Consumer review (

Stay away from this TV


I bought this TV because I thought the picture was great for a $150 TV, and it had a flat screen. There was also a fair amount of inputs, including the component inputs for DVD players. So I thought I was getting a good deal on a TV for the bedroom. ...

Good picture, inexpensive

Terrible sound quality, and confused by stereo signals
