Pros: This TV gets extremely bright. The black levels can be very impressive. The detail and sharpness when given an excellent feed is very impressive.
Cons: The TV struggles on anything less than an optimum source. Our cable tv generally looked average to poor with some channels look significantly worse than others, almost youtube quality. My four year old Pioneer 5080HD outperforms in most situation.
Great picture if you sit right in front/center of tv.

Summary: Good television, but you have to view from center...I sent it back...television too expensive to have such a limited viewing angle. Thank you Amazon for working with me to return...I purchased a Panasonic Plasma from Amazon instead.
