"Stunning Picture and good features"4.5 starson by TimBeilfuss
Pros: 3D ready. Stunningly crisp picture. Easy setup. DNLA capable which is great! Viera Connect SmartTv inside (Facebook,Youtube, Pandora, HuluPlus, Picasa, Netflix, etc.). Netflix & HuluPlus stream in HD fast and clear. Comes with USB WiFi Dongle. HDMI(3
Cons: Remote only allows for old cellphone style "multi-tap" input. Viera Connect does NOT have a web browser, only app usage. (No browser as of 10/3/11) TV Speakers are adequate at best. I purchased a soundbar w/sub to get the best experience. No analog audio
Summary: I bought this TV simply because I came across it open-box at the TigetDirect store and it was right in my price range I was looking at ($600-$800 and 50"+). The fact that it is a 3D 1080p SmartTV as well as 600htz refresh rate just adds to the value. After I got home and hooked it up, I was blown away by the deal I got.
I sit approximately 14' away from the TV and the 55" feels much closer due to the crispness and size.
I will and have recommended this model of TV to friends and family.
