viewing angle awful

Scott Graham, Amazon
30 December 2013
  • Summary: This TV was purchased for our kitchen. We were limited to the small size due to the size of the cabinet it would be in. Might as well not have a TV at all with the picture of this TV. The stand does not tilt so straight on viewing is the only option and now I know why. The picture is awful if viewed from below or at an angle.

Nice little TV

RadioRick, Amazon
18 December 2013
  • Summary: The size of this TV is perfect to go next to my monitor as a second monitor and to watch the news while web surfing without a TV tuner card. Previous reviews state the sound is tinny which it is but the TV is small for crying out loud. It's really not that bad. It sounds great with a set of external speakers plugged into the mini audio out jack. It doesn't have the greatest picture compared to say a Samsung but the price was good.

Not much else available in this size

Frederick L. Katz, Amazon
14 December 2013
  • Summary: We found this TV to be pretty much what was noted in previous ratings. The picture is washed out unless you are looking directly at it, at eye level. The sound is like a children's toy--very tinny. For a small kitchen, with really no other options, this set will suffice.

Would not buy again

Joseph L. Powlette, Amazon

  • Summary: Terrible sound. Sounds like you are in a tin can. Picture can only be seen head on; at any angle beyond a few degrees it just washes out.

Fits the bill

Amazon Customer, Amazon
30 September 2013
  • Summary: Great for the kitchen while cooking. I can see football and golf with no problem at all. I did make a placemat with wooden shims to tilt the unit back a little for better viewing. The sound is a slight bit tinny but not enough to ruin the event I'm watching. Picture is first class.

A great little set, perfect in many cases -- despite its limitations

J. Holman, Amazon
14 August 2013
  • Summary: It's true what the other reviewers are saying: this set's viewing angle means that if you aren't able to watch it straight on, the picture starts looking washed out, getting worse as you move further to the side. Its sound is also nothing to brag about, though I wouldn't call it annoying or unacceptable. But despite all that, it's a good choice in many situations.

This is not a great screen.

PhilPRO, Amazon
13 July 2013
  • Summary: Frankly, mine was broken, but from what I could tell, this screen in general isn't the greatest. The viewing angle is brutally small.

You can not view this at an angle

Joe, Amazon
29 June 2013
  • Summary: I ordered this as it was the perfect size for the kitchen space it was to fit in. Worked well, nice picture. But - if you are not looking straight on at this, the picture is washed out. Had to send it back.

TV/Monitor

Jerry Milbauer, Amazon
29 June 2013
  • Summary: Good TV for the money. Easy to use with intuitive remote. Vertical viewing angles are a little sensitive. If you are going to use this as a computer monitor be aware that the base does not have any tilting adjustment.
