I bought this TV to replace an old 20" analog tube TV that was connected to my house roof antenna with an external digital TV tuner, and also play VCR tapes on it. It is mounted on a wall swivel stand that I normally watch while working out on a bicycle trainer or lifting weights. When I first bought the tube TV, OTA broadcasts were all LD analog signals, but now that everything is digital and many broadcasts are HD, I was missing a lot with the old TV. I have a 42" 1024P HDTV in my living room that is connected to an HD cable box with an HDMI cable, and I cannot see any difference in picture quality between it and the 24" 720P VIZIO E240AR connected to the roof antenna with a coaxial cable. The sound is also excellent, and I only have to set it at 50% volume to hear it clearly anywhere in the room. During the channel scan it found 52 digital channels and even one analog channel, or nearly twice as many as the digital tuner box that I was using with my tube TV. Only two channels had no signal and a third a very poor signal, so I went into setup and removed them, but the remaining channels are very clear with good sound, whether they are HD or LD. Overall, I am very pleased with this TV and would recommend it.
