  • A. If the Add to Cart button is not available then the item is no longer available. It may not be available because it is an in-store item only, on back order, or because it has been sold out. Typically it would have this information posted but it's not always easy to see that. This particular item was only available at that price in stores during the Black Friday sale. I was crazy enough to sit in line for 8 hrs on Black Friday to get it.

  • A. It was only available in store for purchase and the numbers were very few. There were only 18 available at the store I went to and some of us stood in line for 5 hours. I've read online that other stores had them in even fewer numbers. All 18 were claimed by 2am and we were not allowed to leave the line except if we had a buddy to hold our place even though they had handed us tickets. They let us pay and drive around back at about 20 mins. To 5am to pick them up.

HDMI inputs- problematic

it was all great i have a pretty good 50" on my living room now. and here's the glitch i found.. being an AV savvy gives me more knowledge on whats not working and whats working..i'm actually having problems on HDMI inputs.. meaning the 3 of them. 1st problem on hdmi: if i switch channels from my xfinity box between HD to SD... the picture will disappear but the audio is still there.. SD to SD is ok.. HD to HD channels are ok too. SD to HD is ok.. but the HD to SD doesnt.. example.. FOX SD is 5 and FOX HD is 805.. so from 805 to channel 5.. the video will disappear but audio is present. 2nd issue is when i play dvd on my blueray. with all thos upcoming shows at the front of the main movie..i dnt think it changes format and resolution but it keeps on losing the video signal. i called the very unuseful support of emerson but they ask me to call walmart first so... im going to walmart tomorrow. did anyone of u experience this too? Thanks. should i recommend? 50/50 actually but the size is pretty good for the price.

I bought my TV on Black Friday 2014 and been using it everyday plus sometimes it never was turned off for days at a time . Of course it finally caught up w/ me and the picture went out . Fortunately I have Direct TV and they offer a Service Protection Plan for $25 extra a month . Which is better than an extended warranty you buy w/ any purchase or purchase separately . The Service Plan covers all your electronics in your home plus more . I ended up paying the initial service fee of $50 then one of their contracted warranty companies will determine if my TV is worth fixing or if DirectTV is just going to replace it . Seriously this is genius... I paid $298 in 2014, used it full time 24/7 and now in August 2016 I'm going to be getting like an almost brand new TV again or the money to replace it . I'm waiting for this years Black Friday if I have to replace it . In a previous comment someone mentioned their TV was light . That is further from the truth . The weight is the most negative critique I can give about it . So I'm thinking that Emerson has made a few different models of one particular model and that's why all these comments were Good/Great or Bad/Awful .

Got a 32" Emerson led on a Black Friday special in 2014 a year and a half later now can't get the tv to turn on. I will never buy this brand or a tv from Walmart again nor do I recommend anyone else!!

I didn't stand in line for 13 hours (wow!) but I did wait from 8pm until 5am on Black Friday to get this tv for $298. We were allowed to sit in chairs we brought in. So it wasn't that bad. I got one of only 10 that our local store had. I hit a pothole on the way home that would jar your fillings lose and I was concerned it may have damaged the tv but it was fine. The picture on this lcd tv is as good as any brand large-screen lcd tv I've seen. It has more features than an Insignia brand lcd 50" that I recently bought for $499# Go here for a detailed description of it's features: http://www#emersonaudiovideo#com/products/product#php?id=39 I like the fact that you update the software as Emerson develops new updates. If I had to find something to nitpick, it would be the sound. The speakers face downward, not forward. It's not great sound, but neither is the sound from my Insignia with forward-facing speakers. And both tvs have a tad of brightness dropoff along the sides. It's not really noticeable unless you're looking for it. Overall, this is by far the best value of any tv purchase I've ever made.

So Disappointed with Emerson TV & Cust Serv

Got this TV for a $298 black friday special and starting March, the HDMI ports now only occasionally work. In order to play the PS3, i have to keep turning the tv on and off several times and wait a few minutes to get a picture becuase when you switch to any other mode, such as TV to HDMI 1 or from HDMI 1 to HDMI 3, the tv screen blacks out. Then it makes a loud brief screech noise like the sound is about to go out as well. Dealing with Emerson customer service is so frustrating. I have had several reps and each have told me several different things about getting the tv fixed. No one wants to provide in-home service to my tv that is still under warranty for parts, i have to ship my tv all the way to ohio and wait 4 weeks. I could go on and on about this and my other encounters, but needless to say, I will not purchase Emerson products again!!!

Picture and TV were great for 2 weeks then when changing stations or simply watching a show it would drop the picture when a scene change or going to commercial. the sound would still be there but would lose the video. I could turn off TV then turn back on and video would come back. this is the second o9f theses TVs that did this. Wal Mart took back both TVs, but was an inconvenience to have to rebox both TVs and get help loading into van and returning twice. I had to spend more money on another brand of TV to get the same features but the manager at Wal mart, Esmerelda was great in understanding my frustration and gave me an instore credit of 10% toward another TV. Wal Mart was great but I wouldn't ever get another Emerson.

We stood in line last Black Friday for this tv for them not to be in stock, so we had to have it shipped almost a month later. At first it was great, now less than a year later, it won't turn on and makes a chirpy beepy sound. Our warranty we got won't replace it and to fix it would cost more than we paid, so they are refunding our $ which for what we paid for it we can barely get a 32" tv. So I am very disappointed with Emerson and Walmart.

This TV looks and works amazingly good. It was easy to set-up and program the channels. The speakers don't sound great at first, but once you play with the sound settings, it sounds great. For those of you who don't have HD cable or satellite, this TV looks really good as well.

I stood in line for 13 hours at walmart to this tv for my mom. I got the first one! She loves it and its every bit as good as my LG 50 in I have. The remote is very simple and small which I think is very nice not 1500 buttons that you will never use. Way to go walmart.

This is an awesome TV. My wife and I waited all night for it on Black Friday and just bought an additional one for our bedroom at $500. For the price you cant beat it! Great picture, sound, Madden and Black Ops look great on it, along with all my sports and blu rays, etc. I purchased the Orion 46 in today for $400 that was on sale and its HORRIBLE compared to the Emerson, which prompted me to exchange it and get the one I knew was worth the price. Great TV.
