Sanyo HDTV DP42849 LCD TV 42 Inch

 

We bought our Sanyo HDTV DP42849 exactly one year ago. A flat screen TV was something my husband had wanted for a very long time. We certainly had better things we could spend our tax refund on however; he is a sweet and wonderful person.

I love the TV from the price, picture quality, and sound

The USB input should of been placed in the front

Good TV for the money

 

This was my first flat screen and I love it. The only thing I wish is I would've bought a bigger one. This is in my living room and I love it. It's so easy to move and keep clean. I'd recommend this to anyone.

Simple Setup, Easy to Use, Great Design
