Magnavox 42MF439B Television Review-Mostly Great With Some Flaws

Actually, the Magnavox 42MF439B really only has ONE flaw, but I’ll talk about that in a minute.  For right now, suffice it to say that the “mostly great” part really does apply.

The Magnavox 42MF439B is a forty two inch 1080p LCD television with two speakers, one component video input, one digital audio output, one composite video input , two S-Video inputs, two HDMI inputs and, in what may well be the biggest twist of all, a built in Blu-ray player.

This is, I believe, the first television I’ve encountered with the built in Blu-ray player, so in terms of sheer efficiency, this sucker gets extra points.  Of course, it also helps that it’s got great sound and a decent picture that DOES sport some artifacts up close, but as long as you keep a fair distance back you shouldn’t have too much trouble adapting.

And considering that you can get one of these for about seven hundred bucks on Amazon, that’s a pretty good price.  Make no mistake, the Magnavox 42MF439B is a pretty good television, so calling it mostly great with some flaws is just about right.
