Excerpt: We got this TV at a bargain price and got about that much use out of it. My husband put it in his home office and plays CNBC on it all day. In 4.5 months it already has the ticker burned in the bottom. Granted he plays it all day but they go to commercial a lot, come on. The color is now fading after 10 months of use too. The high def qualities are still there but really, it's looking worse than our traditional CRT TV's. Very disappointing.
