5 out of 5 eggs HDCP does work 11/04/2014

This review is from: Changhong 32" 720p LED HDTV - LED32YC1700UA

Pros: I actually reviewed this TV before but would like to address the HDCP issues other buyers have been mentioning here. Before I get to that though, I've had this TV since July and it has been a fantastic purchase. The picture quality is remarkable for the price we paid, the reflection on the TV is much better than our old CRT that we replaced this with in our living room (we have the front door window beaming the sun right at the TV during the afternoon), and have had no issues whatsoever. This is mainly used by my parents in the living room with over the air digital television so I never actually got around to testing HDCP devices on this until seeing these reviews mentioning the HDCP issues. Well, being concerned that our TV might suffer the same problem, I went ahead and tested out my Xbox 360 on all 3 HDMI ports on the side. No issues whatsoever. I played a few games and watched a few movies, no HDCP issues. Even though our TV will hardly being having HDCP connected devises (my parents will always stick with over the air DTV) it's good to know that it does work. Just for fun I even tried out an NESRGB on the TV over an external component to HDMI converter that gave out only a 240p resolution and it looked fantastic!

Cons: The long wait time when turning it on that I mentioned in my first review. Also, it would have been great if it accepted 240p resolution over component for retro gaming, but it's not a big deal. Most big name brand TVs don't either anyway. It does accept 240p over HDMI however.

Other Thoughts: I don't know why other buyers here are complaining about HDCP issues as we've encountered none on ours. They should send their TVs back for a replacement.

SAMSUNG C550 T24C550ND Charcoal Gray 23.6

Pros: Built-in TV tuner, a good amount of inputs including an analog component and composite input, good decent size for a bedroom or office. It's also still recognized as a 2nd monitor on the PC even when you change the input, which is what I wanted.

Cons: Vertical banding. It's really annoying, and it seems to plague this TV model. I tried two different ones, both the same model, and they both have it, one worse than the other. If it wasn't for this problem I would have given this TV an easy 5 eggs, but I must give it an average 3 eggs because of this annoying problem.

Other Thoughts: About the other reviewer mentioning that this TV/monitor doesn't turn off when you turn off the PC, it is annoying but not a big deal. It does eventually turn off on it's own and doesn't take that long for it to do it. I'd say the vertical banding issue on this model is much more of a concern than that.

5 out of 5 eggs Great deal, great TV 05/31/2014

This review is from: Changhong 32" 720p LED HDTV - LED32YC1700UA

Pros: I read the reviews mentioning how surprised they were at the quality of this TV and decided to see for myself, especially at a steal of $170 + free s/h memorial weekend! Came really fast. in only 2 business days! Even after reading the reviews, I was still surprised at how good the quality is on this TV for a brand name I've never heard of before. I didn't have to make any adjustments to the picture, it's great. The viewing angles are almost as good as a CRT (tube) TV! I was shocked.

Cons: It takes a good bit of time to power this on, I find myself pressing the power button on the remote twice a lot. The speakers could be stronger, but they're good enough for an LED-LCD TV.

Other Thoughts: The stand doesn't swivel, but I didn't need that anyway. I like how Changhong didn't opt for the "slim back" marketing ploy that a lot of other companies do for their LED-LCD TVs, because I prefer having a built in power supply and better speakers compared to what you get out of a completely flat LED-LCD TV.
