TFT display, poor sound but good!,
This review is from: Coby TFTV3925 39-Inch 1080p 60Hz LCD HDTV (Black) (Electronics)
This screen display isn't going to win any awards, but at this price is worth it!! The sound sucks but if you have your own sound system then it won't matter. Its a tft display so don't expect a high gloss display. It also has a poor viewing angle but head on it looks wonderful. Dark blacks rich color when viewed head on. It's once again TFT so it has a limited viewing angle but when hooked up to a computer via hdmi it makes a wonderful 1080 display. Text is clearly defined being tft (the perk).
So to recap. Bad sound, limited viewing angle. Good colors and blacks, nice design, large screen, great as a computer monitor with solid text reproduction. For the sub 300 price its hard to beat!
4/27/13 - Still running strong with lots of use.
10/29/2013 - Still running strong with lots of use.
4/12/2015 - still running strong with lots of use, no fading of colors, and works like new. what a bargain!

Because everyone has a different set of requirements for their television sets. I have a surround sound system hooked up to my tv and could care less about the sub par speakers. I watch my TV from a limited viewing angle so I also don't care about that. However I do use the TV as a second monitor for my computer, so the lack of a glossy screen and the use of TFT is actually a benefit to me. Furthermore it has some of the riches colors and darkest blacks I've seen on a sub $800 screen.
So for me the things that count are there. Screen that produces rich colors/blacks, shows text clearly, good size, and amazing price.

Good Review Ron. Not every HDTV can be used as a monitor, but since this TV started selling here on Amazon in april of 2012, its a relatively NEW TV alot of others are from a year or 2 ago, and we know almost all electronics are outdated after 6 months. Most of the older TVs Ive been tracking cant be used as a PC monitor.

Yes it seems some of the newer TVs have removed VGA inputs as well. However almost all new computers support HDMI or DVI. Which are actually one and the same, HDMI however allows for HDCP copyright coding and surround audio. The video is identical though, which is why you can get a DVI to HDMI adapter very cheaply from Amazon and make you computers DVI connection work with any TV.
To answer Robert's question, yes it comes with a stand.

Yes it does come with a TV stand and has standard holes for mounting as well.
