We bought this TV because we had EXACTLY $600 to spend and this TV plus the warranty plus tax was within our budget. The picture is awesome and our cable company hasn't even provisioned our cable box for the HD channels yet. I can read the fine print on commercials! :p Audio seems fine as is, but that won't stop me from hooking up the home theater system to supplement :) The TV did come out of the box with a bad HDMI1 port. We boxed it back up and swapped it out for another one that works perfectly. Have already tried hooking up my laptop and watching movies that way, works perfect. The description doesn't tell what kind of connections it has, so: 1 3.5 mm Headphone Jack 1 Digital Audio Jack 1 Coax (cable or antenna) 1 Set RCA A/V 1 Set RGB Component 1 VGA 1 PC Audio In 2 HDMI 1 USB Service Port I'm very happy, this is a very good value for the money.

Perfect Cheap Bedroom HDTV

Got this for our bedroom with cost as the primary consideration and very happy with the purchase, particularly at $400 closeout with 90 day return. HD picture is quite good (but obviously not Sony Bravia class) and sound from the built in speakers is acceptable, perhaps just a bit on the tinny side but not bad at all. Plenty of hookups including one for the output from a VGA video card so you can use it as a computer monitor. If you're looking for a cheap second HDTV, this is recommended.

I bought this TV not knowing what to expect out of it since there was no demo setup at the store. I must say I am quite pleased with the quality of the picture. While it is not as high end as the one provided by Sony, LG, or Samsung, this LCD TV is one several steps above the lower end LCD TVs. The standard image settings are pretty heavy in the saturation level causing faces to appear overly red, but it is not a big deal as a little tweaking of this particular setting fixed the problem. The sound is decent but users would want to turn on the Surround mode. Obviously, if you are looking for high end surround sound emulation you will not find it in this TV. All in all the sound is decent for most types of TV watching. Overall, I think this is a decent TV and Walmart stores should sample it so customers will be aware of the mid-quality between the high end TVs (Sony, Samsung, and LG) and the low end TVs (Sanyo).

We have always loved our Samsung TV's but got such a good deal on this Element that we thought we'd try it. It was waiting for us at Walmart when we arrived in Arizona from Michigan. The picture is great, sound is great - and the only problem we thought we'd have after reading other reviews (that it might not be programmable in our cable remote) turned out to be a non-issue. The cable guy programmed it right in. We liked it so much, we just bought a smaller Element for the bedroom.

Just like another reviewer on here (WisconsinBeerlover) I took this TV back to the store and got the 42" Vizio. I only had the Element 40" for 4 days. The TV liked to turn itself on in the middle of the night. The associate said that is a known issue with some of these Element TVs! I didn't like that one bit. I also didn't like how the speakers point down (unlike the Vizio) and everything about the TV was just plain "cheap" (unlike the Vizio). Even the owners manual was short and vague compared to any other piece of electronic equipment I've ever had. It also really put out a lot of heat. I realize electonics create heat, but this thing was really getting hot. So it was probably using a lot of electricity. This is a total budget TV for someone who has never had an HDTV before. It's amazing how just an extra $60 for the Vizio can make such a HUGE difference in quality. The Vizio has 2 more inches, better picture, more features, it's Energy Star certified, has a detailed owners manual, better sound, and a sturdier base. Get the Vizio. You'll be glad you did.
