Summary: So here's the deal, I bought this TV a couple of a years ago and its still running like a champ. Beautiful, sharp picture and high refresh rate make it pleasurable to watch it for extended periods of time. The 3D is fabulous and clear. I have enjoyed many a games and movies on this TV in 3D for hours on the end without eye strain. The deal breaker for me if I switch to other brands is the fact that the TOSLINK output on them seem to resample all signals to 48 khz fixed.
Summary: i bought this for my bedroom and have had it for a couple of months now. it beats the old rca dino bubble tube i use to have. didnt have much trouble when that tv was left on. but when this tv is left on because the screen is so large its almost like leaving a light on. now i set the sleep timer which helps out. netflix: does not work well. does not let you browse.....you better find your movie quickly or it disconnects.
Wasn't looking for speakers...I wanted the best video for $$$

Summary: When I bought this a couple of months ago, I was hesitant. But @ $650...it was worth a shot. Yes the starting up cold takes some time, but what you get is so much more...I wasn't looking for 3-D, it was a bonus. It is a hit with children. Clear picture and the 240Hz picture is top notch...Only wish I could have purchased the bigger set, but I am still definitely happy with my TV.
Summary: I got this TV as a Christmas present to myself, I have been very pleased with it. The 3d uses polarized glasses, so they are not too bulky. The regular non-3d tv has a very good image. Set up was a breeze. I have only one complaint. Amazon should re-package it, as shipping takes a toll on its OEM box.
Summary: Have been using a 15 year old 36" analog TV monster (from Toshiba) forever and, being totally happy with Toshiba for many years on various products, found this unit with so many bells and whistles, and at a such a great price, that I couldn't resist. Just received it a few weeks ago after a 3 month wait/backorder and, yes, the outside of the box was quite banged up, but enough packing materials inside to keep it in pristine condition.
Summary: I was upgrading my bedroom tv moving from the sharp aquos lc42d64u. Here is what I liked about this TV: 1. The 3d picture is GREAT as well as the 2d-3d converted pictures. You feed like you are right there. 2. The 2d picture is good however not as great as my sharp which is 4 years old. 3. I don't care about all the net features as I use my other devices to achieve those functions. IMO, the TV should just be a TV.
Summary: So we've had this TV for about 2 weeks now. Wanted to give it some time to make sure everything was figured out and working before writing any kind of review. Pros: good picture, sound is fine (unless you really crank it loud). Very thin unit - love the depth (1.3 inches) - great for wall mounting, which we did. Love the passive 3d.
