I cannot believe what an amazing deal this was and what a great TV. I upgraded from a 32 inch LCD and this thing is absolutely HUGE.
I thought the picture on my old tv was great but this one just blows it away. I highly recommend this TV for sure. I bought this TV used and the description said it had a few marks that could not be seen from distance (i figured i could live with that) infact the TV looked immaculate and definitely could pass for Brand-New. I was shocked and absolutely delighted with how good it looked!
Couple of things to note about the TV which are minor annoyances but certainly not deal breakers (esp. for the price).
1. There is an ambient light sensor on the TV and it is just terrible and messes with your remote and the TV operation itself. I had the TV for about a month before doing some "googling" to understand why my TV would just turn itself off when switching channels and why my remote would have to be pushed about 20 times before a channel would change. Turns out the ambient light sensor messes with the IR and as soon as I turned it off - hey Presto!! no more random turning off, remote works perfectly again and i'm a happy camper.
2. the other minor annoyance is that when viewing on HDMI and plugging into a seperate Audio receiver rather that just listening to the TV speakers, the lip syncing is off. It's only slightly off (.5 seconds) but just enough to be a real pain. So i just listen with the TV speakers instead of my sound system and that is still pretty good. The sound on this TV is really good for a TV.
So overall this TV gets an A+ rating for:
1. Picture Quality is just spectacular
2. TV sound through TV speakers
3. Price is amazing
4. Gorgeous design
5. 4 HDMI inputs
6. Easy menu controls, etc
You will not go wrong with this TV - i'm glad i made the jump to 47 inches!!
