    Naiko is basically a marketing name for various cheap TVs (often seen at Makro).
    All their products are low end , some made in Hong Kong and China. Wouldn't be at all surprised to see the name on some Turkish TVs from Vestel also (Beko and some low end models from big brand names also use Vestel).
    I once had a 14-inch Naiko NICAM portable in the bedroom ; it worked ok for a couple of years, then developed an A/V switching fault . I was able to prove that the fault lay in the main "jungle chip" on the PCB (and found a fix involving an adding a transistor switch externally on a piece of veroboard ).
    It then went on for another 2 years before packing up beyond economic repair.

    If you can genuinely find out how many returns they get you might be able to make a more informed decision.
    For that info you probably need an inside contact in your local Makro.
