Element ELCPO371 Review: 37” LCD HDTV
Up for Review: Element ELCPO371 LCD TV. Recently, Element has released a number of basic LCD TV sets which are available in the market at affordable prices. But most of the manufacturers have reduced the prices of these sets, after the popularity of advanced LED technology. This model comes with a 37″ screen, 1080i vertical resolution, 16 : 9 aspect ratio and 1366 x 768 maximum resolution. All these features are common and available as basic functionalities in other advanced HDTVs available in the market. Also, the low refresh rate of the set affects your viewing experience for fast moving action and sports scenes. You can view the normal programs without any problem and place the LCD TV in a room other than your main living room. There is also an option to put it in your office and use it for viewing news and weather programs occasionally.
ELCPO371 provides a feature to view the screen from a vertical as well as horizontal angle of 1760. Using this feature, you can enjoy the TV even when you are not sitting exactly in front of its screen. So no more fights with your partner or kids for occupying the prominent front seat, while watching shows and movies. The experience will not be affected as the sound is also good and comes with reduced digital noise. Further, the set includes an ATSC Built-In Tuner and provides stereo sound to enhance the quality of the movie you are watching.

Element has included in the model the support for one additional HD input. You can connect a single device like a camcorder or DVD player, and view its contents on the 37-ich LCD screen. But most of the 37-inch models available in the market come with more than 3 HDMI inputs supports. This means, in other sets you can simultaneously connect multiple HD inputs and browse their contents on the screen, whereas with ELCPO371 you can connect a single device and view its content. Unlike others, the set does not provide any option to access streaming contents from a number of leading networks. So you will miss viewing the online video clips through YouTube and streaming movies through Netflix.
You will not be disappointed if you buy the TV for viewing only normal programs or use it as a backup or office TV. Even though some of the advanced features like internet access or multiple device connectivity is missing, the TV provides a set of features which are basic for a LCD TV. At a low price tag, some of these features also suit the need of your office TV.
