Viewing Angle: Unlike most LCD TVs, the Olevia retains its excellent picture quality even when viewed from way off axis, with no significant contrast degradation. Audio: Unremarkable TV sound quality, so connecting the set to an external audio system will improve things immensely.
Where it really counts, the Olevia really delivers. I was very impressed with its overall picture quality, especially with HD programs, but also with DVDs. It’s a brighter set than others in its class, which can be useful for daytime watching in well-lit environments. Even with its additional brightness, the contrast wasn’t compromised, and the black and dark gray performance stood out. While I wasn’t impressed with the somewhat unusual menu system, that’s really only a minor complaint, and more than easily offset by the 232T’s excellent picture quality.
