Pros Sharp 1080p picture, Skype
Cons Brightness jumps on scenes with dark areas, banding
Summary I really wish this set were closer to perfect. For the amount of money, it isn't worth it. The black areas of a picture change brightness back and forth and any menu shows lots of banding.
Pros Ultra thin screen, beautiful even when it's off... Super, super black levels... bright picture even in sunlit room... Remote does everything !!!
Cons Expensive... Heavy, as a precaution I used three of us to hang it... Internet apps are slow
Summary I won't say what retailer I got this from, but they are in Maine (hint,hint) and it was an easy, hassel free transaction... I have only had this for one week, (replacing a 52" Samsung LCD that devolped red dots...). Wow, what a fantastic difference !!! Last weekend we watched football, US Open tennis, Nascar, and PGA golf... in live sports this television has no peers... Period !!! 3D was not a consideration so I can't make a positive or negative review of 3D performance, but so far this is the best television that you can buy at this price point... No regrets... I will update in a couple of months... but if you're sitting on the fence ( I took almost a year...) GO AHEAD AND PULL THE TRIGGER !!! You will not regret anything except for waiting... lol
Pros Display is visually stunning from the bezel to the thin profile. Picture quality out of the box is outstanding. Amazing viewing experience.
Cons Some issues w/ the Yahoo widgets and some clunkiness in the Smarthub interface. Youtube searches can't be entered through the QWERTY keypad in the app.
Summary Overall this TV is awesome. I waited 3 years for a TV of this quality. The only drawbacks are almost a wash as no TV has a PC quality interface on it. Picture quality and black levels are among the best out there. Just watching this TV next to other LCD,LED, and Plasmas puts the others to shame!
Pros inky blacks great dark colors. internet options are awsome. qwerty keyboard on back of the remote is a great feature. easy setup. if u have the money to spend around 3800 retail, but you can get it cheaper i paid 3000. 3d is crisp and clear. styling is go
Cons none yet !!
Summary i love this tv. crisp clear deep colors. this tv is a pleasure to watch though a litle pricy.i went to bb and took in a price from a place caled east coast tv. they had it for 2795 plus 40 shiping!!! after some bargining back and forth bb agreed to price match!!! bb price was 3419 originaly agreed to sell it for 3119 then brought in the add wow. if you have the money in your budget to buy this tv even at 3000 or a litle more it is worth it!! blu ray is amazing
Pros Super Easy set up. Also the remote is first rate
Cons The base is very flimsy and the set should be mounted on wall.
Summary Best deep black and real life colors and awesome 3D, as well as pretty good sound.
