Design And Finish
The design of the unit is elegant. The plastics are of good quality, and overall the materials aren't at all cheap-looking despite the low price. It's proof that less can be more.
The Neovia's ergonomics are average. There are no extras, just a remote control that's fairly large and heavy, but practical. The menus are clear, but they don't offer a lot of adjustments compared to the other models we tested.
In addition to the usual equipment, there's a VGA connector and an HF transmitter. But without YUV, DVI, or HDMI, it would be difficult to make this unit HDTV compatible without using a PC.
Calibration of this set showed an obvious lack of color fidelity, visible most of all in the darkest shades. The gamma once again seems to be at fault.
Again here, the results were disastrous. The white was within the proper brightness range for a TV set, but the black was clearly too bright, resulting in a ridiculously low contrast ratio.
