Summary: I have owned this TV since November 2011 and thought I had done my research. Well, not enough apparently. Pros: -AMAZING picture in MOST (see cons) 2D situations. -TV is sleek, thin and beautiful -Easy to tilt/turn Cons: -Since this is one step down from the full-array LED TV, you will likely notice blotchy patches of light on a black screen or very dark scenes. Not a huge deal, but kind of annoying.
Summary: This TV looks great and sounds great. It has all the features I wanted. Here is a list of a few cons. 1. GUI is a bit slow. especially during booting up time. 2. NetFlix has no "closed caption" feature. and the UI is a lot worse than what we have on a Sharp 40LE830U (also from Amazon. great product, BTW) 3. VUDU is not included in the apps 4. no asian language support. (most of my youtube video subscriptions and favorites are displayed in ) These are very minor.
