Olevia 747i LCD HDTV
The Basics: The 7 Series is one of the higher-end series in Olevia’s LCD lineup. This 47-inch, 1080p model has an 8ms response time and employs Silicon Optix’s Realta HQV chip to handle its video-processing duties. The 747i has a healthy connection panel, with two HDMI inputs that accept 1080p/60 and 1080p/24, two component video inputs, one PC input and two RF inputs 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 747i’s picture modes are set up based on the type of sources you connect, such as progressive DVD, high-def TV, or gaming console. The menu includes a limited three-step adjustable backlight and direct access to ...

Westinghouse TX-42F430S 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 2007 model has a generous input panel, with four HDMI inputs, two component video inputs and a PC input, all of which 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. For the hi-def newbie, the Quick Install Matrix explains the different connection options. A single RF input provides access to the internal NTSC, ATSC and ClearQAM tuners, and an electronic program guide is included. The TX-42F430S’s aesthetic is fairly basic, with a two-tone black/dark-silver finish and ...

Mitsubishi LT-40134 LCD HDTV
The Basics: The LT-40134 is considered a mid-level model in Mitsubishi’s LCD line because it does not feature Smooth120Hz technology, which doubles the TV’s frame rate from 60 to 120 Hz to reduce motion blur. However, its connections, technologies and features are otherwise similar to the higher-end 144 and 244/Diamond Series. The generous connection panel includes four HDMI and three component video inputs, with one of each on the side panel for easy access. The HDMI inputs accept 1080p/60 and 1080p/24. You also get dual RF inputs to access the internal tuners and a USB port for viewing digital photos. This model does not have the CableCARD slot found on the Diamond Series, but it does have the TV Guide Daily program guide.

The Basics: LG offers both plasma and LCD HDTVs. This 47-inch, 1080p LCD hails from the company’s higher-end Opus lineup, and it utilizes TruMotion 120Hz technology, which doubles the TV’s frame rate from 60 to 120Hz to reduce motion blur and render smoother movement. It also uses a Super In-Plane Switching (S-IPS) panel with a 5ms response time. The 47LBX has a healthy connection panel that includes three HDMI, two component video and one PC inputs, all of which accept 1080p. RS-232 and IR ports allow for integration into a more advanced control system, and there’s a USB port for MP3/JPEG playback. The onscreen menu sports a nice assortment of picture adjustments, including an adjustable backlight, direct access to advanced white-balance controls, low/high/off TruMotion options and the ability to enable LG’s XD processing, with contrast, color and noise settings. The Intelligent Eye ...

Hitachi L47V651 LCD HDTV
The Basics: Hitachi produces both plasma and LCD flat panels. The company reserves its bigger screen sizes for the plasma arena, so this 47-inch, 1080p model is the largest in the LCD lineup. The TV has a 1920 x 1080 resolution and uses a Super In-Plane Switching (S-IPS) panel to improve its motion and viewing angle; however, it does not offer 120Hz technology. The connection panel sports three HDMI inputs (including one on the side panel) that accept 1080p/60 but not 1080p/24. You also get two HD-capable component video inputs, plus an RS-232 port to integrate the TV into a more advanced control system. The side-panel SD card reader allows you to view JPEG photos on the 47-inch screen. The menu includes a solid but not extensive amount of picture adjustments. You get several preset picture modes, color temperature options and an adjustable ...
