"Shortcomings do not detract from the enjoyment."4.0 starson by waldmark
Pros: Easy set-up.
Big screen matters. Blu-ray very good.
Good color rendition.
Passive 3D enjoyable (loss of resolution not annoying).
Very good intuitive remote.
Cons: Black levels too light.
Excessive backlight bleeding in the corners.
Some smearing during rapid movement.
Glossy screen reflects everything.
2D low-definition material suffers from too little resolution on too big a screen.
Summary: If you want to be picky, there is plenty to cause you angst. However, for the size, features and price, this TV is a very good value. The TV is installed in my living room, replacing a 67" Samsung DLP and does a great job entertaining my kids. While the CNET review does accurately portray the unit's shortcomings, none of them are sufficient to detract from enjoying whatever I'm displaying. I definitely recommend CNET's picture settings for viewing movies in low light.
