Our Latest Review: Proscan32LB45Q. This solidly designed 32” HDTV is packed with features such as full 1080p High Definition resolution and a suite of other elements normally expected to be found with more expensive HD television set. Although our reviewers believed that the display and audio quality are not quite as solid as other flagship brands (i.e. Sony, Panasonic, Samsung), this 32 inch set does a more than adequate job, especially when on considers the cost of the set is less than $500.00.
When it comes to value for the money, this Proscan 32LB45Q is a great deal. We liked the televisions display capabilities at 1080p, 1080i, 720p, as well as standard definition 480p. The screen’s ability to produce strong contrasting colors in dark scenes is fairly solid. The set’s uneven backlight was sometimes noticible in darker action sequences. Outside the backlight issue, we liked the 6ms response speed, its ability to produce clear and crisp images regardless of input resolution, and the channel browser feature that allows viewers to quickly review 32 previously viewed channels as well as screen shots from the previous 5 stations.
The Proscan‘s audio capabilities are strong for most regular viewing applications. Consumers who are looking for this LCD to produce HD quality sound should consider purchasing a sound bar or other exterior surround sound audio equipment. This set does provide users with a number of input/output connections, including 2 HDMI ports, 2 component slots, an S-video, AV, antenna, VGA, and audio input, as well as two audio outputs.
We really liked the number of features and the overall quality of this HD LCD set. Other manufactures can’t compete with the Proscan 32LB45Q‘s price in this mid-sized class of televisions. If you can put up with a few minor issues (inconsistent backlight and minor sound quality issues) in exchange for a great price, this television is a decent choice.
