Physical Attributes

It offers 4 HDMI ports , 3 USB ports , 1 audio-out port , 1 RF cable input , 1 ethernet port and WiFi. Four HDMI ports is the most common number of ports and should be more than enough for most people. The old composite style connections are not found on many televisions this day and age for a good reason, it is considered old technology compared to the quality of new television being produced today.
