4 out of 5 eggsSO. MANY. INPUTS.

Pros: This TV served me decently well for almost a year. Good size for a small room, and a cheap introduction to HD for those who haven't made the leap yet. Even on a budget display, the difference between SD and HD is night and day.

Best part is the inputs. 3 HDMI, 2 Component, 2 Composite, S-Video, and a VGA?! If you have a lot of different devices, especially if the connections are nice and varied, then this TV's input selection will put a smile on your face. Gamers like myself who indulge in both modern and retro games will appreciate not having to mess with cables every single time we want to play something on a different system.

Cons: Picture and speaker quality are about what you'd expect from a cheap TV. Not for people who can't stand lowering their standards. Also not for people who like using headphones to watch TV, because, in spite of the plethora of other connections available to you, there's no 3.5mm jack, so you'd have to spend extra to get a converter to use in the Coax plug... if that even works, which I don't know because I didn't try it myself.

Other Thoughts: Most of the rating comes from the fact that, in spite of being a refurb that only cost me a single Benjamin, the unit didn't die 3 days after the return period expired. And it still works, I'm just not using it myself anymore since I just upgraded to a bigger set. My brother has it now. It's been about 10 1/2 months since I bought it, so we'll see long it lasts with him.

3 out of 5 eggsHow to Fix

Pros: -Cheap (Got it for $100)
-Solid picture/sound

Cons: Internet is rampant with people complaining "set-up screen keeps popping up" errors. I rolled the dice and bought it, figuring I was mostly safe. Turns out I was wrong, and let me tell you there is NOTHING more frustrating than having to turn your TV off then on every 15 minutes or every time you flip 2-3 Channels. Spending $30 to mail it to Seiki to fix is a non-option.

Other Thoughts: On the Website: http://www.seikidigital.com/support/downloads.php#firmware

There is no firmware update for the 26" LCD (this model). I was about ready to return this TV since no one on the internet had a solution, and kmart is litered with these problems as well.

If you go to the above website and download the 22" LCD firmware, it WILL work in fixing this problem. From what I can tell you just lose some inputs (3rd HDMI, 2nd component) basically anything that isn't on the 22". But it gets rid of the crippling bug and lets you use your TV, which $ for $ is a great deal.

1 out of 5 eggsProblems

Pros: Picture Sound Price

Cons: Has an issue with menu screen poping up. Called tech support and I was told there is no cure and there will not be, return it to the seller. Being hard headed I thought I'd try something, I down loaded the filmware for the 22" and installed it. It worked! Only problem any features or componets the 22" don't have that the 26" has will be lost ( such as the 26" has 3 HMDI and the 22" has 2 HMDI so I lost # 3. )

Other Thoughts: Be nice if SEIKI would write new filmware for it.

1 out of 5 eggsSeiki SC 261FS LCD TV Problems

Pros: Nice picture, easy setup.

Cons: I had to get a replacement under the 30 day limited replacement warranty from Newegg and had the same problem again on the first day of use. The scan channel menu pops up intermittently but it will disappear when you click the OK button. However, after a few hours the Setup Wizard will also pop up (usually when changing channels) and will only go away if you follow the whole setup process or turn the tv off and then back on. This is a well known Seiki problem (check out the reviews from other sellers online) and a discussion with the manufacturer revealed that this particular model, unlike all their other models, cannot be fixed with their firmware download. It can only be fixed with shipping (at your expense) to them. Both times I received the set it came without the warranty card or the HDMI cable. Newegg is sending a third one but now it will arrive beyond the 30 day replacement warranty. They did, however, say that they would work with me if the third one is defective.

Other Thoughts: The remote is a bit awkward with small channel and volume buttons (can't do it by touch). Newegg has been very helpful so far.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice TV

Pros: Very nice TV for the price, great looking picture. Sounds good nice remote. On screen menu easy to use. Good buy for a small room or model train room were i have it, to show railroad videos or watch TV.

Cons: Only have one Con three stuck red pixels. Full screen TV viewing fine you don't notice them, but For the price you cant go wrong. I still give it a five star rating for price and value.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat tv great price

Pros: It is refurbished. it works. got it for very low price. will make a great bedroom/second gaming monitor

Cons: none yet. sound but there is no such thing as good sound on a flat screen tv

Other Thoughts: 129, buy it its cheaper than some 22-24" monitors. i really dont see a huge difference in 720 vs 1080. most cable tv is only 720 anyway. plus this is only 26" not 50"

4 out of 5 eggsNice for the price

Pros: Price, sound

Cons: one or two dead pixels

Other Thoughts: You really cant beat this tv for the price. As noted in the "cons" it did have one or two dead pixels. They are not noticeable in normal tv use. It has good sound for a tv of this size.
