Summary: I've had this TV going on almost 4 years, no problems, or issues. Screen clarity is stll sharp as the day I got it. I added a sound bar because the TV speakers are not too great. Since adding that soundbar though, watching movies is a treat! Gaming is also awesome.

Summary: This is an awesome T.V I will call it a warhorse among T.Vs. I am using it for more than 9 months now. I live alone so I did all the set up myself. It took about half an hour to do it. The performance is Fantastic and I would suggest this T.V to anyone. The price compared to other T.Vs is great too.
Summary: first 1080p tv. bought from bestbuy so as expected we paid about $80 more from what is the listed price here on amazon. out of the box, tv looks ok. i've seen lots of tv's with prettier bezel than this from other brands. but not really a big deal.
Love the picture, but have had problems with this TV

Summary: I bought this TV 3 weeks ago. It was very easy to integrate it into an existing home theater set up. The picture was very dark from day 1. I found the filters in the Menu and turned them off and the picture improved nicely. But I found that everything on the screen was too green.
Summary: I got this to replace a similiar hitachi that I had for just a few days. The hitachi had backlighting issues where the top corners had the flashlight effect and it was very annoying during dark scenes. The hitachi did have a beautiful picture other than this one issue.
Summary: I actually purchased this @ Sears on 11/14/10. They were running their Friends and Family sale. I got it for $675 plus a rebate of $75 and a free Panasonic Home Theater System ($200 retail value-but like getting it for $100 if I had been able to take advantage of this deal @$500).
Summary: First I'm not a Techno guy nor do I nitpick. I watch TV a couple of hours a day usually DIY, Food Network, HGTV, Discovery, Travel, you get the idea and some sports mainly basketball and baseball. It took me two minutes to hook this TV up to my Dish Network HD receiver.
Summary: We couldn't afford the 2nd plasma we wanted so I decided to purchase this instead. It's a great tv with an amazing picture. Delivery was fast and considering how big this is, was perfectly fine when UPS delivered it, no damage :) Ok, so the black isn't as rich as a plasma but the picture is still...
Summary: Bought this tv in Mar 2011 and so far it is an excellent tv with a great picture. Have hdmi hooked up to directv and it looks fantastic. The 120hz refresh rate is very good for a television in this price range and is in my opinion an excellent bargain.
