Company: ViewSonic


This is a fantastic company which was founded in 1987 with annual sales up to 4 million dollars which was a lot for a company at that time. But until today they have sales totalling up to an impressive 1 billion dollars. ViewSonic is a worldwide leader particularly in visual display products for the majority of the population today. I totally trust this company and their products are of great quality as is their customer service. If you want to find out more information about them and their products then feel free to go to http://www.viewsonic.com/

The screen is really quite big which was quite unexpected due to its incredibly low price. But the picture quality is just astounding and I couldn't have asked for much better from a low cost LCD television which looks stylish as well. The resolution and aspect ratio is great providing rich proportional images which display on the screen perfectly.

There is a 1 year warrantee if you need it but i doubt you will. It is quite a low weight for the TV but only because it is a flat screen LCD TV - and convenient because it will fit in those places in your home where one of those bulky TV sets just wouldn't have fitted.

~:∞:~:∞:~:∞:~:∞:~:∞:~ THE BUNDLE ~:∞:~:∞:~:∞:~:∞:~:∞:~


Well here's the bundle you get when you order this TV:


LCD TV Display
Stand
Power Cable
Remote Control with Batteries
RCA A/V Cable
Quick Start Guide
User Guide


I have always found that quick user guides are very helpful - it just means you can get your brand new TV set up and ready to start watching Movies and soaps as soon as you can! If you do ever have a problem with the TV, then first thing's first, make sure you check through the user manual on fixing and solving minor problems before you phone up the company and the guide is very helpful. This bundle is really quite simple and basic but is all the things you need. You won't need much more, I mean; they've already supplied batteries with the remote control and supplied a power cable. All you need to do once you have bought this LCD TV is sit back on your sofa, put your feet up and watch a movie.


The TV was no trouble at all to set up - The TV was on its stand and there was nothing else to do apart from plug the TV into the mains. Although it wasn't long before I bought the Wall mount kit which Is superb. It is a great accessory I recommend it, if you are buying this TV: The WALL MOUNT KIT - Model WMK-013 which will simply expand your display options and maximize space by mounting your LCD TV on a wall or cabinet. Fantastic!

~~Ultrabrite~~
This technology brings images to life, whether that's just watching movies or playing on your X box 360 but with this technology it means there is a clear picture with amazing vibrant and vivid colours.


~~Advanced Image Processing~~
With this, it give you a much clearer picture along with even with those darker images on the screen like when watching horror movies, you can identify the darker images because there is more clarity and detail there.


~~Plug and Play~~
You all probably want to know what this is and it is basically that you can plug in equipment such as DVDs, Laptops, camcorders or games consoles easily without having to install anything or configure anything on the TV. You are probably more familiar with using USB memory sticks in computer - well that's also plug and play in a way because you don't really have to install or configure anything because it works in almost every computer. You can buy DVD players and all sorts of things which are "Plug and play" and really make it much easier to do things. With this TV for example, it makes it easy for you if you want to switch from playing on your PS2 to your X box etc.


~~Watch TV and be on the Internet~~
This is a great feature in my opinion because you can watch TV and surf the internet or chat to your MSN messenger buddies online - all at the same time, and you can easily switch to full screen mode anytime you want. How often do you want to talk to friends, but they only come online when your favourite soap is on? Well here's how, just buy this LCD TV and it has the technology to make it possible.


~~Multiple Video and Audio Connection~~
This is pretty much self explanatory and you can link multiple components such as speakers and other hardware such as your Laptop, to this TV.


~~Surround Sound~~
The TV has an amazingly powerful 20 watt virtual surround sound to liven up your TV entertainment. Just what you need, particularly when watching those scary movies - really makes you jump!

This TV offers a great picture quality without a lot of fuss for only a little and affordable price of just £599.99. If you have a look at some more of ViewSonic's products, you will find that this is a smaller version of the N3760w model which is a 37 inch screen whereas this is a 32 inch screen. There is slight difference but more of a difference in the price. This LCD is affordable and delivers an above average performance and displays such vibrant colours just as well as I have seen other LCD TV's of some of the more popular leading brands such as Sony and Panasonic. A really stylish silver grey frame with a metallic edge to the eye, and great screen make this a brilliant TV - or more like a centre piece in your living room. The remote control is also great, and signals can reach up to 4.5 metres. Just like nay other remote and easy to use however you may find that the buttons are slightly too small.


The viewable area of the television measures 31.5 inches diagonally, which means that the frame doesn't take up that much room at all. When watching your DVD's it is great, and on that note, when watching DVD's the quality was generally good and the DVD player was easily plugged in to the TV. In my opinion, the TV did find difficulty when dealing with faster moving imagery with more motion, therefore the performance was still adequate but not totally brilliant as you would expect from other High Definition TV's. The TV lacks a menu option to control the noise reduction feature in order to determine its effectiveness. Overall the image quality is still great for its price.

~:∞:~:∞:~:∞:~:∞:~:∞:~ OVERALL ~:∞:~:∞:~:∞:~:∞:~:∞:~


Overall, this TV is reasonably large and its High Definition quality, together with its great resolution makes this TV one of the best for its price. It delivers a range of rich pictures and there are lots of things which you can do with this including playing games with your games console. Surf on the internet whilst watching the television; get the full experience of surround sound and more. But overall I would give this TV a rating of 7.5/10. =D

~:∞:~:∞:~:∞:~:∞:~:∞:~ PRICE ~:∞:~:∞:~:∞:~:∞:~:∞:~


The price is an astounding £599.99! This is the cheapest I have seen it and as you would all agree with me, I am sure, this is a real bargain and totally affordable. Save yourself, the trouble of buying a high definition LCD Flat screen TV from one of the leading more expensive brands, and buy this one.

~:∞:~:∞:~:∞:~:∞:~:∞:~ WHERE TO BUY ~:∞:~:∞:~:∞:~:∞:~:∞:~


Here are some online shops where you can buy this LCD TV from:


£599.99………… at http://www.savastore.com/productinfo/product.aspx?catalog_name=Savastore&product_id=10284809&pid=45&tid=292

  • silver40 published 26/07/2006
    I am looking to replace my TV with a 32" but I am holding back until I can afford one with a low response timeas the blurring of moving images might put me off. Great review. Dave
