RATING: 3.7 out of 5 stars

Welcome to a review of the Westinghouse DW50F1Y1 LED HDTV. Although this large screen TV offers only standard features, without all the bells and whistles of its more tech savvy counterparts, its performance is excellent, especially for the low price out of pocket. With 1080 resolution and a refresh rate of 120hz, you are in for a treat with its vibrant, crystal clear images, whether watching a movie, a sporting event or playing games. Its wide vertical and horizontal angles allow everyone in the room, no matter where seated, to watch with ease. If you would like to attach your PC to use the large screen as a monitor, you can do so with the 3 HDMI inputs available. Its ultra slim design and light weight allow for easy mounting. For the price, this model packs a powerful punch.

The remote used for this model is the RMT-24. It is a standard remote which is easy to use.

As with many ultra slim, flat screen models, high quality sound is sometimes compromised. For the average viewer the sound meets all requirements to enjoy watching movies, or playing games. However, for the user who requires a more high-tech, excellent quality sound, a sound system or speakers can be attached to achieve excellent sound.

PROS:
• Crystal clear images with brilliant colors
• 3 HDMI inputs
• Slim, modern design
• Easy set-up

CON:
• Average sound quality

• Dolby Digital Technology
• High efficiency liquid crystal display
• 2 HDMI inputs
• 1 USB port
• PicturePerfect Video Processor
• Sleep timer

REMOTE: 098003063100

RATING: 3.7 out of 5 stars

Welcome to a review of the Hitachi LE32V407 32 inch 1080p LED HDTV. This model is affordably priced and basic in its features. Its small screen size, based on the large screens that are so popular today, make it a good fit for smaller rooms like an office, bedroom or even a kitchen. Like most flat screen TVs, the LE32V407 is thin and stylish, with clean lines. The set-up is easy and quick with custom input labels. Equipped with a clear anti-glare screen, it helps to reduce glare created from any light source in a room while watching TV. Fitted with 2 HDMI inputs, a Blu-ray player, cable/satellite box, gaming console or other HDMI compatible equipment can be connected. Unfortunately, an HDMI cable is not included.

The remote control part number for this model is 098003063100 and is a standard TV remote.

Because the resolution is 1080p, you will experience picture quality that is clear, and crisp, with vibrant, dynamic colors and images that are so realistic, you will feel like you are one with the picture. Being that the refresh rate for this model is 60Hz, it is probably not the best choice of TV for gaming enthusiasts since higher refresh rates render less motion blur, necessary for excellent, fast action game playing. Fitted with 2 speakers at 10 watts each and Dolby Digital Technology, the sound quality is pretty good, however, many users are looking for theater-like sound therefore add a soundbar or receiver to enhance the sound quality. If you are looking for a smart TV with the latest technology, this is not the TV for you.

PROS:
• Inexpensive
• High definition resolution

SONY – R450A SERIES 1080p 60Hz LED HDTV

FEATURES:
• Brilliant Full HD 1080p picture quality
• Direct LED for a bright picture and slim design
• Smooth movement with Motion flow XR 120
• 2 full-range 8W speakers
• 2 HDMI ports

STANDARD REMOTE: RM-YD092

RATING: 4.7/5

Welcome to the review of Sony’s R450A Series 1080p 60Hz LED HDTV. This Sony R450A series presents your favorite TV shows, movies and more in crystal-clear high-definition. Two full-range 8W speakers produce robust, dynamic sound to add to your home entertainment experience.
The TV’s sleek finish and mirrored front bar create a nice aesthetic once mounted. Though not exceptionally thin by today’s standards, the R450A does well for a backlit LED TV. Like many entry-level models, this series does not rotate on its stand. The thin plastic stand itself seems a bit flimsy, and the fact that it is attached to the TV by only two screws doesn’t exactly scream quality.

The remote control for the R450A series is part number RM-YD092.

One especially notable feature is the TV’s use of Sony’s MotionFlow Technology for frame interpolation and image blur reduction to lower jittering, and in theory, make the 60Hz refresh rate seem more like 120 Hz.
There are many mixed reviews for this model. If you are in the market for buying a new TV, always check out the resources for the best quality and the right TV to fit your needs.

PROS:
• Brilliant colors
• Light weight, attractive design
• Packed with features
• Renders sports and fast-paced video well

CONS:
• Extremely narrow viewing axis
• Unnecessarily confusing options
• Fixed Motion smoothing feature creates soap opera effect on films
