RATING: 4.2 out of 5 stars

Welcome to a review of the Westinghouse T7HW LED HDTV Series. If you are looking for a basic, affordable, good quality HDTV to purchase, this is the series for you. What it lacks for in extra features, it makes up for in picture quality. The contemporary, slim design fits well in any space and is easily mountable on a wall due to its light weight. Some buyers have remarked that the TV has no buttons on the front except for the on/off switch, meaning the remote control is necessary to watch TV and change channels or set preferences. A vast majority of flat panel TVs in this day and age however are made the same way.

The setup is easy and the 2 HDMI inputs allow for hooking up of several devices including gaming consoles, sound systems, and a computer. There are also headphone jacks for your convenience. With wide horizontal and vertical angles, you can enjoy remarkable picture quality from any area in the room. This series offers stunning images and brilliant, vivid colors with lots of details. For the low price, what more could you want?

The remote that comes with this series is the RMT-22. It is a standard, basic model and easy to use. The sound quality for this series, as with many slim, flat screen TVs, is ordinary. Some users have commented that a muffled/hollow sound comes out from the speakers. Others are content with the sound and have no issues. If you are particular about high-end sound and want a “surround sound” type of experience when you watch movies or play games, there is a simple solution. By attaching a sound bar, good quality speakers or a sound system to the TV, you will be able to achieve superior sound quality and enjoy your new TV.

• Low, bargain price
• Crystal clear images and brilliant, vibrant colors
• Wide vertical and horizontal angles
• Easy set-up

• Average sound quality
• No internet connectivity

Welcome to a review of Emerson’s EM3F Series, (1080p 40”, 720p 32”), 60Hz LCD HDTV. The Emerson 40” EM3F features 1080p HD while the 32” EM3F has 720p HD and both come equipped with a 60Hz refresh rate. You can connect up to two HD devices via the provided HDMI ports

There is a fully functional remote control that comes with the EM3F series, part number NH001UD. This remote is easy to use as you complete your setup and navigate through the menu options.

The EM3F series does not have a lot of bells and whistles, but what it does have works for the avid TV watcher. The sound quality is just adequate but that is typical for flat screen TVs in general. Consumers love the price point from Emerson and this series is no exception.

REMOTE: TV-5620-121


Welcome to a review of the LE32F2220 LED HDTV. The first thing you will notice about this TV is its slim and sleek design, perfect for today’s contemporary home. The ports are all located on the back, but easily accessible. As far as hardware, it comes with the TV-5620-121 full function remote control which is easy to use.

Picture quality is good but not excellent. If you want a full-blown theater experience, you’ll be disappointed. If you want to just enjoy a movie with some friends, you’ll be fine. This model supports colors very well, very bright and vivid, but it does not support darks nearly as well. It has been stated that the sound quality is below average. It has been suggested that with the addition of a sound bar, the sound quality can be greatly enhanced. Consumers have also noted that the audio is delayed a bit when you first turn it on.

Overall this model is very basic and rather average in terms of performance. However, due to its relatively inexpensive price, it is a decent purchase despite its faults. There are many other TV’s that have better picture quality, but this model by Haier is totally acceptable within this budget range per consumer reviews.

Welcome to a review of the Dynex DX-60D260A13 LED HDTV. This TV has brilliant picture quality with no known motion blur. While the speakers are adequate, as with many flat panel TVs, the quality could be better.

The features of this model are basic, with no Smart TV features. With the use of your NS-RC03A-13 remote control, the menus and features are easy to use and navigate. The remote control helps you to personalize the most important features for your use and deliver the performance you desire with your HDTV.

In summary, if you are looking for a big-screen TV for watching movies and TV, that can deliver excellent picture quality with vibrant colors and clarity, at a great price, this TV is a good choice. An easily recommendable TV set.

Welcome to a review of Hisense’s K610 Series, 1080p 120Hz SMART LED HDTV. With 1080p full high definition resolution and 120Hz refresh rate, the images on the Hisense K610 series are so life-like that some say it feels like you’re really there. The 1,080 horizontal lines create stunning details and crystal-clear, vibrant colors to create a brilliantly realistic picture.

With built-in WiFi and 4 HDMI inputs, you can create the entertainment experience “your way”. Along with this series comes a fully functional remote control, part number EN-33922A. This remote control will guide you through the setup process and menu options.

The K610 series is a nice-looking HDTV. The cabinet measures 2.3 inches thick and sports very thin glossy black bezels with silvery trim. The bottom bezel contains a Hisense logo and a remote sensor, and there are seven function buttons on the right side of the cabinet. The 49.8-pound cabinet sits atop a sturdy glossy black rectangular stand that lets you swivel the panel, but you can hang the TV on a wall with an optional mounting kit.

The K610 series is considered a budget HDTV but not a bare-bones model either. The full HD (1,920 by 1,080) panel has a 120Hz refresh rate and uses LED backlighting, and the TV offers wired and wireless networking as well as a decent selection of Web apps. Some have noted, however, that the K610 performs like a budget set; with the color quality being sketchy, the background noise apparent, and shadow detail mediocre.

• Affordable
• Built-in Wi-Fi
• Web apps included
• Good viewing angles

• Oversaturated blues
• Mediocre contrast ratio

REMOTE: TV-5620-121


Welcome to a review of the F2280 LED HDTV SERIES. This Energy Star Qualified LED HDTV series delivers a sharp, clear picture and vibrant colors and dynamic audio in the form of simulated surround sound. Multiple AV inputs including 2 HDMI and 1 Component input make it easier than ever to connect a variety of high definition devices, like a cable or satellite box, Blu-ray player, or game console. This model is a perfect addition to your home theater.

It has been mentioned that the TV menu is overly simplistic but easy to control with the remote control that comes with this series, part number TV-5620-121. There has been one main concern and issue with this model – that there is no way to turn off the overscan. There is an option in the menus to “update software”, which is assumed to update the TV menu but upon research does not show that it exists. This can be a significant issue with some but not all

Overall, the F2280 series is decent buy and as mentioned before, the picture quality is great for the price and the ports all function properly.

• Picture quality
• Easy to use

• Overly simple menu
• Overscan cannot be turned off

• Closed Caption Decoder
• Trilingual On-Screen Display (English/Spanish/French)

RATING: 4.0/5.0

Welcome to a review of Emerson’s EM4 Series, 1080p 60Hz LED HDTV. The Emerson EM4 Series 1080p 60Hz HDTV delivers a superior-quality picture. It supports full HD 1080p resolution with a true widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio for your viewing pleasure. This series has wide viewing angles to enable you to watch from any corner of your room. The 60Hz refresh rate will help with motion judders, not as well as a 120Hz, but it does the job.

This wall-mountable LED HDTV has a built-in digital tuner to stream your favorite digital broadcasts, including HDTV programs. HD devices can be connected via the convenient 3 HDMI ports.

The EM4 does not have all the tech savvy features, but it does have some nice features that most expect from their TV. A JPEG photo viewer is a great feature that will allow you to share your memories for all to see. The convenience of the sleep timer is becoming a standard on many models today. All you do is set the allotted time and let the TV do the rest. You can work all the features from the menu options while using the fully functional remote control that comes with this model, part number NH303UD. This is an easy to use remote control.

Another plus point and now becoming an important and regular feature on most TVs is the Energy Star-rating, meaning that it consumes less power and is cost efficient. The biggest issue that the EM4 series seems to be having is longevity. It seems that there is a percentage of consumer returns due to the TVs not working, something Emerson needs to check out.
