Summary: We bought this tv for our our daughter's bedroom, and worked great for about 8 months. Then one night she told me her tv wasn't working. I walked in to this terrible screeching sound and the screen was nothing but dark lines running horizontally. I figured it was the DVD, so I stopped the DVD and the tv never changed. So I turned the tv off and back on and all I got was a flashing green led power indicator. I tried unplugging, nothing changed.
Summary: Bought this tv 2 weeks before it died. Sylvania replaced the tv after 10 phone calls with a "reconditioned" unit. Broken. Now trying to get back my money. I even asked Sylvania if any of their tv's work. try another brand.
Summary: It sounded good from the one review so I ordered. The specs are good with many connections I need. However, the picture even at full brightness looked like there was a gray filter over it. I even looked for a sheet of film over the screen, but it was real. No of amount of adjustment of the picture would remove the shadows and bad colors. Everything else worked fine with input from satellite box and outside digital antenna.
Summary: I bought this TV in October 2008, and today (August 23, 2009) it died. It worked a total of TEN MONTHS! I went through the litany of all the things to do to get it to work but it was completely dead. I called the Syvania help line and they said all they would do is have me take or ship the TV to an "authorized" repair place which is 75 miles from where I live (my expense), pay for the labor (more expense) and they would happily pay for the parts.

Summary: The television is just "ok". Several stations come out "snowy" and other stations are ok. If you are looking for a high quality television with a clear picture you may want to consider something else.
