As long as your desktop computer has a video card that outputs to HDMI then you should be fine, if your computer has a DVI connection rather than an HDMI, there are converters that you can purchase. Not sure if walmart carries them, pretty sure NewEgg.com does.

It depends on the video card you have installed in your computer. Some video cards have an HDMI Video Port and therefore this would connect to your computer or laptop, using a traditional HDMI cable. But most computers and laptops have a VGA or DB-15 connector, this TV does not support that connection type.

You can hook up any computer to any tv with an hdmi input as long as you have a video card with an HDMI output. This TV does not have a standard monitor hook up so with out the proper hardware on your computer no it will not work as a monitor. If you know some one that is a little technically inclined or you are yourself you can install a radeon 4650 for $40.00 and then you will have an HDMI output on your computer. But check your available expansion slots first. Hope this helps...

answer 4
What nobody has mentioned here yet is that most cable companies now provide free HD channels alongside the standard channels without the need for a "cable box". When I say alongside, I am referring to the HD versions of the basic channels (ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, etc.) that you will get when you plug your cable directly into the HD Television. For example...if you receive channel 5, there is an equivalent High Definition channel of 5.1. These channels can be automatically programmed into your HD television when you first set up your new TV. I know this is true with Brighthouse and Comcast, yet your cable company will not openly tell you about this because they want you to rent their HD boxes.

answer 1
I have an Emerson TV that I watch EVERY DAY, for over 15 years, and it has never given me one bit of trouble. I am hoping to finally replace it with this Emerson 32" LCD tomorrow morning.

I am Disabled, so I watch a LOT of TV, and this TV has 1000's of hours on it!. And I bought this one on sale back then also. lol

I also have another Emerson TV that I used in my semi truck sleeper berth for years, driving over nearly every highway in the US.

And even after all of the bouncing and banging for several years on some of the worst roads in the United States AND Canada, if STILL works like it did when it was new!

So any time I'm looking at maybe buying a new TV, and it says Emerson, I know I'm getting a good product for my money...

When I find a good company that makes a good product, I become loyal to that company, until they prove other wise..

And NO, I don't work for Emerson or Walmart..lol..

Hope this helps you decide one way or the other...

Well. The answer is, it depends. If you are using a standard A/V connection, There will not be any lag, but porr image quality. Componenet will give you a good picture, and lag that is not very noticeable. And HDMI, will give you wonderful quality with lag in the gameplay. Ganted, the lag rate depends on the refresh rate of the television, not necissarily the generalization that all HDTVs lag. There is no refresj rate in this description, making this a rather risky purchase, if you care about picture quality. The bottom line is, Component would be the best path to take.

Yes it will lag, not alot; only milliseconds... when shopping for a tv, look at the "Hz" usually tv's come in 60 & 120 Hz (this is the refresh rate; how often the tv refreshes the picture) so a 120 Hz tv would be best for gaming. This tv will work pretty well though.

I purchased a 22" Emerson a few months back. Although it is not the same size, it will probably work the same. It has been a great little TV, but there is a small bit of screen lag when playing games from my 360 (MW2, Black Ops, MOH, etc shooters). It happens on both the HDMI and the standard video inputs. However, it has not affected me so much that I gave up on it.

And to the person who answered that the manual says 1, yes the manual does say 1 -- for the SIDE input list -- above which it also indicates the other 2 HDMI inputs in the list for the REAR of the set. So, in total, obviously, it has three.

Question

Is an LCD the same as a Plasma TV?

In the past I purchased an LCD from Dell. Exactly a year to the day the warranty ended the tv went out. It took me another year to finally reach a sympathetic cus.svc.rep. somewhere in India after being told I was just out of luck & they would do nothing about it. Finally a year later they agreed to send me a refurbished TV. It also lasted approx.one year. I do use my TV daily & sometimes all day but was told that it would last about 7 to 10yrs. but that a plasma would last probably 15 is this true? & should a heavy TV user look into a plasma rather than an LCD? Thx.

No, they are different technologies. Both LCD and Plasma have about the same lifespan, based on normal viewing habits, which is 7-10 years. If you are a heavy user, especially a gamer, you face the burn-in issue with plasma. Most plasmas have a feature to clear the burn in from static images, but each use reduces the life of the set significantly. Hope this helps.

From what I was told when i bought mine, most LCDs and plasmas will last about 5 years depending on actual hours per day watched, I think you having trouble after a year is a fluke, The key is this, you get what you paid for, I have found Vizio to be a very good and fair priced tv, i own 2 Vizio lcd tv's, a 26 inch and a 47 both have been great, the 47 inch stays on in my house almost 24 hours a day 7 days a week! so far going on year one and troubles at all. Vizio, sony, even Samsung and LG are good. I prfer the LCD over the plasma, and they now have what is called a LED LCD TV, a little better picture then a plain LCD, i have one of those in the vizio 26 inch.

no, plasma tv's usually last around 5 (to if your lucky) 10 years. lcd tv have gotten better in the last couple years and can now last for up to 25 years. no, plasma is far from as good as lcd/led. lcd tv's use thousands of pixels to generate a picture on the screen. plasma uses gas (thats why they don't last as long). plasma makes for a nice picture. but if you want something that'll last, buy a samsung lcd or led tv. theres a reason they stopped making plasma tv's. hope that helps.

Plasma's darken over time but use less electricity so it may last longer but the picture may degrade.

You described a TV failing because of bad components and that is something that is completely luck of the draw as to whether a TV lasts. Even the most expensive TV's go out for no good reason.

A heavy TV user should look at both LCD and Plasma and just decide where their dollar is best spent on quality vs price. I still prefer LCD.

If all you have is a reg cable box with eather a coaxel or composite (red,white,yellow) hook ups, And you are not ever planning on really upgrading down the road with a dvd player with component (red, green, blue) or hdmi cables, blue ray player some day or any kind of that stuff. a simple basic tv well be fine. If some day you think you might want to upgrade your cable box quality to HD or add on some other things. then you might look into getting a tv with the 1080 now. instead of spending money on one half way there. then deciding later you want to upgrade and spending even more money on another tv to keep up with the quality of a future blue ray player for example... your call :)
