Almost ALL TVs' "PC port" would only do lower resolution, if you want 1080p on PC, use HDMI or DVI->HDMI !!!!
This question/problem has been asked so many times and has been the source of dumb negative reviews of so many TVs...
If I am designing a TV I'd simply get rid of the stupid D-sub, it does nobody any good.
the specs say that it supports 1920 x 1080 resolution, but when i set my video card the honeywell said "not support". yes, i quoted the broken english verbatim. i waited for the new setting to time out then clicked on the "advanced" button, "monitor" tab, and set the output frequency from my video card to 120 hz. (i had to uncheck the check box that hid the unsupported display modes) the honeywell came back with "not support".
i would have liked to call the 800 number in the manual, but it's after hours, and i'm going to have to wait 'till tomorrow.
i'm not hopeful at all about getting both the advertized resolution and refresh rate, as my video card doesn't support it. the most my display adapter claims is 1920x1080 at 75hz. i set the output to 60hz and 1080X1024 resolution, and i'm getting an excellent picture. it's not crystal clear, as it's netflix. i don't think netflix is broadcasting in hd.
but the one thing that i did notice is that there aren't the artifacts that the samsung has for the blacks. the blacks play wonderfully.
the bottom line is that it's a beautiful display at an excellent price; but this isn't going to be the topic of conversation with honeywell. the topic will be their point blank lies on their specifications sheet and if they are aware that it is against the law to make these false claims.
I like how someone mentioned that 42" LCD/LED 1080p 120Hz TVs were consistently at this price two years ago. Yeah right.
Mine is arriving Monday. Can't wait.
LOL. Mine is arriving on Wednesday! I am worried about the 50 lb weight but I guess that's part of the trade off. I am buying a mount in walmart that can hold 132lbs so weight shouldn't be an issue if I decide to wall mount it. Haven't seen anything on the BF deals that are cheaper than this at 120Hz!!
42", 1080p, 120hz, and $340, this is cheaper than ALL blackfriday deals for over 40", so what is the huge downside?
is it the brand? warranty? can someone please screw my head on straight !
It's the brand. This is my first HDTV so its probably good for my purposes. I can use it later as a TV for guest room etc.. ALso, the return policy says you can only return defective units. So if you don't like it after you receive, no way you can return it.

Ok got the TV and set it up. Manual says it is 29.8 lbs without base. You need M6 screws, I got M6 - 1.00 x 25 screws from Lowes fit perfect, do not go any longer then that.
Energy guide is $24 per year based on 11 cents/kw.
First impressions is very positive, great picture, the TV is actually pretty thin, I was afraid it will be 5-6 inches thick but it is 1.5 inches without stand. I did not adjust anything yet just hang it on the wall and watching whatever Blue ray movie we had.
So far I think good deal IMHO.
Anyway to tell what brand of screen used in it without disassembling it?
