"our first flat panel"5.0 starson by the_iceman
Pros: 50" size is perfect, lower price than comparable sized LCD TVs. Samsung quality. Nice picture quality. Four v1.3 HDMIs, usb input
Cons: the screen is tinted pink/rose.
remote isn't universal and is relatively long & big. Still eats a bit more power than other TVs its size. The top rear corners kick off some heat. No SD card input. Lacks 2 tuner PIP.
Summary: I don't mind that they chose to give the frame a "touch of color" with the red tint, but I wish they didnt need to tint the screen itself. This doesnt really effect the colors when watching TV but you can definitely notice it during the day in the reflections. Daytime viewing can be difficult if you don't darken the room. I got a great deal on this set, sub 1K tag w/ free delivery so I cant complain too much. I expect the TV to last me 10-15 years until I decide to jump into a more affordable LED backlit LCD or possibly OLED.
