  • fabulous picture, very happy with this unit

    Jun 8, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: price, picture quality, brightness, detachable speakers reduce width
    Cons: slow tuner, remote control is difficult to use

    Summary: When my 32" Proscan tube TV died, I figured I had two options. Either spend $$$ and get a solid set that would be my final TV purchase for a long time, or buy something relatively inexpensive that would give me another few years to let the current ... read more

  • Great for what it is...but only EDTV

    Pros: Great Price, Rock Solid, Reliable and well built. Great sound from built in speakers.
    Cons: Only EDTV. Suffers from color banding in shadows and other similarly complex tones.

    Summary: I purchased this TV from Costco about a year and a half ago. We currently use it in our bedroom to watch evening news, Cops, Simpsons, and other junk off our Tivo. The thing to remember about this TV is that it is only EDTV and thus shouldn't ... read more

  • Plenty to like, but disappointing picture quality overall

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Solid construction, attractive design, very good picture quality with DVDs, intuitive on-screen menus, excellent speakers
    Cons: Gray edge stripes in 4:3 mode. Poor picture quality from standard definition cable/satellite sources

    Summary: Though I'm usually reluctant to stray from well known TV brands, I took a chance on this plasma display and was generally pleased, though I returned it for poor performance with standard definition (non-HD) broadcasts. Costco featured this model in a ... read more

    Pros: You can watch TV shows on it.
    Cons: It is the most aggravating piece of equipment in my home.

    Summary: Picture quality sucks. Remote is delayed like a bed foreign kung fu movie, and now the DVD is STUCK in the unit and I have only had it for 5 months!!!!!!!!! Your kids also can't play DVD games because of the crappiness of the remote and there is no ... read more

    Pros: best bang for your buck out there
    Cons: slow processor finding signal and PIP

    Summary: i recently bought the Akia PDP4294 and could not be happier! It's hooked up to dtv and the picture is great. I bought it from Costco as well the same day i returned a Daytec 42 inch plasma that didn't compare and cost 200 bucks more!Why anyone wouldn't ... read more

    Pros: Great picture with HD content.
    Cons: Included speakers seem a little weak.

    Summary: I bought my 42" Akai plasma at Costco. It is my first plasma. After reading the reviews here, I was concerned that I might be disappointed in the quality of non-HD content. Maybe it is because I am used to lessor TV's but I think the overall picture ... read more

  • very disappointed at the picture quality in TV mode

    Pros: Good sound quality. Looks good hanging on the wall
    Cons: Absolutely terrible picture quality when watching broadcast TV in either satellite or cable mode.

    Summary: I bought this Akai with the house I bought as it was already hanging on the wall and looked great. I should have looked at it when it was turned on the satellite TV channels instead of the DVD. While using it to watch a TV channel, it makes you feel as ... read more
