Summary: I am happy with this TV which I use in the bedroom hung high on the wall. The most outstanding characteristic of this TV is the picture quality. I calibrated it with an AVIA disk and a pair of blue glasses for movie watching, but the calibration settings listed in "Consumer Reports" actually looked a little better to my eyes.
Summary: The picture quality is very good and there are a lot of features. The setup was quick and everything works as expected. However there are too few audio inputs and outputs on this device. The headphone jack turns off the speakers and there is no override for this. The closed caption is either on or off with no on with muted sound setting. Since I use these features I'm not completely impressed with this TV. It is a good second TV for me.
Summary: This TV (32") has an awesome picture that makes even non-HD shows look great. Watching old black and white movies and tv shows is brought to life by some level of 3D sharpness and clarity. It has an econo mode for energy savings and in dark bedrooms you can set the brightness to automatically lower so it doesn't blind you or annoy your sleeping wife. The speakers are better than other models but still on the "in a can" sound.
Summary: Why I love this tv 1. I am not a super tech and I was able to set up the tv and get online with it in less than 10 after opening the package. 2. I can watch Amazon prime and Netflix without adapters.. big deal to me 3. I can plug in my external hard drives and watch movies with the USB port. 4. The picture quality is amazing and it's now the best tv in the house. 5. It has a convenient mute button for when the phone rings. 6.
Summary: TV delivered quickly & in good condition. After initial set-up, which I accomplished only with some difficulty as this is my first HD & instructions were sparse, I had a fairly good picture, though it was dark and lackluster. Contrast was already set at 100%, so I tried to improve quality with brightness & color controls. No luck. I tried various settings for two days without substantial improvement.
Summary: Its a great tv, once you do a little fine tuning in the settings. I didnt like the TruMotion, but it was easily turned off for the modes I want. Smart TV is also worth the slightly higher price. The sound is also pretty good.
Good value for money - but expect to put the work in

Summary: Ordered this as a warehouse deal, after reading enough reviews to know that it was a solid but not spectacular choice. Overall, the picture is great - IF you know how to adjust it. As many others have noted, Trumotion leads to a pretty miserable case of soapoperaitis if you don't turn it down/off.
