Sanyo DP46849 Review: 46” LCD HDTV
Up for Review: Sanyo DP46849 LCD TV. This is an upgraded version of the Sanyo DP46848 and carries all the basic features available in the older version. The 46” display has a resolution of 1080p which makes for great picture quality and high definition graphics. 1080p is the order of the day and movies can be seen in their original quality. It also makes playing games with a gaming console an exciting affair. Although the price is bound to go up with 1080p but it is worth paying a few extra dollars to see the effects. However, it does not affect most of the television programs which are still displayed in 720p.
The audio receives a great impetus with built-in 10 watt speakers and MTS/SAP stereo. The digital audio is flawless and gives a good effect in closed rooms. In the video department, the Sanyo DP46849 scores highly with 6.5 ms response time. This helps to clear artifacts and blurring in the images. The fast action sequences can be seen without any hitches. This HDTV also has an aspect ratio of 16:9 like most other brands.

The glossy black look is common to most models of Sanyo and contributes to the good looks of the set. It also has a tilted but removable stand which can be removed to mount the HDTV on the walls. The set looks good whether kept on the stand or mounted on the walls. Another alluring aspect of this HDTV is its compliance with Energy Star requirements. You can keep your electricity bills in check because of the low consumption of power.
As far as connectivity is concerned, there are several options including the presence of 3 HDMI. Connecting with high definition devices becomes a cinch and you can now connect camcorders, gaming consoles and Blu-ray players to the HDTV. Other inputs include 2 component and 1 composite inputs and the extremely useful USB port and PC input. Watching photos from the digital camera becomes a pleasure as also the use of this HDTV as a computer monitor. With an MSRP of $960, the Sanyo DP46849 is perfect for those who want a reasonably large HDTV for a small price.
