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: 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!
