About - Sanyo FVM5082

The Sanyo FVM5082 is a 50-inch LCD HDTV with a native resolution of 1920x1080 (1080p). It has conventional fluorescent backlighting. Many new TVs now have a higher frame rate that's designed to reduce the motion blur that's a shortcoming of LCD technology.

There are 3 HD-capable inputs: 2 HDMI and 1 component-video, which can also be used as composite-video. It also has a USB port, which may allow you to plug in a thumb drive or memory card reader so you can play the stored photos, videos, and music on the TV.

The Sanyo FVM5082 measures 29.1 inches high by 46.4 inches wide by 10.4 inches deep, including its base. The panel itself is 4 inches thick including any protrusions, and the screen has a near matte finish. The bezel framing the screen is gloss black.

The warranty on this TV covers parts/labor for 12/12 months, respectively.

About This Brand

While Sanyo's focus is on LCD TVs, it also sells several value-priced 720p plasma TVs. Its value-oriented flat-panel TVs are sold through Walmart, typically at lower prices than sets from first-tier manufacturers. The company, now part of the Panasonic Group, has recently discontinued its production and sales of home-theater front projectors.

Best Uses
I got this after I had a 55 Phillips and this TV is just what I was looking for to watch the NFL games. It is just like you are there in person. The picture is great from any angle & I love the PIP(which I didn't know I had until it was hooked up. The hook-up was easy, but I had to have the cable people come over to make sure that everything was working like it was suppose to, & they did. I invested in a set of SONY headphones, which makes the wife happy, & I can enjoy what I watch even more, because the sound from the earphones is HI-FI, which gives me a great combo.
