First Time LCD Owner


Newegg makes shopping easier than making toast. No shipping costs, rebates, and preferred customer service makes it a no brainer when choosing a supplier.

I am a first time buyer of an HDTV but I've had my eyes open, reading reveiws, looking at floor models for a few years. I took a chance with this new model but the specs, styling, and reviews were too good to pass up. Set up of this TV was a breeze,...

No cables came with the TV which, to me, seems like you should at least get an HDMI/component cable. Small light on front of TV is semi-annoying but the simplicity on the rest of the design makes up for it
