Summary: I haven't had this TV for more than 24 hours. I am typing this review on it now and can barely see the text it is so blurry. I don't have a complete grip on all of the set's functions, but I have adjusted the picture to reduce the blurring as much as I could. The funny thing is, when I play a high resolution movie file from the pc or when I plug in my Xbox 360, the picture is AWESOME, but for web-surfing, emailing, facebooking and such, the resolution is TERRIBLE.
Summary: I didn't know the differences between 720p and 1080p HDTV so I bought this one. I bought it in August 2010 and it's now February 2013 and it's still working. The bad experiences with this tv is mainly the remote for volume up or down, you have to press the buttons really hard to make it work so I just end up buying a universal remote but it didn't work with the coding for this brand so I use it with the cable box just to mute the tv since the volume doesn't work on the...
Summary: I bought this TV two years ago at less than $350 here on Amazon. It's beautiful -- slim, great picture, I can't say anything about sound as the volume I use is always low (being in an apartment building, I don't want to cause noise problems for my next door/upstairs neighbors). And reading the reviews here, I'm fortunate that mine is still working.
Summary: Yes, the sound is terrible. I'd be surprised if you could find any television at this price point, especially a slim form factor LED-backlit one, that has anything close to decent. If you care about sound quality, I don't think you'll be sticking with any television's stock speakers, anyway. There are always concessions to be made in buying an LED TV this size for this price, this one simply didn't match up with my own needs.
I would recommend this set to a friend with certain reservations.

Summary: PRO 1) Good price for a 32 in LED 2) Very light and easy to hook up 3) Pretty good picture straight on and eye level 4) Pretty good picture with non HD sources. Have yet to try it with our HD source 5) Good on screen controls 6) Nice cosmetics CON 1) Bad sound. Reminds me of an old AM radio. I had to dig out our old Sony SAVA system and run audio out to audio in and bypass this audio mess.
Summary: I use westinghouse monitors and have had great success from them. I saw this TV at a bestbuy on closeout. The price (def. less than target and amazon) was just for that particular store and I jumped on the purchase after a quick smart phone review search. Setup and design is top notch for the price point. However, channel changing load up is slow to say the least and volume output is very suspect.
Summary: Got this TV for a kid room. I was hesitant due to the reviews on the sound and other issues but there were posts saying that you could resolve those issues with the firmware up date. 1 hour on hold with customer service to try to find out how fix the horrid sound to be told to just go to the web site. Followed the directions on the website and the firmware will not update. Ended up having to get a sound bar.
Summary: I picked up this TV on sale and with an Amazon gift card for a final price of about $150; an unbeatable and appropriate amount. PROS: Super slim and lightweight. Amazingly so. You almost can't see it from the side. Picture is bright and clear and smooth but see my "Cons". Startup time is decent. Locks onto signal quickly (I'm only using a single HDMI input). Responds briskly to remote.
