Editor's Choice

Expert review by: John R. Delaney (



RCA's LEDC45RQ series is a very affordable HDTV line offering full 1080p resolution and energy-efficient LED backlighting. Picture quality is above average for sets in the under-$500 price range, so it's our Editors' Choice for budget HDTVs.

Affordable. Good viewing angles. Convenient port location.

Only two HDMI ports. Some motion artifacts. Reds are slightly undersaturated.

Conclusion With the RCA LED42C45RQ you get a very affordable 42-inch HDTV that uses energy-efficient LED backlighting and delivers a bright, well-balanced picture. In order to keep the price under $500 RCA had to skimp on some features, which explains...

Consumer review by: OrchidGirl (

great price on a 42" TV


The TV was shipped beautifully, really well packed so as not to damage the product, the TV itself has a great picture and the only bad remark is the stand that you need to attach is quite tricky. You will need a screwdriver with a magnetic head or else...
