Summary: It is uncanny how television technology has advanced in just the last three years alone. If it all seems like incrementalism, from 720p to 1080p, 120hz, wide angle LCD's and thinner profiles, the end result is television sets that are affordable, but rival what was top of the class just a couple of years earlier. This set represents a beginning edge of that curve, with very middle of the road features competently executed.
Summary: Ultimately, this device begs the question - Given the current state of the art in TVs and DVD players - Why would a company develop and market a 720p, DVD combo product? - 720p refers to the vertical resolution of the set (a bigger number tends to be better). While 720p may have been the standard about 5 or more years ago, and 1080p was a key selling point as little as 2-3 years ago, all of that has been bypassed with the current emphasis on refresh rate and 3D...
Summary: I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to set this up, it was simply a matter of attaching the base, connecting a few wires and plugging it in. The set scanned the cable system while I inserted the batteries into the remote, we finished about the same time and I was ready to start watching TV. The hardest part of the whole thing was getting the heavy monster it replaced out of the way. The picture is quite clear, the color and sound are both good.
720p is perfect for 26" TV set - Magnavox did it right!

Summary: This TV happily lives in my bedroom - a great all in 1 set, perfectly priced and spec'd. The TV does 2 jobs in my house. Keeps my kitties occupied during the day, with it's DVD/CD inputs, I either leave it on with music or tune it to Animal Planet when I'm gone all day at work. I like the slim TV sets, because my old 'tube' TV was the favorite spot for kitties to nap on, and I always felt nervous if one lost balance and fell off.
Summary: I didn't think I wanted a TV in my bedroom till I got this. It's small enough to fit on my bureau and bright enough so that I can see it just fine from my bed and it's got that neat DVD player included, so it was no fuss and no muss for me, wire wise, just the plug and the cable. So, how would I rate the viewing experience? Just fine. In fact I found that I hardly watched TV on my big Sony in the living room. So onto Craigslist is went and it sold the next day.
Easy to set up, decent picture but not as bright as other brands...

Summary: After my husband moved out recently and took the TV in the bedroom with him, I wanted something that I could use but didn't want to spend a ton of money. Also, I don't watch THAT much TV in the bedroom -- usually while folding laundry and putting stuff away or when I'm sick so I didn't need something that big.
Summary: I am not very technical, but I did need a new tv for my spare bedroom so I went ahead and got this one. As the last reviewer said it is really easy to setup up. You just have to screw 4 screws into the base and plug it in. It comes with two batteries for the remote, even with the batteries in this remote is very light. All the controls: power, volume, channel are below the screen so it is easy to turn on and off from the tv or the remote.
Summary: For those of you used to the 70 pound 26" CRT-based television sets from the old days, you'll be shocked when you easily pull this 17 pound LCD-based television from the box. The TV can be quickly unpacked, maneuvered, and installed by one person without needing any assistance. Start out by placing the set upside down on a soft area to install the tabletop base with four screws. That's the end of the construction process.
