Summary: this tv at these specs was a great deal at $700 . i live close to los angeles so didnt mind the pick up only option. unit was $250 below average market price.great picture quality at 1080p.hooked up my ps3 and enjoying blu-ray movies at full capacity.loving it.seller was a great person to deal with too.would recommend him to everyone.
Summary: I bought this TV from sears a month back, and have no issues with it till date. picture quality is nice and so is the visual appearance. Didn't have glossy screen problems or burn in issues till now. But most importantly for me it was a great deal as I was able to buy this for ~$650. BUT, certainly check the product before you pick up your package. The first one I ordered had a big crack on the screen, but ofcourse they took it back without any issues.
Summary: Looked at some 720p and LCD sets. Went with plasma to get better picture for the money. Glad I held out to get this 1080p THX set. Picture is incredible. Can see some faint image retention when screen goes blank sometimes. It is not bad and don't believe this is long-term concern.
Summary: Edit: 1-9-2011 I have had this tv for well over a year now. I am still very impressed by the quality and durability of this item. The colors are still displayed as they have since the first day I have owned it. The blacks are very dark and the colors are very definitive. I have had no "screen burn". If a display is left on the tv for a few hours such as a menu or the xbox home screen then it does leave a slight burn in the screen.
Summary: I was planning on waiting until black-friday to purchase a new set but, what can i say, the deal on this was too good to pass up. I've been doing homework for the past few weeks, first on plasma vs. lcd, and after deciding on that, on which plasma to buy. I was considering this, sammy 550 and panny s1. Deciding factors were the extra features this one had vs the others: THX mode, swivel stand, voice-enhanced audio, single-pane of glass.
