Summary: After owning this TV for 2 years, I can say that it's a solid TV. The picture quality is great and the rare times we actually use the 3d, it's very fun. The lack of the 5th star is because the "apps" on this TV are not very good. Apps load very slowly and don't provide a smooth interface as you would expect on a TV versus an Xbox or cable box interface.
Summary: Purchased 8/2011, Reviewed 3/2013 solid 4.0 average score. Great picture. I push 720p to 1080p out to this and it works wonderfully. The viewing angle is great, we have the TV at a slight angle and can view the screen very well off to the side around 50 degrees from one chair. I definitely give it a 5 of 5. I would rate the audio average for a tv based audio. We used the tv audio for awhile after moving before we got the surround wired.
Summary: We have been using this TV for a few months now and it works good. We had really wanted to get a LED but at the time we couldn't beat the price on this TV of $800. We haven't had any problems with the TV. The picture isn't the greatest but it isn't the worst either. The sound is horrible but we bought a Vizio sound bar which improved the sound a lot.
Summary: All-in-all, this TV is pretty good. The only issues I have with it are that the settings menu looks out-dated and isn't very intuitive. It would also be nice if it had a feature to be able to configure the audio as it is a little off, as I experienced with my previous Vizio TV, but there is a setting on that TV to tweak the timing of the audio.
Summary: I bought this TV because my plasma TV quit working... It was the black screen of death problem. I had read many complaints about plasmas doing this, so I decided to try something different, which is why I bought this TV. I didn't want to spend too much money, and this TV was priced in my range. I had some problems when I first hooked the TV up to the Dish Network.
Summary: Really nice tv for the money. Great picture, very bright for a LCD. TV was easy to set up and use. You have to use HDMI cables for your componants and a HD input to get the most out of the picture quality. Sound is OK, pretty comparable to other flat screens. Depending upon the accoustics in your room you may want to consider a sound bar.
Summary: So far, so good on this television! It has a great picture, and it hasn't any lags in motion so the 120hz refresh rate is sufficient for regular TV action and football/sports. I'm not a gamer either, so Ihave no opinion on that. The price was great, most other brand-name 55" LCD HDTV, 1080p w/120hz refresh are $200 to $500 more. Compared to people I know with other large flat screen TVs, this is a ringer on price and quality.
Summary: Saw this tv in an ad for 749.99 1-01-12 did some research and decided to purchase, I have found you will drive yourself crazy with professional reviewers since most everything is based on intricate measuring instruments now if they flat out say its junk I believe them. anyways after setting up the set I started to wonder if I made the right chose,since instructions are weak...
Summary: About a 2 weeks before Thanksgiving, i went and checked out the website from a popular electronic store, i won't name them but they rhyme with "Schmest Smy" and they had this T.V. listed for $800 with the regular price at $1,2000 I wanted a plasma but after seeing this ones size, specs and price and figured with no interest for 18 monhts...ill go get it.
