Summary: I bought this 50" tv on sale for 750.00 as an extra tv for the house but liked it so much that I made it my main tv. The great apps available are awesome plus being able to customize the tv to display the apps you want is cool. The iPhone app rocks, you can send videos directly from your phone to the tv wirelessly and the upscale looks clean. You can start a you tube or netflix video on your phone and finish it on the tv seamlessly.
Summary: Best picture quality for under 1000 dollars by far! Much better build quality than Samsung or LG. Sony was twice the price and had less features. Built in wireless is solid. Netflix streaming in HD: Awesome! We use the ET60 for Xbox and Movies. Plays Halo 4 and Call of Duty with no noticeable lag in game mode. We are happy with this TV.
Summary: I bought this TV to watch cable and DVDs – but discovered that it is so much more. There are so many apps that I can download including games and news feeds. I have the TV linked to my Netflix, Amazon Prime, and HULU accounts so I can stream vided straight to the TV. Entering text using the TV remote control was a pain. So I purchased the Logitech Wireless Keyboard/mouse and plugged the USB dongle into the side of the TV.
Summary: Absolutely Stunning Picture!!! I cannot believe that they are selling this set at this price. I am telling you this panel rivals the W900A from Sony. One big difference though, This Viera is under 900.00. The Sony is more than double the price. If your in the market for a HDTV, stop looking/researching. this is the set to buy.
Summary: This TV has a great picture, sound, and Smart TV functions. There is one big takeaway that you will need to know, if you don't want Tyson Chicken to sponsor your volume! After about a month, ads started popping up on my TV. You must manually turn this off. I previously rated this TV down because of this, but since you can remove the advertisement function (Thanks Ray Y.)...I increased the rating to 5 stars.
Summary: Picture quality is excellent for a tv in this price range. Not many tvs this size at this price. The biggest drawback to me is that the screen is plastic. You can tell just by looking at it when it's off. It looks cheap, not like a glass screen would look, but again, at this price...Once turned on though, tv looks great. One other issue is that when turning the tv on, it's difficult to tell whether its on or not. It doesn't make a sound.
