Summary: This TV has an excellent picture. The main drawback is something I read about in other reviews and that is it takes a long time to power up, which is true. But, it seemed a small price to pay.
Summary: I bought this TV a few weeks ago when the price was down to 489 - couldn't pass it up - there were no sales taxes or shipping charges, so the purchase was an easy decision after looking around online and in tech. stores.
Summary: This is our 2nd Phillips tv and we are very pleased with its picture and performance. We did read reviews for this particular TV prior to buying it and the one thing that I read and will confirm is the fact that it takes several seconds for the TV to turn on, but that is a small inconvenience.
Summary: will continue to work on this review, but after owning for 24 hours, i like this set. downsides already noted: takes a ridiculous amount of time to power on (seriously, like 15 sec). it's pretty heavy at 33+ lbs hanging on my wall.
Summary: Bought this TV a few weeks ago. Overall its pretty awesome - easy setup, great picture, good on energy. The sound is good for general use, but if you are picky about it you may want to get a set of speakers for better sound.
