Our take on the Proscan 32LA30Q

by Steve Kindig
Get High-Def Programming

Been thinking about replacing your tired, old tube TV with a flat-panel HDTV? Take a close look at the high-value models from Proscan. The 32" 32LA30Q can bring crisp, glare-free, high-definition images to a bedroom, office or living room.

The built-in tuner receives both digital and analog over-the-air broadcasts from your local stations (antenna required). You can keep enjoying non-digital programs the same as always, but you'll really be knocked out by the crisp ghost-free images provided by digital broadcasts.

The generous set of inputs includes composite, S-video, and component video jacks, as well as two HDMI digital inputs for use with the latest HD set-top boxes and "upconverting" DVD players. The versatile 32LA30Q also includes a standard PC input so you can use its razor-sharp screen as a computer display.

Multiple flaws, had it re-boxed within 10 minutes

Written By Brian, Collierville, TN on Saturday, August 04, 2007
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Turned on the TV and nothing happened. After unplugging it and re-applying power, it had a weird colorization effect which required another unplug to remove. The remote never would turn it back on after turning it off. There were several dead pixels always showing bright red.

Called Crutchfield back and the return process was very easy, just attach a sticker and drop off at UPS. The clerk at the UPS store said 'Oh yeah that's the 3rd one of those TVs I have seen returned lately.'

Wikipedia shows ProScan is no longer associated with RCA like it once was, so don't be fooled.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought 2 of these tv's for my kids on their birthdays they are both awful both appear out of focus, back lighting on both keeps changing intensity, one has a loud hum that increases with the volume the other seems to be straining to get the sound out. The tv's are bad but Crutchfield was great no problem so far returning them. Its true you get what you pay for no more off brands for me.

Great Value, Performance, and Style

Written By Alan, Midland, TX on Tuesday, May 15, 2007
 
When I first checked out this television, two things stood out. First, it came with TWO remote controls. It comes with a basic for just the television and a universal. Whether this is a good or bad thing depends on your perspective. It provides more versitility, and you have a spare if you loose one. For me its good, but some may see it as more clutter.

The second thing was the TWO HDMI outputs. This is a must since many DVD players now use these cables for high-definition picture. It is elegant in design. When plugged in, a red light below the screen glows when the television is off. The light changes to blue when the television is on. It has a total of 7 outputs.

One final thing is quality. I was not familiar with Proscan recently, but I know years ago it was a great brand. Apparently it still is. It is heavier than most LCD televisions it size, but too me that means more quality. ALSO MY CAT JUMPED UP ON TOP OF IT AND TIPPED IT OVER, AND IT FELL TO THE FLOOR! NO DAMAGE OCCURRED. I DON'T KNOW IF THIS IS TRUE WITH OTHER MODELS BUT I WAS IMPRESSED.

So to me, its a great choice and highly recommended. GREAT SOUND AND PICTURE!
