    A local seller is selling this model for 600$. Is it a good price for the specs and quality?

    Liquid Crystal Display Technology Is The Future Of Television! The Syntax Olevia Is So Breathtakingly Sharp, It's Real!


    One of the newest Olevia models, the LT32HV is a HDTV-ready 32-inch LCD TV, featuring Super-IPS (Super-In-Plane-Switching) technology to provide sharp, vivid digital entertainment images from analog and digital TV signals, DVDs, VHS and video games. The high-end benefits of Super-IPS provide the best display performance with high color saturation, the widest viewing angles, sharpest images, best response times and the minimum amount of color shift and distortion from any angle.

    Highlights of the LT32HV include 178 degree expanded viewing angles that give excellent picture quality from any room location, exceptional 1200:1 dynamic contrast ratio, high resolution of 1366 x 768 (WXGA), 8ms response times to display rapidly-moving images with smooth transitions that eliminate ghosting effects, 800 cd/m2 high brightness, and a 16:9 cinema-style widescreen aspect ratio with automatic progressive scan. Dual built-in NTSC TV tuners display split screens and Picture-in-Picture. The LT32HV also features the newly-designed, stunningly-attractive black and charcoal bezel to frame the space-efficient LCD TV that can be wall mounted using an optional VESA-standard mounting kit. Furthermore, the LT32HV features a patent pending rear panel AV Lamp for best visibility when accessing the rear inputs.
