Summary: I never write reviews but I hate this tv so much that I'm going to take the time to warn others away from it. It is horrible! Do not buy!!! Spend a little bit more and save yourself the frustration, I started having problems within a few months and now the tv doesn't work at all. I can't turn it on!!!!! Sucky brand and sucky tv!!! Stay away!!!!!
Summary: Don't be cheap like me. I regret it now. A television is supposed to last you and your family many years of good memories....therefore, skip this television. It turns on, PS3 to HDMI connects, and the TV works but the overall quality is just bad. The blacks on this television is horrible.
Summary: My wife and I needed a replacement for a used TV we had for 4 years, so we searched online and found this for $300 and felt the timing was perfect. The picture and quality were a huge improvement over what we were using, and I was extremely happy with our purchase. About two months later ( just a couple of days ago) the TV would no longer turn on. It was getting power, but just wouldnt come on, the power lite would get brighter, than dim.
Summary: This TV is cheap, not just inexpensive, cheap. I would not buy this TV as my main TV. I put it in a bedroom so it is much easier for me to deal with its quirks and imperfections as I am not watching this set the most in my home. It has a good picture (if left in energy saving mode) and poor sound quality.
Summary: THE PICTURE AND SOUND ARE GREAT AS I HAVE HOOKED IT UP TO A SONY RECEIVER. I ALSO LIKE THE ADDITIONAL PORTS FOR CONNECTING OTHER ELECTRONIC DEVICES, SUCH AS DVD, VCR.COMPUTER ETC. AS OF NOW, A GREAT PRODUCT FOR MY PARTICULAR USES.
Summary: I bought this TV (40" 4026) with low expectations AFTER reading the reviews, but loved the $299 price point for a 3rd TV for the bedroom. I own 2 Panasonic Viera Plasma's ('07 50" and '11 60"), so I know what an HDTV should look like. I even asked myself "How bad could it really be?". I now have my answer, bad. What I liked: Price ($299 when purchased, $465 at time of review, sooo...). Picture is nice in bright scenes. Light, thin and easy to mount.
Summary: Most reviews here were dead on! Pretty bad flashlight effect during dark scenes. Flashlight meaning it looks like there is a light coming from the corners of the screen. Not noticeable during normal tv watching, only with dark scenes. Sound quality could be better. It does take a while to actually turn on after pressing power button. I bought this for my bedroom and eventually it will be the guest room tv. I got it on sale for $299..... For that price, it's a great tv!
