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. But if I hadn't gotten such an absurdly large discount, I would probably be pretty upset right now. Just like how other reviewers have described, my unit has the problem where it fails to turn on sometimes.
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. I've also found that component inputs often look better than HDMI, at least in the case of my XBOX. That's downright weird.
