4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Makes a great computer monitor. I only had DVI output on my video card but a $12 adapter cord took care of that. You can set 5 video profiles for different purposes. I could not believe how bright and crisp the picture is compared to my old DLP monitor.

Cons: One HDMI input went dead on me. There are 4 and I only needed 2 so I decided it was not worth the hassle of shipping it back to the manufacturer. I have had it almost a year and have had no other problems with it. The default settings adjust the brightness to ambient light and this was very annoying until I figured out how to disable it.

Other Thoughts: Would have given it 5 eggs if the #1 HDMI input had not gone out on me.

5 out of 5 eggsNice...Very Nice

Pros: Picture is excellent. Better than my Samsung 40" LED 7000 model.
Shocked at Newegg's price! What a wonderful deal.
Sound and features are again better than my Samsung.
This one didnt die after a couple of weeks like my Samsung which cost 4 times what I paid for this jewel.

Cons: Not one and I am hard to please.

Other Thoughts: Netflix and Pandora work without fail.
Was this a price mistake???
I love Newegg!!!

4 out of 5 eggsNice Tv

Pros: Nice looking TV.
Has a nice screen and decent clarity. I utilize this mainly as a screen for my Home Server & Security system display.
The XBOX 360 graphics looks good on this using an HDMI cable.
The light adjustment feature was a little odd at first but easily worked through.
The Network streaming video capability is trivial to me but may be of some interest to folks that have an interest in streaming TV.
The Tv has a nice amount of HDMI connectors.

Cons: The remote has a long delay compared to other Tv's I own but this is a minor drawback.

Other Thoughts: I use the VGA connector on this TV but I wish it had a DVI connector instead.
The sound is average but I like it. Thin tv's are not designed for high quality sound and expecting to get a tv with Theater Quality sound at this price you are crazy.
I got this TV on sale which made the deal great. I normally will not buy a TV unless its close to $10 per inch.
I would recommend this TV to anyone.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent tv, average features

Pros: The picture is crystal clear. The blacks are dark and the colors are vibrant. Managed to pick this one up on sale a long time ago and have never regretted it. There's a berth of inputs, including 4 HDMI and 2 USB, 1 SD, 1 set of composite, 1 set of component and an Ethernet port.

Natively, the TV only reads MKV, mp4 and a few other modern era formats. That means no avi, for those curious. Have to use a converter program. Reading 1080 HD movie files off of a USB almost never works, the bitrate is too high for USB. However, 720 works just fine.

Pandora works as expected. Netflix works well. I haven't really tried the other features yet.

Cons: The problem with these features isn't the TV's fault. It's the remote, for the most part. When you're doing anything that's not watching TV, there's a great deal of input lag, especially with Netflix. Sometimes up to 1-2 seconds.

The other con is that the audio is pretty disappointing. There's honestly 0 point in jacking up the volume past 50 (out of 100), because there's no discernable difference for the vast majority of channels.

Other Thoughts: Great TV, but not 700 dollars great. Wait for it to come on sale like I did and save 250 bucks.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat LED TV

Pros: Super nice picture. Decent promotion price. Saves energy. When the TV is on. The panel don't get hot at all.

Cons: Don't look very stylish. Netfilx app is slow to loading title between catalogues. A bit lag on meun & app interface respond.

Other Thoughts: The Picture is gorgeous. Probably compare to some more expensive TV. A great buy!

4 out of 5 eggsNo major complaints - great upgrade from our tube TV

Pros: Got a really good deal on the TV the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. It is a brand name, feature rich TV. Lots of HDMI inputs. Netflix app works as well as any other Netflix app I have used on any other device. The sound is average for what comes built into TVs these days.

Cons: The screen was pretty dim out of the box. If you set it to Cinema or Video Game mode, this improves the picture significantly. However, the TV should have been configured this way out of the box.

Other Thoughts: This is our first high definition TV - we waited out the whole HD frenzy until the prices came down and there was enough content for us to care. So, compared to our 32" tube TV, this TV is way awesome. For all of you that paid the price of a used car for a low quality 42" LCD in the early 2000s, ha ha - suckers!

5 out of 5 eggsNice TV

Pros: Gorgeous TV. Not sure why so many are hating on it. Got in on sale for $549, tacked on the 4 year insurance plan. So about $600 and piece of mind. You can see the TV at every angle, sips energy with LED, and has decent sound. We liked it because the speakers were okay. We had bought previously and Insignia and it just had tweeters, this has some depth, not AMAZING but good. We also wanted a big TV and LED to save energy.

Hard to beat for the money. We splurged and got the panasonic wireless dongle (sort of bummed it did not come with it) don't buy it at best buy, they want like 80 bucks for it, I got it on ama-zon for less than 40. It works great, we love playing pandora on our TV. Don't have netflix so I cannot comment on its performance.

So for so good with this TV.

Cheers.

Cons: does not come with the wifi dongle...but not a deal breaker really nice TV

Other Thoughts: Get one if it goes on sale....

Pros: Very happy with this TV. Looks great at any angle. Fantastic upgrade for my old projection TV. Very low power usage.
