Frustrating experience


I have had good luck in the past with refurbished products, but after this experience I will stick to new TV's.

Nice TV at a good price

First one arrived damaged in shipping and back cover was scratched up quite a bit ; The second one arrived fine, was in good physical condition and worked for about a week then developed a major problem - blurry screen and green tint on the whole...

Black Screen


Looks like a good tv, if it wasn't defective when it came it.

None yet

Came in, was happy to finally have my new tv, plugged everything in and showed a black screen

Consumer review (

Stunning picture


Produces a little bit of heat since it isn't LED backlit. but not bad.

Sports, movies, everything looks good on this TV. Its black levels aren't on par with plasma, but are extremely good. 40" is a very good size to get sharp, blur-free sports action, and this TV shines. Backlighting control and fine-tuning capabilities...

None. If it cost $200 more, I might whine a bit about true contrast ratio, but I have to look really hard to notice any shortcoming
