Summary: I purchased this tv in May of 2013. pros, great picture, tons of ways to customize, fast start up, great price for the size and features, I simply love the look of the sleek silver frame compared to lower end model (black frames). cons, light white clouds during extremely dark scenes (expected though in this price range and I will not spend 7k plus to get a tv without this issue. The physical quality of the display is really vexing however.
Summary: About 5 weeks after purchasing the brand new 3D 70", it started to go haywire. The 3D glasses feature would pop up automatically while you were in the middle of watching it. Things would flicker and activate automatically. I love the TV if it would act right. Called a tech to come out this week and they will have to change out the entire TV computer board. If you plan to buy this TV, it's so expensive, I wouldn't purchase it again without a warranty.
