6 April 2012
Summary: I got this hdtv on sale from another retailer and decided to give it to my son on xmas for his xbox. we both love it, me because of the price, size...not too big...not too small, and picture quality. Him because of all the inputs. He has the older xbox 360 that use's the red,blue,green cable for hd connection and on this tv the picture is excellent.
Pros: Better than 1080p horizontal resolution large good viewing angles. Gets OTA HD channels.
Cons: Does not sleep if the input from the computer (VGA) input stops then it displays a bright blue screen all day and all night, 365 days a year. For years I have configured my computer to sleep (and hence switch off the VGA output) after a short period of time. All monitors I have owned so far, go into power saver mode (no output on the screen, and the monitor sleeps). This one just displays a bright blue screen that lights up the entire room. You need to keep your compu...
Summary: I would certainly not consider myself a 100% or nothing type of reviewer, but my experience with this monitor and mwaves handling of the situation has been less than fortunate. If youre looking for a 16:10 monitor, look elsewhere. If youre looking for a 1080p tv, there are comparable prices of more reputable manufacturers. I used to work in best buy services and have personally owned 12 lcd tv/monitor screens over the years (including those found on laptops).
Pros: 1920x1200, acceptable response rate for gaming, a plethora of connection types, good on paper
Cons: Weak/Incorrect colors, Dead pixels abound, Developed wavy burnt border mwave must be familiar with by now I have several waves along the top right edge of the monitor that developed only a month or so after standard use. In an attempt to compensate for this damaged area, the monitor has adjusted the image on the screen, but opposite the way it should have, so the taskbar and titlebar of maximized windows are outside the viewing area of the screen regardless of the res...
Summary: Poorly refurbished: Screen itself is leaking causing a large wavy black border, this is a known problem with Hannsprees larger screens and the refurb warranty is not long enough to cover this. The large black dead zones are due to leaks in the LCD, a result of a poorly manufactured screen. You will not be able to obtain service from Hannspree Hanns-G once the 90 day refurb warranty expired.
Pros: The product was poorly refurbished. 5 days after warranty expired, the LCD developed a large black wavy edge due to the LCD itself leaking. The monitor was gently used and the cause was a defect in the actual LCD. The refurbishing process should have caught this. Hannspree refuses to provide any service beyond charging more than the cost of the monitor itself in order to replace the defect screen.
Cons: Poorly refurbished. 90 day refurb warranty is insufficient to detect defects in the screen itself. I deeply regret my purchase and advise that you look for something with a longer warranty and avoid my bad experience.
Summary: Overall Im happy with the unit. I had some small problems with the first one I got, but MWAVE was easy to deal with for the RMA. Overall the shipping cost me 13 bucks, but its alright and they have been very communicative and easy to work with on the whole thing. Im a happy customer.
Pros: Beautiful picture. I really like the resolution 1920x1200 is much better for gaming... really a nice piece of hardware.
Cons: Doesnt automatically sleep when idle. Not a huge deal, just something that is less than perfect :
Summary: Wow what an excellent TV. I purchased a refurb 26 Vizio LED LCD TV and the picture quality on this refurb Hannspree looks just as clear and bright, despite its larger size and CCFL backlighting. Despite being a refurb, this Hannspree has NO dead pixels, while the Vizio has about 5. Hannspree is a great quality brand that is popular in Asia. Whats sad is this company doesnt have the brand recognition it deserves in the USA.
Pros: Full 1080p, Unique aspect ratio, USB port can play music or turn into a giant digital photo frame.
Cons: No accessories, just a remote and a manual. Didnt even come with batteries. Only 2 HDMI ports.
