None

White spot 1/4" big in middle of screen. Can't get an RMA from the AStar. Nothing but run around. Will never buy another non name brand TV. Will never buy another TV on Internet

Simply great

 

This is a great first HDTV for anyone. I was very impressed on how good it is for the price. I mostly use it via VGA connection from my computer and it looks like the exact equivalent of a giant computer monitor. Simply stunning if you play any video...

Has many features that I was looking for such as the ATSC/NTSC tuners, 2 HDMI ports, detachable speakers, wall mount, and other various specs. The price is the biggest pro of all. Its between 150 and 200 dollars less than other HDTVs of the same size...

Brightness is a little low initially, but I spent some time adjusting the color, brightness, and contrast settings to make up for it. It looks quite fine now. The max resolution is sort of strange being 1366x768 and not just 1360x786. For TV output...

Awesome TV and Great Monitor

 

I suggest getting one of those mulitple input devices to hook up different games systems, because its kind of a pain switching between my Wii and PS2 with only 1 input.

I just got this TV and have had for about a weeknow. Im in the process of Building my first computer, and i found myself needing a monitor as well as a TV for my new room. When i saw this TV i thought i hit the Jackpot and i did. The Picture is great...

When i hooked it up to my current Laptop the picture wasnt that great, but my laptop isnt made for that big of a monitor hopfully it will look better with my new computer and video card. Also the coax cable connector on the back is just very poorly...

Not worth the money

 

Burned out after 3 weeks. I had to pay $100 for a local shop to repair.

Looks nice, large, inexpensive

Low quailty, screen fill feature for non HD channels is pathetic. It warps the image at the edges of the screen while trying to fill in the screen. Just a pathetic attempt at a lcd tv

Consumer review by:

Decent

 

It didn't come with a user manual, no biggie, found the pdf online. Also trying to get the rebate with no luck so far. Even without the rebate it's a great price for the product.

Great brightness, contrast, crisp, clear picture. Many inputs, it has decent weight to it, it's not super-light so you know there are some good parts to it, so it should last

Took a while to find the coax input, they put a sticker over it! A lot of 'black space' to the frame, but at this point I am just nitpicking
