Summary: I did my homework before buying this television, and I'm glad I did. The picture quality is superb, and the power consumption is only 90 W. Turn on the energy saver (which has 3 levels), and it goes even lower. I would recommend this television to anyone looking for a great mid-size flatscreen and doesn't want any of that 3D nonsense.
Summary: television broke after one year of use. Was never offered a warranty or an extended warranty. This company does not offer a warranty past one year. I paid almost $1400 for this television, I would have got an extended warranty if offered one. The television was nice whileit lasted, but VANN's Inc is a bad company to work with. I tried to be friendly and the staff was very rude, I don't think they realize I help pay some of their salary.
Pros: Awesome picture: - Deep blacks - Sharp image, even with action scenes/video games Input/Output: - Very comprehensive input and output terminals Functionality: - Reliable USB wireless internet Form: - Beautiful looking set - VERY thin
Cons: Image: - White bleed over/ghosting into black areas in very dark scenes (doesn't bother most people) - TV has a glass pane covering screen, adding significantly to glare. Form: - HEAVY for LED (2-3 man lift)
Summary: I am extremely pleased with this TV so I bought another one 55" with 3D. Inky blacks, I mean really black, as black as black can be. Beautiful colors. Easy set up with Image Science Foundation approved calibration controls. THX certified picture. There aren't many TVs that are to THX certification standards for picture quality & acurate reproduction of color. The speakers are not very good. The Picture & ease of set up are fantastic. The remote is very good.
Summary: Did A LOT of research prior to purchasing this unit. Long story short everything I read pointed me to this unit. I then checked the unit and setup at many locations until I finally pulled the trigger. The main concern I had prior to purchasing this unit was the glare that I observed as well as is documented in other product reviews on this unit. This is a result of the solid glass panel which covers the entire screen.
