How will this TV fare on a wall mount? Will the DVD player get in the way?

I have a 26" version of this same unit, have had it for about 4 years. was our bedroom tv, until we upgraded and then move our old 50' into the bedroom and this one into the bathroom. has held up great, dvd player works fine. Zero Complaints.
Considering grabbing this one for the kids room.

The OP may have a bunch of Blu-ray discs; he won't be able to play them with this unit, period.

You'd better watch it.
The ACLU, TSA, and, maybe, the DOJ will not like the insinuation that all assassins and terrorists are males with long, bushy beards.

I'm sure you could find a similar or much cuter one at a local shelter

I'm just hanging out, really.

Not the best of deals for a refurb.. and RCA isn't the best of brands for LCDs. I'd think I'd rather go for a Sceptre 32" at Walmart (new LCD) for 179.98 over this. Or the LED version for 209.98, and buy a separate dvd player.

History: TV + Built in cheapo VCR = bad.

now you have a TV with a cheap broke THING on it and you have to go buy a new THING and plug it in.

the cheap broke THING however was not Cheap for you. LOL they built the whole thing and elevated the price, you paid premium dollars for a cheap broke thing.


much better to buy your TV then buy your superior choice for the player, or at the very least a cheap disposable one for the right price.



Dude, the price is also CHEAP!!! $200.00 bucks, what are expecting to get???

Hi I am in Nashville and our comcast has analog to digital converters for tv's that don't have a cable box. I want this for a second room where I do not need to get the higher channels. Would this tv work for this situation?

So...it says USB = 1 (service)...does that mean the USB port is only for doing service on the unit, or what? My bottom line is: will it play video files directly?

Thanks!

Yes. Most cable companies across the US offer HD broadcasts directly to your HDTV WITHOUT a channel box or converter but without any PPV or premium services. In other words, just put the cable directly into the TV cable connector, let the TV autoscan, and you will get all standard channels and local HD channels (CBS HD, NBC HD, ABC HD, FOX HD , CW HD, etc.).

In fact, many people that don't want to pay for a HDTV cable service don't realize that they can watch all local HD broadcasts if they just remove the box and let the TV autoscan the channels.

I have this TV because I needed a built in DVD player for a lobby room and just wanted the TV on the mount with no wires or external hardware.

It's kind of thick but not too bad, the picture is okay, the sound is obviously what you think a tv of this size and quality sounds like (but you know you can hear it so its good enough). It's not a bad TV. The dvd player works fine. I use it to play powerpoint presentations converted to DVD format in the lobby room of the place I work when important customers and such arrive. It suits my purposes perfectly and looks just fine on the wall minus that ugly orange bar at the bottom which I don't get.

Woot.com only ships to the United States so it would be really weird for them to have a region 4 DVD player.

I owned an RCA tv (32", no DVD player) for all of 10 months. The power board died on it, and RCA customer service is a nightmare to deal with. It should have been covered under warranty, but they gave me the runaround for months, and wanted to charge me more than the tv was worth new to fix it. I will never buy another RCA product again. I hope your luck is better than mine.

That's still better than the 480p you get with a DVD.

I've seen Westinghouse TV's playing in stores. Definitely second tier, or third, picture quality. No thanks.

A lot of people say that...a lot of people also love their a combo phone/PDA/camera/vidcam/GPS/music player/movie player/watch/alarm clock, which was more expensive than this deal.

I wonder what the Venn diagram overlap between those two sets of people is?

I don't know about this particular unit, but last Christmas I replaced two 13" combo TV/VCRs with LCD/DVD combos (different makes). The family likes them, but on both of them the DVD player is the dumbest DVD player I have ever seen. You have to change inputs on the LCD (e.g., from cable to DVD) in order to eject the DVD. If you turn off the TV in the middle of the DVD and turn it on later, you have to start all over, previews and all.

On my $50 stand-alone sony player I can change DVDs (e.g., take out the grown-up movie and put in a kid's movie), and when I put an old one back in, it remembers where I left off. I guess I am spoiled by that.

thomas998 wrote:I had an old Akai TV with the same resolution years back, when you tried to use it as a monitor you had black bands around the viewing area because there was no setting on the computer that would match the TV, the closest I could get was 1280 x 720 that resulting in a smaller usable screen than the expected 32 inch viewing area. I expect this to be the same thing. So if you are expecting to use this as a cheap big monitor you may be disappointed when you find that you don't get a 32 inch screen you get closer to a 30 inch screen.



Years ago being the operational term.

My current video card has a 1366x768 setting on it. And even that is about 2 and a half years old now.

There's no added benefit having a bluray on such a small tv.

From the ad:

"With a 3000:1 contrast ratio, the TV produces darker blacks, brighter whites and more vivid colors"

THAN WHAT?

3000:1 is acceptable but nothing to brag about by a long shot, its pretty average, if not a little below these days. Still if you use descriptors like "darker", "brighter", "more vivid", they need a comparison or they are meaningless.

I have two feet, which allows me to run faster!

There is still a benefit, especially on a set that can do 720p. Sure it is being downscaled from 1080p and you aren't seeing nearly the amount of detail stored on the Bluray, but it would look a lot better than a DVD, all of which are encoded at 480i (any 480p DVD output is being upscaled by the player).

Even on a standard def set, Blu-ray has the potential to look better due to the fact that there is less compression in place. Just like two releases of the same movie on DVD can look different if one is more compressed than the other. Granted, it wouldn't be a huge difference, but it would be different.

I personally have a 40" TV and can tell whether something is 720p or 1080p, so I'm sure 32" is enough to distinguish between 480i and 720p.

Also has a lot to do with how close you are sitting. If you are 3 feet from the set it will make a much bigger difference than it would at 10 feet.

Only when I have to, and there's no other way to watch something. Also makes sense for collections of old TV shows that were shot in 480i to begin with.

Everything else I go Blu-ray.
