Summary: I bought this for our 1st HD tv, for our living room. It is of course not as good as a $1,000 TV but I could not afford that price. I was concerned with the speaker issue several people discussed on thier reviews...BUT there is NO issue....the sound is great and I usually only have it at about 15. No need for a bigger speaker. ALSO someone complained it did not come wiht a manual...but it does, and even if they did not have one you can get it online to download.
