Summary: WOW! Fabulous!! 4.5 stars I have researched LCD TVs for quite a while: about 7 months. I was set on purchasing the SONY XBR4 series, but could not justify paying $2400 - $3400 for a TV. So I just kept reading reviews from CNET and the AVS Forums, in addition to Amazon reviews. Eventually I settled on this one. I have had this TV for about 2 months. I am very pleased with the quality of the TV in terms of aesthetics, and signal output.
Summary: I held off buying a hi def TV for two reasons: 1. They were stupid expensive 2. None of them had a consistently great image Around Christmas time 2007 price issue seemed to go away and with features like 120hz panels and image smoothing using frame interpolation it seemed like the image quality was getting better (consistently). This set seemed like a perfect balance of price and features. The image has been fantastic, it really looks great..
Summary: I am pretty impressed with this t.v. It is pleasing to the eye. The picture is clear, and the color quality is nice. I like that it puts the t.v. channels in order, unlike my last HDTV. It is pretty fair at stretching an image to fit the screen (not perfect, but good). It is really good for gaming. My kids love to run a cord from the computer to the t.v., and play on-line games with it, a rather nice feature. I dislike the glare factor, but it could be worse.
Summary: this is a very good tv if you have a totally dark room. only reason why i didn't give it a 5 star is that there is a glare when you have the light on and it hit either the border or the screen. so be warn that there is a glare. other than that, the picture is great.
Summary: ORIGINAL: Just my opinion, but I think the LNT4065F is a better value right now (as of 02/2008) until "true" 120hz LCD HDTVs are widely available in the US. This TV has a beautiful picture but why pay the extra money for 120hz when it cannot due 5:5 pulldown of 24p sources and can cause the Triple Ball Effect. The 120hz is a useless feature unless you have a true 120hz source input.
Summary: I've owned a 4071 since November, and I'm very happy with it overall. It's generally a beautiful display, but a few small quirks keep it from being perfect: 1. On small objects moving horizontally, you'll occasionally get a "triple ball" effect, where ghost images of, say, the football or baseball you're watching will appear ahead of and behind the object. This occurs even when the 120Hz feature is turned off on my set. 2.
Summary: i do very much like this set. i think it has the best picture of any lcd out right now and i do mean compared to the sony xbr4/5, toshiba regza cinema series and the sharp aqueous models. for the money it cannot be touched and in absolute terms only a pioneer kuro is going to give a better image. if you are a moive watcher like i am then beware of using this set with bd and hd dvd players at 1080p/24.
