I was seeing some weird sh*t yesterday. There were 300+ units but not available to ship to my postal code, but on my mobile browser there was no problem. Not sure if this means there are legitimate limitations in some parts of the country, or if it's just a bug in their system.

Most people prefer a VA panel in a budget TV, unless they have a setting where they need a wide viewing angle, then they go IPS. VA's have narrow viewing angles but darker blacks. IPS are the opposite.

I'm confused too. Not sure if these are people who have had a bad experience with Element or just people who only buy Samsung, Sony, or LG.

I would rank Element below TCL and Hisense. The parent company owns other brand names designed for supermarkets like Westinghouse Electronics.

I wouldn't be too sure about the quality of materials. Assembling them in the US. in South Carolina, which is a 'Right to Work' state, means that workers could be making $12/hr.Spinner wrote: ↑ I would rank Element below TCL and Hisense.

It's assembled in USA which adds nothing of value other than perceived quality. Something else has to give for the expensive labor, so it's likely quality of the materials.

TVs today are built in China using automation. Look at this Hisense factory video for example. $12/hr is expensive when robots in China are probably assembling for less. Somebody is paying for those inefficient and unskilled American workers.MrFrugal1 wrote: ↑ I wouldn't be too sure about the quality of materials.

I'm not sure what their business model is, but it may typical government (taxpayer) subsidised enterprise where they build the brand up then sell it off once the contractual obligations expire.
This is nothing new.
