About the Proscan 26LA30Q
If it's time to replace your tired, old tube TV with a flat-panel HDTV, take a close look at the high-value models from Proscan. The 26" 26LA30Q can bring crisp, glare-free, high-definition images to a bedroom, office or kitchen.
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 26LA30Q also includes a standard PC input so you can use its razor-sharp screen as a computer display.
