Advice is alway easy to come by. Valuable, unbiased advice isn’t as common as you might think. Advice on LCD vs Plasma, which PVR (hard disc / DVD recorder) to buy, which amplifier or speakers sounds best for your budget is all very confusing. Retail stores generally aren’t really looking out for your best interests. As soon as you have decided to pay for the goods, they’re often thinking about their next sale. So forget about backup service once you leave the store. That’s the modern world we live in and most people want the cheapest price for their equipment. As a result, high turn over of equipment for the retail stores is the only way they can turn a profit.
Connect Multimedia offer purchasing advice to our clients and we do not collect commission, we simply charge an hourly rate to thoroughly research which system is best for your situation. We know which questions to ask and can guarantee that you'll be happy with our selection.
We recommend www.cnet.com.au for a list of independent reviews. They often have reviews on the latest models of TVs, DVDs, PVRs and amplifiers. With the Pros and Cons listed, it's good advice.
