The Polaroid 4241-TLXB is one of the cheapest LCD HDTV’s available in this size range. It has great features like 1080p and simulated surround sound but the contrast ratio of 800:1 is very unappealing. LCD TV’s typically have a lower contrast ratio but this may be a little too low. If you’re not an audio/video junkie and are just looking for a sleek looking flat panel to put in your living room or hang on the wall, the 4241-TLXB is a very attractively priced option. If you’re looking for a superior picture, you may want to invest some more money into a better set or get a smaller size of a better brand.
