32” Sanyo Widescreen LED TV,

  1. It is a 32 inch LED TV with 1366 x 768 pixel HD resolution. It simply means that your screen will not be stretching out extremely or downsized where you see black bars at the right and left side of your TV. You won’t be seeing annoying black spaces when watching High Definition (HD) digital channels.
  2. TV aspect ratio of 16:9 which is the most common aspect ratio among TV sets and is the accepted standard for Full HD and HDTV. And, it is also the widely used High Definition DVD format.  Thus, you get to see what is supposed to be seen when movies are converted into HD-DVDs.
  3. Wide viewing angle of 178 degree horizontal and vertical angles. You can still see a clear picture regardless of your viewing position, whether you are at the far end side of the room.  You can try this when you are still in buying mode. With the help of a sales assistant, turn on the displayed TV and stand beside it at an angle of 178 degrees to view the screen. You can still see crisp and clear images away from the screen at this angle.
  4. It has three (3) HDMI inputs that helps you connect compatible devices on your 32” Sanyo Widescreen LED TV to see uncompressed files and view superior audio-video quality. You can attach gadgets like your laptop, PSP, camera (with HDMI connector) and other gadgets that are HDMI cable connect capable.  It means you can watch the latest Blu-Ray edition of your favorite movie, play from a larger screen with video games, use the LED TV as your computer monitor, and view images from your digital camera as well.

What is There to Like Not About it

Because of its simplicity and compact design, some functions are quite problematic.

  • Each time you replace the cartridge, the software will issue a command prompt to check alignment or test print.  This is time consuming because when you press cancel, the same command prompt will appear every time you print.

A Review on the Coby Kyros Tablet

Coby Kyros is an Android 2.3 tablet available in various online stores with prices starting at $79.99. It features a mini-HDMI output for HDTVs and other compatible devices, a 2.1 MP (mega pixel) camera with front facing shot capacity, and expandable memory storage through Micro SD (up to 32 GB).

The Good Side

You won’t find a lot of tablet PCs with an 8-inch screen display. Most other tablets offer a screen size of 7 inches, which is the average size, or at maximum size of 10 inches. The screen size makes the Kyros unique. The widescreen display is available at an 800 x 480 WVGA resolution. The mini-HDMI output for audio-video connections is a type C which can support 1080p HD videos, audio, and images. There’s also a 3.5 output for headphones with a speaker (situated at the back) and a microphone already integrated within this Coby tablet so external devices are no longer necessary for voice and audio to work.

The internal storage provided is at 4 GB only but it can be expanded up to 32 GB through a micro SD. The Coby Kyros measures 4.8 x 0.5 x 7.5 inches and weighs 14.4 ounces. For a tablet, such a size and weight makes it easy to carry. It also fits bags and jacket pockets easily so you can bring it with you anywhere you go. This makes the Kyros perfect for everyone who is always on the go and surfs the web through public Wi-Fi connections on stores and shops. Aside from Wi-Fi, this tablet also supports hi-speed Internet connection through DSL and other platforms. This is something which other tablets cannot provide and can only do so when you upgrade and pay more.

Coby Kyros is also equipped with over a dozen applications. One of which includes the Aldiko e-book reader which allows you to download and read thousands of e-books for free. You can read on either a landscape or portrait view. The Kyros is able to automatically detect the position of the tablet and adjusts the reading view accordingly.

Another interesting app in the Coby Kyros is the AppsLib which enables you to browse through the AppsLib market and download as well as install apps of choice. This tablet also features other free applications including an alarm clock, calculator, a web browser, email, a music and video player which makes video streaming more convenient through the YouTube browser, and a gallery for images and videos.

Aside from the HDMI port, the Kyros is also built with a high speed USB 2.0 connection for data transfers and battery charging. It’s powered by a rechargeable battery made from lithium polymer.

When it comes to prices, this tablet can be listed amongst the most affordable devices of its kind. Prices start at $79.99 up to a maximum of $200 only.

The Bad Side

Despite affordability, the Kyros is lacking in a few ways. The display screen is overly resistive that you may have to force your way through the stylus (it’s included upon purchase of the device). It also lacks the sensitivity you need when you want to navigate the screen fast. Syncing your files with other devices then takes time. Speaking of time, the battery lasts for a maximum of 6 hours only. Lastly, this Coby model, despite being an Android device lacks a lot of features present in other Android devices including Google services.

Conclusion

You can look at the Coby Kyros in two ways for you to decide whether or not you will buy it: the affordability makes up for what it lacks or being affordable is not excusable for lacking features.
