I don't know about you, but RCA is not often a huge name especially down where I am from. But I was excited when I found the fifty inch RCA tv on sale. I personally have used several RCA products and was excited to be able add another RCA gadget to my houshold. The tv isn't as flashy or designed to be all catchy like some of the other more expensive brands, at least not in my opnion- but sometimes less is more. The tv is still sturdy, and well made. The front is clean lines and easy to look at. The picture is bright and colorful, and shows video quality very well. The sound is just as good as the more expensive brands and models of the same size and they are just a fraction of the price. I do really like the way that the RCA tv is built, it looks sturdy without being chunky or cumbersome, and even though it is cheaper it isn't built or made like something that is going to fall apart the same year you buy it. It was easy to set up with the dvd player and cable box and hasn't given us any trouble when going between the different devices, including plugging in and unplugging the game systems. I rate the picture and sound both a 8.5/10, and the overall quality of the tv a 9/10. For the price and what you get you are not going to get anything better.
