Consumer review by: zerkleje (

Pretty good in many aspects. Picture: Great! Sound: Nothing Special


I bought this TV over the Thanksgiving holiday from Best Buy (paid $799 w/ free shipping a $400 savings). I was a great deal... must have been a closeout special, though, because they no longer carry it. Overall, it's a good TV, but this ...

Great picture, refresh rate, viewing angle, PC Input (VGA) is nice feature to have.

Sound is so-so.  No analog Audio outputs. Most connections in back.
