didn't work for me, and I'm pretty sure there are still in-the-clear QAM broadcasts on my cable system. My TV model is FLX-3202 with a Sep 2006 date, and I can't find any references to QAM on the box or in the manual. The HDTV coaxial input on the back says 'HDTV/AIR', whereas the SD coaxial input says "TV/CABLE" which further implies that QAM is not supported. But, my set does show in input option of "CABLE/AIR" like md500 reported.
I don't think we can't get QAM out of this TV, so ... are there any inexpensive (< $100) QAM STB boxes out there?
