Element ELSW3917BF 39-inch TV review with full HD warning

Another new Element TV model for 2017 that is going to be very popular to buy this month is the Element ELSW3917BF 39″ inch Class Smart TV from Walmart which will be available for another crazy price that will surely tempt a lot of consumers into a purchase.

We’re actually very surprised to see however that Walmart are still willing to ship non full HD TVs to unsuspecting buyers in 2017 given today’s standards.

The Element ELSW3917BF specs include a 39-inch display which is 720p HD quality only and not full HD. Other features include a 60Hz refresh rate, 3 HDMI inputs and built-in WiFi for watching Smart apps such as Netflix, Vudu, YouTube and Hulu.

Given that this TV is not full HD, it is definitely not suitable as a gaming TV for PS4 and Xbox One owners and we can only recommend it as a secondary TV option for a bedroom for those needing a new one for your children.

What is also alarming to us, is that over on Walmart’s listing for this TV, it is advertised as being a ‘Full HD resolution TV’ which is obviously not the case. You can see evidence of this below and we don’t want anyone to be mislead when they head to the shops and buy it this November.

Furthermore, this model is not even listed on the manufacturer’s website over at Element Electronics which might be additional cause for concern.

There are currently zero Element ELSW3917BF reviews online either at the time of writing so some of you may be faced with making a ‘blind’ purchase as with many other budget TV sets that always appear at this time of the year.

Do you have good or bad experience with the Element TV brand? Share your thoughts on this model below. Buy it here from Walmart if you are happy with it being 720p only and not full HD 1080p.

The problem here is fake ad , not the fact it is 720p or not. If you don’t game, if you do not have HD cable, if you just don’t care about picture quality, it’s just fine. But don’t lie about it, SHAME!

720p is just fine for any TV under 40.” You will not notice a difference between 1080p and 720p on this size at a normal viewing distance of 6 feet or more.

Pathetic. Who sells a 720p TV in 2017? Even the 40″ Element last year was 1080p. Walmart should be ashamed.

looks like a copy and paste job from walmart but $125 for this smart TV is still great for my kids! full hd or not.
