Despite being a 720p LED TV, the Upstar P32ES8 delivers an outstanding picture quality that is blur-free and also particularly sharp. Most notably, the HDTV provides rich colors that make the image appear even crisper, hence providing a surreal viewing experience that beats some of the pricier models on the market.
Sound quality is not as great as image quality however, which can be a big letdown for those who want a real cinematographic experience right in their bedroom or living-room. After adjusting menu settings a couple of times, we discovered that the “surround sound” option makes the audio sound a little weird. The option is turned on by default, but you can easily turn it off using the remote.
The Upstar P32ES8 has a pretty convenient viewing angle that will allow you to sit comfortable while watching your favorite movies or TV series. Device connectivity is relatively decent given that you get 3 HDMI inputs, 1 USB, 1 VGA, and even 1 audio input. Connecting the HDTV to your computer will be relatively easy, and this will allow you to stream videos and movies, and also take your gaming experience to a whole new level.
Measuring 29.1 x 17.8 x 2.7 inches, this HDTV has a screen resolution of 1366 x 768, which makes it large enough for a model of its kind. Its notable thin design will make your viewing experience more immersive, which will dramatically impact the way you watch your favorite movies or TV series. Weighing at 13.8, the P32ES8 might not be quite the most lightweight HDTV model on the market, but it certainly is less heavy than some high-end models produced by veteran brands such as Sony.
Thanks to its refresh rate of 60Hz, you can conveniently enjoy a super-fast frame rate that is similar to some high-priced gaming monitors. This makes the HDTV perfect for gamers who want to get their favorite PC games on a considerably larger screen.
Despite a couple of drawbacks, the Upstar P32ES8 remains a quality HDTV that provides a wide range of features and eloquent viewing experience without the price tag. At only $169.99, this model is a lot more affordable than some other HDTVs of its kind, which will make it also very accessible even to those on a tighter budget. Although we would have appreciated a few more connectivity options, we find that the Upstar P32ES8 is still a great option for everyone looking for a HDTV that delivers good picture quality at a relatively low price.
