Great!

 

Hope you have a laptop if you need to connect the USB cable to the tv. Unless this tv is your monitor for your CPU, then you're going to need a Laptop.

Great TV! 720/1080i max (what they dont tell you) and lots of hookups for multiple ANYTHING. Even hookups for an existing computer speaker system if you have one

The oblong base with built in speakers makes it hard to place into an entertainment center. Also there is just one HDMI port. If you want to connect multiple HD devices, invest in a switch. Updating the firmware through Olevia's site is a hassle too....

Better than its overpriced counterparts

 

little blue light makes for an annoying night light in the bedroom, nothing a little smiley sticker won't fix.

Great picture quality (Our version came as a 1080i) for the same price? HDMI makes for great Xbox 360 gaming

minor ghosting from light to dark images. hooks ups are awkwardly placed if the set is against a wall. only one set of RCAs

Great Picture, Reliable

 

Great picture quality for both SD & HD, great sound. Zero problems after 2 years of ownership

Somewhat clumsy adjustment interface

Great buy for refurbished!!

 

This set has a great picture in HD. I have my ps3 hooked up for blu-ray and the movies look outstanding on this set. I also watch over the air HD broadcast with the built in HD tuner and the picture looks excellent

It changes channels very slow. The black levels could be better

Recertified: OLEVIA 37" 720p LCD HDTV 437V

 

for $xxx shipped you cant beat it. I definitely believe its luck of the draw, in which case I got lucky. I wouldnt use this as a centerpiece for a home theatre unless money is the issue. I would recommend this for anyone on a budget(college kids like...

CHEAP! I took a gamble buying a refurbished TV and it paid off well. I use this set in my bedroom for watching standard def TV and running hdmi through a hd3850 in my computer to watch movies and play games. This is my first lcd tv so i cant compare it...

After about a week of use the tvs speakers make a LOUD shrill noise like a fire alarm going off, randomly. I turned off the tv, turned it back on and it hasnt happened since. Another one time only occurence was the screen turned pink on the hdmi...

Great Value

 

Great value for low price. Compared the picture quality to other well known brand names in stores and prefer the quality of the Olevia screen ; Set up was quick and easy and customer service is knowledgable and finds solutions instantly

Menu screen is a bit odd to get used to. But it has many great options for picture enhancement and sound ; Bough this refurbished and the only "not new" part was the base of the tv, which I think must be hy it was returned at one point. Blemishes were...

VERY GOOD LCD

 

This is my second Olevia set, the first one was the 542i LCD for the living room, I love this company they make really good tv's for a reasonable price. I did have a hard time removing the base from this tv, only 8 screws but it took over 1 hour to get...

I brought this LCD for our bedroom. It looks great and the sound is very good. I'm not using it for loud music stations just for late night tv watching and movies so the speakers are perfect. Looks great on the wall mount. I bought the recertified...

NONE so far

Recertified? Looks new to me.

 

Even though being "recertified" this TV looked brand new when I took it out of the box. No scratches or dings. No problems whatsoever. Playing Xbox 360 games and HD-DVDs on this TV is amazing. Such great picture quality. A great price for a great TV....

Price. Picture quality is great. HD-DVDs looks really clear, crisp, and colorful

Black levels could be better. The menu and speakers are ok

First HD TV

 

I was worried abouts shipping but it came in perfect condition

great deal

no F-type input

Agree with Roll of the Dice

 

Agree with others the customer service seems uninterested in helping you. The guy on the phone was mumbling his email address repeatedly like he didn't really want me to get it and stop bothering him. Will update when I get a new/fixed replacement.

TV looks pretty sleek and nice

Interior piece of screen was destroyed on arrival with UPS shipping. Horrifying. Can't say for sure it was the shipping as the box seemed pretty good. Newegg isn't setting up signature requirement so don't be surprised to find the TV left in your...
