Very limitted support for audio out for surround sound.

Summary: With a tv this size you would expect an owner to automatically bypass the tv speakers in favor of a surround system. However, you an only use an Optical output if you want to do so. Even cheaper televisions have a standard rca audio plug output for audio ... Not this one though.
Summary: We have owned since 2/11. I will not give it a 5 because some channels are grainy sometimes, a tiny black spec appeared on the middle of the screen shortly after receiving, the adapter is not included and I was not told this (found out via research prior to purchasing). I purchased from shopnbc and it included 4 pairs of 3d glasses, a blu ray player and a stand; tv is no longer available. I love the large picture and 99% of the channels/movies we watch.
Summary: When looking at these TVs I looked at all reviews I could find. The TV it self is fantastic! I am a hockey fan and the ice looks good enough to make enveryone in the room feel cold while watching it. I have had no problems with the TV, knock on wood, and would recommend it to anyone who wants the screen size without breaking the bank on competitor TVs. 2 Suggestions: 1. Get straps to ensure this TV doesn't fall over on your kids.
Summary: I wouldn't really consider myself an audio visual snob, but I definitely take time to do my research before buying most AV equipment (I'll admit, I've purchase some speakers/subs off of Craigslist, sight unseen or heard, for that matter). I'm glad I pulled the trigger on this TV when I did as the price went up $200 the day after I bought this set from Paul's TV. (I paid $1799 - shipped). The picture is stunning, and big....really big.
Summary: Pros ========== Price for large screen(1/3 cost compared to LED sets) super performance for night time viewing Cons ========== internet apps are useless(if I had to buy again..I would get the 642 model) daytime viewing is not that great Some observations ================== Remember to use high speed hdmi cables. There seems to be a handshake issue with other types of cables. Picture out of box is very good(natural mode). To get a great picture, need to calibrate the TV.
