I have a playstation 3 and would love to play it on such a big tv. Problem is, I'm not sure if I can. Does anyone know if this tv is good for things such as playing the playstation 3?

This has a absolutely gorgeous picture. Could not ask for anything better. But if you want to use this for gaming the mouse is a little slow. You will need one with 2 to 3 response time. Even though its says 240 Hz you can only input 60 Hz no matter what hookup you want to use, so you will not be able to use this for 3D like with Nvidia 3D because that requires a 120Hz input signal. It will make an absolute fabulous monitor. But like I said before you will be amazed at the clarity and brilliance of this TV. I own a Panasonic 42" plasma and this TV makes it look like a old analog TV even though it on the same cable and HD channel. I can't tell you about the sound because I am running it through a surround system.

After a lot of research (but apparently not enough), I found this great deal on Walmart.com for a Proscan 42 inch lcd tv. However, from the start I had a huge problem with the sound syncing with the picture. I read the manual and discovered that although the manual contained words from the English language, it was clearly not written by anyone with any knowledge of the English language. I cycled through every menu on the tv to no avail. I then called Proscan and was on hold for over 45 minutes. I was never able to talk to anyone or leave a message. I then sent Proscan an email. It has been 2 weeks and I have not received a response. I then googled the specific problem and discovered numerous posts. I returned the tv to the Walmart store. Walmart was really good about taking it back.

I bought this product 3 weeks ago and its been fantastic, in inital set up with my PS3 it seemed to take awhile to recognize the input, but after the first time hooking it up it has worked perfectly, so user friendly and great quality, worth every cent.

After spending what felt like an eternity researching comparable tvs, the price and the specs on this tv were too good to pass up. Picture was great, and the sound was ok... but you get what you pay for. There was a very noticeable time lag between the audio and the video. It annoyed me at first, but I decided that I could live with it considering the fact that I paid less than $600. If you plan on playing video games, this time lag is a complete deal breaker. On the 10th day that I had this tv, the left side of the screen began to flutter and eventually went black. After a while it went back to normal, and then a short while after that it began the same song and dance all over again. It was as if someone had drawn a line down the center of the screen and blacked out the entire left side. That was the final straw for me. I returned it that afternoon. Walmart was great about the return, and I turned right back around and bought another tv from them. this time I went with a mainstream brand. If you're looking for a good deal and a big bang for your buck, consider yourself warned.

I have looked into buying a new flat screen for a long time. I was waiting until my old 32" tv went out, but it is still running and I was tired of waiting. I have been watching prices and reviews for a long time before I finally decided on this tv. It is wonderful. I got it for a great price. I also purchased the extended warranty.

I bought this TV for my husband to fill his "wish list" for our anniversary. I bought, picked it up, and set it up all by myself! When I turned on the TV and did the channel scan, I couldn't believe how awsome the picture, color, and sound is. My husband is a die-hard Sony fan, and this TV is no comparison... beats all the big name brands hands down. Definately worth the money!
