Summary: I know televisions fairly well and am extremely picky about my electronics. I got a 46" for $400. So, expectations were tempered. At 60 Hz, they were even more tempered. This television blew me away.
Summary: I don't care about attaching an external sound system, so this TV is great. I knew 40" was going to be a big TV, but I didn't have a very good grasp on exactly how large that is. I was really pleased when I took it out of the box.
Summary: I ordered this for a spare bedroom and it worked out perfectly. The picture is great , the sound is perfect for films and tv. Best of all is the low price. This TV did not sacrifice anything to achieve the lower price.
