Great TV. Great price. I had never heard of UpStar previously, but, we were looking for a size down from a 55 inch monster in our 1 bedroom apartment. You can't beat it for less than 200 dollars. One issue is with color; it takes some tweaks to the color to not have the orange peel faces. But, otherwise, great and as expected.

Good picture, although ours came with a dead pixel right smack in the middle. Though not distracting enough to bother us for a return, I would imagine most would not be happy if this were common.

The specs are slightly misleading. Upstar's website lists this model as having a 1080p panel, and oddly enough the television does recognize the mode displaying a MODE:1080P when fed a 1080 signal. After much scrutiny, I've concluded It does in fact *not* support 1080p, it is actually compressed with terrible interpolation. It will, however, allow you to play back such a signal which has to be worth something!

I was hoping Amazon made a mistake listing this as 720p, but in the end I received what I paid for and am ultimately happy with the purchase at this price.

I really don't know what anyone happens to be complaining about. The only thing I found that matches another persons problem is that I got a dead pixel in the upper left corner of the screen, but other than that I get a great picture and use it as a monitor for my computer and the games I play look amazing on it.

I've been pleasantly surprised. The low price had me worried that it wouldn't work properly or the picture would be terrible but it works fine, and the picture seems good to me.

I grabbed two of these from another website when they were on sale for $149.97. I wanted them mainly to act as extra monitors for my Windows desktop.

According to my Nvidia video card, the native resolution is 1360x768, rather than the 1366x768 that is listed here. I don't think it's a huge issue, but we might as well be accurate.

As far as the extended desktop use goes, it's not great but it's decent. I knew I wasn't getting a super high def screen for $150. Basically I use the two TV screens for streaming MLB.tv and WatchESPN, while I use my existing monitor for tasks that require higher resolution. It's also handy to be able to keep a spreadsheet or pdf open for reference on each TV, while I write a report on the high-res monitor.

Setup was quite easy and there don't appear to be any hardware issues.

In summary - nothing special but for the price it's a pretty nice TV.

Great TV, nice picture and good sound. Only thing I did not like was I could not hook up the PS2 to it and could not get through to Upstar customer service and no call back after leaving a message. If all your devices are HD and use HDMI cable then this TV is great.

This tv is absolutely wonderful. Kind of surprised but I've had ut for a while and everything is great. Bought this so my son could play his PlayStation on. Picture is clear and sound is great! Definitely a must buy!!!

Well I took a chance & I was very nervous about ordering this tv, but I am certainly very pleased with everything about it so far. I have been enjoying it for quite a while and I have NO complaints. Before I bought this, I had asked several questions about the sound & speakers & maybe needing a sound bar, because I had worried about not being able to hear it well. That is NOT a problem. The sound from this tv is exceptional. I have never had the volume over 50% because it would probably blow my bedroom windows out. This is my 1st flat screen purchase & I just can't get over how beautifully clear & crisp the picture is. I still own a big "clunker" of a tv for out in the living room, but not for much longer. I'm thinking of getting the larger screen Upstar for there.
