  • Summary: My old flat screen had no trouble picking up all my cable stations but I tried every solution possible and could only get 20 channels. So I called support and found out you need a converter box. I just bought this November 23rd!! Will NOT buy RCA again.

It took less than 2 hours to fail.

  • Summary: I set this up and started learning how to use it along with XBMC and in about 2 hours, the display got sort of overcast with a shadow in a rectangle about 2/3 of the way across and about 2/3 of the way vertically. The cursor would move over that area with a comet like tail and you could see through to realize what was behind. I tried to return the unit but they wanted me to pay freight and I disputed it.

whatever you do make sure that you don't get it from Secondipity

  • Summary: when I first received the package i thought there was something wrong with it since the box looked worn. and I was 100% correct when I took it out of the packaging and set it up it had black and white lines running diagonally along the screen. If I was you I would think twice before buying anything from this. make sure its a reliable source and make sure you can get in contact with the seller.

  • Summary: ORIGINAL REVIEW: We ordered this to go on the wall of the office to show output of monitoring systems. We were replacing an earlier model of this same TV, a 42" LCD. The old one still works great, but this one is definitely lighter and thinner. The fault was with the screen, it had a black anomaly not unlike the effect you'd see if putting a large magnet next to an old tube TV.

  • Summary: Got this as a christmas gift, went through all the trouble of picking this up at the store, gift wrapping it, removing the old tv, and setting this one up. turned it on and left half of the screen was very dim and blurry. i returned it for a full refund and will never buy RCA again. when i was in line to return there was a guy right behind me returning 4 of these same TVs. He said the picture quality was awful.

  • Summary: Delivered on time and intact site-to-store. Easy to unbox and set up. Has the connections I need plus some. Tuner seemed to work fine. When first turned on, tuner found most available analog & digital stations. However, panel showed dozens of fixed stripes in random places independent of which signal was selected, and with no-signal input chosen. In addition to stripes, there were hundreds of "stuck" pixels all over screen, especially near top, a bit left of center.
