Excerpt: This is a nice sized television that gets the job done, if you want something simple that you are going to watch television every now and then on. Otherwise, you might want to choose a different television to watch movies and play games on. Overall the television is set at a great price year round and you can buy it with or without an pre-installed DVD player.
Excerpt: I purchased this Television for my son's bedroom. He has been usig it since September and he uses it everyday, mostly for gaming on his Microsoft Xbox 360. We purchased it because the quality of the graphics on games is so good, we wanted him to have a television to appreciate them with. This Sylvania television was a good price at under $200.00 and we purchased it at a mass retailer.
Excerpt: I thought I was getting a great deal! Little did I know. I was so excited to get my first flat screen tv, I could hardly wait. I took it home, hooked it up, and tyrnd it on. As the day progressed, the screen would go blank, followed up by the words video and then the picture came on again. After 2 days I was fustrated, and called th manufacturer. I was instructed to take it back ad get another. It was a hassle, but I did just that.
Excerpt: The look is sleek and fine lines. The picture quality is perfect. It is easy to set up and connect to other devices. The remote is easy to use but a little too bigh. The stand is sturdy and trustworthy. I the sound on the tv is like nothing else. You can use the sound options to change it to music or movies. There are features on this remote that I still haven't figured out though.
Excerpt: Usually this tv has a bad reception it tends to go black when i doesn't have signal. It's frustrating getting up to fix the antenna and sometimes the image wont show anymore. All the channels you want to see wont show as well. I believe it was better before when there was no digital tv because at least when there was no good reception you were still able to see your favorite tv shows. But now there is no option at all.
Excerpt: This TV is relatively inexpensive, but you get what you pay for. From even a short distance, the image quality is grainy, though the further back you get the better the image appears; that's not necessarily a bad thing, but it's not good either, as the image overall tends to stay somewhat grainy, and at times a bit distorted. One great function is the ability to switch the format of the screen (Normal, 16:9, Movie Expand, Zoom, and Wide).
Excerpt: I received this Sylvania television as a gift for Christmas in 2009 and just after the warranty expired (very conveniently) in January of 2011, the television stopped working. There was no explanation as to why the television stopped working as it had not been moved, and nothing unusual (i.e. power outages, etc.) had happened. I turned the television off one night, and it started to make a high pitched buzzing noise. I tried to turn it back on, and nothing would work.
