HP LC4776N Reviewed

HP LC4776NThe HP LC4776N is one of the most expensive LCD HDTVs to be released this year from HP. The 47-inch features full HD 1080p resolution for the highest resolution form of HD and follows the common trend of a glossy black frame. The LC4776N has a health three HDMI ports and a bunch of other great features, but as Cnet found out, it has a hard time of maintaining a deep black level and lacks pixel to pixel mapping on some aspect ratios. They say “potential buyers snooping around the rear of the LC4776N will find a solid array of jacks and connections. There are three HDMI ports–three is fast becoming the 2007 norm–two component-video inputs, two AV inputs with composite and S-video, one optical digital audio output, an RF input, and a VGA-style PC input.

Against most other 40-something flat-panel TVs we’ve tested recently, the HP LC4776N falls short of delivering competitive picture quality. Its main problem is an insufficiently deep shade of black, and although its color is relatively accurate, its other picture quality issues are hard to overlook.”
