Are you sure it's Lexsur and not Lexar, a company that also makes memory cards and the like?

I can't find anything about Lexsur or Lexar LCD TVs on Google though... so that could well be the case. A lot of people make the mistake of assuming that two TVs from different manufacturers are the same though because they have similar or identical panels. Samsung are one of the biggest LCD panel manufacturers and their screens end up in a lot of LCDs, even although many otehr things are different. Maybe the guy in the store was referring to that?

LEXSOR, Had one of those,sent it back to currys a bit rapid. it has an inherant prob with the black,so if you view a scene that is inside a building,i.e. (the bar at the rovers return) the picture is so dark you cannot see the features of anyones face, even with the brightness on full.

Manager at currys spoke to Mastercare who said at first that it had not got a fault,but after a bit of stick they admitted to the fault on the lower price range L.C.Ds. not just the Lexsor.

I have been back for another look at these and found that it is the 32" lcd which has contrast of 800.1. The smaller ones have a contrast of 600.1.
They all seem to have a nice picture even with Sky showing on them.

The shop I work in sell loads of these TV's (we also get a lot of returns as they tend to have a few problems too, but then again for the amount we sell I am not too suprised the quantity that comes back).

As for who makes them I think it's Harwa as the Lexsor box is a Harwa box with a Lexor sticker stuck on top of the Harwa logo.

Also to confuse matters even more the remote looks very strangly like very old Panasonic CRT remotes (design wise). Plus to confuse you even more ITI plasma remotes have the same design too.

All in all the TV is not bad for the price, but if you can get together another £100-£200 your money will get you a better set imo.
