AOC L42H961

LCD TVs cannot be afforded by everyone due to their high pricing, though dreamed of by most of us. All of us picture a large LCD mounted on our room’s wall displaying Avatar. The 42” AOC Envision L42H961 comes very close to fulfilling our dream as it is relatively inexpensive LCD TV.

This LCD TV displays fast moving content in a sluggish manner, whereas other content display is satisfactory. If you are frantic about sound, you are most possibly going to despise Envision’s speakers. Therefore, I advise you beforehand to get a nice set of speakers. Though you get nice features like S-video, composite and component ports along with four HDMI ports; there is no USB port for playback of media files, network connectivity or SD card slot.

With six video and four audio presets, you get ample choices to select from. Remote control has nicely spaced buttons on top of it, but it isn’t backlit which creates difficulty while operating it in the dark (as when you are in a mood to watch a movie with your lights switched off). AOC certainly does not offer high features here in this set, but it is a nice TV with all major attributes that an LCD possesses.

Product’s Unique Selling Points:

  • Adequate amount of inputs
  • Nicely priced


  • Remote is not backlit
  • Sluggish performance in fast motion content
  • No features related to media playback
