    I’ve purchased this model but after 2 months the unit just suddenly went dead and it’s so hassle to carry this big TV back to where I purchased to be fixed and after it was fixed the original resolution of the unit has been changed it became blared and dark. I’m so disappointed. I want my money back!!

    Can you install apps in DeVant Smart TVs? Coz I saw in their DeVant 50HMB930 it has a pre-installed Opera Store…

    I’ve purchased this model in October and sad to say I was disappointed on it. On the product specifications, it is indicated that it delivers 120hz of vivid motion but in reality, this is only delivered when you are using the 3D feature. I noticed this when I hooked up my PS3 and Xbox 360. When I turned on the console, I saw in the screen that it is only working with 60Hz of motion rate, 1/2 of the promised 120hz. I called up the tech support and they mentioned that this unit is very honest and he even mentioned “kaya nahuli” when I said it is only delivering 60Hz (according to him, it depends on the source signal). I was expecting that an upscaler is in-place so that any lower motion rate or quality will be automatically upscaled, similar to Samsung TVs (and they are not even 3D tvs).
    They offered to replace the product with a different model which has an upscaler (HMB something) but I still need to pay for the difference in the value of the 2 products. Very disappointed on this…

    I just purchased one of these 50itv630 sets and while the picture is great, I am very disappointed that it doesn’t have digital audio output or audio return channel.  How are you supposed to connect this TV to an external audio system if the TV cannot output digital audio?  All modern TV sets support Audio Return Channel so that whatever is playing on the TV can have audio routed to the audio system.  But this TV does not support that.
    In short, what this means is that playing any videos from DLNA or USB or Internet or any of the HDMI ports that is not coming from the audio system must go through the TV speakers and cannot be pumped into my surround sound system.
    Huge bummer.

    All i can say on Devant Brand TV is buy at your own risk…I bought a 50GL510 on the biggest mall in pasay last July 13,2013 – Saturday TBH i really like the PQ of this tv comes with the vivid motion is superb but last night monday after 3 days while watching movie a vertical line appears in the center it flickers so much it consumes the half part on the screen…i was so very very very disappointed it got broke easily…and im now worrying if the replacement of this item will last for a year or maybe weeks only…whats my assurance that the replacement i will get is lemon??? : (

    I
    just bought the DeVANT 46iTV600 last Dec. 29, 2012 and sad to say, the
    unit just suddenly went dead this afternoon(Jan. 7 ’13 at around
    5:30PM). I was shocked because it was less than 2 weeks and the unit
    already went dead considering that it’s still
    new. Well, i called DeVANT’s service center and reported the problem
    and the DeVANT guy(Jose) i was talking to, after, a bit of discussion,
    realized the unit as a dead set and suggested returning it back to the
    store where i bought if from. I called up Anson’s Makati and they said
    that i just bring the unit together with the receipt for replacement. I
    requested for a packaging box since I already disposed the said box
    after installing it in our house but Anson’s guy said that they can not
    provide a box. I feel quite disappointed with the product since my
    expectation after i purchased it was high and then less than 2 weeks, it
    became dead. I guess DeVANT should improve their Quality Control ‘coz
    if it can’t do this, customers may not patronize the product.

    • Almost same exact story for me. Nothing but problems with these TVs. Just spend a little more money and get a name that’s already trusted – let other people do the experimenting with the unknown brands!
