Consumer review (

Nice TV, super reliable


This was the first TV I bought after moving out of my parent's house in 2005 and its still working like a champ now. No complaints. It was the cheapest 720p 40" TV I could find when I was looking. Really didn't think it would last all this time, esp...

No complaints. Not 1080p but obviously its not advertised as such

didn't last 6 mos.


nice picture

the power supply puked less than 6 mos. after I got it and Astar customer service has NOT been particularly speedy in getting the problem fixed. After 5 days I finally got an RMA, and 2 weeks later I'm still waiting

Great Buy


Excellent picture quality on the HDMI and VGA connections.

Cannot get my 8800GTS 640 to output the signal correctly when hooked to HDMI.

Great TV for price!


Great TV for the price.

Make sure you have a HD capable cable box because it can have a little static in the picture in 480i output.
