Summary: Bought in October of 2009, and just at the end of 2014 the LCD panel started to go out. The backlight is visibly dimming from the top. The upper part of the screen is darker than the bottom, but is still functional. Seriously? Only a little under 5 years and this TV is starting to die?
Summary: Great value. Issues with sound card, which infrequently becomes garbled....fix is to turn TV off and then on. Speaker location not the greatest. Love the easy hook up to computer to view photos on the BIG screen
Summary: DON'T BUY THIS. IT SHOULD BE RECALLED. I owned a Toshiba CRT television that lasted me for many years with zero problems. I decided to upgrade to LCD, so I thought I would be getting the same long-lasting quality with this model. WRONG. There is a major issue with the LCD panel.
Summary: PRO: Bought this in Feb 2010 on Amazon for $840 total, TV is alive and performing. The 1/2 mute button is quite useful during the commercials (where advertisers increase the volume), phone calls, and impromptu conversations. CON: There is a delay in starting up the TV and a pause to change channels.
Summary: Very disappointed. The technician just left. $300 for a new audio processor plus $199 labor plus tax. The sound becomes garbled and you have to turn off the TV and turn it back on for the sound to clear up. The tech says he sees it all the time.
Summary: Bought this TV 2.5 years ago. Right away had problems with the DirecTV remote. Had to move the DirecTV box away from TV and use a long HDMI cable. The sound gets buzzy and muffled after several hours of use. This can be corrected by turning the TV off and back on again. Not a big deal, just a pain.
Summary: I bought this TV in June 2010 and haven't had a single issue with it. At the time, I got it for $700 plus tax, which was, and still is, a great value for a 46-inch, 1080p LCD. More than a year later, I'm still very pleased.
Summary: I absolutely love this TV, in spite of the completely poor sound it gives. My husband and I purchased this knowing that we'd have a surround sound system so I can't say I've heard the actual sound the TV gives in a long time.
