For our family's first HD TV, I did a lot of http://www.amazon.com/gp/cdp/member-reviews/A3M7CK5Y5K7RY7/ref=cm_cr_pr_auth_rev?ie=UTF8&sort_by=MostRecentReview research to find the best package of features for the best price. Originally I was not going to go with 3D, but it turned out not to add a lot extra to the price, so I went with it. Although there are not a lot of 3D TV channels or true 3D movies, I anticipate that this will change over time, making the 3D feature more valuable. To our surprise, the quality of the 3D picture is as good as you get in a movie theater. The viewing angle is very good for a LCD TV and the glare (when the sun shines onto the TV in the morning) is much less than on our previous Sony Trinitron's screen. The HD picture quality is excellent. The built-in wireless internet connectivity works well to streamline connecting to Netflix more easily than the old set-up we had using the WII. And we can connect to the internet easily for almost anything we want. Not sure if we can stream video which requires use of Flashplayer; haven't been able to figure out yet how to do this or if this is possible. But with a HDMI cable we can connect a laptop to the TV and get those videos without a lot of trouble. There are lots of features we are just starting to explore. This is definitely a major step forward in TV technology for us and so far we are very pleased with it. And with a price $700 below list price and with free shipping, we feel we got a good value. If this TV lasts us as long as the 10+ years that we had the old one, we will have had an excellent bargain.
