Budget TV at its best!
Member Name: Gtiracer
Advantages: 42", clear screen, good quality picture, lots of interfaces, full HD
Disadvantages: not much, maybe picture quality would be better on higher up models
I have recently acquried this television through a competition, I was really happy to finally have my dream of an LCD TV in my front room, only problem was the first one we got had a blown speaker that the bass was fuzzy on, so it was replaced promptly and we got another one that was just fine.
Up-on first taking out of the box you have to assemble the stand if you're not going to put it on the wall, this is very simple and even comes with a tool so you can do the job, i managed to work out how to put the stand on and put it on the TV within 5-10 minutes without even looking at the instructions, so very easy indeed.
Set up to get it going is very easy, just follow the on screen instructions to set up your digital or analog channels, however these wont be much use as of 2011. presentation wise, everything looks very nice, TV looks sleek, wide variety of ports on the back and remote control is functional, light and nice to use.
TV come with 4 x HDMI ports, 1 VGA port, 2 sets of Phono Ports for surround sound setup as well. 2 Scart sockets, S-Video socket (although I have never come across anything that uses this interface. Also a USB port which i assume could display your photos if you wanted to.
If you plan to connect a PC the VGA port can only carry a maximum signal of up to 1280 x 1024 by SXGA.
If you want full HD you have to connect via the HDMI port.
The TV picture is very nice and although this is what I would call a 'budget' 42 incher it is still a very nice picture from a regular DVD player (I think this is due to Resolution+ technology, but i'll let you google that) let alone an Upscaling DVD player or Blu ray.
Would be very nice in my recommendation to add Surround sound system and a Blu ray player.
Also must mention this TV has fantastic modes that you can change into Dynamic, Movie, Standard, Gaming mode and 1 or 2 others.
All in all a fantastic TV for the money in my opinion
Summary: The best for the price I.M.O
