    I bought this for a tech-challenged family member who had an old TV and an old DVD player. I thought this would update both and make it easier by avoiding the cords of a separate player. While it does make it easier, the quality is below what you could get in separate units for the same total price. The TV picture is good (not wowza good, but solid), but the DVD player is a disappointment. Despite being installed with an HDTV, the DVD player does not upconvert to HD so DVDs are shown in SDTV (480p). Also, you cannot load a DVD until the Source input is switched to the DVD setting, an annoying waste of time during which you have to turn off programming and watch a blank screen. If for space or simplicity reasons, someone has to have a combo unit, this is probably okay, but for the same total price and only about 5 minutes of setup, a buyer could get an equal or better TV with a much better DVD player and, in my opinion, a better overall product and experience.

    When I first received my 26 inch Element television I was pleased. It arrived quickly and was not damaged. Additionally, the picture quality was amazing. However, 6 months after I purchased this TV, it STOPPED working. Point blank...it literally stopped working. I did some research online and soon learned this a common problem among Element TVs. Element contracts out another company to deal with its defective products. The representative I spoke was extremely rude and unprofessional. This rep refused to give me the name of the company or where they were located because I informed him that I planned to report them. It took a long time to convince him to let me speak to a manager and when he did so he didn't let me know that he was transferring me to his supervisor. He did so while I was in mid-sentence. I was upset but I was NOT rude to him. I have never encountered such blatant unprofessionalism in my life. The manager informed me that I would have to ship my TV to them to be repaired and that it may take up to 4 WEEKS to repair. I asked if I could have a replacement shipped instead but she informed that is not their policy. I even learned that I would be responsible for all SHIPPING costs!!! I couldn't believe what I was hearing. Shipping a bulky TV is extremely expensive. DO NOT BUY this product. Yes, it's tempting because it's so affordable but you will absolutely get what you pay for.

    Got this as a bedroom unit to replace the last tube unit we had. 26" seems to be just the right size for a smaller room like ours. Picture quality is good for a budget unit and the tuner is better than the one in our previous two flat-screen units. Without any additional hardware, it lets you tune into any/all available sub-channels (example: 56-0, 56-1, 56-2, etc). This gave us access to HD channels we'd normally have to rent a box from the cable company for! I can only find fault with two things on this TV. 1) The DVD player will not you load/remove a disc unless you select it as a source. Kind of a pain, but not a big deal. The player itself provides great video quality. 2) The remote is not well designed. There are so many buttons, but yet there is no regular play '>' button for when you use the rewind, or fast FWD selelctions (<<, >>). Not an easy remote to use when you're in a dark room and just want to switch to a station or set the sleep timer. Other than those issues, it's a great deal for the $$.

    Good HDTV for your money; don't hesitate to order this Element if you're looking for an HDTV/DVD combo in this 26" size. I sort of bought it for my bedroom because it had the built-in DVD for my limited space, but also because I have 2 other Element HDTV's purchased about 3 years ago when they were carried at Circuit City. I am very pleased with all 3 of my Element TV's. My small one in the kitchen is a real workhorse -- is used nearly all day every day and has never let me down. The pros are the important stuff...good picture/sound. I can change the screen aspect to fill the entire screen, very important when you're a senior like me & the eyes aren't like they used to be. Easy to change to DVD mode. Haven't figured out all the menus yet, but I will -- the sound is loud so that will need adjusting. Only cons I've found: I hate the way the cable cord attaches at the very top & side of the TV because the cord shows too much since I use this TV as a tabletop on its stand, not as a wall mount. I also hate the shiny piano black case because I prefer a matte black frame rather than the cheap looking shiny black. The older Elements had the matte black but not so for this newer model. Another con...Walmart took a good 2 weeks to get it Site to Store, but that has nothing to do with the TV itself. Also note that the measurements stated by Walmart on the item description page are incorrect...this TV is NOT 33" wide as stated. This 26" model is about 26" wide and about 18" high when on its stand. I think the stated measurements on Walmart's page are for the 32" Element. I will update this review in a few weeks after I've used the TV for awhile.

    I bought this TV not quite 2 years ago when I moved out of my parents house to put in my living room. At the time it was about $50-$100 cheaper than other models in its size and fit my budget. PROS: 1) Price 2) Picture and sound quality are decent even though I don't have an HD cable plan or anything special. CONS: 1# I have to use a seperate remote to control the TV/DVD played because Element TV's can not be programed with Comcast remotes. 2) After just about a year of using the TV the buttons used to operate the DVD player stopped working #BIG bummer when you can't find the TV remote!!). The DVD player still works fine, but you have to use the remote to eject, pause, play etc. Which brings me to the conclusion that you get what you pay for

    We bought this TV as a Mother's Day gift for a woman who has everything & needs nothing. She had only mentioned wanting a flat screen Tv & I searched online for one that would meet her requirements of TV/DVD combo & this one had more bang for the buck! I found one on O.co that was smaller & was the same price that this one cost with shipping included- so it only made sense to order this one & have it shipped to her for less than the other! She absolutely LOVED it! I couldn't be more pleased. She said the picture is out of this world clear & it was the perfect size. Mission accomplished!

    Best choice TV/DVD combo for the price, excellent quality picture and sound. I researched online and in stores for a good quality inexpensive tv/dvd combo, this was the best choice based on customers reviews I don't regret the purchased at all. I only have one negative observation but it shouldn't stop you from buying this item it has to do with changing the channels is a little slow when changing from channel to channel but is something minor I personally can deal with it. Love this product!!

    I bought each one of my kids one of these tvs for xmas and ended up returning them both. One of them had to be returned right after I hooked it up.....there was a large line going right thru the center of the tv..kind of hard to watch tv when the screen is split in two! Then the other one only lasted a month....it would freeze up and when it would work, everything was moving in slow motion & fuzzzy!!! What a waste of my money!!!!

    I trusted the Wal-Mart Brand but it would not work when installed. A defective product the MFG. said. Wal-Mart did re-fund my money but the wasted time fooling with it was disapointing to say the least.
