Polaroid HDTV – Great Value For The Money
Polaroid is fast becoming a major player on the HDTV market. Polaroid HDTVs are gaining in
popularity among other models like Sony, Sharp, Panasonic, Vizio, Olevia, and others.
Reviewing the current Polaroid HDTV product line will give you a good idea of how Polaroid has grown from a newcomer in the HDTV industry to
an accepted, highly respected product manufacturer.
Polaroid 40" LCD HDTV
This model has a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels and a contrast ratio of 1200 to 1. If you are new to the world of high definition TV, all you
need to know about resolution is that the higher the numbers, the sharper the picture. The contrast ratio measures the difference between the
darkest black in the picture and the brightest white in the picture.
The Polaroid 40" LCD HDTV has excellent numbers for both resolution and contrast. Customers who bought this model of Polaroid HDTV were
thrilled at getting such a high quality HDTV for such a low price.
One purchaser wrote that he paid about $799 for a 40" Polaroid HDTV – what a bargain. This custom felt that it was not worth it for him to pay
an extra $300 to $500 just to get a different brand name HDTV, when the Polaroid HDTV had the same features and benefits as the higher priced
Some customers warned that they had had problems with their TVs and they were displeased with Polaroid's customer service and technical
support. When a company sells as many HDTV sets as Polaroid sells, there are bound to be a few problem units, and it looks like Polaroid
works with customers who have problems with their TVs to try to satisfy them.
Polaroid 26" LCD HDTV
The resolution on this Polaroid model is 1366 x 768, same as the 40" set, but the 26 inch set has only half the contrast, with a 100 to 1
contrast ratio. The price on this TV is good, though, at only about $500 for an LCD HDTV.
Some of the customers who wrote reviews about this particular Polaroid HDTV model wrote that they were using this model as a secondary TV in a
bedroom, guest bedroom, or exercise room, where it was serving its function well.
One satisfied customer, JeAd from northeast Maryland, got her Polaroid HDTV to go in her
bedroom. The sound, she said, was great, and she was getting a good picture from just digital feeds – not even high definition feeds. She had a
little trouble finding the right remote control codes for her DirecTV unit, but she eventually found them and is happily using her 26" Polaroid
