Summary: I BOUGHT THIS TV USED AS A DEMONSTRATOR FROM CIRCUIT CITY BACK IN EARLY 2008, I HAVE NO WAY OF TELLING HOW MANY MILES IT HAD ON IT WHEN I GOT IT. IT HAS WORKED EVERY DAY, LONG AND HARD SINCE, AND STILL LOOKS AS GOOD AS THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. IT WAS MY FIRST FLAT SCREEN.
Summary: I bought this about three years ago. WIthin a year, we started getting a wide green bar on one side of the screen. We can reset the centering of the screen to get rid of it, but if you turn it off and back on again, it comes back.
Summary: Bought this TV ~4 years ago and subsequently other flat screens for different rooms in the house. The AKAI really stands out with the best picture quality of any of my screens. Excellent contrast and crisp 1080i images when connected to digital HD cable. Great buy overall and looks great too!
Summary: I bought this TV from Price Club about 2 years ago and I still love it! The Picture is brighter and clearer than most LCD TV's I have seen to date, I also own a 47" LG 1080P LCD TV, and honestly this TV looks better for most material.
Summary: No support No warranty No one to talk to the tv it's expensive just paying for the shipping!!!! after 2 and a half year it's scrap need it parts and no one will repair it cause the part for the TV it's no longer available do not and I MEAN DO NOT BUY ANYTHING MADE BY AKAI
Summary: I bought this HDTV monitor over a year ago and I have been very happy with the quality. Never saw any problem yet and the price was great. The remote is bit too low-key but for the price its not bad.
Never buy Anything from Akai. There customer service abysmal

Summary: Simlar to other reviews. My set starting loosing color after about 10 months. It took a month to get an authorized service center, another month for them to tell me it wasn't repairable now we are in Monthy 7 and still trying to get a commitment to getting a replacement TV shipped to me.
Summary: This tv is perfect for someone who wants to save a little on money and still get a good plasma tv. The only drawbacks that I have found so far is that there is only 1 hdmi connection and the remote is very basic.
