The Basics: Vizio has established itself as one of the leading providers of reasonably-priced LCD and plasma HDTVs, and this 52-inch, 1080p model is the largest in the company’s LCD line, replacing the GV52LF. The VX52LF may not have all the high-end features you’ll find on a more expensive panel, but it offers solid performance, ample connections and an attractively simple design. This TV’s healthy back panel sports three HDMI inputs that accept 1080p/60 (but not 1080p/24), plus two component video and one PC input that are also HD-capable. The menu includes the standard assortment of LCD picture adjustments, including several preset picture modes and color temperature settings, plus an adjustable backlight to tailor the image’s overall light output to suit your viewing environment. It also offers advanced white-balance controls, which isn’t a given at this price point. Vizio includes a lot ...

Olevia 242T FHD LCD HDTV
The Basics: This 42-inch model, part of Olevia’s 2 Series, has a 6.5ms response time and a 1920 x 1080 resolution. There’s also a basic 242T (without the FHD tail), which has a 1366 x 768 resolution and costs $1049. The 242T FHD does not use the Silicon Optix Realta HQV processing chip found in the 65-inch 265T FHD model; instead, it uses the MTK MDDI processor. This TV has a solid connection panel, with two HDMI inputs that accept 1080p/60 and 1080p/24, two component video inputs, one PC input and one RF input to access the internal tuners. There’s also an RS-232 port for integration into an advanced control system, plus a USB port that allows you to load firmware updates obtained from the company’s website. Instead of using common picture presets like vivid, natural and movie, the 242T FHD’s picture modes ...

Westinghouse TX-52F480S LCD HDTV
The Basics: The TX Series is Westinghouse’s top LCD line, yet these HDTVs are still an outstanding value in the 1080p market. This new 2008 model is the company’s first 52-inch LCD, and it boasts a slightly faster response time of 6.5ms, a higher stated contrast ratio of 5,000:1 and a slightly different (and more attractive) aesthetic, with a glossy black frame and brushed titanium accents. The TX-52F480S has the same generous input panel found on last year’s models. The four HDMI inputs, two component video inputs and one PC input all accept 1080p. Westinghouse puts a priority on convenience and ease of use. The side-facing input panels make it easier to connect your sources, the cable-management system makes it easier to hide the cables, and the AutoSource feature conveniently switches you to the right input when you power up a source. ...

The Basics: NEC is known primarily for its computer monitors and professional displays, but the company is making a renewed push into the higher-end residential TV market. The Multeos M40 was one of its first consumer-oriented 1080p LCDs; the company has since released several new lines, but this product is still available through online channels. The M40 is available in three configurations. The M40-IT is basically a large-screen monitor with IT-type connections. The M40-AV being described here adds HT-friendly connections for the same price, while the step-up M40-AVT model adds internal tuners for an additional cost. The M40-AV is a monitor only, with no speakers; you can purchase speakers separately for $350. The input panel has one of every type, including HDMI, DVI, RGBHV and component video, all of which accept 1080p. It also has an RGBHV output to send the signal ...

Panasonic TC-32LX85 LCD HDTV
The Basics: Panasonic is known for its plasma HDTVs, but did you know that the company also offers LCD HDTVs? The company keeps a clear screen-size delineation between the two technologies: LCDs are sized 37 inches and below, while plasmas are sized 42 inches and above. This 32-inch model is part of Panasonic’s 2008 lineup and sports a 1366 x 768 resolution. All new Panasonic TVs include an SD card slot through which you can view JPEG photos; it’s also compatible with the GalleryPlayer system that lets you display professional photographs and works of art. This TV includes three HDMI inputs, including one on the side panel for easy access; these inputs do not accept a 1080p signal. Viera Link (HDMI-CEC) is available for more intuitive control of devices connected via HDMI. There’s only one component video input and no dedicated ...
