OLEVIA 27" LCD Monitor 327V

 

when watching cable without hdmi the picture looked pretty bad. they had moving lines on the tv which i thought it was the tv. i thought i had defective td but when it was hooked up with HDMI, amazing!

Can't beat the price. $400 for a HDTV is just amazing. If your not a heavy user then this tv is a fine

none really

Outstanding TV and Value

 

This is an outstanding value! I would recommend this TV to anyone: from the first time HDTV buyer to a home theater enthusiast looking for a bargain bedroom or den set. It works OK as a monitor but the thing here is clearly to use it mostly as a TV. I...

Price, Picture Quality, Easy setup, HDMI input, Good Sound

Build Quality a bit cheap looking, Remote a bit clunky, inputs hard to reach on back of set

Bang for the buck!

 

There are a lot of options out there for TV's, but I would recommend this model to anyone in the market. Plus, New Egg's service and shipping is mindblowing. 4 days to ship from California over here to Okinawa, Japan! Amazing!

Excellent quality TV for the price. Speakers sound pretty good for the size. I was a little hesitant to buy this TV at first, but after reading the reviews I decided to go for it. I have my PS3 setup using the HDMI cable and my Xbox 360 using the HDTV...

The only con I suppose would be no tuner for cable. For the money I would hope it would be included

The blue power light and the remote are not nearly as bad as the other reviewers make them out to be.

Great Product and Great Price ; I bought it to use with my xbox360 and I couldn't be happier with it's native 720p resolution, it looks fantastic

None as of yet

Not bad at all

 

newegg Rocks!

Nice picture, easy access to connectors. The instructions are a bit slim but they'll do. No dead pixels. Super fast shipping

Blue power light is bright. Electrical tape takes care of it. The bulk-item policy is scary but if you inspect the box before you sign, you'll probably be ok

OLEVIA 27" LCD Monitor 327V

 

very good picture quality. Contrast ratio was right on the money. Very good sound, crisp and loud

The remote and no tuner. The cable tuner is not part of the model i bought, so that was to be expected. But the frequency for the remote is not in any standard universal remote. Therefore i need two remotes (one for cable one for tv) unless you get a...

If you plan on using this as a pc screen. Make sure you pick up the DVI-D Male to HDMI Male Cable this is the exact cord you will need.

This Screen is amazing I love the picture clarity. For the price its a win win for anyone wanting to buy this. I use this as my computer screen. Yeah thats right I game on this screen and surf the web ; 1280 by 768 pixels is what I have it set at but...

The plugs in the back are a little hard to get to. Its a little thicker then most screens but its not bad. The remote is not the coolest looking thing, but who cares its a remote

Nice TV

 

I installed my PS3 by using the HDMI cord connecting the PS3 and the TV. It is a necessity to use HDMI cable to utilize the full potential of this great TV.

It is equipped with a High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) port. Its a cheap ticket to High definition experience. But also with an amazing picture that will blow your socks off when you see it. The TV's Menu is also very simple to use, so you...

I feel theres is a need to mention that there is a very bright Blue LED light. If it where red, and did not affect your vision while your getting that mid night snack from the fridge. Then it wouldn't be as bad

BE CAREFUL

 

Keep the packaging material. The blue light is too bright

Nice TV

Bought the refurbished model. There was a 90 day warranty. The TV died, stopped working, and refused to cooperate or or about the 100th day ; Shouting bad words at it was of no avail. I phoned Olivia tech support and they walked me through a few tests,...

Wow! Incredible bargain!!

 

I was hesitant to order a "Recertified" LCD HDTV. But, wow, I was wrong! There are ZERO dead pixels and the picture is stunning for my 360 Games + HD-DVD, and my PS3 Games + Blu-Ray movies. The TV came to me quickly and it was shipped out fast. Newegg...

Great picture ; Excellent customization options ; Outstanding price

Only 1 Component In ; Only 1 HDMI in ; (But these are MINOR gripes!)
