A satisfied buyer

F. Han "hooked on movies", Amazon

  • Summary: Just got this a few days ago at a great sale price (not from this site though), and I am quite pleased with the image and sound. The 47 inch screen may be a bit large for the room, but when it comes to movie viewing, you won't regret going with the largest screen size you can get away with, as this...

  • Summary: Bought from another vendor (they make computers) on one of their super deals for a little less than what it's going for here. I would probably go with an LG or Samsung for a decent value TV if I could choose again.
  • Pros: Large amount of real estate for the money. It generally has very good color reproduction, and is fairly bright. The one I ordered had no light bleeding or stuck pixels. Simple and classy design. Decent number of inputs.
  • Cons: The Pixel Plus 3 Engine seems to be a little weak. Digital (Not HD) TV tends to look like garbage... chunky and color washed. My guess would be there is minimal, if any, up-conversion taking place. Blu-Ray has great picture quality, but when some of the features are running, there can be some ugl...

Happy with this TV

  • Summary: I bought this TV a week before Thanksgiving 2008. The remote is basic and the menu is dull and boring compared to say Samsung. But those are trivial details. I am happy with this TV. I have hooked up my cable and PS3 to this and all I can say is the picture quality is good, the sound is great.

Terrible USB Support, customer service

Amazon Customer "Jay Zee", Amazon
13 February 2009
  • Summary: Don't put any stock in the specs. First, the TV's slideshow feature DOES NOT support .alb files, even though it clearly states so in every spec sheet I have ever read, and it says explicitly so in the manual.

  • Summary: now i didnt buy this on new egg but was going to till i found a x-mas special else where, but this is a great price and would recommend to any one looking to get a HD LCD TV
  • Pros: Great viewing angles, the setup function when you first turn on the tv makes the picture to what you want with just a few selections and not having to try and adjust each setting. The auto crop for black bars is nice to resize non HD channels so they fit and look nicer on the screen. It has a rea...
  • Cons: The auto crop is a little slow at times and will some times adjust for commerials and u may miss a little on the show, it also doesnt work on left/right bars just top/bottom so HD channels will look a little funnie when non HD show are played on them at times <but why watch non HD shows on HD cha...

Makes any regular DVD look HD

D-DUB "Davids_in_Carolina", Amazon

  • Summary: We bought this TV at sams club and we got a 300 dollar in store gift card. We bought the TV for 1200, do the math...good deal! Anyway, we were pleasantly surprised by how this tv makes our regular DVD's look HIGH DEF. For this, we're going to hold off on Blue-ray for awhile.

You get what you pay for.....

  • Summary: This TV has a lot of grainy reception. Don't fall in love with the price (Wal-Mart) I have a HP 37" LC3760N and I think the world of it. If you are looking for a starter LCD TV start there.

Good basic television

  • Summary: I've hooked a blu-ray DVD player and an upconverting DVD/VCR combo player to this telly and it's working out just great. It does have issues with action from the old VCR's - confusion in the upconversion - but overall, this is a nice product.

Too Good For TV?

rampageous_cuss, Amazon
10 November 2008
  • Summary: I'm still playing around with this thing so there may be updates to come. I'm not a technophile and bought this monster mostly because of the upcoming digital transition - my plan is to watch mostly off-air hdtv signals, dvds, and some old video. And this IS a monster, BTW.
