Great tv for the price and it is big enough to satisfy your flat screen needs. It is easily programmable and internet ready from the side, and it's easy to hook up other devices as well. i really like this tv and would buy it again for the other rooms in my house. Nicer size than I expected.I can't wait to hook up and play video games on a large screen!

Picture Quality
Excellent-easily widescreen programmable.No fuzziness.

Sound Quality
The sound is very clear and it carries throughout the room evenly. Without any fluctuation,in volume, that you sometimes get with certain stations and commercials. Didn't have to get a surround sound system to get a great tone, and sound.

Durability
I have had it for 4 years,no trouble.

Design
Slim and attractive gives you a great tv design without the expensive price tag.

Performance
I haven't had any trouble with programming it, connecting other tech gadgets or screen darkening.

So, we bought this tv to use in our master bedroom. We could never get it to sync with our cable remote so we had to continue to use both. A bit annoying but not anything that would have made me return the tv. It was nice and crisp. More than adequate for watching television in bed. Then, it went BAD. One night, I turned it on and the remote didn't seen to work. I tried a couple of different buttons - volume, channel, power. Nothing. Nada. Zilch. So, I used the buttons on the tv. Grr. I assumed that the remote batteries were going dead. So, I replaced the batteries. No luck. Then, the next night, I turned on the tv and it started running through all of the menus. Volume UP. Volume down. More color, less color. Channels changing. GRRRRR! Now, I am annoyed. So, I turned it off. Tried again later. No luck. I'm so ticked. Of course, there is no warranty left on the hunk of junk. I searched all the websites. Apparently, this is not unusual. The EXACT same thing has happened to others with NO solution. Are you kidding me? This is clearly the WORST PURCHASE WE EVER MADE!

DO NOT PURCHASE

Comments about Sylvania - 32" LCD HDTV:

We purchased two at the same time. The first one just died (black screen) for no known reason, at 1.5 years. It was used in a spare bedroom for guests, maybe a few times a year. Now the 2nd one died, same exact way, at only 2 years. Pure junk! Obviously after reading reviews everywhere online it was complete junk, the company knew it, did no recall, and did nothing to fix the problem. I will never purhcase a Sylvania product now, especially when there is zero customer serivce.

New tv for my office

Comments about Sylvania - 32" LCD HDTV:

I received this for Christmas to put in my office to enjoy while working but I loved it so much I moved it to my green house because its the perfect size and has great sound and picture from any were in the green house.

Picture Quality
The picture quality is great from any distance but I have noticed older dvd's or tv's shows are not perfect but its not the TV systems issue.

Sound Quality
I moved this to my greenhouse because the sound is so great anywhere in the room and it doesn't need additional speakers for great sound.

Durability
So far, I have not had any issues with it and its in a room that is humid so that's saying a lot.

Design
Small, compact and lightweight plus has all the features and more for the technology additions I may want to hookup to it.

Performance
It turns on and off with ease and the remote works from any angle in them room even in corners tucked way back in the back of my greenhouse.

Summarize this product in one sentence.

By 

from Oak Ridge, NJ

Comments about Sylvania - 32" LCD HDTV:

Would not recommend this television because picture quality is not great and is fuzzy and not clear. Also, images are distorted at times; and the color is not crisp and clear; the colors are off and not as bright as they should be. There are many other tvs out there tht will give you a great picture with excellent sound quality that should be considred before making a purchase of this television.

Good for the price.

By 

from Fairmont, WV

Comments about Sylvania - 32" LCD HDTV:

I bought this TV last year on sale. I didn't pay much for it. I have to say I like it as far as a flat screen goes but I really can't see any HD difference and the sound quality seems poor. It isn't a hard TV to use. The options are easy and the remote was ok. Overall I would say it's a good TV for the money I paid but just not the best. Often times the sound seems distant and distorted. I had been paying extra for HD channels but I cancled those. I hate to spend money to buy another TV until this one goes... or maybe we should move it to a spare room? The design is ok but I don't really feel like it's sturdy on it's "leg". When we play the Wii it often seems to rock and I worry about it falling over.

great for the price!!

Comments about Sylvania - 32" LCD HDTV:

I've had this tv for over two years with no problems whatsoever. It was the cheapest one I could find so I was not expecting much but so far it has surpassed all expectations. Picture quality is great and so is sound. There have been no malfunctions whatsoever.
