>> Hi I'm David Katzmaier, senior editor from CNET dot com and I'm sitting next to the HP LC 4776N. This is a 47 inch 1080P LCD TV. For a high end TV we were a little bit disappointed by the HP's picture quality however. When we took it to the lab we noticed that it's blacks weren't quite as deep as those produced by a lot of LCD and plasma TV's. Also the color was relatively inaccurate for a TV like this. And the main problem was we couldn't really adjust a lot of the picture parameters because this TV was just missing too many picture controls so overall picture quality was a little bit disappointing. Styling might appeal to people with a little bit more conservative tastes. Around the edge of the screen you've got a nice glossy frame here with this chrome accent mark right above the speakers and of course a glossy stand to match the TV itself. When you go into the menu system as we mentioned there's really not all that many options to play with the picture. You can play around with the picture presets and adjust contrast to brightness but you're really missing things like fine tuning of the color temperature, gamma, stuff like that which we really do like if you're going to be playing around in expert mode with the picture of this TV. Around back you'll find three HDMI inputs which is an improvement over last year's HD TV's. It allows you to connect three high def devices with digital connections. There's also two component video inputs and of course this is an HP TV so there is a VGA computer style input around back so conductivity-wise, it does a pretty good job. Anyway that's a quick look at the HP LC 4776N and I'm David Katzmaier. ^M00:01:25 [ Music ]
The Sharp LC-32GP1U's high price makes it difficult to recommend over similar-size LCDs, despite plenty of features and a generally good picture quality.
The Samsung UNF9000 could be one of the best 4K TVs on the market, but its high price and the low impact of its 4K resolution make it very difficult to recommend.
The Seiki SE50UY04 breaks new ground in pricing for a TV with 4K resolution. That's the good news. But all those extra pixels don't mean its picture is better than that of a standard 1080p TV.
A high resolution, a bunch of HD inputs, and decent image quality make the Westinghouse LVM-47w1 a strong contender in the budget big-screen LCD category.
The 1080p LG 47LB5D delivers good looks and plenty of features, but its picture quality has a hard time keeping up with the pack.
Although not quite up to the picture-quality standards of the stiff 1080p competition, the 40-inch JVC LT-40PN97's price and feature set still make it worthy of consideration.
Toshiba's 32-inch 32CV510U LCD, with its picture quality and feature set, makes a solid choice for mainstream HDTV shoppers.
The Epson PictureMate Pal's feature set will keep casual users happy with its good quality, fast prints, and convenience.
The Wi-Fi-enabled Kodak EasyShare EX-811 Digital Picture Frame offers a strong feature set, good image quality, and online integration with the company's free EasyShare Gallery online photo-sharing service, making this frame a top choice in the digital ph
Six HDMI inputs, easy iPod connectivity, and sweet sound quality make the Pioneer VSX-1020-K an excellent midrange AV receiver, although it's missing some minor HDMI features.
