  1. This little TV is great for a kitchen or as a small tv for a guest room or childs room. The remote is simple and concise. Setup is a breeze. Wall mounts easily. The picture is excellent. The viewing angle is excellent. I researched alot of 19″ LCD TV’s and decided on this one. Many other 19″ tv’s have a poor viewing angle…this one does not. The picture is clear. You will not go wrong with this TV. I have mine connected to a small radio shack Hi-DEF off-air antenna for the kitchen. I was amazed that I gets over 20 HD channels on it. The antenna is small and mounted outside. I would really compare this TV to Sony, Samsung. Its just as good. Not to mention the was about the same price as the bargain, off-brand TV”s. You wont go wrong with this little beauty! Youll see every pimple on American Idol! Whew hooh!!!!

  2. I bought this 19″ TV to replace an older CRTV I had in my guest bedroom and so far I have been very happy with my purchase. The remote is pretty simple/basic but it gets the job done. The sound and picture quality are good and I like the overall appearance of the TV. I would recommend this TV to others. So, if you are looking for a good deal on a small LCD TV then I would recommend you look at buying this TV.

    I have had this TV less than a day and I consider this my best purchase from Amazon. It took me a total of 15 minutes to have the base attached, cable hooked up, and programed. I had looked at RCA, LG, Vizio, Samsung and several others and I am very happy with my choice. I have a small apartment and my TV sets on a rolling tv cart so I can move it back when I am thru watching it. So, I was impressed with the large base and stability. The TV I had before was a Coby 15 inch, and while that is a good TV, it can’t compare to this one. I would suggest adding speakers to your purchase. I had ordered Altec Lansing speakers from Amazon before and they work perfect with this TV. The speakers hook into the headphones jack on the back of the tv and you still have a headphone jack on the speakers. The appearance of the tv is great and the size is just right. I had looked at 19, 22, 24, and even 26. I am sure glad I choose this size.

    After having owned this TV for over a month I decided that an honest review was in order,

    First the Positives: This is an inexpensive LCD TV by a name manufacturer. It is lightweight, portable, attractive and easy to hook up. It has a wonderful picture provided that you are watching well lit indoor scenes or outdoor sporting events.

    The remote control has all of the functions necessary to set up picture and sound preferences and is much easier than using the small buttons located on the right side panel of the TV.

    Now for the Negatives: Most of the negatives can be overlooked as being relatively minor. Many have complained about the sound on this TV. It is not very good. It is rather tinny but keep in mind this is a small TV with not much space to put larger, better sounding speakers. You can adjust the bass and treble through the audio settings on the menu. This does help some. The solution to this problem is to just add external speakers through the audio out jack on the back of the TV or through audio output jacks on a cable box if you have one.

    LCD TV’s unlike old picture tube tvs have to be viewed from certain angles to give you the true benefit of the picture. If the viewer is much higher then the height of the TV the picture will look very bright and washed out. If the viewer is below the height of the TV the picture can look very dark. A “tiltable” base would have helped to remedy this issue. This again can be remedied by buying a wall mount.

    The major complaint I have with this TV is the very poor contrast ratio that it has in dark indoor scenes as well as outdoor night scenes. Programs such as “CSI” which feature a lot of dimly lit indoor scenes are brutally dark. Blacks and Reds look inky with low contrast.

    I spent a lot of time calibrating and recalibrating the picture options. I read up a lot on how to do this and although I finally improved somewhat on the picture it still is darker then what it should be.

    Another important issue which I don’t think anyone has mentioned. This is an energy saving unit…and although that is good for your electric bill it is not so great for your picture. Most LCD TVS have something known as either “AUTO DIM” or “DCR (dynamic contrast ratio)”. What that does is automatically dim and brighten your backlighting as the LCD deems necessary. This annoying dimming and brightening is most active during well lit sporting events (such as a baseball game). Larger more expensive sets have a menu option to disable this. You cannot disable it on this set.

    If I had too do it over again I would not buy this set. On the other hand I am not that unhappy where I would return it. For it’s price it is OK.

    For those interested the following are what I found to be the best calibrations for this TV (in TV viewing mode). Please note you MUST set individual calibration settings for EACH input (dvd, pc, etc.)

    Brightness: 40


    Sharpness: 30

    Tint: 5

    Color:13-15 (personal preference..but anything higher seems “cartoonish”

    Temperature: Cool (personal preference)

    Backlight: 8 (the higher the backlight the more contrast you lose)

    ***DNR (digital noise reduction): OFF…The factory default is “ON”. Having the setting “ON” will remove fine detail from your picture.

    I hope this helps someone.

    My father was recently hospitalized and is now spending much more time in bed than before. Moving the large TV into his bedroom was not an option, so I purchased this from a local retailer. The following notes are after a couple of days usage.

    Pros: this is a very compact unit and is not too heavy. It fits on a hospital bed table (like this one: Hospital Overbed/Over Bed Top Table Computer Tray ). This allows his caregivers to move the TV to easy viewing distance and is a real plus. I was concerned that the unit would be unbalanced, but the weighted base is more stable than I originally imagined. It seemed like it took a long time to find all the channels on his cable system during the initial setup, although I have not done this often enough with other TVs to judge. Finally, the basic controls are on the left side of the unit, and the TV can be operated without the remote.

    Cons: The remote is not designed for use by an older person with declining eyesight. The controls on the side have no contrasting labels, only labels molded into the black plastic, and unless you have good lighting, it is difficult to use them. In my fathers case, the caregivers will probably be the only ones who can operate the TV.

    One additional point, which was a pro for my situation. The plug is two-prong polarized, which works with my father’s very old electrical wiring. A three-prong plug would have been a problem for me.

    In our case, I placed the unit near the riser for the over bed table. This left a lot of space for other things if needed.

    Recommended for anyone who wants a decent quality, small footprint TV.
