Sanyo DP50749 Review: 50” Plasma HDTV
Up for Review: Sanyo DP50749 Plasma TV. With a glossy black finish, this HDTV is sure to win a lot of hearts for its attractive looks. And this finish causes it to merge with the background in dimly-lit rooms. And when you have the lights on in full force, the sleek look will make the images look great. The good looks are complemented by a sturdy looking stand which can be taken off and the set can be mounted on the walls. The design of the remote is also good and it makes a perfect fit in the hands.
It has a built-in tuner to relay all free-to-air signals without the need of a separate set top box. The picture quality is good with a display resolution of 720p. This is good enough to view all programs shown on the TV but may not be proper for viewing the movies on a Blu-ray player. The movies certainly look better in 1080p. But you have the option to view 191 channels which is quite a good range of channels. The Sanyo DP50749 has a unique screen saver option which will help to prevent burn-in.
