never heard of the brand. SIGMAC sounds like a good name for a gun, not a TV brand.

don't know if you're buying it online or at a local Frys store, but check what their return policy is. the online site says there is a 30 day satisfaction guarantee, but there are restrictions:

Televisions (24" or larger)

Refunds cannot be given on televisions 24" and larger. In-home service is offered by the manufacturer on large TV's and may be your most convenient option. Defective items may be returned within 30 days of the purchase date for replacement or upgrade. Please insure sufficient packaging is used to protect any return shipments. Customer is responsible for any damage caused due to insufficient packaging.

If I'm going to consider buying this, ill definitely do it in store so that i can look at the television. There is a fry's close to me, so thats not a problem. but if someone were to say that the brand is very poor quality, customer service is garbage, and the tv will only last a week, i wont even give it the time of day. But if it is still relatively unknown i may make the drive

@xxtheonexx: there doesn't appear to be a whole lot of info out there on that particular TV. here's a thread i found:

Never heard of them either. It's probably a case of "you get what you pay for". For me, $800 is still a pretty significant amount of money, so if it craps out in a year, that's a big ouch.

If you still decide to go with it, definitely get an extended warranty from SquareTrade or something.

Yea a squaretrade warranty is a must in this case. I will most likely be updating this again tonight once i check out the TV in person tonight. If anyone else has any input on the brand, feel free. But like i said, i will update tonight with my personal experience in case any one else is on the fence on this deal/the brand. Thanks for your help thus far.

If anyone cares, i did check out the TV. the salesperson said that Sigmac is a new brand, supposedly uses LG screen panels, and is going to be the best deal for the money. The HD was pretty good. The TV was sitting next to a $2000 Samsung LED tv, and obviously the picture on the Samsung looked better, but the HD on the Sigmac wasn't bad at all. I tried out the passive 3d and it was as good as expected. I still think active is miles beyond passive 3d, but its also a lot more expensive and the glasses tend to be more uncomfortable. The passive 3d wasn't as "deep" as the active but it was definitely good enough. Also, the tv did have 2D to 3D conversion. But I forgot to try it out, so i cant comment on that. The only thing i didnt like about the TV was that when it switched quickly between two scenes, it did the whole jagged lines flashing on the screen. If you dont know what im talking about, go see an LED in stores. the samsung was also doing the same thing, so it was to be expected.

I just bought one yesterday and hooked it up last night. It has a great picture and the 3D looks great too. Obviously I can't speak to the future service of the set, but it has a one year Warranty and Fry is a big time operation that I feel would stand behind their merchandise. I have two other flat panel TV's that have brands that I had never heard of at the time that I purchased them and they have now been in service for a few years with no problems, so I'm hopeful that the Sigmac performs as well.

I purchased a SIGMAC 32" LCD with 1080P about 4 months ago. It has been great. The competition was $100 more, I paid $260. The picture is good and I have had no problems. I purchased it at COMPUSA and there were all the brands around it. This TV has been good sofar and I recommend it in the lower price category.I have a Samsung and the case etc are similar.

I bought a 55 inch tv with 3d from sigmac online i payed little over $800.00 plus 3year warranty and shipping all little under a grand and i love this set crystal clear picture with my hi def feeds im happy.

I also own a Sigmac 32" I bought for $250 8 months ago and I use it as a monitor. It is definitely a good brand. I took a shot without knowing about the brand. I bought it online and not one person had rated the tv. I checked back 1 month later and there were about 300 people that had rated the tv. Not one gave the tv less than 4 stars out of 5. I would give mine a 5. I have a 32" samsung that I paid $600 (and that was a great deal at that time) and it is not much better. I even have to turn down the tv because it too bright. lol

ps. Im glad you bought it. hope you are just as happy as me....

I purchased a 32" two days ago. So far so good. I have a problem with playing anything from the USB port. Has anyone got an idea how to go abt that?
The picture quality is great but it heats up too much.
I love it though

This well-meaning (I'm sure) company has a support number that is not answering (fast busy signal) but still has a website---sigmacusa.com

Listed on the Over-the-counter stock market, there is no activity or share value that I can see.

This may mean that the company is no longer doing business. The downside of this is that should you require a replacement Remote Control, there will be no way to get one.

As far as I know, the "universal" remotes have not heard of sigmac. The strategy here might be to get a "learning remote" and train it before you lose the original....
