Sanyo DP42740 Review » Key Feature Ratings
Price The cost of this Plasma TV is $11 per inch of screen size. This is less expensive than average and is priced in the bottom 2% of new TVs.
ENERGY STAR ENERGY STAR qualified. This HDTV uses about 40% less electricity than standard televisions.
Efficiency Estimated annual energy use is 5.1 kWh per inch of screen size. This TV is ENERGY STAR, but it is less efficient than your average ENERGY STAR TV.
Design Incorporates 3 key design features that make a difference. This HDTV has less key features than average and ranks in the bottom 13% of new TV designs.
Best-Seller This TV is not a top best-seller at a national store including Amazon, Best Buy, Sears, and Wal-Mart. - Sanyo DP42740 Review
Resolution Equipped with 720p high-definition resolution. While this is not the highest resolution available, it may be adequate on smaller TVs or if you don't need to connect a PC.
Side Inputs Includes side inputs that allow you to conveniently plug-in some devices without having to reach behind the TV.
LED LED technology is only available on LCD televisions. It is not designed for use on Plasma TVs.
Local Dim Local dimming technology is only available on LCD televisions with LED backlighting.
Frame Rate This TV has a 600 Hz sub-field drive. Plasma TVs have near instantaneous pixel response times and excellent viewing of fast moving video.
THX Like most HDTVs, this is not THX certified. THX generally indicates that the TV will have high-quality picture performance. - Sanyo DP42740 Review
DLNA Not DLNA certified (Digital Living Network Alliance). DLNA promotes interoperability between electronic devices, which makes sharing digital content easier and more convenient.
3D This Sanyo television is not 3D ready. 3D TVs allow you to view 3D content from select video games, Blu-ray discs, and programming, but are much more expensive.
Wi-Fi This Sanyo HDTV is not Wi-Fi capable. You cannot wirelessly connect to your home-based internet network.
Internet Internet access is not available with this TV. You cannot view streaming internet videos, widgets, or applications that are available with many brands.
DVD Player Like most televisions, this Sanyo TV does not have a built-in DVD or Blue-ray player. Most consumers purchase these items separately.
Depth This TV is thicker than average with a depth of 4.3". If you plan to mount it on the wall, you may consider a thinner model. - Sanyo DP42740 Review
Frame Standard, multiple-level design with some space between the screen and the bezel. Single-level designs can provide a seamless look that is preferred by some consumers.
Speakers Speakers are rated at 10 watts of total output power, which is less than average. - Sanyo DP42740 Review
HDMI Only 2 HDMI input(s) is available. One or two HDMI inputs may not be sufficient. Do you need to hook-up a cable box, video game console, DVD player, or PC?
