Syntax-Brillian Olevia 747i LCD HDTV Review
The universe maintains its balance with the Syntax-Brillian Olevia 747i LCD HDTV's awful design and great image quality .​
On one hand, the Olevia 747i could be far ahead of​ its time .​
On the other hand, it​ might just be a​ little too far ahead .​
Check out the on-screen menus .​
The 747i gets points for originality with its bolt-shaped interface when you access the remote's menu .​
Cute though it​ might be, you'll be wishing it​ were less cute if​ it​ meant actual practicality .​
The display is​ sorely lacking .​
Something as​ simple as​ adjusting the picture quality can be taxing, what with the way the 747i displays just one video option at​ a​ given time.
One thing the Olevia 747i has going for it​ is​ its impressive picture quality .​
For that alone, it​ lands on the third spot out of​ the nine 46-inch and 47-inch HDTV sets tested at​ that point, hot on the heels of​ the Vizio VO47LF (second place) and the Samsung LN46A550 (first place) .​
A few note-worthy hitches mentioned were the graininess in​ a​ few images, and at​ one point it​ seemed like Dave Letterman received an​ unseemly tan in​ The Late Show clip .​
Not to​ make it​ seem like this set only had bad things to​ offer .​
One viewer credited the set for showing a​ clip of​ According to​ Jim and making it​ look very natural.
The 747i gets top points for sound quality as​ well .​
The set poses no difficulty in​ projecting either quiet or​ loud sounds, with whispers coming off cleanly and clearly, and music that you can rock out to .​
The Olevia 747i's speakers are removable, giving users the option to​ mount them somewhere else for a​ desired effect, or​ to​ connect additional external speakers to​ the TV.
The remote gives the 747i an​ added charm, with its brilliant backlighting feature that activates with a​ press of​ a​ button .​
The buttons are well-spaced and big enough to​ make life easier for the avid TV surfer.
Besides the most basic features, operating the Olevia 747i can be a​ pain .​
The ill-thought design reaches all the way to​ the back of​ the set that even locating something as​ simple as​ the AC power connector becomes a​ chore .​
The quick-start guide is​ virtually wordless and helpful only enough to​ tell that it​ was behind the TV .​
The operations manual isn't even on paper .​
Instead, it's a​ PDF file that comes along with the CD .​
And just when you thought it​ couldn't get more difficult, the PDF file comes in​ bitmaps of​ text instead of​ actual text .​
Virtually nothing is​ printed on paper, and the digital information provided is​ difficult to​ navigate.
A pleasantly surprising feature of​ the TV set is​ the Welcome wizard that appears the first time you turn on your TV .​
This application asks you if​ you'll be doing your viewing at​ home or​ in​ a​ showroom .​
Unfortunately, this highlights a​ notorious flaw in​ most TVs these past few years .​
They're engineered to​ look fantastic in​ a​ store, but wait until you set it​ up at​ home.
While it​ is​ a​ great HDTV that offers good quality for your money, don’t expect to​ see anything new .​
This Syntax Brillian Olevia 747i does not have features or​ a​ design that makes it​ stand out from the rest of​ the TV’s on the market .​
It is​ however, seamless and will look great in​ the room of​ your choice .​
However, you will find the included speakers and they can be attached to​ the sides easily .​
If you choose to​ hook up the speakers, they will make the entire screen seem bulkier than usual.
This should be a​ lesson to​ Syntax-Brillian and all other HDTV manufacturers .​
Between easy-to-use or​ sleek and bizarre, users will always prefer the former over the latter .​
The bottom line, however, is​ in​ its performance and image quality .​
At that, the Syntax-Brillian Olevia 747i LCD HDTV gets it​ right.
