Summary: Hi! Just thought I'd give you my thoughts on this TV. I purchased it because it was a good value LED 40" at $600. After reading all the review available online (spent like 4 days investigating!) I decided to buy this Phillips LED tv. Image is average at best.
Summary: got this tv at costco and was excitied for the price. came home set it up and overall its a good tv. cons: takes 15 long seconds for the tv to fully turn on! crazy switching from non hd to hd channels has a weird screen distortion when converting.
Summary: We wanted a second TV for a newly finished basement, and we didn't want to pay too much so the $600-ish price was appealing. The TV is easy to set up. I did load the firmware update on a thumbdrive and updated the TV at start-up. That was easy. Some other reviews have commented on the sound.
