Pros Quality Built
Cons Major Color Problem
Summary I originally had purchased the Dell W2600 which had the best picture I have ever seen on any TV but returned it because the TV had damage from shipping. I decided to replace it with this larger model instead because I figured that it would have the same quality picture as the W2600. I have connected the TV to an off-air antenna since it has a built in HD tuner and to a DVD player via component inputs. The colors are way off. There is too much red or purple. I have tried to adjust the colors numerous times and even moved the connections. Blacks are reddish-black and whites are almost pinkish. Any way I tried to adjust the colors, I would end up with too much red or purple,there is no "good" zone.I agree with the previous comment from another owner regarding the color issues with this TV. There are also comments on Dell's chat forum regarding this issue (I wish I would have read the forum comments before I purchased). I do not believe its a defect with my TV alone but rather a model flaw. I am going to return it back to Dell and get the W2600 again. If you are looking for a 32" LCD TV, I suggest that you go with another brand.
Pros Superb Picture... Looks fantastic with every type of input (pc, watching tv, dvd movies, xbox)
Cons a little pricey
Summary I sincerely believe that you must have defective units if you are seeing these problems with the picture. That sucks, but to say that the picture issues you have seen are design flaws is just wrong. Mine looks perfect with every input. Black performance is great and colors are accurate, especially noticeable with DVD movies and HD content (Xbox 360 in HD is amazing). Tivo also looks great. Looks far better than my friends Samsung 32" LCD. I am very impressed with the performance and versatility of this TV. I do think its a bit on the pricey side, however, I don't mind so much because the picture far exceded my expectations. Great TV. I just hope it holds up, I've had a negative experience with a Dell computer and I don't want to have to deal with their support again.
Pros brilliant blues(blue crush)lush greens(last samurai).
Cons takes a few seconds for the t.v. to come on as there is a dell screensaver that appears before tv channel comes on. also had trouble with the component video hookup;could get a red-pinkish image.
Summary this t.v. is great for movies with great luminance such as movies made close to the equator like blue crush, 2 fast 2furious.
and the last samurai are great test dvd'd to
see what this tv is capable of.
poor quality with blacks and whites, no detail whatsoever just a blur of color.
a lot of configuring done to video menu for this. i also had trouble with the component video hookup all i got was a red-pinkish image had to resort to my s-cable.
overall quality- great for dvd,not so good for regular analog tv viewing.
Pros Beautifully accurate color out of the box
Cons Runs a little hot
Summary This is just a beautifully styled TV and it produces an excellent picture. I use this set for my desktop monitor and my primary TV as well. The resolution is excellent for a monitor, with text and pictures being produced sharply. It is comparable to the 19" Dell monitor. The picture for movies and TV is great. The only drawback that I have found is that it does run quite hot, so I expect it to really heat up the room in the summer. Ultimately a small price to pay for such an otherwise perfect set.
"Excellent value"on by sdrexler
Pros Built in ATSC tuner, PIP, POP, PBP and 2 HDMI inputs
Cons Can't think of any.
Summary For the current discount price, this TV has great features. Built in ATSC tuner, POP, PIP, PBP, 2 HDMI inputs, VGA input, great virtual surround sound, great remote, excellent picture which is very adjustable. Exceeds the Sony Bravia in features and approaches it in image quality. Very few direct LCD HDTV's will look good when only an analog signal is fed to them. The HD images look great.
