Sylvania LD195SSX Review – 19-inch LCD HDTV

 

Offering a bonus with the HDTV, Sylvania attaches a built-in DVD player with the Sylvania LD195SSX. The DVD player will allow you to see movies with crisp images and clear voices. It does away with the need to buy a separate DVD player. You get the...

A review shows that the remote is an Infrared one which means that you can control all devices connected to the HDTV, including through HDMI. Other interesting features include a color temperature control and a 3D comb filter. This will make the image...

Sylvania LC195SLX Review – 19-inch LCD HDTV

 

This innovative product from Sylvania promises to bring pure entertainment home. The 1366 x 768p WXGA resolution plays a huge role in the good quality of the HDTV. Although it misses out on the DVD quality of the 1080p resolution, the 720p resolution...

The audio quality speaks highly of the Sylvania LC195SLX. There is a built-in 20W stereo speaker system which will bring across the dialogues and music quite clearly. Although there is no surround sound feature, the audio is good enough to be heard...

Sylvania LC225SL9 Review – 22-inch LCD HDTV

 

This HDTV from Sylvania promises low power usage with a long life period. With most of the brands in HDTV giving importance to less power consumption, it pays to highlight this aspect today. Also longevity will give you more value for money. There will...

The Sylvania LC225SL9 has a great audio too. It adapts to Dolby Digital and also has a surround sound capability. This gives a nice effect when you are in the room. You can also hear the dialogues and lyrics clearly even if you are away from the TV....

Not bad while it lasted, but that was absurdly short.

 

Good features but questionable dependability and poor customer support make this product an iffy choice.

Nice features, excellent picture and very good sound quality made this a good fit for our kitchen counter. Viewing angles were never a problem, TV and DVD play were excellent, and sound could be heard well despite large room and background noise

Unfortunately, the TV/DVD only worked for about 8 months. Customer service was woeful. Though under warranty, repair was ruled out in favor of replacement which was supposed to be prompt but took weeks

Great Low Cost LCD

 

I have been watching Over the air TV with a converter box for about two years. I live about 50 miles from the TV stations. I have good results with the converter box. I have hook-up an older HD TV to my antenna with poor results. I also have two tuners...

Unlike the previous review, I have great results with this LCD. Excellent picture quality, good tuner and decent sound

None so far, except when I tried to screw the VESA connection, I was unable to get one of the VESA screw to go in, but not a major issue

Good picture & sound but very poor tuner

 

I picked up one of these TV's for our camper. Brought it home and set-it up and immediately had problems with it keeping a lock on one of our strongest local stations while sitting in the driveway. This turned out to be true with all stations. ...

Very good picture ; Very good sound ; Not too heavy

Off-air tuner is basically worthless

No clock, No upcoming program guide

 

I will be returning this to the store.

Nice picture

No clock, no upcoming program guide

Picture is great but your current remote won't work it.

 

Funai, who makes Sylvania, Magnavox, Emerson, Symphonic and Phillips TVs has not, or will not, release the IR remote codes for its Sylvania products. Therefore, if your TV uses Satellite or cable signals you will need to use separate remotes for each...

The picture quality (without HD) is extremely good and the price was great ($249 at BJ's Warehouse.)

But - you get what you pay for. The remote you have been using with Direct TV or cable box will not operate the TV

Consumer review by:

Sylvania 19" TV/DVD combo is concise clarity, and compact

 

I purchased this TV/DVD combo, the Sylvania 19" LD195SSX to hopefully get away from the dreaded interrupted signal converter box.  I love the picture, but cannot get but a few channels and I have to move the antenna and sometimes be still to watch it. ...

Smart Shoppers Take Note!

 

I got the LC195SLX, 19" LCD on sale for $ , ($ after tax) in Feb 2010. Its a great buy for under $ . I purchased it strictly as a gaming TV for my Xbox 360 and I'm ecstatic about it. Watching HDTV shows thru Netflix (like Office and 30 Rock) on the...
