Summary: its a great HDTV. the pic quality its great, i replace my old tube tv with this one, the speakers are kind of bad quality but i boost the base and it sounds great, the control is very cheap so make sure you replace it with a nice harmony 880 (that's what i did and its perfect, i will get a nice surround sound systems to get the speakers out of my way, but the speakers are not a deal breaker.
Summary: We purchased this last year for the family for Christmas - our first flatscreen television! It is wonderful. The picture quality is excellent. We had extended family over for Christmas and my brother, an engineer who spent about eight months researching before he bought his last flat screen television, said the picture quality was better than his. We are very happy with it.
Summary: If you always (and I mean for everything) run external speakers, the sound won't be an issue. But if you're like me and want to use external surround sound just for watching movies or your favorite action TV series, but feel it's overkill for every day viewing, this may not be the TV- it reminds me of the old tin a.m. radio on my dad's workbench in the garage.
Summary: I was affraid about this shop, because it was my firts hdtv, I get it about time, and the picture quality is amazing, good sound system, and looks great mounting in my bedroom wall. If you want quality plus good price you should buy this tv.
Summary: I've had this television for about two months and it is everything that I expected and more. The only reason I didn't give it a five star is because of the sound from the speakers. It is fine for a bedroom (which is where we use it) but not if you want to use it someplace different. Great picture and great quality. I would recommend it to anyone for the price.
