Input Ports*(6.5)*


The LC-40E67UN has a decent selection of input ports on the back and right side of the screen; on the side is a single HDMI and a composite video and audio input. The rest of the ports are on the back, on the left side of the case (looking from the back of the screen). These ports include 3 HDMI (with an accompanying analog audio input), two component video, one S-Video and two analog video inputs. That should be enough to ensure that every device gets a port on most home theater setups.

Output Ports*(3.0)*


There are relatively few output ports on the LC-40E67UN; you get a single digital optical audio output and a stereo analog out. There is no way to output video from this screen; if you want to run more than one device, you'll need to use a splitter.

 

Other Connections*(0.0)*


The only other connections on this display are two service ports; a serial port on the back and a USB port on the side. Neither of these is much use to most people, but they are useful for professional calibrators who can use these to delve into the inner workings of the display for maximum tweakage.

 

Media*(0.0)*


This display has no media ports; you cannot connect a USB device and play back music, videos or photos.

 

Placement*(4.75)*


The ports are reasonably well placed: the ones on the left side of the display are easy to reach, and the ones on the back are also easy to reach by reaching around the side of the screen. The ports are oddly labeled, though; instead of being labeled by type, they are labeled by number, from 1 to 8. This could be a little confusing if you don't remember which port is which, especially if the display is wall mounted, where you can't see the labels, as there is no indication from the on-screen menu of what type each of the ports is.
