Dynex TV Review

The Dynex brand is a house brand for big box electronics retailer Best Buy, but it is also available at a number of online retailers. It is a budget brand known primarily for its low cost more than anything else. So are Dynex TVs worth it or should you shell out a little more for a more well known brand?

First of all let's take a look at how much you actually save if you buy a Dynex. A 32” Dynex costs around 250 dollars, which is pretty much the cheapest price available for a television of that size barring a major sale day like Black Friday. TV's of the same size from more established brands like Panasonic are going to set you back more like $399. Both of those prices are for 720p LCD TVs. That's a savings of nearly forty percent.

So it's clear that the savings are very significant, but do you lose anything for spending so little on a set? One common criticism of the Dynex is the amount of heat it produces, which is apparently more than other brands. The consensus is also that the picture is not quite as good as brands, although most people would never notice. But if you put it side by side with a more expensive television you will notice a bit of a difference. It all depends on what you're looking to get out of your television. The sound quality seems to be on par with any other brand, and all Dynex TVs come with the standard amount of A/V and other inputs so you will not miss out there.

In conclusion, the price of a Dynex TV cannot be beat. You will get a solid viewing experience that most likely won't have any serious flaws (at least they don't seem to be more common than other brands). However, the picture is not quite as sharp and it produces significant heat. If money is no object, or if you're a major videophile, you may want to spend a little more. But for the regular TV watcher a Dynex is an excellent choice.
