Pros:Lots of internet applications (widgets), nice size and picture in HD

Cons:Slow turn on and channel changes, might not work correctly with some wireless setups

The Bottom Line: Want to check facebook / twitter or view additional internet video content like Hulu, Netflix, blockbuster, listen to pandora, etc on tv, this is an excellent value.


I remember when I first saw this tv, I knew immediately it would be perfect for my breakfast room / kitchen. Not too small not too large, plus a bunch of internet widgets that would lower my need to turn on the laptop when in the kitchen cooking or or dining in the breakfast room. But the price, yikes back then it was $799!! Some places had it for $949!

For months I patiently watched as the price lowered to 699, 599, 549.... when it reached 499 plus free shipping I was sold! What a deal!

After waiting so long I thought I would be disappointed. Not at all! It now have even more internet apps (widgets) than it did when I first saw it. Facebook, twitter, HULU, Netflix, Fandango... too many to name! They all work wonderfully. Last night I decided to go out to a movie while I was eating dinner. How awesome it was to just push one button and see what was showing at my local theater! How nice to have a tv with a brain (or at least access to brainy stuff, LOL).

The picture quality is good, better on HD stations than standard which look too soft for me. The HD pictures aren't as good as top of line Samsung but better than my Sharp Aquos.

No problem with the sound as my room area is the perfect size for this set. I think it would be fine in most normal sized rooms.

The only draw back is it didn't work with my Linksys Cisco wireless N router.. I don't know why, it said my wireless connection was too slow... I don't think they come faster than N and I'm on the highest tier that Cox Cable offers.. perhaps it was the distance?  I don't know,  but I didn't fiddle with it much either as I have wired connection right there anyway, so I just plugged it into the ethernet jack in the wall and it worked fine. I know wireless is all the rage, but sometimes it pays to have your house retrofitted with a few ethernet jacks in key locations, this time it paid off for me. 

Another drawback is channel changes and powering on is slow. You really have to get used to putting in the channel number or using the up down key and waiting 10 seconds (yes really) for the channel to actually change.

A different feature that I've never seen before is lip sync. If you get a show where the actor's lips are out of sync with the sound you can push this key until they sync up. I had this to happen on FOX recently and it worked in syncing the two... sweet.

Also PIP / POP only works between the HDMI and other ports, so no watching two channels at once by splitting your cable signal unless you have a dvd recorder or VHS connected to cable and one of the component / composite or HDMI port.  I haven't used that feature yet.

For those that like to fine tune picture and audio settings, there are quite a few you can fiddle with but there are also some nice presets for people like me.

I have a Microsoft Zune and no problem connecting the docking station to this set, the movies from it were gorgeous on the set! However its not recognized in the auto remote setup so I have to use my zune remote control with it, but that is fine. Speaking of the remote control, AWESOME!. Its blue tooth and has a slide out keyboard which is nice when you're on twitter and such.

If you're looking for an entry point into the smart tv arena just to wet your toes a bit so to speak, this set at the $500 or lower price is an excellent way to go!
