I snatched this TV set at $98 on a Black Friday 2011 sale at a local Walmart store. All in all this Television comes with all minimum input/output connections. Specifications are not easy to find, but they are available on the outside of the box and are as follows: It has 1 component input, 1 RCA Input, 1 SVGA monitor input, 1 PC/Audion Input, 1 HDMI Input, 1 Coaxial Input, 1 Headphones output and 1 Digital Audio Coax Output. All connections go on the back of the TV. There are no side ports available. The package includes the TV, 1 plastic stand, 1 power cable, 1 remote control and two complimentary AAA batteries. When turned on the TV is rated at 29W Power Output, which complies with Energy Star requirements. It also supports Dolby Digital Inputs, HDTV Input and bidirectional HDMI technology. The website for support of SANSUI products is www.sansuiproducts.com and this TV is distributed in the US by Orion Sales Inc. 3471 N Union Drive; Olney, IL 62450. The unit is very light, it weighs a little bit less than 8 pounds and LxPxH dimensions are 18.6"x6.9"x14.3". This TV set is wall mountable using a mount kit compatible with VESA pattern 100x100. Orion will cover this product for wormanship and manufacturing defect or malfunction for 1 year if used under normal conditions. Warranty is void due to negligence, misuse, etc.. If you want a hassle free warranty, you can purchase extended warranty through walmart, which is probably the way to go. The setup of the TV is very straightforward. You decide if you are going to mount or put the unit on a stand. The stand comes with two pieces which are easy to attach using screws that come with the unit. Once your TV is assembled, you proceed to connect all devices. In my case I have regular cable and a satellite box. I used the HDMI Input for my satellite box and the coax connection for the cable. You also connect the AC cord. Upon turning on the TV, the first menu prompt for what mode you want to run, whether store mode or home mode. The store mode is used for display on stores where the brightness is set at the highest, which is not Energy star compliant. In my case I changed the mode to Home and proceeded with the channel search since I have a cable and I need to program the TV with the channels available by my Cable Provider. The TV will search and program all Digital and Analog channels available though the network. THE REVIEW
Screen looks great and colors are sharp and vivid. Perhaps the best images come through my HD channels. I can gladly to report when compared to previous experiences, that the sound from these speakers is fair and acceptable. Most LCD TVs I had previously owned at these blockbuster prices had terrible sound. This TV is not one of them, despite the TV selling under $100 it delivers standard audio by itself. Of course having headphone output, you can add additional media speakers or stereo output. I don't see anything that suggest, the TV will support surround sound. I was concern a little bit with the lack of 1080p resolution, but looking at the image and how small the screen is, I really don't see any significant difference between this TV and my larger 1080p TV. I have this TV set in the kitchen and I can see the image from almost any angle. I think this TV delivers more than I expected and being a 19" Tv selling for $98 is like paying $6 per inch, which is a deal that I can only find with refurbished TVs of similar sizes. Other larger TVs cost about $10 per inch.
