Reviews of the 19" at Newegg and Amazon

If you’re getting this TV for a college dorm room you’ll want to take note that the specs don’t list the tuner as having Clear QAM. Many college campuses use cable TV systems that require Clear QAM and without it you will not be able to get any digital channels. But not all is lost, you can get an external tuner to connect to the TV, however, at that point you might as well have bought a TV with Clear QAM. In any case, check with your school’s IT department to see if you need Clear QAM or not.

Im looking for a TV for my Basement we use as a workout room, anyone have an info as to if this 40" would be a good buy?

HA!

I bought two during Walmart’s Pre-black Friday sale (for $115 each :)) One in my oldest daughters room, one in ours, both wall mounted and they look great. They have super slim bezels and are much quicker to respond and boot than most “bargain” TVS. Sound leaves a lot to be desired but for a workout room I doubt you’re looking for audiophile quality.

Har-dee-har-har! :tongue:

My Civic has been very reliable.

In for one. Been waiting for a deal on an off brand 40" 1080p. Thanks Woot.

FWIW, I bought the (not offered here) 50" Element TV last Black Friday Eve at my local Walmart for $218.

I’ve been very happy with it, except for one thing: Colors are poor or “blotchy” in darker scenes. Annoyingly so.

Would I buy it again? Yes, I believe I got what I paid for. But, would I buy a refurbished 40" version for only $19 less? If this model suffers from the same flaw, definitely not. I’d hold out for a better deal.

I bought 29" at Target on Thanksgiving for $79. It works fine so far, but sound is terrible. I bought a sound bar to take care of that. Flat screen TVs seem pretty disposable these days, so might as well go as cheap as possible. I was interested in the brand because they’re the only folks who make TVs in the USA these days. But the model I bought was made in China–not sure which sizes they actually make in the US.

FedEx just left my 40" TV on the front porch all morning. I considered putting it in the basement and reporting it ‘stolen’. What the frick FEDEX?!?

Now if I could only find some ‘M5*20 isometric threaded screws’ to mount this puppy…whatever those are.
