    Not entirely...

    They inflate the prices of monitors via tax for a silly reason, I agree. However, they receive more VAT revenue by doing so. Whereas the pricing of tv's etc isn't controlled by them, but they still get their money by forcing you to purchase a TV license with each tv set.

    Silly? Very. Stupid? Not if you're in it for the money.

    Moral of the story? When you buy these things it's like selling stock options. NEVER look back at what COULD have been. You'll commit suicide.

    p.s I'm still enjoying the TV
    True. I bought a 15k Samsung Series 5 (or 4) 42" LCD about 2 years ago. The unit still rocks but hell if I look at prices now I wanna die...

    And that's why we can't have nice things in SA.

    First the government meddles, lines their pockets and then blames it on Apartheid.

    I'm thinking of buying a new TV. Just something small, a 32" HD would already do nicely. Mostly for XBOX purposes. Thanks for the article!

    I remember when I got my first 32" LCD TV for the same price now you can get a 50" sigh, times have changed.
