Guide Review - Product Review: Samsung 30" HDTV Monitor TX-P3064W

At first, I wasn't sure what to think of the Samsung 30" HDTV Monitor (TX-P3064W). Was it just a good 'low priced' HDTV monitor or one heck of a TV and true bargain? It has all the basic menu options like picture and audio adjustment, and the menu is easy to navigate. The television has plenty of input/outputs, which is important if you plan on hooking up a DVD player, cable/satellite receiver, video game console, and surround sound speakers. For home video enthusiasts, it also has a side A/V composite input, which most newer televisions feature. Still, it's a good feature, and should be recognized. The only true downside to this television is its size. It weighs around 100 lbs, and is about two feet deep. It's also HD-ready, which means it doesn't have a built-in tuner to receive over-the-air digital/HD signals, but that's not really a big issue if you plan on subscribing to cable or satellite. The 30-inch screen size isn't as enticing as projection models, but it's truly a litle giant as it easily fills a large living room. The benefit of the tube screen is it offers wide viewing angles without much picture deterioration. Listed at prices betweeen $700 and $1,000, the Samsung TX-P3064W is a great television for the family room or bedroom if you are looking for an affordable medium-sized HDTV.
