PF, like you, I'm a bit weary of buying products that aren't from a well-known brand with a good reputation, and since I've been trying to get a certain someone to buy me a flat screen TV, I've been forced to hunt around for the best deals and quality... anywho, here's what I do know about this brand (and there isn't much info out there on it, this is more observational info from my hunt for a TV):
- Digistar is a brand that is exclusive to Wal-Mart.
- On average, it's products retail at around $500 less than its brand name counterparts. (To put this into context for you, a 27" Flat screen TV from brands such as Toshiba, Panasonic, JVC, and Samsung retail around $1200 to upwards of $1600.)
- The picture quality and sound are not of extremely good quality, but for an extra $500 in your pocket, you can't really complain.
- Overall, I'd give the Digistar TV's a B-. I've seen slightly better, I've seen much better, and I've seen much worse. So, I'd say enjoy it... oh, and hint to your husband that the extra $500 or so could go toward something else.
Just kidding, of course.
