Summary: I was in the TV market for some time looking for something worth the money and something I can enjoy too. Checked last Thanksgiving but couldn't find anything tempting. Was juggling between passive or active 3D. Passive 3D LED TVs were limited with only Vizio and LG and I was not too much impressed by those offerings. So was looking for some new offering in 2012 in passive world from S : Sony, Samsung, Sharp,... but was disappointed.
Summary: The BLU-RAY movies color, clarity, sharpness etc is AWESOME and amazing in this TV. The quality of this TV needs to be judged @ 1080P signal and that is only possible with a Blu-ray or equivalent signal. The reason i mention this is because like many of us i also have cable TV and the standard definition is @ 480i is good but not the best to watch @ 60" and within 10 feet. HD channels are better but still have motion blur which is noticeable.
Summary: I've only had this TV for a few days, so I'm relating just my out-of-box experience, but I have to say so far I'm very impressed. The picture is gorgeous, bar none, I'm so happy with that. When I first plugged it in and turned it on, it was bright like a tanning bed, so I turned the backlight way down to a reasonable level and it was much easier to watch.
Summary: The TV is nothing short of increadible. It has the most vibrant and true colors I've ever seen on a TV. The settings are all-inclusive, so you can adjust everything exactly to your liking. When I first powered it on it came up in 'Standard' mode, which was very dim, even with the amount of light I had in the room. I adjusted it to 'Dynamic' and customized some of the settings, like the lower range of APC and it's amazing!
Summary: Amazing is the only word to describe this TV. The bezel is small and the stand is rock solid, it looks great even when off. When you turn it on your jaw drops at the bright, colorful, razor sharp picture. This TV has just about every feature you can imagine. How cool is it to effortlessly switch from TV to Netflix to stored files. I have not tried the 3D yet so hopefully that will not disappoint. Only a few minor issues keep this from being 5 stars.
Summary: I play a lot of online multiplayer games that require fast reflexes such as Tekken 6, Super Street Fighter 4 and Killzone 3, so game input lag is a huge deal for me. It can make or break any gamer. I was tempted to buy Samsung D8000 55-inch until I found that it has game lag of 66ms or 4 full frames/second. Simply unacceptable! So on to this TV: When gaming, make sure to change the AV Mode to "GAME" for optimal no-lag experience!
