I think most people discussing these models here prefer the Venturer.
I did - I exchanged the GE for it. The GE has somewhat inferior picture
quality. The Venturer was better. I didn't have any sound problem with the
Venturer, but I don't have it hooked to stereo.
There is a possibility Target will get something else in 90 days -- so
you could keep rolling them forward. At least our Target clerks
suggested that Target 'liked to have variety of choice'. At least
I am hoping they get the other Venturer -- the model no. ending
in '1' with pass through. (I'm mostly using my Philco now, and am
finding the pass through very useful when playing shows I've
taped on the vcr.)
As to the GE -- it was supposed to be $59.99 -- they are selling the
model that allows the smart antenna. There is another model without
the antenna capability that is listed at $49.99 I was quoted $59.99
on the phone. When I got to the store it was only $49.99 for some
reason. So possibly they have got their pricing figured out now.
