Sanyo DP19649 Review: 19” LCD HDTV

Up for Review: Sanyo DP19649 LCD TV. Meant for a select audience, who need a second TV in the house to view in the kitchen or small office room, this small 19” TV is a good one to be considered for selection. This HDTV is also fine for people who have a small budget but are interested in viewing high definition programs or for people who live in small homes. It has all the basic features like great picture quality, wonderful video and audio features and an exciting price to match. Available for a mere $220 MSRP, this HDTV is bound to be the favorite of many.

Power consumption is a feature which everybody is seeking to optimize. And like most other HDTVs, the Sanyo DP19649 is also Energy Star compliant. This is sure to save you quite a few dollars on your electricity bills. Besides, it is also eco friendly to have devices which consume less power. The design of the HDTV is at a superior level. It has a sleek black finish like most other models of this brand. A tilted and detachable stand is there which can be removed to hang the HDTV like a picture on the walls.

Sanyo DP19649 Features and Specifications Review:

  • 18.5” widescreen display
  • 16:9 aspect ratio
  • 1366 x 768 pixel resolution
  • 5 ms response time
  • Integrated ATSC/NTSC/QAM Tuner
  • Built-in 1.5-watt Speakers
  • Detachable Tilt Stand
  • Energy Star Compliant
  • 1 x HDMI
  • 1 year limited warranty

The built-in 1.5-watt speakers with MTS/SAP stereo and digital audio leaves a lot to be desired. This HDTV needs to revamp its audio to get a better response in the market. However, it does not compare too badly with other HDTVs in this category. It has an excellent response time of 5 ms which is good for the action sequences. You can now watch the sports action without any trailing or blurring. Movies which feature a lot of action can be viewed with a lot of pleasure too.

There is even 1 HDMI in this small package. Connectivity is helped along with 1 component and 1 composite input. 1 S-video and 1 PC input help while using the HDTV as a computer monitor. There is an absence of a much needed USB port which would have helped view photos from a digital camera. The Sanyo DP19649 is basically a good HDTV for those who are satisfied with the fundamental features only.

HDTVUniverse.com gives Sanyo DP19649 8/10 stars!

One Customer Review for “Sanyo DP19649 Review – 19-inch LCD HDTV”

  1. jakethreesixty's reviewMay 08, 2010

    this tv is a great buy. i use it for gaming on my ps3 with HDMI and it looks gourgeous. it says its a class 720p television, but both it and my ps3 say its outputting in 1080p but i dont really know what that all means.
    also note that the picture they have on this website is the wrong one, it looks nothing like that
    the cons with this tv is that the speakers are tinny and distort when using a lot of bass. so i have my ps3 outputting through rca cables to my stereo. this tv is great for close quarters usage, such as kids bedroom, office, or your hardcore gaming den.
