Summary: It worked for five months really well, but then stopped powering up at all. We've tried all the suggested home fixes, but nothing worked. For the price we paid, it was like renting a TV for a ridiculously high price per month. And now, we have to either fix it or dispose of the carcass.
Pros: Worked great when it worked. Nice picture quality, interesting features (the Internet based features, streaming, etc).
Cons: It broke. This was a refurbished unit, so we were taking a risk. The risk did not pay off.
Summary: I knew the model was slightly older but it's missing out on some features/upgrades. I've tried to stream thru the internet function on the TV but the flash player isn't compatible (too old) and they are not upgrading it.i typically keep items for years, but probably not this.

Summary: The setup was easy, the picture is good and the wifi is very good. The sound was horrible, though, I had to shell out for a sound bar. The "magic" remote is a pain in the neck; as pointing devices go it's only barely adequate in most cases for the smart TV functions (including browsing) and it makes...
Cons: Once I put everything together the base on this was NOT sturdy at all. All the screws have been checked multiple time. The ones in to the back of the set are perfect, but the ones going in to the base allow for a lot of play. I am considering trying to find some screws that are a bit longer to se...
