VIZIO M322I-B1 32

3 out of 5 eggs Wouldn't Recommend 07/08/2015

This review is from: VIZIO M322I-B1 32" Class 1080p 120Hz Smart LED HDTV

Pros: x3 HDMI, Energy efficient, Lightweight, decent image quality

Cons: Sound issues, too many picture adjustments, power on/off response

Other Thoughts: For three bills it's pretty good but, If I could do it again, I'd get a Samsung.
Bear in mind here, I'm really nitpicky regarding AV. There's simply too many adjustable factors with this units picture quality. Fine tuning it to your tastes is a chore because of all the options. Usually I'd say options are a good thing, but with image quality too many options gives you many options to make mistakes and the constant tinkering becomes tedious. IMO, image presets should be close enough to perfect to make adjusting it a simple matter of a few tweaks.
I'm not impressed with the audio either; an issue I resolved with a set of Bose speakers, or so I thought. Often, when turning on tv, my nice speakers, plugged into the tv via RCA connectors, emit a static hiss with some garble in the background, making me turn the tv on and off, which makes it go away. And btw, the onboard speakers don't play nice with external speakers either, be they connected via RCA or optical (also tried a Vizio soundstand). That particular quirk was not replicable on an older Samsung this unit replaced.
Others have reported the remote as irresponsive; it's the power on/off cycle that's ridiculously slow. Remote response for other things is just fine. Including the nifty keyboard on the back of this units' remote for the smart aspects. The smart tv aspect is fair; netflix screen is not as good as using the website but it's nice when you don't want to power on your computer. {BTW, I'm using it as a pc monitor as well, used to run audio through the hdmi, but preferred sound quality from PC}
It's ok. I just can't give it a recommend.

GE Lighting Energy Smart Color LED Party Light 1-Watt (15-Watt Equivalent) Blue A15 Light Bulb with Medium Base
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Does what I bought it to do.

Cons: Pricey, but if it's what ya' need...

Other Thoughts: It's about as bright as an incandescent night light, only blue. Perhaps a bit too bright to be used as a night light, it's great as a low power guide light for certain areas or just a chill out mood light. -This is an atmosphere or low level illumination bulb. Not something you would use to read with.

Changhong 42

4 out of 5 eggs Excellent display 04/28/2014

This review is from: Changhong 42" 1080p LED HDTV - LED42YC2000UA

Pros: Great video, acceptable sound, tolerable price, enough inputs for most users, easy menu navigation

Cons: Poor PC display for computing, even through HDMI. Pixel pitch seems fairly large.

Other Thoughts: This is a decently priced, very good television. -Questions of longevity aside (only had it about 2 weeks now). It makes for good HD picture quality that leaves little to be desired and the sound...may not blow ya' back in your chair but it does the job pretty well. Minimal packing and instructions, but that's tolerable. Base simply gets attached via a few screws and isn't the sturdiest thing out there; but as long as the ground beneath it stays still it's fine.
Gripes: it's a terrible computer monitor. Seeing fine lines requires herculean toils between the TV's settings and your graphic drivers. Pixel pitch is simply too large for a comfortable monitor.
Simply put; it's a fine TELEVISION. But a poor monitor.
