Best I have owned

Benjamin L., Amazon
8 July 2010
  • Summary: Granted, I ordered the TV in the winter time and live in the Midwest. I was expecting it to be delayed, as the many blizzards that rip through this area during this time of the year. What I was not expecting was making all the calls I did just to track my TV down!!

NIce Tv, delivery slow

Rambling Rose, Amazon
1 July 2010
  • Summary: If you must pay a bit more and have UPS ship it, I would highly recommend doing that. The money you save is not worth the hassle that this shipper caused me. This TV is stunning. It has a great picture and look to the screen quality.

Phenominal

Greg H., Newegg
20 April 2010
  • Summary: I got it for $100 less than BB due to a daily special from Newegg. Great price for a great tv. It would have received 5 stars had there been an S-Video connection
  • Pros: For a 60mhz system this picture is great. I have not noticed any ghosting or other fast motion anomolies. Plenty of HDMI ports. The sound quality is good (not great) for TV speakers alone.
  • Cons: No S-Video input. Yea I know S-video is outdated, but the Directv box in my bedrrom is only standard def.

"White glove" delivery ?

James Woodlock, Amazon
1 February 2010
  • Summary: The TV is everything it's supposed to be. I upgraded from a projection SD TV so this one is fabulous. The delivery wasn't so fabulous. The so called "white glove" service was more like "brown glove". It was two days late from the scheduled delivery, nobody ever called.

First Time

L. Webster, Amazon
22 December 2009
  • Summary: This is my first LCD. I am 72 and not tech savy. It arrived as promised and was unpacked by the shipper and set up on its stand. I was told not to run it for at least 2 hours so that it could warm up because when it arrived we were having temps in the low 20's.

Best bang 4 the buck

Norse Rider, Amazon
12 December 2009
  • Summary: This is my first HDTV, but I've been watching HD at friends places for a few years now. This TV has everything I was looking for - a great picture, multiple HDMI inputs (for cable box, gaming console and stereo), swivel stand and top brand. For $750 I consider it a bargin.

Great TV

Amazon Customer, Amazon
12 December 2009
  • Summary: Looks great, If you are worried, the red border is not garish or really noticeable on the frame. My son set it up by himself and adjusted the widescreen to automatic and we were up and running. We have really enjoyed the TV.

Great TV, adequate sound

Teneisha Olivierre, Amazon
12 December 2009
  • Summary: I got this TV with the free Blu-ray player and HDMI cable. Ordered on 7/28, the blu-ray player arrived on 7/30 and the TV on the 8/1, using the free shipping option. TV delivered by CEVA, which I'd never heard of but they were very courteous, called the day before to set up delivery and showed up on...

HDTV

Trevor W., Amazon
11 December 2009
  • Summary: This TV is great. Especially for the price. When I first switched over to HD, the difference is amazing. As far as this tv goes, the picture is very good. Sound is alright if you are just listening through the TV speackers. The Touch of Color is almost non-existent and seems to be a marketing ploy.

Very nice 40in LCD

Christopher F., Newegg
7 December 2009
  • Summary: I have watched Blu Ray movies and HD sports on this alerady and they look amazing. I give 4 eggs only because I am still tweaking the settings to give a better view. Its not perfect in my book, but great price sub 600 w/Cashback.
  • Pros: I got this with a BF deal, and it has worked out well so far. A lot of connections and tuning options available for color and audio. Blacks are good, and can even be adjusted to your liking. No dead pixels in mine, but I got mine through D3LL. Sorry NE. I have it hooked up to my HTPC, DVD player,...
  • Cons: Front function buttons blend into the tv, so by the time you find what button you want to push, someone in the room would have found the remote.
