Excerpt: I recently got this TV to replace an old 57" projection TV. Although I really liked the old TV, this one is even better! It is much, MUCH thinner so it doesn't take up so much room. It is so light that I feel comfortable lifting/moving it on my own to clean around it. The picture is much more clear, even on the channels that are not broadcast in HD. The HD content is so incredibly crisp, that it seems like the actors on screen are right in the room in front of you. ...
Excerpt: We got this TV to replace an older big screen, and I was blown away by the difference in picture quality!! It is super light and easy to move, but it is sturdy enough that I don't have to worry about my small Children knocking it off the TV stand. The picture quality is amazing! The colors are so vibrant, and the picture is crystal clear. Now when I'm watching the game I can feel like I am right there on the field with the players.

Summary: Many people are having problems with this tv. After just a couple of years, it begins to go black and you have to turn the tv off, then back on to get a picture. It lasts like this for a few months, then finally burns out on you. There is a replacement part that you can buy on the internet for about $125 bucks to repair, but who wants to repair an expensive tv in just a couple of years use. DO NOT BUY this tv. Phillips will not do anything about this problem.
