Depth This TV is thicker than average with a depth of 15.1″. If you plan to mount it on the wall, you may consider a thinner model. – Mitsubishi WD-60638 Review
Frame Standard, multiple-level design with some space between the screen and the bezel. Single-level designs can provide a seamless look that is preferred by some consumers.
Speakers Speakers provide 20 watts of total output power, which is about average. – Mitsubishi WD-60638 Review
HDMI Provides 3 HDMI inputs so that you can connect a cable box and two other devices such as a DVD player and video game console. Do you need to connect a PC as well?
