At A Glance

The 42-inch AOC Envision L42H961 LCD struggles with fast-motion content, but is otherwise a decent no-frills TV at a rock-bottom price.

Manufacturer’s Description

The L42H961 is a 42" full 1080p HD LCD TV. It has a great looking piano-black finish and is wall mountable like the 861 series, but offers a higher dynamic contrast ratio for better picture quality than ever before. Given its size and high resolution this TV is designed for living and family rooms.
