Great TV...Perfect Picture


I would highly recommend this TV to anyone that can get it. Cost a bit more for the 240mhz refresh rate... but if you have never seen a TV with that refresh rate, you have missed out.

All the inputs, 240 refresh rate, 2million:1 colors

Good picture but poor for sports


After adjusting the settings to my liking, I was happy with the picture (comparable to my Panasonic plasma). When I started watching sports, the motion blur on a fast moving baseball, football, or hockey puck made this an unacceptable purchase.

Good, but remote a little flimsy...


Nice TV, but the remote not well made. First TV we received was broken, so Costco had to send out another and have broken one picked up... kind of a hassle.

poor Wi-Fi


I needed a TV with built in Wi-Fi and unfortunately this TV has very poor Wi-Fi capabilities. Even though the signal strength is very strong, the Wi-Fi connection continuously drops.

great picture, ample advanced setting options, smart tv options are easy to setup and intuitive, alt connections easy to access if wall mounted

low base volume, remote is awkward and # buttons are small, remote will not control 2nd device (dvd dvr), no favorite channel options
