Great TV for the bucks.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: RCA 32LB30RQD 32-Inch 720p 60Hz LCD HDTV/DVD Combo (Electronics)
Our 2 year old Sylvania 32" died on a Tuesday morning, I did some quick research on Amazon, liked the price and features of the RCA and ordered it. Being a Prime member, I added $3.95 to get it here in one day, and Wednesday morning, we were up and running - thanks Amazon! It was easy to run through the setup and tweak the color and sound, and both are great. I could have spent more and gotten a bigger or "better" set, but we don't notice any difference between the RCA and my brother's 55" 1080p, (though we probably would in a side by side comparison). Our bottom line is that we have a HDTV that we are happy with, and spent $1200 less.

You say the sound is great. Are you listening to it as a stand-alone, or do you have it connected to speakers?

Just the TV speakers. I am NOT an audiophile, but I do not have a tin ear either. I never think "I wish the sound was better", even when listening to music.

Thanks. I'm not that picky either, so it should suit me too.

CAN YOU CONNECT A VCR WITH THIS SET?
In reply to an earlier post on Dec 26, 2012, 3:33:56 PM PST
Yes, there is a set of jacks on the left side in back for a "component" hookup, and once hooked up (instructions come with the owner's manual), you can get to it using the "Input" button on the remote.

did you consider the led model 32b3orqd before purchasing this one?
if so why did you decide on the lcd?

Honestly, I looked at 32" sets that had built-in DVD players under $250 and bought the first one that was Prime eligible and had a great rating. I read the negative ratings, did not find anything that disturbed me, and went for it. Four months later, I'm still happy with it.

neglected to ask if you know what cables, jacks, etc. are needed to connect the vcr. I downloaded the owners manuel but cannot tell since do not know what comes with the set. i would like to order what is needed so when I get the set I canhook it up.

You will need a cable from the cable box if you have one, I used an HDMI. Check your VCR to see what kind of output jacks it uses, usually RCA plugs (red, white, and yellow) . If you do not have a box, you can plug the black coax cable directly in to the set.
