Who the heck is Dynex?

    The web site ...

    http://www.dynexproducts.com/t-contact.aspx

    .... states that "repairs and returns under manufacturer warranty are
    handled by your local retail provider". This suggests that Dynex may
    be a department store brand.

    The "Where to Shop" link directs you to ...

    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?id=cat12090&type=page&isCarFi=null

    .... which suggests that Dynex may be a Best Buy brand.

    The following document may give a clue as to the identity behind the
    brand.

    Universal Remote Control Codes:

    It appears that Dynex and Insignia may be from the same stable.

    Many of the remote codes appear to be used by Orion, Emerson, Memorex,
    Sansui, Sylvania, and Zenith. Other models use Mitsubishi codes.

    I am shopping for a plasma TV for my mother-in-law and came across a
    Dynex which is $200 less than similar sets by known names.

    OK, repair guys, what's the scoop on Dynex?

    TIA

    Isn't that the house brand at Buy More?

     
  4. Why even ask a question like that? Did you ever see the picture on a Dynex?
    I did one time at Pest Buy and it was uglier than Ashleigh Cope's snatch.

    When the television needs repair, which is usually about 3 hours after the
    warranty expires on those cheap brands, then forget it, it's not serviceable
    as they do not service them just give you a new one (should one fail during
    the warranty period.)

    In the long run, you probably won't be saving $200.00.

    Dynex is the best Buy house brand name. Usually these units are nearly
    identical to the actual manufacturer's brand name unit, but have Dynex
    labeling and exterior cases.

    If you decide to buy one, hook it up to your PC and capture the EDID.
    Device Manager, or your registry, should identify the TV using the A/N
    code in the EDID EEPROM. Hopefully the data will identify the original
    manufacturer rather than Dynex.

    For example, here is a dump of the EDID EEPROM in a HP L1502 15"
    monitor:

    The above data were extracted from the following key in the Windows
    registry:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Enum\Monitor\HWP2600\PCI_VEN_5333&DEV_8811_BUS_00&DEV_02&FUNC_00]

    It's better than the retarded hate you spew on alt.tv.game-shows


    http://groups.google.com/group/alt.tv.game-shows/topics

    Now, try and deny that. Bitch.
     
  8. I wouldn't deny it for a second, bitch. In fact, not only would I not deny
    it, I would tell you why I did it - because Harvey Daye Junior is an
    emo-kid-fucking jerkoff and I'll probably do it again. Now if you want to
    save $200.00 and buy a cheaper plasma, and teach me a lesson while you're at
    it, then that's your prerogative. Now many people including myself, will get
    turned on by the lower price, just to have the motherfucker fail shortly
    after the warranty. They contact the company and spend hours on hold, that
    is only if the company is still in business. Cheaper electronics
    manufacturers don't support their products, just replace them if they fail
    under warranty. And after the warranty, **** it as it is more than unlikely
    any television repairman can repair it. This isn't the case with name brand
    manufacturers which supply parts and service manuals to television
    repairmen. So back to the electronics store it is to finally get the name
    brand at the higher price, paying more than if you just went with the name
    brand to begin with.

    I see quite a few forum posts, some from people who work for Best Buy,
    claiming that LG is the manufacturer behind the Dynex TV brand.

    Suck my dick, bitch
     
  11. Why don't you get Harvey Daye, Jr to suck your dick. You're both in Ohio.

    Wait a minute, you are Harvey.

    I forgot.
