Summary: I will be taking this heavy, bulky, dead TV back to Costco for a full refund, because luckily for me, it totally died in less than 3 months. Otherwise I don't know what they would have done for me.
Summary: I bought mine at Costco for under $700 as a TV for our bedroom. The picture is fantastic, the setup was very simple, and its ultra thin and light. BUT, the sound generated by the two little downward firing speakers is very tinny. Almost bothersome.
Summary: We've had this television for three months - the picture and sound quality has been quite good right out of the box with very little tweaking of the settings needed. Three hdmi inputs is useful - we've used two so far. Easy assembly and setup.
Summary: I was excited when we bought this TV from Cosco for th $679 price like others to be our 2nd flat screen TV in our house. Our first is a 2 year old 40inch LCD COBY. Well we were disappointed with the picture when compared to our older LCD COBY set.
Summary: After trying a 60" visio, a 55" hisense, and a 47" JVC tv's, the jvc ap55m-c was the best. What I kept running into was backlight saturation which cause the black in the video to appear cloudy. I was unable to adjust backlight to a acceptable level without sacrificing color. I returned all 3.
best TV for under 700 absolutely best bang for the buck

Summary: this is my third flat screen I always do my research on the best bang for the buck and this blew it out of the water my first TV was a 37 720 60hz inch insignia my second TV which I still have in another room is a 50 inch Samsung1080p 120flow motion..
Summary: Are there better sets out there that do more amazing things? Yes. Can you get them at this price? No. We bought this to replace an older model LED 50" flat screen. The frame on this one is so thin that it actually takes up less wall space than the previous one.
