Summary: This was a refurbished unit. Happy with TV, but surprised it was not damaged in shipping. VERY pourly packaged. Also, unit did not come a owners manual or guide. Have purchased many refurbished items from other companies over the years and have always received a product that looked like it was new. Although overall happy with the purchase, experience could have been much better.
Summary: i absolutely love this tv...at first i was just a little sketical because its not a LED tv its backlight is CCFL...but i have a 47 inch vizio that is LED in our living room and this tv has just as good a picture as a LED one and cost $200 less than my LED one...
Manufacture from China has a long way to go to embrace Demming standards -

Summary: Opening up these sets tells you what little quality of manufacture you are getting for a considerable cost: little pieces of tape used instead of proper small/inexpensive brackets; metallic tape used to ground sensitive circuit boards; components that just make minimum requirement - as long as they make it through the warranty period. Demming would have had nightmares about the quality dedicated to manufacturing many of these sets e.g., Vizio, Quantum View, Element.
