Pros: This is a great TV! 1080p 42" with 4 hdmi all for a awesome newegg price! It has a wonderful picture, great view angles, very clear, crisp and great colours. It took a little bit to tweaking to get them just right. The slim polished bezel really adds to the looks of the TV which is what I was hoping for when i did buy a new TV (matches the entertainment centre). My PS3 games look amazing and so do blu-ray's. Lots of features and great quality packed in to this TV. It is definitely a 5egg product you will not be disappointed. Newegg rocks purchased processed and shipped same day and arrived 5 days early.
Cons: The remote control layout isn't very good and the settings menu for the TV isn't the best but its not enough to make me send it back or give it no less than 5 eggs. The digital optical out on the TV only outputs in stereo unless its from a HD cable/sat provider then I was able to get 5.1, I was a little confused about that considering it has dolby digital on the box (i could just have not figured it out yet, stranger things have happened) but if your crazy about sound your going to be routing it through your receiver anyway.
Pros: Unbelievable price to performance. Played WoW, CoD4, Bioshock to name a few on high setting and get great frame rates. Has wireless N, gigabit Ethernet port, and esata. I mostly use it to play games and do a little quickbooks on, it hasnt let me down yet. Fantastic product even thou there are a few downsides they didn't affect me enough to give me less than 5 eggs.
Cons: NO physical OS disks. One of my pet peeves being in the repair biz is customers buy machines and the company doesn't provide a OS disk. Speakers are terrible, they do not get loud and are very empty in sound range.
Overall Review: I love the fact that it has a full keyboad however the key sizes and placement of some keys take some getting used to. The system come with very little bloatware which is impressive, just remove norton and your good to go. Make sure you make the recovery dvd's ( they provide you with 2 dvd-r to do the job). The screen has limited view angles so showing off how you just pwned that mob is a little tough :). All in all fantastic system. Great Buy
