    Better Than Expected

    Customer review by LRPhotographer

    4.0 stars by LRPhotographer

    For what I paid for this, I didn't expect it to be quite as good as it actually is. Yes, there're better 40" 1080p LCD TV's out there, but when they cost more than twice as much for only a slightly better picture and sound, it's hard to justify opting for those over this one. The picture is still plenty clear, bright, and contrasty, without being so much so that highlights are blown out and shadows are blocked up, with very little in between. You just have to be patient in manually changing the image settings. I found that a brightness of 75, contrast of 50, and a color saturation of 25 with the tint left dead-center produces the best results, no matter the material being viewed. As for the sound, folks have complained that it's prone to getting really loud, then really quiet, without warning and seemingly without reason. This is caused by the auto volume leveling software in the TV. It's really quite terribly implemented. Turn off AVL/AVS, and this problem should go away. One of the really cool things about this TV, besides the huge array of input options, is that it has a 3.5mm headphone jack on the back of the TV. This will allow you to use computer speakers for external audio, if you'd like to go that route and save some money on what you'd otherwise pay for a sound bar, bookshelf system or full-blown HT system. You can get computer speakers that sound as good as if not better than a $250 sound bar for around $40. This is about the best bang-for-buck TV I've found anywhere, and even being the A/V aficionado I am, I have absolutely no problems recommending it. Again, for more than twice the price, you'll get only marginally better quality, but since the whole point of shopping at Walmart is to save money, why not go ahead and save a ton of it by getting this TV? You'll be extremely hard-pressed to find a better deal even here.

    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.

    • Hi Josh, I am only guessing what you mean by "optical audio" is a series of about 5, or six RCA Jack connections that can be connected to a surround system? If that is what you are describing, the answer is yes. My cable company provided me with what looks like a very expensive set of cables that perfectly correspond with those connections. I am using my older stereo tv to provide the sound until I can afford the new sound bar, or stereo system.
