Astar 19" LCD TV Review


The Astar 19" LCD TV, Model: LTV-19BG has all of the features that big-screen televisions have, but just in a shrunken frame. If you're looking for a great secondary television, then I highly recommend this TV.

Budget TV w/subpar sound



Limited vertical viewing angles before screen appears dark (like a laptop screen).

Do not Buy


Do not purchase this monitor or any Astar product unless you are willing to risk the chance of a AS IS condition. I do not blame Newegg for this product, but I am recommending the removal of their ENTIRE product line do to lack of support.

Cheap, Multiple inputs, and did I say cheap

A completly worthless peice of junk. I purchase over $10k worth of product from newegg alone, and this is the worst product I have ever bought. Responce time is false, the image is soft and blury at best, and one of the two unit I purchased died 34...

ASTAR - Okay


Overall a good buy. There is much room for improvement.

Cheap, large screen, decent picture quality, accepts numerous inputs

Sound quality is weak, the picture had to be tweaked quite a lot to find an optimal setting, sound sometimes does not tune with the channel

Forget about the rebate


If you consider the price without the rebate (which they don't send), it's just an average deal. Nothing special that you couldn't get at Best Buy.

Cheap (if rebate included)

It's been 3 months for me and no rebate. Company continues to blow me off

Great price, mediocre TV, BAD Customer Service


Purchased 30 inch LCD from Sams Club back in May, great price, looked great for first 15 minutes of viewing, then suddenly it flashes and the picture turns to black and white.

what you pay is what you get.... :-(

Really bad customer service, do not return e-mails or phone calls. I think their e-mail gets directed to ther spam mailbox, because no one ever reads or responds from it.

STAY AWAY from Mac Mall & This Astar LTV-19BS TV


Mac Mall has not answer any of my emails concerning this so called new TV they sent me.

Mac Mall is great at not answering emails or their customer service lines. They excel at doing nothing!

Buy new and receive junk. MacMall customer service is worthless. The manufacturer (Aster) wanted me to replace parts myself. Astar will only replace a defective TV if you pay them an extra fee.
