After reading a few of the lower rated reviews on this TV, I have to say I am pleasantly surprised with my purchase. For an LED TV over 42 inches less than $800, this TV is a good deal. _ The video quality is great. Those that say the video quality is poor must be expecting an HD quality picture out of standard definition television. Standard TV looks fine on this TV and, as a matter of fact, will look the same on any higher end TV on the market (I have a 37" Vizio and it is exactly the same). Now, the HD quality is AWESOME. I hooked my Playstation 3 up to one of the HDMI ports and was blown away by the clarity of my Bluray movies and even my regular DVD's. The picture is so crisp it looks like you're looking through a window, not a TV screen. _ The only downside with the video is the lag I experienced with games on my Xbox 360 and Wii. Any shooter seems to be slightly sluggish when turning, aiming and locking on to targets and it came make for a frustrating experience at times. The Wii remote seemed to be slightly behind my hand movements, too. That being said, playing ModNation Racers and MLB 10: The Show on my PS3 yielded better results. _ The sound quality of the actual TV isn't anything to brag about; it does fine with regular TV but isn't impressive with movies. It does have an audio out port to hook up any stereo or home theater system with red/white stereo ports. _ As far as the features go on this TV, don't expect any fancy bells and whistles. It has the normal color, sharpness picture adjustments as well as a sound equalizer, sleep time and parental controls. The one feature I was very disappointed it did not have was a fixed or variable audio output option (meaning you can adjust the volume of your attached home theater system/stereo through your TV without having to alternate remotes). _ Overall, I am pleased with my purchase of this TV. I feel like this TV isn't a GREAT investment for someone that is willing to spend the extra money on a higher model TV, but for someone on a tighter budget you can't do much better than this.

when i hooked this up and popped in the avatar blu-ray disc i was in absolute shock and horror. seriously. everything looked like a "behind the scenes" footage. it looked so... real -- in a bad way. very bad, like documentary style. so here were these very real, down-to-earth people, and then very strange effects around them. it made even one of the best actors (sigourney weaver) seem like one of the worst. i was trying every adjustment to contrast/brightness/saturation/sharpness... nothing worked. i was majorly distraught, trying to figure out how to go about shipping this back and the whole process and ordeal. i even tried some old regular dvds. same thing. bad acting, cheap looking documentary camera. finally, in "advanced picture" options, i went in and turned EVERYTHING off. all of the little extra picture "enhancing" settings -- 3 menus deep! seriously, EVERYTHING off. and voila. an awesome, truly CINEMATIC picture. thank goodness. great tv... some of the worst default settings in the history of default settings. be prepared for this, or you will return it unnecessarily. you're welcome, wal-mart, i just saved you a ton in shipping costs if anyone reads this review.

I compared LCD and LED screen and LED produces an excellent viewing experience over LCD. This T.V. has 4 HDMI inputs that are enough for all my components. Its speakers are powerful and undistorted on high volume. Overall a great product.

great tv - but use its vga connection for gaming

tv has great picture, very vivid colors and good brightness. to get most out of it, i find it best to turn off most of the picture filters. as for gaming, it does not have a "game mode" like some other brands which turns off most picture processing and as such even with all available filters options off, there is quite a bit of input delay when playing games. Most affected are fps (cod mw2 and such) , however I find that using the vga in to connect my console dramatically reduces the delay to the point that i can say is almost non existent, So get a vga cable for your console and its a great gaming TV as well , vga in seems to bypass most processing filters in the Tv that cannot be turned off otherwise. avoid component or hdmi for gaming, use those connections for everything else. Again use a vga cable for your console! it makes an amazing difference, no lag and still a great vivid picture. As for watching tv the lag does effect some channels where the voices do not sync with the video, (only noticeable if you look for it!). This only occurs when running audio from the cable box directly to an av receiver, to avoid this run the audio to the tv first and use the tv's audio out, either rca or coaxial, to the av receiver. or if you use the built in speakers everything will be in sync. some receivers have an audio delay feature which can also help get everything perfectly in sync. So, other than the manageable video lag issues, (of which almost all new fancy lcd tv's suffer) the tv is great bargain for an 42 inch LED tv with good connectivity options and great picture, Frame is glossy and does reflect a bit but screen is matte and has little reflection making it great to watch during the day in a bright sunny room where most glass coated screens are almost unwatchable, built in speakers are not great, but still usable, other minor issue was on my set there was noticeable light bleed in one corner, (where the screen is not perfectly flush with the frame letting the back lighting through) this is easily corrected, just search online for a how to, again this was just my tv and probably occurred during shipping. OK that's all there is to it enjoy watching and gaming on your new TV!

Customer review by DwFritz

I've had this tv for about a month and a half now and I absolutely love it. I am a gamer and I have the PS3 and Xbox360 both hooked up to it and I see no lag what so ever. Maybe the other reviewers had extremely cheap or bad HDMI cables, I dunno. I had a problem playing some first person shooters not because of lag but because of the difference between my 27" Standard Def tv and this 42" HD, it was so intimidating at first. I could actually see everything and I could read all the text on the screen. I also have HD cable and it looks wonderful, standard def cable looks decent but these new tv's are designed for HD! Right? Also another reviewer said the tv takes 10 mins to turn on that has to be an exaggeration. The tv takes about 10-15 seconds to turn on, thats about as long as I can stand to watch Tyra! With the sound issue I've been reading also, there is a setting to turn on the built in surround sound setting, when you do that the sound quality is wonderful. Again some people still can't set the time on their 1989 VCR's, I have a few in my family. The default sound is bad, but go into audio settings and make the switch, its like night and day. My roomate has a 32" RCA he bought on black friday from Walmart and his picture quality is way lower than mine, he has his brightness setting on the "Retail" setting which is for being displayed in bright department stores and its still not as bright and vibrant as this TV. Avatar blu-ray looks incredible on this screen, especially the night scene with all the flourescent colors, people say the default settings make it look "too real" I can see that, but again you tweak the settings and it doesn't look bad at all, again HD looks more real than SD anyway. One person said, it makes the actors look bad, but I think its just some actors are bad, llike Sigourney Weaver from Avatar for instance. It does let you see how the actors act sometimes. Which is funny cause it makes them look like normal people, not the mega highly praised superstars. This is a great gaming TV, a great Blu-ray TV, and a great LED-LCD TV all around. Unless you want internet capabilites or apps on your TV you will be pleased with this. Heck I got internet on my computer and apps on my phone, do I really need them on my TV also? If your worried about other reviewers or the supposed bad reputation of Proscan then get the 3 year extended warranty from Walmart, its only $88 or so, then if you don't like it you can return it to any store and get your money back because they don't sell these in stores so all they can offer is a refund, then you can take that money and buy a different tv from the store shelf. Thats what makes Walmart great, they want you to be happy with the product. I would buy that 3 year warranty no matter what brand I get, its a great investment.

  • A. with 120hz tv's they typically process process an image to provide smoother motion this can cause some lag. This feature can be turned off though for gaming and if you dont like the affect it puts on movies.

  • A. I have both Xbox360 and PS3, I have no lag whatsoever! I also read some reviewers say that it does, but I have seen none! I have Call of Duty 4, World at War, and Modern Warfare 2. I have experienced no lag playing any of these games, I haven't play COD4 online on it since I have the other two games, Zombie Mode on WaW is great. Red Dead Redemption also plays smoothly online even when surrounded by a bunch of other online players. PS3 Uncharted 2 online is great no lag either. It might be due to HDMI cables but I have two cheap cables hooked up on mine and I still have no lag at all. Great TV.
