What brand of TV's do you offer?
In order to keep your cost low, we supply a range of name brand televisions in two varying sizes (32" and 40"). Our suppliers range from samsung, Vizio, LG, Element, Westinghouse, etc. We don't know what specific brand will end up in your room, but since all of our TV's are HD and have the same excellent capabilities, no matter which TV you receive you can rest assured that you are getting the best there is to offer.
But doesn't the brand matter?
ABSOLUTELY - when you are BUYING a television, but not when you are RENTING one. When you purchase a television, you want to make sure that you are getting a TV that is going to last you for many years to come. But when you rent, you just need a TV that is going to be working for a year! In the unlikely event that the television stops working during the school year, simply notify us and we'll come bring you a replacement free of charge. That's peace of mind you can count on!
What is the difference between 720p and 1080p?
Resolution is the primary factor that determines the sharpness of an image. Basically, it's the difference between high definition and low definition. and is noticed when viewing at different distances and screen size. Most college dorm rooms are equipped with a wall cable outlet that broadcasts digital cable in 480p. Our TVs go a step farther and offer at least 720p on our 32" model, and the larger model displays in 1080p. For more information regarding TV size, Resolution and Viewing Distance please read more here.
My student plays a lot of video games, will they be able to hook up their games to your televisions?
YES. Our televisions are compatible with any device that uses composite a/v cables (the ones that are red, white, and yellow) or an HDMI output (the industry gold standard for high definition content). These connectors are pretty universal for any video game console. The HDMI connectivity means that students are also able to connect their laptops to their television, giving them a large screen on which to watch lectures, stream movies, practice powerpoint presentations and much more.
How will my TV be set up when I arrive in my room?
Depending on your order, your television could be set up one of a few ways. If you simply order a television, then the TV will be placed on a dresser in the assigned room. If a TV stand is ordered then it will be atop of the TV stand in a safe location in the room. If the beds have been lofted, and a TV stand has been reserved, then the TV will be placed under a lofted bed.
