Conclusion

The Sylvania LC321SSX is an inexpensive TV (approx. $329), so you should expect some compromises. Some of these compromises are negligible. For instance, the port selection is lacking, and the onboard controls are awkwardly placed. Some of the compromises are a little harder to swallow, like the LC321SSX's lack of detail in shadows.

Some of the compromises are very hard to swallow, like the terrible motion performance and complete inability to support 1080p content. Do you really want a TV that can't play back Blu-Ray without first making the player downconvert the signal?

On the plus side, the LC321SSX has deep black levels and good contrast ratio. It's color performance is not terrible, overall. And it is cheap! The price tag like that has a lot of cache. In summary, if you can deal with the downsides, the Sylvania LC321SSX is not the worst TV. But be sure to read the whole review before you buy.
