Awsome Retro design, crisp picture, very good sound system!
on December 6, 2014
UPDATE 10/6/2016 : Its been like what, 2 years since I bought this little red TV and its still going strong. Cant say the same for the remote. Two things come to mind though...
1. WHY HAS THIS AWESOME TV BEEN DISCONTINUED?!?!
2. The price has shot through the roof for the remaining units, so sadly if mine bites the dust I will not be able to get another one.... such is life I guess
vvvvvv----Original review below---- vvvvvv
My first impression when turning it on was "HOLY CRAP!!!". I was not expecting it to pack such a potent sound system, within moments of popping in Destiny on my Xbox One this TV surprised me with its sound system, literally every thing on the table vibrated and shook around when the Destiny title screen came on.
Now the picture is not the best out of the box, its actually to my eyes a little washed out, but if you fine tune the picture in the very intuitive system menu and knock the brightness back a few notches it becomes very crisp, crisper than my brothers 32 inch Vizio.
My settings were 52 Contrast, 49 Brightness, 12 Sharpness, everything else was left alone.
The TV does in fact pack a Potent 2.1 Sound System with YAMAHA amplifier chips in it so there is no need for a sound bar. Also Fun Fact , the carry handle on the back of the TV set is also the subwoofers Bass-Reflex Port. I just didnt belive the claims on the box because a lot of manufacturers tend to lie hence why I was so surprised.
The sound is also kinda hollow sounding out of the box so you do have to tailor the Bass and Treble contols to your tastes, I personally like the Bass at 100 and the Treble at 84 with surround enabled.
(Note on the surround switch FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY LEAVE IT ON!!! by turning it off it makes the TV sound like the worst thing in the world, the bass is shut off and the sound becomes nasally and horrid.)
I Impulse bought this set on the Retro look alone and ,let me tell you, it looks better in person. The shiny red paint job, the big silver power knob, the chrome feet just everything is awesome about this TV set and the looks alone cure all the little nitpicks I stated above. This TV to me deserves its 5 stars!
(EDIT: Included the settings I have on the TV)
