Summary: I purchased this tv to REPLACE the exact brand & model that my Son bought in December. The December TV was 'broken' - we thought by his 3 yr old son. The screen had a hit in it and we just presumed it was done by his son although no one saw him do it. As a housewarming gift, I replaced the TV (almost $800). Less than 2 weeks later - the same 'hit' was noticed on the TV. Only this time his son had not been allowed in the TV room (the door was closed and fastened).
Summary: I owned this for a few days and had to return it. This product has a single glaring problem: Like many HD TVs, it does not actually run at the described resolution. This is NOT a 720p display, it is 1366x768 pixels. This wouldn't be a huge problem except that it does not offer a 1:1 pixel mapping mode. Thus ALL content is always scaled to fit this incorrect "720p" resolution.
