Output Ports*(1.0)*


The only output port on this TV is the optical audio out.

 

Other Connections*(0.0)*


There are no other connections.

 

Media*(0.0)*


There are no additional media capabilities.

 

Placement*(7.50)*


Ports are laid out reasonably well. They're located on the right of the TV's back, either facing toward the back or out towards the side. They're indented a bit further than we'd like, but are still close to the edge. The stand also aids in your ports-based adventures by allowing the TV swivel.
