Summary: I took a chance buying this TV but I found a great deal and got it for less than $100. I had read all the negative reviews here on Amazon but I thought it was worth the risk for that price. Overall, I'm glad I bought it.
Summary: I picked up this TV at a local store for around $230. It was a hell of a deal, but it isn't the best TV on the market. The contrast balance is pretty wonky -- the blacks aren't very black, and everything is very dark. It takes some time to tweak the visual settings to acceptable levels.
