Customer Review

on January 30, 2010
The TV's picture quality is excellent. And the tuner is excellent - actually pulling in a channel I didn't even know existed before. The sound quality is also nice.

I have 2 complaints (and if I'm missing something, please respond and let me know):

*There are about 50 ways to plug things *into* this tv, but there appears to be a single audio-out option - Optical out.

I have an older but perfectly adequate Sony stereo receiver with nice speakers and a powered subwoofer. It'd be really nice to run the audio from this TV into my stereo, but, unbelievably to me, there is only one way to do this: using an optical out cable. My stereo does not have an optical-in option.

So my 12 year old 19" TV had more options than this. I guess I'll never watch a movie again in surround sound with decent bass unless I manage to hook my DVD player up to my stereo directly. If I want audio from regular TV to come out of my stereo - totally out of luck.

I just can't believe they'd skip a simple RCA-cable audio-out.

*Complaint 2: With our $10 digital converter box we could see a program description and a "What's next" description as well, describing both how long the current show is and what is next up.

This TV, with its many bells and whistles doesn't even display this. Our $10 converter box beats this TV on that point. I feel like I have to be missing something because I just can't believe it, but I've gone thru every option I can find and pressed every button on the remote in every combination I can think of and still can't get more than very basic channel information to display.
