Welcome to a review of Emerson’s EM3 Series, 1080p 60Hz LCD HDTV. The Emerson EM3 series LCD HDTV can be mounted on the wall for easy placement in any room. With a brilliant 1080p full HD resolution, the Emerson EM3 series offers a premium viewing experience.

The EM3 features a built-in tuner so you can watch digital broadcasts and HDTV programs whenever available. The 1080p and 60Hz are winning features, along with having 3 HDMI input locations, but the top winning feature is that you can purchase a 50” Class size, 1080p LCD HDTV, for an awesomely low price. This is the major selling point for the EM3. Consumer reviews are stating that they have waited in long lines for the opportunity to own this model. The 39” Class size available is also at a very low, affordable price. This series is not without any issues, some being adequate sound or average picture quality, but because it is such a cost saver, it is definitely a people pleaser. The separate purchase of a sound bar, receiver or home theater system will enhance the sound quality to create the home viewing experience you are looking for.

Welcome to a review of the Onkyo AVX-290 5.1-Channel Home Theater Package. This home theater package is in the entry level range as far as price, and doesn’t have all the features of higher end systems but makes up for it in performance. It is designed primarily for small to medium sized rooms. Instructions in the manual are easy to follow, with speaker cables that are color coded and an FM tuner that is easy to setup. This system comes with 4 HDMI inputs to connect your equipment such as a blu-ray player, cable/satellite box, gaming console, or PC.

The remote control that comes with the AVX-290 HT system is part# RC-762M. Some users have commented that the remote control is hard to program but with the help of Onkyo support, any problems are easily solved.

Westinghouse UW32S3PW 32” Class 720p 60Hz LED HDTV


• 720p high definition resolution
• Ultra thin design
• 100,000:1 Dynamic contrast ratio
• 176 degree vertical and horizontal angles
• Parental control
• Built-in digital tuner
• PC connectivity
• Energy efficient


RATING: 4.2 out of 5 stars

Welcome to a review of the Westinghouse UW32S3PW 32” Class 720p 60Hz LED HDTV. This model is modern and sleek with its ultra slim design. This 32” is perfect for any wall or stand and is easy to mount because of its light weight. The set-up is easy however some consumers are not satisfied that the user manual comes in the form of a CD instead of an actual printed copy. This can be problematic for users with no computer or little knowledge of computers and how to read and navigate a document on CD.

The UW32S3PW comes equipped with only one button on the front, the on/off switch. For those people who often displace or lose their remote control, this can be an annoyance. Although this model’s resolution is only 720p, unless you get up very close can you tell that it is not 1080p. The picture quality is excellent, delivering brilliant clear, crisp images whether you are watching movies, playing a game, or have your PC connected to use as a monitor. Its wide vertical and horizontal angles allow anyone in the room to view with ease, no matter where they are seated.

The remote control that comes with this model is part number RMT-22. It has been noted that at times the remote control is slow to respond and needs to be positioned directly in front of the TV to work.

The biggest complaint about this model, as is with other ultra slim flat screen models, is the sound quality. Users have said that the sound is often muffled and sounds tinny, as though coming from a tin cup. For many, the sound quality is adequate, but for those who desire a more enhanced and high-end sound there is an easy solution. Simply attach a sound bar, speakers or a good quality sound system and you will be ready to experience a true theater-like experience with sharp, crisp images that are hard to beat for the low price.

Welcome to a review of Sanyo’s FVM-82 series, 1080p 60Hz LCD HDTV. The Sanyo FVM-82 LCD HDTV comes in two sizes, 39” and 50” class, with a native resolution of 1920×1080 (1080p). This series has conventional fluorescent backlighting. Many new TVs now have a higher frame rate that’s designed to reduce the motion blur, a shortcoming of LCD technology.

There are 3 HD-capable inputs: 2 HDMI and 1 component-video, which can also be used as composite-video. It also has a USB port, which may allow you to plug in a thumb drive or memory card reader so you can play the stored photos, videos, and music on the TV.
The fully functional remote control for this series is part number GXBM and will navigate through all the feature and menu options.

The Sanyo FVM-82 has a stylish, contemporary look and the screen has a near matte finish. The bezel framing the screen is gloss black, making it a nice addition to any room.

DENON DHT-391XP 5.1 Channel 650 watt HOME THEATER SYSTEM

• 650-Watts total system power (AVR-391 – 5 x 110-watts + 100-watt powered subwoofer)
• HDMI 1.4a Repeater Inputs (4) and Output (1) support 1080p/24, 3D Pass Through (All formats)
• Decodes Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus, and Dolby Digital Surround EX
• One cable connectivity from AVR-391 to your TV via HDMI (1.4a repeating technology)
• Compact and powerful


RATING: 3.9/5.0

Welcome to a review of the DENON DHT-391XP HOME THEATER SYSTEM. The overall sound quality on this device is fairly good. The subwoofer is also very powerful and responsive, without overpowering all of the audio. However, one issue about this model is the satellite speakers. It has been stated that the treble lacks a bit and even with the treble maxed out, it still feels like you are missing out on the clear high pitched sound effects. This device does provide quality mid tones, but in in the opinion of some, without crisp highs, therefore the overall sound suffers.

This model is built sturdy, looks great, and presents very good options, plus you will receive an easy to use remote control, part number RC-1149, that will get you through the setup and menu options with ease.

Some people have had a problem with the lack of inputs on the back of the receiver, however it has been found to be perfectly fine because all of the components can go into the TV first, with a single optical digital audio going out to the receiver. Overall this model is fairly solid but it does seem per some, that you need to work with this model a bit more to get it setup but once that is completed, the system is sound.

• Great subwoofer
• Compact and powerful

• Freezes up
• Manual is not helpful
