Element 40" Class 1080p LED HDTV 120Hz, ELEFW402:
16:9 LED panel - With a 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution
40" class screen size - 40" screen measured diagonally from corner to corner
Built-in digital tuner - Watch digital broadcasts, including HDTV programs where available
High brightness of 450cd/m2 with 4 ms response time - Place your TV anywhere
4,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio
HDMI Inputs: 3 - Enjoy a superior HD experience with HDMI one cable solution
Wall mountable - Detachable TV stand allows wall mounting

Strongly considering this one. LED-LCD, 4ms response, 1080P, <$400, 3HDMI

Reviews mention weak speakers, but otherwise its sounds pretty good. I think the shipping is free to home or store.



What do you guys think?

It is either this or one of the 720P Plasmas on Black friday (Samsung 43" Walmart or Panasonic 42" Kmart)

A link and an actual price?

nhenny2005 11-17-2011 08:20 AM

$399.98 for those wondering.


I love how Walmart has manufacturers use model number specifically for use by Walmart so you can't really compare or price match.

luke1218 11-17-2011 08:28 AM

how this one compared to the Westinghouse 42" LED-edgelit 1080p 120Hz Walmart sold for $339.98 a week ago?

Sounds like a good deal but I don't live anywhere near a BB and the specs on sharp's site don't tell the refresh rate, so I ma guessing 60Hz. I really wanted at least a 120Hz.

ogrenator 11-17-2011 08:40 AM

yeah the Sharp is 60hz but its a great 2nd or 3rd tv...I wouldnt get it for a primary..but that price is through the roof

I really dislike when people give thumbs down but don't comment why.

wouldn't surprise me if there are people lining up Tuesday night to try and get one of these.

RichieRich 11-17-2011 08:45 AM

Personally I'd go take a look at it in the store to see the quality of the tv.

The dynamic contrast ratio is terrible for an LED but there are theories out there regarding this.

The plasmas are great but they use up a definitely more energy than an led backlighted monitor and also it's 720p compared to 1080p. Really only makes a difference when watching blu-ray quality movies and full-hd video games.

People will be in line deep frying turkeys and opening cans of cranberry sauce in order to buy that TV.

pennyg 11-17-2011 09:07 AM

I'm (perhaps misguided) under the impression that it was better to get 60Hz refresh rates for the no-name televisions as they generally don't handle multiple refresh rates well. Unless there's an "off" switch for 120Hz, then it's fine.

Originally, I forgot to put the price and link. I added it within 3 minutes, but already had two comments.

BIGFOOT_PI 11-17-2011 10:04 AM

not a good price
westinghouse is better than element and they were just recently @newegg for $370 (http://slickdeals.net/forums/showthread.php?t=3541540)
and the 42" was $339 http://slickdeals.net/forums/showthread.php?t=3517346
and the time machine comments dont apply because my premise is that better or equivilent TVs have been cheaper in last two weeks and as such, a similar and potentially inferior brand TV should go for less this close to black friday

From the site: "Prices May Vary" - cause for concern?

According to the specs, this over 45" in length. That is an unusually long length for a 40" diagonal. Most 40" diagonals are slightly under 40" in length.

I was in walmart the other day and they had a 42in LED Vizeo Razor for $398 also. They had 3 of them to be honest, I would of bought but did not want to deal with getting rid of them.

I didn't give it a thumbs down! FYI. Just was curious.

I think the Vizio Razor are edge LED, not full LED-LCD.

jedipunk 11-17-2011 11:26 AM

"Prices May Vary" is just them saying your local store may have a different price. My walmart never matches walmart.com prices.
