This TV meets (nay, surpasses) my expextations except there was no power cord! I read another review that had the same issue and i thoight \"that was just a fluke\". Well let me say it may be more common than fluke-ish. Fortunately the booklet that comes with the tv clearly shows a power cord is (should be) included in the box. I took it back to the store (i did site to store) and the management was kind enough to find a cord from a returned tv (it was a samsung cord but workes perfectly) to rectify the situation. A hassle? Yeah, a little, but in the end.....very pleased.
This TV is the right size for me, not too big, not too overwhelming for me to look at. The TV picture is great even without the Comcast HD service. Connecting the standard coaxial cable was a little difficult because of where the connector on the TV was located but i swapped the standard cable out for an easier to use cable supplied by Comcast with a wider blue plastic connector and it made it easier for me. Comcast tech suggested to me once to hand tighten those connections . there are 3 quick options to adjust the picture color, cool, warm and normal and settings that took me awhile to figure out like within the Picture menu where it lists \"energy saver\" you can go there to adjust other picture settings like pre-sets like movie, sports, tv etc. or personal options as well. The DVD picture is great. The speaker on the tv is tiny, it has tiny tinny sound, no big stereo sound, can hardly hear over the HVAC unit, but it is ok to listen to so as not to disturb neighbors in the wee hours of the morning as i am up then. But I did run my sound from the tv out to the stereo and it OK for me that way.\nThe remote is easy to use. the stand set up was easy, except i feel the stand not beefy enough. Its plastic. I got the Comcast remote working with it by using a code for the Samsung model with the Comcast's instructions for the LCD TV set up codes. I don't have any HD products yet. I would like to have seen more red, white and yellow RCA type connections on the TV but because of my Dolby digital stereo was able to connect my cable box, a DVD player, and a VCR through the stereo and a video cable back out to the TV I did not really need them.\nThe TV has other features that I have not used yet that look cool. I could hook it up to my PC. and I could look at photos from my camera through the USB port. Anyway I really like the picture quality on TV but the stereo speaker and sound is not that great I feel you'd really need a nice stereo with it.
For a low cost, good picture, DVD player included flat screen HD TV this is a good deal. I purchased online for a good price. It's a great deal for the price. Picture is sharp but the volume is not as pr\u00E9cise as you'd like but it's not a big deal. It's a great tv for the bedroom. Never heard of this brand before but set works like a charm. No problems with it.
I'm tough on little TV's. A little over a year ago, I bought this TV late one night when I couldn't get my cable provider's box to work on my brother's hand-me-down CRT TV. My better Emerson, which I'd sort of babied, had died although when I read about that model, I realized it was a post-production-discovered flaw and the warranty was out. No matter... I bought this one because it was cheap and small. I didn't notice the DVD player until later but have used it often and like it. This TV has stayed on 24\/7 for over a year. It sits on the floor, propped by the wall...I never even put the base on it. Cats sleep in front of it often. They walk over it. They knock it over. They've piled stuff up against it making little treasure troves and beds. Still, the TV keeps right on playing. It's sort of their TV although they let me watch it. The sound could be better but I could also add speakers to it and haven't. It picked up my cable channels immediately. There's always a bit of a learning curve (usually based on language\/translation issues) with the manual but I figured it out quickly. I've not added it to the computer yet but it looks simple enough. It might die tomorrow...but so far, it's still working!
Product was exactly as expected - refurbished means to me that it has been\nthoroughly tested before the product went into the box to be shipped. I am\n100% satisfied with this product - purchased was based on our experience\nwith Samsung products more than price.
Not sure what the TV is like; Walmart won't ship it to my home, so I chose the \"site to store\" option. They sent a Pickup Notification email, but when I went to pick it up, I was told that it hadn't been pulled & put into the back, so they couldn't give it to me. When I pointed out that there were lots available on the floor, the associate said that he wasn't allowed to release one to me, and that I'd have to come back in the daytime (it was 8 pm).\n\nI work & take classes in the daytime. The notification email said that they were open 10 to 10.\n\nTried to contact Customer Service, I was on hold 2 times for 28 & 25 minutes respectively, and then the call cut off each time. Emailing Customer Service is no better, I just get back automated responses that don't address the problem.\n\nI'll be cancelling the order & going elsewhere.\n\nThe lack of professionalism and customer service is pathetic.
