Summary: Have had this TV for almost 3 years now and it still looks great. I love it. Great picture, decent sound (for TV speakers) and lots of inputs. Definitely recommend it. Only two issues keeping it from a 5 star: 1. It gets HOT. And in a small room it actually can make the room considerably warmer, especially if running a computer and/or gaming station too.
Summary: PRO: Color reproduction/depth is great, & we are very happy with the quality of the picture. Having said that, I must warn you that I personally have worn glasses all my life, not coke bottle glasses, but I am used to things being a bit fuzzy and well, I don't really get the appeal of seeing a newscaster's every last blemish up close, so I am not that critical as long as there are no glaring imperfections.
Summary: This is my first HDTV so I always wanted to buy the best in the market. I've read lot of reviews and finally settled for this TV. To my surprise this exceeds all my expectations. I must say that this piece is a visual treat, the colors are very natural and crisp. Now I feel so happy to wait so loooong before I settle on this beauty. I've not explored all the options so can not comment how the viera cast, THX etc works.
Summary: I looked forever for a new TV that 1.did not pixilate 2. fairly inexpensive, looked decent. I looked forever at lcd, leds, and plasma- I finally picked this one becuse a friend just got a LG plasma and it looked awesome. I took this one because it WAS on sale and had free shipping- plus the reviews were tops everywhere I looked. It shipped a little slower than I had hoped,(it was free so....) but arrived in one piece- he box was not damaged at all.
