Summary: I keep finding another piece of missing technology on this "Smart TV" I bought this locally on clearance about 4 months go. First, Hulu was not in the "Smart TV" lineup, although Netflix and Blockbuster (pay-per-view) were. So I bought an external Roku-like device for $60. I just bought headphones so I could watch TV without disturbing anyone. I could not get them to work, although there is an audio jack in the back.
Summary: Overall, I'm pretty happy with the TV considering I paid less than $500 for a refurbished one. The time that the TV takes to start wasn't really a concern unlike some other reviewers here. My views are mainly based on the Net TV usage since I don't have cable hooked up to this TV. Pros: - Even though the speakers are on the back, the sound quality is pretty awesome in my opinion for this type of TV. I haven't noticed any tinny sound.
Summary: I am writing this review without ever having turned this television on. I am doing so because I have owned this product for over five weeks and have yet to receive all of the components necessary to turn it on. I received the package with a television and stand, but no screws, power cord, or remote control. I have called many, many times and each time I am told the parts are on there way.
