Expert review by : scott/huddleston (



I got a great deal on this tv because the Samsung tv i had bought prior to this one the circiut board went out 2 days after purchase.I was going to get a refund and they threw a 1300 dollar tv at me for the 850 I paid for the Samjunk.If the bars on...

This tv has the coolest picture in a picture i've ever seen ; Great sound (for tv speakers of course.) ; The best looking picture you can get on an HD source.(without going plasma)

Slight pixlezation when scenes move ; Fuzzieness with anolog source ; 16+9 verticle squeeze overated

Excellent picture detail and sounds like a home theater without the extra speakers


My 16 year old 27" TV (not Sony) needed replaced. I compared TV sets for 3 months then I found this TV (32HS510) on display. It had the best picture and sound of any other TV. I determined (this time) I was going to purchase a real TV. Words cannot ...

Excellent picture, sound, PIP, Indexing, beautiful cabinet, simple to use, heavy-duty.

HS510 is not what you need if you move often
