Summary: This TV is great, all the hookup options you could want for a bedroom and then a few. The sound is a little tinny but I use a computer 5.1 speaker system and it sounds great. I did have one issue with this set and it was not the fault of J & R or Viewsonic except neither was aware of the issue so I have informed both.
Pros: All the connections options I could ever need, Energy Efficient, Good Remote Control, Great Picture Quality, Outstanding picture clarity/resolution, Reduced Glare, Setup is as easy as it gets
Summary: I needed a large screen high resolution TV to fit in a tight space and this had the smallest height of any set with these features on the market. Not concerned with other exotic features, I needed something to connect with a variety of components making this the only choice available, thus the perfect rating for me. Dynamic contrast ratio is very high but is off by default and when turned on, causes the image to fluctuate from high contrast to indistinguishably poor.
Pros: All the connections options I could ever need, Best for its size, Energy Efficient, Great Picture Quality, Setup is as easy as it gets
Cons: DCR not as good as stated, Manual lacks information, Poor access to connection, Slow channel change times, Weak audio control
Summary: This is a good TV for the money. The speakers are not bad but they are not great, something to expect in this price range. Standard definition cable comes in just ok but HD looks fantastic, 10/10 for the class it's in. Only negatives really are the glare, cheap remote, and the set-up menus require squinting because the resolution is too high.
Pros: All the connections options I could ever need, Energy Efficient, Great Picture Quality
Summary: I was terribly disappointed with this TV. The picture quality was so bad...almost grainy and snowy. I was using an HD box, and nothing I could do would improve the picture.Using a blueray player, the quality was ok, but I have a cheap 19 inch flat screen/dvd combo that had a much better picture.Cost me [$] dollars to return the set, but why keep something no good. I was already thinking of ways to move to some other room, rather than keep myself.
Summary: The sound quality is a little bright even with adjustment but that is expected with such small speakers. When connected to a home theater system the sound is excellent. The picture is very sharp with vivid colors. I have owned Viewsonic products for years. No problems. Very reliable.
Pros: All the connections options I could ever need, Energy Efficient, Good Remote Control, Great Picture Quality, Outstanding picture clarity/resolution
Summary: Thanks Overstock for the fast delivery. I ordered this tv on Sunday 5-23-10and received it on Tuesday 5-25-10. I'll admit I was a bit skeptical when the representative was telling me about "Viewsonic" products because I've never heard of this company. The television filled up the space on my entertainment center, just like I wanted. The pictures on the screen are clean,crisp, clear and the colors are vibrant; like being at the movies.
