Summary: Had an Olevia Tv LT26HVE and I liked that TV a lot , until I had problems with it. Then just Looking for something similiar to what I had . Discovered the Olevia L 527V 27" 720P and it exceeded my expectations. For a Tv this size it's very light to move ( one person ), beautiful picture quality and sound . Reminds me of my old TV with new features , easier to use remote control. The only negative for me , have to learn the new menu of features ( a lot of features ).
Summary: AFTER 8 MONTHS OF OWNING THIS TV WITCH STARTED OUT TO BE A GOOD TV THE PICTURE WENT OUT SHOULD HAVE BEEN UNDER FACTORY WARNTEE 4 MONTHS LATER AND MANY PHONE CALLS TO THE COMPANY THE EXTENED WARNTEE TOOK OVER THEY DON'T HAVE PARTS FOR THEIR TVS SO IT COULDN'T BE FIXED AND YOU DON'T GET ALL YOUR MONEY ABACK IT ENDED UP COSTING $250.
Summary: I got this Olivia 527V over a year ago and has performed flawlessly using a cable box for HD and an UP/DVD (with $3 HDMI cable from Amazon) that will play just about anything, including videos from a zip drive. As others have reported, the setup is confusing, even if some guy or gal got an award for the novel spinning choices icons. When I turned in my cable box I needed help and the first "help line" gal I got in some Spanish-speaking country had the wrong script.
Summary: Pros: Lightwight, a lot of input options, HD tuner, really really good picture, 1080I . Cons: not really a con for this price range , the speaker of the TV is kinda bad but decent for normal TV bottom line : great tv for the money.
Summary: Don't buy a Syntax Olevia! I bought one and it died almost to the day the warranty went out. Customer service said I would have to pay to ship it back and pay the parts and labor to fix it and that would cost over half of the TV's cost. They wouldn't offer to help with anything and they said they lost my registration card, the same one they used to call me with to ask me how I liked it a week after I bought the TV.
Summary: First, CR likes this TV line naming one of their larger models a best buy. So, yes quality is very good for the price. There is no discussion here about size. I have read (in CR) that many/most people who buy tvs smaller than 40 inches wish they had bought bigger models. In my small apartment 40 inches is too big, but a 32 inch would be ideal, and this 27 inch tv would be fine, I think. From another site: "Is this the right size HDTV for your room?
Summary: I purchased this set on the 10th of December and brought it home. Looked like a good deal based on the reviews. On the 12th, I unpacked it and hooked it up. Couldn't get it to receive a signal from cable and DVBDs played with all the wrong colors. Thinking it was a setup problem, I spent hours with the setup manual and the remote, only to find out it didn't help. On the 13th I contacted Olevia customer service.
Summary: When I first got this home had a problem with the remote being slow. Seemed every time you press a button it would take a second or two for the tv to respond. But after mounting the tv higher off the ground the remote worked nicely. The menu also felt problematic when trying to scroll one way it goes just the opposite. But the main functions that you access through the menu are conveniently located right on the remote with a touch of a button.
