Pros:Picture, price, size, Guide+, side inputs

Cons:HEAVY!, no RGB inputs, remote control lacking in options

The Bottom Line: Get it if you don't have any progressive scan equipment, but avoid it if you do and want the sharpest picture. Great for a secondary TV.


36" is a pretty decent size TV. Watching a widescreen format on a 21" tv is a horrible experiance now because the actual image is like 10" high, kinda like looking at a book. THis RCA TV is a good entry TV into a true home-theatre setup. If all the TAUs, WEGAs, and Plasmas are out of your price range like they are for even me, then this is a strong competitor for your precious living room space. The picture quality can be changed to fit your EVERY need. if you have a lot of glare in the room , you can change the piture setting with a single button and you're good to go. However, my main complaint is that you can't view ANY preogressive scan material on this TV at all. NONE. So that Progressive Scan Sony DVD 5 disc changer, XBox Adapter, PS2 adapter, and Pioneer vsx811s are gonna have to wait until i get myself a big screen progressive scan projection tv i guess ;-) But i digress- the RCA is a GREAT Tv, picture is right on, and the GUIDE+ works great in compatible areas (which mine just became INCOMPATIBLE!). the on tv speakers are vertical along either side, but in the long run, if you have a home theatre, why would you use them any way? Just go ahead and set them to External audio only. But just in case you do decide to use the tv speakers, they don't have the high treb or low bass of even a good set of bookshelf speakers, dialog is lost through them. I STRONGLY reccomend outside processing of sound. Now, the worst part? This 36" TV weighs about as much as two people can lift without throwing their backs. It's HEAVY! It took 3 people to get it into my entertainment center from the car. There's no doubt that it's a quality set, but there are better for a little more. All in all, it's a good buy. Try and get it for around $500
