Flawed LCD TV

RC, Amazon
13 July 2011
  • Summary: I read the review about the overscan. I already bought the TV and confirmed the issue. Firmware upgrade does not allow for correction. I'm heading out now to return the TV.

Washed out brightness and color!

Hodo, Amazon

  • Summary: If you're not sitting right in front of it, forget it! Even then it is not nearly as crisp and bright as my 13 year old Panasonic 32 inch TV. This is made by Funai--hence the low price and quality. Compared to Sharps, Toshibas and Vizios I've seen it has a very poor picture.

Followup

  • Summary: I don't know how this compares to other HD tvs, but I am not impressed by this one.

Avoid if using analog inputs

Alan H., Newegg
22 January 2011
  • Summary: I went with this to use legacy equipment and chose the 1080 resolution so that converting is done simply by doubling the 480 SD images and it does that well. The aspect ratio is maintained for the analog inputs.
  • Pros: Many inputs, 3 hdmi, 2 composite/SVHS, 1 componet. Digital broadcasts and digital inputs look great, but....
  • Cons: I got this so I could continue to use a non-hdmi satellite receiver and a component out dvd player. Analog sources look extremely muddy. The predefined settings have practically no color saturation to them. You have to turn off the energy saver mode to get the backlight bright enough and crank up...

Disappointed

Alec Bentley, Amazon
28 December 2010
  • Summary: We have just set the TV up. Color of the plastic surround is black but all illustrations make it look green. Sound quality is terrible. If you buy this TV add the cost of additional speakers because the inboard mounted ones are tinny with no base at all.
