Summary: Great TV when it works. The problem is the connections to the signal source. 1. No S-Video Connection. 2. All of the provided connections are unreliable. a. When you start the TV there is no picture or sound. Youo must play with the connection (any and all connections) before the connection works. b. The connection is lost with no warning. Again, you must play with the connection before the connection is restored.
Summary: TV was up and running in less than an hour from receipt. The picture quality and sound are ok, when running through the TV receiver, but when playing DVD's both the sound and picture quality are degraded by quite a bit. I had to add some small powered speakers to my VCR/DVD machine (Eagle, arion 2.0) and have had to run the back light to 80, and brightness to 90 in the best mode available on the menu.
Great television, but sound quality is not the best
29 December 2010
Summary: I purchased this television to replace an old box. I read some of the customer reviews and still decided to make my purchase. The television is great if you plan to use it as a second television in your home. The sound quality is not the greatest. I find myself turning the volume up to 50 to actually hear things a bit more clearly when watching my shows. Overall, I'm okay with my purchase.
