I've had two of these, 42 LED 1st one got returned the day i bought it had lines in the screen, 2nd one is working so far, The Sound quality is sub par, Easy setup and usability.

GREAT FOR GAMING

Not bad for a starter T.v

I own the 42-inch version. I love it and feel it's ideal for gaming, and here's why: no input lag. I've had more expensive TVs with input lag I simply couldn't turn off. This TV suffers from none of that.

I'm not super picky about image quality, however the picture/color quality looks great to me.

For $299, I've been super super happy with it and love playing games on it.

When you say no input lag are you referring to Rock Band by chance? I've been looking for a flat screen that requires a 0/0 calibration setting. At the very least a 0 on the video, I can get the audio synced up well.

Gah!

I want a 42" passive 3D LED at 120 Hz.

I know Woot isn't exactly the place to "shop" but there's been 2 multiple TV days in the last week, and the 42" is never the good one.

I have the non-3D 46", bought refurbbed from wal-mart about 6 months ago. It's great, I love it. Screen is clear, all the features are great, and it was a great price ($20 less than woot) for an LED TV - at the time it was about the same as most other refurbbed 42"ers. I'll take the 4 extra inches. And actually, Hisense had a great booth at CES, seem to be up and comers. This is a good deal!

Does Hisense offer a warranty as well besides the Woot limited 90 day? Refurbed and lukewarm comments make me cautious about scooping up the 42"...

Honestly if 90 days is all that is offered i'd pass and get a New one that comes with 90 day from store and 1yr from Hisense, Reason i say that is i took my 1st one back the day i bought it was broke right out of the box

That being said if there is a better warranty available then go for it for the money,

The picture is great if ur using Full HD blu ray or gaming, But if u hook it to standard Cable straight to T.v the picture quality will not impress you and u'll need a sound bar for loud action movies, But most lower end T.vs now days require that

Very light weight and seems well put together

If you plug ANY cable TV straight from wall into ANY TV, it won't impress you!

Woot does mot stand behind what they sell. No deal if what you doesnt work and they walk away!

Woot does not stand behind what they sell. I bought a TV in September as a Christmas present for my daughter and it does not work. Woot said they would not stand behind it because 90 days was up. Early shoppers beware. You can get better deals on bradsdeals.com. Woot has lost a very good customer

From personal experience with Woot over the past couple of years I can honestly say that this statement could not be further from the truth! Any time I have had an issue WOOT was there to take care of me. In fact I just had a return of a defective tablet and they were on it. Sent me a label, I sent it back and they refunded me on the spot!

By the way, ever heard of spell check? Might want to check it out.... Just sayin'

I don't see any mention of 3D glasses bundled with the TV. Does anyone have any information on whether it comes with glasses or not?

I can't find where it says they do or don't but on Hisense website it doesn't list it with the glasses but gives you a link to buy them.

Anyone else curious what is being shown in the TV picture on the homepage? It's not your typical stock image! Easter egg maybe?

The speakers on this television (I own the 42" version) are horrible: they're tinny and weak. I tried using the ARC (audio return channel) feature using the HDMI cord to my blu-ray player's surround-sound audio only to discover this television is incompatible with most surround-sound systems... so be warned, you'll need to find another way of supporting decent audio.

I bought a Hisense 40" 1080p LCD HDTV with 3 HDMI back in July. When I received it the remote control only worked a few times, now it does not work at all. There is also a glitch when switching between VGA input and TV, it causing some weird "fuzing" issue.

I believe this is the user manual for the TV:
http://hisense-usa.com/support/manuals/K316_User_Manual.pdf

I wasn't sure if the dimensions are correct, but they may be. I know my 42" 3D TV from another manufacturer ends up being near 42" wide once you add the bezel.

Indeed -- Rock Band works great on this TV.

So I could plug my ipad to this and my Bose via cables? Thinking of using he direct tv ap off my ipad and plug to the tv so I don't have to run a cable line through the attic.

Does anyone know if these TVs are HDMI CEC capable?

I'm a little dubious of the claim of converting 2D to 3D in real time. How would the TV know where in Z space an object is? How would it know the depth of field? Does anyone know how or if this works? Someone should have explained this feature to James Cameron before he spent millions having Titanic converted to 3D.
Like I said I have serious doubts on this claim. Can someone please comment on if and how this works?

I got one of these last time on Woot, and it didn't come with the screws for the mount. Does anyone know the dimensions of the screws it is supposed to come with?

That TV is only 60Hz, not 120, and pretty sure it has a lower contrast ratio. The TV you linked is older technology. The models offered here and that one compare about as well as peaches and kiwi.

How do you like it?
I saw the 50" when i bought my 42"

It's a dang good price for the size T.v and options, Does it have an Optical plug on it?
