ORION HDTV Is A Great Buy.

I was at Walmart shopping for a new TV and was surprised to see that they had an ORION HDTV. To be exact the ORION 46" Class LED-LCD HDTV. I was interested right away, as I had owned an ORION some years ago, before they came out with flat screen TV's. I owned it for quite a few years, before giving it away, while still in good working order.

Anyway I had intended to buy a vizio or Samsung TV, that is until I saw the ORION HDTV, which is 46 inches, verses the Vizio which was 42 inches, and the Samsung which was 40 inches. Plus the ORION was on sale, cheaper than both of the other two TV's. So knowing ORION was a good brand I went ahead and bought it. I was definitely not disappointed. I have owned the ORION 46" Class LED-LCD HDTV for a little over three weeks now, and just love this TV. The picture is so clear and crisp, the colors are so vibrant, and you can really tell, as I watch a lot of cooking shows, and just looking at the food makes me just want to sit down and eat it.

So I got the TV home, and out of the box, and attached the base, which is only 5 screws ,and a phillip screwdriver. I plugged the cord into the back of the TV, and hooked up the cable, and put the batteries in the remote control. I turned the TV on and began the setup process., which was very easy, and I followed the instructions in the booklet which comes with the TV. You should always read the instructions first, so you know what you are doing.


The Features:

*** Intergrated Digital Tuner ( ATSC, Clear QAM )

*** Mercury Free

*** USB Playback ( JPEG/ Motion JPEG )

*** 3D comb filter

*** HDMI/ Component/ PC Input

*** Headphone/ Digital audio output ( coaxial )

More Features:

*** Convenience functions

*** Channel setup

*** Labeling channels

*** Setting the Lock

*** Closed caption

*** CC options

*** Aspect Ratio

*** Media playback

A lot more features, that I have not listed, but good deal for the $$'s!

Now we have the TV already, and we turn it on. The first thing that comes on the screen is the "Setup Wizard" menu, and this will assist you with the air/ cable hookup setting, and will automatically program the channels for you. The booklet will tell you everything you need to do all this. It is simple as that. I really don't want to bore you with everything that can be done on the Orion HDTV. Nobody ever remembers all that stuff anyway.

If you need more information on the company. They are located in Olney, Illinois, and you can visit the website at They are also available for additional help and customer service.

So all in all, I just have to say once again, how very happy I am with my Orion HDTV, and I still have yet to explore all the features that this TV has to offer, but I am looking forward to finding out. But until then, I will so enjoy watching my Orion!! One word of advice however, try to always read reviews or go with what you know when picking out any product, even reliable word of mouth is a good thing. This is what I go by. Well see ya all, till my next product review, so stay tuned.

Really? The volume on mine is great! As with any cable station it can vary in the sound volume. We have 3 T.V.'s in my home, and all are different. Though it could just be that you could get another T.V. of the same brand. I have found with other brand products, things can be inco nsistant.

Sorry Cody I don't play games on mine at the moment, but was thinking of getting a wii. What kind of games do you play, and do you rely on your local cable company for your connection.

Cody 3 years ago

Since a wii doesn't have a hdmi port it might look funny. I don't have Internet at the moment. I use a ps3. So if you want to play wii games in hd just get a wiiu because it also plays regular wii games.

Great for the $. Good picture, fyi different volume setting on menu setup. Try the difference.

Thanks for the info... They have this Orion 46" LED TV on Groupon for $299.00, which is a great price! As far as volume, most modern TV's have crappy sound... I think it is because they expect that you are going to connect them to a surround sound system. And if you do, sound is not an issue... However, most modern TVs use really crappy speakers, which is why the sound is bad.

Norsegod. I have to say the sound on mine is good. I am more about an awesome picture and color to be honest.

It's okay for the price. Volume does suck. BUT!! Mine broke and I only had it for 10 months. Nothing happened- it just decided not to turn on anymore. When I called Orion, they weren't surprised and even said there was a back order on the part needed to fix it. So obviously lots of their tv's are duds.

I am sorry to hear that. I have had mine for over a year with no problems at all. It's a hard choice when choosing a product. I always read reviews before buying something. And I have found every product seems to have something wrong with it. Some turn out to be duds.while others may last for years.

Contrast definition a big problem. Bigger problem the tint and caption are greyed out and cannot be accessed for adjustment. Blue hue around subjects eyes is very annoying. Was able to change screen resolution using an ATT UVerse Remote. Nothing on- line or You Tube to help resolve problems. Unless I am proven wrong you get what you pay for; in this case it appears cheap. 2 years ago

Im having problems with hooking up surround sound system via the red and white coax cables. I have them plugged into the surround system, but it will not send the audio out, it only plays through the tv speakers. Anyone have a way to fix this.

T Pic, sorry you are having problems with it. Perhaps there is a reset button on the TV. I don't know where my manual is or I would look it up.
