Expert Rankings

Despite having a 720p resolution, the Sanyo FW32R19F provides access to an extensive library of content that reviewers appreciated. However, lack of HDR & 4K support, shallow blacks, HDMI 2.1 ports, and lackluster sound may drive some buyers away. But movie lovers will definitely want the Sceptre A658CV-U due to its surround sound settings.

our Verdict

The FW32R19F Sanyo Roku TV is great for movie lovers, with access to thousands of channels. But if you’re looking for the ultimate viewing experience, you may be disappointed by its lack of HDR support, hazy black levels and no 4K content. Gamers, too, will be let down by the lack of HDMI 2.1 ports, no variable refresh rate, and average sound. If you’re a casual gamer, though, the Samsung UE43RU7020 might be a better fit.
