The number of ports is limited and it comes with only two HDMI ports. However, the ports are well placed. RCA LED32C45RQ is not a slim TV but is not the thickest one either.

RCA LED32C45RQ features and specification

RCA LED32C45RQ HDTV comes with two 8W speakers. 8W-10W speakers are common in LCD LED TVs nowadays. It doesn’t produce great sound effect but will not disappoint you. Nowadays, speakers are facing downwards. So, if your HDTV is wall mounted, you won’t get the same effect as when the TV is placed on stand. For great output, you need to hook up surround sound units. It also supports SAP/MTS

The refreshing rate of RCA is 60Hz. Many brands are now offering 120 Hz or 240Hz refreshing rate. Visually, it won’t make any difference, unless you are watching fast sports or playing games with higher frame rate. Higher refreshing rate is required for 3D HDTV because two images are getting formed there. The contrast ratio is 3500:01. The viewing angle it supports is 176/176 horizontal/vertical.
