I am a die hard Samsung Fan and still one today - I bought this TV because it was on sale and you could not beat the price. Other reviews I saw made the TV Seem wonderful and they were correct. The picture quality is amazing and when playing my PS3 or watching Blue-Ray is brilliant! I had a little skepticism when purchasing this TV because I don't know to much about the RCA name but they have not let me down at all. The features are all there - the picture is there - the only downfall....Sound! This was not a huge concern because I have surround sound and come on if you are going to buy a nice LED why not have the sound to follow. But yes, without the sound it's a old school radio. If you don't have and not going to purchase at least a sound bar do not buy this TV because the sound is embarrassing. Ultra-Thin! I love this about the LED TV's because they are so thin and light. They look good on the stand and pretty much flush when on the wall. If you are looking for a cheap alternative to a higher brand this would be it. Hope this helps with your decisions of buying your next TV

When I saw the price ($430 on sale from $700) I figured it was worth a try. There were no reviews posted so I dug around. Most said sound quality is poor so I bought a $80 Visio soundbar and it sounds very good now!! Slow to change channels (60 vs 120 Hz). Don't pay full price and get a soundbar if you don't already have a sound system.

This TV is the first flat panel that I have ever bought.... and I must say I am very pleased with my purchase. The picture is amazing, clear and crisp, colors are wonderful! The sound quality is poor, which is to be expected. You don't see a subwoofer and 3 way speakers inside a laptop either right? So it really does sound like my laptop. I already have an RCA home theatre system, and through that it's just plain perfect. The surround system is almost a must have for this TV or any other flat panel. As I said, picture perfect, easy to use setup, and the price is just right for an LED. I have had this TV for 2 months, I use it A LOT! And have had absolutely no issues whatsoever.

Ordered this site to store and it took a week and a half to arrive. Took it home on a Wed. evening, hooked it up on Thursday, seemed okay, then on Friday, it wouldn't turn on. Followed the extremely brief troubleshooting instructions in the manual to no avail, and online help was similarly non-existent at the RCA site. For the one day that it worked, I thought the picture was only just okay, though to be fair, we don't have an HD setup in the room we put the set. When we returned it to the store, the employee who helped cart it in from our car said they'd sold 11 of those sets, and 10 of them had been returned. Re-hooked up my ancient but faithful Sony WEGA, and the picture looked fabulous.

This product has great HD picture but the sound isn't the greatest. It comes out of the back of the TV rather than the front, so it sounds different than what I am used to. I know that these TV's have poor sound quality because they assume that consumers will put in an aftermarket sound system, but they shouldn't make TVs with poor sound quality because of this. Other than the sound quality, this is a great TV.

Decent TV and great features for the price. The LCD screen is not perfect but for the price it is great. This is taking the place of a 42" LG because the bulbs in the unit are starting to fail. The RCA has more that enough inputs and it works great with a home theater PC. The sound from the speakers is very tiny but I use a receiver so that is not an issue for me. What is nice about the led system is that there is virtually no heat emanating from the unit. I purchased this because I cannot see spending 2 or 3 times the amount on a 42" television and I am satisfied with my purchase.

This television is everything plus more than I was looking for and much less expensive than I expected. Yes, the sound could be better and lacks the depth I would prefer (and I'm not picky about sound) but I found that all of the reviews I read for any television like this were bad so it's fine for me and eventually I'll probably add some sort of sound system to it. I do not regret the purchase at all, I love it, and the shipping was fast too!
