Excellent bedroom tv

Daniel B., Newegg
14 January 2008
  • Summary: Get a good system and save yourself a lot of greenbacks, buy this LCD from Newegg, you'll thank yoirself
  • Pros: Price is the big con for beauty. But it was a easy set-up and operation process to learn. The picture is better than my 36 Sony HDTV LCD, with a very clear and LOUD audio output. The reomte is small and easy to use and handle with one hand. Really didn't need to read the manual for set up except ...
  • Cons: None as of yet.

lots of features and options, but QA not so great!

Ryan E., Newegg

  • Summary: i had experience with two different sets, and both had stuck pixels. now i know there are a lot of pixels, and the chance of getting a bad one are high, in fact, it's even written into the manufacturer's warranty, but on two consecutive sets is a sign of bad QA.
  • Pros: QAM/ATSC/NTSC tuners. HDMI/component/composite/svid/vga inputs. 1080i/720p support. very bright display. cable management in back. buttons on the side. menus are easy to use. good size, not too heavy. best bang for the buck.
  • Cons: sound is average at best. stand/remote feel flimsy. HD is crisp, but can overrun buffer at times. SD is also average at best. wish there were separate cable/ant connections.

Great gaming monitor

Andrew W., Newegg
10 January 2008
  • Summary: I mainly got this for my son's PS3 cause I'm not ready to move my 36" crt tv up to a 42" lcd hd tv. That it doubles as a pc monitor is a plus but the native resolution is a bit lacking.
  • Pros: The price is right,(3 franklins minus 1 cents) of course when I recieve the rebate. hooked up for home PC, but mainly for PS3. Just great for PS3. Just ok for PC. Using newish rabbit ears for HD airwaves, noy so good.
  • Cons: Have 1 and a half dead pixel. How can that be? One is bigger than the other. Tried the Q tip trick but no results. Probably cause I used a generic Q tip.

AVOID

Anonymous, Newegg
9 January 2008
  • Summary: Thought I was getting a good deal - price was real cheap - unfortunately I overestimated the quality of the unit. I am disappointed. My advice - Spend a little more money & go with a better Brand
  • Pros: 720P signal over HDMI is acceptable. I am not a fan of up-converting Standard Definition DVD's to 720P - but that is another issue - the Display is not at fault.
  • Cons: A Cluster of 3-4 Stuck Green Pixels right in the Center of the Screen = Unacceptable! Also the Quality from SVHS Input is HORRIBLE. Don't let all of the Input options fool you - if you want a good Picture on this Display HDMI is the only real option you have.

Awesome

Garrett J., Newegg
9 January 2008
  • Summary: This brings Halo 3 to life. The campaign looks outstanding. This T.V. is a great deal at the price it's being sold at. I can't even believe the quality i got with a mere $300(after $50 mail in rebate) HDTV.
  • Pros: -Looks incredible with my xbox 360 using the composite cables, I bet HDMI looks even better! -cool feature that you can change the type of sound such as "movie" or "music" -simple, useful menu -i can't say anything about watching TV because I'm solely using it for my xbox 360. -1080i compatible -...
  • Cons: 1 DEAD PIXEL! actually that's really good to have only one dead pixel so this isn't really a con. i have found nothing to dislike about this T.V. yet honestly.

  • Summary: If you can match the price I paid for it, then buy it. You will not have made a mistake.
  • Pros: HD quality using Cable connection is excellent. Setup is minimal. I haven't read the manual yet, but it looks very extensive. The good news is that you don't need the manual. Analog is as good as can be expected. As a computer monitor, it is outstanding. You set the parameters as per the recommen...
  • Cons: None. The only caveat is that I have only owned it for a little over a week. It it stays the same for some time, I will claim it as one of the excellent deals I ever made electronically.

Very Nice Tv/Monitor - Sadly mine was faulty

Anonymous, Newegg
2 January 2008
  • Summary: Read the LCD replacement rules VERY CAREFULLY. Newegg.com will only RMA monitors with 8 or more dead pixels. Even if your problems are not pixel related. Any NON Pixel related faults, and you have to deal with the manufacturer directly.
  • Pros: Nice looking, very clear for HD TV and computer, simple wall mountable using 100mm x 100mm mounting points. Lots of inputs including Audio in for VGA. No dead pixels.
  • Cons: All audio stopped working after approx 20 minutes of use.

  • Pros: Fair price. A lot of inputs. Buildin HDTV tuner to pick up on air digital signal with an old TV attena. Coxial Digital Audio out. Can be used as a monitor. Speakers are good.
  • Cons: Contrast ratio is only 700:1. When I connect PS2 with composite video, it's worse than old CRT TV.
