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

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

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: 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

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
