Very short service life.


If adventuring is your type. Go for it. But if you're not then stay away from Akai.

I'm very lucky. Other who buy this TV, it lasted only a year or so. Mine is 2 years

I brought the TV from Radioshack around Christmas 2006, the price was $1,199.00. 3 months later the price was dropped to $899.That's breaking my heart dearly. Now it stop working. NO PICTURE and NO SOUND. The most importance thing NOWHERE to turn to

Great TV, but it started aliasing early and had to have a new MOBO


The MOBO went out after only six months and Akai promptly replaced it. Only problem, the tech who replaced the MOBO said Akai sent him an inferior board. That board caused new issues, i.e., minor aliasing and the display does not reflect the proper...

Great picture for the money when it is working

TV was not restored to its original quality after MOBO replacement

Consumer review by: kain (



I am really happy with the price and the picture, the sound cand be a bit annoying. Like I said above its a low end problem (bass). The best way I can describe it is it sounds like popcorn popping (muffeled) when people are talking. I am highly...

Great alternative to Samsung LCD TVs. Great Picture - Good Price

Poor owners manual. Fails to go in detail about options and controls. Poorly made remote control. Not backlit. The worst thing about this tv is that there is NO universal remote codes. Meaning, you can only use their remote, no other! Also, I think...
