What a deal!!


Great picture, dark blacks, packaged pefectly, no dead pixals. Buy this TV if you are on a budget or if you need one for an extra bedroom or gameroom - you will NOT be dissapointed

Just like everyone else...sound is not the best and remote basic and a little slow. Minor issues in my mind if this is not your main TV

Best bang for the buck


While initally skeptical about the cheap price and 720p, I am very happy with it for five benjamins. Worth every penny. As mentioned about I use it with Netflix on both the xbox (hdmi) or my Athlon xp 3000+ MSI board MS-6702, msi agp nvidia 5200 video...

Wow, the color is great for a cheapo 1080i capable HDTV. It has two hdmi inputs, switching between inputs is good and is fairly responsive. I can easily set my xbox elite 360 at its highest resolution with the hdmi cable and the graphics are...

The speakers aren't anything to write home about, the remote control is average. It collects dust and doesn't clean itself, it take a bit long to start and shutoff. It doesn't have more the 2 HDMI ports

Good tv for the money


As stated for the price this is a good deal and a tv I would recommend.

Ok tv for the money , picture is fair . Have not tried the HD yet , but for $499 I am happy with this tv. If you are not looking for a top of the line tv but a good one for the money I would recommend this tv

The audio is poor , my only real complaint

Great deal and tv!


Brand really doesn't matter once you have the big TV lighting up the room!! The sound was good to me which of course can be upgraded with other speakers. The remote does what it needs to to get you started. No dead pixels, great condition, great TV for...

The remote is kind of basic although it does its job, seems very simple for the tv, other than that, None I can muster up

Sleeper TV


Great TV, if you get a good price on it, do not wait. This looks better than brick and mortar offerings, in both picture and cabinet design.

Great picture, arrived w/o dead pixels ; People said the remote was cheap, but mine feels sturdy. Yes it isnt the pretties, but it works ; I got mine on sale so price was defintely a pro ; Better black level than my friends 42" LCD ; It handles regular...

Sound is really tinny at times ; Honestly, I didnt expect much from the speakers from a bargain LCD. Most TVs unless you get high end have basic speakers

Incredible TV for the price!!


Makes blu-ray look amazing and sounds great with bose surround sound setup.

Great resolution! Said only 720p on the site, but when we got the box it said 1080p! Plenty of HDMI inputs. Average speakers built in, but does the job

None as of yet

Digital Lifestyles 42" 720p LCD HDTV - FA2B42323


Thanks for the fast replace newegg!

It was advertised to be a much lower resolution than it actually is. 1920x1080 is the max I used with my laptop on HDMI. Looked amazing and high clarity

Gave it one less egg (which breaks my heart) because the first one that shipped to me had a button stuck and the volume kept going down. But Newegg replaced it with haste
