    great value - good choice for external audio

    Customer review by whydoihavetoenteraname

    5.0 stars by whydoihavetoenteraname

    Great picture. Default audio isn't the best, but it can be adjusted so that it's ok. If it lasts, it's an absolute homerun (I've never had a piece of no-name electronics fail, but I have had an expensive Sony TV fail the day after the warranty expired). I picked this TV because of the connections - particularly the audio. You can't tell from the useless Walmart web specs, but it has every meaningful kind of video input, and both digital and analog audio outputs. Digital audio outputs are missing from lots of the low-end TVs, and analog audio out is a nice touch that's hard to find anywhere. There's also computer sound/video inputs and a usable USB port. If you're willing to buy things sight-unseen, and aren't scared off by the lack of a major brand name, this TV is worthy of consideration.

    • Get the extended warranty. Wish I had. The factory one (1 year) requires you to pay for shipping to them, and just imagine the cost to do that. Mine died after 13 months and isn't worth fixing.

    • I bought one. It was pretty good while it lasted. It went bad after about 34 months. I did not purchase the extended warranty. I do regret that a little.

    • It has a single coax input port for TV antenna or a cable TV cable. I've used it only with my TV antenna, where I think the TV's tuner's sensitively is just a bit weaker than my other three TV.s. TV's spec's say "NTSC / ATSC / QAM (Digital Cable Ready)" tuner.

    • Yes, you can use the standard cable (without cable box) signal feeding into the TV/ATTN input source. If you are using cable/satellite tv set-top boxes, you can feed their respective video signal into any of the 3 HDMI input or the more traditional (RGB) Video connection or the Component cable (YPbPr) connection
