This is NOT a widescreen TV, but a value at 4:3 HD
on December 31, 2003
I wanted a widescreen (16:9) HD 27 inch tube TV. A search for "widescreen HD 27 HDTV" on Amazon gave me this one, and the specs and price looked good. The photo looks sort of widescreen. IT IS NOT! This is a normal 4:3 TV, not the newer 16:9 widescreen format.
If you want a 4:3 screen, then this HD-capable TV is a true value. The soft-touch buttons on the front are classy, although scrolling through the screen inputs is a bit tedious. It has two component HD inputs, and four yellow composite video inputs, but only one s-video input, and that is on the side panel. Strange. And when you plug in a yellow composite video source into the side, it overrides one of the rear inputs.
I am exchanging this for the 26" Samsung 2670WHF widescreen HD-capable TV that actually has a widescreen.
