Up for Review: Sanyo DP52449 LCD TV. This 52-inch display looks great with a glossy black finish. The black color helps the TV to fuse with the dim lights of the room and look like an all picture display. The bright lights help focus on the aesthetics of the display. The detachable stand helps to stabilize the HDTV and this can also be taken off to mount the TV on the walls. The size is sure to make the HDTV more than just a moving picture on the walls.

Connectivity is quite up to the mark like in most of the other HDTVs of today. There are 3 HDMI along with 2 component video inputs and 1 composite video input. The coaxial digital audio output brings in the best audio by connecting to the home theater receiver amplifier system. You will be happy to know that this set can be used as a computer monitor also because of the presence of a PC input. Photo viewing can also become a pleasure with the USB port helping access to digital cameras.
