Great Value

 

I am using this in our lake cottage. Great TV for the price point..

Great product for the price. Easy set-up right out of the box.I use an Antenna and this TV ran through the the channel scan and was ready to go right away. The picture is crisp ..good black levels

Audio was tinny sounding. Switched audio to music mode and increased the bass and it made sound better ; Motion is a little blury but I am used to 600hz plasma tvs
