Summary: Got this tv on another site (Dell @ Home) for under $450 brand new, my first big screen lcd tv & I'm in love lol. Sound from the speakers is fine compared to other reviews of other products, namely Samsung, sound being less than adequate.
Summary: bought this tv on dell @ home for just under $450 free shipping and is a nice tv. was a big step up in pq from a rear projection 51" philips, but in the end, 42" was too small so i bought a 50" plasma. this tv is in the bedroom & is a fine tv. does what it's supposed to do.
Pros: easy setup, nice bezel, good sound, works with iPad, lightweight
Cons: pixelation with dark colors while viewing programs like underwater scenes on nat geo etc, compared to a plasma, lcd isn't so hot! slow to turn on, haier has to put their name on a big blue screen before you can actually watch tv ugh.
