"Solid all-around feature set in this size range"5.0 starson by Razzl
Pros: Simple, logical remote; easy, informative screen menus; lots of picture adjustment options; built-in hd tuners; excellent color and black level
Cons: remote not backlit; default sound and contrast settings need adjustment out of the box; obsolete usb stick needed for firmware upgrade
Summary: This tv is excellent on the fundamentals: simple menus and controls, menus which are attractive and informative (they tell you the resolution you are watching at, helpful when making connections to other equipment); enough of the right connections (except S-video, which no set with HDMI will have because the studios don't want you making hd vhs copies of their movies); lots of adjustment settings for picture quality. This set lets the av receiver do the job of connecting to the web and movie download services. The black levels are outstanding but you'll probably want to dial the "dynamic contrast" down to low or none and "contrast" up to 100% in order to be able to see enough shadow detail. Set "Qsound" instead of default stereo for best sound from the built-in speakers. Built-in HD tuners work well with an antenna or as a cable box substitute to capture some of those HD channels from your basic cable. Firmware upgrade required an obsolete FAT16 516MB usb stick with no U3 software to accompish.
