Screens are important but how you put the video on the screen is just as important. This 40 inch 40D100 TV has the following input output specs. It has 3 HDMI ports , 1 component input , 1 composite input , 1 USB ports , 1 audio-out port , 1 RF cable input . Three HDMI ports is fine for most consumers. Composite inputs are hardly supported by manufacturers and for a very good reason, it is ancient technology considering televisions of today. Component input connections are much more common on televisions due to the fact they are able to transmit up to 1080p resolution. All in all, the hardware of a TV can be just as important as the size and resolution of the screen. Video in connections, internet connections, and even the audio out connections can influence the quality of your experience. Choosing the right TV can be difficult. You should always take a look at the whole TV, not just how big the screen is!

The 40D100 is a member of TCL's D100 series. The 2 other models belonging to the D100 series consist of the 32-inch 32D100 and the 49-inch 49D100.

The Size
