Ok for the price


The picture is good for an LCD but the sound is very low. I had the volume all the way up and could not hear the tv from about 10'. I returned it and got a Vizio, much better sound, $100 more but well worth it.

good price, overall good tv if you have a stero to plug into., big screen

low quality sound

GREAT buy and BEST price!


I've got this TV since August (3 months already) and it's been working great! It took 10-15 minutes to setup out of the box: easy auto channel search, easy connection with the wireless router, and easy to set up with my Blue Ray player.

best buy for the price paid, easy set up, wireless and internet ready

no audio out, net tv functions a bit slow

Does not work with Att Uverse


I just recently purchased this TV and although the picture quality is great it will not work with At&t Uverse. You can not connect the TV using a HDMI cable. I did a google search and found that many people have had this problem.

Good Purchase


Purchased this TV for a second bedroom because it has Wifi. Now all our TV's stream Netflix! It is wall-mounted and is not as "smart" as some other TV's we have purchased from Costco in the past, but for the price it is worth the aggravation.

great picture and sound

initial set-up was difficult

Great Value - Great TV


I was a bit sceptical about this TV at this price. I have never been let down by Costco so I took a punt and so glad I did. This is a great TV, full of powerful features. It is a perfect size for any room, has a crystal clear picture and I just love it.

great picture, great sound, easy to set up wireless access

Sensational Value


Spectacular entertainment device! We have had the 55" version of this TV for several months now and it has exceeded all our expectations. We have it hooked to Dish Network and an attic antenna. It is also hooked wirelessly to our Clear/TP-Link home...

easy to hook to the internet, great picture, easy to understand setup menu

would like an audio out connection

Compatibility problem with AT&T Uverse


We also had a problem connecting this tv with Uverse. Although we were finally able to get it connected, we cannot get HD. I think his would be a great TV if you do not have Uverse. We will be returning this tv to Costco.

direct connection with netflix

cannot get hd with uverse
