I purchased this T.V. for my 7 yr. old and he loves it. The picture, sound, and features are better than expected. It was bigger than I thought it would be. Highly recommend this television.
I LOVE THIS TV AND THE FACT THAT IT IS ACTUALLY MADE FROM THE MATERIAL THAT BASKETBALLS ARE MADE FROM. THE WHOLE THING IS A LOT BIGGER THAN I EXPECTED. THIS TV IS GREAT FOR A SPORTS THEMED ROOM. THE PRICE WAS GREATLY DISCOUNTED. THIS IS A MUST HAVE. BOTH SOUND AND PICTURE ARE GREAT TOO. NO COMPLAINTS ABOUT THIS PRODUCT FROM ME!
I purchased this tv because of its unusuall shape. that being a tv inside a giant basketball. however, i was pleasantly surprised to find a very good picture. colors were rich and pure. the audio quality not so good but for the price you can't beat this for a tv for your recreation room, or family room as a conversation piece that you can watch and enjoy. This was the 12th tv i've bought from wal-mart since august--and i have them all!!
Not a TV I would put in my living room unless back in my college "daze", but a bedroom, rec area. GREAT! Sound is great for the size of this set is great. There is an eq to adjust on the tv iteslf, along with a 1/8in headphone jack to use with a powered speaker out. I have not tried this, but all and all, this is a great TV for the buck... if you can get over the fact that it is shaped like a basketball. I love it so far. ;0)
I hate sports but the basketball surround on this V doesn't bother me because when I'm watching it all I see is that great TV screen. ONe minor problem has arrisen, and it's more and inconveniece than a real problem. The TV does not respond to universal remotes. So I have to use the supplied remote to turnit on and off, and then the cable box universal remote for changing chanels. Still if that is all that is wrong I can live with it considering the price I paid and the quality of the picture,
I bought this for my boys as a birthday gift. They loved it. It was bigger then I expected. The tv actually feels like a basketball! Great picture and sound also. Even better the price was great. Now I see it's lower then when I purchased it.
The Tv was decent for the price but then the Tv broke down 92 days after I bought so I cant return it now but have to go through the warranty deal which is a hassle,and make sure you keep the box for 90 days or you cant return it...I say go a different way as far as a TV goes.
I bought this to do double-duty as an HDTV and as a hi-res (1920X1200) computer monitor. It does both, and I'm very happy with it.
My only complaint is that if you view from much off-axis, the larger angle parts of the image are brownish gray, but it's still acceptable for the price.
As others have noted, the sound quality is nothing to sing about, but it's adequate, and if you send the audio to a good sound system, it's fine.
The goofy "basketball" appearance isn't as bad as I expected, and, for me, it puts the screen at about the right height. In some ways, the appearance is kind of cool, in a geeky way. I have this unit facing a window, and the basketball part blocks the light, so I don't have to close the blinds.
Another oddity is that the stand (fits onto the back) is solid metal, not tubing, so it's very heavy, which surprised me. But it works.
So far, this unit has been terrific, and it has exceeded my expectations.
This television is amazing it more than meets my expectations. I just hate when you're close to the tv it sounds weird. But I love to watch the tv myself when my son is at school. Great screen quality, pretty clear.
I purchased this tv for my boys room 7 & 9, they loved it, its so different, wasnt sure about hannspree brand, so i did a little research and they are reputable, and i read alot of reviews, but when i actually picked the tv up i fell in love with it, it really is bigger than you think it will be, and when i got it home and plugged it up it was such a rich and beautiful picture thats the 1080 pixs ya know, the functions are great, the sound is great, you can mount it or just let it sit on the stand its a great television, and the price when i got it was $169, worth every penny, you cant find a reg 1080 pix, 28in tv 4 that price!!! MOTHER TO PARENT GET THIS 4 UR BOYS OR EVEN A MAN WIT A THEMED ENTERTAINMENT AREA THEY'LL LOVE IT.
This TV is so awesome in my sons basketball themed room. Everyone that sees it loves it!
This tv far exceeded my expectations. For such a low price, I was expecting a bare bones, kid's version of an HD tv. It has a greater number of, and a more diverse array of input choices than a similar sized tv I bought for my daughter at a significantly higher price. The screen size is more than adequate for a child's room, and the picture is outstanding. The sound quality, while not suitable for a larger room, is more than acceptable for gaming and kids' enjoyment. The stand is beefy and sturdy, and the decorative surround looks and feels like a real basketball. Easy set up(no phone calls to make for activation)makes it a five minute affair to get from unpacking to viewing. For families on a slim budget, this is the choice they should make. While the jury is out on it's longevity, I own 2 Hannspree CPU monitors that have been trouble free for more than four years, so I expect no problems in that regard.
This is a very good basic 1080p LCD TV, the price was great. The build quality of the exterior was very solid and high quality. The reception using a HDTV antenna I was able to surprisingly get over 50 stations through the airwaves, beats out my other two flat panel TVs, a Sharp Aquos and Samsung. The picture and sound quality is average, but at the price was a great value as long as you don't mind having huge basketball on your wall. Great for den's and garages or your man cave.
I saw this tv and was blown away but to see it in person is a shocker. This picture doesn't do it any justice. The basketball surrounding the tv is well designed and like the reviews say it feels like a basketball. Love, love, love!!! I like the way the screen sits back into the basketball. It has nice big buttons and the remote stands up. All the jacks in the back have very easy access. Has decent contrast which make for a nice clear picture. The setup is so easy, the stand snaps into place. I was hesitant about purchasing this tv for one reason....my sons room is Disney cars theme but Im so excited I got it. He likes the tv as well . I gave it 4 stars only because the sound isn't that great but its nothing a speaker box can't fix. Of course a 3yr old isn't concerned with that anyhow ;-). The reason I know I got a great buy is once my daddy saw this Tv in person he went directly online and ordered it for his game room!!!! He says the football is next!!
Awesome deal for the money. Sound is great, it is larger than I thought it would be, but not a problem. Very cool, an eye catcher. Happy with my purchase.
I purchased this for my sons bedroom and it has been a big hit. It was much nicer than I expected and larger.
I purchased this item for my son, who absolutely loves basketball. We are both in love with this TV! We both love the fact that it looks and feels like a real basketball. The value is excellent. The TV is actually bigger than it looks because it measures at 28" but that is not including the basketball frame. It was easily to assemble.
My 2 and 3 yo LOVE this TV. I won't pretend to be any expert on HDTVs or electronics, but the set up and initial performance of the TV was worth the money. It looks super cool too. We may be looking to get another one for when the kids visit their grandparents. We bought the flat mount ($10) through site-to-store as well but so far have not mounted it. The stand is more sturdy than I expected looking at the photos. Still for safety, we will be mounting ours. Our purchase price was $169 but it's inched up since to I think $188 now.
Ok, these thigs are great! I bought 2 to complete an AMD Eyefinity triple monitor setup.What most people dont know, is HaNNSpree manufactures great monitors and that is the reason i gave these a shot.I already had a 28 inch monitor from them and when i seen these for 169 a piece i decided to get them since i paid almost 300 for my Hannspree monitor. These are actaually 1920 X 1200 (like my original monitor) and not just 1080p(1920 x1080) and i can assure you they are every bit as good as my dedicated monitor. I also hooked my cable up to this and i have no complaints about the picture.Not sure if i can get them out of the basketballs, but havent tried yet.Anyways, as far as value and quality, these cant be beat.
The picture is very clear. The TV is loud enough to hear down the hallway at half volume. The size is perfect for our needs (bedroom).
Love this brand. This is our 2nd Hanspree tv and we also have a Hanspree monitor.
