Setup not so easy but great TV

Summary: This is our first flat screen. We have had it 3 months now. It included some sort of enhanced delivery/setup but all the delivery guy did was uncrate the TV and plug it in to make sure the thing powered up. Of course the stand has to be assembled and attached to the TV. Ports on the back are clearly marked. Your devices should be attached and powered up for the TV to recognize them but that is pretty much all you have to do for the initial setup.
Summary: Beautiful tv super thin and amazing picture. Now the few tiny details. We have cable internet with wifi. The wireless antenna in the tv is ok not great and if you really want to use the Smart part of the tv such as internet browser streaming content etc, we ran a cat 6 cable thru the attic straight to the modem.
Summary: I have the 64 inch version and it is the perfect hub for our family media room. Picture is just stunning compared with the LCD TV it replaced. My son's XBox graphics with motion are simply amazing. We love the impressive 3D performance, and just wish Amazon had 3D content available to rent since 3D blueray disks are still in the $30 range. I get 45 channels of over the air TV and it is all amazingly clear and crisp.
Summary: I read so much stuff about this TV. A lot good and a lot bad. Amazon'a scratch n dent selection was very tempting because of the price. I've read delivery nightmares, sound quality reviews, picture quality reviews etc, etc. I eventually just said "go for it and find out". Absolutely everything about this experience was terrific. I love, love my TV. I can put my movies on a flash drive in almost any format and plug it in the TV and watch.
Summary: I love the TV, the 2D to 3D converts works terrific, I really wanted a 3D TV, for see movies with my kidm and it is great, really and amazing TV, when you play in it a Blu ray disc is amazing. The only bad thing about this, is the sound.
Summary: Fantastic Product just to get that out of the way first. Nothing short of Spectacular. I was looking at a couple tv's before i decided to purchase this Tv. The models were. 55vt50 from panasonic, as well as the 55XBR950 from Sony. Everyone knows the VT has been the #1 rated tv last 8 years according to Consumer Reports. Then the Sony XBR is always the Highest Rated LED TV year in and year out as well.
Summary: We absolutely love this TV! Fantastic 3D and HD quality, love the feautures, awesome SmartHub. With regards to a few common things people tend to complain about. Speed of SmartHub, of course it isn't going to be blazing fast. It's not a full computer, so expecting it to be as fast as the computer you're likely use to isn't exactly fair. It's fairly quick. Also, for sound quality - correct, it's not a strong point. But that's what buying speakers are for.
