Videophiles with an eye for convenience will want to take note of Sylvania's compact 6615LE LCD television. The 15-inch set offers compatibility with progressive-scan 480p video signals (such as those from select DVD players and satellite receivers) as well as full 1080i high-definition TV signals from DTV set-top boxes. Now you can enjoy great picture quality in your kitchen, bedroom, or office without sacrificing a whole wall to a bulky TV or monitor.
The 6615LE offers a slim, 3.3-inch profile and an internal NTSC tuner for convenient broadcast-television viewing with features like auto channel setup, V-Chip parental controls, SAP (second audio program), and closed-caption decoding. Image quality benefits from a 3-line digital comb filter (which removes blurred edges between colors and reduces "dot crawl") alongside the set's native high brightness (500 candles/square meter), a high contrast ratio (500:1), and wide (170 x 155-degrees) viewing angles.
The main benefits of an LCD screen include the crystal clarity of images and their extremely compact form factor. The space-saving design of the 6615LE enables you to view television in any room of your home. And like all LCDs, this unit is immune to the distortion and negative color balances one may encounter when using a conventional CRT television near fluorescent lighting or speaker systems.
Two elliptical speakers radiate stereo sound from either side of the screen. For connections, you get 1 composite-video input for your DVD player, VCR, or other audio/video device, 1 S-video input, and a set of component-video inputs for your progressive-scan DVD player or DTV set-top box.
The onboard 181-channel tuner offers PLL frequency-synthesized tuning, picture controls (contrast, brightness, color, tint), and you can access its handy onscreen menu from the TV's front panel or from the supplied full-function remote control. Auto sleep timer/power off saves energy after a preset period of inactivity, while resume power-on will recall the set's power state following a brief power outage. The 6615LE is Energy Star-compliant.
