This TV looks good and sounds bad but I still love it. I have solved my sound problem with a surround sound system and internal mute set to on via the TV menu. I got my set about 6 days ago. The set up was simple take it out of the box connect the satellite box to the, TV plug it in and I was all set. The picture from the satellite looked good but not great. The TV does a good job making a non HD picture look good but it is no where near as nice as the video I saw in the store. I then connected a $20 indoor HD antenna to the TV and I was able to pickup 9 digital channels. The HD looked awesome. I was simply amazed at how well this TV showed 1080i. I know it looked good in the store but it looked even better in my living room.

The TV is very bright it will light up a room if you want it to. The colors are very vibrant and the contrast is good. The manufacturer claims 6000-1 but you will find yourself never turning contrast all the way up I have mine set to 80. Playstation 2 looks pretty bad on the screen but Playstation 3 looks amazing. I guess the long and short of it is the fact that if you are watching digital or HD programming this TV will please you. Anything else you may be slightly disappointed. Dont expect to get decent sound from this TV the speakers are just not up to it. Other than that I love this thing.
