Dynex® - 22" Class / 720p / 60Hz / LCD HDTV Model: DX-L22-10A

It's hard to buy local when Gordon Campbell's BC Liberals continue to deceive its citizens and increase taxes with things like the proposed HST. Because of that, I will be spending my tourist dollars outside of BC.

We took an extended trip down to Oregon and took advantage of no sales tax to save a lot of money on a basic TV for our travel trailer RV. I originally bought one locally here at a Best Buy in Canada. It was a 19" Insignia (another Best Buy brand) LCD TV that was $200, which I thought was reasonable. Plus, I had some Reward Dollars saved up that would have made it cheaper to buy up north.

However, after trying it out on our next camping trip in Washington state, I discovered that it lacked a digital tuner. Having no digital tuner made it useless to me because the US switched over to digital-only broadcasts earlier this year. I checked the other products in stores in Canada and anything with a digital tuner cost significantly more. On top of that the BC government charges a recycling fee to the cost of any TV--in this case, $25. I also wasn't happy with the size because it looked as if there was space for a larger TV. The 22" Dynex was on sale for $220 USD, no sales tax and no levy made it a super killer deal.

  1. It is time to read Vizio TV reviews if you are really interested in purchasing a model from Vizio. The company is slowly gaining in popularity and now commands a good share of the HDTV market along with Sony and Samsung The manufacturer has provided Sensio XpanD shutter
    glasses which are necessary to be able to watch the 3D effects on the TV.
