  • A. If you want a brighter more crisp picture then you want the 4000:1. It will also not pixelate with this ratio so it is definitely better.

  • A. There is no uniform standard for measuring contrast ratio. This needs to be said before anything else. Generally you can only compare the CR rating with other models by the same brand and usually for the same model year also. None of them are accurate regardless of what they state but because there is no set statndard they can get away with however they measure it. So mfg list only dynamic CR, some only CR and some state both. Some rate there CR so high it is absolutely ridiculous. For example Samsung has some models rated at 25,000:1 for an LCD display which would be impossible unless it uses LED for the back lighting (2-4 times the cost for this backlighting currently). Almost all models use florescent back lighting which will have some bleeding through of the light on totally black parts of the screen. Most plasmas have much better black levels but also can develop burn-in, which LCDs do not. Having said that, Contrast Ratio is a measurement of this difference between the blackest black and the whitest white that the display can display. Dynamic CR is when the back lighting is adjusted dynamically for darker scenes to give you better black levels. A processor inside the display tries to adjust the levels depending on the scene currently on the display. If done properly it CAN help to give the appearance of higher contrast ratios, but done poorly, it can crush black (blacken shadows so you cannot see what is in the shadows good). Hope this helps!

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

The TV overall is a great buy for the price. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is due to when purchasing online there was some confusion around whether the TV had 4 HDMI inputs like listed in Walmart product description versus what was listed on RCAs website. The one shipped to me only had 2 inputs which for some may not be enough if you are running more than a cable/satellite box, Receiver, or gaming system. Any more than that and you may need a HDMI switcher or an optical audio cable. If you look at the downloadable manuals on the RCA site for this TV there appears to be actually two versions of this TV. There is one for 2012 (has 4 HDMI inputs and a few other items) and the 2012.2H (has only the 2 HDMI inputs ). UM 50LB45RQ (2012) http://intra.oncorpus.com/UM%2050LB45RQ%20(2012).pdf UM 50LB45RQ_2H http://intra.oncorpus.com/UM%2050LB45RQ_2H.pdf Overall its a good product, just make sure you get the version you are expecting before purchasing if possible.

We were looking at 40" and 46" TV's, but this one was only a little more so we went for it. It was totally worth the extra bit of money - I'm glad we went big. The picture is awesome (gets a little "pixely" with motion, but that's what you get with 60hz refresh rate). The sound was tolerable, but we just plugged some $40 computer speakers (as opposed to an expensive sound bar) into the headphone jack and now it sounds great. The remote is very nice and easy to use. Set up was easy - the picture and sound were right on right away. We're very pleased with the purchase and would do it all over again.

we've had this TV for about one month. The HD program picture quality is outstanding. It was easy to set up, and came as promised in the product description. The sound was a little better than I had expected, after reading the reviews. It is obviously not as rich as a surround system can provide, but for everyday viewing very adequate. excellent quality for the price.

I did a lot of research before buying this TV. I was concerned that I might have made a mistake opting for a unit with only a 60hz refresh rate, but as it turns out, it's a non-issue. The resolution on this TV is crisp, clear and the picture is bright. I couldn't be more satisfied with the images this unit produces. When you can actually see the blemishes and pores in faces, that's pretty amazing. I don't see any reason to spend more money on a TV. If the picture can be improved, I doubt anybody could actually perceive it. In short, I love this TV and would recommend it to anybody. Site to store pick up was a breeze too.

The only thing this unit didn't have was a 120hz refresh rate. This television was the absolute best for the money and the picture is excellent. I plan to add surround sound so the marginal quality of the on board speakers are not a big deal. Research all the typical outlets, you'll be back to buy this one. It really is the best deal out there.

I think this TV is a good deal for the money. Picture quality is good, but sound quality is very poor! I guess they want to sell you a surround sound system, luckily we had a tuner with speakers already to hook to it, otherwise I wouldnt have kept the TV.

For some reason the I have to keep resetting the HDMI connections by unplugging the unit...when I turn the television on sometimes I get now audio from cable box or computer (both connected via HDMI)...the manual says to unplug the television to reset it and this is a real pain.
