Picked up mine last night, tested both, one was 100% perfect, the other had a dead pixel in the upper left quadrant but I'm not going to bother with returning it and having to wait 2-3 weeks to turn it around.
I will say they actually have 4 HDMI slots if I remember correctly(just hooked them up for testing temporarily and boxed them back up. This was definitely a nice surprise, picture & viewing angles seemed very good. Excited to get them mounted in my kids rooms, look bulky but are actually pretty light, just thick.

Read the first post here
The first post has three tests you can use to see if you have 4:4:4 enabled. If you dont, then you can do an EDID override on the PC/laptop to change the behavior of the TV.
Here is the guide to enable dot by dot mode in both graphic and video..That is, doing an EDID override..

1/8th of the screen was showing irregular colors. I called, told them it was defective and they handled the situation very well.
I'm being sent a return lable to ship the tv back in. They're sending me the same model tv at the same price and crediting me for the original purchase price + 10% after they receive the TV back.
Comes out to 135 total, not bad!

I just got this monitor and connected it to my PC as monitor. With "video style" set to "graphics" (instead of "video"), it works perfectly. Now here is a problem. If I turn off the tv and turn it back on, though the menu still shows "video style" is "graphic", somehow it displays everything in "video" mode. And I have to change "video style" to "video" and then back to "graphic". Now it is back to normal, until the next time it's turned off again. I don't think it's the PC video card problem - I tried two PCs, one Windows with ATI card, the other Ubuntu Linux with Nvidia card. Both are having the same problem.
It's getting really annoying I have to do this every time I turn off the TV. Wondering anybody else (using this TV as pc monitor) has the same problem? Thinking of returning it...

I got mine a couple of days ago and I set it up with my PC. I bought it for the purpose of using it as a cheap 32 inch PC monitor and it is perfect for that. This RCA TV 32LB45RQ can do 4:4:4 chroma so text looks super sharp. I am using the monitor at about 18 inches to 24 inches from my eyes and it works great. I needed to do an EDID override on my laptop to get the 4:4:4 chroma and dot-by-dot mode and things work just great. I am typing this on my new monitor.. 32 inches for $150? Get out of here..
About the condition. Looks like new. No dead pixels.. Plastic cling stickers everywhere..

I got mine yesterday, and I couldn't be happier. I was worried about dead pixels being a refurb and all but found none. The bezel is larger than it looked, but my picture quality is great with minimal adjustment. Of course I don't use the tuner so i cant comment on the slow channel change.
All in all I feel like I gambled and won, lets just hope for longevity now.

Anyone else get the tv? Picked up...dead pixel (white) almost close to center. All the monitors/tv's I've had, never had to deal with that. Not sure if it will drive me nuts.
Othere than that...it's a cheap tv. Slow to start, no backlight adjustment, pretty slow channel change. Picture with broadcast tv was pretty bad/blockey until I turned off all the dynamic contrast and other advanced picture controls. But all of that I would expect and accept for the price....but that one glaring pixel all time...hmm. Kind of makes me wonder if they don't just pack up the returns to see if someone else will just say "eh" about a screen defect.

Drag, I didn't notice the thing about the bonus points. No the only thing I see in the coupons is a $10 pts for $50 purchase from kmart only.
Did anyone get the points without having the coupon loaded in the account?

|takemethere||does anyone have a screenshot of the 10,000 points offer?|

|Desperadokid||Looks like this deal is long over for $150 (now $169). Is there anyway to change this reality?|
