Does this TV have great video quality? Because I read that the TV image when looking close can look a bit blocky and not truly sharp, is this true?

That's true with all of them when you don't have the highest quality connection on them and you're sitting too close to the screen while in Zoom mode.

I've also noticed that many of the Walmart stores are not connecting the display models right either. It's a waste of power and money to connect anything to the RCA Composite inputs on a full HD TV. If all you have is the poor man's connection, then it's the poor man's video quality you're going to get.

Let's say you have a LCD HD TV like the one we're looking at here, a standard DirecTV receiver with S-Video, a component DVD player, a composite Wii game console, a powered S-Video to S-VGA box that upconverts the signal, and a powered Switch Box that has both composite and S-Video ports on every device connection including the output. Notice I said "powered" switch box, NOT the cheap simple selector boxes that does nothing but adapt from one cable to the other.

Sounds like a mixed up mess, but it can still be connected properly.

You would connect the DVD player directly to the HD TV using component YPbPr cables.

Next you would connect the standard DirecTV receiver to the switch box using S-Video cable.

Next you would connect the Wii to the switch box using the composite cables. The powered switch box sends the composite signal through an internal S-Video filter so you can have a clean S-Video connection for the Wii.

Then you would connect the switch box S-Video output to the converter's S-Video input.

Then connect the switch box S-VGA output to the S-VGA input on the HD TV.

Yes, this means you now have 2 switching access points, but you have the highest analog signal available.

From worst to best the analog connections go like this...
RF -> Composite -> S-Video -> Component YPbPr -> Component RGBHV/BNC -> DVI-analog *rare* -> to display
-------------------
For digital connections between DVI and HDMI you would just use the proper cables to connect the devices together. You can also connect a DVI device directly to an HDMI input port using a split-adapter because the signals use the same uncompressed data streams. The only difference between the two is DVI doesn't not carry the sound on the same cable and HDMI does.

Simple enough DVI-Digital -> HDMI -> to display
-------------------
Never try to upconvert analog to digital. It's like trying to magically transform an apple into an ugly orange. All you get is sharpened pixelation, smeared colors, and fuzzy side bars. - You also never try to downconvert from a higher signal to lower one. All you get is missing data and poor color matching.

It depends, what is your input? Dvds, and air will be 720p, so you will see a difference in sharpness. You can sharpen the picture to the extreme too. Not a good idea to do though.

There are edges between the dark light areas. Hard to read small text from the above sources.

If you want 1080p in this size, it's a good deal, and even makes a good PC monitor. The audio is anemic, to be expected in a small flat screen, but it has good inputs and video quality. As always with bargain tech, an extended warranty is worth looking at , since any repair NOT under warranty is likely to cost more than the set.

Yes, and it has good adjustments for fine tuning color, contrast and tint. I backed down the sharpness and color on mine (the reds were too dominant as is came) and would suggest you experiment with the "dynamic contrast" settings to find one that suits you - the eco-friendly settings will be relatively dimmer (it turns down the backlighting) but this model only draws $15/year estimated power for normal use, so it may not be worth a compromise.

I have to admit that HD rules. The digital is wonderful. The air channels leave a little to be desired. I am a sports fan and the U.S. Open Tennis was not too good for color on ESPN2 and yet on the CBS Network it was beautiful.

Yes, you either need a VGA to VGA male cable for the video and a stereo 1/8" male to male for the audio (unless you're already running the audio to external computer speakers, which I would recommend as this model's speakers are pretty anemic), OR,
if you have a DVI or HDMI video output from your computer, you won't need the audio cable, but you WILL need instead an HDMI male/male cable or a DVI male to HDMI male cable instead - monoprice is a great place to get any of these.
The picture is quite sharp when you set your resolution correctly on the PC.

answer 3
Definitely get the 1080p. Explanation:
720 p vs 1080p refers to the way the picture is drawn (the "p" means "progressive" ... one line after another vertically) and the number of dots or pixels that make up the picture from top to bottom. Most flatpanel HDTVs are considered 720p if they have display panels with 1280x720 or 1366x768 pixels (2 most common sizes), and 1080p if they have 1920x1080 pixels. The more pixels available the finer the detail possible in the picture. But the higher resolution is only important if you have a suitable source (Blu-ray disks for example, since all HDTV is only 720p or 1080i) and sit close enough to see the extra detail.

Zootedone,sorry but you are wrong.In this case(obviously tv's)more is better. 1080 give's a much better picture-it's got more pixel's,thus cleaner picture and if any one want's to use Blue-Ray then having nothing less than 40" w/1080 make's the Ray almost redundant.

Yes, it has (IIRC) 200x200 VESA mounting locations, and it's pretty light, so most any wall mount or articulating mount should be fine. Obviously don't mount the included table stand if you go this route. Just as always be careful to get into a wall stud or use good anchor bolts on the wall mount.
