This has the Emerson brand name but is actually a Samsung model - shine a flashlight inside the back left speaker grille to see this. Except for the lack of inputs (switchboxes can take care of this issue), the TV has given me no trouble and has a great picture. I suppose if you have HD cable or Blu-Ray, and can really tell the difference between 720p and 1080p, you might be disappointed, but otherwise it has turned out to be a steal.

I purchased the Emerson 42" plasma TV about 10 days ago to use for TV viewing only. I have no complaints to report. I have been using Emerson products trouble free for over 35 years.

I don't know where you heard it is no good from but this TV has an excellent picture for the price. It looks fantastic when watching HD content such as Blu-ray and HD DVD. The biggest drawback is the lack of inputs.

Emerson really doesn't make their own TVs, they have them built by someone else. This TV appears to be built by Samsung. Figure on similar overall performance in terms of picture to an entry level Samsung plasma, save for some differences in features that you'd obviously gain by buying a more expensive set with the Samsung lable. Picture quality is very good for TV of this price.

If you mean the actual coaxial cable it does not come with one you'd have to purchase one seperately. If you mean the RF input for the cable, it does and the TV features a digital QAM tuner as well(which might allow you to get some music channels or HD channels if your cable company has unscrambled ones even without a cable box). It also does typical over the air reception with an antenna.

no cable cord.

when you say cable cord do you mean coaxle( black cord that screws in)?

Remember...the best quality picture from your hd tv should not come from a cable cord but from hdmi cords or av component cords. Also, you will need to have a HD cable box /1080 dvd / satelite box if you want that hd quality. You wont fully utilize that tv unless you give it the proper feed!
