Summary: This TV is a great product. I am not one to delve into metrics to describe a product unless warranted. This does not require an analysis. Strictly from a users perspective I can only say wow! I saw several reviews about banding and was concerned however mine was received in perfect condition.
Summary: Let me start out with this is the absolute best picture I've seen! period. it's hard to remember that this is an LED TV and not plasma. I read all the reviews and went to all the local stores to look at the TV and compare with others and nothing came close.
Summary: Picture is great. As could be expected, the sound is weak. However, once I connected it to a Sony A/V receiver, it could not be better! Everything runs through one HDMI to the TV. My Dish remote turns on the TV, and the A/V receiver is linked to the TV, so it turns on at the same time.
