      I have a lot of windows and need an LCD with a non reflective screen. Does this set have a polished reflective screen or a matte screen that only gives a soft indistinct glow from outside light?

      • A. It is a matte finish but you can still see a very soft reflection with all the blinds being open. The TV has an engergy setting that will automatically make the TV brighter for daylight hours. My bedroom has a lot of natural light and it does not interfere with the picture.

      We purchased a Sanyo 42" 3 years ago and bought the extended warranty, in November of 2012 we turned on the tv the screen was half black we called customer service and told them our problem they gave another number to call for technical issues. Big mistake they had no clue what we were talking about even though I sent pictures. I also sent all the warranty information, the tv information and all seriel numbers. This has been going on since November 2012 they are not honering the warranty nor are they going to reimburse us for the TV we can't use. The customer service is terrible they need to take classes on how to deal with customers and their products. We had it appraised at a tv repair shop it was going to cost $500.00 for a $350.00 tv.

      I felt the same way as everyone else, "great value, good picture, all around great tv for the price" well that was 2 years ago, and if you are looking for a short term tv then this is your product, you get what you pay for and I will never pay for Sanyo or Panasonic products again....My tv is only 2 years old, recently it has started making a screaming noise from behind the tv and yetserday the picture went out but the sound was perfectly fine, so I started to research, and this seems to be a common problem for Sanyo TV's.....they are making cheap tv's that last around the 2year mark, don't believe me google sanyo tv with your model number and complaints.....read how many people have had the SAME problem as me and the best part you ask, Sanyo doesn't stand behind their product....I may be crazy but I don't ever remember buying a tv that only worked for two years!!!!! I wouldn't and will never purchase another Sanyo product ever again!!!!! $500 was alot to spend on a disposable TV!!!!

      Easy to set-up. Beautiful color and clarity. The only problem I had and am sure others have experienced IF you use SAT. HDTV, when you initially do the set-up on the TV, instruction manual fails to tell you that at completion of channel scanning (which will display 0 Analog channels found, 0 Digital channels found). After calling customer support, I found out it will not display/detect channels. Just bypass this one step, AFTER the display indicates Channel Scan Successful. All the channels are detected by your receiver, not the TV. It will however, show what it detected during it's scan. ie: HDMI1 (yes) HDMI3; (yes - if you had something plugged into that spot.) Drove me nuts for some minutes. But, by just completing the initial setup and ignoring 0 channels found, I exited the setup and WHAM, there was my channels and guides.. Sound is good. Easy to setup your surround sound system if you have one. No complaints EXCEPT, no swivel base. No biggie. Works perfect.

      I take reviews (both positive and negative) with a grain of salt. Sure, I want to see what others have to say, but at the same time, I’m a little leery. I also do a lot of research before I buy anything. This TV included. I’ve now had this TV for a week and find nothing I’m not happy about. I have a tube Sanyo that I’ve had for 12 years, and there is nothing wrong with it. It was just time for something new. I am still excited to own this TV. I use it as a TV and computer monitor. With a wireless keyboard, I can kick back in bed and browse or chat to my hearts’ content. The picture is great, the sound is fine with me. I find no issues as described in the negative reviews I read. Something that surprised me: I have basic cable and with my old TV there was no reason to go digital, spend the extra money, and have another box and remote, yet with the basic, the TV is picking up digital signals from somewhere. I now have several “digital” channels. However, seeing the difference in analog and digital, I’ll probably be upgrading my cable. What a difference.

      I had high hopes for this Sanyo. I own a Sanyo 27" CRT TV and a Sanyo 42" Plasma HDTV and both are superb and have been trouble free. I was casually shopping for another TV and saw this in the store for $388, so I bought one without doing any research on it. This was a huge mistake!. Out of the box all of the HDMI inputs were dead. I then did some research on the Internet and found this was a common problem with this particular model. There were many other people like myself who experienced non-working HDMI inputs when they turned on the TV for the first time. And there were many others who reported their HDMI inputs stopped working after three to six months of ownership of this model. DO NOT BUY THIS MODEL SANYO - IF YOU DO YOU WILL LIKELY BE BRINGING IT BACK.

      The sound and picture are great, I only gave them 4 because there may be something better. I bought this TV with the warranty refund from my last TV (different brand). Sanyo had one of the lowest percentage of warranty returns, plus the price was great for this size screen. The picture is great, even watching hockey. You can choose from 3 picture presets or really tinker with it manually. The sound is suprisingly good. Watching the Grammys right now and it sounds great (for a TV). 3 audio presets, as well as auto, plus you can manually adjust bass, treble, bass enhancer and 4 band eq. I just use the presets depending if I'm watching TV or listening to music channels. There's stereo outs and digital audio out for your home theater. The speakers aim downward. I have mine on the stand and it doesn't hamper the sound. The manual power, input, channel and volume buttons are on the bottom. Almost thought it didn't have them, and I sometimes lose the remote. This is probably handy if you have it wall mounted up high. Lots of inputs, a couple for my old vcr and dvd, 3 hdmi , pc input, usb, and oh yeah the cable/satellite in. And it was under $499 where the price of the extended warranty jumps up. If it continues to function as it does now I am totally happy with this.

      I bought this TV as a upgrade but little did I no it was actually a downgrade! I was expecting an exceptional picture but I did not get it with this particular brand. After 3 day's of owning the TV a Red Line started showing up on the screen I thought it was a fluke or bad connection after rewiring everything the red line persisted and even got worse!! Over the next couple of days it just started showing up more and more and as others have said in their reviews it was on the left side of the screen I asked around and did some research online and found out that this is a problem that Sanyo Tv's have! I wish I would have known that information prior to my purchase after I found out all the problems that the brand has had with the red lines I returned the TV a week to the day later! I exchanged the TV for a 43" Samsung Plasma and the picture quality is a 100x better than the Sanyo. I would recommend you keep looking unless You wanna go through a whole lotta hassle I was very disappointed with this TV! Very happy with my Samsung and it was basically the same price!

      Lost my 32” Flat screen to Lighting surge and needed to replace. I wanted to replace with an inexpensive larger (42’) monitor. After looking at all the available offerings at my local Wal-Mart I was surprised that the Sanyo looked as good, if not better then some models that cost considerably more. I use Windows Media Center, with Over the Air signal as my HDMI/ HD Source , and it works Great! My new Sanyo DP-42841. picture is incredible. I was blown away with some of the recorded (Hawaii Five 0) episodes I had saved with the Media Centers record function Netflix picture quality is wonderful . I have my home security system plugged into the VGA port and that works just fine. Just remember if you use the VGA port to hook your computer to this Monitor you give up the #1 HDMI port. Hey you still have two more…lol. My computer muli-media center has a HDMI interface and works great with my new Sanyo. I run external speakers with my Entertainment Center I did try the onboard speakers and found them to be adequate with lots of adjustments to play with. That reminds me this model has a lot of preset/ manual adjustments that should suit everyone personal needs. I am sure everyone that owns this set will love the USB picture slide show function. Thanks Wal-Mart for the really great deal! Nothing out there can touch this one for under 500 hundred bucks.

      I recently upgraded from a 32" LG and bought this Sanyo 42" tv. I paid $450 plus tax inside the store (so dont buy it online). I was a little worried about the sound (after reading the previous reviews) but I was blown away by the quality of the sound. I have a sound bar that I had to buy b/c the sound on the 32" was horrible and I thought that I would need it for this onem but I did not. The picture is nice, bright and clear even though it is a 60hz TV. There are a few pre-set settings that are useful. The viewing angle is also nice (at 178 degs).
