Emerson LC320EM1F, the  32 inch Class LCD HDTV is wa available at Walmart as door bustor sale on the 2010 Black Friday for just $198. This could be was one of the best bargains that you could get for the price it is was offered. The question is will be able to get it ?

From the specifications, it looks like this TV lacks some of the features that you would have liked. For example, there is no mention  of wifi or internet connectivity. It has no USB. It does not has 1080p resolution.

It is just a basic LCD HDTV with just two HDMI input and a component input. But it is still worth more than $198.

    This review is incorrect. The device has 3 HDMI inputs available, and one of them is on the side, as well as S-Video. I have been using it as my PC monitor via the HDMI for a year now. It does have a USB port, but it is for the purpose of upgrading the firmware. Others have reported being able to use it to view pictures off their Mp3 player however. To me it’s a good deal or the price, and I am debating whether to get another one or upgrade to the 42 inch. It depends on what is available and what finances are looking like. I just thought viewers should have the whole picture. Thanks.

    Fred and Alex-

    Check your model number again…this TV just came out and has an “F” at the end of the model number. Walmart states 1 HDMI in add. Glad you are happy with yours though.

    Got the Emerson 32′ @ Wamart. Arrived @ 12:15, picked up @ 5:10am. hen waited in line to pay for 45 minutes. First time I ever did anything like this (probably last). The Specs were different then advertized. Has 3 HDMI hookups and a computer hook up as well as s-video and component hook ups. Very happy for the price. I usually get the Samsung LCD tv’s or the plasma but this deal was too good for a bedroom tv. Very happy.

    Black Friday shopping: I got this TV via mail today and the TV don’t want to turn on. I have to take it to an electronic center as far as heaven, otherwise, I have to waiting for customer service to give me a phone call back on 1 or 2 more business days. Good purchase or good way to get trouble?

    Mine has a burning smell @ all times. I have it in a custom built cabinet, but when ever I open the doors the smwll is awful!!! The picture quality is ok but it isn’t posted on the box that it is only 60 HZ!! Other then that for $199 I can not complain.

    We also bought the walmart black friday emerson 32 inch tv as a gift for my parents. It would not power on after 6 days use. We brought it back to the same store. They cannot and would not offer us a replacement tv. Also stated by management that they had some of these tvs come back for the same problem. We got our money back and went to sears for a new tv.

    I am at a super8 motel right now, they have a lc320em1f funai HDTV in the room, exact model number (I double checked it) and it does in fact have 3 HDMI ports as the first two posters mentioned.

    Here are two images that I just posted to my Dropbox

    I bought this tv for $278 @ Walmart. 6 months later having problems with turning tv on. It takes a quite a few times before it will stay on. Goes to Standby mode. Bought 2 yr Srv plan, but that does not go into effect until after the year product warranty. Called Emerson, reset tv and it worked that night, but it is doing it again. will call back, hopefully they will replace this tv instead of sending it to be serviced. Fingers crossed

    This model has a flaw that many reviews here and elsewhere have complained about and i have myself experienced personally. the on/off feature either stops working completely or only works intermittently. bought at walmart on thanksgiving sale for two hundred dollars. walmart replaced it with newer model LC320EM2; do not know if flaw is fixed in newer model; great thing about walmart is their no hassles return policy but you are out of luck if tv fails after fifteen days

    I cannot get any hi-def channels with my Emerson LC320EM1F tv. They come in but cut in and out…..

    I guess I got lucky, mine worked for almost two years, before losing the sound, picture is still very good for a 720 DPI.

    Now, I have to decide if I want to invest in a sound bar and hook up to my cable box.
