5 out of 5 eggsIncredible!!!

Pros: Very easy to assemble. Picture is great right out of the box. Lightweight, simple to use.

Cons: I believe it has 60hz refresh rate so for the sports minded folks who are looking to decrease lag in the picture this TV might fall a bit short. I could care less about sports so for me... it's a great buy.

Other Thoughts: I found myself a bit nervous about purchasing this TV. I wasn't familiar with the brand. However, research from reviews and research on the company gave me the confidence to order. I am VERY pleased with this purchase.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat TVs

Pros: This is the best I have found for the price. I just purchased 4 and have installed them in a clients house and they love the clear, clean quality. The internal speakers sound great and have a wide range.

Cons: Have not found any yet.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat value

Pros: Great picture quality, low-profile bezel, plenty of connectors to hook up whatever you need. Great price for a solid product.

Cons: Two small things that irk me. One, the power cable is hardwired to the unit. That should really be modular. The second is, the 3 HDMI connectors are too close to each other. If you're using something like a Chromecast, there's not enough space to use all 3.

Other Thoughts: This is a great quality television. It does not support some of the more advanced options (4k, 3D, etc.), but at this price point you shouldn't be looking for those things. If you're looking for a reasonably-priced unit with great picture quality for watching TV, movies, etc., or playing video games then this is a solid purchase.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Price and appearance for sure

Cons: Very quiet even turned all the way up
Can't seem to get rid of the grainy background in darker scenes

Other Thoughts: I bought this TV about a year ago and absolutely love it. It has been used almost daily since then with no problems what so ever. That said, it's not perfect so if you want a performance oriented TV go spend two or three times the amount on something else. Mine has a grainy background in darker scenes that my LG Plasma it replaced did not have. It's barely noticeable and I didn't even notice until my TV snob friend pointed it out.

My only other note is that if you have a noisy house (roommates) be prepared to always run your sound system and don't even bother with the TV speakers because they are too quiet to hear.
Both of these issues don't warrant removing an egg in my opinion because the price is just that good.

5 out of 5 eggsBest. Television. Ever.

Pros: Low cost without being cheap, solid HDTV performance, image and colors look amazing, because it's a "dumb" TV, nothing to upgrade--plug your toys into it and it just works! Glass stand looks stunning and is very sturdy if you don't plan to move a 50" TV between rooms often. Works great with Roku 3, over-the-air HD channels via antenna and connecting LG cellphone to it to play games with a Bluetooth controller (if you plan to connect your cellphone to any TV via HDMI, make sure you have the right add on equipment and qualitycabling).

Cons: Non-modular power cord (Changhong could have do better than that admittedly), Antenna HDTV channel identifier does not scroll among channels to allow you to surf while staying with the channel you're on. Only 3 HDMI ports (but there is one composite/analog jack as well), need to use a "-" button to dial in HDTV antenna subchannels. Other than the power cord, these are really nitpicks.

One thing: Brightness out of the box is set to "Diety" brightness, so be sure to turn that down if you want your eyes to work as they normally would.

Other Thoughts: Many people bashed this TV early on simply because of the name and its mainland China origin. Changhong has been a household name in China and the South Pacific for many years and probably made the panels in many of your laptops and low price televisions. No, this TV is not a SONY/LG/Samsung so if you want all of the fancy marketing gimmicks that these manufactures use to sell TVs in brick and mortar stores, then pony up the extra $300 and buy a name brand TV. This is one man's opinion, but when I was watching Thursday night football, local OTA news and streaming old TV shows via Roku, I didn't have a single complaint about the deep of blacks, or whatever. I think this is a good TV, full stop. If your are a brand addict and a looking for a reformation, Changhong is here for you!

If, however, you are on a budget, own (or will buy) a streaming TV device, or plan to hook up your tablet/cellphone/laptop to it, or utilize a smart Bluray player, then this TV is the best deal in town. It truly is a perfect mix of form and function at a great price point. Newegg runs sales on this TV every so often so wait until the $350 price point to buy it. I got mine with 6 free HDMI cables and a $40 rebate card, all with free shipping and no sales tax.

If you are planning to "cut the cord," spend a little time to research a good antenna that is rated to receive channels based on your distance from the broadcasting tower(s). Remember: there is not such thing as an "HD Antenna," just be sure that whatever you buy has both VHF and UHF capabilities and that you get your antenna as close to a window as possible. In major markets, you can pull in nearly 30 total channels. Lastly, though they look like retro throwbacks, dipole (rabbit ears) antennas with a signal booster work extremely well for about $25-30 outlay when compared to some of the $100-plus options being marketed.

Bottom line: This TV is large and beautiful to watch. So yeah, your friends may laugh at the name "Changhong" until you turn it on and let them guess at how much you paid. If you are a cord cutter, buy a quality antenna rated for your area and pull in the gorgeous free over-the-air channels which arrive at a lesser compression rate than your 999 channel silver cable package.

5 out of 5 eggsDon't Worry. Buy It. Long Review.

Pros: 1.) The Price : I bought for 379.99 without the means of a "Rebate Card" or a "Coupon Code" and this is not a refurbished item
2.) The Size: 50" we all know how expensive 50" inch TV's they are expensive, and more so for people with a really tight budget
3.) Manufacturer: Although Changhong is not a well-known or even partially known company in America it is a well known
company in China, in fact in China it is one of their top brands, comparable to LG or Sony or Samsung.
4.) Learning Curve: Very Low, Menu is robust but simple, changing inputs is simple as well; just need to have owned a TV prior to this one to know your way around

* if this TV lasts for like a year i swear this tv would be one of the best purchases of my life.

* Keep reading.

Cons: 1.) Contrast, Saturation, Brightness ETC (Picture Quality): Picture Quality "Right-Out-The Box" needs to be tweaked, the setting needs to be changed manually by owner. You might notice that the greens and yellows are out of whack.

PS3: I have a PS3 and i had a bit difficulty getting it to show up on the TV, it's like the AV components (red, yellow, white cords) weren't working but when i used an HDMI cable to plug the playstation3 into the TV it worked. so maybe i just didn't plug it in right. just a word of warning and some helpful hints. if your unable to get your ps3 working with the AV component wire just get yourself an HDMI cable for like 5 bucks.

USB Port: I just want to clarify for those who are curious about the USB, yes any USB works, but not any file, it does not play AVI, or MP4 or the usual files that we have when we download movies from the internet (just keeping it real). what your gonna want to get is an an in between media player or media box that plays AVI or MP4 etc then plug that into the USB port on the TV and plug your WD Passport or your USB or SD card into the media box.

I feel like this is somewhat normal with some TV's they don't play everything your gonna need an additional something to play the files you want.

but please don't misunderstand me, this TV WILL play MJPEG, MPEG2, MPEG2_HD,TSHD, DD,JPEG, and TXT but in order to play AVI , Mp4, MKV or those other greatly mainstream movie files your either going to have to convert the file into the playable format or get a media box such as IncrediSonic Ultra Play IMP150 - HD TV Digital Mini Media Player - 1080p - from newegg or ama**n for like 40 bucks.

I just want everyone to understand that my CONS aren't really CONS they are just items about this TV that i had some difficulty understand or finding information about online because the Brand is so unheard of in america and not alot of people have bought it.

Buy this TV you will not regret it, i promise. and no i do not work for changhong. i just want people toknow not to be afraid to purchase, because i was afraid to purchase and the fear is unnecessary. don't pass out on a good deal because people are so ecited about the sony's and the samsungs with thier 3dtv or 240hz craps. this a good and normal TV people.

i think that people start to lose track of what they are actually looking for and actually needing when they see all other TV brands with things like : 2480p, yhgu7hz, LED ABC HDTV with reverse capability PLUS three wishes from a Factory Reconditioned Genie named Aladdin. Like it's getting ridiculous.

you like to play videogames on your Ps3, you like to watch vampire diaries and the Walking Dead, get this TV. GET. THIS.TV.

you want to watch netflix and Hulu or Ama**n Prime get a roku.

it's so simple. this tv is cheap and great. it's like a sale at TJ MAXX or marshalls or for the guys...umm...some sports store. unexpected but hard to pass up on. it doesn't need mean that you just bou

Other Thoughts: Hi Fellow Eggies,

I've decided that i am going to give a more in depth review of this television as a New Owner, A female and a Techie. hopefully, with these three categories i will be able to satisfy all those types of buyers. Forgive me if i write-ramble a bit.

I have bought Several items over the years from Newegg and have obviously never been disappointed to the point of abandoning this company. I would say that next to Ama**n newegg is my favorite "Go-to" company for my electronic needs, I prefer Ama**n just a little bit more because Am**n's customer service is, in my opinion, rated a 9 while Newegg is about a 7 or 8, in terms of returns and refunds and the speed and availability of these processes.

Newegg though has usually has better deals, year round whilst ama**n is sporadic in their deal offerings on days that are not around the holidays

I bought this Changhong 50" at 379.99 because i was looking for this size TV, but as a college student needed something within my price range. I knew 379.99 for a 50" HDTV was a steal, and unheard of. but because the Brand was not well known i scoured the internet wondering why this TV is so priced so low. it's priced low because it is a brand that is trying to extend it's market in america and they knew no one would buy a TV from a brand that that no one knows off for a very high price. i expect to the price to "normalize" once this becomes a well-known company and people see that it easily compares with an LG or Samsung or Sony ect.

The reviews for the most part were pretty good. I heard about the adjustments needed to be made to get the pciture quality you need and i went for it having no problem with having to fiddle with the remote for it. it didn't have to be perfect right out the box for the price i was getting it. to have that be an issue would be ridiculous in my eyes.

So i bought it.

i got it within 3 days from fedex. okay, awesomeness.

fedex or somebody did a cra*py job of handling the tv because there was puncture in the box and when i plugged in the TV it showed that the puncture had affected the screen and the screen had cracked creating fissures making the TV useless. it turned on just fine though. lol. and everything required was in there.

I contacted Newegg within the first hour of having the TV and asked for a replacement, because obviously the fault was the carrier's, it wasn't an "in-box" issue. they filed an RMA for me after i sent them a few pictures of the damage Via email and i received the replacement two days later before i even sent back the damaged TV (lol, which i still have and will be returning to them monday)

The new TV is... perfect.

Just so you Know: (1) tv screen (1) rectangle tempered glass base with the necessary screws and parts to connect tv to base(except for a phillips heads screwdriver which ya gotta get on your own) (1) set of manuals (1) remote (1) bag of three triple A batterie

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Hi Everybody!! I ordered this TV on Monday evening. It was delivered from several states away in perfect condition on Wednesday morning! Excellent service from Newegg & FedEx! Set up the unit right away, excellent picture, excellent unit and a GREAT price. They need a new catch phrase though, Creating New Life? Sound like a fertility clinc ad...
