Advance Sharpness Control
Maintains overall picture quality by providing consistent, balanced color levels to control shades of gradation in dark or bright image scenes. Virtually eliminates jagged edges from traditional interlaced video formats by creating refined edges around the objects on the screen. Advanced CTI / LTI algorithm improves color shifts and minimizes any type of shadowing or ghosting effects and increases sharpness and detail of pictures.

Reduces motion pattern noises without blurring an image especially when watching regular OTA (Over The Air) television broadcasts and low S/N ratio video signal. Extends certain "gray levels" to black within a picture to define details lost. Analyzes and limits the amplitude of white frequencies, that can distort images resulting in a faded or washed-out appearance during bright scenes.

I just bought this model for a spare bedroom tv.When I first hooked it up strictly through the cable tv cable, the picture was grainy. I then hooked it up through component cables into Time Warner's HD cable box. The picture is awesome! Great contrast, dark blacks, no artifacts. It truly looks like you are looking out a window when viewing HD channels. Standard definition channels look fine, also. The remote is a little quirky, but I found an RCA code that worked with the cable box remote. I mounted it on the wall using a Premier tilt/pan mount, but the stand mount that is included is also sturdy and good quality.What a great tv for the price!

I wanted to rave about this monitor as much as most other folks on this site, but I must say, I was not impressed with the Olevia when I first took it out of the box, connected it, and turned on the TV. I kept checking the sound on every channel to see if it said mono, because it sure didn't sound like stereo to me. I went through both manuals, trying to find some adjustment I could make to improve the picture and the sound. I even went out and bought the suggested S video cable, but I couldn't see any difference in the picture once I plugged it in.

But all that changed as soon as I popped in my Batman Begins DVD.

Wow. This monitor is the bomb. The sound is indeed stereo with rich tones and good separation. The picture is great with fantastic resolution, more than I hoped for.

I wish that the print in the user's manual were actually large enough for me to read with my 40+ year old eyes and that the onscreen menu were easier to maneuver. But it's clear to me that this thing was designed for watching DVDs in widescreen and at that, it absolutely excels. TV people look a bit squat and the sound is more like flat mono than stereo. Who needs television anyway? If you use this equipment for watching DVDs only, it will be well worth the price you paid for it. I have no complaints with it now.

I just purchased the same brand and size tv but I puchased Model #LT26HVX for the same price. I read many reviews before purchasing and the HVX has had many improvements. The aspect ratio was improved and it was upgraded with the Philips LCD. Check the differences before you purchase. Except for the remote controls sleep timer function, I would rate mine a 5. I am writing this review because so many have helped me in my prior purchases that I would like to return the favor. When you make a purchase on any item, please write a review to help others.

I can't believe how totally awesome this monitor looks! The brightness and total image clarity are outstanding, and I haven't even used it as an HDTV yet! I am using it to replace a 19" LCD monitor. I can connect two pc's to this unit (or the same one twice). I have a DVD player, PS2, and computer connected to it. It is just simply amazing. The menus are easy to navigate once you learn that right arrow = select or enter.

I plan on adding pictures later. Personally, I would prefer detachable or no speakers.

As for people who say game play isn't great on LCD Monitors, they should buy this and then say that.

I bought this TV for my bedroom. The picture quality in HDTV is excellent. I use comcast HD and have no complaints. I bought this TV in June. Olevia customer service was very good. They tracted my rebate and I got it within the 10 weeks. I would say for the money this is a great deal!!

First of all, this is probably a good "value" considering it's currently low price point ($699-$799 + Rebates), and it has a decent array of inputs, and it comes right out of the box ready to go (stand is already attached). but that's where it all comes to a subtle stop.

I'll explain. After a lightning storm took out a 5 year old analog 32" 'square' TV, i said "yep, it's time for another widescreen HDTV" . We own a 55" Hitachi Ultravision Projection and it has awesome written all over it. Maybe I set my expectation a little high on the LCD, even though I never expected an LCD to look near as good as the Hitachi.

My direction was pointing to CRT (conventional picture tube) Widescreens. 30" from Sony (KVH-30hs420), Panasonic (Tau), Toshiba (30hf85) and Philips (30pw911od). Where this is where I wish I hand ended up, instead of began

LCD are incapable of reproducing images as clear as CRT's . period.

there's just something about LCD's that have always bugged me. the Black's are never 'black' , action creates artifacting (blocks of pixels), graphic and text looks overprocessed. This Olevia has some of those (but not all) and a few of its own)

Pros and Cons

------------

Pros :

Nice footprint

30 lbs - easily mountable on a wall

Inputs for days : VGA / DVI / Component x2 / S-Video x 2 / Composite x 2

Clean and usable interface

the new IDEA technology works ... sorta

HD broadcasts look great but not awesome

hooked up a Dell laptop via VGA and it looked real nice, but....
