Out of stock

 

I'm extremely disappointed. I have tons of personal business and friends and family builds going through newegg, and they really let me down on this TV.

I wouldn't know, I never got mine

Newegg advertised a great price. I bought it. My purchase was successful. Then it was determined that they were out of stock. How can they not have accurate stock numbers

Menu system is a little funky, takes a little getting used to. That's all!!!!
