4-0 out of 5 stars Very cool, but requires patience and a high GeekQ
As many other reviewers have stated, this device is really cool. Essentially for the same price as the Apple iPod 20GB, you get Video, too!

BUT... RCA was clearly not ready to release this thing. You have to be fairly A/V and computer saavy to fully use this thing. First, you have to update the firmware and the software that came with the unit. Then you have to figure out how to dump video to this sucker. You could always encode off of the line-in, but that's too pedestrian. Most of us want to capture video - in my case from a TV tuner card - and dump the TV show or clip to the Lyra for later viewing.

The problem is you can't do this with the software that comes with the unit!

So I went and bought a fairly inexpensive package, Roxio's VideoWave, and tried to create my shows. Still no good, because until they update the firmware to support the widely available codecs, you *MUST* encode in AVI format such that the audio is MP3 and the video is either MPEG-4 SP (standard profile) or DivX. I only have MPEG-4 Version 1-3 codecs on my brand new box.

Luckily, you can save yourself a lot of time and hassle by just going to the following site and downloading the *FREE* DivX codec: http://www.divx.com

Now everything works fine, and I only spent about $50 for the additional software, which will be useful anyway for creating videos.

If you already have capture software, the only thing you have to watch out for is to make sure you can specify the audio compression algorithm (MP3) when creating an AVI. Some (many?) packages simply use uncompressed PCM audio, and that won't play on the Lyra! Besides, it will make you AVI file substantially smaller if you compress the audio.

5-0 out of 5 stars DONT WAIT, GET IT NOW !!!!!
The first RCA LYRA portable to incorporate video playback, the palm-sized 20GB RD2780 RCA LYRA Audio/Video Jukebox delivers a complete digital entertainment experience in the palm of the hand. About the size of a small picture frame with a 3.5-inch Thin Film Transistor (TFT) LCD screen, the RCA LYRA Audio Video Jukebox also acts as a computer storage device, compatible with multiple audio and video codecs, and can be easily connected to most standard television sets. Measuring a compact 5.2 x 3.14 x 0.98 inches, the versatile RD2780 can play mp3, mp3PRO and Windows Media Audio files.

"Adding video functionality to the digital audio product line is a natural progression for us as we continually seek ways to expand our consumer base and add value," said Redmond. "The RCA LYRA Audio/Video Jukebox is designed to go beyond the digital enthusiast audience and attract both young consumers and frequent travelers looking for an easily portable entertainment source that will deliver hours of entertainment."

Consumers can watch up to 80 hours of pre-recorded television shows, feature films, or home videos directly on the RD2780. It easily connects to a television set via its composite video output and includes both audio and video recording mode. Since the device is essentially a computer peripheral with a hard drive, the display screen can also be used to organize digital audio song files or other types of stored data, including computer files such as word processing documents and presentations. The RCA LYRA Audio/Video Jukebox is also a portable photo album, since JPEG images can be viewed on the RD2780, by either transferring them directly from the PC using a USB 2.0 high-speed connection or by inserting a Compact Flash memory card. The vast hard drive in the RCA LYRA Audio/Video Jukebox can accommodate up to 100,000 JPEG images.

Using the enclosed MusicMatch management software, users can also organize hundreds of hours of mp3 audio files using ID3 tag song data to display artist, album, song title and genre. Music fans can listen to their collection of mp3 files using one of nine playback modes, including normal play, shuffle and repeat, or by programming their own playlists. While listening to music files, the user can also navigate through the library and "tag" songs he or she would like to hear later, or delete from the device.

Other convenience features include auto resume, which "remembers" the track location and volume setting when the power was shut off, and returns to that same spot when the power is returned. Adding to the overall value of the RD2780 are the included AC/DC adapter, e.clipzä clip-style stereo headphones, an audio/video patch cable, carrying pouch and recharge cradle. The RD2780's car kit provides hours of audio entertainment through a cassette adapter. The RD2760 can play for up to 15 hours with its Lithium Ion rechargeable battery

5-0 out of 5 stars iPod + Lyra
I have an iPod Mini and i love it but it only plays music!!! Yet I still love it. I am thinking about buying this item because it look and seems better then the Archos and you can recorde video + dvds to this. So i would get this product over the Archos because im going to italy in april and i want somting to keep me occupied (for 7 houres) oh ya i also have a portable DVD player but it is way WAY to big so if your thinking about getting a portable dvd player over this dont unless your just going to use it for 1-2 houres at a time. <br />

4-0 out of 5 stars 2nd thought
Ok, here is the scoop with this thing: I've had this device for about 6 months. About 3 months ago I wrote a review about how good this is. That is until yesterday I decided to load 2000 more mp3's to the +-900 I already had. Man! Was that a mistake or what? When I try to listen to them now, the A/V Jukebox will froze and takes forever to start. Does anybody else have the same problem? If that situation keeps on going I am afraid that my first rating of 5 is going to be degraded to 3 because it certainly does what it says will do, but it does it wrong!!!!
Note:
Ok guys, I found out the reason why it was freezing: When you make a folder that contains more than 300 mp3's, it takes the device a long time to locate the files. What I had to do was split those folders into smaller ones and that way it takes less time to locate the songs. Of course RCA does not say any of this on their user manual. Shame on them!!

5-0 out of 5 stars the rca lyra is perfect for travellers
The RCA Lyra is so niuce to use, it is very easy and so portable that you can fit it in pretty much any pocket. The RCA Lyra can easily have enoug battery to power a video play back for up to four hours with the new free update which you can download from rca.com and I havent even gone far enough to see when it died when listening to music. Its perfect for travellers who get bored on an annoying trip. the only problem is that it pixelates with dark colors.... but its not that bad !!!!! ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

RCA's 52-inch-diagonal D52W20 widescreen HDTV monitor gives you a smooth, filmlike image when used with a progressive-scan DVD player (or 480p-output DTV set-top box). This projection set includes the latest connectivity: a DVI input with HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection), which allows transmission of uncompressed digital video signals from an HDTV set-top box (not included) to the D52W20.

Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, creates a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional DVD picture, giving you higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts. Both of the set's high-definition (1080i/480p) component-video inputs benefit from the Syncroscan system, which automatically performs high-resolution pixel mapping from sources up to SXGA resolution. The resulting screen image has excellent clarity from the highest-resolution sources.

Intellifocus auto digital convergence is a menu-accessible feature that automatically optimizes convergence for the sharpest picture possible. The D52W20's 3D Y/C digital frame comb filter further enhances resolution by removing blurred edges between colors and reducing dot crawl (tiny, moving dots of color along a sharp color separation in a vertical line). A dedicated subwoofer output lets you hook up a powered subwoofer (no audio/video receiver required) to beef up the low-end for home-theater thumping. Virtual Dolby simulates surround sound from the set's stereo speakers. ... Read more

  • 52-inch diagonal widescreen HDTV monitor; 48.75 x 51.75 x 22.75 inches (W x H x D)

4-0 out of 5 stars Stylish set , very good picture at a great price
I bought the RCA D52W15, which is essentially the D52W20 without the screen shield. The price, quality of picture and overall style were the selling points for me. Normally I would buy a Sony or other Japanese brand well known for quality, but this set just looked better than any others I had seen. The cabinet styling has a very slim look. Many sets looked big and blocky from the front as well as the backs being made with particle-board where the RCA is build like the DPL receivers using light but sturdy looking plastic. I noticed also that every set with a screen shield (just about all) was reflecting the lights of the showroom where the RCA has the mat finish (D52W15 only) and barely reflected any room lighting giving a better picture without distraction. I don't have kids or pets living in the house so I'm not worried about the screen being damaged. I am very happy so far with the performance and look in my home. As of this writing I have had it a little over a month. I bought a service contract, With a large purchase like this and being an RCA, I don't want to take chances. I have experimented with the settings and have gotten satisfaction in viewing even poor quality video. I notice even on the same stations some shows look stunning while others look poor and out of focus, so it's not the TV. I am sure the more expensive HDTV sets have more features for setting the picture parameters, but I find this set has enough to get great viewing. I find the "Cinerama" screen format is best for most 3:4 ratio broadcasts where you want the whole screen filled with least distortion on the edges. I find when watching widescreen DVDs, to eliminate black bars still seen because of being filmed in a non standard aspect ratio, I use the "16:9 up/down" mode and center the picture and loose very little picture while filling my whole screen. I hate seeing black or grey bars. I have set the contrast down to about 35%, it will save on CRT phosphor wear and then juggling color and black levels it looks better to me than the factory settings that tend to be over saturated in most cases. The audio is good, but It doesn't matter, being I am hooked up to a good A/V receiver with surround sound. Even commercials sound and look good.

2-0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for...
At first I thought the RCA D52W20 was an excellent purchase, but over the next few days of ownership I started to notice the many, many flaws that ultimately led to my returning this product after 20 days and buying a Samsung instead.

In order of importance, the significant problems with this set are:

1) The screen edge regions did not produce a sharp image.
2) The convergence needed to be adjusted twice daily as there was a marked drift on both the blue and red projectors.
3) There is only 1 (center) manual convergence point. Similar sets from Sony, Toshiba, etc give you 9 points to adjust.
4) Ghost streaks appeared to the right of bright objects in high contrast situations.

This being said, the RCA generally produced a "good" picture, and who really watches the edge of the screen anyway, right? ;-)

Bottom line - this set is available at a discount price, but it also delivers discount quality.

4-0 out of 5 stars So far so good
I just had my TV arrive last week. So far I couldn't be happier. The picture is ok in regular mode and the HDTV picture is outstanding. The look of the TV is very sleak and modern. It has some cool features like PIP and push button recording to your VCR (I have tivo so I wouldn't use that feature). All in all I'm very happy with the TV. Also, I paid just $1050 for it on sale at Circuit City. I think it was mismarked. Can't beat that deal! I just hope it proves to be reliable in the long term.

4-0 out of 5 stars Satisfied
I love our new TV. It's freakin' HUGE, the picture and sound are fantastic. The HDTV channels we get are in another league. I was watching the NCAA tourney last night and it was so crisp you could have sworn you could reach right in and pick up the teeny players. We LOVE LOVE LOVE it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Technical Support Stinks
Bought my TV in May. Loved owning it. Then it broke. Found out picture tube had a design flaw in it that allowed fluid to slowly leak onto the circuit board. Turned it on one day and the whole thing just popped and turned off. Circuit board shorted out frying most of the interior. It has been 2 months now and still haven't gotten it fixed. Not the repair guys fault. Thomson Electronics, who is the maker, is taking forever to replace the parts. My repair guy who was recommended by Thomson, said I should just try and get a new TV since most of the parts need to be replaced. Thomson doesn't like that idea. They say it
is not their policy. Got off the phone today. May take another 10 days before they even find one of the parts. I will never recommend or buy a Thomson product again. By the way I think they make RCA and Proscan as well. They also settled a class action law suit two years ago in Minn. regarding faulty picture tubes.

4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty nice mini-DAP
The Good Stuff
- Small dimensions, average build-quality
- Shiney, polished-metal style materials (plastic, actually)
- 5Gb MicroDrive
- 5-way joystick plus a mechanical wheel-scroller for zooming quickly through lists
- Charges over USB
- Color screen (not TFT, the duller type)
- File/Folder browsing AND iD3 based browsing (Artist, Album, Track, Genre, Year, etc)
- Profiling (can scan tracks and self-databased iD3-tag info like Rio Carbon, no software required)
- View photos
- 5-band custom EQ
- Choose MSC or MTP complient in the Settings Menu. First time we've seen this ability. Might as well stick with the Mass Storage Complient option unless you're a big fan of WMP10
- Damn near gapless MP3 playback
- Power output (volume) is very strong, like 50 steppings
- Includes a protective case with belt clip and AC adapter (you don't get these with an iPod anymore)
- Includes Sennheiser MX400 earbuds which are a lot better than you usually get for freebies

The Bad
- No dedicated play controls, use the joystick instead
- Color screen is small (1-inch), colors are washy
- No FM radio or recording
- Can't view photos and listen to music at the same time
- Battery life doesn't seem that great so far, like old iPod Minis
- case does not have cut-outs for controls or screen

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome, well-designed little player
I'm a fanatic...I normallly do alot of research before buying anything...I looked at the Creative Zen, mini-IPOD etc. Then I came across this beauty by chance on Amazon, released at the start of April. It is incredible..very light and tiny, beautiful clear screen, user-friendly software, great sound. The earphones included are terrible but thats pretty normal for this sort of purchase. Everyday use is childs-play, uploading songs is quick and easy. Controls are perfect too and well-designed.

I took a chance and bought this without any real knowledge of its reliability..so far so good..dropped it already and no problems. Also comes with a handy case.

Most of my friends have mini IPODs...I was tempted to join the masses...but everyone agrees this jukebox is superior...and its far nicer to look at..the aluminium finish is superb, though it does get smudged easily. I am a very proud owner so far. Added addition is ability to look at photos.

Be brave and buy this...you will not be disappointed!!!

3-0 out of 5 stars Man I wish someone would review this item
If you go to the RCA web site it says nothing about the following features. -------Composite Video Output
Composite video output allows you to display video images on your TV set.

------Audio and Video Recording Mode
Records from analog input source to mp3 format. Records from analog video input to MPEG-4 format.

------Compact Flash (Type 1) Slot
Transfers audio, video or any file type to HDD. View pictures directly from digital camera's compact flash card.

I hope it has all of these fetures because I think I'm buying it. Even without them it looks like a great player. Somebody please write a review on this product. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

RCA's LCDS2022B high-definition, ultra-slim LCD monitor receives high-quality digital television signals in 600 progressive-line SVGA resolution with a lightening-fast 16-millisecond response time. It has a small footprint, measuring less than 3 inches deep, and a stylish satin black/silver finish.

The LCDS2022B offers such video features as a 4:3 aspect ratio, SVGA display resolution (800 x 600 pixels), 3:2 pulldown cinema video processing for a smooth theaterlike experience, and a 4-H digital comb filter that separates signals and reduces the interference generated by the interlacing of analog signals.

The 500 cd/m2 (candela per square meter) brightness with a 500:1 contrast ratio adds life to your images and makes even the dullest pictures appear bright and sharp. A 160-degree viewing angle makes it possible to get the full picture whether you are standing, sitting, or lying on the floor.

It has a built-in 181-chanel NTSC tuner that receives MTS and SAP stereo broadcasts. The LCDS2022B has 2 built-in speakers with 6 watts of power apiece and controls for bass, treble, and balance. It includes a headphone jack on the side. In addition to the common composite and S-inputs, a PC D-Sub (VGA) input is able to receive digital component Y Pr Pb signals through an included adapter.

Tech Talk
LCD: A liquid crystal display (LCD) is an alphanumeric display using liquid crystal sealed between two pieces of glass. The display is divided into hundreds or thousands of individual dots, which are charged or not charged, reflecting or not reflecting external light to form characters, letters, or numbers. LCDs such as those used on computer screens use fluorescent or other light sources to illuminate the screen (usually from the back or the side).

Aspect ratio: The aspect ratio refers to the shape of the video image. Standard television has a 4:3 aspect ratio, which is almost square in appearance. Digital television will have either a 4:3 or 16:9 aspect ratio, which is widescreen and appears rectangular, looking more like a movie screen and filling more of the viewer's field of vision for a more lifelike viewing experience.

What's in the Box
LCDS2022B 20-inch LCD TV, remote control, 2 AAA batteries, 15-pin D-sub to component-video cable adapter, 3.5mm mini phone to audio cable adapter (for use with audio-in/audio-out jack), power cord, AC power adapter, and printed operating instructions. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Don't get too much ideas
I'm shopping for a simple monitor. That's all. Nothing more. Just something that can simply show a picture, an image, a movie. Beware, this model can be connected to a PC or a DVD player but with only one connector. You'll need an adaptor to plug a DVD player through the PC input (RGB or D-Sub 15 pins). Good thinking RCA. What if I need to connect a DVD AND A PC ???
Better think twice before getting this one. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

A perfect road or home DVD/CD player for kids and other entertainment-hungry souls, RCA's BLD774 offers MP3 file playback and a choice of stereo speakers or dual headphone jacks. Its seven-inch widescreen (16:9 aspect ratio) LCD comes with a clear protective cover and renders high-contrast images even in outdoor light. RCA has carefully designed this unit for interior car safety and hours of viewing enjoyment for your passengers (not to mention the peace and quiet you'll love).

Its lightweight design (approximately 9 pounds) and built-in handle makes it a welcome travel partner, and its offers easy seatbelt pass-through for secure placement in vehicles using standard rear-seat center belts. The unit features a collapsing screen with a "drop-forward" LCD panel. The interior and driver-facing panel cluster are backlit for quick access, but without distraction. All audio/video cables, including headphone jacks, exit the unit conveniently behind the view screen, again preventing terminal plugs from facing toward viewers.

The MobileFlex slot-loading disc system and transport are designed to withstand most road vibrations, even during play. The motorized disc-loading slot reduces the threat of dust, dirt, and spills, and the vacuum-load design also eliminates sharp edges and accidental breakage that occur with low-cost CD drawers during travel. Additionally, both the unit's DC transformer and AC step-down housing are built-in, allowing connecting cables to be sleek and easy to use--there' no heavy, bulky "wall wart" at the end of the AC cord, just a UL-approved two-prong connector.

The BLD774 includes standard audio and video outputs (composite-video, stereo analog RCA audio) for easy playback through compatible larger TVs, and the unit can play when its built-in screen is either up or down (closed and off). A special expansion AV output allows hookup of an additional video screen with audio to be added as an option--it even channels DC current to the second screen. The player comes with a car cigarette-lighter DC power adapter and a built-in storage compartment.

Last but certainly not least, the unit includes stereo AV input terminals to allow stereo game units, camcorders, and other devices to be connected and pass signals through to the built-in speakers or to the stereo headphone jacks.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product
Easily the best mobile DVD player you can buy for the car, short of having an expensive professional system installed.

This unit is also safer than those "in a bag" portable DVD players, which hang on the back of the seat. Imagine what would happen in a car accident with one of those. I wouldn't want to be sitting behind it.
The RCA rests on the seat, and is buckled in with the seatbelt, a much better (and safer) design.

The only downside is there is no battery, but if you are using this for the car, or for a hotel room, you simply don't need one.

4-0 out of 5 stars Could use resume play after power outage
This is a nice LCD DVD player. I like the fact that this operates in DC and AC modes without bulky power adaptors. The cables and remote neatly hide in the small storage compartment. My kids figured out the operation with zero help from me.

The only feature I'd like to see is the ability to resume playback after a power outage. The 12V power plug in my car cuts out when I start the car. Unfortunately, the DVD player insists on starting all over again. This is only a small inconvenience since we use this player primarily for long trips.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Item;poor sound;great customer service
Pros:
Excellent video quality
Very Compact
Nice Features
Supurb costomer service

Cons:
Very poor sound (must
buy headphones to use)

All in all this is an excellent item. The Sound quality is so poor, that I couldnt use this item until I bought a pair of good head phones. The Costomer service at Amazon.com was the best Ive ever seen. The first unit that was sent to me had a problem with the screen(which should be bigger, it was innefective at this size). The LCD display would not light correctly on one side of the screen, so I sent an email to Amazon.com's costomer service center, and right away(within the next day) I revieved and answer. They said it would be fine, to just send them the deffective player, and they would send out a new one(checked over personally by them) ASAP. And I guess they did, because the new item arrived within the next week. Orrigionally I wasnt supposed to recieve the player for another two weeks, so all in all, I recieved the second, working one, before it was predicted that I would get the first one. THANK YOU AMAZON.COM. If you order this product from Amazon.com you will be amazed by the quality of the product and service. ... Read more

Using a library of computer-generated identification tags to identify digital audio files by title, artist, album, year, genre, and track number, the SmartTrax file-management system can "read" song data from your recordable CDs, letting you view song data and create playlists at the touch of a button. SmartTrax can read the song data even before the song is played. A three-line dot-matrix display shows SmartTrax data and allows 30-track/folder programmability. Other playback features include Digital Bass Boost Surround, three preset equalization settings, and a hold switch to prevent unintended interruptions in playback. The unit operates for approximately 20 hours on two AA batteries, either alkalines or rechargeables (no batteries included).

4-0 out of 5 stars Fine product for casual user
I noticed some of the lower rated reviews seem to be from "audiophile" types who claim to be able to distinguish small nuances in sound quality. To my 52 year old ears, this player has very good sound, and it's quite loud enough, thank you. (I also happen to think that the clip-on earphones are quite comfortable.)

The anti-skipping function is first rate, and there are a lot of good features for the price. It boots up an MP3 CD quite a bit faster than another player I tried, and it succeeded in playing a disk that the other player would not play. The one irritation is that there is no "off" button. Instead, you have to push the "home" button twice.

3-0 out of 5 stars Somewhere between heaven and hell
I bought this cd player to replace my broken philips cd player because i broke the screen. At first the rca was good until i was using for 5 hours straight and the batteries died.My philips lasted at least 10 hours.The other reason i dont like it because any slight touch of the slide it pops right open. Last I hate the color. Other than those reasons the anti-skip is good,mp3 cds load fast, no promblems so far.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great CD/MP3 Player, Great Price
I don't understand about these other reviwers. My CD player works great. Reads my burnt CDs quickly and my MP3 discs are loaded in a snap. Great sound the headphones it comes with are great. If you turn the volume up full volume you can hear it across the room. Great anti-skip. EQ settings. I have a RCA Sterero with the same EQs on it and it great on my sterero and my portable cd player. My only bad thought about it is the Music Match software. You can burn MP3s really fast. The thing is when you want to take songs of of the disc or add some it says that you have to be a monthly subscriber to it. So does Real Player. Haven't figured out how to burn MP3s on Media Player though. All and all great CD/MP3 Player. I would buy another CD/MP3 player from RCA. They make some great stuff.

1-0 out of 5 stars Useless Garbage
I bought this unit because of it's purported MP3 features and also the price was right and I liked the design. The player has great sound -- WHEN IT WORKS. I bought one during the Christmas holiday and in less than a week had to return it for a replacement because the thing would not play even on fresh batteries. Ok, no problem, was willing to try again. Well, I had the same problem after less than a month.
Not to mention this junk player eats up batteries like candy. I'm lucky if I get 8 hours out of it before the player refuses to read discs, even if the battery indicator only is short one bar. Further, I get error messages saying "door open" when the door is securely shut, and it takes several minutes to "read" the file system of my MP3's. Adding insult to injury, the least little bump will make the player shut off or freeze in the middle of playing, starting the whole long start-up process again. This is totally unacceptable and RCA should definitely recall this product. Thankfully the player comes with a one year warranty, so this sucker is definitely getting shipped back to the manufacturer.

1-0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY THIS!! ITS A JUNK!!
If I could have given this item 0 stars that's what I would have done. I purchased this item to replace my old RCA cd player that was skipping like crazy when I went out on my morning walks. So I liked the fact that this had MP3 so I could put more songs on one disk and then it also had Electronic Skip protection so I could actually hear the entire song. Well the first day I was thrilled, everything worked great. The next day it started skipping because the batteries were dying. Mind you I only walk half an hour a day and this was only the second day. Then all of a sudden the entire unit just shut off. It did this to me numerous times within the next few days. I was just walking along and the whole thing just shut off for no reason at all. I thought maybe I pressed something as I was walking, so I took it out of the case and held it in my hand, I pressed nothing and it just shut off again. I had enough and returned it to the store, then I went to a completely different store and bought it again. I thought okay maybe it was just that one that was messed up. Wrong!! The same exact problems, it would just shut off in the middle of the song with fresh new batteries. I was so upset I took it back and now I am on here trying to find another cd player to replace it. I was completely dissapointed. There is definitely something wrong with this model. I bought if for the skip protection, sure it doesn't skip but at least my other cd player actually let me hear the song! I also agree with the other posts about hearing the electric noise in the background. I will never by another RCA cd player again. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome little player
I needed a LCD monitor in my van for the kids to watch dvds for long trips. I was going to buy a monitor alone and connect it to a stand alone dvd player, but when I saw this one with a dvd player built in I thought that I could use it anywhere. You can disconnect the battery if you want to. you can plug in the ac/dc plug in home, or 12v car power adapter for the car. It's very light and very/very! solid, (no plastic).
The bottom where the battery plugs in is actually the same size as a tripod shoe screw so you can mount it to a tripod. It has digital/optical outs and video/audio in/outs for video games. You can reverse the image if you want to mount the unit upside down. (tripod mount) like what I've done on my vans ceiling.
The only thing you need to remember is that unlike other dvd players this doesn't have a lid to protect the screen. But it does come with a nice protective bag. For transporting and a case to hang from your cars headrest.
A+ It's really a nice unit. Buy one NOW. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Chances are there's one or two places at home where you'd love to enjoy music without having to go to the trouble of laying the speaker wire (or drilling the holes) to get it there. And, short of strapping on a pair of headphones, your options are pretty limited. Fret no more: The WSP150 wireless powered speaker system from RCA lets you import music from CD, radio, DVD, or virtually any audio source to nearly any room in the house--the range is about 150 feet, even through most walls and floors.

The WSP150 uses the FM (frequency-modulation) technique employed in radio to transmit audio to the two speakers, each of which houses its own 2-watt amplifier. The speakers each offer a roll-on power/volume switch and a tone control/bass boost button.

The system comes with two main parts: the transmitter and the speakers, all of which require close proximity to an AC outlet, unless you opt to battery-power the speakers--perfect for outdoor use in nice weather (requires four D batteries per speaker, not included). The transmitter plugs into a wall outlet and hooks into your desired audio source via a single stereo minijack-to-RCA cable (supplied). Be aware that with no master balance knob, the two speakers must be manually adjusted for equal volume.

What's in the Box
A transmitter, two stereo speaker/receivers, two DC power adapters (6V, for speakers), one DC power adapter (19V, for transmitter), an 8-inch Y cable adapter (.125-inch minijack to two RCA-type plugs), user's manual, and warranty information. ... Read more

Features

  • 900 MHz wireless speakers invisibly connect with virtually any audio source
  • Compact size is ideal for bookshelf, kitchen, and home office
  • Convenient volume, tone, and tuning controls
  • Transmits stereo signals up to 150 feet through walls and floors; for use in the home or outdoors (not weatherized)
  • Use with optional D batteries for complete portability

3-0 out of 5 stars Medium success
I bought these to use as rear channel surround speakers after reading the positive and negative customer reviews. The biggest caveat I have is that I expected traditional speaker wire connections and found, upon opening the box, the connection is either through the headphone jack or via RCA connectors (red/white). Neither option provides the channel separation for them to be used as I intended. They are easy to install, but we have a 900MHz cordless phone and a baby monitor and there are static bursts that pop into the speakers intermittently. When dialed in, they provide decent sound for the money. We're going to hang on to them and try them out on the deck next summer.

1-0 out of 5 stars Poor Sound, Can't be used as surround
Ok, here is the deal...these cannot be used as true surround sound speakers. They plug into the headphones jack and don't send a delayed signal. The delayed signal in dolby surround sound is what makes the Top Gun jet zoom behind you or in a 360 degrees..etc......
They sounded pretty lame as well. I don't know why other's had problems setting them up...it really wasn't that hard....you just adjust the signal.
I'd stay away from these unless you are desperate. Spend the extra $100 and upgrade.

5-0 out of 5 stars review for: RCA WSP150 900 MHz Wireless Speakers
I work in an industrial area with many sources of radio waves and
electrical connections. These speakers work as advertised and I have had no problems what so ever. The actual hook up to the television was very simple and I am very pleased with this product.

4-0 out of 5 stars Find a refurbished set and save BIG $
I researched a bit and found these speakers on a popular auction website for $39.98 shipped to my door. They were advertised as "open-box", but are actually refurbished by the manufacturer with all the paperwork and accessories. While setting them up, they seemed a bit tempermental with the line level RCA outputs on my system. Fortunately, I have about a half-dozen possible outputs at my disposal, and I was able to find a happy medium using a splitter on my cable box digital audio outputs. The results are excellent. The range and sound quality is better than I expected, and this product is a real bargain at the price I paid. Do your homework and be patient with the setup and they will pay off for you.

3-0 out of 5 stars Simple Setup...So/So Sound
I just received my wireless speakers, and spent about 13 seconds setting them up. They certainly pick up sound when its being broadcast from my PC. Problem is, I can't just leave them on when they're not receiving. There's a slight static, similar to a baby monitor, that can be annoying. So, I'm forced to turn them on and off manually. The sound is ok...not very loud. But, if you're just looking for an easy solution to portable speakers, I'd say go for it. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Now you can cook and watch your favorite programs at the same time. This kitchen TV is compact and features an attractive exterior to fit in with almost any kitchen decor. You can stand the TV on the counter, or a swiveling, under-cabinet mounting bracket allows you to conveniently store your TV.

The RCA has V-chip parental control whereby program rating information is sent by the broadcaster before the beginning of each program. It blocks unwanted television broadcasts with U.S. government-required circuitry. The V-chip blocks three types of programs: regular television programs, broadcast movies, and unrated programs. The television will match program rating to user preference and block the entire program. User preference is secured using a four-digit password. Also, the front panel locks, so small children cannot adjust the volume and channel.

An auto cable and air switch sets tuner to cable or "off-air" frequencies during initial setup. Then the system automatically scans for and locks active channels into channel memory.

A sleep timer automatically turns off the TV after a preset period--for the times when you drift off to sleep in front of the television. With an alarm timer, you can wake up to your favorite morning show, or it can turn on your television automatically and catch your favorite program. Since the alarm setting remains in the TV memory indefinitely, the TV can be scheduled to turn on at the same time every day.

The corresponding remote has a protective plastic cover so you can easily wipe it clean. On-screen displays make it easy to adjust most picture, sound, and convenience features from the remote control.

The TV comes with a headphone jack (headphones not included) and a warranty that covers 90 days for labor and one year for parts (two years for picture tube).

5-0 out of 5 stars Great set.perfect for the kitchen.
This TV has a sharper picture than my 32" Sony wega.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great 9 inch TV
I bought this as a Christmas present for my wife 4 years ago because she likes to watch Oprah while getting supper ready and she likes to listen to National Public Radio on Saturday mornings. And this wonderful television comes with an FM tuner, so we had the best of both worlds. The picture is clear and sharp. The sound is crisp and clean. And my wife has used this TV practically every single day we have been home for the past four years and it still works great.

One thing we did notice, though, is that once in a while when you turn the TV on, it will take up to ten seconds for the volume and picture to come on. We're not sure why this is. It only started happening recently. Yet I still recommend this 9 inch TV if you are looking for something small that will fit on your kitchen counter or on a large bedroom/bathroom vanity, and especially if it is important for you to have the FM radio option, because many TVs do not have it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Old model was good, new model is great.
I owned the prior model, which was a pretty good set but had some nagging flaws (buttons often broke, pushing the wrong button reset the picture to 'baseline', which was awful). This set has flush buttons that are water resistant, the picture is good every time, and even the automatic (when muted) closed-captioning is useful. The FM tuner is gone, but it wasn't that good anyway. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars This headphones really suck !
I liked one of its feature that using normal AA battery instead of rechargeble battery because I know the annoying charging process for built in charger and rechargeable battery.
I would rather buy separate rechargeable battery kit, not built in, for saving money because those batteries stays even longer and easy to charge and more cheaper.

Most terrible feature of this headphone is auto power-off function to save power. Problem is that only transmitter which is get power from AC adapter has this auto power-off function and the headset which is using battery doesn't. What a nonsense! Also, whenever the transmitter turned to power-off mode, the noise from headset almost destroy my eardrums. What a waste of power. The auto power-off mode happens to frequently and errortically. Whenever the cd player end, whenever a mp3 file end, whenever the music get to small, the transmitter turns to auto power-off mode and make big noise. Almost drives me mad. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

RCA's RTD255 complete home theater system plays all your movies, music, and even your digital photo CDs. It comes with a 5-disc, progressive-scan DVD/CD player integrated with a high-power surround-sound receiver and a multichannel speaker system--everything you need to play, amplify, and enjoy your digital entertainment. (A television is not included.)

The system's central unit merges a DVD/CD player and audio/video surround receiver. The disc player spins DVDs and CDs, from standard audio discs to recordable CDs filled with MP3 music files or JPEG digital photos. The receiver powers the supplied 5.1-channel speaker system (front and rear left/right, center speaker, and passive subwoofer) with 55 watts per channel x 4 (front and rear left/right) and a powerful 90 watts each for the critical center-channel speaker and the included 6.5-inch passive subwoofer.

The system's discrete Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1-channel audio decoding lets you enjoy spacious, full-bodied surround effects from commercial DVDs and DTS surround-sound music CDs. Your Dolby Pro Logic-encoded VHS tapes will sound great in 4-channel surround (left, center, right, and monaural left/right surround), and the system even features Dolby Pro Logic II, special processing that generates 5.1 mixes in realtime from any stereo (2-channel source).

Whether your living room is currently home to an HDTV or you're merely thinking of "someday," the RTD255 is equipped to deliver the full potential of your DVDs. Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, creates a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional DVD picture, giving you higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts.

The RTD255 also performs 3:2 pulldown detection and reversal. DVD mastering introduces a common distortion when adjusting 24 frames-per-second movies to 30 fps video; reverse 3:2 pulldown digitally corrects this distortion, removing the redundant information to display a film-frame-accurate picture.

The system offers 1 each component-, composite-, and S-video outputs and 2 stereo analog (left/right RCA) audio inputs.

A drift-free, digital FM/AM tuner offers 40 station presets with auto station scanning so your favorite stations are never more than a button-push away, and a headphone jack lets you listen in private. For night listening without headphones, the system offers 2 compression modes to minimize dramatic increases in sound level between quiet and loud movie passages.

Amazon.com Product Description

The SA-HE75 home theater receiver from Panasonic is a sophisticated, easy-to-customize, and affordable core component for both home audio and home theater systems. The receiver’s Dolby Digital and DTS decoders provide crisp, clear sound, and Dolby Pro Logic II surround sound yields richness to movies and music alike. The SA-HE75 has three surround modes: movie, music, and panorama. The adjustable music and panorama settings add surround effects to stereo sources, and can be altered to fully customize your audio experience.

The SA-HE75 features a unique set of controls that lets you create a customized speaker configuration. When you set up your speakers, you can optimize the sound by selecting the appropriate speaker size. The large speaker setting reproduces a full sound range, particularly lower levels of bass. For small speakers, the setting makes automatic adjustments to the bass range reproduction to avoid distortion and speaker damage. The preset adjustments can also be manually changed. The versatile receiver allows you to configure a full array of speakers of all size in a surround-sound arrangement.

You can also focus the sound of your home theater by inputting the distance of your front, center, and surround speakers from your primary seating location. The easy setup can be adjusted quickly if you change the layout of your room, or if you add speakers.

Panasonic’s sound field control gives your audio experience further definition with six presets: hall, club, live, theater, simulated surround, and party (which configures stereo sound throughout the room.). You can further enhance the sound by adding a subwoofer that can be controlled through the receiver. Dynamic range compression allows you to listen to Dolby Digital music and video at low volumes while maintaining audio clarity. It’s a perfect option for late-night viewing or listening.

The SA-HE75 receiver supports a wide array of audio and video components: CD players, tape decks (with a tape monitor feature), DVD players, VCRs, and more. An AM/FM tuner is built into the unit. The universal remote control included with the receiver allows you to control the other components in your home theater.

The SA-HE75 puts out 100 watts per channel, with less than 0.9% total harmonic distortion.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good deal
Really wicked amp for the price, great sound but it runs a little warm so I don't stack anything on it that doesn't provide space between for air circulation. I paired this amp with a set of Reference audio R82T floor model speakers, cranked up the Sepultura and now my neighbours have a reason to officially hate me.

Loud and clear.

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for my needs!!!!
I bought the Panasonic SA-HE75 receiver after trying out another one. I'm very impressed with this unit. I've connected an equalizer to it to draw that extra punch.
The first(and only) sound test was the T-Rex scene from "Jurassic Park", I was blown away. Enuff said.
I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good/solid receiver @ a budget. And for any tech. related questions, Panasonic.com is a great help. Enjoy!!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars o.k.
Bought this to replace an aging Yamaha stereo receiver and move up to a home theater receiver. First things first, you cannot beat the price! This sounds really good for home theater, it weighs a ton, it runs real hot. However, if you listen to music mostly, I'd stick with Yamaha or Onkyo. For some reason I can't get this to crank out like my Yamaha could. Four stars for a good receiver at a great price. But like with most everything you get what you pay for.

4-0 out of 5 stars almost perfect for DVI users
Very convenient controls, good sound, informative display. High mechanical quality except for speaker connection clips, which are hard to use, work well only with wire of a specific size (16 gage). Appropriate for those who prefer DVI video connections. Adding a switchable 2-input, 1-output DVI connection would be a valuable feature. Remote a bit cheesy. Excellent value for the price. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars MSNTV and the puter
Webtv, now rebranded by Microsoft as MSNTV and known by many of it's users as a LBB (little black box), has been around since 1996 and despite several write offs by some pundits, it just won't go away. And rightly so. It's kind of like the little engine that could. It doesn't go all the places and can't do all the things that a computer can, but for general surfing through search engines and using e-mail, it does quite well. Some people have even made home pages that are right near the top of search engines. I have a computer. I also have Microsoft's MSN One Plan which allows me to use my MSNTV and the puter on MSN's isp service for one price. I find myself using my MSNTV unit much more often because of it's ease. If you have someone in your family you think might be interested in the internet or e-mail, think about getting them a MSNTV unit. And if it works out well, then tell a friend. While neither MSNTV nor even a puter is for everyone, the LBB has brought a lot of enjoyment to a lot of people.

5-0 out of 5 stars MSNTV-a helpful way to get net access
MSNTV(formerly Webtv) has gotten some flack from PC users. But this wasn't designed to be a PC! It's low cost, easy way to get internet access. I have been a devoted user sinse 1997(and over the years used different units), and I plan on getting a computer soon and getting the MSN ONE PLAN which allows me to get free MSNTV service for subscribing to MSN for my puter. Why do I love MSNTV? I love the ease of it, not having to sit hunched over in front of a PC for hours..I like surfing the web, instant messaging, e-mailing, online banking, playing online games against my friends online, shopping online, listening to audio streams, all with the wireless keyboard on the comfy couch.Currently, MSNTV is getting ready to release an advanced MSNTV box with DSL, a real hard drive to download, and many more features which will make the new model much like a computer for the TV.I'll be the first in line to get it.I, despite it's limitations, think MSNTV is the neatest tv related applience to come along sinse the Sony Betamax vcr!! It's just a great idea and so much fun....I will never stop being an MSNTV subsriber.

4-0 out of 5 stars No Viruses
I own 7 computers and I buy used computers all the time. I have to go in and clear out all the viruses and then load programs into these older systems to once again make them useful. My friends are forever suffering from viruses, trojan horses, and all sorts of other fun problems. I can custom build a computer from scratch without thinking twice on how to do it. You know what? I will not put one of them on the internet. I don't want to have to go in and clean out more viruses and spyware and a host of other junk that will clog up your system. I clean them out once and that is it. Free software comes with free spyware. I don't need that. Computers are also very easy to hack. Try hacking someones webtv system. Good luck there. Yes the system has short comings. It was not designed to act like a computer. Some very ingenious folks have figured out ways to make it act a lot like one though. Do some homework and you can do just about anything with these systems. Especially the plus systems. And yes, I can even burn CD's with it, but then again, I'm a wiz at hooking stuff up to make it all work. I have used other internet access only devices and yet I still stay with this MSNTV box. I have read other's reviews and can only say, they did not do their homework before critisizing these boxes. An example is that one person tried to link an MSN e-mail account to the box, said he was lied to and could not get the account linked, I am useing a hotmail.com address that I have linked into this box. Don't know what he did wrong except maybe fail to use his passport access. If you want safety and the best of both worlds, don't give up the computer, just keep it off line and surf the web with one of these boxes and use it to communicate through e-mail with others. These systems are simple, cheap, reliable, no crashes, and a lot of fun. Not perfect when comparing to a computer, but they were not designed to be compared to a computer. Slow? Yes, but I can live with slow instead of virus attacks that could cost me lost hours, files and even a couple of thousand dollars because I have to buy a new system.

1-0 out of 5 stars Nice Idea, Poor Execution, Poor Support
I bought a new MSNTv (the RCA 2100) for my parents. I was hoping to replace their computer which has become too much for them to manage, and they needed to downsize as well. They also have an MSN dial up account and this allows them to use this account for MSNTv and not have to pay any additional monthly fee. I called MSNTv before I bought this unit to ask if their "@msn.com" e-mail account could be transfered over to the "@webtv.net" domain and they said "yes just call us when you hook it up". Well this turned out to be a lie. You can access your MSN.COM e-mail on your computer, but your new domain will be WebTV.Net and the two are separate. Then it turns out that many SPAM bocking programs (including SPAMCop) block all WebTV.Net e-mail as SPAM. Appearently the device lacks support for certain e-mail features which validate the e-mail origin and therefore it is thrown out (depending on how the e-mail admin handles SPAM). So my very first test e-mail to my sister never went through, no error msg no nothing, just off into the ether. Also, since MSNTv has its own list of incoming SPAM sites, it regularly blocks e-mail from some very popular domains, including 8 days where they blocked MSN.COM e-mails! The unit is very slow, much slower than a regular computer over the same dial up line, and if you want to surf any web site other than the ones MSNTv picks for you, good luck, you will be there all night. My Sister-in-law likes to send e-mails with pictures embedded in word documents. Obviously this unit can't handle that, but it did not even strip the doc file and let the e-mail through, it just never showed up, no error no nothing. So this unit has very unreliable e-mail capabilities, and is painfully slow at web surfing, and I ended up returning it for a refund. Some time in the coming months a new MSNTv unit (the RCA4100) will be out that will work over broadband and have more support for e-mail that hopefully will fix some of these issues, until then I'd say forget this current product.

5-0 out of 5 stars Simple and reliable
After previously owning two piece of junk computers (the second of which now lies at the bottom of Tampa Bay), I went back to the tried-and-true WebTV (now MSNTV) internet terminal. It's great not to have to hunch at a computer desk for hours on end surfing the 'web. Immunity to viruses is another great thing, and I love not having to dump $$$ into a WebTV just it keep it running. People can trash the 'Yugo of the internet world' all they want, but simplicity always wins out in the end. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Small enough for a kitchen or bedroom and potent enough for a dormitory home theater, RCA's 20-inch 20F500TDV TV/DVD/VCR combination unit plays all your favorite movies and your music, too, accommodating DVD and VHS concert videos, CD albums, and even homemade MP3 compilation CDs. Listen through the set's 1.5-watt stereo speakers or hook it up with a larger entertainment system--this versatile unit lets you have it both ways.

The TV element uses a TruFlat picture tube, which not only looks cool compared to a conventional, bulbous screen, but also provides a high-quality, high-contrast picture because of the screen's ability to reduce reflected ambient light. The 20F500TDV's comb filter enhances resolution by removing blurred edges between colors and reducing dot crawl (tiny, moving dots of color along a sharp color separation in a vertical line, as in a depiction of a character's striped T-shirt).

The DVD player offers compatibility with recordable DVD+R and DVD+RW discs, 2x to 4x picture zoom, and scanning speeds from .125x to 15x. The VCR includes features four-head, hi-fi audio/video, one-touch recording, autorewind, autorepeat, and Quick Start, which gets your programs up and running in no time.

Standard composite-video inputs accommodate most video equipment, from DVRs to laser disc players. You can choose between a set of rear AV inputs and a set of front AV inputs for convenience in hooking up camcorders and gaming consoles. A rear AV output lets you hook the set up with a stereo receiver. Looking for home-theater excitement? Hook the unit's coaxial digital-audio output up with a compatible audio/video surround receiver and multichannel speaker system for immersive, 5.1-channel Dolby Digital and DTS surround sound. Or, take advantage of the built-in 3D audio feature, which simulates surround sound from any two speakers.

The unit also features a trilingual onscreen display (English, Spanish, French), V-Chip parental control, a sleep/power-on timer, and a remote control.

17. RCA DRC240N DivX-Capable Progressive-Scan Single Disc DVD Player

Asin: B0002ARJVQ
Catlog: CE

Amazon.com Product Description

RCA's shining, silvery DRC240N offers not only good looks, but an array of cutting-edge features like DivX (MPEG-4) video compatibility, progressive-scan technology for use with high-definition and HD-ready TVs, JPEG image viewing, MP3 music file playback, and compatibility with just about every recordable DVD format, from DVD-R to DVD-RW, DVD+R, and DVD+RW.

Whether your living room is currently home to an HDTV or you're merely thinking "someday soon," the DRC240N is equipped to deliver the full potential of your DVDs. Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, creates a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional DVD picture, giving you higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts.

Top-of-the-line component-video outputs help minimize digital and line-scan artifacts on compatible advanced televisions, while composite- and S-video outputs bring compatibility with nearly any television.

Like MP3, DivX is a compression technology that can shrink digital media files to sizes that can be easily moved over the Internet. Based on MPEG-4 video compression techniques, DivX maintains high visual quality while minimizing file sizes. This lets online content providers offer high-quality, low-bandwidth programs like movie trailers, animated shorts, and even full-length movies (many available as limited-time "rentals").

The DivX-certified DRC240N plays recordable media (CD or DVD) formatted with DivX 5, DivX 4, DivX 3, and DivX VOD (video-on-demand) content in compliance with DivX-certified technical requirements. To take advantage of the player's DivX compatibility, first browse Web sites and select videos to download. One content-rich portal is www.divx.com. The site will instruct you on the minimum system requirements needed to download content to your computer. Once you've downloaded your program, simply burn it to a compatible CD-ROM or DVD-ROM, insert the disc into your DRC240N DVD player, and you're ready to watch--even if you're nowhere near your PC.

A set of left/right analog-audio outputs channel audio to Dolby Pro Logic receivers and stereo televisions. Both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1-channel surround-sound signals can be routed through the player's digital-audio outputs (one each of RCA coaxial and Toslink optical) for direct connection to a full-featured audio/video receiver. A 96 kHz/24-bit digital-to-analog converter ensures optimum decoding of all disc formats.

If you don't have a surround receiver or six-channel speaker setup, you can still make every movie night the ultimate experience: Virtual Surround simulates surround sound through two speakers (even the stereo speakers on your TV). Other features include parental lock, Scene Again (one-button 10-second instant replay), bookmarking (up to 12 bookmarks per disc), and resume play (handy when you need to stop playback and pick up, at a later point, exactly where you left off).

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome Big CD Alarm Clock
This CD/Alarm Clock sounds more like a stereo.The sound is amazing.You can feel the bass standing in front of it.The reception is great. It uses the power cord for the antenna.It has battery backup.It has every thing I wanted.

5-0 out of 5 stars Nice little clock
I needed an alarm clock to replace my old small (and fast may I add) clock radio, I seen the RCA RP4010 clock at Circuit City (I had no choice, I work there.) I was showing it to a customer and I was suprized at it becasue it had the SRS TruBass feature on it, so after work I bought one for myself. When I got home and put in a CDin it, I was amazed! The sound quality is awesome coming from a clock radio. I like how it has digital tuning, this clock reminds me alot of the Bose Wave CD/Radio clock. The only thing I didn't like was the size, it's pretty big, but i guess it is since my old one was kinda small, but I can live with it. The price Circuit City had was 79.99. But I think there discontinuing them. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Sweet!!!
I got this Mp3 player it's really nice and easy to use it works with many programs on your computer the buttons are simple and easy to use and the music quality is very nice on it. Im very happy with it and had no problems, Like I have with other players.

5-0 out of 5 stars love it
The Lyra meets my expectations and more. I bought this becouse I wanted somthing light weight and would'nt skip.
I had a bit of trouble trying to get my computer to recognize the usb, after a few tries I decided to give the cord a firm push into the Lyra and vwala it worked.
The head set is comfy and sounds good.
I like that I can use my SD cards from my camera to store more songs if I want.

2-0 out of 5 stars Less Than Stellar
A recent purchase of this product left my head spinning!For days now I've been attempting to get music to the MP3 player from the web downloaded MusicMatch Jukebox, but without success.The software that accompanied the player is missing critical components, such as any usable plug-in.When attempts to retrieve the plug-in from ANY web site, it's nowhere to be found.Neither MusicMatch nor Windows Media Player can even find the MP3 player at all!Obviously, this is an old player in terms of the electronics industry.The Users Manual leaves something to be desired as well.With letterhead only an ant can read and the fact that it repeats completed installation steps only leaves one wondering if a step was missed.On the brighter side, the sound quality is up there with the best.Overall, if you don't mind premature baldness, get the player.Otherwise, forget it and move on....

1-0 out of 5 stars Not a good option
I bought one, returned it because it didn't work, replaced it, the new one didn't work, so I said forget it.

I did everything the instructions said, but there was no communication from my computer to the player, so after 2 flaws, I have very little trust for this brand.

Save up and get a good one.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great mp3 player
I recently bought this as a replacement for a CD player (which I reccommend as well) The Rio Volt SP90. It lasted three years and I was sad to see it go. Anyway, this is excellant mp3 device with great sound quality and a very good price. The only things I don't like are the fact that you have to manually program a playlist on the Lyra and that the only one that is backlit for this Lyra series is the more expensive version with radio. I would like this to be backlit. ... Read more


20. RCA LCDX2722W 27" HD-Ready Flat-Panel LCD TV

(price subject to change: see help)
Asin: B0000BZHBZ
Catlog: CE
Manufacturer: RCA
Sales Rank: 49635
US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan

Amazon.com Product Description

RCA's 27-inch, widescreen LCDX2722W will display standard-definition and high-definition television signals with resolutions ranging from standard 480i (interlaced) to 480p, 720p (progressive), and full 1080i. For high-definition signals, connect the set to an optional DTV set-top box, or use it with your progressive-scanning (480p) DVD player.

The screen itself is a mere .25 inches wide, and RCA's Bi-Sonic speakers flank the widescreen display for spacious sound with wide stereo separation. The set's 170-degree viewing angles ensure amazing picture quality from virtually any location, so the whole family can savor the set's rich images. The LCDX2722W's CinemaScreen high-gloss black chassis lets the set disappear into the darkness of your living room, leaving only the brilliant, high-contrast (500:1) screen for theater-like nighttime movie viewing.

With a native resolution of 1,280 x 720, the set is equipped to display both standard- and high-definition signals (480p, 720p, and 1080i). It uses built-in image scaling to fit 1080i signals to its progressively scanned 720 horizontal lines. A DVI-HDTV input provides a direct-digital connection to a digital set-top box or compatible PC, while the unit's integrated analog NTSC tuner lets you enjoy off-air TV and cable programs. A VGA port facilitates connection to a laptop or desktop computer.

LCD screens offer a number of benefits over CRT monitors and televisions, including general ease of use, freedom from eye strain (no screen flickering or radiation emissions), quiet operation (no high-pitch "flyback" noise, an issue with CRT TVs), accurate image geometry (no curvature distortion or susceptibility to magnetic interference), long screen life (no risk of image burn-in), space savings, and light weight/easy positioning. They also tend to be cheaper and, to some eyes, slightly more natural looking than their plasma flat-panel counterparts, which usually "spec" higher (higher brightness, higher contrast ratio).

The LCDX2722W's horizontal and vertical 170-degree viewing angle lets you and your family or friends view the full picture whether standing, sitting, or lying on the floor.

The LCDX2722W includes state-of-the-art video processing with an image deinterlacer that converts analog signals to a progressive display, improving both resolution and image clarity. While not as fast as LCD sets come, the LCDX2722W's 25 millisecond response time will deliver smooth, seamless images from most video sources.
