"Outstanding"4.5 starson by reldirk
Pros: Great Picture
Cons: can't really think of any
Summary: Ok. We've been talking about buying a flat screen for the last couple of years. Have been using a very capable RCA 36" CRT HDTV but we wanted to conserve some space in the den and also gain the 'coolness' factor' (btw, RCA went to 17 y.o.'s room in 3rd story attic for xbox and HDTV.) We thought about purchasing a plasma but then considered the potential burn in issues with 8 y.o. and gaming 'pauses' (supposedly corrected, but...) Looked at the Sony's and Panasonic's (very good) but thought they were kinda pricey, especially since prices have been falling so much lately. So...Costco has a coupon for $250.00 off and we thought, what the hell, and set off one Saturday morning and boy-howdy, they 'disappeared' in seconds flat, lines at the door etc. Planted wife at/on one and went to get a cart: no remorse whatsoeverl. So...this LCD HDTV ROCKS!!! Can't say it enough about the picture!!! Currently running this with a Direct TV HD (talk about issues...) and a Sony DVD player. This LCD HDTV has so many options to adjust the color, but it seems to have been adjusted so well at the factory. IT HAS A GREAT PICTURE. We had the initial and very minor 'hum' running the with onboard speakers, but once they were turned off or unplugged and we ran it through my 5.1 Dolby receiver there was no trace. Vizio may have had some problems in the past, but they certainly have this one right. Highly recommended, not only bang for the buck, but for the bang. Stoked.
