Expert review by : Laura Blackwell (



With its glossy black bezel and silver accents, AOC's A42HD84 cuts a handsome figure. Its $1700 price tag (as of 6/6/06) adds more luster. However, this HDTV's image quality, though generally acceptable, didn't wow our test jury--and its basic controls...

Handsome design; easy to use

Unimpressive image quality Lacks HDMI input

Inputs are important in a plasma TV, and this set comes close to giving you what you're likely to want. It includes many of the standard inputs (composite, component, and S-Video) but forgoes the expected HDMI input. Almost all plasma TVs of this size...

AOC L42H861 Review – 42-inch LCD HDTV


Envision AOC L42H861 LCD TV. Priced just less than 1 grand at $999.99 MSRP, this stunner from AOC is all set to break every sales record. Set on a swivel stand, the Envision AOC L42H861 can also be mounted on the walls. The swivel stand also makes it...

AOC L42H961 TV


This 42" 1080p television produces fair picture quality in both high definition and standard definition at a budget conscious price. Testers felt the remote control, menus and settings were fairly easy to use but the sound level and sound clarity were...

The quality of the picture is phenomenal


If you are buying this tv I would definitely get the HDMI cable and a blue ray dvd player. The picture is amazing even when you play an old vhs or plain dvd.

Bang for Buck


I pulled the trigger on this TV when it was a great price, and I couldn't be happier!Was a little skeptical because I didn't really know the name AOC, but I am extremely happy with the purchase. The picture on this TV is ultra sharp and the colors are...

Amazing TV


I ordered this tv while I was deployed in Iraq. My wife got it an was telling me how amazing the picture was, and I didn't believe it because she doesn't know too much about electronics. When I came home I can honestly say I was amazed, especially for...

Nice Deal


Nice tv, remote is somewhat limitedcreates a lot of heat, hope it holds up. It really shines if you have a blue ray player to watch your movies on, only 1080 i have seen came through dvd. AWESOME

A terrific value


I was so impressed with this set I bought two of them.

Don't shy away from the rather unknown brand name. This is an outstanding television for the price. The image quality rivals and even surpasses the comparable Sxxyo and Sxxsung models

On board speakers produce a poor quality of sound but the system delivers awesome sound when hooked up to an audio system
