I like Philips stuff in general. I have a 42" plasma HD tv that I bought about two years ago that has been incredible.
They still make TVs under 30 inches? Can it be used as a computer monitor?
Beware. I got a refurb Philips a few months ago from Woot that was a complete mess. The menu wouldn’t go off the screen and the volume would randomly turn up and down without prompting. I wouldn’t waste my time with another Philips refurb.
Quick warning: 1366×768p is not a standard HD resolution, it may not be perfect, but it should be un noticeable.
Subtract that bezel and you’ve got something very pocketable.
doesn’t seem like such a good deal for 720p instead of 1080p, and refurbished and only 22"
if you have an HDMI output…yes
Nice Big Brown Box, plain simple and does not draw attention. http://sale.images.woot.com/MN94176C_specs9.jpg
in for 1. replacing with my 13 inch Montgomery Ward tv in my bedroom. haha
That’s because they are now made in China. We got one of the last European ones, a refurb from Woot, and it’s great. But I wouldn’t touch a Chinese one.
Here’s the Manual
this isn’t really that good of a deal…especially for a refurb.
I have a couple of these around the house that the kids play games on or I use when I need to use dual monitors with my laptop. At this price though, I’d look for something maybe 26’ or so, or add about $50 and get a brand new one.
The problem I had with these (i have multiple brands, not just this model) is that the computer display didn’t take the whole screen as I wanted it to, and when it did, I had to set weird resolutions to do so.
If you just need a small monitor/tv around then they are fine, but other than that… I’m not all that impressed.
I think the fact that it is a refurb, people need to take that into consideration, for sure.
But at this price point, an HDTV with digital tuner, 2 HDMI ports (one on side, one on back), other connections, and 720p, it’s a good deal.
Heck, at that price if one gets two years out of it, that’s a good deal.
