Summary: As others have noted, the picture is very, very good, but the tiny speakers leave a lot desired in the sound department. We've got ours mounted in our camper, and have the sound running thru the camper's stereo system.
Summary: This isn't necessarily a review for the tv as a whole. I do really like the tv and I think it's a great deal. However, I bought this as a gaming tv for my PS3. I was annoyed when I tried to set up the HDMI cable and realized while the 1080p graphics are gorgeous, the sound would make this weird...
Summary: The picture is very good only if you view it straight on and at eye level...The viewing angle is very poor compared to some others, so I cant see using this set any where else but a bedroom, even in a kitchen would not be good because you walk around in there..
Summary: TV picture quality is great! Size and weight is perfect for the kitchen location. Sound quality is poor with small speaker to the rear. The remote control response time has a delayed reaction.
Summary: My real need was to replace a non-working flat-screen PC monitor belonging to an 85-year old friend/PC-support-client living in a retirement community. She appreciated the slighty larger PC monitor, and she loved having a new TV on her credenza.

Summary: I bought this TV in the hopes of using it for my video business. I hook it up to my professional video cameras out in the field using both the HDMI and Component video inputs depending on the camera I am using, to judge composition and lighting.
Pros: short and simple....My application is a Master Bedroom Excellent picture quality. I found for bedroom use, Cinema Mode works best, especially for night time viewing. Good port selections for a small TV (HDMI etc...) Fairly quick startup..(other sites have said it takes almost 1 minute for start, ...
Cons: only con and preventing 5 Eggs, USB support is limited to music and Photos. I knew purchasing it didn't support Movie via USB, but still a negative considering other models in class AND lower have a Movie mode for USB playback.
