Input Ports*(8.25)*


The RCA L40FHD41 had a good selection of input ports. By our count, there were two composite videos, an S-Video, a VGA, two component videos, three HDMIs (one of which doubled as a DVI), four analog audios, and two 3.5mm audios. There's also the ubiquitous RF input. This is a really good sleection of ports, especially for such an inexpensive TV.

Output Ports*(2.0)*


Like most TVs, there aren't many output ports here. There's two analog audio outputs and one digital audio out.

 

Other Connections*(0.0)*


There aren't any other connections on the TV.

 

Media*(0.0)*


There are no other media options on this TV.

 

Placement*(7.5)*


The ports are placed close to the edge of the set, for easy access. This being said, the main port cluster is indented a bit further than we would've liked. Also, the stand doesn't swivel. Even with these issues, the RCA L40FHD41's ports are placed within easy reach.
