Quite an amazing tv. People talk alot of trash about geometry issues.. I see absoloutly nothing of this. I just hooked the surround sound up to it, and the x360... Both play beyond well.. I'm very excited

None that I've see quite yet

This tv is garbage.


The tv has massive geometry issues. And its not because the one I have is defective. The tv is poorly made and shouldn't be bought. Go with sony's 30" widescreen hdtv and you wont be sorry.

Do not waste your money.


I have owned this TV for less than 2 years, and it has completely stopped working. TWICE. The first time it died, we had to pay over $400 to have it repaired. That was about 6 months ago. The TV has once again stopped operating. The unit has never ...

Attractive design, small "footprint."

Defective. Expensive to repair. Poor customer service.
