PRODUCT PICTORIAL & WALKTHROUGH
Let's take a walk around your new potential TV purchase.
To keep the overall dimensions down, the TV has a relatively thin outer bezel which is accented with chrome on the lower leading edge.
The only control on the front bezel is the power button. On a funny side note, the sounds when the TV powers on and off are hilarious. They sound like something you would hear from Super Mario Bro's gameplay. You have to hear it to believe it.
The other menu, channel, volume and source buttons are hidden on the right side of the TV. I will go into a little more menu detail farther on in the review.
the left side of the TV houses the secondary connection panel complete with standard audio/video hookups and a Wiselink and HDMI connection. I will cover the Wiselink feature in more detail in a upcoming section. Just as a side note, you can see why I told you earlier that this glossy finish is a fingerprint nightmare.
The rear of the TV is comprised of the main connection panel, a top ventilation grill, and the two lower integrated speakers. I didn't even know any speakers existed until I read about it in the owner's manual. I have a 7.1 surround sound home theater system so my TV is used for visual display purposes only. The speakers are ok, but I wouldn't count on them to give you a true home theater experience even if they have the SRS TruSurround XT feature. But don't get me wrong, they are aren't bad for a standard TV sound solution.
