1yr warranty vs 3yr warranty!

i have choice of 3 tv's to choose from but they all have a downfall.
LG 26LC2R= 1yr warranty only
AOC L27W551T= 2yr warranty (unknown make and apparenlty no 1:1 pixel mapping)
Mirai DTL-527V200= 3yr warranty (unknown make)

i will be using sky through scart and Xbox 360 via VGA.
which tv would you recommend?

The trusted make LG...you know of them because they are a succesful company and a company doesn't become succesful until it provides reliability and constant high quiality.
You can always get an extended warrenty?

that will cost a extra £100 on top of the £375 but the mirai comes with 3yr warranty and is only £325

Look back and wish you had taken the extened warrenty?
I don't know how to advise you because you seem to have little confidence in electical products?
What after 3 years the cheap one dies?

Depends how long you are thinking of keeping it for anyway. Is it going to be your main TV? Used everyday? If you are going to use it everyday I think I would be tempted to get it.

With TV's can you not claim on house insurance if it goes wrong? Forgive my nievity I don't own a house ergo house insurance lol.

If possible try and get a TV with no warranty :rotfl:
On a serious note for the money the mirai is the best way to go...not only a good set (just look at the reviews) but a great warranty as well...there have been posts one that i remember pretty well a Samsung just out of it's year warranty now deceased....i guess he should have looked @ the warranty and not just the TV lol.

The 360 is stunning on the Mirai and Sky looks alright aswell but it does depend on which channel you watch.

DTL-632V200 is the model I own only £390 from techfever including free next day delivery a bargain so it ends up being about the same as the LG but 32inch and 3 year warranty.

In my opinion sky sports looks the best out of all of the channels. It depends what quality the program is filmed in, alot of older programs can look quite poor but this is to be expected and will be the same with any LCD. I can't recommend the 632 enough, looks fantastic on my 360 also.(I've only tried with component and I hear VGA is better). For the price and the warranty the Mirai is an amazing bargain, yes they are fairly unknown but they do seem to be building up a strong reputation.

Yeah Mirai are building up a good reputation, certainly one to look out for especially with their warranty they are offering.
They are now selling a 37" Mirai TV in Asda. You may see the 32" version soon aswell!
