  • A. Sound is very flat. It's my understanding that almost all flat screens are this way. There's not enough room for quality speakers. I use a home theater sytem anyway, just like I did for my old tv

  • A. The sound is decent-not great, not bad. It's not the loudest but adequate for my needs (personal home use). I understand from reviews on other flat screens that none of them have great sound because there is only room for small speakers.

  • A. LED TVs are very thin, notallowing much room for robust spreakers. My RCA sound was weak and tinny, as I expected, so I ordered a soundar with a Coaxial digital input, since this TV uses a Coaxial Digital Audio output for hooking up seperate speaker sources. The soundbar offers a vast improvement over the TV speakers. Overall, the tv picture is very, very good, crisp, and sharp. No complaints in that area.

  • A. not good if you have Dish DVR. I don't know about any other cable/satellite hook up, but on my system, I got terrible screeching noises when changing channels, or advance/reversing the shows. This is in HD of course (digital, not analog, that is). Analog works fine, but the point is to have an HD TV!

I bought this because of the price and the fact we had a RCA TV and it worked really well. We received it fairly quickly and it went downhill from there. After hooking everything up we turned the TV on, using the button on the back because we were standing right there. The picture was blurry and the volume had to be turned way up to hear at normal levels and there was some static when we turned it up. Then I grabbed the remote to set up the Roku and nothing happened. I changed the batteries hoping this was the problem - nope! I called RCA and they said they would send a new remote and I would receive it in 3-5 business days - it took 10 days to get it, only to find out that was not the problem. I called them back and they said it was a bad IR sensor in the TV and they would set up a repair order and someone would contact me in 24-48 hrs to set up a time. I heard nothing in the 48 hrs, so I returned the TV to my nearest Walmart store (60 miles away - don't have one where I live# and we bought a LG TV #cost a little more but WELL WORTH IT) from the Walmart where we made the return.

This tv was the best value that I could find for a 42" LED but I was/am worried that other stores no longer carry RCA tvs and Walmart only carries them online. I also thought it was odd that I couldn't find ANY reviews about this tv. Anyway, I took a chance and so far, so good but it's only been a few weeks. I bought the extended warranty (I usually don't) just in case. No complaints...yet.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

After a lot of research, I decided I wanted an LED. This was the best price for this size TV. Like most flat screens, there's just not enough room to put quality speakers in such a thin design, But the setup was super easy, and fast. Picture quality is EXCELLENT. It's been just under a week, but I'm very happy with this purchse. I'll be adding a sound bar, but DVD's. Blue Ray, cable tv, and network televison ALL have crystal clear quality. I'm enjoying it!

Sound Problems

This unit has a good number of inputs and decent picture quality. However, over half the time when we turned on the TV the sound would not work from any source. When the sound worked, it would sometime fade in and out. Also, about 20% of the time the unit would say "No Signal". Turning the TV off and back on again would fix the problem. Note that RCA no longer makes their own TVs. It's a good price, but I wouldn't risk buying another one.
