Envision L37W698 Review: 37” LCD HDTV
Up for Review: Envision L37W698 LCD TV. The sleekness of a brilliant black design comes to the fore when the Envision L37W698 is unwrapped. The front panel design is further enhanced with silver speakers which provide a great contrast to the black bezel. The base of the TV merges with the silvery white of the sturdy stand. It gives a completely different look to the TV. The 37” display is just the right size for any part of your house. Making it VESA wall mountable, Envision has increased the importance of the front panel design.
A review shows that there is a completely digital S/PDIF interface which makes watching movies on home theater systems a pleasure. To add to it, there are built-in 10W speakers which make a huge difference to the splendid sound effects. There is a headphone also for ease of use. The picture quality is good with 1366 x 768 resolution. This proves to be a winner with a not very high price to match. The lower price with all the basic features makes it an interesting proposition for most buyers.

The Envision L37W698 has a very realistic 1200:1 contrast ratio. This value can be bettered keeping in view the tremendous improvement in the contrast ratio values of most saleable HDTV brands in the market. The 8 ms response time can also be decreased to improve the blurring and flickering of the images. However, this response time is good enough to do away with any ghosting in the pictures. The fast-action scenes too can be seen with much more clarity.
The Envision L37W698 features 2 HDMI along with 1 PC input. This allows a lot of high definition devices to be connected. For example, you can connect a camcorder and watch all the recent and old videos you recorded. You can also watch movies on the DVD player. While watching the videos, you won’t be disappointed for want of better viewing angles. The 170 degree viewing angle is good enough if you sit in any part of the room. The multi-function remote is useful while surfing through various channels.
