    Christ, I can't make up my mind.
    I'm changing my duff (new) pany for a 32" Loewe and just don't know which one to go for...Mimo or Aventos
    Read as much as I can about them both, so if any users can give me that little bit extra info I'll be a happy man.
    All negatives and positives for both sets will be appreciated.
    Don't want to be pushy but would like to order by Tuesday night.
    Chris

    Can't find on the Loewe site if the Mimo accepts NTSC signals for American playstation 2's.

    Hi again M8,

    Also changing my Duff PD30 but going for the PF2 instead. If not I would go for the Aventos.

    I think getting married and having a mortgage were a lot easier decisions to make:D

    I hope it works out Ok in the end.

    I believe the Mimo & Aventos share the same internal components etc. so I think the decision comes down to your choice of which you prefer the styling of. The Aventos also usually comes with a stand, the Mimo doesn't (though 2 expensive ones are available for it).

    I have the current Loewe catalogue and it states that the Mimo (& Aventos) accept NTSC, PAL, SECAM & NTSC 4.43 MHz.

    I'm getting a strange feeling of Deja Vu here......

    Yes to NTSC. Remember this is 2003 and Loewe we are talking about here.

    Like i said, Mimo and Aventos are identical bar the exterior styling.

    The Vitros also is the same as the Mimo/Aventos. The Basalt Vitros is one of the best lookin TVs ever in my book!

    After reading comments on this site and seeing one with a terrestrial source, I'm tempted by the Aventos myself. It depends on personal taste. The Mimo looks good but I don't mind the looks of the Aventos, so can't justify the extra £120 or so myself.

    Unhelpfully the Aventos at JL in Bluewater was disconnected on Saturday. I still need to demo one with a digital TV source. They weren't too keen on me moving the Freeview box from a nearby TV. HoF's looked good with a DVD though. I'm still not entirely convinced about the poor aspect ratio control so need a demo for that.

    JL did have an ex-demo Vitros (I think) in dark grey (I'm not sure about the official Loewe colour name) for £999 but the case had a couple of marks.

    I looked on Loewe's website on Saturday evening. It stated the all Loewe's now carry a three year manufacturer's warranty. Can anyone confirm whether this applies to all retailers in Britain?

    If so, I could buy one on my Citibank card to get 3+1 years warranty (same as Barclaycard deal). I would lose one years warranty, but wouldn't need the bother of a JL pricematch and could support a smaller retailer.

    Purchased my Mimo in August and the stated manufacturer warranty was two years.

    Sorry, forgot to mention it stated the three year cover applied from the end of the IFA Berlin show, at the beginning of this month. I presume it applies to the German market but hope it applies in the UK too.
