Olevia 227V-211 27-inch HDTV

HDTVs are rapidly becoming the norm rather than the exception. With such new-found popularity, there are more TVs than ever to choose from. The wise consumer contemplates overall value rather than just size and brand name. Benchmark Reviews seeks out the value in HDTVs with this review of the 27-Inch 1080i Widescreen Olevia 227V-S11 LCD HDTV; a steal at just over $400. Olevia is quickly making High Definition the standard with their affordable line of HDTVs, and they aren't skimping on quality in the process.

It seems like every company that produces any type of consumer electronics is trying to jump on the HDTV bandwagon. Of the hundreds of new brand names, which is the best value? Today Benchmark Reviews will be considering the Olevia 227V-S11 27-inch LCD HDTV to see if meets the standards set by the market, both in its quality and where it hurts the most, our wallet.

The Olevia 227V-S11 is a 27-inch LCD HDTV that has helped Olevia redefine the way we look at HDTVs. LCD and Plasma screen HDTVs still seem like the newest, hottest items, despite their becoming much more popular. As such, we imagine them to be a large purchase, something that can wait, or just plain too expensive. The Olevia brand has changed all that. With the switch to DTV just around the corner, everyone is looking for the least expensive, but most valuable change for their money. Why work on getting a converter box for your old TV when a high definition, lighter, slimmer, better looking TV is available for a reasonable cost?

Now, 27-inch may be considered somewhat small in the world of brand new HDTVs, but even if you are in the market for a larger screen as your main source of high definition entertainment, you may be considering a smaller TV with that same quality picture for another room in the house. Or you may be like me, and find the picture quality on this TV to be so good that you just don't need a more expensive and bulkier set. This TV is one of the best values on the market, clocking in at just over $400.

The Sony RM-VL 610 remote for $29.99 works perfect as a replacement remote control.

When I was in the market for a new LCD TV I shopped around quite a bit. I sifted through reviews, poured through specs and agonized over every detail trying to get the most TV I could for my budget. As a DISH Network customer and employee I really wanted a flat-screen that could really give me that vivid picture quality that having the most HD channels in the industry deserves. When I came across the Olevia brand I was skeptical at first (being a name I hadn?t previously known about at all). But the reviews were overwhelmingly positive and the price was actually under my upper limit. So off to the store I went to see its screen with my own eyes?it did not disappoint. Once I got it home and hooked it up to my 622 receiver and started watching my DISH Network programming through it looked even better than it did in the store! Now 3 years later it has never failed to perform, I haven?t had a single problem with it. The Olevia HD TV was a great purchase for me.
