Excellent product, high learning curve
24 November 2013
Summary: Takes a lot of initial setup. The serious reviewers' tips on the Amazon.com product page helped a lot. Regular DVD playback shows wavering in semi-lighted or pan-shots, but HD programming is simply amazing to watch on this.
Summary: Bought this about 5 weeks ago. The picture is out of this world and I have had no issues with it so far. The sound is awful, however. My next purchase is surround sound. I would recommend this TV to anyone, as long as they get external speakers to go with it.
Summary: I only gave this 4 stars because 5 stars represents "perfect" to me, and I doubt any product out there made is "perfect". First of all I like most am not rich and this kind of money for a tv is insane. But if you've decided to upgrade your older lcd (or) finallys witch from your crt, and you were planning to try and spend around $1000 or $1200 tops, I'd really suggest you wait, if it takes 6 months, wait, and save enough money for a great tv like this.
Summary: I have read the reviews prior to purchasing and heard about the uneven backlighting and the auto dimming and the light corners... I looked at it on display at best buy and it looked great. To my disadvantage what was displaying at best buy was a very bright video. I am upgrading from a 42" HP Plasma tv from around 2006.
Summary: I liked my LED TV. It was my second after using LCD for sometime. Picture quality was amazing. Sound was not that great but it was as expected. I did not like the edge litting effect. Although HD and blue ray is amazing, when you go back to SD channels you might see distorted figure... Overall a good buy but a little more expensive if you consider what it had to offer over LCD.
Summary: The first TV arrived with a concern with the LED screen. After contacting Amazon customer service and some time without a TV will received the second TV. Overall the is a visually beautiful tv and overall picture quality is great. The black colors are real black. Sound is fine but hoping in the future I'll get a sound system connected. Only issue so far is in the mute mode. We hear a scratching sound coming from the speakers. Not noticed during normal listening mode.
Summary: I bought this unit on black friday from Amazon at a good price. Delivery was within 4 days with no problems encountered. One person setup was fairly easy due to unit thinness and light-weight. Cable-fed HDTV channel displays are great, DVD player up-convert movies significantly better and blu-ray disc movies really superb (240Hz is worthwhile).
Summary: I was a bit leary of ordering something like this over the internet, but the experience was awesome. This is a great TV, but the sound quality is the only reason I don't give it 5 stars. There is absolutely no base - everything sounds "tinny". I will likely get a home theater system to complement the TV. I saw many other reviews that said the same thing... believe it. This is the best picture in the biz, don't let the low grades on sound keep you from buying it.
Summary: Not quite sure if the picture is any better than the 120 hz. We haven't watched blu-ray discs on it yet, but with cable it's about the same as 120 hz. Overall we are very pleased with our purchase.
