1. The "Model" you have.
Olevia 427V (for bedroom and home office)
2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.
3. What you like best about your LCD.
4. What you don't like about your LCD.
The remote, the on screen menu, the plastic stand and generaly cheapish look (although it looks way better at home in lower light conditions than at office depot). It sucks that there is no way to select an input directly AFAIK
, this limits your advanced options for learning remotes (for programming macros).
5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.
PIP would be nice, and more HD inputs!
6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.
Make the on screen menu bigger and work more intuitively. Give us a decent remote that is backlit (although I will be using a learning remote so I don't really care about this much). Detachable speakers. More attractive
7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.
Only 1 real component jack (the VGA jack can be used as component with a VGA-component cable).
8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.
When setting up a new source it is kinda glitchy at first and takes a while to detect.
9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.
10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.
- paid $569 at Office Depot
- using as a bedroom and home office TV
- my Thinkpad connected via the VGA jack looks GREAT, much better than my 50" Samsung DLP. Be sure to change the display settings to 1366 x 768, it will fill your screen at 1:1. I could probably use this as a monitor, it really looks that good. I haven't connected a DVD player for this yet, but watched a movie lsat night using WinDVD 8 on my laptop and it looked very good.
- Office Depot is a joke and had the demo hooked up to a portable DVD player using composite, so it looked like total garbage.
