Good TV, Only 1 Audio In, Looks bad on Dark Scenes

Summary: The Spec sheet speaks for the TV pretty well , here are the important parts and my take on the features Out of the box everything was in good working order. It took me a few minutes to figure out how to assemble the base (there is a hook that base has to go over) Once assembled everything worked great, except the sound. I had a 32" CRT with great sound and I couldn't even hear the TV across the room. But I expected this TV and other LED TVs to have bad sound.
Summary: I bought this TV one month ago for $850 (including $100 Amazon.com credit). I read most of reviews here and worried a bit about delivery damage and poor quality control but I pull the trigger anyway as the price came down. Third party delievery was on time and delivery man also set up the TV to make sure it has no initial issue. Picture quality is excellent. I have 4 year old Sharp LCD and it is not match to this Panasonic.
Summary: We needed a bigger TV since we remodeled and enlarged our family room/kitchen area. I originally wanted a 55" Samsung LED because we've had great experience with our 40" Samsung. However, the price and feature set of this Panasonic TV, coupled with positive reviews from multiple sources (including Consumer Reports), make this a better value than the comparable Samsung. The Amazon price was incredibly lower than the brick and mortar stores.
Summary: I purchased this particular television because of its size class, smart TV functions, the multiple positive reviews it received and price. I have never had a smart TV before, or a TV this size. I was concerned about the packaging as many reviews said it was inadequate and the TV ended up with minor damage on occasion.
Summary: This is a great TV, no doubt about it. ISP panels certainly have an advantage over the technologies used by other LCD brands. Viewing angles are superb. For an edge-lit LED/LCD, this is as uniform backlighting as I have seen. You can only see a few hot spots when there no signal to the set -- and even then, they are not nearly as "hot" as the Samsung 55" which I also own.
Summary: Wanted to give 2 stars but giving 4, it is 2 or worse for mess up caused by Amazon but it is 4 stars for the product. Have been using it for 3 weeks now, so far image is great but sound can be better.
