Fantastic EDTV

 

I have been using this LCD TV for a half of a year now and works better than expected. I had a smaller CRT before and I don't receive HD programming so EDTV was the best route for me. Being an avid gamer, I am able to play games again and they look...

Great display with a multitude of options, goes perfectly along with any entertainment center, superb at displaying DVDs and any gaming console, handles 480p better than any other LCD TV I have seen, large number of inputs for its EDTV capabilities

Has a little bit of trouble with handling 480i content, remote has weird color scheme by being gray on top and glossy white on botton (not matching television)

Very bright. Love 'em. Glad i went with 2950 lumens. If you want brilliant white light, these are the ones.

Satisfactory LCDTV at a reasonable price, great for use in dormitory

 

(Edited April 17th by Tiberium) I bought this for $399 at a brick and mortar store back in September 06.

Heavy stand that can be used as wall-mount, fairly good picture, fairly bright, good audio output, space saving

remote control navgiation is counter-intuitive ; no HDTV support
